Games run Slowly

Hi every Body.
I got a problem with my PC, and I think its about my VGA.
the problem is;
when playing games (PES 2010, EURO 2008, Crysis ), first everything is OK, then suddenly it run smoothly and too slow, after a moment its run quickly, exactly too quickly.and after that, again the problem occurs. first too slow then so fast. the point is that I've bought my VGA about 5 month ago and up to now there was no problem. and something else , sometime I hear some sound like Beep, when I working, but thats not the system, because I've removed the Speaker from my main board.

my System info:
CPU: Intel Pent 4 3.08Ghz
Ram: 2X 1GB DDR2(800)
Main B: Gigabyte
VGA: GIGABYTE NVIDIA Ge-force 9400 GT

someone told me that the problem is about my Rams , and I've checked them, but there was no problem.
would u please help me?!!

  1. No Idea?!!
  2. CPU. Its to slow to handle the games your talking about. More so if its the 3.06GHz 533MHz FSB P4. Quite frankly, you need an entire computer upgrade. Start saving your money. P4 + 2GBs ram + 9400GT = bad gaming computer.
  3. thx friend. but I said that, before it, I didn't have such problem, every thing was good. its about 5-6days that problem accrues.
  4. A virus or scumware program chewing up CPU cycles?
  5. u mean Scan and Fix system with an Anti Virus ,after that reinstalling the windows will solve the problem?

    Turn off ur antivirus software while ur playing and install gamebooster . here is the link

    try to overclock your cpu. and if your using xp delete all shedule task from control panel , defregment your drive , clean your system registry. i hope there will be a change if you try this .

    actually whole point is you cpu is not powerful enough to run games like crysis .
  7. Either the cpu or (most likely) the gpu is overheating. Check if the fans are still working and if the heatsink of the cpu and gpu still is in contact.

    I think your right. because while I'm working with my computer, some time I hear some beep sound, although I've Disconnect my Main board Speaker. and my VGA temp is about 50 C. but how should I know that my CPU fan works well or not(its connected).
  10. which os your using currently. if its windows 7 switch to xp 32 bit. you can overclock your cpu from bios. just keep hitting del key when you system starts. but its not recommended thing you know ..
  11. More so when you have a P4. Use speedfan to monitor CPU temps. See what your getting. I still stand by getting the entire system upgrade. No point in throwing money at this system.
  12. Even my happiness used to get screwed when i had p3 . tips i gave may help you . if you need tips & tricks more dont mind asking . advice is free in this world.

    (just a guess), does your game work slow only when there is enough shooting, chopper attack , or many visual effect at the same time . actually all this will need better cpu power too just good graphics card isnt enough.

    I did try it. and by using Easy Tune increased my CPU overclock. many thx help.
  14. well exactly when I installed the SpeedFan, and find that the problem must be from my CPU (over heating) . and by using Easy tune, I increased my CPU Overclock, It's gonna work better. thx a lot.
  15. to 4745454b: I do agree with u. my CPU isn't as good as enough. Hope to by A new one.

    Uhm, no it won't. If the CPU is overheating then overclocking will make it worse, not better.
  18. did you find any change while running the game this time?

    yes. actually It runs better than before. but I think I need to get a new CPU or maybe my CPU Fan doesn't work well. anyway, thanks.

    yep. it's gonna to get burn. but I opened both of the case covers. and put it next to the window. the Core Temp is about 46. I think not too hot!
  21. Here is another tip. right click on my computer >advance>click on settings>visual effect now select adjust for best performance.

    and open task manager > click on view > update speed it will be normal select high .

    i know this is piracy but i hope microsoft wont mind much if you had purchased xp from them before.
    keep this as multi boot option . this stuff was mainly edited for gaming. i dont think there is anything wrong with your cpu or its fan . its just global warming effect and much use of your cpu. and just turn off firewall & automatic updates when you use this.
  23. ok. I'll try it. and will tell u the results.
  24. how can I find that does my CPU Fan works well or not? any software for tests?
  25. download and install everest ultimate edition. this software is good. click on sensor after you run this software . it will show cooling fan speed .
  26. how much it shows ?
  27. ok. I'll check it.
  28. CPU FAN : 2220 RPM. is it ok? I mean is it the normal Speed?
  29. yup , its normal speed for you . for me its 2394 but i have core2duo . in your old post you said Core Temp is about 46 , thats perfectly normal. your p4 is just old there is nothing wrong with it.
  30. Yes....
  31. so. these are last breath of my dear CPU?!!! anyway, which CPU do u suggest for me, for playing Game such as Crysis? and I have to buy a new main-board cauz this on only works with current CPU model. :(
  32. i feel you should go for core i5-750S . 4 core 4 threads. i dint mention i7 because prices are too high right now. you see games like just cause 2 demand vista or windows 7 . we all know vista is balls so windows 7 is the only choice right now . Anyway in near future better games than crysis are gonna come and its obvious that many games will demand direct x10 or 11.
    if you go for core2duo or dual-core processor they are best with windows xp but with windows 7 its just ok ( but you cant feel the power).
  33. should I change my Power too.?
  34. http://educations.newegg.com/tool/psucalc/index.html .
    here check yourself. whats your current psu
  35. its not one of your thread but if your going for core 2 duo under 3 gb ram . dual boot xp and windows 7 home premium . switch to xp for games rest all windows 7 is always there. same thing i have done. but note windows xp -32 supports only 2cpus .

    Huh? XP home supports one socket, but as many cores as you can get in there. XP pro supports more then one, and as many as you can put in there.
  37. please take a look at this ,

  38. Ok, so whats a processor? (hint, read my answer.)
  39. With core 2duo processor xp is good.
    with quadcore and above windows 7 will do just fine.
    in order to run xp on latest system some changes should be made in bios settings , my friend was facing that prob before .
    xp is old man! people should understand that.
    anyway you asked whats a processor sry for my bad english but cpu is a processor rite.
  40. Then whats a CPU? Nothing in your link said I was wrong.

    Or based off your new post, I'll fix it.

    XP will run quads just fine. Even home.
