Windows 7: Computer lags every couple seconds

Computer lags every couple seconds

Hi. I am running Windows 7 x64 and I have a problem where the computer lags every few seconds. For example, while I am typing this message, every couple words, the line cursor freezes, and then after a second, everything I type appears on screen.

Another example would be switching tabs in Firefox, clicking a tab, it would take a few seconds to switch. Going to a different program would have the same effect.

I ran MemTest for about 14 hours or so and passed. I have 8GB of RAM.

Does anyone know why this is happening?

You would be better off if you had your system specs filled out. This would be a good start.

I would check running processes. See if something is taking all your CPU resources.

Hi and welcome

We could use two things from you.

first a screen shot of task manager with the process tab showing, all users checked, and "memory" tab on top clicked so the highest memory processes are on top see pic.

Second

Type eventvwr in search. go to the windows log>application tab. Look for errors (they have red in the left hand column) that have app hang, or app crash, or the name of one of the apps that seem to freeze. There is alot of data so you might want to wait untill just after it happens. when y ou find them mak a screen shot and upload it using the attachement icon in the reply form

Use the snipping tool built in to win 7 for the screen shot, and the attachment icon to attach them see pics for all three

I agree with Ken, the event viewer may show a problem although it may not be conclusive.

For intermittent freezing I would test the harddrive first.

The Op needs to post all system information for a more complete analyasis.
