Solved Half Life 2 is running slow

August 1, 2011 at 15:59:48
Specs: Windows XP
Half Life 2 is running slow, it was working fine one minute then the next it was moving slow. All my other HL games (HL2ep2) and portal are running good though. Could I have changed my graphics somehow?

if it is HD 5830 it would be more than enough to play HL2 check with the graphics settings in the game, also make sure to see if ur graphics card is not overheating when playing HL2 and make sure all unwanted background processes are disabled

The Divx info is useless. We need to know the make/model of your video card, that's the most important thing.
