My computer games are running slowly during gameplay. They all start off working just fine, then about 10 mins into any game (including low memory games like Polar Golfer and Diablo II) the gameplay goes into slow motion. This lasts for different amounts of time depending on the game. E.G Splinter Cell goes slow-mo for about 5 mins then returns to normal for 10, then slow-mo again and so on. Hitman is always slow mo. Polar Golfer goes slow mo for about 15 seconds then returns to normal for about 20 mins then slwmo again.
I've got my laptop running 22 processes and using about 2% Cpu mem (it jumps to 20-40% every fifteen seconds or so then straight back to 2%)
I've defragged, cleaned up, used Ccleaner and tracks eraser. I have norton anti-virus 2006 on and have no viruses or worms that it can detect (I'm also running ad-aware and yahoo spyware - no spyware present.)
I'm at my wits end. Is my laptop just not designed to play games!!!???
My Computer has 60gb of memory and I currently have 22.2 GB free. Everything else on the computer works just fine, it's just the gameplay!!!!!
Please help if you can
