I'm really frustrated because my PC is fairly fast and last night and this morning it's been acting really weird. First thing I noticed was that the sound was really choppy in Bioshock and it was lagging to the point where it was unplayable. I got out and went to Windows Media Player to look at some game videos I had recorded and it was lagging horribly and making weird sounds. I tried other games like World at War and Assassins Creed, the time it took for the game to actually appear from the time I clicked it was like a minute compared to 3 seconds or so before. When I finally get into the games, the load times are super long!
I had my CPU OC'd to 3.1GHz from 2.6 and it was running fine for a long time, so i resetted everything to default on the BIOS. Now I'm running everything at stock speeds and I still have the problem.
Someone please help me, any suggestions would be great.
