I try to post this problem in the best way I can describe it. Please excuse me, I am a Newbie, so probably some information will be missing.
I installed Manjaro 5.4.6-2 KDE a couple of days ago and had no problems so far. Today I started the laptop and since then have constant stutters. The screen freezes for a few seconds and does not respond to anything. I can move the mous, click and type, but nothing happens. after a few seconds the typed text appears on the screen and I can go on working. I had these freezes or stutters on this laptop with differrent Linux distros (Kubuntu Manjaro XFCE) before, but far less often. This is highly annoying and practically makes the system unusable. The stutters appear to be completely regardless of the system use. I can have dozens of programs open and using a lot of resources ore simply run on browserwindow. I have googled for about two hours, and found that a lot of people seem to have freezes for very different reasons. Now I am trying to narrow down, what the reason on this machine could be.
CPU: intel i5-5300 @2.30 GHz
GPU: INtel HD-Grpahics
RAM: 8 GB
Disc: SSD 500GB Kingston
What I have done so far:
- I did a MemTest (twice) which returned no errors
- I did a SSD Test with Smart from the Windows Partition which returned that the SSD status is fine.
What to do next?
