This is likely from some kind of CPU throttling, either in the motherboard bios or software that runs in Windows.

I couldn't look at your file because I have no idea what a .dem is.

let me explain why, the stuttering that i had before is gone... there is a new type. its almost like a lag type thing and i cant explain it in detail. if you guys will be kind to put me threw the instructions of doing what you wanted me to doing for further testing im READY.

for some reason now i think it might have to do something with my sound it now crackles from time to time, i have a tf2 demo if you guys want me to upload to kinda show you what its doing.

I also get these quick freezes in the new codmw2 so i dont think its only valve games anymore.

there is a demo you can see some parts where i kinda get stuck for a split second.
hmm, I'm beginning to suspect the hard drive is defective.

If it has bad quality sectors the drive will have to re-read it several times.

they are probably not bad enough to be marked as bad (yet).

I would suggest you clone your system to another harddisk and see what that brings.
One can never have enough hard disk space, so it's not like you will be buying a disk for only this test.

greetings.

i dont get it thought, i went from caviar green which was causing most of my games to stuter to this 1, is my luck really that bad???


just a quick suggestion on my part idk if it makes any sense but... since i have my caviar green internal and also my caviar black internal, you think the green has something to do with it???


and the .dem if you have tf2 you stuff it in your tf2 folder and watch it threw tf2.


Im just scared that if i get another drive and it still continues idk what i will do.
Is there anything else i can possibly do?

oo i also failed to mention, while i was watching a show and installing something it had made my sound stutter on my tv show. so idk if its just the way some stuff is being optimized...

If he's getting that larg of hard drives he should also always have a smaller partition for OS/System files because of problems like this as well. Even if their isn't fragmentation if he installs a game after the hdd is 30% filled then that will be putting files in both the slowest and almost farthest away from system files. Smartfan will tell you if the hdd is failing and it'll tell you very well on all SMART enabled HDD's. I love the damn thing.

I'm having similar stuttering issues with COD4 as well... When I run the game, i get 150+ fps but then every 5-10 seconds the game seems like it freezes for a quarter-half a second... This doesn't happen all the time though. Sometimes, the game will run fine for the whole night, but then the next day it will stutter again..

I've tried lowering the settings, turning on/off AA and nothing seems to work. Last night I tested out MW2 and that didn't have any issues. Going to monitor it for a little more.

In the meantime, I'm re-installing COD4 and hoping that will fix the issue.

yea i get that same issue, im not to worried about that just because its running off other peoples connection, it doesnt always happen to me as well the last couple games i played it was ok.

its just in tf2 if you watch that demo you see how it freezes just a bit.

No, there's enough RAM as it is. The vast majority of games don't use any more than 2GB by themselves as it is.
