Hey all, I recently bought a pre built gateway gaming computer, and well, I didn't get any random frame skip until recently, I tried many system restore points, uninstalled new software etc, updated drivers as well.
My specs are:
Radeon 6750 1gb card
I7-2600 3.4 ghz
8 gb of ram
Windows 7 64 bit home premium
My video card normally runs about 70-74 c when gaming, so I don't know if the stuttering is a heat issue or what, I was hoping you guys could help me, basically the games all run fine, then you see that skip for like a half a second then it goes back to normal, then about 3-5 minutes later it does it again, any ideas? Thanks.
Btw, the games I'm playing are WoW, Skyrim, Just Cause 2, Saints Row: The Third, even older games like Company of Heroes stutters too.
Have you taken your card out and reseated it and your ram? Check to make sure all cables are tight. So how are you checking your temps FPS etc? This problem happens just like you said every 3-5 minutes on all your games?
Also How old is your rig? What is the PSU's brand and how many watts is it? Also what is your MOBO? You have a nice setup as it looks so far. Please repost and we will see if we are able to help.

Hey thanks for the reply, my power supply is a 500 W FSP Group inc PSU, model number: FSP450-60EP, and the motherboard is an Acer, I got the pc about 2 months ago, here's a link to it if it helps:
But yeah, it started not long ago, the frame skip that is, it really got noticeable when I was playing Dead Island, the card would goto 78 degrees C, and I heard that the game is poorly optimized and alot of cards run hot, I just hope it didn't ruin my card.
On another note, I just finished blowing out the dust and stuff, so I'll post later if the frame skip continues, thanks again.
Well after cleaning out the dust I'm still getting the frame skip issues, I really have no clue what it could be, because like I said, it just started happening a couple weeks ago, virus scans come up clean etc, I know the psu is pretty terrible, but like I said, this just started happening recently
Edit: my temps are still at 68-70c even after cleaning it out, and I was just playing WoW, these temps normal for my card you think? Thanks again
Before this started to happen, did you up date anything? Is there another card you could try in your rig or can you try your card in someone's rig? How many PCIe x 16 slots do you have in your rig? 1 or 2?
Have you done Mem test on your ram? I am going to link you to some programs. One is MSI Afterburner. It is like Speedfan but MSI Afterburner has a furmark testing to put stress test on your card.
If you have any questions please re post them. The last link has 3 or 4 different down loads. I guess just pick and choose or do what ever. If you have all this please disreguard and we will move to plan C.
I am not that good with AMD but after reading some other threads. Do you have something in the CCC that is called Uber? Like I said I don't know much about AMD and the CCC's.
It seems the Uber or what ever it is called that If disabling it helps fix a lot of problems. But again I don't know. Eveything turns out to be fine with your rig. The only other thing is to roll back your drivers to an older one to see if that helps.
Did you do the furmark and put your GPU under stress to see if that brings out the problem? If it does there then we can say it is the card. Unless you can try your card in another system. I don't think it is a softwear problem. Try that and let me know.

Hmm, well I messed with some stuff in CCC, and the skip seems to have stopped, I found the uber thing too, and tweaked that and now everything seems to be fine, thanks for that, and thanks for all the help glad everything is working good again.
best to run the ccc panels 3d settings at default unless you run game profiles... this will avoid setting the wrong sampling and the likes causing performance hits.
by all means use amd overdrive just make sure the 3d settings are default...
above is referring to uber sampling which is a setting on witcher 2, i guess he means adaptive or super sampling. both of these AA modes have a heavy hit on performance and should be left at default (adaptive multisample.) you may have gotten the name wrong but its still a good call DM...
