For some reason, when I'm gaming, I'm getting alot of stuttering, in a way where the game's time is speeding up and slowing down constantly...FPS stays constant, though. I've looked up and tried a couple of fixes, such as setting CPU affinities to only use one core out of the two I have. All other fixes I can't try, because most of them are for AMD CPUs...
intel pentium dual core e5200 2.5ghz
sapphire radeon hd 3850
2 sataII hdd, 1 ide hdd, and 1 disk drive
when you post problems you need to list ALL the components and the OS, it really does help, if you are running Vista or Win7 there is a easy fix that usually helps, if you got XP well it could be a lot of things
Sorry, I just forgot what to list, I don't usually do this...Vista 64-bit, the graphics card is on AGP, with 512MB, running vista on the 80GB seagate barracuda hdd sataII
CPU cooler is aftermarket, thermaltake's duorb
GPU cooler is stock
e5200 @2.5ghz 1.264V - 1.280V socket 775
it may just be that you are running with old equiptment... I know when my stuff used to get really dusty (before i cared about it) it would cause audio issues like that! I would just take canned air to it.. although it sounds to me like something is just on the brink of taking a dump.. maybe your mobo im not sure...
Yeah, I guess I'll take that into account...oldest equipment would actually be the ram, psu, and hard drives...does the age of the equipment cause failures in test for spinrite and memtest? I already ran spinrite, no errors, and I'm running memtest right now.
