|hiya I've been trying to play guild wars on my machine for a lil bit, until the lag suddenly started, it went from 61+ FPS to 7- FPS ... which is unplayable... the stats of my box are.|
AMD Phenom 8550 Triple-Core 2.2GHz
500GB 7200rpm HDD
Nvidia 9100 Integrated Chip
now before anyone says to upgrade the card, or the card is the problem and blah blah blah.... the game im playing is GUILD WARS!!! not crysis... it runs on my P3 1GHz, 1 GB ram with a FX5500 (40ish FPS) so i think this box can do it juuuuust fine, i just cant figure out whats happening, what is the OS Changing to cripple the card to 7 FPS, plus the game played fine at 61 for the longest time so it def can handle the game. i also tried going from 1440 x 900 to 800 x 600 and lowered settings to Ugly (lowest) still 7FPS not even an improvement.
The computer model is an HP Pavilion a6702f
