|First things first, sorry if you guys get this question a lot. Today I decided to get a Playstation emulator so I could enjoy the good ole' games from the past, since my previous decided it was time to keel over. After downloading it, and running everything to allow it to work with my discs, I noticed that once I started up the emulator, that my computer would skip about every second. (Referring to any processes on the computer as well)|
I noticed that it effects mouse movement (causing it to freeze up for a brief moment), music, graphics, basically everything. I have had this problem before in the past, although I wasn't sure what caused it, so I would simply restart my computer and the problem is gone (only way to rid myself of it)
Looking around at some other similar forums, I didn't quite see any of them that fit my problem.
I'm not sure if it's my graphics card or my power supply or what, but my graphics card is a
ATI RADEON 9550, 128 MB AGP card.
So, on paper, I really shouldn't have a problem with that. So, could it really be my power supply? If so, why does my computer not have a problem with other like games (Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, for example)
I checked my cpu usage and it doesn't seem to be going insane either, (With that as the only process I wasn't getting over 20%)
If I had to explain the skipping from a different standpoint, it feels like you're on a computer that only runs on a secondly basis.
