Hello,

Apologies if this is not the right forum.

For over a year now my PC has been stuttering, audio and graphics. The audio will cut and the screen will hang before resuming after 0.5 - 1 second, and this will continue to happen every 5 - 10 seconds. This doesn't happen all the time (gone weeks & months without it but it keeps coming back eventually) but when it does it seems to continue for a while then resolve itself. Restarting sometimes fixes it but not always. It does not seem to correlate to the temp of my components. More intensive things i.e. games have it worse but when it is happening even youtube has audio stutters/cut outs to a degree.

I've tried all the usual stuff - drivers up to date, ram and storage scanned for issues. I've cleaned the inside of my pc out as best I could. It's driving me absolutely insane and now I feel like getting a new PC even though I only got this one at the beginning of 2020.

Any help would be much appreciated, even narrowing down if it is a software or hardware issue.

Thanks

Specs
