hello everyone, im still trying to figure out why my computer is lagging on the easiest-to-run games out there like World of Warcraft. But anyways, I really need to know what exactly is lagging my computer, and dont really know where to start. But I'll Post my specs for you guys to take a look at and show you what i have already done.
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Processor Quad Core 3.20 GHz
4.00 GB of DDR2 Ram
ATI Radeon HD 5850 1gb of GDDR5 ram i believe. Don't remember specifically.
Windows 7 64 bit OS
I have a fan on my processor. I have 3 case fans that are working, and one has stopped working.
755 Watt Power Supply
If you need any other things that i might have left out, let me know in your replies.
What i have done:
I have done a memtest from the CMD prompt, and there was nothing wrong there.
I checked my processor speed and it still is 3.20 GHz, because when i first got this computer, the mobo wasn't compatible with the processor. So it only let me use like 1.2 ghz of it.
I've scanned my computer for viruses.
At this point i have no idea what to do, it is rather frustrating when i can't play even the simplest of games without the entire computer lagging.
The lag itself goes like this. I will be playing for maybe 30 seconds, then my frames will drop to 1 or 2 fps for 5-7 seconds at a time, then continue for about 9-10 seconds, then go back to 1 or 2 fps for 5-7 seconds. and It continues like that.
Any suggestions will be helpful, so PLEASE help!
