Hi everyone, In the last week or so whenever I play any game I get low fps/rapid freezing every 2 seconds. This happens constantly no matter what is on screen every 2 seconds for about a 1/4 of a second/250ms each time. It is really annoying especially on FEAR and Counterstrike because it mucks up aiming. Does anyone know what could be causing these constant pauses/mini slow downs? I've tried 3 different graphics drivers for my 6800gt and none solve the problem, this includes the latest driver from nvidias site too. So i guess its not a graphics driver issue. It's also not my virus scanner either as i disabled it and still get the problem. I have also defragged today and still the problem remains. Is it a hardware issue do you think? If so what? Everything was fine until very recently. Any suggestions welcome!
