Hey, im new to this community, but i know a little about computers . My problem is that recently my computer has started to frame skip in games. I have no idea why or how this has started, and i would hope that u guys here at Techspot could help me out. The 2 games i have been playing recently are Warcraft 3 TFT, and Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004. The frame skipping started about 5 days ago. The games ran extremly well before that. I have tried to defragment both C and D Hard-drives, but it didnt help. I have also checked for any problems in the Drives, but they seem to be fine. I think the frame skip is because i have dust in my computer ( laptop ), but i do not wish to open up the case, since i am not very good at that stuff. My specs are: 1.5 Ghz Intel Pentium M Processor ( It is the same as 2.6 ghz Intel Pentium 4 ) 512 MB Ram Ati Mobility Radeon 9700 128 MB. Hope that u can help me out with this problem.
