My son has a new gamer laptop and similar issue. Yesterday Nvidia released a new driver and now what he saw is gone.
But I can't say this applies. Any reason I can't find the PC make and model?
I have a problem when I try to launch some of my games: some of them are stuttering, they freeze for about 0.5 sec (sound stops as well). I have tried different compatibility modes, uninstalled all my drivers and reinstalled the latest, scanned it with MSE and cleaned it with CCleaner and ZHP Cleaner but the problem is still there.
It is really weird because the problem occurs randomly : some of my games never experience the problem, and for the other ones, sometimes everything will be fine, but when I reboot it, it starts to stutter again. And apparently it is not due to the limitation of my computer, because I have recent games (like Dead Space or Borderland) which are perfectly fine, and I have "old" games (like Dark Reign 2 or Baldur's Gate) that are causing issues (well, I also have recent games which stutters and old one that don't, so I can't find the logic).
Do you have any idea about what is going on?
