The problem I have is different than any other one I've had in the past. I play just a few free MMO's here and there, like Ragnarok and Allods Online. Neither are graphical wonders, and my computer has never had a problem with running them until last night. I was playing Allods Online, just created my character, went through all the menus and got to the game. I looked around, moved, jumped, and began talking to my first NPC. Right after that it went very laggy. I thought it just might be the servers, but I couldn't move my mouse, couldn't close the game, couldn't even move my character. I Ctrl+Alt+Delete it to get it to close out. I deleted the game afterwards and thought nothing of it until today when I logged on Ragnarok. Same thing; I logged on my character and then I see little green lines going across the screen. I can't see my character, but the screen moves with him though and everyone else looks okay. There is also no HUD in either game when this happened. I am having no problems anywhere else. And every time I log in this happens. Anyone else ever had this happen? Thanks in advance!

Note that I don't play anything outta the range of this old machine, and Ragnarok has always run smooth as butter, lol.
