Really annoying cpu problem

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I've made a few threads about this but now I know that it's the CPU. Well I'm not 100% sure but I am nearly certain.

Basically, a week ago I started to get a problem where I would get stuttering in my games. Music was also skipping a bit, people may say it's multitasking but before the problem started I wasn't getting this.

I tried using intergrated GPU and it was still exactly the same. I had latest DirectX...

I reinstalled Windows, it didn't help.

I installed some CPU stuff like latest driver, dual core optimizer. I ran Orthos for 14 hours on stock settings (I'm using stock now), and it was 100% stable.

Also ran memtest on both sticks and 0 errors. I tried with each stick of RAM and was the same.

I am thinking it's because I tried pushing my CPU overclock to the limits, although the problem didn't happen right after an overclocking session.

I cannot RMA, warrenty is void because I have an aftermarket cooler, I don't know anyone with a am2/am2+ CPU who would lend it to me.

The only thing I can think of is ask the guy were I got my parts and were I got my computer built. Sure it may cost me a bit but maybe he will be able to do something like put another CPU on my board.

PLEASE HELP

I don't think that's your CPU, if it were faulting that much, it would certainly not pass a small FFT stress test I would think. I would actually be a bit suspicious of the hard drive, perhaps its just not fast enough to feed info smoothly to the ram/processor.

You could also try going back to a stock clock and voltage on the processor for testing.

You didn't by chance have an ATI card before the nvidia card did you? My old AMD machine started skipping when I "upgraded" from an ATI to an Nvidia card. Seems something was wonky with the drivers.


good luck!

Thanks man. My cpu is @ stock until I get this problem fixed.

I don't think I had an ATI card. I got my motherboard (intergrated card) the same time as I got my 9600 GT. I wasn't the one building it so I'm not sure. Although when I did try doing stuff on my intergrated the drivers weren't installed I think.

I also formatted yesterday so my drivers were gone.

My friend is saying that cpu's almost never go defective and that it's my motherboard or my HDD with my OS on it.

I am running a error test with HD tune on the HDD I have with Windows.

Yeah I know it's really frustrating. :swearing:

Does anyone know how I can fix this? If I can't fix it before Monday I will go to the tech store where I got my pc built.

best thing is to run a series of tests.

- Stress Test the CPU

-Memtest86+ to check the ram

-S.M.A.R.T Analysis of the HDD

if any one of those throws any errors or warnings, then you have found your problems.

download Speedfan, for the SMART test report, it has a plugin that diagnoses the HDD for you.

Thanks

Ok tried SMART and everything is okay. The spin up time of my 2nd HDD (the one without the OS) is normal but that's fine I think, I tried games on my other HDD and it didn't help.

then I dont know what to tell you then man. You are just going to have go through a trial and error process now.

for example using one set of ram and then another, or using one PSU and then another PSU, ect ect, until you find out what the problem is. If that doesnt help well then it just has to be a software issue.
