This was my first time building computer, and it hiccups from the moment it starts to breathing. i updated the most of drivers and it still does the same. It hiccups like on very simple task like whenever its bringing me to new page on webs, (such as clicking on link, hit search button) and of course during gaming sessions.

I heard whenver the newly built computer hiccups its due to the embedded soundcard on motherboard, and if you think that's the cause too, how do i deactivate it? and if i do so, do i need to buy a new soundcard?

Here is my spec.

Thank you.

Boot into safe mode, or safe mode with networking. Any issues there?

What BIOS version are you on? There's been several updates for that board.

no, i havent updated the BIOS, so i just visited the link you provided for me, and it gave me .ROM file.

How do i use this file and do update?
meantime someone answers for this, I will try the safe mode. Thank you

You'll need to boot into the BIOS (usually done by tapping the delete key repeatedly on startup). Then follow this guide to use the EZ Flash2 program.

Try playing around in safe mode first. It's a less drastic step, than flashing a BIOS.

Go to the device manager, right click on your video card, and uninstall it.

Then download and install catalyst control center 10.9 from here.

i unistalled the video card also unistalled the control center i had.

then i downloaded the control center and it says it cant find the ATI driver. should i download and install the display driver as well?

The driver is part of the CCC package. It should install the driver during the install.

What version of CCC did you have before?

I can't see the image right now. I'm at work and that site is blocked. I can check it out when I get home in a few hours.

My fault....I mis-spoke.

Yes, either install the display driver, or install the full suite.

If the stuttering continues, try removing it, and going back to v10.8.
