What was that? "Go try the Steam forums", you say? Oh, I did. The day after I posted, my thread was pushed back to page 6 and it had about 10 views. This isn't exactly the place to go if you want your threads pushed into nowhere in a matter of hours, so after my TF2 lag reached a whole new level today, I figured I should ask here. Here is the problem: I get lots of lag all the time, in the form of low FPS. Sometimes as bad as, ohh, 5 FPS, I guess? Today, my game even crashed due to too much lag. While I was in the spawn room. The lag can start and end at any time - not only when there's a lot of action. This results in me moving and aiming extremely slowly as well, and I am forced to stand still and look at a wall until it cools down. Oh yeah, and it happens about every minute or so. This would be the part where I post my specs, but I...have no idea what they are. Ahem. I don't think there's any point either, really, but let me tell you this: I have a laptop (Acer Aspire 7520G, I think it's called) that is able to run modern games just fine, and it has done that job perfectly, until the lag problems started about a month or two ago. My Internet connection? Solid. It doesn't seem to be related to the problem either, as my ping remains the same when I have lag as when I don't (which usually is between 20-60 on the servers I frequent). And, yes, obviously I have made sure that I have enough free space. I'm asking this kinda out of desperation, as I don't know if there are any people here who actually know how to help me. All help is apprecitated, though, even the tiniest suggestion.
