Computer GPU Stuttering

Tigital

So, I've been getting stuttering in my computer since 2 days ago. I searched on Google about the problem for the past few days.
I did chkdsk, reg clean, defragmenting, disk cleanup, virus scan, turning antivirus off, reinstalling drivers, updating drivers, unplugging USB devices, monitoring hardware. I could not fix it.
Whenever I play a game/video/load gui/music/scrolling files/browsing web, I get normal frames but every few seconds, the computer will freeze everything except the mouse cursor for 1 second or so, then return to normal, this issue is extremely frustrating as I can not find what problem is causing this. After awhile, I found that something is going on with my GPU, when I run a game or something that requires the GPU to load, the GPU usage will stutter from 99%/100% to 0% for a second, freezing the whole computer. anyone know what is happening? Yea I tried underclocking and overclocking the PC as well even changing resolution, anyone know?

Your HDD with drive C: (containing the OS) is likely responsible for the freezing issue you report. Your challenge will be to convince the ASUS Service Center that there is a problem with the HDD. You'll need to supply them with detailed steps to reproduce the issue.

Alternatively, as I posted earlier, you can follow the steps in the thread I referenced to install the SD26 firmware. Your drive will run somewhat slower, since it will not use the SSD component, but it will run without intermittent freezing.


Apparently, after changing the drivers, Seagate stated that my drivers were SD24, an older version, it actually reduced the stutter to none. Thanks for the help. 😄
