Check to see that all the updates drivers are installed including directx and motherboard chipset and bios update. Make sure there are no programs running in the background when you run benchmark softwares. Close any anti viurs, file sharing program, media player taskbar agents and whatever else you can close. Also, make sure there are no spyware and viruses.
