View Full Version : G75vw weird 1s regular lag on games

hi everyone,

I've had my G75VW for over a year now, brought a few improvements since then, I now have:

Windows pro 8.1
16GB of RAM memory (8 from original build, 8 added)
SSD 240GB (Kingston SSDNow V300) partitioned 50GB for win8, the rest for main games and softs
HDD 500GB WD Black 7200rpm for data
nVidia Geforce 660GTX 660M (original build) with latest driver (340.52)
Intel i7 3630QM 2.40GHz (original build)

a few months ago I started having this lag problem in games, every 1second or so, the screen freezes for a brief duration. It always happens the same way, on this very regular 1s basis, yeah it's always the same amount of time between two freezes, and the freezes themselves are always the same time. Happens the exacte same way in different games. So I'm pretty sure this is not performance related.

It mysteriously disappeared a few weeks ago, and now it's back.

My best guess ? it must be the SSD drive, since I installed it a few weeks before first seeing this problem, and games on the HDD seems to run fine. I dunno if it's hardware or software issue though. I really don't have a clue about what could be wrong with the SSD.

thanks for reading and if you have any ideas that might help, I'm listening!


edit: wrote wrong SSD name, fixed it
