Default GRR! Poor Performance!


I am very confused at the moment as I when I install new games on my laptop, i experience very VERY poor performance, lots of lag, very jumpy and extremely SLLLOOWW...

Even so, my system requirements exceed the recommended by a mile!

For example, when I play the Sims, i experience alot of lag and very slow loading times...

My Specs are...

2.8Ghz Celeron D Processor
64Mb ATi Radeon 7000
192Mb on-board RAM + 512Mb Kingston 200Pin RAM ( 704 in total )
40Gb hard-drive

I have only used about 10Gb of my hard-drive space, I havent got a compressed hard-drive, my paging file is set 512Mb initial AND maximum, some resource hogging services are disabled (such as the indexing service).

I use Disk-Keeper Lite and Defrag my hard-drive nearly every day and there is NO spyware!

I dont see anything physically (or mentally) wrong with my system and I am still unable to determine why I am experiencing such poor performance!

Any help would be VERY appriciated!! Thank you all!!
