Angry Lag spikes in offline games
I recently purchased an new laptop from ibuypower it ran all my games fine no lag . About a month or so ago i recently began getting 1-2 min lag spikes when playing games , online and off. I would like to know if there is a way to fix this , or where the problem lies .

I'm using : 2.00 ghz intel dual core processor
Nvidia 9600 GT
2 GB ram
120 GB HDD

Hm...Did you remember to set the game's graphic options? Sometimes if you put it high, it causes lag on the games. I have small lag on Rainbow Six:Vegas 2. If your playing a FPS game, try setting to medium or low. You may turn off "Shadow".
Problem lies on the amount of space,ram,and free space of your Video/Graphics card. The more you install games, the more space it takes up on RAM, your local disk (C: or G: or other), and your graphics card.
