Basically i bought this pc about a month ago and its been doing this ever since. Its a graphical video lag as well as moderate sound distortion. Fixable by restarting once or several times. I have booted in to safe mode and this issue does not occur. I have done a clean boot and this issue does occur when disabling all processes that arent microsoft related. Here are my important specs:
CPU: Intel i7 2600k sandy bridge @ 3.4 ghz
GPU: 2GB AMD Radeon 7700 hd series
RAM : 8GB
intel motherboard. liquid cooled and gold power supply.
Basically There are so many fixed I have tried to no avail. At first i though it was a power issue but it indeed was not as nothing else was plugged intoi my surge protector. Ive updated my gpu and cpu drivers and still does not fix. I am using a 720p hdtv . Driver known as bby lcd tv. No updates anywhere for this. Its not like the computer is unusable. Its just slowed down to like 0.75 speed. adn the sound is off. Its all fixed after a few restarts. Then its performance is as it should be for and hour or two and then it goes back to its reduced state. Im really at a loss on what to do here. My disk sometimes does read very high. My cpu and gpu are nowhere near its limit. and the temps for both are excellent . Considering that it works flawless in safe mode i dont see how it would be a hardware issue. Im running windows 8.1 pro on an 225 gb ssd. Also I thought maybe it could be that the ssd in pointed down in the slot due to its small size. but after reinserting it and propping it up it only worked for about an hour and did its usual nonsense. I downloaded windows 8.1 from the microsoft website and then purchased a product key on ebay. This is incredibly annoying and greatly effects my gameplay . My tv is hooked up through hdmi from the gpu
I even turned off all of the fancy visualization features from windows 8.1 just for the hell of it. even though the cpu isnt running anywhere near max capacity. Please help me solve this issue guys lol.
