I have pentium 4 3.4 GHZ
radeon 9800 256mb
1024 mb ram
and im running average 10 fps in counter strike. its driving me insane. Dell replaced my video card(which has been giving me problems for a longgg time) and that didnt fix it. it never did that before until my video card crashed. what do you think the problem is?
I still had a very low fps rate when the graphics were set to the lowest. i changed the settings for my video card from quality to preformance and it still didnt work. i forgot to mention they replaced my motherboard, system board, and lcd display. they replaced some other things but i dont know what they were. they replaced my video card with the same kind of card. i sent it in for repair i believe they cleaned it for me. they thing is, none of my games lagged from low fps rate before my video card crashed. even CSI game has a low fps rate! call of duty 2, battlefield 2142 NEVER lagged but now it does. oblivion was absolutly smooth but now its terrible. i cant even play it anymore its so bad. and warhammer too. i used to play it all the time with no trouble what so ever.
I put my resolution down to 800 by 600 but that didnt help.
i still have warranty so im ordering a new laptop.
Location: HickTown, California (hesperia), and West Hollywood
no graphics card slot? pssht, bull ****, maybe no agp, but if it got a pci slot then you got a graphics slot. but hey, that pc should handle those just great. do ctrl+alt+del and take off any unnesecarry items, then go start/run/msconfig and go to the startup tab and take off anything you dont need. if you have the time and a standard xp disk, (not the one that came with the pc) reinstall and you will get some preformance back, because oem pc's load them with crap you dont need. plus with a bare xp install it will show the real preformance of the pc, when its not bogged down with the oem's crap. heres a pic that will show ya what is good to leave on there, and should leave on there.
i have an ati radeon 9800 256mb
yeah well mine was already updated
it still had a low fps rate.
i downloaded the 3dmark03 video test program.
i got a pretty bad score.
my cpu got a badddd score.
but they replaced my motherboard so wouldnt they have replaced my cpu??
