Basically, what has been happening is there is a drop in FPS in all of my PC games on the internet or not from a solid 60 fps down to twenty even lower, while previously they have been working quite beautifully actually staying very consistent and never having problems. (These games include, Assassins Creed Brotherhood, Deadspace 1 and 2, Portal 1 and 2, TF2, SC2, Tribes Ascend, GTA4, Spintercell Conviction, and others). It is a pretty consistent drop in FPS, not really acting up stationary, but move around and it slows down.

My Laptop is an ASUS 674sx laptop running Windows 7 64bit which I've had for about a year now.

My Specs:
Intel Core i7-2630QM CPU @ 2.00GHz
8gb RAM
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560M

Of course if you need more information just tell me.

Now, I've tried a lot of things to fix this.
-I have defragged my hard-drive, erased my cache of files (I do this often),
-freed up memory in general,
-scanned with Kaspersky multiple times with no avail.
-Checked my temperatures on my computer, which while running Assassins Creed Brotherhood are around 60C on avg. Stays rather stable
-Turned off my computer for 2 days straight, despite me turning it off every night (I do use it quite often sometimes upwards of 12hours).
-Updated my drivers for EVERYTHING
-I did do a system restore, after I did a few things learning that it wouldn't do much to my computer. I didn't have a far enough date, so I picked the latest date I had, but that might have been after the lag started, or before, but it didn't fix anything regardless.
-Cleaned the fan

Things I haven't tried
- Restore to default settings
- Checked Components for damage.

I'm pretty desperate to be honest, because it just isn't fun to play games with the amount of FPS drop I get. Please help, thank you!
