Windows 7: Freezing in games

Freezing in games

I have been having this problem in games where it runs fine for 2 seconds and freezes for 2 seconds and keeps that doing over and over. I did a completely fresh install of windows and the problem is still there. And there are basicaly no files except for nfsmw 2005 and chrome are the only things i installed. I have all the latest drivers.

Intel core i5 2430m
Intel hd 3000
Toshiba 500gb hdd
4gb 666 mhz ram.

Has the laptop been cleaned inside? Was the laptop CPU's thermal paste replaced?

I think it's overheating.

There could be a couple of reasons for this, for example, it could be caused by faulty RAM. Maybe you could try is preventing all programs (via msconfig > startup) from starting up with Windows except the ones you really need. Reboot in Safe Mode (to also exclude drivers) and see if this somehow helps?

It doesn't seems to be a software problem i think. What games are you trying to play and at what settings?

the same problem >trying playing smite and it freezes for 2 sec-CTRL+ALT+DELETE and fixes itself for an undefined time.GPU <65 Celsius. Well I think GPU overheats, but I can be wrong. Also, it says "Display driver stops working... " or something like what. so it might be GPU.
