as of a couple of weeks ago my computer frequently decides to just freeze for three seconds. It can happy from anywhere between once every ten minutes, to three or four times a minute.
I recently reformatted and the problem wasn't solved. I just dedicated 760mb of a flash drive to ReadyBoost (it was a small, small usb >.<) and to my surprise, it actually made a bit of a difference.
The freezing was still apparent though, and gets disruptive when I game.
I know it's not a problem of the game being too demanding for my computer, as it's not a high-specs game and I was always playing it before a couple weeks ago with no problem.
Intel T6600 dual core 2.2ghz
4gb DDR3 ram
512mb GeForce 210m (dx11)
Does anyone know of any possible solutions? This has been a serious annoyance over the past few weeks and I could seriously do without it D:
Thanks in advance.

I apologise for the bump. From the time of my original post here until just yesterday, I still suffered from the problem of constant stuttering/freezing.. This mainly occurred in Source games, for whatever reason, and other games, such as Battlefield: Bad Company 2, ran perfectly fine.
Yesterday I decided to try and find more information from people suffering the same problem and realised that the most likely problem was my HDD. So I opened up SpeedFan and ran an extended S.M.A.R.T. test, and wanted to see what that could show.. When I set that to run, however, and booted up Half Life 2: Deathmatch, everything ran incredibly smoothly. Not a hitch at all. When the test was aborted: BOOM, out came the stuttering again.
It's one of the oddest workarounds/'solutions' I've seen for this sort of problem, and I'm afraid my grasp of hardware does not cover how this works - some of you might have more of an idea. Either way, it works, and for that I am incredibly happy.
Just posting here for future reference.. you never know if someone might have the same problem as me. ;s
Thanks a lot for your suggestions guys. Though they didn't solve my problem, they did teach me some more about the troubleshooting process, so I'll try to stick to that next time. :P Once again, sorry for necro-ing a mega old thread.
