I've had a really odd computer problem ever since I built my machine about a year ago.
Basically, my computer will start stuttering every second. It happens randomly, anywhere from 2 minutes after boot to 20 hours after boot. It also happens with nothing running or when I'm playing a game, just totally random. Once it starts stuttering, its best described as freezing for 1 second, with sound looping/everything else frozen, and then unfreezing. This process repeats over and over again and the only solution I've found to fix it is restarting my computer.
Now, I've tried looking for help to fix this for a very long time and have never found a solid solution. Some things I have done so far....
-Reapplied thermal paste to CPU
-Run various virus scans
-Turning off hyperthreading in BIOS
-Cleaned out computer case
-Repairing Windows XP
-Ran MEMtest(came back fine)
My computer specs are as follows:
Intel Core2 Duo CPU E6750
2 Gigs of crucial ddr2 ram
GeForce 8800 GT
550w corsair power supply
GIGABYTE p35-DS3P motherboard
Windows XP Pro Edition SP2
Onboard sound card
Western Digital Raptor HD 150GB and a 120GB secondary drive
Here is a picture of my computer temps, taken with SpeedFan - http://i39.tinypic.com/wpbhh.jpg
I really have no clue on how to go about fixing this now....any help is greatly appreciated.
Please ask me if I need to give any more information for you to assist me.
(Don't really know if this is the right place to put this, but then again I have no clue what is causing this ><)
