I've been having trouble with my PC for quite a while now, and have been looking for a fix for a long time. When I'm using my computer every so often I will get random lag spikes, that last for around 2-5 seconds. When it happens everything slows down, and the sound sounds like a broken CD/DVD where it goes all choppy.
Recently I was staying at a friends house, where my computer wasn't connected to the internet, and while I was there I didn't have the problem at all, so I think it's something to do with being connected to the internet.
I have checked all my drivers and they are all up to date, and I've tried to minimize my startup programs etc. but I'm still having the same issue.
The only times it happens are:
- When using any web browser
- When downloading something with BitTorent.
My system specs are on my profile.
Thanks, hope you can help!
