Why does my Alienware laptop lag for a few seconds when I am playing games?

by on June 17, 2013

Q: i have an alienware mx14 laptop and i find myself lagging on any game i play. Its smooth but there are points for about 5 seconds of continuous frame rate lag. It will fluctuate from low to very high and i have no idea why. Please help me figure out what is wrong.

    1. Make sure you’re running the latest versions of your video card’s drivers.

    2. Review the other software you have running in the background or system tray. Disable or remove software that runs in the background that you don’t use at all.
