Cannot game anymore

Hi there!

Problem

So, I cannot game anymore on my computer.
My games are on steam.
I figured id do a reformat after some days with this issue.
It started off with suddenly, that one of the games i play most, stopped working.. all of sudden it became unplayable, TERRIBLE lagg, and the sound got robotic when i had the game open. Unplayable..


what i did
Re-installed windows 7 and all of the drivers.
putting it on high performace on NVIDIA etc.


About my pc
(I am only 18, with no job so i cannot afford a great gaming computer.
But i downloaded team fortress 2 to test if the problem were fixed.
my pc has runned this game perfectly before.)

Model: ASUS K53SV NOTEBOOK
OS: windows 7 home premium (64 BIT)
prosessor: Intel(R) Core i5-2410M CPU @ 2.30GHz
memory: 6144 MB RAM
Screen adapters: Intel (R) HD graphics Family and NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M


EDIT: I HAVE DOWNLOADED PAYDAY2 TO CHECK IF MY OTHER GAMES HAVE THIS PROBLEM ASWELL. THEY DO.

    Sounds to me like your laptop is overheating and throttling. Try blowing the dust out with some compressed air. Becareful not to over-spin the fans, you will damage the bearings.

    Its not overheating. I cleaned the fan not long ago, and it worked perfectly fine gaming before and after that too. it just suddenly decided to not let me game anymore some days ago..
