Mobilty 7500 64MB issues
Ive been trolling the forums here a bit in a vain attempt to find some way to fix this problem, but I havnt had any luck. First off, system info:
Alienware Area-51m Laptop
Ati Mobility Radeon 7500 64MB
Now, given the age of this laptop (approaching 3 years) along with heavy use and some neglection, I'm not expecting to play top-end games at full details. But when a game like Dungeon Seige running at the lowest video settings goes from 60 FPS to 3-7 FPS after about 5 minutes of gameplay, I get a little ticked off. I know this laptop is capable of playing games, just it seems to give up after 5 minutes, sometimes less.
I have just done a complete reinstall of Windows XP, got all the updates, threw on the 6.1 Cat drivers and DirectX 9.0c. After all that, I'm still having this issue with the FPS dropping way low after a few minutes. I am thinking that the card runs out of memory for textures, then has to continuously load them from the hard drive/CD-Rom?
I know its not a virus, I have closed as many processes as possible, run games at the lowest possible video quality settings, and yet any game that requires 3D hardware acceleration just drops in FPS. Even World of Warcraft was running at 40 FPS before it dropped after 3 minutes of game play.
So, any ideas? Thanks for any help.

Try to check the cpu/gpu/ram clock speeds before and after.
Maybe something forcing it to powersave mode.
