I don't know if it's my graphic's problem :(

ince last week, my computer cannot run any games smoothly. I tried running MW3 and Project Blackout. For Mw3, the graphics are horrible and loading takes forever. For Project Blackout (which isn't a demanding game), I got like 12 fps. Even after running only Project Blackout on a Samsung SSD, I got the same results.


Pc Specs:

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate/ 64-bit
Motherboard: Gigabyte M68MT-S2
Processor: AMD FX-4100 3.6 ghz
Memory: 8192 MB RAM
DirectX 11
AMD Radeon HD 7850
Samsung 840 120GB SSD
Antec 1200 psu


I unplugged my original HDD and only downloaded Project Blackout on the SDD, along with a fresh install of Win 7. I uninstalled previous AMD card's drivers and installed the 7850 drivers from given disc. Is it my graphics? :(!


Thank you!

More about graphic problem
  1. If its a fresh install of win7 why were you uninstalling previous amd drivers?
  2. Sorry for the confusion there. I meant re installing drivers.
  3. try clearing or resetting the configuration data in the pci section of your bios
  4. When I tried resetting, I'm stuck on the IRQ part. It gives me the options of auto, and the rest are numbers. =//
  5. Don't mess with your IRQ's doing so would be bad. You can reset your BIOS to fix it but I think you are best off not touching those settings.


    A couple things I would like to ask.

    Firstly: You have your monitor cable connected to your and not to a onboard video device.
    Secondly: Do you have the most up to date drivers.
    Thirdly: IN your bios do you have your primary display adapter set to PCI express.
  6. 1: my monitors are connected directly to the 7850's ports.

    2: Yes, I downloaded the drivers from AMD's website; no mirrors.

    3: I have it set to PEG. ( PCI express) There's another option in that category; it asks to switch to onboard graphics if PEG malfunctions. Should I disable that so I know my graphics are coming from my 7850. Not sure :p
  7. On number 3 you can give it a shot and see if that solves the issue.
  8. alright
  9. I don't have a picture perfect solution sometimes so what I try to do is poke around and see If I can't feed through possible solutions I would say that is what I'm trying to do by helping you.
  10. Tried, but same situation =//.
  11. The Bios says PCI express is the priority. When I'm in game, the fps is horrible... :( (12)shouldn't be like that huh....
  12. Would overclocking the cpu help? just a random shot
  13. hmm, have you ever used a piece of software to check GPU usage? Something like using msi afterburner with there on screen monitoring.
  14. Your processor isn't holding you back or it shouldn't be not with the frames you are getting.
  15. i never tried msi afterburner =/.
  16. It's a monitoring program comes in use with GPU related items. From fan speed to temps to power usage tons of stuff.
  17. let me try it. Ill take screenshots of it.
  18. Okay I don't see anything with on screen display you go to settings at the bottom. Enable on screen display by going to that tab and enabling it then going to monitoring and selecting all the items you would like.

    It's horrible... :( 13 fps grhh =/
  20. Okay so I see your frames there now the game doesn't look terribly graphically intensive it also looks like a online game like a browser game. I don't know much about Project Blackout is it more internet speed based or graphic based do you have any other games you could try that are single player games.
  21. Let me try MW3
  22. Yea that may be a better game to judge.

    mw3 single player..same thing :(

    at times, mw3 would be 60+ fps slightly though
  24. I'm at a loss I'm unsure why you are experiencing the frames you are. I wonder if anyone thinks overclocking would do anything?
  25. It shouldn't be my graphic's problem, b/c I just removed the 7850 and put in a 6670; with according drivers. Still the same thing lol.

    Do you think it's a cpu issue? Will OC do the job? :O confused :S
  26. Okay with the same application you can track your CPU usage maybe that has something to do with it I'm really unsure.

    http://www.overclock.net/t/1229915/how-to-cpu-and-gpu-usage-along-with-fps-in-game
  27. When i'm in game, cpu goes to 3600 mhz. ratio: 18.0 x

    out of game: 1406 mhz ratio: 7.0x

    Idk should I OC? I'm unsure too :(

  28. No I'll show you what to do :) I took pictures to help you.
    Step:1

    Step:2

    Step:3

    Step:4
  29. I'll get back to this tmr. ITs kinda late sorry!!!
  30. no worries :)
  31. what settings are you running on with CoD
  32. I tried it at normal, still the same thing =/
  33. Idk if extra is a really high resolution pack but maybe turn that down and see if your frames increase.
  34. It has the same problem even if it turned it down to normal :(
  35. I'm running out of things that it could be =\
  36. One thing you do is look at your programs running in the background and try and close all of them and see what happens. All of them meaning skype, anti virus spyware, I don't mean everything I don't know what you run on your computer.
  37. Pc problem solved ^^ it was the mobo all along >.<

    Its probably the CPU
  41. I tested every single hardware by swapping everything out. (regarding the graphic drivers, I uninstalled every driver and installed the latest version; still didn't work.)
    I canceled out the probabilities and only my MOBO was left. So, I replaced my Gigabyte mobo, with an ASUS M5A97 LE 2.0. Downloaded according drivers and everything worked great after ^^
