My girlfriend just bought a hp desk top less then a year ago and just recently she keeps getting lag spikes when she is playing WOW, aion and Ragnarok. me and my room mate up dated her graphics drivers and that fixed the problem for a little bit. we started to run Speedfan and it says her GPU is 106c and her temp 1 is 50c all of her fans are working. her graphics card however is integrated with her mother board (so says my room mate) i took the cover off and sprayed some of the condensed air inside to blow the dust out but it didnt really help.

so i put this in your guys hands

can anyone help me?

Well there goes the warrenty.

I would suggest buying a good value graphics card and disabling the onboard.

Specificaly which HP? And which graphics card dose it have? If it is integrated than anything on the market will be better than it, might also need a bigger PSU if you get a new graphics card.

As it is less than 1 year old, it will in warranty. Show it to HP Service Centre. They can be of great help in this regard.

Hope my suggestions help you.

Thanks
