Windows 7: Windows 7 Spider Solitaire card moves lagging

Windows 7 Spider Solitaire card moves lagging

I have a newer HP laptop that I have been playing Spider Solitaire on frequently without problems for the past six months. This week, out of the blue, any card moves are taking 7-13 seconds to complete. I then tried regular Solitaire and it is having the same problem. This obviously makes playing these games impossible. These are the fixes I have tried so far:

1. Update graphics card driver - states I am using the most current driver.
2. Ran sfc /scannow to search for corrupted files - can was OK.
3. Tried turning games features off then back on in the control panel - no help.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I would also run a virus scanner just to be safe. Could be a number of things, bad RAM, Video Adapter going out, not enough power for Video Adapter, Virus, outdated drivers, etc...

I know you already checked your video drivers, but what model of video card do you have, and what is the version number of the software/drivers.
