Windows 7: My laptop freezes but just in some particular games and programs

My laptop freezes but just in some particular games and programs

well my laptop was performing fine until a few weeks ago it started to freeze up during some games which it didnt before. I play games a lot so i thought my laptop had lost it efficiency but there are other games where everything is smooth.

Ever since then i have been surfing the net searching for solutions but havent found any that has helped me yet. I have done the "dxdiag","updating drivers", "windows memory diagnostics","windows update" and so on but everything seems fine. I have been going through enough posts so i think my system specifications is required.

My laptop is Sony Vaio C series
AMD Radeon HD 6630M
i5-2410M CPU @ 2.30 GHz
windows 7 home premium 64 bit
directx 11

Currently the programs/games that lags are vlc player(movies dont run as smooth as it used to), World of Warcraft, Counter Strike (offline or online).
However games that requires higher graphics like Assasin's creed works just fine.

This is the problem i face and sry my examples are just games but its really causing me a problem and i hope someone can help me with this.

P.S. I dont know if this thread goes here or not. I hope the mods can move it to the right section if i made a mistake
