    So just recently i have noticed a "stuttering" issue. I will be on my fav website"TPU" or doing anything, And my computer will "freeze" for a whole...... 3 seconds, Then catch back up really fast to what i was doing. for instance, I will be typing and all i see is | then i wait a second and the partial sentence "I will be typing and al" will just pop up. It is quite fucking annoying. My hdd is fine i just ran some benchmarks on it. So.... WTF M8? anyone halp me? :toast: Ty in advance.

    Sounds like something working in the background. I suggest you grab Process Explorer to see what is going on.

    he means look in task manager and see if anything is sucking the shit out of your resources.

    sounds like a driver issue to me. Open your device manager and make sure you arent showing any yelllow '!'

    Hit your mobo website and get the drivers... it might help to eliminate it or begin the process of elimination.

    If that does not fix then your hdd could be on its way out.

    It's a Microsoft freebie and a very powerful alternative to the Task Manager. It will likely confuse the shit out of you, but it's worth it for the depth of info it gives you. :D

    If anything is hogging your system, this baby will reveal it.
