My computer is experiencing very bad stuttering shortly after startup. This does not occur in games, only outside like on Youtube, moving mouse, etc. The problem was ocurring on my last hard drive and I replaced it, so I don't think that's the problem, although I hear my hard drive making some strange noises. I ran a test on the hard drive anyways and it said it was running 49 degrees C but that shouldn't cause this type of stutter right? Could anyone help me identify the component that's causing this (RAM?) Info below:

install crystal disc info and see what it says about your HDD.  speccy may give a detailed SMART report also, click on storage and it will display the info for you.

Everything checks out on the speccy report here:        https://imgur.com/PUogkdo

 

My HDD does make this strange rumbling noise half the time, my last one didn't..  is this normal?

Here is my crystal disk info scan:      https://imgur.com/TMYFTsk

How do those numbers look?

 

 

Thanks

number look great for the HDD itself.  some drive are noisier then others and that's normal.  now if your hearing whining or knocking thats when you need to worry.

 

is this audio stuttering, your talking about?

 

I would look at your task manager performance tab and see what the HDD & CPU are doing.  if either are maxed out and running all the time then it would cause your stuttering. if this is the case you need to figure

out what software is causing them to be run hard.

Here is what the resource monitor on task manager showed when I'm getting stuttering                https://imgur.com/prvYXwj

And here is my CPU/memory usage from above             https://imgur.com/w6bTVn1

 

It doesn't look to be a CPU issue. Probably RAM then? What do you think. Is there any way I can test the RAM for problems?
