Once every few minutes I get a sudden peak of DPS latency that causes the system to "freeze" for a fraction of a second (240.000µs = 240ms).
The freeze is not only audio, also video, input devices, everything.
Is there any tool to check what is causing these "system chokes"? As I'm aware it may be caused by some faulty drivers or hardware. The problem started a few months ago.
Some relevant system info:
- It is 5 years old
- I bought a crappy USB keyboard recently because I accidentally melted the last one
- I started to let uTorrent open, and I noticed that the more time uTorrent is open, the more frequent the freezes are
- I started to use Maxivista
- Wired network
- I have 2 different size RAM (I had to buy a new one recently)
