Windows 7: Lag with video games

It is entirely possible that your CPU is being throttled back when it reaches a certain temp the coolsoff and then speeds back up again.

Rig up some kind of hokey cooling like a fan blowing directly to the intake ports for the cooling and see if that helps.

MOST laptops do not do well for anything processor or GPU intensive for very long because they almost all have inadequet cooling

Sometimes those cooling pads can help if the holes line up and the airfow is the right direction (but they can hurt too if blowing air the wrong way or something)

Thank you, I will try to buy a cooler.

And @ TaraSWinTeam I actually ment Windows 7 but thank you, I'm going to try to fix this now.

One last thing I installed some new drivers for my laptop like recomended, they are fine and such but now i have an error message that pops up everytime I log in. The error message says something about NVPCI.DLL not working or something, I will post the exact message as soon as possible.
EDIT: It said:

Error in NVCPL.DLL
Missing entry:NvStartupRunOnFirstSessionUserAccount

The 8400M gs has problems with overheating. Mine gets to 111 degrees C then slows down the same as yours does which in turn reduces the temperature.
There is also a problem with the manufacture of these cards which combined with the heat cycles is causing high failure rates. Dell are offering an extended warranty. Full details are available here:http://en.community.dell.com/blogs/d...t-details.aspx

What I got from my computer:
Studio 1440/14z

What else do you need? It also said product numbers and keys but I think that was just for purchasing.

I apologize for being misunderstood, that wasn't intended to be insulting towards you, it was an attack on the ignorance I saw in an attempt at an answer.

That's a rather low powered CPU, I believe that's the problem, I'm running a somewhat similar CPU, and it's starting to fall behind with modern games.
