Windows 7: Entire system is lagging while playing games

Entire system is lagging while playing games

Hello everyone, Well today I launched Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and maybe 30 seconds into playing, my entire system begins to lag for 5 second intervals, it will stop and return to normal, but keep doing it for 5 seconds at a's very annoying, i thought it was just a glitch so i restarted the game, it did it again, i restarted my system twice and tried again, but it continues to happen. I figured it was just the game, and so i Launched Crysis, and it did the same thing. I checked all my processes, and the only things i had open were skype and the game itself. I updated my graphics card drivers, I had my fans turned up all the way, everything is like it always is. I dont know what to do or how to fix this problem, any suggestions could help.
Thank you

I had something similar to this happen before my RAM died on my, but in reality it could be almost anything. A full rundown of your system specs may be useful.

Welcome to SF Klosterman95. Before we get into further details i would suggest you to test your RAM with MemTest86 which can download from Burn the ISO on the disc (Bootable) and test your RAM's for at least 3 Test's. If you have any Anti-Virus software installed so try disabling it before launching the games also make sure there are'nt any background scans running.
