Strange Lag and noise

December 3, 2011 at 21:21:58
Specs: Windows XP, Core 2 Duo / 3.3 GB
Whenever I play games my PC suddenly lagged and emit creaking noise (like bzzzzzzztttt....) and the game is like, stopped for 3-5 seconds. This usually happens every few minutes

Can you tell me what is this? Sorry if it's unclear. My guess is hardware error.. but who knows?

Please help.. It's too annoying

this sounds as hardware yes, it could be cpu or gpu, to check download speedfan and gpu-z and check the temps of ur graphics card and ur cpu.
also open the side panel then enter a game and look at ur cpu and graphics card and try to hear which one is causing this sound. post back results and temperatures

computers are a second home

Also more information like system specs, graphics, and game details (what game, have you played this one before without problems, etc.) would help....

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

The noise seems to be internal.. (Happens only on gaming platforms)
Whenever I don't play game, It still happens but without noise

"to check download speedfan and gpu-z and check the temps"
"Also more information like system specs, graphics, and game details (what game, have you played this one before without problems, etc.)"

Without this information we cannot help you further.

Download and install Speedfan and report back internal temperatures at idle and during or just after game play.
Download and install CPU-Z and report back actual CPU speed at idle and during games or while running other programs, especially note any changes during lags.
Report ALL of your system components, or if exactly stock as shipped from the factory, report make and model number of your system. Graphics, CPU information, amount and type of memory, as well as power supply specs are especially important due to this happening during game play.
Report CPU and memory usage at idle which will indicate if you have too much running in the background and need to shut things down.

Please do all of these things and report back on them or we will not be able to help you. If you have any questions, report back what you can and ask for more details on what you need help on.

First, you STILL have not included all specs.
Second, your CPU-Z reports you have an E8400 Core 2 Duo which runs at 333.3x9= 2999.7MHz=3.0GHz but you are running 266.7x9=2400MHz=2.4GHz so you are actually UNDERCLOCKED. You need to reset your BIOS, whether by reset defaults if factory rig, or manually if you prefer and you are running a custom rig. This could only be a PARTIAL answer since we do not know what graphics card you have, how it is running, if you have enough power to fully feed your graphics card, and many other possibilities. You need to disclose ALL needed information, or you will not receive a complete answer.... Last chance as far as I am concerned.

Graphic Card : ATI Radeon HD 2600 PRO

Report ALL of your system components, or if exactly stock as shipped from the factory, report make and model number of your system. Graphics, CPU information, amount and type of memory, as well as power supply specs are especially important due to this happening during game play.
about this, how to find out those informations?

If it is a manufactured system than the manufacturer's name is on the front and the model number should be on a sticker on the back as well as on the bill of sale.
If custom then you need to go by the bill of sale for the system or components or else you will have to open the system and read the make and model of each component.
