    Win 8 stuttering, video, audio, desktop use


    after about 10 to 20 minutes of use the whole computer begins to stutter, audio video... the mouse skips around and it is almost unusable

    just upgraded from 7 ultimate to 8 pro, and ive included the diagnostics

    what in the world is causing this?

    Did you clean install or upgrade? And does all your hardware have Win 8 drivers?

    I'd clean install. Something screwed the upgrade up. You need Win 8 drivers for chipset, sound, gpu, and any specific driver level programs (like your printer).

    I've heard some of the Catalyst drivers have this effect.. make sure you have the latest drivers for your video card.

    Do a clean install. Trust me, it's worth the hassle.
