    ATI Raedon Mobility HD 4570 Frameskip: Any ideas?

    ohaithar,

    So I have a slight problem with my computer, it annoys me to death and I can't play a single game without the screen freezing up, then unfreezing up every few seconds. I really don't understand why this happens, but it just sorta' came on last year. Before, I could run Minecraft, full graphics at a constant 120FPS. Now it goes from 120FPS to 0 for a few seconds, then back to 120. Its killing me, I haven't played a game in months...

    Anyway, the computer is clean, virus-free, it stays cool, there's no big issues besides the frameskip. And its with every game, and a lot of processes, not just one single one. Of course not all programs lag. Anything thats uses 30,000KB+ will frameskip. Also, I don't know if this will help, but my battery is broken, doesn't hold a charge. Would it help if I got a new battery? It might have started happening during my battery's break.

    My Specs are:
    CPU: Intel i7 Quad Core (8 Virtual Cores) 1.6GHz (Its underclocked by the factory, because the computer is known for overheating)
    GPU: ATI Raedon Mobility HD 4570
    RAM: 4GB
    HDD: 500GB
    OS: Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit
    Manufacturer/Make/Model: Dell Studio 1557 (I think its 2007-2010, not sure, and its a laptop)

    Anyway, thats about it. If you have any remedies, or if anyone else has been having this issue, tell me!

    Thanks to my Favorite Community,
    -Zapehy

    P.S. Please don't tell me to buy anything, or to buy a new computer, I have asked for help before and got to that point. So please, PLEASE DON'T TELL ME TO BUY ANYTHING! Thank you!

    It might be your graphics card. I would check if its dust free and reapply thermal paste.

    Read his post, next time.

    Battery shouldn't affect anything, and I doubt this is a hardware problem. Did you install/change any special software when this began happening (different drivers, perhaps a different AV etc.?)
