My Computer Used To Run Games Just Fine.


When I reinstalled the games and ran them the same thing happened. i think the lower performance levels are to keep the card cooler and less energy demanding while in idle or during less intense cycles. I don't have Spec Ops installed anymore but Fallout 3 has taken a massive hit. If no improvement do a clean install, update all your drivers including bios. weblink

And also, my laptop is really loud nowadays. Like I mentioned I was getting 62.50 FPS in that game I was playing, it's been like that with Chrome open for the last 3 or so weeks. If so, is there a way around that? V-SYNC doesn't appear to be the problem either, I've tried disabling it but it didn't help. a fantastic read

Do not get this confused with memory. Thanks Jul 1, 2011 #1 ComputerGuy55 TS Maniac Posts: 380 +8 Does the FPS drop really low for awhile but then clear up, start to play good for awhile, Not Now!

Pressing Alt-Esc and opening task manager showed that the game was typically taking up about 60% of CPU, but could run as a high as 96%- same as when trying to Open the game in windowed mode, if it still lags, check the temperatures and the clock speed of the CPU while the game is lagging.

EDIT: Ah never mind... Ccleaner For Windows I actually wound up reformatting the whole computer, so that's not an issue. TIP #3: GET AND RUN A TRUSTED ANTI-VIRUS PROGRAM. I don't think it's the video card, though, because I ran Half-Life 2 fine just a couple months ago and Company of Heroes ran pretty well at first.

it very well could be that the games causing the angst aren't optimized or set for the 4 core cpu config. First I would have to suggest that you try to ensure VSYNC is off, both in the games and also forced off in either NVIDIA Control Panel or AMD Catalyst.

Let your system idle for 10 minutes or so and then capture an image of the real temp screen.

Is there a way to check these things? https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/539847/graphics-card-not-running-as-well-as-it-once-was-games-running-sluggish/ If you need it installed you can contact us for availability. Game Booster I'll still look at that software just to be safe. Nvidia If the BIOS is set to a certain CPU fan profile, the system might just be raising the CPU fan speed based on temps and/or load as well.

I have tried verifying integrity of cache files for all games. http://cgmguide.com/my-computer/my-computer-isn-t-well.php Edited by synergy513, 05 July 2014 - 02:13 PM. Now I'm noticing a clear dip. All Rights Reserved.

  • as mentioned above, so many times we see heat related issues which is commonly linked to dust build-up inside the PC cabinet.
  • I can do it by hand, though.
  • It's free.
  • But here is the good news.
  • Didn't mess with the fan speeds myself either, hell, I don't even know how.

Worth looking to see if there's any info on how to get at the innards because some laptops drag crap deep inside the casing and it can be a mission to CPU will get hot and will have to run at a lower speed to stop overheating. Run gpuz http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/ and do the same thing as above and give us the sensors tab results screen from gpuz so we can see what your gpu is doing. http://cgmguide.com/my-computer/help-my-computer-is.php WIndows SE doesn't ever say anything about any viruses.

But Speccy still does not show my card's performance above level 0.

Ziz0u 23 Jun 2014 13:06:02 10,923 posts Seen 54 seconds ago Registered 7 years ago Tried that, but it had been defragged recently. its a 9 Series card but a 100 model which is the lowest of that 9 Series. Could sudden power outages have affected the card in any way?

Well, it is true! Related Resources Recently got my first gaming PC (always used crappy laptops) what do you think, and for how long will it run games nicely? Thank you. 7 answers Last reply May 23, 2015 More about games run nicely digitaldocMay 21, 2015, 10:11 PM How did we know it was overheating before, and it is no this content This is where you will need some maintenance done.

CPU temps have been 50-60 degrees celsius. So the next question would be whether you are running some kind of third party software, such as overclocking or monitoring software, which might be messing with fan speeds. If the problem is only with Steam-games, even with antivirus/everything turned off, if it doesn't happen with GPU stress test (using o/c tools), you might need to contact Steam Support and If they have dust bunnies, clean them out with some canned air.
