  1. See if running CCleaner and doing the Clean and Registry portions both helps. It could be registry errors. https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner
    Also, check and see if you have a lot of stuff running in the background that you can live without. Check your Tray. Check the System Configuration/Start Up tab and see how many boxes are checked. (more than 8-10?) Uncheck any you are familiar with that you can do without.

    Have you changed gfx cards recently and not cleaned out the old driver first? You can uninstall the current driver, run Driver Sweeper from safe mode, and have it remove any remnants of Nvidia, AMD, ATI graphic drivers it finds. Then re-boot and install the latest driver for your card and OS. http://www.techspot.com/downloads/4266-driver-sweeper.html

    You don't have a phsyx card though.
    Phsyx is a feature of Nvidia cards only.

    I am aware it was just to make it run
  5. Wait. You have two cards installed? Two drivers installed, one from Nvidia and one from AMD?
  6. have you tried downloading the Optifine mod? it should allow you to use more of your CPUs cores.
    What model of HDD do you have? if you have a slow hdd, that could affect it somewhat while it loads.

    this is a good point my hdd with my os on is a bit broke because i was having problem previously that made my pc switch off all the time and it kind of messed up my hdd so i got a new one for my games. but i installed it on to that as well to see it is worked but it didn't sooo yeah.

    Oh, OK. Yeah I have that problem when I use an AMD card and run Metro 2033. It needs to see a physX driver for some reason... even with an AMD card I usually just install 3DMark Vantage for use with my benchmarking, and all is well because it provides the PhysX driver.
