View Full Version : all my games on steam lag but my internet for web browsing is fine

i have been having this problem for about 3 weeks now. my computer is a alien ware so i can play any game fine. but when i go on steam i get mouse lag, and when i enter games i get the mouse lag again. When i enter server's it goes to my normal ping,in about 5 seconds it jumps 200-400 ping then goes right back down to normal for 1 second then right back up to high ping again. my game doesn't freeze when this happens but it will lag me shots. so i thought i was my internet but when i go web browsing it loads fast all the time, no mouse lag and it never freezes. i clean my pc,i turn her off, I got spy bot Search & Destroy and Microsoft security essentials. i use google chrome for the internet and i get no pop ups. so i really don't know what is going on with steam. so if anyone has any idea on what to do or what might work please help me out. thanks http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/default/guitar.gif
