|OK. Have you added any programs recently that run in the background? Take a look in "Task Manager > Startup tab" and see if there is anything listed there which doesn't need to run all the time. If so Disable it. Sometimes a program can be unnecessary or perhaps started instead from a shortcut when required.|
Also in Task Manager see if there is any specific item in Processes which is using a lot of CPU or Memory (RAM).
If this issue is with online games, are there any browser add-ons that you can disable?
If you should happen to have more than one virus checker running in real time uninstall one of them (they can fight and waste resources).
Go to "Device Manager > Display adapter" and expand it out to show the adapter that you are using. Right click it and select "Update Driver Software" - if it finds a later version install it.
In the meantime maybe someone else will come along with further ideas.
Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
