Default Graphics card problem

Whenever I play a game i.e. Counterstrike/halflife the fan on my laptop becomes noisey and the process "System" starts using 23% cpu and 213k memory usuage. This causes gameplay to become laggy.

It's only started happening the past week or so, I've had no trouble with it over the past eight months. I have tried doing a system restore to a time when there wasn't a problem.

My system specs are
