Experiencing almost random massive slowdowns
1 Attachment(s)

With an 8400M GS card, I'm experiencing extreme slowdowns quite often. I'm currently on the 256.35 driver, but this has happened with past drivers as well (at least from 180.x+).

When I start the laptop, at first a given game will run quite smoothly (recently testing with HoN). After a time, which seems random, the game will suddenly grind to an almost complete halt ~ 3fps. This can take hours, sometimes spanning exits from the game and its subsequent future start. Once the slowdown occurs, it stays like this indefinitely. Sometimes, but not always, a restart of X seems to fix the problem, and on rare occasions, even switching to a VT and then back to X seems to fix it, at least temporarily.
