Recently, I started experienceing major slowdown issues while running my games, like WoW of FFXI on my laptop. Everything would start out fine for like maybe 10-15 minutes or so, and then my frame rates would drop through the roof, rendering the game virtually unplayable. My CPU never shutdown or anything, and the only stupid thing I've done recently is download xp sp2, which I've since removed. A friend at work has told me it could be an overheating issue, but Im not really sure what I would need to do to overcome this. The other fishy thing, suspecting ram problems, I ran memtest86 over night on my machine, and I woke up seven hours later and it never got through the first pass of tests. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.!
