Laptop Display Freezing momentarily. Mouse too.

Display freezes for a second or a second and a half. Then, the display "catches up". Whether working with programs or online, the display will run fast to catch audio. Audio not affected as far as I can tell. Seems to be random and I can't relate it to any particular action. The display just stops, mouse will jump to where it would have gone, video stops. Like maybe it's clutch is slipping.

Go to Administrative Tools and do Disk Cleanup. Maybe the system is running out of space for the system cache.
