When I boot and the Windows 7 desktop appears I can't use my keyboard and mouse for about 5 seconds. As a matter of fact none of my USB-connected periphals are available at that point. I have to note that it's my first system with a lightning fast SSD. Booting Windows to the desktop takes only 10 seconds. Maybe it's just too fast for everything to initialize?

here runs Skyrim on their PC but As the title says, How much RAM would I need to have in order to play The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim with NO lag, freezing, lag spikes, etc ?Updated my System Specs for reference. And I am planning to add more RAM, I don't know how much I should get though.
Here are my current computer specs: Intel Pentium 4 CPU 3.60GHz 2.00 GB RAM 32-bit Operating System AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series
I understand 2.00 GB is not a good amount for Skyrim as it continuously lags and freezes. What I need to know is how much RAM and/or other parts could I upgrade to make it run nice and smoothly, with hardly any if not no lagg at all? Also my motherboard has 4 slots for RAM, would it be possible to run 8GB ram on a 32-bit system?
My problem is that my boyfriend has blocked access to Skyrim, so that I can't play during work hours. If I try to run Skyrim it says: "Application not found". But other than that I'm afraid I know nothing about how he's done it!
I am by no means a computer expert so please bear with me here. I recently purchased all the necessary parts for my new computer and had it built by a friend who has done various builds for me in the past. I have been getting frequent BSODs. At first I thought it was related entirely to Skyrim, but I have also had a BSOD while burning a DVD and at idle. My system specs are as follows:
It is a retail version of Windows and everything is brand new.I have done the following: Malware test using Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware and have found nothing.Uniblue DriverScanner is showing all drivers up to date.I ran Prime95 and had no issues (temps stayed normal)I ran FurMarks and had no issues (again normal temps)I ran MemTest and the RAM passed without issue.I used HD Tune on the SSD and there also did not appear to be any problems.I have disabled Avira AV and still have the BSOD I updated the firmware on my SSD.I updated by bios I have installed, uninstalled, and reinstalled by GFX drivers.Nothing appears to be working and I would really like to get this issue resolved as soon as possible.Fortunately, since I just bought the parts at a local computer store I can return them for a direct swap if one of the parts is the issue. I have attached the memory dumps.
I get a computer crash while im playing skyrim. Its currently the only task I'v been experiencing this crash. The computer freezes, in the last frame of the game. I get a nasty sound in my headset, like a eletric interface kinda sound. The keyboard and mouse gets disabled (no lights or response)
I have a whole new computer, with new parts. running windows 7 professional 64bit
I wanted to get Skyrim for my laptop but the one weakness with my Sony Vaio is that it uses Intel HD Graphics 3000 integrated graphics and I was wondering if it will be playable. Also, if it can play it will it be playable at my laptops screen resolution of 1366x768?
Whilst playing Skyrim "it automatically detected Ultra High Settings on my AMD Radeon HD 7850 graphics card, with updated drivers" white lines began flashing, then odd shapes started appearing on the screen. I tried it in low quality and still the same problem. Surely such a graphics card would be able to handle Skyrim. I have no mods on texture packs and have not touched the files
I've had a nightmare with my computer over the last week with various random crashes whilst play Rift. Now I am struggling to even get past the starting video for Skyrim as the game is freezing and crashing (with the dreaded BSOD). When I see the screen it mentions the atikmpag.sys error.
- Windows 7 x64 - Original OS installed on my PC. - OEM version - PC came pre-built and is 4 months old - Intel Core i5 2500K Sandy Bridge Processor - Asus P8P67 PRO Motherboard - 4GB PC3-10666 DDR3 Memory - Radeon HD 6870 1024MB Video Card
I played the game for 100 + hours without problem, then this problem appears. Skyrim freezes then resumes then freezes every 5 seconds after playing for a few minutes. I tried re-installing the game, lowering the graphics to low, removing all mods. This is also not a savegame issue, it happens even in a new game. Also tried running in windowed mode, did not fix the issue. I also tried using game booster(to see if a background is causing this). I also tried running the game in my Windows XP partition, got the same problem. I do have the latest drivers and patch. One thing I have noticed is my CPU load goes from around 90% to 30% during the freezing.
I've been getting BSOD everytime I run a game which is graphic intense(like skyrim).I am using Alienware M17x with dual SLI with dual NVIDIA GTX 280m. I used to have a broken adaptor so I've been using a lower voltage adaptor that did not charge the laptop and used the Geforce 9800. This problem has been occuring ever since I got my new adaptor and has been using the 280m.
My computer has been working fine for almost a year now, and the BSOD just started two days ago while playing Skyrim. I thought it was just Skyrim, so I stopped playing that and just left it for a while. Today, my computer got the BSOD during normal flash gaming, and then again 30 or so minutes later when I was trying to post here.

my computer is giving me a hard time with all this BSOD.It works fine when im just surfing the net or watching videos, but when Im playing games like Skyrim, ME3 or Witcher 2 it just suddenly hangs and BSODs.The least time for this to happen is 20 mins and the longest time for this to happen is 4 hours. Which in those games cases is a short time.My Windows 7 is
- x64 - the original installed OS on the system? Yes
- an OEM or full retail version? OEM = came pre-installed on system
- What is the age of system (hardware)? Nov 10, 2012
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?) Same as hardware.
I was playing Skyrim last weekend, and the game froze on a black screen just as it was cutting to a kill animation. I had to restart the computer but when Windows loaded I had a BSOD. The computer booted fine up till this point.I've been looking up causes and fixes all week, and the dump files seem to suggest a 0x116 Video_TDR_error. I've attached all the requested information.I've already tried installing several different graphics drivers - the newest, the one supplied with the card, and one between. Windows and DirectX were fully up to date. I've also tried formatting the hard drive and installing Windows fresh, twice. I've had the computer back to the state it arrived in, when the drivers worked fine, and I've tried it with only the video drivers installed. Everything I try now is still resulting in the same BSOD.I can only get Windows to load in Safe Mode, or if I go into Device Manager and disable my graphics card. I am now fairly convinced the card itself is the problem, and I'm looking for confirmation before I go and get a new one fitted.The computer was new at the end of November. I had the same Windows install since then, but now I'm running a fresh install.
a crash occurred while i was playing skyrim,when i am in open world scree goes black within few minutes and weird noises start coming.Same thing happened while i was playing eflc.

2 nights in a row my machine has shut down instantly whilst i have been downloading many torrents via utorre### and playing skyrim or within seconds of closing down skyrim. to start up the machine i have to switch of the psu and unplug it. then plug it back in and witch it on. i have experienced these types of crashes before on a diferent machine. a have a sturdy 1000w psu. and even though i have multi tasked these two programs before. this is the beginning of a bad day
I downloaded Skyim from steam a while ago and after it had downloaded I was able to load the game up, however the lag was unbearable. It was simply running too slowly.I tried seeking help in various other places, but after looking in detail trying to see what the problem was I finally discovered that my Dedicated Video RAM was the only thing that was too low. It's a mere 64 MB and I need to try and get it to 512mb if I can.I've seen various people say that your dedicated memory can be increased, other have said that it can't be increased though. Which has left me utterly confused.Here are my System details.Manufacture: Samsung Electronics Rating (Windows Experience Index): 3.3 Processor: Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU T4400 @ 2.20GHz 2.20GHz Installed memory (RAM): 3.00 GB System type: 32-bit operating systemI'll try give any other necessary information if people let me know what they need/how to get it if the problem can be solved. If not then I guess that means I'd have to purchase a new computer?
I've noticed that I've been having a minor problem recently. Whenever I play Skyrim, after I quit, my taskbar lags and AMD VISION Engine Control Center freezes upon loading and doesn't let me click anything, so I have to kill it by right clicking on the icon. The only fix to both of these problems is restarting, which is kind of annoying. I've tried killing explorer.exe and reloading it through Task Manager, but that didn't work.
I know that this is a pretty vague explanation, but do you have any advice? I'm using a Radeon HD 6850, AMD Phenom ii x6 1065T 2.9Ghz (with TurboBoost), 8 GB 1333 RAM, nothing overclocked, and I've got the latest Catalyst/AMD/ATI video card drivers. I launch Skyrim through Steam, and I run it at almost max settings at 1920x1080. No other game I've tried has caused this. Is it possible that my problem might lie in TurboBoost, my graphics settings, or is it merely a software glitch that might get fixed later?
I've played: Killing Floor, Half Life 2: Episode Two Minecraft Team Fortress 2 Counter Strike: Source Garry's Mod Portal
On this computer. No really recent games, since this is new and those were the only games my other computer could support.
Has anyone figured out why the welcome screen spins for about 10 seconds ... then brings up the desktop. It is clear that startups are occurring as |I can here skype logging in. This is new in the RTM as RC did not have this long delay. All my device drivers are functional and working. The machine is running an SSD drive OCZ ... it is dual core 64 @2.1ghz --- a ripping machine. Yet the Welcome takes a long time.
Installed fresh copy of Windows 7 build 7100 x86 and there is long delay in boot sequence. Just windows logo animation shows and there is no activity around 1-2 minutes. Then Windows just start up without any error. Anyone know how to check what should be wrong? Previous builds was ok.
On ntbtlog.txt just found:

Windows 7 has been giving a bit of issues with delay or lag in typing I called Dell and received help in upgrading drivers.Things seem to work better then it went back to its old waysCan anyone shed light? why is there such a lag in typing when using win 7 having issue with cursor
I've started to experience a strange problem where my laptop seems to be completely idle before starting explorer.exe (So I have a blue desktop with only the mouse pointer) this is after login as I have it set to automatically login. I have tried various things, I have looked through Autoruns and there is nothing which I can find which would be delaying startup, I have tried removing almost everything non-essential from startup however the problem does not fix. I have also tried doing a boot trace with Process Monitor to see if any process is timing out, however nothing stands out to me as delaying explorer.exe from starting.
For some odd reason there is a noticeable delay once my laptop wakes from sleep. It will display the "press ctrl-alt-del" welcome screen almost instantly, but it takes 10-20 seconds for it to recognize when I actually press ctrl-alt-del. I don't remember it doing this when I first installed the RC, and I don't have any credential management software running. This is on an HP 6710b.
Windows 7 is booting normally and after I type my password in the login window the text 'welcome' shows up for 8 seconds or so. Then the screen fades to black. At this point, the only thing I see is the mouse pointer (which I can move). Pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del doesn't work (does not respond). This black screen lasts for about 40 seconds, then Windows finally progresses to the desktop. Before this problem occurred, Windows faded directly into the desktop after the 'welcome' text. Does anyone know how to solve this?
A while ago, I thought I had the solution to the 40 seconds delay by disabling the Workstation Service. But now I notice some things do not work anymore like filesharing via Hamachi or via standard Windows Networks, or joining a Domain. How can I fix the 40 seconds delay without disabling the workstation service?
I'm running Windows 7 64-bit on a new Asus laptop. I have multiple external USB 2.0 HDDs connected to this laptop via a powered USB hub, one a 2TB Fantom Greendrive and a second a 1TB archive drive. The 2TB drive is my multimedia drive, and contains most of my MP3 files, graphics files and other non-application and backup stuff. I use the 1TB drive as a secondary backup. Both are left connected to the hub at all times. This PC is hooked to a keyboard/monitor which is shared with a second computer (a Macbook) via a KVM switch.
What's happening is that after about 28 minutes of inactivity, the Fantom HDD begins to rapidly click as something begins thrashing the drive. This usually happens while I'm working on the Macbook, so the Asus is receiving no input form my keyboard/mouse (the KVM switch has switched to the Macbook). If I click back to the Asus laptop via KVM switch, the clicking immediately stops.
I've checked the system monitor and I don't see any corresponding spikes in memory usage for the time immediately preceding the switch back to the Asus laptop via the KVM switch, nor has any of my multiple antivirus or malware scans (AVG, Avira and MalwareByte's Anti-Malware) detected any infection. I also checked to make sure that the thrashing is not the result of any automated antivirus scans (all are set to on-demand scanning) or automated backups (disabled - I back all files up manually).
Last, thinking this might be caused by something lurking in my screensaver, I disabled all screensavers and the behavior continued. It seems to happen a few minutes after the when the "Turn Off Display" from power management is invoked - I have power management set to turn off my display at 20 minutes and the thrashing seems to begin about 8 minutes after that (??). This seems like something that would be the hallmark of malware ("start activities only when the monitor is switched off so the user can't see what's happening"), but all my scans come up clean.
I'm not so much worried that some piece of malware is scanning me (although I still think that's possible), as I don't hear the main C: drive being thrashed, nor is the other 1TB drive being thrashed - I'm more concerned about the drive getting trashed/worn out over time due to all the activity.
When I start up my computer, the superbar takes like 40 minutes to actually work. And like right now, I closed a window about 10 minutes ago but the icon is still in the bar. I can't open it up or anything, it's just there.
When it came back I installed everything and whenever I start it up there is a 10 second delay before the startup animation starts. then it takes its normal course. When my bootup starts now it seems as if it has a much longer bootup than before I rmaed it and it is quite annoying seeing as I have to shut it down because it will not resume from hibernate or sleep.
There is a good strait 2min delay between time open a program and time it opens, could this be avast?
I have 4 gigs ram labtop with duel core 1.3mhz 500 gig HD lots people either say its mother board or the HD.
I say I don't mind but it does bother me, i expect it to be faster... is avast slowing everything down? I have played around with the options on windows to speed it up and I can increase speed a bit but to me as long im not gaming (this is a cheaper labtop) I expect it to be quick...
I open a file and its a delay at least 30 secs. programs 1 -2min if it opens at all. I really want a test to explain issue. I be kinda mad if send it back to toshiba and wait a month to be told its not mother board or they don't cover it or blame it on me.... so I rather fix my self if I can.
I have speakers plugged into the tower's rear jack and headphones plugged into the front jack. (Windows 7 x64 HP desktop)The headphones have about a 1/4 second delay - this is also reflected in the tray's volume control level meters.
