Hi guys, first of all i want to say that i have read the guidelines and did what it said there, like running MemTest+86 for testing RAM and running Everest for testing temps.
The problem is that when i'm playing in my laptop, any game (such as SC2, D3, TFT2, etc) freezes a fraction of time between half a second or even 5-6 seconds, which is very annoying because game doesn't really stop and i lose time in SC2 or get killed in TFT2/D3.
I've tried so many things and i don't know what to do anymore. It seems to happen in every single game I play, even in low settings, so i think it's a problem concerning virtual memory or memory transfer between RAM and HDD.
Here i put my system settings, which would be causing any problem imo:
Processor: Intel® Core™ i7 720QM Processor SO: Genuine Windows® 7 Home Basic Chipset: Intel® HM55 Express Chipset Memory: DDR3 1066 MHz SDRAM, 4GB Graphic: ATI Mobility™ Radeon® HD5730 with 1GB DDR3 VRAM HDDs: 320GB 5400rpm/7200rpm 320GB 5400rpm/7200rpm
Laptop is ASUS N71JQ more precisely. If you wnat to know any other data or anything else i forgot to say, just tell me.
Yeah Cyber_cheese my drivers are up to date, CCC 12.4 from ATI. Besides that, i also tried to defrag my hdd before, and the problem was there before the defrag and also after it.
It occurs for example in D3 when a character is going to say something. The game freezes for a moment, and then the character starts talking after the freeze like if it hasn't happened anything. In SC2, it occurs for example when i'm gonna build something.
Anyways, i'll try to defrag again later, but i'm afraid it isn't that.
Thx for your answer Cyber_Cheese

Clean out the dust. Seriously. My laptop was getting up to 90 something celsius. Blew some compressed air through all the vents to get dust out, now it won't get above 55 degrees celsius. I don't know if overheating is the problem you have but I got lag very similar to what you described. I noticed it most when I was shift queing workers to make buildings the go back to mining.
This may not fix it but it certainly won't hurt.
Edit: I used a program called Core Temp to monitor the temperature of my laptop's cores. It's free and can be easily found via Google search
