    Default Preformance Issues

    Hi guys,

    I have been having some issues with playing games lately. For some reason my frame rates have dropped beyond a non-playable level. I mostly have noticed this in BF 2142, I average about 10-15 fps. I play at 1600*1200 and all the other options are at high except for shadows and lighting at medium and AA at 0. Any tips on what I should do next would be great.

    System:
    AMD 4000+
    1Gb OCZ Platinum
    2x74Gb Raptors (RAID)
    2x7800GTX SLI

    Think back to when you began having these problems... had you just done something to your machine or added some program or utility that could have caused some sort of conflict?

    The only thing I can remember is when I accidentally change the PCI express clocking too high and couldn't get any video. I reset the CMOS and changed everything back to what it was. Unless I missed something, I have repeatedly checked this, everything checks out.

    I don't why your overclocking that machine of yours, its powerfull enough to run without a problem. In fact I'd turn off all overclocking untill you've rectified this problem

    Things to try

    Install lastest Video Card drivers, sometimes they go corrupt or get overwritten by one's from MS.

    Install the latest version of directX - you will have to d/l it, it can't be done via windowsupdate/microsoft update.

    you do have the obvious things installed like a virus scanner (www.avast.com - free) and windows defender installed - spyware can cause these kinds of problems

    bring up the task manager and see if there's anything running in the background that is chewing up your resources.

    Your HD isn't full is it?

    you can also get direct x 9.0c from a lot of game disks to save you the d-load, but you have dx9 right? you might get another gig of RAM to increase performance. What mobo etc do you have?

    It would be quiet but I have 1 noisy Vantek that blows like a turbine. A crappy generic case which with cammo paint and holes all over.

    Maybe you could get up to date BIOS or re-install your drivers till you find the solution. Also do a virus scan and defrag.
