Sudden performance stutters and buzzing audio

Q: Sudden performance stutters and buzzing audio

This occurred today, Just after I had installed a copy of The Secret World, I was in a skype call and playing Dawn of war 2. I noticed the issue, but dismissed it as the computer was simply using too much CPU or something (I apologize, I am only just starting to get into the specifics with computers, sorta new). So I did the obvious, turn it off then on (via restart). Nothing changed, so I shrugged it off an played one game of League of Legends with minimal success not due to computer problems. I restarted after that with a manually scheduled Disk Check. Did it's thing for three hours, came back, messed around, still the stutter and buzzing. Did some fishing around on the net, did a sfc/scannow (don't know what that did), and uninstalled any background components to Norton and MacAfee if they weren't already gone, and updated my realtek codices.

One forum I read with similar symptoms suggested it was my motherboard going. I just want to be sure.

System stuff (it's also on my profile to the best of my abilities)
Computer: Dell XPS 15z
CPU: Intel Core i5 2401M
GFX: Intel(R) HD Graphics Family/ NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M
Motherboard: Dell 0XK6HV A00 (according to CPU-Z)
(I'd need help finding other stuff, but that's another forum issue :V)

P.S. Move this thread to a more appropriate area if it is necessary.

Preferred Solution: Sudden performance stutters and buzzing audio

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Sudden performance stutters and buzzing audio

This happens every minute or so (i did a test, they are about 1 minute thirty seconds apart) and the freeze buzzes last for about half a second.

So, I downloaded LatencyMon as stated in threads concerning people with my same problem. The closest I got to finding someone with my same problem was when they were having problems with usb.sys or something or other, can't recall the exact filename. What makes my predicament tricky, or so I think, is that the problem is being caused by what seems to be a binary file within System32\drivers named DDDriver64Dcsa.sys and another was ACPI.sys, the former having the highest DPC routine execution time (501188) and the latter having the highest ISR routine execution time. (82.5)

From what I'm reading, I'm interpreting it that DDDriver64Dcsa.sys is the cause of my problems. I've disabled ACPI.sys and it has had no effect on the audio stutters. The good thing is that I know what to try next, the bad thing is that I don't know what to do with this other file. It is a binary file within some other package. Systemexplorer.net has it that "This file belongs to product Dell Diags Device Driver and was developed by company Dell Computer Corporation. This file has description DDDriver.sys." I'm a bit scared to just up and delete it, as I'm not entirely sure what it does.

A:Audio Stutters and Buzzing Caused by DPC Latency

Amazing that I found this. Same exact issue. For about 3 days or so. DDDriver64Dcsa.sys seems to be the culprit but I am not sure how to proceed or exactly how to get rid of it.

Every once in a while, seemingly at random (could be playing a game, browsing the internet, sometimes just after start-up) I will hear a short burst of buzzing (not static) from my speakers. This happens for a second or two, stops for a second or two, and then starts again. Also, at the same time the buzzing is happening, my whole computer will stutter....the mouse will jump, the display will stutter, the whole computer seems to quickly freeze and unfreeze for a second or two, then be fine, then stutter again. Basically it makes it unusable.
The only "cure" Ive found so far is to just restart the computer, and it usually goes away.
Any ideas?

I have been having some strange issues with my PC lately that are driving me absolutely nuts. Periodically the mouse will start becoming very laggy in a way where the pointer is almost just skipping around the screen getting stuck for seconds at a time. Like stuttering. If I'm listening to music or watching a video the video will freeze for split seconds at a time and the audio will sound scratched... I have checked drivers, I have run virus scans, I have done memory tests, I have done cpu tests, I have cleaned registries, I have tried different mice, and have checked temps. Everything seems to check out fine. Like I said its not all the time but becoming more and more frequent. I haven't found much on the internet yet, and I'm out of any ideas of what could be going on. Any suggestions would be awesome, and if you need anymore information let me know. Thanks in advance!

Hello everybody,
What my system is:
Acer VN7-791G Gaming Notebook
Specs:
Intel Core i5 4210H
GTX 860M 2GB
8GB 1600 MHz DDR3
750GB 5400RPM SATA

What my problems are:

- 10-20 minutes after I start up my PC, my mouse cursor starts stuttering. It just teleports from place to place, or just plain freezes. Touchpad does the same thing. Also, it doesn't matter if I'm just browsing or running an app.

- During this "stutter phase", as I call it, if I'm watching or playing anything I hear very loud sound tears from the lap top. These tears stop as soon as I take my hands off the mouse.

- Also during this phase: If I'm playing a game, my frame rate drops to unplayable levels when I'm touching the mouse, it reverts back to perfect fps as soon as I stop messing with the mouse. Same thing happen with videos, they slow down and cause disgusting sound tears when I touch the mouse, and revert back to normal after I leave it alone.

What I have tried:
- Updated my chipset drivers.
- Updated my GPU drives.
- Updated my mouse drivers.
- Switched mouses.
- Ran a disk scan using cmd.
- Closed a bunch of unnecessary programs and tasks during gaming.
- Set Windows Updates to manual for some reason.
- Found out that nVidia ShadowPlay was marked "running" and closed it.

I have an HP ENVY 15 laptop with Windows 8.1 that I've been using for two years (forced upgrade to 8.1 sometime during then), and in the past few months, it started doing this.
So, for quite a few months now, when I am playing Dota 2 or watching youtube videos, my computer will suddenly lag and a screeching noise will come through my headphones. It essentially freezes up and I have trouble getting the mouse and keyboard to respond as well. After about a minute of screeching and intense lag, it slowly starts working again.
I searched the internet and found this archived thread about an ASUS laptop that was experiencing the same problem as mine. http://rog.asus.com/forum/archive/index.php/t-1496
In that thread, they seemed to think the network drivers or Mcafee was causing the problem. I don't have Mcafee, and I updated my Realtek LAN drivers, and the problem has not gone away. In that thread, someone posted a youtube video showing the lag, and it is exactly the same thing that is happening to me:

So I am having this problem for a while now.. Every time I play a game like Minecraft or Borderlands 2 my computer freezes without having the ability to move the mouse or anything else.. I can't use the task manager or lock the screen.. It's a complete freeze.. And it happened once when I was listening to music without opening anything else, I seen that case before but not with PCs I seen it with Playstation 1 when a game doesn't work properly.. I doubt there is a dump file since it's not being able to save anything after the freeze.. It happened more than once about 6 times.. I would like to know what is wrong with it, I asked few people and they said it might be a memory leak, but I don't believe this is the case.

P.S my windows 7 is a dual boot with Ubuntu 12.10 using WUBI (I don't think it's the reason since my laptop is the same settings)

Hello,


Starting about a week ago whenever any audio is being played through my computer (speaker or headphone) I will hear a buzzing sound and occasionally the audio with skip. This happens weather I am playing audio that is being streamed from the internet or that is on my computer directly.

I have tried several things to fix this problem including installing all windows updates that are available as well as updating my audio drivers.

I am running windows 7 home premium 64 bit. My computer model is hp pavilion dv7t quad 6100 and I have IDT high definition audio codec driver version 6.10.6381.0 which my computer says is the latest driver version. Updating to this version has not solved the problem, however.

Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated. If there is additional info that is neccesary, please let me know and I will post it.

A:IDT High Def Audio, buzzing sound when playing any sort of audio.

Unplug the speakers from the PC and see if you still get the buzz with headphones. Some "buzz" problems can be related to "AC power ground loop" problems if some separately powered devices are connected.

Noise and skipping are problems that have been posted here before. There is no "one fix" for that. There are possible hardware problems, drivers (including video drivers), Interrupt issues, Wi Fi caused, etc.

Skipping can be because the other device that is on the shared Interrupt that the sound is on is interrupting the sound. Sound is always on a shared interrupt (IRQ) with a higher priority device. You can try this: go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for the IDT and then LEFT click "Uninstall". DO NOT check the box to uninstall the drivers. Then restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect the sound and reinstall it and some times put it on a different shared IRQ.

I think the audio drive is to blame. Cause if it was brought from the cpu or processor , it will halt your audio system and you can hear nothing.
Maybe you need to try installing the version of drive which is the oldest. Good luck to you

Hi,

My audio has recently stated to stutter. Kind of like a cd skipping.
Physical memory in task manager is ram right? Well there is enough there for it to not be the computer being loaded.

This happens when I play MP3s from the HDD, as well as playing music from sites like last.fm.

This is when playing through WMP, I have installed winamp and its there to.

Hi,

I am having this really weird problem. Suppose I am watching a movie and a friend of mine decides to message me through google talk. Then for the time that gtalk goes "ting ting" the audio on the movie stutters, and as soon as the gtalk sound stops, it becomes normal. Now this specifically uccurs only with gtalk and gmail. I have played a movie and different music together and nothing happens, they both play normally.

Wonder whats wrong?

Thanks!

A:Audio stutters with gtalk

Three possible issues
driver issues (not that likely if able to have other multiple audio feed at once, bu possible)
If you are using x86 apps a x64 app simutaniously (gtalk being x86), can cause conflicts (this of course only applies if Win x64 installed)
Most likely candidate in your case is running short of memory. To check this, when noticing these issues, right-click on an empty area of taskbar and open Task Manager. Keep an eye on the memory levels. If running short, you may need to look at upgrading RAM, or as a quick fix,bumping up Virtual Memory.

Don't hesitate to ask if you get stuck

Hi everyone!
I'm not sure if this is the right section to post this, since I'm not sure if my problem is hardware or software related, so please bear with me :)

I'm running Windows XP SP3, and I've been having a problem for several days now, where I can pretty much only run one slightly demanding program at a time.

The issue occurs whenever a program is actively running and I try running another one. What happens then is I get stutters at pretty much everything.
For example, running Mozilla Firefox goes smoothly, even with a lot of tabs open (say 12 tabs). If I minimize Firefox and run any game, however, the game's graphics and audio would both stutter and break every few seconds. I'd have to close the browser completely to run the game smoothly, and I'd still get such stutters during my anti-virus auto-update (I'm running Nod32, definitely the lightest AV out there).

Another example is I've been running a program update just now, and I see now that even my cursor's movement is broken, as well as any animation on screen in Firefox (be it flash or even a gif image).

The issue only started about a week back, and I haven't installed any new hardware or software. I've considered system restore but found it was turned off

I tried disabling a lot of the programs running in the background (now I only have Nod32 and Skype constantly running), and it still didn't solve the problem.

I'm not sure what to check and how, or even if this is an OS problem or a hardware ... Read more

A:Graphic and Audio Stutters

"I have tons of stuff to back up"

Not bothering to make backups until you run into a situation where you might have to make them is sheer folly. What if the hard drive suddenly failed? You wouldn't even be able to make backups if that happened.

Try running the Disk Defragmenter on the C: drive

Consider having your system checked for performance-sapping malware (antivirus software cannot detect everything - you need specialised software which detects everything that's currently running on your PC.

And get those backups done while you're able to or one day you'll regret it.

Recently, I have gotten an ASUS notebook as a gift and I've noticed that there is one big issue with it. Whenever I stream music from Spotify or watch a movie on Netflix, the audio begins to create a crackling static noise. The issue with the stuttering is whenever I have something playing in the background such as Spotify, whenever I begin to switch tabs or load a new site, the audio begins to stutter and mess up. I don't know what the problem is. I've tried updating my drivers. I've tried changing the default playback on my playback device as well but to no avail. My computer has the Realtek High Definition Audio driver. I have heard that Realtek drivers and ASUS machines don't usually function well together but I am not sure if that's the case. Any one know anything that might help?

A:Audio stutters and creates static

I have a desktop with an ASUS motherboard and RealTek and no problems. I have not seen any trend of RealTek problems with an Asus laptop.

One thing that is a know contributor to crackling/popping is Wi-Fi. If possible connect that using a wired internet connection and see if you have the same problems.

Another issue is other drivers (e.g. video).

Memory (amount) can be another possible issue.

Finally, sound is always on a shared Interrupt (IRQ) with a higher priority device and the higher priority device, in some cases, can cause interruptions in the audio (stuttering).

Hi,

This might be a hardware related problem but I decided to post it here as I'm not sure what the problem might be.

Recently I have installed a TPLINK TL-WN951N wireless adapter for our new internet. Now, when I stream videos in youtube or any other website, it often stutters.

What's even worse is that if I'm downloading something, this problem occurs much more often and happen also in games, movies and mp3 files in the harddrive.

This was not happening before installing the wireless adapter which makes me a bit suspicious. Before installing the adapter I did not have a high speed connection so it may also be a harddrive issue.

My specs are (the ones on my profile are old and I can't remember how to change them).

Win 7 professional 64 bit.
Intel I5 2500K 3.3Ghz + Overclocked to 4.5Ghz
4 gigs ram.
Asus Geforce GTX 560TI gfx card.


While downloading something, I monitored my cpu and ram usage and there is a huge spike in the cpu usage when the stuttering occurs.

The PC is quite new and has no performance issues except this issue which started happening after installing the TPLINK wireless adapter.

Any help on this issue is much appreciated. Thank you.

A:Audio and video stutters, especially while downloading

Narrowed the issue down to my wifi adapter. Asked in the networking hardware forums so this can be closed/ignored. Thanks.

Well recently ever since i downloaded Tune-Up Utilities 2012, I ran a diagnosis and it defragmented my disk and cleared up some start-up issues, well after restarting my computer the start-up did turn out much better then usual but as i was watching a YouTube video my screen froze and the audio began stuttering.

It stopped after about 2-3 minutes but after i had hit alt+f4 and ctrl+alt+delete, I then proceeded to play some Counter Strike : Global Offensive and In-Game my computer repeated the exact same process... It happened several times after that too. I restarted my computer and still it occurred, i updated my graphics drivers and it still is occurring. I also uninstalled Tune-Up Utilities 2012 and it still occurred. I do not want to re-install Windows 7 since i'm not sure where my disc is... I'm not even sure if it came with a disk since i got this laptop used.

Please any solutions or any help would be very helpful. Ask me any questions because i may have forgotten something in this post.

I have had my XPS for about 5 months and I have had some problems with it when trying to play games on it.
On many game such as Dead Island, Crysis, Command and Conquer Zero Hour, Killing Floor, Garrys Mod, Homeword 2 and maybe some others.  My system will usually play them without any problems for a while, and then, seemingly at random, the screen will freeze(not go black, just freezes), and the audio will stutter on what sounds like a 0.1 second loop.  This sometimes continues uninterrupted and also sometimes the screen will resume moving for about a half of a second, but then freeze again and the audio will start playing the game music as if nothing happened.
It never recovers however.  If I try to go to task manager and end the process,  then my computer will lock up and require a hard restart.
Sometimes it happens right when I start playing the games and sometimes I can play for an hour or two.
One interesting thing though.  My laptop never freezes on Runescape, IL Sturmovic 1946, and Dead Rising 2(DR2 is very graphically intensive).
This has been happening for about 3 months.  This did not happen when I first got my computer.
My specs:
Dell XPS L502X Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M 2gb. Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2630QM CPU @ 2.00GHz(with turbo up to 2.90). RAM, 8gb. If you need anymore info then tell me.

Currently I'm playing music on Google Play music which plays fine until I'm about to click on another page or go to the home of google play for example and it stutters for a few seconds.Also not sure if this is related, when I use my bluetooth speaker, audio stutters really bad, worse than when using internal speakers. Possibly two different problems but for now I really only care about the internal speakers stuttering as I rarely use my bluetooth speakers on my pc. Any hardware can be specified.

Hello,
My computer takes 3 minutes to shut down. Also, it occasionally has problems where the audio stutters, and the only way I can fix this is by restarting. Unfortunately, it takes the computer 3 minutes to shut down, and probably a little over 1 minute to start. A few weeks ago, it took 15 seconds to shut down, and about 6 seconds to start up. This is a Windows 8.1 computer. I am not sure if the audio problem is the computer, or the speakers/headphones. I do think it is the computer, though.
Anybody have any ideas on how I can fix this?

Hello everyone,

I'm new to the forum and this is my first post. I have been having a nagging problem with my Thinkpad R500 for a little over a week now.

Audio playback in iTunes (and other players such as Winamp) stumbles and stutters whenever I open a webpage or basically if there's any kind of bandwidth activity on - it's becoming pretty damn unbearable to say the least!

I checked to see if it might be an issue with the WLAN connection by hooking it up directly to the router by means of a network cable, but the issues persists.

I tried searching on the web and other forums, but couldn't really find a solution.

Any hints/advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

My computer now gets BSOD randomly after I upgraded my video card from ATI 3850 to a NVIDIA GTX 460.. It doesn't crash in games, any games (I tried several games include SC2 beta, team fortress 2, and some others from steam), it only crashes under normal windows usage (browsing the web, youtube, music etc..)

I am pretty sure that the GTX 460 isn't defected as I have 2 GTX 460s, both of them crashed on this computer but both worked well on my other Vista computer.

I would be really appreciated for any helps...

I have P50 thinkpad - I used it for home recording with very old USB audio interface - Presonus Audiobox.It is an old hardware - 10 yo or so but I had no major issues with it - apart from quality of D/A A/D convertersand latency problems when trying to use plaugins in DAW.Recently I upgraded audio interface to ZOOM U44. It is USB 2.0 based - fairly new (2yo or so ) technology.You can clearly hear the difference in converter quality. However to my utter dismay I cannot get U44 towork with P50 at all. The simplest tack of playing MP3s with U44 set as playback device results in audiohaving constant "hiccups" - every 5-10 secs it halts and skips. I unplugged everything, reinstalled U44 driver,tried every port on P50 (they are all USB 3.0) and the result is the same - does not matter if I use DAW orjust MP3 player. I have no such issue with AudioBox - playback is flawless. How can I solve it?

So here's my problem

When I watch YouTube videos I get random stutters where the sound skips. The image doesn't seem to freeze though, just the sound

I also get issues with the sound streaming music online, where it pauses for a second and stutters even though it's not buffering.

When this happens, NT Kernel & System shoots up in task manager and uses more CPU than the browser. This by the way happens in every browser, IE, Chrome or Firefox.

It doesn't happen when playing music in iTunes or watching videos from my hard drive.

That being said I'm not posting about a buffering type stutter, I am aware of that and this is not it. This is like basically suddenly the computer has a big spike in memory or cpu usage and the video/sound clip stutters for a sec. But it happens often enough to be very annoying. In a 15 min YouTube clip it happened 10 times.

I have reinstalled my IDT High Definition Codec and my Intel HD Graphics 4000 driver, but still the problem persists.

Any thoughts of what I can do?

A:Sound stutters when streaming video or audio online.

Try this test: Start a Youtube video and immediately hit the pause button. Watch the movement of the red progress bar until it fully loads the video. This obviously eliminates any buffering issues if the problem is still there when you try to play the video this way. You might also want to do a speed test on you internet connection. Here are my results:



Now, I know you are convinced that it is absolutely not a buffering issue and you have done nice testing to that end; however, I would still try the tests as described above. Good luck.

Win 7, 8 gigs ram, dual core. 
 
When I have several tracks up and want to listen to one of the tracks and edit it, (using Cakewalk Sonar X3) the audio stutters and video gets jerky also. 
 
Question is: Would that situation be helped by going to a SSD hybrid drive? 
 
Is the CPU just too slow to keep up? It's audio at 24 bits 96,000 samples per second. And maybe 4 tracks. Is that too much for a CPU to keep up with? There is no video. That is about 9.2 megabits per second to deal with. What would be the major slowdown here? 
When I get through, say, adding a track, the audio comes out fine, it is just in the editing process while listening to a track and recording another that the audio stutters but it ends up ok, the stuttering audio is not recorded, the result is fine.

Yesterday afternoon, I was playing Grand Theft Auto IV on my PC and while I was in-game, the sound started to crackle and slow down and then suddenly turned off (sound only). I was still able to play the game without any issues but there was no sound!

I exited to Desktop (Windows 7 SP1) and there was NO SOUND AT ALL! Nothing made the sound work. I had to reboot the computer and then the sound came back but after a couple of minutes, again, the sound stopped working. This time, I was NOT playing any game, I was just surfing the web!

I rebooted again and then went to YouTube and tried playing a video; the video played like slow-motion (couple of FPS) and there was no sound again!

Heyo!

I have some serious audio issues that seems to point to some type of hardware or driver I recently installed. I have a lot of popping, cracking and stutters that actually make video playback stutter when it happens too. I play a lot of video games, it doesn't seem to impact games outside of having stutters and pops (i.e.: the game doesn't stutter or freeze like video).

I want to say this started happening when my machine mysteriously crashed a few weeks ago. My USB portable hard drive would cause Windows7 to hang on startup and would take 30 minutes to load Windows. After that time, I noticed my audio had broke it's drivers and I reinstalled new ones for an external sound card. I used the computer with the broken audio for another week and now I'm just getting tired of the issues. I assumed it was just with the sound card I was using, thus I removed the hardware and went back to onboard audio with my old Gigabyte Motherboard. However, the issues are still present even though I'm using a different audio source and utilizing different (REALTEK) drivers that are up-to-date.

My wife said she uninstalled some codec, but I have no idea what ones were uninstalled. I suspect that could be the issue, however my Catalysis Control Center for ATI is no longer working either. I assume my graphical drivers could be a cause as well. If not, I'm at a loss other than the recent memory I added. I put in 6 gigs of memory (2x 2gigs + 2x 1gigs) when of course, my 32bit Windows 7 Ultimate... Read more

For about the past 2 weeks I started having a very annoying and strange problem watching videos and listening to any music files on my computer. When watching streaming internet videos, at random moments, for example, for 2 seconds in a 15 minute clip, a loud audio/video stutter will occur, even when the video has completely buffered, if someone is in the middle of saying something one syllable will be repeated 3-5 times, video will hitch, and then things will continue on as normal. At first I thought it was just on one site but its happening on multiple sites, in both flash and divx players, both of which I have up to date.
Now I don't think its even an internet issue, because its happening with video and music files I have on both internal and external hard drives. At seemingly random intervals the video will hitch, a syllable of dialogue will stutter, for 2-4 seconds, and then things will continue on. I have a new Gateway laptop that is running Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit SP1. It has Intel Pentium Dual CPU T3400 @2.16ghz and 4GB of RAM.
I didn't have any of these issues prior to the last few weeks. I have broadband wireless internet, and other computers on the network play media files fine. I have kept up with windows updates, run regular malware bytes scans that have come up empty, and everything else is running fine and normal so I don't think its any sort of virus or malware causing this.

Right now I'm actually at work, tinkering with my boyfriend's computer because of a sudden drop in performance. For the first 6 months that he's had this computer, its worked like a dream. He used his computer primarily for gaming (World of Warcraft, GuildWars and the such) and could run those programs while running iTunes simultaneously with no performance issues.

However, this has all changed this summer when (for unknown reasons) his computer's performance has dropped to new lows. When any program that uses a decent amount of resources is run, all sound and video stutters and gets choppy (like a skipping CD). I have scanned the computer for any sort of malware that could be messing with his performance, but it seems clean as a whistle. I've tried shutting down as many background programs as possible, but the CPU usage still shoots up to 99% percent when even iTunes is opened. This problem has persisted through 3 reformats, so I don't believe its software related.

As of now, we are thinking its hardware. The computer only has 768MB of RAM, which seems low for a gaming computer (even one with XP, which he has) but for the first 6 months this was enough to run the computer smoothly. Perhaps lots of dust and crud around the fan near the video card could be the culprit? Or something that I haven't guessed? Right now, we're trying to fix it without buying new hardware, but I realize this might be necessary.

I am sorry if this is not the correct forum I should've posted this but I don't believe this is a hardware issue and I really don't feel like reinstalling Windows and formatting because I've done this many times due to Windows 10 having many issues and I've lost and reinstalled my programs one too many times.

PROBLEM:
Usually I can figure these things out on my own, but right now I have no idea what is causing my problem. I am having low FPS even in games like League of Legends, where uncapped it would stay at around 180 and then randomly for a minute go down to 40. Now, 40 is not a bad number, but when it goes down like that it seriously stutters the whole time to the point where it's unplayable. Games like The Crew, which is rather heavy and ran fine before on 30 FPS now barely runs with 15 all the time. Basically, I know that my laptop can do much better because it did, but only the last few days has it performed awfully on every game. The most intriguing thing is that it's not overheating like many would assume. I've played heavy games at really high temperatures like 95 C without a problem. Now, amazingly, I'm having problems at 82 C (GPU) and 88 C (CPU) while playing The Crew - getting only 15 FPS.
 
As you can see, super low temperatures in comparison to what I had before yet low FPS..

I've run virus check and spyware check loads of times. No viruses found. A few spyware issues found but now taken care of. I have reinstalled Radeon Drivers and .Net Framework in hope of solving this but no luck. I have even reversed back to Catalyst 7.2 but the poor performance is still there.

Hey All,
 
Thanks for reading this boring post and your attempts to help me.
I have an Acer I7 laptop which has Win 8 pro installed. Some time ago I found my laptop slower and last week it almost grinded to a halt. 
I tried my macafee which came with the laptop and also mbam. They found cookies but nothing serious, or so i think. My speed is back but I don't trust my system anymore. What's more sometimes, at no particular interval, I can't reach my network via WiFi. Internet is also unreachable at these times. 
I ran RoqueKiller which comes up whith a filename. I tried to rename that file but it wouldn't let me until I chose to do that in safe mode. By then I had an other problem. My WiFi connection wouldn't come up again after restart. So I named it back tot it's original name. (see the rk log)
 
I am not too particular to where I get my software from though my Win 8 is legit. The rest is from internet. I can't however pinpoint any one internet install after which I experienced these problems.
 
I hope one of you can make something of this story. I can't.
 
Thanks in advance for your input Guys!

If the issue is strictly with Internet browsing then the place to start is with the ISP. I would suggest contacting MediaCom and explaining what is happening and have them check the connection, settings and their network.

Cheers.

Hi Guys

My computer has literally in one day gone from running like a dream to being the slowest machine alive - (It took 6 minutes to run HiJackthis)

Can you have a look and see if anything pops out at you?

Here's how it happened:

I was at a friends house. He was out for a while, so I was playing a ame on his laptop, an MMORPG called Grand Chase. His laptop has no sound, so I decided to use my laptop for some music. For some reason, my internet connection was terrible, and this game requires a good connection, which is why I was using his to play.

Anyways, everything was running fine on my laptop. iTunes was running like it should, my music was playing flawlessly. Then, suddenly, without my doing anything, it started to glitch and lag, almost like a CD skipping but ten times worse. I grew confused, and shut down iTunes and restarted it, but the same problem occurred. So I did my full maintenance - a virus scan [using Avast! AntiVirus Home Edition], a Spyware and Adware scan [using Spybot - Search and Destroy and Ad-Aware Anniversary Edition, respectively], did a disk defragmentation, and finally ran a full clean using CCleaner to fix registry errors and delete my temporary internet files. All in all, this all removed a wide array of problems.

Afterwards, my overall performance improved. I got my internet speed back for the most part, and most programs run normally again. However, my audio and video are still glitching, in quite a strange manner.

Any video I watch on youtube seems to glitch for about a minute in, depending on the length of the video, but then runs perfectly normally. However, if I try watching the same video on another site, like Myspace, it glitches and... Read more

I'm running Windows XP SP2.

Approximately a week ago my computer began acting very strangely -- Sometimes, my startup programs wouldn't launch until half an hour or so after logging in. Programs will randomly lock up and not launch when I attempt to start them (although the process will be in task manager) and my taskbar/explorer freezes extremely often (at least once an hour).

I can't recall any major change I've made to my computer to cause this.

Also, I ran a Dell hard drive diagnostic directly after this began, it failed with return code 7.
