|I have been really frustrated with this issue for a while now. I had this issue with vista and did not experience it initialy with windows 7. I dont even remember now how much time went by before the issue was plaguing me again.|
Just about doing anything on the computer has a slight amount of hesitation. the less you do obviously the less hesitation there is and the more you are doing, more hesitation. Opening programs, folders, web pages even clicking on the start menu. For example, I click the start menu, 1 sec, than it appears I select a program, depending on the program it can take anywhere from 10-30 secs before anything appears. To get straight to the point and the worst of it all, when I am in a game full screen and hit alt+tab it takes an extreme amount of time just to minimize. Then, I follow by opening a web page, this takes another huge amount of time to appear and load and every additional tab takes just as long. Now in game, it seems I am right on top of things before they are drawn in and if I sit there I can watch things eventualy appear around me and in the distance. At the same time, I experience little lag and once things load they run extremely well and a full speed. My laptop when put through the same processes has no trouble given that it has similar and not quite as good hardware as my desktop.
