Well:

  • Its not heat
  • Its not hardware
  • Probably not IRQ's and you most likely wouldn't be able change it if it was
  • Its not the antivirus
I'm leaning towards a software or Windows Update conflict - I would reinstall 7 and then install only the drivers, windows updates, and games in that order. If there is no lag, its software.

Use your disk to install 7 again, freshly formatting.

Back everything up - have you been using Windows Backup? Everything will go. Then follow the post above - the games will most likely work.

Plug in an external hard drive, search for backup in the start menu and then back everything up now. Then, back up vital files manually to the same driver in a separate folder. Once that is done, reformat and reinstall 7. Use the drivers guide in my sig to update your drivers. For a laptop, look for the manufacturer's web site.
