Windows 7: LAG Spike during games on Windows 7 Laptop

LAG Spike during games on Windows 7 Laptop

Hi guys,

For some odd reason, whenever I play any game, it starts off crisp smooth and then maybe 10-20 minutes later it goes completely laggy and then about 20 minutes later, it goes back to smooth gameplay. Some instances of this is when I play Star Wars Battlefront 2, Battlefield 2, ArmA II, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. I have tried to set the game's priority to High but it does very little improvment and I have tried Game Booster aswell.

AMD Athlon(tm) Neo Processor MV-60 1.60ghz
2GB Ram
32 Bit System
ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics

And a laptop cooler fan placed underneath.

BTW: It is not my laptop specs fault because it runs smoothly at first and then it begins to lag and then it goes back to normal.

How old is the laptop? How long have you owned it? And how long has it been doing this?
