"micro" stuttering in games and just pc

Hey folks, been trying to figure out this problem I've been having recently. Games that USED to run perfectly fine for some reason are giving a fraction of a second of stutter every couple of seconds while moving or turning in game. Went to play Skyrim, Borderlands 2, and a beta which cannot be named and I'm getting it in all of those. Also getting very stuttery gameplay in Marvel Heroes which used to run perfectly fine. Heck, my comp seems to hang when clicking search in a google search.

So far I've tried....

Freeing up space on HDD
Dskchck
Malware scanning
Virus scanning (found both and removed, no change)
Changing Nvidia control panel to performance
Defrag once a week
ALL drivers updated
scanned HDD yet again with multiple free programs

...Crap... I know I did a lot more these past few days but I'm blanking..

Anywho.. I'm just not sure why I'm getting these stutters in game and hang ups out of game. Have 6gb of ram and I was never bothered by any of this before. Comp always ran pretty well.

Oh one more thing, for as long as I can rememebr my computer has been saying the cpu is overheating at 97C but I don't think it's right. I can have my comp off for days and then when I turn it on, it'll say that at boot. The same exact temperature no matter what. Think a sensor is faulty or something. Either way it's irrelevant as it was saying this when everything was running fine as well.

Really desperate for help here. I've looked at other stuttering threads here but I feel mine's different because it's games I've played before that have worked fine that are running poorly now.

I'll gladly try any tips or suggestions you guys can give. Will be here all night! ^_^

A bad CPU sensor can be a problem if it is causing thermal throttling

Do you mean becuase of the false heat temp? The reason I don't think it's that is because it was saying that for over a year with no real issues, especially not this stuttering. This was in the last month or two.

That is true.
Personally I have been having some stuttering problems as well.
It affects youtube and games. It still occurs on the onboard GPU so I am fairly sure it is a software problem.

In this case a spare hard drive that you can install a fresh OS is useful

What do your CPU and GPU usage graphs look like?

You can snapshot with alt+printscreen, paste them in paint and upload them to a hosting service

Task manager provides CPU usage graphs and MSI afterburner will provide GPU usage graphs

Still no GPU graph but I noticed two things right off the bat.

Firstly the usage is oscillating distinctly which could be related
Secondly your CPU is only at half frequency. This could be due to the faulty sensor or perhaps speedstep throttling

Is there a software fix to either of those?

If you are certain your CPU isn't really overheating, then go into the BIOS and turn off speedstep and if there is an option
thermal throttling and see if it helps.

Now what if I'm like 70% certain it's not overheating?.. :)  .. .I'm not really sure how to physically check. I know it DOES say that even if the computer has been off for a long time, so I'm not sure how it could instantly be at that temperature.

Also, it's the SAME EXACT temp every time I see it. 97C, without fail. If it were a real reading, wouldn't it fluctuate even a little bit?

Yeah it would be almost impossible for it to be exactly that temp.
Go ahead and disable TT if you can

Update!

So, I updated my BIOS and now it's saying 87C instead of 97C all the time. I also installed an SSD drive and installed Skyrim on that. Still have the skipping though.

New question. If my OS is on the original HDD, could it still cause the skipping even though my game is installed on my 2nd drive? Since I'm playing the game through Windows?

Haven't attempted the speed step and throttling yet. Wanted to see if it was my HDD first. Will try it next after I hear back from you or anyone else. :p

Also, worst case scenario. If my CPU IS overheating, could turning off thermal throttling and speed step roast it? Or will it shut down or something along those lines to prevent damage?

I tend to doubt it.
Usually once those components finish loading it shouldn't effect it

Its hard to say for sure, but there is some risk

-edit-
I just scrolled through the thread and just noticed I don't think you posted your specs

Should I post more out of the DXdiag? Wanted to make sure it was exact.


At the very end of the DXDiag, I noticed this..

EVR Power Information

Decode Power Usage: 50
PowerFlags: 1424

Not sure if it helps

As far as I can tell that is normal stuff.
So its a 2500K and GTX460

Did you ever check that your GPU temp was okay.


Stuttering problems are actually one of the hardest to diagnose. What type of network connection are you using?

I'm using cable, and get a pretty good DL speed and what not. Plus the games I'm playing are mostly SP. Never had a problem with latency in games really.

As for the GPU, the temp seems average according to MSI Afterburner.

I just can't figure this out. I've noticed it seems to microstutter when new assets load in games like in a distance, but besides that runs perfectly fine. My friend said maybe a ram problem but I have 6gb and it always used to be ok before now.

Yay.. Now I can't even boot my computer. Shows a blinking white line in the top left hand corner on a black screen. Can't get into bios either. Most of the time it doesn't even show the option and when it does it freezes when I try and then eventually goes to the black screen again.

Sounds like something died.

Try taking the GPU out and plugging the monitor into the motherboard.

Also try resetting the CMOS
