Tags: CPUs Turion AMD FPS Last response: December 27, 2009 4:12 PM in CPUs Share Prompter December 16, 2009 11:31:47 AM This is the problem: I play Need for speed: Most wanted. Runs nicely at 40+ fps, but randomly drops at <10 fps. I already downloaded Dual-Core Optimizer. This happens only with games, not for example Acer Arcade. Anyone know anymore about this?

I've never had a laptop that was worth anything for playing games on due to heat issues. gamepro127 December 16, 2009 4:01:47 PM +1 loneninja Re-install windows. Use SpeedFan to monitor temptures.

Prompter December 17, 2009 4:21:14 PM Well... actually there isnt much bg processes, and the temperature stays around 60C. Now when I changed my virus software, the lags have been more rarely than before. Prompter December 27, 2009 4:12:07 PM The answer was Audiodg.exe. I disabled all audio enchanchements (not sure about spelling) and removed Acer eAudio from the bootup program list. Now it works fine, thanks for replies. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
