All my top shelf games are lagging
Jun 10, 2012, 4:41 AM
I've owned my gaming computer for almost a year, and I do tons of gaming on it. Recently, my more advanced games
(Battlefield 3, Deus Ex Human Revolution) are not running like they used to. Also I played these games before the
lagging came and they ran excellently, but I don't know what changed. I updated my graphics card, and scanned my
computer. I'm still looking around for other ways of fixing this problem. I would appreciate some help.
here are my specs:
Processor: AMD Athlon™ II X2 260 Dual-Core CPU
Cooling: Liquid CPU Cooling System [AMD]
Memory: 4 GB [2 GB X2] DDR3-1333 Memory Module
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 - 2GB - Single Card
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit

Have you tried system restore ? That might help if you set your restore point back to when it wasn't lagging ?
