  1. I need help diagnosing a suddenly sluggish stuttering Win 10 install


    Hi All,

    I started my back up Win 10 PC tonite to do any last updates before I put in in the closet and It started up oddly and is very sluggish now. It did do a few updates, and each time, I walked back into the room to a black screen. It seemed stuck there. I tapped the mouse and it returned to a update screen. It also seems jittery, and the 3D screensaver now jerks around in a circle, rather than in the normal smooth flowing way. One time it was actually stopped, than it slowly started jittering around. In know something is wrong and I need to correct it . But being a backup PC would just resetting and starting from scratch be easier.

    Looking for some suggestions

    :)

    Win 10 CU (not FCU) stutters and freezes a lot with various operations


    I get momentary freezes and stuttering with a range of Windows menu operations. *sarc These are the ones that are top of mind but I'm sure there are others. Win 10 Pro 64, up to date on patches.



    • Xing out a FireFox tab
    • Click on FILE menu (drop down is delayed)
    • FILE > Print (printer list or print menu is delayed)
    • Selecting a higher level on the file path in the SAVE menu
    • Search menu at bottom of Windows
    • Typing in many situations.

    Any suggestions? Or this this a known problem in Win 10? I've had this problem for some time, but lately it has gotten me really PO'ed.*Confused

    Windows 10 suddenly turned sluggish

    I use Windows 10 on a Dell Precision M6600 workstation. It is a few years old but high-end laptop, with an i7 processor, 12 GB RAM, two 256-GB SSDs, and an NVIDIA 3000M graphics adapter. I have been running Windows 7, then 8.1 and then 10 with excellent performance.

    Suddenly, one or two months ago, the machine turned sluggish. Opening Edge takes a few seconds, switching tabs takes also a few seconds, and working with large and complex documents in Word or Publisher, which used to be snappy, is now almost impossible; they often freeze for several seconds when zooming in on a page. Entering text into the Windows/Cortana search box is almost impossible: buffered characters appear one per second or worse.

    CPU, memory, and disk loads seem not to be the problem, because Task Manager and Performance Monitor report very low figures. For example, when Publisher or Word freeze up, CPU rarely goes above 10%, memory is usually around 30 or 40%, and disk rarely goes above 5%.

    A couple of weeks ago, I repaired Windows (which deleted all the installed apps but kept my data) and reinstalled everything. For a few days, the machine performed very well, but then it went back to being sluggish as usual. It seems that becoming sluggish is a gradual process over an extended period of time rather than a sudden change.

    I have considered a faulty video driver, but honestly I have no idea what the problem may be, or how to diagnose it. Can you help? Thanks.

    Very interesting. Our default suggestion list for fighting stutter becomes more interesting.
