Every so often no matter what task I am performing on my laptop it will freeze for a few moments then everything will be sped up for a second, it usually happens when i am watching videos or playing video games. I am not sure if shifting around causes the freeze or if it is software/hardware related. i beleve i have a lenovo g470. thanks for any help provided

Hi Quantom843 and welcome to the Community,
If it does this while it's being held, or being moved, it's probably the Active Protection system. It stops the hard drive if it detects movement. It thinks it's about to fall.
There should be an icon in the taskbar for the active protection. There's a slider that you can adjust sensitivity with. If there isn't an icon there, there should be one in Control Panel.

I didnt know about this "Active Protection system" is there a such thing linux side ?
But Lenovo g470 has some fan/temp issues search in other threads you're not alone
Let me suggest to monitor temperatures i noticed that it start around 30 and then goes to 40-45 on idle and sometimes it skyrock to 70C tell us what are the higher temp you get ... I suspect games are stressing your computer more than just reading the manual ...
but I may be other reasons ... so we will have to investigate
1st let's try to describe a reproductible test ie :
start temp monitor
play a movie
and report the min/current/max temps
