Well, in the last month or two I've been getting random lockups and framerate issues in game. To elaborate: I'll be playing a game just fine with a very nice framerate, and all of a sudden it will either completely lock up for 5-60 seconds, have a framerate of 1-10 for 5-60 seconds, or both, one after the other. I've tried uninstalling a whole heap of crap, running virus scans, running virus scans etc, nothing helped. I decided to check out how badly fragmented my HDD was, and noticed it was VERY bad (See here
). I thought "Yes, this is my problem!", and promptly defragged. (See here
) As you can see, the defrag was rather successful, and according to O&O, 10-20% fragmented is fine. I was stoked, so I went back into a game and still had the same issue!
What could be my problem? (Specs are in sig)
