Ping, Lag, and Low Fps in CSS?

I have css and play it with a radeon 9000 video card. I play the first 5-10 minutes and then all of a sudden my ping increases dramatically, i start lagging badly, and my fps lower to 5-15 fps. I am not downloading/uploading or unpdating anything. My firewall is turned off and this still occurs. How can i fix this? i would really appreciate anybody's help.

thank you

my pc is:

Wow alot of unessesary information there,

That is a laptop right?

I think that is your main issue!

Outside of that RAM isnt great but sufficient for that game.

Processor again isn't great sufficient but not great.

I dont think there is a great deal you can do to imporve the performance even doubling the ram and upgrading the CPU will not increase it to any noticable effect.

I guess you could try different driver versions and see if any of those work better, but i think it will be the mobile graphics card holding you back more than anything.

should have replied to this one, but i didn't see it.

It's all about getting an equilibrium between performance and prettiness.

Funny that it goes for a while then slows down.

Like its been said in one your other 3 or so threads, it could be an overheating problem if it starts after being in game for a while. Whats the cooling system like on it?

Sounds like something is overheating, this shouldnt affect your pings mind unless it starts running so slow your computer cant handle the incoming data.

Have you tried taking the side off and giving it a clean out recently?
