1. Make sure video drivers are up to date

2. Make sure sound drivers are up to date. Guessing you have Realtek

3. Make sure DirectX is up to date. Run Windows Update

5. Defrag the harddrive

Before you panic and start blaming hardware, always eliminate the possible software issues. Drivers not being up to date or conflicts with windows are the #1 cause of problems. If this is the first time you've heard the word driver and have never updated in 3 years, I'm betting that's the problem.
