i have an acer aspire 3620 and it is about 1 yr old... my laptop lags after several minutes while using it then it will go back to its normal speed..
I begun to be curious (bad spelling) because of red alert 2 and warcraft. I installed red alert 2 and warcraft in my laptop and it passed the system requirements (of course!) but several minutes after my laptop starts to lag...
it also happens even if i left it on in my computer table while i am playing my guitar..
i have been experiencing this problem about 4 time a day...
i have also tried to reformat it but my problems are still the same..
i also run a virus scan (nod32) but there is no sign of viruses...since i have only nod32 as my virus protector i installed kaspersky lab..but still there is no sign of virus..
thank you for those who are willing to share their knowledge and support!!
if the HD is reading a lot, u need more ram, i have the same model, and i have 2gb 600 and something Mhz and is running great, without the swap file. i gave away the 256mb old ram. Ask some friend to lend u some ram to test if is the ram problem.
