Computer freezing for a couple of seconds -please help-

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
My computer keeps freezing randomly like the audio just loops really fast and then returns to normal. And it does it when I'm watching youtube videos and playing games.

CPU is LinX and p95 stable. Could it be that i'm using new drivers or an unstable gpu oc? Please help

I'm using 285.38 nvidia drivers.

i'd try to re-install your gpu drivers... and use driver sweeper...

also if you are gpu overclocking ..maybe throttle it back for a while and see keeps occurring...

When did the freezing start? Did it start after you OC'd your GPU, or did it start after you installed the latest drivers, etc.

Could be a virus. I had a virus named the 'Welchia' worm or something before and it did exactly what you say your PC is doing.

I'll use drivers sweeper and clean off the drivers.

Should I reinstall the drivers that i've used before that have always worked? I am only using these to play the BF3 beta

is your cpu usage going to 100% when it freezes?

if so its most likely an IRQ error... something is using the same IRQ as an another device which causes the system to hang for a few seconds.

Finding out the component takes time since you have to narrow it down to just one.

Not that I know. When It freezes I can't pull up task manager.

Ok so scanned my computer and it picked up nothing.

Should I downgrade my drivers back down to 266.58? Those are golden drivers for me.
