sounds like you need to re-install your drivers for the video card.

1.What Drivers are you using?
2.Is antivirus running in the background[if it is try snoozing it while you play]
3.Have you installed any windows updates recently?[If so it could be Service pack 3]
4.Have you Defragged the Hard drive where the games are installed?
5.Have you run any anti spyware cleaners recently[if not do so]
6.Have you tryed turning off Windows startup programs using "MSconfig"?
7.Does your computer have good airflow?[could be your GPU Throttling Down because of heat]Download "Speedfan" and check Temps.
8.Try putting your GPU clocks back to stock speed and see if it helps.
