I am not quite sure where I should put this but I will first start here. Before I get to the specs I just want to give you guys a synopsis of the problem. 1. I have built my own machine to begin with. 2. The main issue I have noticed is the games I play run incredibly poor. 3 Games used to run incredibly well on this computer. They didnt start out running poor. 4. As an example, Battlefield 3 used to run at 60-70 frames per second but now runs at 20-30 frames per second 5. This is the case for all games that I run (all used to run good but now they suffer from terrible frames) 6. Even moving from one internet explorer page to another seems to take longer to load (although this is not as noticeable 7. I do use nod 32 and have run scans with that without finding anything I tried to run that hardware scanner but it did not work A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment: # # EXCEPTION_UNCAUGHT_CXX_EXCEPTION (0xe06d7363) at pc=0x752dc41f, pid=8016, tid=13132 # # JRE version: 7.0_17-b02 # Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (23.7-b01 mixed mode, sharing windows-x86 ) # Problematic frame: # C [KERNELBASE.dll+0xc41f] RaiseException+0x58 # # Failed to write core dump.
