Windows 7: Not your normal Freezing/Lag issue on an SSD

Not your normal Freezing/Lag issue on an SSD

Ok, so this isn't your everyday freezing/lag issue. I can game run programs no Problem. This issue I'm experiencing is When I go to type something, weather a Document or just in the browser bar, I can start typing, then I it won't type, but then all of a sudden the stuff I was typing, appears. It's almost as if the hard drive stopped spinning for a split second. The funny thing is I am running a Samsung Evo 1TB SSD drive and not a roundy....The roundy one, just stores my Data and Docs. My SSD has everything else, programs/Games.

I know you can't do a Chkdsk on an SSD...but wondering if anyone else has a similar issue with an SSD.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

svchost is only highest thing on there and chrome, since I have that open...I removed some AMD dual processor program that I installed at some point, why? I haven't a clue since I had an Intel i-7.....that might be the culprit....I'll soon see....So far when I typed this message, it didn't happen....I'll do a restart after I finish running a program I just started...

Make sure you have a perfect install as compiled in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 especially running a Clean Boot, performance AV suggested, and the other tools and methods which have worked best in tens of thousands of installs we've helped with here.

If that doesn't help, work through the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 including the hardware tests. If your files being worked on during hangs are on the HD, test it first.

@Greglocker, Thanks. I'll have to look into Samsung's website to see if they have a diagnostic tool, as I can't run a chkdsk on an SSD drive. worst case scenario, I'll perform a clean install. I don't mind, as I typically do this once or twice a year...

@nooruddin76, Thanks as well. I didn't find anything out of the ordinary. I also notice it's not only whey I type, but when I try to scroll with my mouse too...it's like a system hang of some sort...

EDIT: Sorry, I had a Sr. Moment...I kept saying, I can't perform a chkdsk on an SSD, when in fact, you can...it's a DEFRAG that you can't do on an SSD....Sorry for my stupidity...but I'll run that chkdsk later..then also run the HDD diag tools along with Memtest86. I'm sure all are fine and it's just an OS error than I can easily fix with a repair or a new clean install....I'll post back as soon as I complete these things.

Thanks for your help!!!

Still having an issue, but I called Samsung, he told me that it sounds like an input/output issue with the OS...which makes sense. Aside from possible software conflicts/issues, I'm going to test my memory tonight. If that passes, I'll probably do a clean install....

I'm still open for more suggestions....
