Check the performance on "Task manager" and check that the CPU and ram isn't high utilization at idling or doing gaming, or browsing.
Then using "speed fan" check the temperatures aren't above 89 degrees (max temp)
Just trying to rule out some other possibilities first.
Hope this helps!

tested, when I open the game one of the cores doesnt do anything and other cpu core stops working 5 seconds, then working 5 seconds and stopping again. this makes program lag spikes and uncontrollable game also after some point, it stops react and it just freezing not turning back

I checked tempatures and it looks fine 35 degrees at normal and 50-60 when I enter the game

all this tests happens to other programs too..

what can I do?

Try this:
*Please note that this is NOT a long term fix, just a way to test a theory.
Open up your computer and look for a silver circular battery (CMOS battery) just to the side of the white PCI lanes and pull that out WHILST THE COMPUTER IS OFF.
And try booting then.
This will wipe the BIOS of all configurations as all data is stored on there and the data and time may be out of sync after doing this.
If successful, please come back to this thread as you cant leave it without the CMOS battery

a little screenshots from my cmos:

I have a integrated graphic card so I set it to internal
and if I change PCI Latency to lower number lags getting bigger so 248 is the highest number.. there is no differance for the issue anyway tried other settings:

issue still persist:

tried to disable other cpu vise versa, no dice still same..
so cmos loading to default settings not fixed it

maybe you can find more info here:

Hi there again,
Heres a few things that would cause "Cpu Core spikes"
1. Check for malware and virus using your antivirus software (make sure you do a full scan)
2. Insure that your computer isn't dusty as it may be overheating (Your temps look fine)
3. Insure that all your drivers are up to date, go onto windows update and install all updates.
4. If none of those are the issue then you may need a "Patch" since you have recently updated your BIOS (which shouldn't be the issue) you may need some windows updates to fix this issue.

well I'm fixed it, installed first bios version 3.0 and it works now looks like am2 cpu support not good for my pc because first I'm tried to install 3.4 version that didnt fix it so it is possibly cause of "am2 cpu support" thanks for your post anyway I can't tell how much I'am happy now

for other people, if you don't know what are you doing:
find a usb stick, turn it to fat32 system
install windows 98 dos version to your usb
download MSI bios version (as you like) and put it to usb drive
open up your cmos and configure to boot from usb
now you should have access to win98 dos console
write
"afud(numbers) A(your mother board number)AMS.(bios number)"
in my example it is like this:
Afud408 A7367AMS.300

and thats it...
