Default Strange Periodic Lag

Yeah, whenever I play any game after a few minutes (if I'm lucky) the screen would go black for about a half second, then the game becomes near unplayable due to video lag, however, this lag will stop a few minutes after I close the program. I don't know if it's an overheating issue because I have Core Temp and it's at a consistent 58-60 Celsius.

Laptop: Dell Inspiron E1505
ATI Radeon X1300 Mobility
1 gigabyte of RAM
T2300 1.66GHz

Another problem is that my computer likes to hang on certain programs a lot and won't stop loading until I restart the computer, but I assume that's an issue with my memory.

It's probably the video/GPU that is overheating. Try this
