All the items above are new except for the harddrive (3years old)
Sometimes I get these VERY weird "smooth"-"Freze" lags.
My internet connection would all stop working.
I cannot open programs.
It's as if everything is frozen in my computer; EXCEPT for the fact that I can move the mouse and still scroll up and down my internet browser as if I wasn't lagging.
The only thing is nothing new will open.
Durign this lag, say I open 5+ programs. None of those programs will open until AFTER the lag period has ended. Then all the 5 programs will open at once and my internet is back and working.
mmm...Are you able to open task manger when this happens, how are proccessor and RAM looking? Is it specific programs that cause this or random ones? are they graphic intensive? I would update BIOS and if it's still happening then try your memory one stick at a time and/or run memtest over night to rule them out.
Also check processor temps as I get a similar problem if I accidentally tell excel to paste a formula a million times (things get very hot and slow if I dont kill the program).
