Hello everyone,

have recently been experiencing some issues with the computer freezing momentarily (mostly for not even a second)...

the issue first appeared a while after i installed GTA SA from steam (came with the pre order for GTA V) and first occured in game.


It affects the whole computer, although shortlived it's annoying as hell as you can imagine beacause every few minutes it does the same....


Appears to affect the whole computer not only video or audio playback (which i first thought was the case).


Ran combofix, etc... because i thought it was possibly a virus/malware, but now i'm doubting if it is maybe hardware related? (if that's possible)


Atm i'm completely at a loss what to do next, so any help is welcome!!!

Since you problem start after installing the GTA SA, I would suggest uninstalling it to see if this is causing the problem.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
