That happens when there are problems on the disk. After your last post I suspected that anyhow. It may fix your timing problem.

Maybe you want to run an additional chkdsk /F

I just did that right now, it opens commands for half a second and then closes it back up
Nothing really happening after that. Any ideas?

Did you open command prompt in elevated mode (as admin). You have to do that specifically else it won't work. I don't think you are out of date. Most of my systems are a lot older and run perfectly.

Try this: chkdsk C: /F

8 GB of ram with an i5 1500k 3.30 GHz CPU, and a GTX 560 ti GPU. I use my rig mainly for gaming
If you do a lot of gaming i would highly suggest getting at least 12 or 16gb of ram in there as 8gb probably is not gonna cut it especially if you play games that are extremely processor and ram intensive. Those can quickly eat up processor and ram availabiltiy.

This is a lot of motherhood and probably does not help the OP. We don't even know what games the OP is playing. Before suggesting that the OP spend more money, I suggest you ask him for more detailed information and base your recommendations on that.
