Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook ?

Possible Video problem with Acer Aspire 5102.

\015 Hey guysI have a Acer Aspire 5120WLMi with the integrated video card ATI Radeon Xpress 1100, 2GB RAM.It used to work prefectly but it started giving me a headache all of a sudden and I don't know what's wrong. I play Lineage II in my free time, and it used to run in this computer w/o any troubles, I would be able to play it @ high quality.Now it loads normally but it randomly lags or something, it runs perfectly for few minutes, then it runs SUPER SLOW for less than a minute, then runs perfectly again, and it keeps doing this over and over again. I tried playing with the video config and got nothing fixed, I reinstalled the drivers, updated drivers and even formatted and reinstalled everything but it just keeps happening. Does anyone has a clue of what could be happening?, I've been looking in different forums but I found nothing to help me.Thx in advance.Laptop info:Acer Aspire 5102WLMiAMD Turion 64 x2 - 1.6GHz, 512 L2 cacheATI Radeon Xpress 11002GB RAM DDR2Windows XP Media Center Edition SP2\015
