I recently got StarCraft 2 and according to the "canitrun" site, my laptop can comfortably run SCII. However I feel that when I play the game the frame rates drop from 60-1 fps every few seconds. Not even if I change the resolution or the graphics settings does it change.

My laptop is an HP pavilion DV7 4150si
The specs are as follows:
6GB 1333 RAM
1 TB Harddrive
1 GB ATI RADEON 5650HD
i7 720qm (1.6ghz overclocked at 2.8ghz)
Windows 7 Basic


It also seems that the sound lags and will completely disintegrate in cut scenes and in-game. Anyone know the solution? Also, I have downloaded the latest catylyst control center, and when I play games I close all apps and put the display on windows aero, nothing helps.

I'm no expert, but maybe the temps might cause the stutters?

Try to monitor your laptop's temp, you might be experiencing heat issue which causes the stutter. It's not good to play on laptop, however you can compensate by adding cooling pad to help minimize heat build up.

Yeah ... its not good to play on a lappy .. some parts of the game require a lot of processor power which the lappy cant provide .... so just put up with it .. or you can try D3dOverrider that comes with Rivatuner .. it could help your sttutering .

The temps are about 70C after about 20 mins but they don't get anymore than that. I have a cooling pad to aid in that. Power setting = high performance
