    Intermitent Game Freezes with SSD

    mthortsen

      While I'm playing a specific online game(LOTRO), my screen will freeze. The sound and cursor are sill operational and usually after a few secs(10-25), it will unfreeze and I can resume playing. After hours/days of troubleshooting numerous items this is what I have found:

      - A new windows 7 install on the WD 640GB HDD and no game freezes.

      - A new windows 7 install on the Intel SSD and game freezes.

      The SSD has the latest firmware and is using AHCI. It only appears to happen on this game. I've played numerous other games on this drive with no apparent issues. I've been working with LOTRO support and have finally narrowed it down to this as the cause. Would appreciate any help on resolving this.   Thanks
