my mates got a new build and in game is fine for a while but eventually stutters even when exiting out of the game it will carry on for about 2-3 minutes when on the home screen any help much appreciated.
Sounds like something is overheating. Since you've got a MSI mobo, it could be the VRMs. If you've overclocked it, back off to stock. Make sure you have good airflow through your case, e.g. front to back. Since the internet shuts off, it might be the chipset getting toasty.
I tried to play Crisis 1 on it earlier and it did the whole stuttering thing. I uninstalled the HMDI high def audio device and that just turnt off my audio lol so i reinstalled it.
The Motherboard isn't overclocked, I just left it as it was, the airflow seems good enough, have plenty of fans. Wondering if it is actually the motherboard as it was just a cheap £60 one tbh.
should have tried it without the sound. I think it's a driver issue. Uninstall the amd drivers....... ( you should still have off the driver updates and auto windows update ).... reboot. install your drivers. but this time do an advanced install. when it asks to install the HD HDMI driver......... deselect so it won't. continue loading the graphics driver. test games.
