| All games suddenly lagging on new laptop|
I bought a new laptop few weeks ago, every game I tried was running smoothly at least on medium. But recently every single one, even old ones lag and stutter. I tried lowering settings (that helped not by much), tried updating drivers, used system restore point from day one (that solved the problem, but just for one hour), scanned my PC and fragmented hard drives (2), but nothing helped (not for long). I am using notebook cooler so overheating cant be the cause.
Weird thing with Battlefield Bad Company 2. that was the 1st thing I tried. It lags on SP now, units are really jumpy when they move and it is hard to aim, BUT on MP I have high ping (180 - 300) but units don't lag. In fact MP is just as smooth as in day one.
Then I noticed that frame rate doesn't drop in other games either, but units or cam is really jumpy. For example, in Napoleon Total War campaign map cam is lagging, but units, flags, rivers etc. don't. (on battle map both units and cam lag).
In all games I've tried it is not traditional lag, more like skipping, jumpy animation.
