Whenever I try to watch in game cinematics (in any game) there is crazy stutter, pausing, skipping, and lag.

Ever since I installed my Seagate Momentus XT hybrid drive - and yes I have tried upgrading it to the latest firmware to no avail.

Sorry to hear that bud.

Could you please post your laptop model number

Also please answer the following:

Have you updated to the latest drivers for you GPU?

Was this issue present prior to your replacement of the drive?

Have you experienced any other slow downs with your unit? (slow boot, random lock ups, etc)

I figured it out. It's a problem with the drive itself.

I actually finally decided to replace my G50 for similar problems and it looks like it was my hybrid the whole time. lol

Put the 1TB back in and it's fine!
