Yes i read the stickied thread it did not seem to help answer my questions haha.
Recently google chrome updated to 13 and adobe flash 10.3 ever since then iv'e been having trouble playing flash based content in google chrome. It plays, and games work, but they get very low fps (it did not do this before the update) I read somewhere it could be an intel driver
related problem for those using internet explorer 9, but i still have internet explorer 8 nor do i even open it or use it regularly.
& come to think of it, ever since i got this computer its felt laggy, everything i do on it.. i know it isn't the monitor. I can supply more info if questions are asked.
Here is a screenshot of graphics / driver info
