How can i enhance my graphics performance like before ?

Specs: Windows XP, Intel core i3 3.06/ 4 GB
what to do if my graphics performance is not as good as before. I have 4 GB's of ram and core i3 3.06 GHz with foxcon ITL-9B2 motherboard. But only 2.80 gb is usable. I used to get a great performance when first installed windows 7. but now i am having a poor frame rate and no texture acceleration in windows XP.Surprisngly the same ting happens in windows 7 now. plz notice that i don't have any external graphics card. How can i enhance my graphics performance like before ?

As you are running an i3 without an external graphics card, the graphics hardware is incorporated into the CPU. You can run an Intel diagnostic for the i3 which will root out any problems with the CPU

Take note of what it says about temperature, especially after the stress test.

The chances are though that you have too much junk taking up memory space.

You're not going to get high performance graphics out of the integrated GPU. As for your RAM showing only 2.8GB, you're either running a 32-bit OS or part of the RAM is being used by the GPU (or both). Make sure you have the latest graphics drivers & motherboard chipset drivers installed.

Those results are all OK. The temperature results a very good.

I would start by looking at what junk is loaded. Have a look in task manager and see if anything is taking up a lot of CPU time.

Run a good virus scan to root out any malware.

Check you startup and see what is starting at boot. I would guarantee that most of it is promotional junk that is not needed.

"Temperature = 77 degrees C below maximum"

Does that mean the temperature is 77C? If it does, the CPU is bordering on overheating & it could be throttling back to protect itself from frying. Check the temp reading in the BIOS. If the temp is high (over 40C at idle), you most likely have a problem with the heatsink installation.

Why did you dump Win7 & install XP? XP is a 32-bit OS & can't take full advantage of your 4GB RAM, not to mention it's 10 yrs old. Did you install all the latest drivers - motherboard chipset, graphics, audio, LAN, etc? The drivers on the XP disk are also 10 yrs old, so they're definitely not giving optimal performance. It's also possible that generic drivers were loaded which only offer limited functionality & poor performance.

I recommend going back to Win7.

this is an important question and could be the root cause of your problem, please answer, yes or no???
I'm betting that you did not install the chipset drivers.

Check your Mobo manufacturer's website for any updates. Updated drivers may be the problem, and then again, maybe not, but you can rule it out by installing the latest.

You're not answering the questions? Why are you running XP? You said for yourself: "I used to get a great performance when first installed windows 7". Go back to Win7 !

You'll find the latest drivers at the Foxconn website, but you'll need the proper board model number, ITL-9B2 ain't it.
