For some months now, whenever playing games, ( Even old ones, like warcraft 3 ), my computer goes into a 30 sec - 1 minute lag period once every few minutes. The time the lag lasts and the time between the lags decrease as the requirements of the games i'm playing increase. Diablo 2 barely causes any trouble to me.
This started spontaneously, and no hardware changes have been made. I've posted on many other forums and asked for help around in any corner i could get in, but noone could pinpoint exactly what is causing this.
I reinstalled the system, and cleaned the entire hard drive. Even with a freshly installed Windows xp, the exact same things would happen, and so it must be something hardware related.
If anyone can tell me what exactly is causing this and what i can do to fix it i would be very happy.
Thanks in advance, and sorry for my english, as it's not my first language.
Here are the specs:
