Hi Samuel,

 

Loud fans is not necessarily bad.  The fan on on NVIDIA GT 240 spins at high until Windows finishing loading.  Usually this is about the time when logon on screen shows up and then it goes fairly silent.

Hey dude,

    Try to buy new pc if your computer is old product because nowadays games need higher graphics and processor or memory.If you don't have any of those system requirements I'm sure you will encounter that problem lag.I have had that problems in past months,now I buy new PC which is very comfortable to play games especially online games.

Vista is a very resources consumer OS

 

Try to install Windows seven or XP!

 

or  try to add more ram memory

 

1,5 GB or more is a must nowadays

 

I hope this help you
