Hello, I've been having this issue for awhile now. When I try to do multiple things at once Windows seems to freeze for minutes at a time.
I am running stock settings on all of my hardware so Im confused to what could be happening.
AMD Phenom ll x6 1090t
Biostar TA880GB+ MOBO
16gb Gskill Ripjaws 1333mhz
2-500gb WD 7200 rpm HD
Nvidia GTX 550 Ti
With 16GB ram, should not be an issue. Could possiblely have something like excessive hardware interrupts. Have task manager 'at the ready' and check the resources running. A utility 'process monitor' sysinternals.com i think, is even better, as it gives much more system info.
