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!

try clearing or resetting the configuration data in the pci section of your bios

When I tried resetting, I'm stuck on the IRQ part. It gives me the options of auto, and the rest are numbers. =//

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.

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

On number 3 you can give it a shot and see if that solves the issue.

The Bios says PCI express is the priority. When I'm in game, the fps is horrible... :(  (12)shouldn't be like that huh....

Your processor isn't holding you back or it shouldn't be not with the frames you are getting.

It's a monitoring program comes in use with GPU related items. From fan speed to temps to power usage tons of stuff.

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.

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.

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?

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

Idk if extra is a really high resolution pack but maybe turn that down and see if your frames increase.

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.

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 ^^
