Just yesterday I purchased a Toshiba P105-3997 gaming laptop with Windows Vista and I'm getting horrible frame spikes. For a gaming laptop I find it very difficult to game on. The problem here is that whenever I run any type of game (Halo PC, Battlefield 2, even 3dmark) I get wonderful performance except for every 5 seconds my frames per second drop to sub 10 levels. For example, I play Halo. With all high settings at native res I get 100 frames per second. Not, every 5 or so seconds my frames drop to the 20-10 range and then go back up. This symptom is similar to other programs, including Vista's built in chess game! This is rediculous! It has a GeForce Go 7900 GS for god sakes, it should be able to handle these things like nothing. Anyone have any suggestions? If I cant get this fixed I'll have to return my laptop, unfortunately, and go with a more expensive XPS or so .
