I'm new to this forum and I have a problem with my gateway laptop I purchased from Amazon about a month ago.
Everytime I run something that uses gpu processing, it starts out fine. After 30 secs, I start to see it slowing down and lagging a bit. After a minute and 20 seconds, it starts to look like a slideshow and starts to have severe fps drop on anything that shows 3D artifacts.
Iv'e tested it on itunes visualizer. A few demanding 3D games. pcsx2 emulator.
They all come with the same speed and lag after a while. Now, im not a computer expert but, I do know some basics on how the gpu and cpu should perform under loads.
OS Name: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
System Name: ID47H07u
Processor: Intel Core i5 2450M (Now, the box says 2430M but my laptop shows 2450M)
Graphics: Intel HD3000 (My brother's Mac has this same sandybridge chip also but, his doesn't lag after long use)
Memory: 4GB DR3 Memory 500gb HDD
Now, Iv'e done research on throttling and tryed out applications that show GPU and CPU frequency. I haven't seen any spikes or signs of sudden downclocking due to heat. Temps usually reach arround 70 cels on gpu and 60 cels on cpu during max load. Right now im bummed that only my laptop has this problem.
Help would really be appreciated. Thank you all
(Iv'e restored my system two times already trying to figure out this problem and tryed possible updates on drivers)
