My PC keeps freezing for 3 seconds - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Welcome to OCN!

Here's another tidbit you might want to look into, since you said you run a secondary drive (fill out your signature rig info by the way, it'll help).

Go into your power options, and make sure you disable turning that secondary hard drive off. I experienced extreme lag, and from what I remember it was about a 3 second freeze, when I would try to access files on the secondary drive that had been cycled off due to inactivity. It's possible something is trying to pull some data off that drive and the lag is from spinning it back up.

Safe mode disables a lot of the bells and whistles, startup programs, and services windows normally uses and puts you into a "barebones" type mode where you can see if it may be a program or service causing your issue.

I second the motion to see if a faulty ram stick is causing this- use process of elimination and install one stick at a time until it shows itself again.

Here are the proccesses

I also tried playing on another hard drive. Same issues again.

Should I smell something if a ram is broken?

Edit:
Running it in safemode it seems that it is no longer freezing cuz it usually froze a few times by now. Is that good news? What should I do?

Is your GPU turned off in safe mode? Cuz the graphics are absolutely horrible now


EDIT2:

I have no idea what happened but it's fixed. After trying in safe mode then back to normal I didnt have any freezes anymore so i guess it is fixed.

The problem came out of nowhere but also went away mysteriously smile.gif

It's normal that the graphics look horrible in safe mode because the Graphics drivers aren't really loaded, their like running the WHQL or generic display drivers while in safe mode, that's why you see the ugly resolution, it's perfectly normal. If the GPU is turned off in safe mode, you wouldn't get any display from your graphics card to your monitor if the display cable is plugged from GPU to Monitor.

Source Disable Dynamic Tick Source
Quote:
I do not recommend you this solution. Use it at your own risk if you have tried everything else, because it is very tricky. Use it only if you are sure that other steps are not helpful for your problem.

The CPU of your PC ticks at a certain rate. Applications and Windows are using these ticks to perform various internal tasks. Even when your PC is idle, CPU continues to tick.

The new power management concept of Windows 8 is about maximum power saving to be energy-efficient on tablets, so it uses dynamic ticking. This new concept involves processor coalescing or batching together ticks when idle, only delivering them when some specific event happens. So, with dynamic ticks the ticking cycle is reduced.

If all your hardware, drivers and apps are configured correctly and your system is malware-free, then try to disable the dynamic ticks to get rid of any hangs you may be experiencing because of this Windows 8.1 feature.

To disable them, open an elevated command prompt and type the following command:

bcdedit /set disabledynamictick yes
Reboot your PC and see if it helps.

To enable them back, use the following command (also type it in an elevated command prompt):

bcdedit /set disabledynamictick no
