Stuttering In games w/ no ping spike or fps drop RRS feed

  • Question

  • Been happening for a few weeks, when I play games (Smite, Fistful of Frags, Tekken 7) I get stuttering every few seconds, where my view freezes and then suddenly updates with where I actually am. As the title says, I get no fps drop nor a ping spike when this occurs. In Fistful of Frags, I tried spectating to see if it persisted, It very strangely did not. Once I stopped spectating and joined the game however, it began again. I have been using this exact pc for years with little change to hardware. The only event even vaguely associated is that I am now on university wifi.

    here's my specs:

    MSI 970 Gaming Motherboard

    AMD 8350 eight-core processor

    GTX 960

    Linksys WUSB6300 Network Adapter (I know USB is not ideal for this)

    here's what I've tried:

    Updating network adapter driver

    Updating graphics driver

    closing other potential problem programs

  • When such freezing is happening immediately after playing the game then look at the event viewer  application error logs created after this ....it  will give you the clue. Post back here with error logs which will help us to help you further.

    To launch the Event Viewer, just hit Start, type “Event Viewer” into the search box, and then click the result. Expand Windows Logs and click on Application log records. Here look for the errors created related to games.
