FPS Lag Spkies

I am experiencing the rather frustrating problem of huge lag spikes dipping my FPS from 40 all the way to 1. It would seem this is random because it has happened in combat and out of combat, in low populated area and high, as well as indoors and out. I have the game on the lowest settings with shadows disabled even though my laptop should be able to easily run this game on med/high.

Core i5-460M 2.53 GHz
4Gb RAM
ATI Radeon™ HD 4670 1Gb

Initially i thought it was down to either drivers, heat or a background process but i have systematically checked all of these possibilities whilst still getting the lag spikes. Any one have any expert advice on offer? Cheers!

After some rooting around I've found that apparently the game doesn't utilize all of the cores, so if i give the game its own personal core the FPS should shoot up, in theory.
