Windows 7: Lag with video games

Crysis on a 9400M? GIve up, that laptop will barely play DirectX9 games - update your drivers but that probably won't help much.

I really just use the editor that comes with it and it's worked fine for me in medium graphics settings. But it seems like this problem with games is happening with a lot of people, and not just on super high graphics games. All my Half Life 2 games can run fine accept with my problem.

P.S I use about 45% of all the space on my copmuter

Check for program compatibility: Open the Program Compatibility troubleshooter.

If they are older games (XP or older) you can try compatibility mode: Make older programs run in this version of Windows.

Have you updated all your drivers? Use the guide in my sig and get the latest DirectX 9 too.

I've installed the new drivers, but should I still run in all the combatibility modes?

Nope, didn't work really, made it go a little longer without lagging though

Try compatiblity mode with Vista SP1 and Running as Administrator. I don't think you need any extra options. Disable any unessential background processes too.
