Solid-state hard drives are quickly becoming the wave of the future for computer storage devices. The solid-state drive uses no moving parts. This improves the reading and writing speeds of the hard drive, which improves the overall performance of the computer itself. Solid-state drives are not without their problems, however. Disk stuttering is common among first-generation solid-state hard drives and means that the computer is trying to write to the hard drive, but the hard drive will not accept it. This ends up making the operating system stutter as it tries to access the drive. Microsoft has released the one known fix for this problem.
