Okay, so my wife has a PC I built not too long ago. It was fine for quite a while, but has developed an unusual set of problems.
Basic setup is:
Just installed - GTX 770
Win 7 64bit.
What has developed is a sort of stutter, along with exceptional boot times (after post to windows desktop specifically). There will be periods of time, several minutes at least, where everything has functioned perfectly, then it hits. It's like nothing wants to load, nothing wants to move or react to any input on the screen. This can last anywhere from 20-60+ Seconds. No idea why.
Tried various malware and anti-virus to no avail. Tried uninstalling junk, disabling startups and services that weren't necessary. I even formatted the machine when this started, and it didn't really change anything.
I'm about to scrap the HDD next I think.
Would love any thoughts or suggestions.
