Stuttering Everywhere [Videos, Browsers, Games] - Page 3

post #21 of 152
Advance Clock Calibration - was/is used to help poor performing cores. Only applicable on Phenom I chips, but was also used to unlock locked cores on Phenom II chips.

If all four cores are doing it I suggest trying to replace the motherboard if all other troubleshooting has failed. If you previously overclocked that chip and took it too far, you may have damaged the chip. The original Phenoms were very finicky overclockers, usually resulting in poor overclocks and high temperatures. So if replacing the motherboard doesn't resolve the issue after all else - you'd have to try a different CPU and see if the problem persists.

I know that some people report (and I have personally experienced) bad stuttering when certain polling programs are running (like EVGA Precision). That affected a lot of various Nvidia cards for some people and perhaps something similar is happening with your ATI card.

launch gpu-z , watch if clocks stay up when game is launched

with bad drivers clocks may go up & down at gaming = probably this is what you experience

Oh... That kinda makes sense

Well, I did OC it before, but never raised the voltages.

Is there a way to check my CPU's health safely?

If it matters, my usual idle temps for my CPU is 45-50% C and at loads high 65-70+% C.

Also, I just recently learned how to enable GPU hardware acceleration in Chrome and FireFox 4 Beta. The stuttering in browser (scrolling, instant typing in boxes) is around 85% gone!

The video stuttering is somewhat reduced but is still prominent.

I am thinking that before I enabled GPU acceleration, the work was all for the CPUs and it couldn't handle it smoothly!


So is the CPU likely the culprit? Or is it not getting enough juice?

max temps i 64c

clock it down some, or get a better cooler for it
amd says vcore = 1.05-1.3

The Phenom chips are pretty cheap these days. I say buy a cheap replacement (new or used) and swap it out. See if it solves things.

To see if your CPU is fine, you can try some Prime95/LinX. But - if your temps are already high or going too high, that is quite possibly the culprit. Perhaps it is throttling itself from overheating.

Hmm if I do clock it down, should I lower down the voltages as well? Or it's completely safe to clock it down w/o lowering the voltage?

In AMD OverDrive, mine says 1.05 to 1.3 as well.

Tonight the idle is 36 C Hmm

Well, IDK. If it's throttling, then why does the CPU % Usage spike up? Wouldn't that be the opposite of "throttling" you were talking about?

Its your hardrive failing, my girl has the same problem on her laptop, and I did a hardrive check and she has tones of bad sectors.

It will be replaced soon or she can get it warranty on it and get replaced with another ****ty hitach crap.

Her laptop is a year old so when I seen like 10+ red bad sectors, 50+ blue and etc I knew it was bad ****, it means your hardrive can crash anytime now.

I just couldn't handle it watching video = studder, when you have google open and typing a word pauses then finishes it off I was like *** is this crap, I then try to watch a movie well gl on that crap, and just anything you do just drives me nuts, I told her I will check it out and see *** the problem was. I already knew no spyware figure it could have been man porn but she doesn't watch it lol, then I was like ok well malware avg and I always delete cookies so I was like ***, did a hardrive scane and well **** its the harddrive, was hard enough to do a defrag lol and etc.

Advice, get a new harddrive, and get a western digitial, or ssd with good write and read speeds.

I don't have an NV board though but here's a little update if it might help solve the problem:

Under the BIOS I found these:

"Main"> Advanced BIOS Features> Chipset Features:

HPET [Enabled]
PCI_EX1 Gen2 High Speed Mode [Disabled]
PCI_EX3 Gen2 High Speed Mode [Disabled]
PCI_EX4 Gen2 High Speed Mode [Disabled]
PCI_EX5 Gen2 High Speed Mode [Disabled]

I looked up the Motherboard Manual and it said:

>Port #02/03/11/12 High Speed Mode

These items are used to define the PCIE 2.0 or PCIE 1.0 mode for PCIE x16 slots. Select "Disabled", all the PCIE x16 slots are compatible with PCIE 1.0.


(I have 4x PCI E x16 slots in my Mobo and maybe the 1,3,4,5 are it's name?)

(my 5870 is in slot 1)

I have the following options other than [Disabled] (w/c is its current state):

Auto
Software Initiated
Advertised RC

I have no Idea what the last two meant?

Any suggestions please?

+rep for a response. How may I check the status of my drives for free? And if possible a spyware free and reliable program please?

Thanks in advance!

BTW, how sure are you it's the HDD? Mine doesn't really crash or anything. I can watch movies just fine.. probably because it's usually just 24 fps that I don't notice stutters in them.

Let me know if the replacement drive really fixes your daughters pc.

I have the program on my girls laptop, I can post it tomorrow for you.

its late here and im about to crash, but it is defenetly your harddrive.

It just sounds like it to much, I also thought it was the video card or spyware but once everything was checked, it was the harddrive once I scaned it.

If you want to just grab a new harddrive if you don't mind buying a new one.

If not then I can post you the program thats free that checks it.


Also why not try and do a scan on your harddrive and if it stops you know its the problem, I tried that on my girls and it stoped I was like **** knew it was the harddrive before I even did a HD check.

Then I tried ot defrag, well lol it was a pita, but finally did finish it all had to try so many times.

Once I scaned the harddrive with the program to see if i got any bad sectors well yep I think she had over 100+ bad sectors on that drive consiting of major to low end ones.

Sorry to tell you man its your harddrive.

I was upstairs watching a show and told her why not get off that **** laptop till its fixed and go play on my system down stairs and see the diff, well it was so muc hbetter she said lol.

Yea I just can't handle her laptop when im lazy and want ot scan something upstairs instead of booting up my main system and checking something online, but its just horid
