Asked By 210 points N/A Posted on -


I am a hardcore gamer. My PC configuration is 2.66 GHz Core 2 Duo, 2 GB RAM, ATI 4830 and ASUS P55 motherboard. But with this configuration I am facing stuttering problem. When I started to play games or give heavy loads my PC stutters. Sometimes without any loads it stutters and restarts.

You are facing a hilarious problem I think. But you have some lack of information in your post. I have also had the same problem. Now I am saying it. But first I am saying that I am user of AVG antivirus and it is the culprit. I am a user of AVG internet security. I use it because of its firewall and resident shield. Now the problem maker is the Identity Protection in AVG.

When you write something in the PC memory its work is to check that file thoroughly. Now if a system file wants to write some data in the memory it is also checked by Identity Protection. Then it delays that program and it makes your PC to stutter.

Again there is another possibility. This is occurred in Asus Motherboard. There is a port called Jmicron Pata Controller in the device manager. You can disable this to stop this stuttering. Try these two and hope the problem is solved.
