AMD Turion X2 RM-75 dropping fps randomly, why?

This is the problem: I play Need for speed: Most wanted. Runs nicely at 40+ fps, but randomly drops at <10 fps. I already downloaded Dual-Core Optimizer. This happens only with games, not for example Acer Arcade. Anyone know anymore about this?

  1. Sounds like possible over heating and downclocking to reduce temps. I've never had a laptop that was worth anything for playing games on due to heat issues.

    Re-install windows.
    Use SpeedFan to monitor temptures. Dont go above 80C!
    Scan for viruses and Malware: http://www.microsoft.com/Security_Essentials/
    Update Drivers
    All those will help!
  3. sounds like background programs getting in the way - mind you its a friggin laptop...
  4. Well... actually there isnt much bg processes, and the temperature stays around 60C. Now when I changed my virus software, the lags have been more rarely than before.
  5. The answer was Audiodg.exe. I disabled all audio enchanchements (not sure about spelling) and removed Acer eAudio from the bootup program list. Now it works fine, thanks for replies.
