    Ok, So I Just Reformatted My Computer, Installed Direct X9c And Updated All My Drivers Includeing Windows Updates. I Run A HP Pavilion dv8000 with AMD CPU Processor With Ati Radeon 200m Series Graphics Card. Now Get This. I Get All the Drivers Done, And I Click On One Of My Games I Just Got Two Days Ago, And Wanted To Play. The Game Is Hunting Unlimited 2009. Ok, I Get In On Free Hunt Mode And Everythings Cool Until I Get This Horrible Studdering Lag In It About 20 Seconds After It Starts. Then I Tried Counter Strike, 1.6 And Source. Both Do It Also. Then I Tried Battlefield 1942, 2142, And 2 And All Do It. I Thought It Might Have Been My CPU Overclocked, So I Uninstalled My AMD Processor Driver, Which Didnt Help, Made It Worse. So I Reinstalled The AMD Driver.
    I Have Tried Several Things : Downgrading My DirectX to 8.1 = No Good
    Reinstalling DirectX 9c = No Good
    Reinstalling Windows XP [Home Edition SP2] ( I Reformatted Because I Had The Same Problem On The Last Computer = No Good
    Installing Updates = No Good
    If Anyone Could Help, And Actually FIX The Problem, That Would Be Splendid.

    Thanks, And Sorry If This Is The Wrong Section

    After re-formatting,de-fragmenting is always good,causes lag sometimes...ALL your games shouldn't be doing this..you may need to lower settings,but I dunno.....

    What drivers have you installed so far? Should be motherboard ( or chipset), graphics, and sound as a bare minimum plus anything over and above. If they are all installed, might be worth seeing if there are newer versions available. As you have an HP, did you get updates and drivers from them or from ms? Usually you have to go to the HP site, as normal updates are not always compatible with propriatory brands :)

    by the looks of the stats its a laptop, running an extra card is only going to give you a 25% increase in the best case anyway (in a normal computer of course you cant in a laptop) Laptops are not good for gaming... a desktop with less power would run them better...
    However is this a problem that has only just started, were games playing well before this problem? Or has this been a problem from the start?

    Could i ask if you are playing these games online whilst the problem occurs or is it just playing local on your PC?
