I have the MOST fustrating problem on my hands.
I posted here before (http://www.techist.com/showthread.php?threadid=5134
) about this problem.
The problem is that some games (Counter-Strike, Jazz Jackrabbit) and a lot more are running slower than normal speed. Sometimes they are very slow almost like half-speed and sometimes nearly normal speed but still quite a bit slower.
Very fustrating some help would be greatly appreciated.
Some extra information:
I have a Athlon 1800 XP running at 1700 XP
256 DDR RAM
40 Gig Hard drive
Geforce4 MX 440 64DDR vid out (chaintech)
Now.. I had integrated sound and after much research into this I thought it was something to do with the sound. I still have a hunch it is. Anyway, After i got it working, I got a new sound card! Everything was working fine. I *think* it was when I installed DIRECTX 9, that it started giving me these problems again.
The sound card is a CMI8738
I have tried multiple drivers for this card and for my video card.
I cant understand what the problem is, perhaps directx?
PLEASE give me some help!
Note: its not my computer specs not being able to run the games fast, its not my connection or anything like that... playing online CounterStrike, everone moves normal speed, they see me move slow
