Hi my computer has been running slower than ever... when i open Bf2 the main menu lags. so does the music even, and when i try to load a map, that music lags also and it takes about 5 days (exaggeration)
and then the game shuts down when i press join game. I took it to the geek squad because i had already tried alot of things like defragging, deleting internet stuff and things like that. but they ran a "diagnostics" and didnt come up with anything wrong. and so when we got it back and it still sucked, we brought it back and they did an "advanced diagnostics" (for free yes!) but didnt find anything. So i pretty much dont know what to do next. I have an emachines T6420 with 1gb of RAM, 200gb hd, AMD 3400+, Thermaltake 430w PS, and the onboard video is nvidia 6100, i had a 6800GS but i had to get an RMA so im waiting for that, but the problem still occured when the card was working.
I have read some threads where people had a similar problem to mine, and got suggestions like reformatting, (i dont know how to do that) cooling issues, and just upgrading the system.
I would just like to add that the issue occured after playing bf2 for like 3-4 hours so i dont know if something overheated or not?
If upgrading is the answer, what part should i upgrade?
