Windows 7: High CPU usage, low fps, high latency.

High CPU usage, low fps, high latency.

Since Jan-Feb of this year I have encountered the following issue while trying to play games on my laptop.

Abnormally High CPU Usage
Extremely low FPS - After 5-20 Mins of play.
Extremely High latency to servers - from 300 - 900 after 5 - 20 mins of play.

The thing is all of these started 1 year after I been using this laptop, after a full year of everything running flawlessly all these issues kicked in after I performed a clean install in Jan., I even performed one in Feb. and one 3 weeks ago, since someone suggested this could fix my issue and I still face the same problem.

I would kindly take any suggestions since I am so desperate that I am considering trowing this device out the window.

Here are my specs:

OS Name Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium
Version 6.1.7600 Build 7600
System Manufacturer Dell Inc.
System Model Studio 1558
Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 CPU M 520 @ 2.40GHz, 2400 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)

All of your symptoms could be a driver issue. Please download this free latency checker and run it to see if it is.

Alright so I gave this a try and played arou disabling different devices in the computer, at times it does seem that it has helped a little bit with ts but I cant be 100% onn it since issues still persist.

Any other suggestions?

Alright so I've known of this, but still gave it a try and searched a lot around the net this week, and did further testing on it, see if could get somewhere.

In a moment of frustration i started killing off services, and I got to one that did eliminate any issue, the only problem is that the laptop shut it self down after a few minutes and now cant remember what service or process I killed. Any other suggestions?

System restore... or you could go to someplace like Black Viper's and look at his list to see what the defaults should be. Black Viper’s Windows 7 Service Configurations | Black Viper's Website | www.blackviper.com

System Restore is not a working option since a clean install of windows doesnt fix the issue.

I checked the list for the W7 services, and still nothing, I've gathered some info from different sources that it could be a Audio Issue but I've tried available fixes and ideas and still nothing.

Have you tried disabling your Antivirus and/or Firewall when gaming?

Worth a shot IMO.

Network usage causes high DPC Latency
Hey everyone, Happy New Year :) After about 24 hours of booting my computer, I have seen my DPC Latency spike tremendously. At first, I thought this was an issue with my network card (since disabling it would drop DPC Latency), so I bought a new card. The problem didn't go away, so I realized...

This problem began yesterday. I noticed my CPU was at 90C constantly with very high CPU usage (>50%). I had no major programs running. I rebooted several times and the program persisted. 1. I went into safe mode and everything was normal. So this rules out hardware issues. 2. I reformatted and...
