keep in mind that the Radeon X1550 is no longer supported by ATI drivers, it is a legacy product and isn't officially supported by Windows 7.

Yea i know but it worked fine for a long time so i see no reason to stop.
Btw, installed a previous version of the driver and still get the fps drops, i tried, unnistalling and reinstalling 10.2 (most recent version) and unnistalling 10.2 and isntalling 9.11 (previous version) and both dint work... I want to and i will buy a better computer but until i can afford it, i wanna use this one even if its just for LoL

Have you Trieste to restore your system with a system restore point?

You could try to reinstall Windows...

Age of components also has a lot to do with performance.
Don't expect an old computer to perform the same way it did in 2001 even if you reinstall the original software.
It will not.

Well yea i know but im just trying to do whatever i can cause its ahrd for me now to buy even a Ram memory :S
Yes, i did reinstall windows, but i had windows 7 i cuoldnt find the CD, so i installed WinXP, worked fine without lags for a while, then it started droping again, but less frequently
I was able to play some games on high graphics, such has league of legends, and i could play games with Low/Normal graphics such has CodMW3, then sudently bam this happends
Edit: Been checking the hardware and stuff, noticed my GPU is pretty hot, theres only like a metal cooler and not a fan, i dont even need to touch the graphic card cause just by putting my hand a bit closer i can feel the heat, so it might be above 30 or something like that... Is there anyway i can make this low the temperature? unil i get a new GPU

Above 30? Most likely above 50 or even 60.
Point a fan at the computer without the side panel.

Okay, you are making it difficult. We can help, but we don't do miracles. If it's a hardware limitation there is nothing we can do besides telling you to replace the components.

In this case, maybe you should try getting a summer job so you can raise some money and pay for new parts or a new computer?
