How do you describe this? Hang? Freeze?

7205 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  turbonamja
So basically, whenever I start a game or even a Youtube clip, or just any high demanding application (even a 100KB+ picture) my computer seems to lag loading it up. This only occurs momentarily, perhaps 1-2 seconds within opening the application.

Now, when I mean lag, think of it this way: When I play music and this happens, the music lags and kind of "slows down". Also, when I move my mouse, it lags too, looks almost choppy

I hope that was enough for a description, now how do I fix it?

Also, I'm not sure if it's related or not (probably is), after a number of these lags/hangs my computer may end up freezing entirely in which I have to force reset.

Additional Information:

Upon receiving some help from another forum, they told me to update the graphics card, but there seems to be some compatibility issues between GTX 460 and Forceware 266.58 so I am now using default drivers from Windows Update.

Bugcheck 0x116 = Video TDR timeout.

Update your video drivers.

I think I'm just going to live with this god-forsaken problem until NVIDIA fixes their drivers.

This is my 2nd reinstall of the OS and the PC has reproduced the EVENT ID 4101 problem (Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered.)

Updating drivers in my opinion is irrelevant as I get this error when loading Flash-based pages (Youtube, Hulu, etc) or a 5-year old game. There was a several-month period where there was none of the aforementioned symptoms.
Have you run a graphics stress test previously? If it's not a driver issue it's likely to be a hardware one.

Also, make sure your graphics card is not overheating.
Please omit all Event IDs, these were from before I reformatted/reinstalled Windows 7 Professional 64-bit, and have not yet been reproduced.

Please keep in mind that my problem (which includes a sound stuttering? or robotic audio stutter; graphic stuttering) only happens in the beginning of opening an application or in the beginning of a new map of a game.
Give me a few days to produce a video to show you the symptoms.

Things that I recently changed: Changed the paging file to [6000KB - 8000KB] according to some suggestions from various websites such as:
