Hello guys,

I have problem with GTA 5. The game runs 50-60 fps+, but my problem is freeze lag/shutter. When I played the game for first time I don't have problem with lags. Now the game runs with big lags/shutter when hard disk usage in task manger is 100%. In this video you can see the lags :  have lags when driving fast on roads who are not explored form starting game, when entering for first time in places (ammo-nation, apartament...), when landing on the ground. I play GTA 5 on my laptop. I am buyed my laptop (Asus X550JK) before 2 years. The game start shuttering after 5 min gameplay.

Heres my spec : Intel Core I7 4710HQ 2.50 GHz, up to 3.50 GHz 6 GB Ram GTX 850M 1 TB 5400rpm Hard Disk.

The game has a period when stop shuttering. After 1-2 months the game little by little starts again lagging. The same happens when I reinstall my Windows/PC. I want to buy external SSD. It will fix the lag/shutter? Im tried different methods from youtube to stop lags without effect - disabling supperfech, win search, win event log/collector, making settings from nVidia control panel, updating nVidia drivers, making fps limit with Dxtroy, making virtual RAM and more... Please help. I really want to play GTA 5 Online without lags. Thanks in advance.

Update your video drivers, select clean install in the installer.


If that doesn't fix it, lower your graphics settings, as interiors in gta demand more graphics power for who knows why.. it just happens..

Could be thermal throttling I suppose.

I played on a laptop for some time. Close all the running applications (Chrome, etc) when playing GTA V and keep the drivers updated.

Hard disk was the reason for me a while back, managed to fix it for a bit by defragging but in the end just bought a new hard disk and and never had the problem again.
