Weird Freezing.

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hello guys! so first of all, I have no idea to which forum this thread belongs to so I'm posting it here.(sorry if it's in the wrong place)
My problem is, simple, I'm just doing some stuff on my PC like browsing the web, watching videos and just doing regular stuff on the PC, then suddenly my PC freezing for a couple of seconds... like a lag or something, no clue how to call this, really... so it's freezing for a couple of seconds and then it comes back, but after this happens I have to restart my PC because, if this happens I have issues watching YT videos on fullscreen, it takes like 3 seconds to go to fullscreen. Also when this happens(my main problem) The performance of my games are very poor after this occurs, I mean real low FPS until I restart my PC. and yes, in every single game, even simple games like Warsow and CoD4.
I'm having this problem for quite a while now, this is really an annoying one. Thanks in advanced and I hope my English wasn't too bad.

GTX 460
i5 3450
4GB RAM
CORSAIR CX500
Never overclocked anything.
I have re-installed my OS like a month ago and installed the latest drivers of course and still the same problem.
I can't really tell since when it's started... like a couple of months ago

Could you try and change the psu to any other brand that you have and then see if the issue persists. Also, do you also have a spare VGA card or a system in which you could try them individually, as that PSU is good for a budget build, but is usually not recommended by some of the experts on this site

Can't do non of those things that you suggested.

Well, you could try to reset your motherboard bios. If that does not help, you could take iut back to the shop from whence you bought it. May be they would be able to fix it

I'll consider this thanks.
Any other suggestion from other people ? I just need more answers from different people so I can decide like that to what actually do.

Is most likely your drivers and the video card ,... is a well known issue with the 400 series, as well as the 500 series.

Roll back to 314.22 nvidia drivers and see if the problem persists ... thumb.gif

How can I get an older driver version ? and if it actually helps so what I should just stay with an old outdated driver ?
and I forgot to mention, it is most probably is the GPU because sometimes when this lag occurs my driver stop responding for a second and they just change my windows theme to the classic version.
I probably will change my GPU in like two months if the prices will drop over here (I want the GTX 760, can my PSU hold it ?) and my motherboard is P8H61-M LE.

If you plan on upgrading, i'd suggest swapping out the PSU for a decent 650 watt like this one. Also, for your current problem, i'd suggest rolling back to a older driver (314.22 if i remember was a stable driver) and then try again
