My problem occurs almost exclusively with Guild Wars 2, but I don't play other games currently so the only times I see issues outside of GW2 they are minor and over quickly. I'm not sure if this is a GW2 exclusive problem, or if it's just highlighting system issues.
While playing GW2 I have a recurring issue that won't go away. I'll be playing and suddenly the sound will cut out and most of the text will disappear in game. I have attached screenshots which demonstrate this. In one of the screenshots you can see that my engineer is in holo form, and yet the holo form graphics are not displaying!
. Another image shows me talking to the NPC Miyani and yet there is no dialog text nor is there text displaying where my mouse if over the pistol 4 skill
. A third screenshot shows a menu with missing text
Often this will occur for 10 to 20 seconds and then fix itself. Sometimes the game freezes for 10-30 seconds.
I've troubleshooted my SSD quite a bit, but nothing has helped and it seems to be functioning normally outside of the freezes. I've read that Windows 10 can have trouble with SSD's but nothing has helped from the list of fixes for that issue. I've done things such as making sure my hard drive is using AHCI mode and checking the SATA ports. Drivers are up to date. I've repaired the GW2 game client. This happens occasionally in Chrome but not as often as in GW2.
My system has a Ryzen 5 1600 processor, Radeon RX 560 graphics card, Gigabyte AX370 Gaming 5 motherboard, and an SSD.
