  1. Usually when I first start playing a game I get a lot if freezes and dropped frames for a few minutes and then it works perfectly. I usually have to start the game over and then no problems.

    not that I have ever encountered. I think you have a fault. could be software or hardware. mostly likely drivers issue.

    What game are you trying to run? Such problems may occur because of memory or slow hard disk issues.
