So this is a problem I got today like twice. So I was surfing on the internet and SUDDENLY the PC started to lag like crazy. Alot of programs crashed and the PC was soooo slow. It took like 10 mins to get the task manager up and then another 15 mins or more to shut down the PC. First I thought it was because of a new theme I downloaded for windows 7 so I deleted it and used my old theme again. After that I played crysis for about 5 mins and the same thing happend again. I had 20 fps playing crysis but then suddenly I got this massive lag again and my FPS dropped all the way down to a stable 1 fps, but this time I just exited crysis and my PC was back to normal. I really have NO idea what would cause this but could this perhaps be GPU issues. I mean when I closed down crysis my PC was back to normal but on the other hand the first time it happend I was not playing a game and nothing but rebooting the PC helped. Or maybe harddrive issues? I never experienced any problem like this before on my PC this is the first time. Please help!

all help will be super appreciated!!!!

aaah, this sounds like a problem iv had, not sure but its sounds like it.. if it is i have no idea how to fix it,,this happened to me with windows 7...it has stupid pausing issue i found on 2 of my pc's. its like it randomly starts loading and doesnt respond for a few minutes, i never found a fix so reverted back to xp. i bet if u used xp your pc would run amazing or even vista.

i think this should have been posted in the windows forum, i doubt its your graphics card. you would get help from more experienced windows 7 users.
