Lags at games each 60sec

At the moment im using Win7 64bit,
I used vista, but dualbooted it with win7

Every 60 seconds a lag spike starts, which lasts for 30-60
seconds,
Then after the spike is gone, it's normal for 60 seconds again,
and then it all starts over.

Note: I'm directly plugged into router.

Note II : Wireless card may be on, and screwing
things up, but not sure about that, i'm using intel(R) WiFi Link 5100 AGN

Please help me fix this lag :sweat:

  1. Posting your full system specs would be useful for any of us to give you an accurate cause / cure.

    Regardless of being connected directly to a router, it could very well be your internet connection with a high ping result that is causing you to lag.

    However :-

    fragmented HDD's
    outdated drivers
    insufficient RAM (free)
    Heat / throttling

    could all be causes - plus several others.

    I would check using an online speed test (google - adsl speed test) and see wht results you get. I would run this several times and take an average of the Upload / download and also PING.
  2. Ok, done that.

  3. Bump.

    i really need help on this :/

    EDIT:
    i found out it only happens in first person games, games like startcraft don't lag at all.
    could also be because those games take more power to run
  4. Bump.

    sorry for bumping but if no one helps me, i got no choice then doing this a few times..
  5. you said it happens during offline games. That means it's not network related. two most probable problems are either a program eating cpu every so often or a program reading your hd every so often.

    anti virus comes to mind
  6. well.. its not my anti virus for sure, since i got none yet ;)
    any other ideas? all ideas are welcome ^^
