Windows 7: Computer Stutters While Playing/Streaming Video or Gaming

Computer Stutters While Playing/Streaming Video or Gaming

Specs:
CPU: Intel i7 2600k @3.4
GPU: Asus ENGTX 570
RAM: 8 Gb Corsair Vengeance
Mobo: Asus P8p67 Deluxe


Description:
The computer freezes completely and any audio being played stutters. This lasts only for about a second or two and then the computer resumes normal function. This only happens 1 time every few minutes and more frequently while gaming, so Im assuming its a graphics card issue.

I have noticed this problem happening while streaming videos on Netflix, and while playing games. Originally I thought it was a hard drive problem because I have heard the Marvell SATA controller has had issues. But that isnt the problem.

All of my drivers are up to date and there hasnt been a BSOD or any error message. I also updated the BIOS to the latest version.

Try this:

Go to Start and type in "Event Viewer" (without the quotations).
Expand the Custom Views Tab and select "Administrative Events".
Find any errors related to your display and post them back.

I didnt find anything that said anything about the display, but I did find this:

"The shadow copies of volume C: were aborted because the shadow copy storage could not grow due to a user imposed limit."

Yes but it usually only stutters once. As opposed to start, stop, start, stop. I will be playing, it then stutters, and goes away for a few minutes.

This particular problem was down to games for windows live client requesting network access every two minute intervals, and like clockwork, it stuttered every two minutes exactly, have you checked your firewall to see if anything is blocked?

There doesnt seem to be anything blocked. But the stuttering also happens randomly, it isnt a regularly timed thing.

Do any of these look like an issue?

I've had similar problem as you describe. In the end it was lack of motherboard drivers for some component. I think it was the raid drivers or something that seriously hurt the functions of the HDD on that system. I suggest you go to MB manufactures site and actually install their drivers even if Windows 7 device manager is not showing any problems because sometimes it just doesnt detect it.
