  1. About a week ago some PC games started to stutter. It was fine up until then.

    Call of Duty in-game stutters when a new map is loaded and after a few minutes seems to get better.
    Also the new Broken sword game sometimes is ok, but all of a sudden starts to lag/stutter Heres my specs

    Win XP sp2
    AMD 64 Atlon 3400+
    ATI radeon 256MB
    1 GB RAM

    I know it could be many things, but could someone give me some info? The fact its only just started to happen could be a setting out of place?

    Thanks, DJ.

    ram issue i think, i had that with 256mb ram. Maybe your RAM is bad or dying. I upgraded to 2GB and now its perfect.

    Thanks for the advice. I decided to open up my PC and inside, it was covered with thick dust! After a few hours cleaning everything, the stuttering has stopped!
