I have a question and i cant seem find any related issues posted on google or on any other forums. So, i decided to try and post here and see if anyone can help me. There are the specs. I can also post Dxdiag. Sorry for not posting originally i was just wondering if anyone has heard/seen of a laptop charger doing such a thing. System Specs: ------------------------------- Video card: ATI x1270 OS Name Microsoft® Windows Vista™ Home Premium Version 6.0.6000 Build 6000 Other OS Description Not Available OS Manufacturer Microsoft Corporation System Manufacturer Dell Inc. System Model Inspiron 1521 System Type X86-based PC Processor AMD Turion(tm) 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-58, 1900 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 2 Logical Processor(s) BIOS Version/Date Dell Inc. A04, 10/30/2007 SMBIOS Version 2.4 Windows Directory C:\Windows System Directory C:\Windows\system32 Boot Device \Device\HarddiskVolume3 Locale United States Hardware Abstraction Layer Version = "6.0.6000.16407" Total Physical Memory 1,917.39 MB Available Physical Memory 1.07 GB Total Virtual Memory 3.96 GB Available Virtual Memory 3.10 GB Page File Space 2.17 GB Page File C:\pagefile.sys is that enough info? Bout two days i started receiving FPS drops and stuttering, well at first i tried everything. Then i noticed it in other games...and then i noticed in just watching videos via dvd-rom or just streaming video off a site like abc.com. I then noticed it ONLY happens when my laptop charger is plugged into the wall, when my laptop is just on the battery it doesnt happen at all....Has any ever heard of such a thing? Our power in our apartment did surge about 3 times before i could unplug the computer, maybe it damaged something inside the computer, but if it was the computer it self wouldn't it LAG all the time not just when the AC Charger is hooked up? SO, im guessing maybe my laptop charger is damaged, or if there is a software conflict from when my charger is being plugged in. However, i do not see that being the problem considering i haven't changed any settings. Any help is appreciated, i just wanna know if i should in fact try a new charger, or if theres some tweaks or settings i need to check. Thanks in advanced.
