Whole System Lag with a high spec PC????!
Hey Guys im new to this site so i will try and keep it Short as i Have no clue about anything to do with tech!
Basically, when i am Playing music for example, i get a horrible bit of system lag which affects anything open for around 4 seconds then it goes back to normal

Another thing is i play minecraft and: Being its nature of Low graphic's my
Alienware m15x with an I7 processor which cost me an arm and a leg with A Nvidia Gforce game card should surely play with no lag or interference. But no! i have to put up with low graphics and short rendering which still produces lag.
Another game i play is World of warcraft which when i first bought my laptop would run on Ultra Everything,
Now it is only playable decently on good settings, i cant blame this on My wifi because i have BT infinity which is the fastest wifi at the moment!



Any Help would be REALLY appreciated!:L try and keep it simple as i am a complete Noob with all the tech "In's and Out's"

Thank you!
Jack

Sounds like you don't spring clean your pc often. Is your entire OS slowing everywhere instead of just games? When did you buy your laptop?

I would suggest you spring clean your pc. Clear out junk files with ccleaner, clean and defrag your registry (highly dubious advice, I know. But it works for me ) and defrag your Hard Drive. Then, I would suggest you get rid of McAcrap Antivirus. Every version I tried (including the latest one) sucks. Get a free one like Avast Antivirus.

Try those and let us know how it goes

Basically good advice except we don't recommend using registry cleaners on this site.
