Random lag in Windows 7... Tags: PC gaming Windows 7 Games Video Games Last response: March 15, 2013 5:47 AM in Video Games Share killshift October 30, 2012 6:56:46 AM Good day guys, this is my first thread i will post here in the forums... and please read carefully a few days ago , i recently installed an 32-bit Windows 7 in a used 160 GB HDD i feel it was way faster and better than on my old 80 GB one with a 32 bit Windows XP SP3 the day after it i installed programs (antivirus , drivers , etc.) first then finally games after them most of the games i installed were more or less 1 GB in size... (GTA 3 , VC and SA ; NBA Live 2005 ; F1 Challenge 99-02 ; CS:S and other FPS games. whilst some owned by popcap games) i tested them if they were okay then it was on the first try. then later it was not... it ran smoothly for more than 60 FPS (i think) then after 5-10 seconds , it suddenly lags like 30 FPS for also at least 5 seconds , goes back fine after the same how often it lags then vice versa. in Counter-Strike Source , it didn't go beyond 60 FPS. i would be greatly appreciated if someone would help me about this problem...
