laptop performance in mass effect

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
i started playing mass effect and after about 20-30 minutes of gameplay the game seem to run by burst. not really skipping, just slowing down then going at the regular speed. but it's still playable. the sound is always fine. it's hard to explain. i tried tweaking everything i could in my lappy. i run the game on minimum settings (and i still believe i should be able to put some of them on medium) and resolution at 1440*900. i'm always plugged in when i play a game. drive v175.??

i know a laptop is not a gaming/performance rig, but is there something i can do about it?

i noticed that it does it with lego indiana jones and lego star wars too, so i'm betting it's the laptops fault. i uninstall almost everything not necessary (excepet my games) and have nothing unusual running in the background. i have AVG v8 running as usual but when i had a full tower i never had any trouble with that.

It sounds like it might be getting hot dose the fan speed up when the game slows down?cos the laptop will reduce cpu speed to cool down
