Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook ?

My Dell 1501 Laptop runs very poorly

\015 I recently have been having problems with my laptop when it comes to typing and loading anything. I first noticed my problem while typing, when I'm doing any typing the computer keeps up with my speed and then all of a sudden it will just stop and everything I typed shows up in a quick instance. Like the computer is constantly playing catch up, and I do play, well I did, play World of Warcraft until this problem started. Now while playing the game I can press left on my arrows to turn just a little bit and I'll do a full 360 degree spin if not longer, and I'll tap up to walk forward a little and run into a wall for 5 seconds if not longer and then computer then realizes I'm not pressing any buttons and my guy stops. So I didn't a complete reinstall of everything and I do not have any programs to download songs or anything, just Windows XP and World of Warcraft, plus ITunes which I installed from a CD, and I only have put music on here from CD's that I have bought, even at that my library consists of 2 CD"s so I know it's not a lack of memory. I also have a really crappy battery, so could that be causing my computer to lag as bad as it does? If you have any ideas for help that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.\015
