Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5672WLMi Notebook ?

3D Games cause CPU to Spike

\015 Okay, I consider myself a reasonably technology savvy person, but my Acer laptop has stumped me. I have an Acer Aspire 5672WLMI laptop that is a little over two years old. I am not the original owner, but I received it as a gift from the original owner in good working condition.Now, it did have some issues with the battery going out and I have had to pull the battery out and run it on AC power only to get the keyboard and touchpad to work. For a while we zipped along without any problems and then things started going south.The first major indication I had of a problem was when my Ubuntu 8.10 install got corrupted. I was running a dual boot of Windows XP Professional SP3 and Ubuntu 8.10 on my Acer. Initially I thought this was just due to a bad partitioning, so I backed up my data and whiped the system, performing a fresh install of Windows XP Pro by itself.Now, I have installed ever driver for the system, from the chipset drivers down, so as near as I can tell the system should run fine, but it continues to have issues.I will be doing web browsing, chatting, or other innocuous tasks and my CPU will suddenly spike and freeze my system for a few seconds before calming back down. Also, I used to be able to run World of Warcraft on this system like a dream and now when I try to run it I can get in, but my CPU usage spikes and stays spiked until I shut the program down, which I'm prompt to do because it is nigh unplayable with the constant "lag" which has nothing to do with my connection.What I am trying to figure out is what part of my system is failing and if I can replace it myself -- in the case of a hard drive -- or if I'm going to be forced to just by a whole new system. The computer is prone to overheating, which has caused problems in the past, but if my motherboard or CPU are going that may become more expensive than is reasonable to repair.If it helps anyone answer my question I did a system specs print out from Everest that I put into PasteBin:http://pastebin.com/m2bdec8afI really appreciate anyone who can assist me on this. I'm really at a loss.\015
