    When outside of CS, do a ctrl+alt+del and see if there is a program running that is hogging system resources.

    My guess is maybe you have a virus or spyware that is hogging your system specs.

    Try running driver cleaner and reinstalling graphics card drivers. And I agree with xxfirebrandxx, or maybe even the ANTI virus or spyware is running, I have seen those kill systems too
