Windows 7: Lag Spikes

03 Nov 2009   #1

Lag Spikes

Hello, im using my HD4650 to play Left4dead2 Demo!
I have these, lag spikes. (Not in lag as in connection / internet problems)
But as in "My graphics card is acting slow".
But these things only occur every 2-5 minutes!
You might be thinking "Ohhh, he's Laptop is overheating" - Im running with 2 extra fans on a stand, so that is out of the question.

Left4dead2 has the same minimum requirements as Left4dead1 and when i played that on my laptop with Vista, i had no lag at all.

And btw, the HD4650 has 1 GB dedicated ram.

I really need some help guys
- Best Regards Christian

Close all software not needed when playing. Many times, task manager is helpful here.
