    I play CSS, Americas Army, and Call of duty 4 on my laptop. I usually run cod4 and css at 125 frames while I play and America's Army is capped at 85. Every 5 minutes or so of gameplay my framrate drops to about 20-30 for about 10-20 seconds. This causes some significant problems during match play.I have attached my dxdiag to this post.

    I shut down my laptop every night, I have it in an air conditioned room and it sits on a laptop cooler. I unplugged my external harddrive and updated all of my drivers 2 days ago. I have also turned all of the graphics to low and I cannot stop these frame drops.

    Your problem is not your laptop, but it your WIFI network.... Recently, many people have complained of unusually slow internet and often get the "broadband link error" message. You may want to look into upgrading your internet service provider. Also, as the games become more popular and more features are added to them, the main servers for the games become overloaded..

    Hope this helps,

    Sean

    Hmmmmm. In that case, it is probably your GSU being dusty. Take it to Best Buy and they should clean it for you. If that doesn't work, then it may be the 2nd solution, or rather, problem that is causing this slow performance

    Also, you may want to read this thread on another forum, it seems to have more knowledge readily available as to increasing your ping rate and possibly reducing you lag spikes, which is what the framerate drops are called////
