Windows 10: Sudden Lag in Games

    Sudden Lag in Games

    In various games, like World of Warcraft, there is often a sudden freezing, accompanied by the game's sound buzzing. This can get me killed in games like WoW and Swtor, and can make me lose a turn in card games, like Duelyst. The games this has happened in are World of Warcraft, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Duelyst, Pirate101, and Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft (only once though.) Is this a common issue? I've got an Intel 4600, and I don't think my computer's overheating, or I've got an outdated driver. Any help would be appreciated.

    Well, it didn't start as soon as I got the PC, but it started quite a while ago. I thought there was a problem with the specific games, so I contacted their developers and updated my drivers and everything, but it keeps happening. I have not tried a system restore. Would that be the best course of action? I don't have my files backed up, and it seems really complicated to do so.

    Edit: Also found that this happens with YouTube. When I exit Fullscreen, the video goes really slow for a few seconds, and it takes a bit to actually leave Fullscreen. It doesn't always happen, though.

    Edit 2: Just found out that you can just restore your apps. I did a system restore, and will say how things go once I re-download games and update my driver.

    sorry i haven't responded.. been a bit busy.. let me know how it goes.. if that restore doesn't work.. you might be better off doing a clean install and see how things go.

    Seems to me like the HDD is stalling, how old is the drive?

    I'd need more detailed information, like a link to a published Speccy log.

    I just posted this on the WoW forums, and I turns out that the problem is my computer overheating.
