I first noticed this issue when I was watching a video and my mouse and keyboard had been idle for about 5 minutes. The sound continued to play but the video stopped until I moused over the video player. The video then played in super speed for about a second to catch up to where it should be. I've noticed that this issue happens even when I am not watching something. If my mouse and keyboard are idle for a few minutes while playing a game, same problem. Lately, when I go to move my mouse to get the graphics to catch up, sometimes my computer will seize up completely and just black screen and restart. I don't know why this is happening. At first I thought it could be my graphics driver so I waited for the newest Nvidia driver to come out and downloaded it. Still the same issue. Any help would be appreciated.

PC Specs:
Windows 10 Pro 64bit
Intel core i7-4790

Thanks for the update.

You have adequate free space on the C drive.

Please start Revo.   When it opens, it should display your installed programs, please post a screenshot.

 

If you have Malwarebytes installed, please run, or Download and run, > http://www.majorgeek...ti_malware.html

 

See if Reliability Monitor can pinpoint the freezing issue, > http://www.pcworld.c...ne-your-pc.html
