It could be a driver problem. Check your DPC latency: DPC Latency Checker

Hello

First go here: Sager and Clevo Laptop Forums - Sage and Clevo Notebook Computer Discussions
and ask in this thread: http://forum.notebookreview.com/gaming-software-graphics-cards/348249-clevo-d900f-core-i7-nvidia-g280-gpu-new-king.html

or make a new one ..

I have a clevo m860TU with a GTX260M... Problems 2 @ first but it was Nvidia drivers related..

Use this: http://phyxion.net/item/driver-sweeper.html after deleting Nvidia drivers in windows config (remove drivers)

Where do you download the latest drivers for your laptop?
http://www.geforce.com/Drivers/Results/34790

At the moment
VERDE 280.19 BETA DRIVER
is the latest..

Bios updates are a possible solution;

this one: D900F (i presume this one because of the GTX280m.. not the D900F2)
http://www2.sagernotebook.com/pages/notebooks/download.cfm?ProductType=9280
At the bottom you see the bios files.. use at own risk.. But should be easy as it goes with a cd you have to burn.. (and it updates after you reboot it from cd..)

Good luck

well, there you have it. It was really interesting to see a lot of people describing the very same problem i had on the seagate forums. I was having a hard time trying to figure out as to how my problem appeared out of thin air. I mean i am an experienced user and a gamer so its not very likely for me to use the wrong drivers or clicking something i shouldnt have clicked. I keep everything up to date and do defragments, error checks and virus scans periodically.

And as i said before i formatted my rig two times clean. Eventho i didnt have *any* programs installed except for steam, i was having stuttering. so it was obvious it was not app related.

Again, thank you all for your assistance. You've been a great help on finding the error. I'll hang out on the seagate forums for a while and search for a possible fix. I'll post here again if i successfully fix it.

Thanks

looks like there's only one option for you and that's to exchange hard drives and ghost your existing one over to the new one, dunno about where you are but you can pick up a TB hard drive for 40/45, hopefully that will sort any more issues you have with stuttering

1. are the soundcard's codec and drivers up to date..?
2. how have you set the Win7 OS swapfile up..?
3. have you switched the power settings to "high performance"..?
4. is the Windows 7 indexing service running..?

not familiar with Kaspersky, but is it doing a trickle scan in the background
some av's have a "game" setting that disables the trickle scan..(??)

[afterthought] - doubling the amount of RAM might solve the issue..

oh man, did you read *anything* i wrote?

anyways.

Problem solved. Went to where i bought this rig and told them about my problem and they investigated into it. It really was the momentus xt causing all, so they replaced it with another one. Everythin seems normal so far. But its been only 10 hours since i got it back. im still downloading tfc2. i'll post again if anything bad happens. If i dont, just know im busy catching up to what i missed so long. thanx and c u l8r pals

you know whats ironic and might make you anger, is that some game engines lag on certain graphics card gpu, more commonly ati though,< not to diss ati just saying from what i've seen' laptop versions of cards where never nvidias strong point either, could just be a (although unlikely) faulty graphics card, i personally dont recommend laptops or all in one computers (FOR GAMING), because they dont last as long cost twice as much and its hard to narrow down single or multiple part/s problems, from the looks of things you did everything you could sometimes no mattery what u do its just 1 little thing that can't be figured out causing all the problems, well hope you've fixed this issue now, or replaced it, please let me know if you have fixed your issue id love to hear

I'm glad you fixed the issue! Now I guess that I need to go switch my hard drive out (what harddrive did you replace it with, out of curiosity?)
Hope that the new one works out for you!

Does anybody know of a good music player that has a good Equalizer? IMO, the equalizer sucks for WMP 11, realplayer free, and my sound card. I like the PowerAMP app for my android, the equalizer has a sick bass. but it's not available on pc.
