Hi

I have a new computer that has a raid 0 setup. Every so often the mouse will stick and release every half second and the sound will jutter when I play games or listen to music etc. When I switch off my wireless connection the problem goes away. I have been speaking to novatech and in the end I did a 4 hour mem test whihc found no errors and I flashed my bios as gigabyte release an update that improves win 7 compatibility. Im in college and the system admins noticed that in my processes my smss.exe is sitting at 4,295,002,215 and one of the sysem svchost.exe is sitting at 4,295,957,296. They gradually increase and never come down. There computers and my laptop are no where near these levels.

Novatech dont no what this is. Im waiting to see if the computer plays up again before I ask them to fix it(under guarntee. But I want to know why are these processes so high as this is over 8gb of constant I/O and could be part of the problem. I have ran multiple AVs with nothing found and the smss.exe is located in system32 so its not malware, I hope.

Any suggestions?

It is now passed 18gb amd increasing. Obviously this is what causing the lagging problem as eventually it will make the raid volume very active and everything else will suffer.

Could it be the actual os image thats bad?

Ive ran alot of spyware and avs with no joy
