So for a while now, I have been having problems in applications such as games and in web browsers where what I am doing seemingly freezes for around a second before rapidly catching up.
For example, it did it as I was wiring this very message. I typed in ar then everything seemingly stopped doing anything. After about a second, ound then appeared on the screen in a sort of delay. The blinking cursor to denote where I am typing also continued to blink like I was not typing at all, until the freeze stopped and the delated text was entered.
If I am playing a video game, say Overwatch. I will be running down a hallway when everything seems to lock up for a second. Once it unlocks, I find myself further along said hallway like the game had continued to act on the instruction I gave it until the freeze stopped. What doesn't happen is I come back and find that I have not moved (unless I stopped giving instructions to move).
I have had this issue for quite some time now. It is an issue that has carried over to my new PC which is completely new parts. The only two components that have come from the old machine are the SSD and the HDD. It is also worth mentioning that the PC doesn't freeze indefinitely either. It happens for but a second and then resumes normal functionality. No restart is required as nothing has crashed.
The PC is a brand new build with a fresh copy of windows on the SSD. The HDD was also wiped and everything reinstalled fresh onto the new computer.
I have tried looking online for a solution, but everything I seem to find comes back to fixing full-on crashes.
Edit: I posted this late at night local time. If I do not respond right away, I am likely asleep. Though your quick feedback is appreciated nonetheless.
