So this issue started when I set up a second monitor. Basically on starting up most games and some apps such as ts3 the computer will freeze. it goes totally unresponsive and my g15 screen freezes as well. What is really odd is that going by the g15 clock the freezes only happen in multiples of 15 seconds so some games freeze me for 15 seconds, some 1 minute, and bad company 2 or medal of honor will freeze for minutes. Once I get games beside frostbite based ones going they play fine but many seem to have performance decreases. If I alt tab, open steam overlay, or close a game it will freeze for the same time as it did at start up. Frostbite games are a total mess and freeze when i change menus or respawn. I have run a memtest and checked my hard drives but games on both of them have the same issue. I've checked for registry issues but also found nothing serious. I'm not really sure how to check my gpu or cpu since both of them technically work fine once a game starts.
