Having problems with your Dell Inspiron XPS M1710 Notebook ?

Distorted graphics and low frame rate with new 3d games

\015 I have played many games on my 1710 and never had any issues; however, almost all of the more graphical intense games i play (mostly newer 3d games) i get periodic but regular intervals of about 3fps and random flashes of graphic distortions. the problem will last for about 15-30 sec and then frames will return to normal and distortion will disappear. As i said before it occurs on regular intervals. this machine has never overheated to my knowledge. I plugged in an external monitor and i did not see the glitches but still experienced the fps drop to nothing for regular 15-30 sec intervals.\015\012\015\012games this has happened on:\015\012Vangard\015\012Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter\015\012Company of Heroes\015\012Two Worlds\015\012WoW\015\012\015\012This doesnt happen on many games, like:\015\012DAoC\015\012Ghost Recon (original)\015\012Fallout Tactics\015\012IL2 and expansions\015\012\015\012Thank you for your help.\015
