I have been getting these "pauses" or glitches in all my games while playing. The game will just pause and then catch up a few frames later. I did not have this problem before with my previous computer and I never notice it on playstations or xbox.
I do a full install of all the games as well as having all virus software turned off.
My harddrive is constantly defraged and my desktop is very clean.
I have no screensavers, and my setup isn't too shaby, this is why I'm so stumped and asking for help here.
My setup is:
Windows XP Professional SP1
Catalyst 3.1 latest drivers
biostar kt400 latest bios 8x AGP
Western Digital 120 gig 8 meg cache
Corsair XMS3200 CL2-2-2-5-2
ATI RAEDON 9500 PRO
Sony 420gs Multiscan Trinitron (1280 x 1024)
(I have changed the screen rez and refresh rates)
Audigy 2 Platnum
I just can't seem to figure out what I'm doing wrong here, the pauses happen in all games and I've have shut down almost all processes when I boot up and I even have tried running games at 640x480 with the same problem.
