Recently, without warning, my computer has been hit with unbelievable amounts of lag.

I would be running programs and games at 60 FPS then suddenly my computer will slow down to 5 FPS and then spike up and then down repeatedly. I have done a virus scan (with AVG) and a spyware scan (with Spybot S&D) both of which have come up blank.

I'm not sure what exactly is causing this problem but if anyone could shed some light it would be appreciated.

My specs are:

Windows XP: Home Edition
Service Pack 2

2.00 GB of RAM
CPU 2.80GHz

Graphics Card: Radeon X300/X550/X1050 Series

Any advice is to help fixing my FPS problem will be appreciated.
Thanks.

EDIT: I will try to grab my temperature and volt usage at my next Lag spike

Hi Uglypants and welcome to TSF

Your temperature looks a little hot to me. If you are using a desktop, you might open it up and use some canned air to blow it out. If you decide to do this, be sure to touch the bare metal case before touching anything inside the PC. You can get the canned air at any electronics store, just tell them what you want to do. Be sure to blow out the heat sink over the CPU and through the powersupply.

Here is a link to an article that will suggest lots of things to speed up your PC:

Hope this helps
