Im having and issue and while I am quiet good with computers it is beyond my skills to fix. I play World of Warcraft which is where I mainly see this issue however I see it in other games as well as just regular usage. My system when playing games will drop to 3-4 FPS stuttering for about 10-30 seconds then for no reason go right back to 50-60 fps. I have tried running adware and spyware stuff, anti-viruses, CCleaner, Defrag, deleting and reinstalling drivers, updating everything, cleaing out the HDD there is 100gig free space, and yet after all this it still does it with no answers I turned here.
CPU - AMD Athlon 64 x2 Dual Core Processor 4400+
Video - 9500 GT nvidia
RAM - 4 Gigs of ddr2 ram
OS - Vista Home
If you need any more information that i might of left out please let me know and thank you in advance for your assistance in the matter.
Ill give that a shot and tell you what happens but i dont believe it will chage much at all could be wrong but been running with aero since day one with this system and this is the 1st issues i have gotten in 2 years. But like i said ill give it a shot and let you know!
Also idk if this is possible but is there a way to test the video card and ram and things to make sure they are working properly. also I dont know if this is important but I use a logitech G13 G15 and G5 dont know if those will do anything about it
I found a possible cause to the issue, however at the moment I dont have the time to test it so just let me know if this fits. After running DXdiag it says I only have 3 out of the 4 gigs of usable ram .... So using reasoning one of the four sticks of ram is bad and when its attempting to use that stick its causing the system stutters.
And I use the FPS to explain the issue but i think its a system lag not a graphics issue. Watching movies works never have issue its when im playing games and putting a strain on the system thats getting it. Everything I have is updated some things reinstalled ... should I try a fresh install of the OS?
As much as I hate the process ill get that done today and let you know if that fixes the issue

pls say if you found a solution- i have a nvid 250 as well - my finest xample is the game " SACRED 2" - as it can really fiddle with alotta colours & the new nvid " phys x" thingie- im xperiensing some stuttering during the startup of game... like a little crunching sound at high peaks- then when i move around in the game i can folly around for approx 10 sexs... then its like theres a huuuuge lag- sound stutters and graphic is moving matrix slow mo style... for 3 seconds... then it retuns to full speed again.... yet another 10 sec passes by same crap again ... crunchy crunchy stutter stutter for 3 secs. and same thing for me- updated Bios/drivers for graph card- updated chipset drivers - updated sound card drivers ... so im also fresh outta ideas - and ive been gaggin on this problem for almost a year now.
