So I skipped ahead some but noticed I already have that W-LAN driver installed. Atheros Version 9.2.0.439?

Try uninstalling it, and reinstall the driver..

If that doesn't work, then try the modded driver.

If not, you gotta run Lat. DPC and disable each driver one by one to see whats wrong..

I've ran it for 2 days so far, and no problems.

Alright guys I downloaded the dpclat program and ran it while I was playing a single player Warcraft III match. Still got the spikes... DPC Lat says my computer is fine...

Any other ideas?

I'm betting it's the switchable graphics thing not recognizing my dedicated card... Might have to try that modded BIOS....

EDIT: Should I still try disabling and enabling drivers even though it says my computer should run fine?

Could be internet issues..

Try a defrag on your HD

Even on a single player game not utilizing any connection?

rockets are you running the Latency check program while you are playing the game? If you don't then obviously it won't register any lag spikes. But a defrag using Puran defrag is a good idea, it's better than windows defrag. Also check your power options to see if anything is holding back CPU or graphics in any way.
