I have been having this problem for a few weeks now and after trawling through countless posts nothing has seemed to help, so I post my question, here for you all.
While running any kind of program (from graphically intensive games to iTunes to even browsing youtube) I experience small jutters or freezes that last about half a second. Usually in a spurt of anywhere between four and six jutters over a ten second period. They will stop for thirty seconds, then come again.
It's frustrating me to no end. I have recently cleaned all dust from my computer, am an avid computer builder so I am sure all hardware is in place correctly, it's not overheating and nothing has been recently added.
When this issue occurs everything freezes for that half second including sound, creating a a 'blargh' noise. Not sure if that helps, but kind of made me laugh to type it in.
All drivers have been updated to latest versions.
Cheers in advance.
