Hey guys i have a major problem with my PC and i don't really know how to fix it, hope you can help me
Two weeks ago my PC started lagging whenever i would run Firefox with more than 5 tabs in it, especially if one of the websites from those tabs contained Flash content. Sometimes it gets laggy by simply starting Facebook or by pointing the cursor at something, an element, an image that changes on mouseover etc. When i play the game Heroes of Newerth or Counter Strike 1.6 my PC laggs whenever i move the cursor. If i don't move the cursor everything works perfect.
I'm thinking it could be the CPU or one of the HDDs because i just bought the GPU.
And for some reason in Device Manager, it displays my SAMSUNG HDD as being ATA, despite the fact that it is SATA. Here's a screenshot
I checked the Task Manager in the Performance tab when these lags occurred and it seems the CPU usage spiked up.
- Windows 7 32-bit
- Intel Core2 Duo E7300 @ 2.66 Ghz
- 1 SATA SAMSUNG 160 GB and 1 ATA WDC 80 GB HDD
- 2 GB RAM
- GeForce GTS 450 - 512 MB GDDR5
