Hello all,
I didn't quite know where to topic this, but I'm really hoping to find some help. I'll try to prevent the wall-o-text, but it's difficult to explain!

In December I replaced my hard drive to a 250gb SSD 2.5" SATA blah blah blah. I had a fresh format, fresh install so I didn't bring any crap over I didn't want to. I have next to nothing on my computer except for my anti-virus/spyware. Microsoft Word and Excel, Google Chrome, and my Steam account with several games. After that, nothing else of extreme importance. I have weekly maintenance for my computer for scans, monthly defrags, etc.

My problem is this: Everything I do on my computer, EVERYTHING, suffers from random 15-30 seconds of freezing or loading time before it gets going. It could be loading gmail or random webpage, to starting a video on vlc player, to starting up Skyrim or other game. It doesn't happen every time, but when it does, my computer will just sit there. I can click on things, move my mouse, look at other windows, but I cannot open folders or interact with anything. Then after the period of time mentioned above , it will all load and get going. Once any of the above actually start, I have no further problems for the remainder of my time browsing, watching, playing. It's just weird, and frustrating at times when I'm trying to quickly get the weather or write a quick e-mail before walking out the door, ya know?

Anyhow, I'm no super techie, but I've run RAM tests, those seem to check out fine, I have no viruses or malware according to scans, and I don't have anything that really eats up my memory. I've noticed my last few times I've tried to watch a movie my VLC uses a pretty big chuck of RAM, but outside of that, I'm really out of ideas as to what's wrong, defective SSD maybe? Thanks for your help everyone, looking forward to a fix!

Hello spooli and welcome to G2G. This isn't uncommon when switching Hdds. I don't think it is causing your woes but you can stop the defrag scan as an SSD should nee defragged. If you could do the following so I can see your temps and what confilcts may be going on I'd appreciate it.

Download and run Speccy http://www.piriform.com/speccy. copy the provided link and post it in your next post.

If you are able to run the Speccy report it gives us most of what we need to see. It's very detailed as you will see. Thank you.

Your SSD status reports as "unknown" which means there could be some issues. I'd like yu to run a HDD test.

Download the following, after reading the instructions...burn the .iso file to CD...then run the long/extended generic diagnostic, please. Do not attempt any "fixes", just run the long diagnostic and post the results.

Guide, SeaTools For DOS - http://www.seagate.c...olsDOSguide.pdf


SeaTools for DOS Download - http://www.seagate.c...ols-dos-master/


Windows 7 and 8 have a built in ISO burner.

1. Insert a recordable CD, DVD, or Blu‑ray Disc into your disc burner.

2. Open Computer by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Computer.

3. In Windows Explorer, find the disc image file, and then double-click it.

4. If you have more than one disc burner, from the Disc burner list in Windows Disc Image Burner, click the burner that you want to use.

5. (Optional) If you want to verify that the disc image was burned correctly to the disc, select the Verify disc after burning check box.
If the integrity of disc image file is critical (for example, the disc image file contains a firmware update), you should select this check box.

6. Click Burn to burn the disc.

I can't seem to pull up the log results as the instructions say, but there wasn't much to show. My drive passed both the short and long tests. Something called SMART Support is enabled, and has not been Tripped. I'll keep trying to pull up the logs, but in my dos prompt typing DIR *.log as it said too simply tells me the serial number and that the volume in drive C has no label.

Hello. I'm fairly new to this forum and I happened across your post. I had the exact same problem a few years back and I thought I'd share what little knowledge I have of this issue: when it happened to me, I couldn't fix it. I put up with it for a couple of weeks and it went away by itself. As far as I am aware I made no changes to make this happen, it just seemed to have sorted itself out with no outside influence and it never came back.

Obviously this may not be the case for you but I hope that you get it sorted one way or another and if you can't - don't worry too much as it may sort itself out! :thumbsup:

Sorry to have potentially been of no use :lol:
