Solved Stuttering while playing games

Hi guys,

First of all merry christmas :)

I have a weird issue where when I play games my computer, including audio and video, sometimes hangs for 1 second and then resumes again. This seems to happen in every game I play and it's very frustrating.

I checked my processes and I do have a 'System interrupts' process that sometimes pops up. I run Windows 8.1 , have 8GB ram, and use a GTX680 with the latest nvidia drivers.

Attached you can find my DXDIAG report.

I ran CCleaner and also did some virus scans, but no luck.

Any thoughts guys?

well be a scientist and start experimenting!! come on man..

1. turn off all sound in game.. run game. does it stutter?

2. disable sound in your actual windows 8.1 - go into device manager etc.. then run game.. stutter????!!

3. when running a game, (if it doesn't crash it) press shift,ctrl, and ESC. Look for whats using hard drive and look through performance for any % like disk usage..

4. what games are stuttering?

i mean your problem is so in-general (lag in games) its so hard to determine where to start.. but yeah, drivers are a must..

video drivers, hard drive updates, windows updates, sound driver update a huge one....

but if your sound and video hangs.. its hard drive or memory trying to sort it out..

you usually should run games in a clean environment meaning you disabled all services and background apps you aren't using because you are playing a game.. and when you restart your computer all your services will come back anyway..

if you dont know how to do this post here again..

Hi there,

The issue I stated having isn't that common, else I wouldn't have posted here. Task manager isn't going to show whatever is causing latency issues. I used LatencyMon and solved it, there was an issue with Nvidia drivers, after reinstalling it all seems to work fine now.

uh don't take this the wrong way buddy but Yes it is common.. and guess what? it was so common that it was the #1 thing to do to fix problems - install correct and Latest drivers buddy!

that the 1st thing people do to start resolving issues..

my list of experiments was assuming you already installed your latest drivers from each manufacturing website of all your peripherals on your system.. which YOU even said you did buddy!

have 8GB ram, and use a GTX680 with the latest nvidia drivers.
so all in all, glad you got such a common problem fixed..

(lag while playing games is extremely common.)

hopefully you don't take this the wrong way.. but that's yet another common problem on forums.. people taking things the wrong way.
