So I was playing a game one day and all of a sudden it started lagging, the screen tore and textures weren't loading properly before it came to a complete stop. I reformatted and updated the drivers but the problem still persists.
Is there something wrong on the hardware side of things?
Yea, I made sure my laptop was well ventilated and not overheating so that doesnt seem to be the problem.
It happened yesterday and it has still persisted despite me reformatting and updating the drivers, in all honestly I've been playing a game that's still in its alpha stages so due to the NDA i can't disclose what it is but it's definitely not as consuming as BF3(which I managed to play on ultra). This is the first time that it has happened of all the times I was testing the game and I'm not sure what's affecting it, I ran dxdiag and nothing seemed abnormal...
