Did you try performing your usual 6 month cycle early?
Hi everyone. Hopefully I can get some help here.
System: Dell Latitude D630 Laptop with OS XP service pack 3.
Graphics card: Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset
I recently recovered from a virus (bout 2-3 weeks) and I am having a bit of a problem.
Whenever I try to play a game (WoW for instance) it runs perfectly smooth and fine for about 6-10 minutes. After said time, the game gets choppy, FPS drop significantly and my internet goes out.
The only way to fix this is to restart my computer.
As for anything else, my computer browses completely fine and there is no noticable choppiness. It should also be noted, however, that this problem with the video games and internet cutting out also applies to streaming video.
Whenever I try to stream a Netflix video on a 23" monitor, my computer (it's a laptop Dell Latitude D630 docked to a station) reacts as if it were a video game and gets choppy, and internet goes out. This DOES NOT happen whenever I am just on my laptop UNDOCKED.
None of this happens to anyone else on my network -- just my computer.
Is this a network problem? Or is this a hardware problem?
Any and all help is appreciated. Thank you.
