After a year and a half of my laptop delivering stellar performance, I have suddenly started to experience heavy lag on games (Minecraft, Half-Life 2, Portal, Amnesia). I have always been able to play them on the highest graphics settings with no problems, and now there's lots of lag and sometimes the sound cuts out for a while.
I sometimes play graphics-intensive games on the Windows Boot Camp partition, and there I experience no lag. So it looks like the GPU itself is fine.
Any idea of what I can do?
