I am very very very frustrated, I tried everything:
Installing new BIOS,
Installing new mobo drivers,
Installing new Video Card drivers,
Installing the UltraATA drivers from intel,
set BIOS to default
reassemble the hardwares,
but nothing seemed to work...
Here's the problem, I have a Celeron 700 @ 900, CUSL2-C, GF4 Ti4400, with the newest 44.3 Det FX Drivers from NVIDIA. And DX9.
Whenever I play a game, probably when the DX engine is initialted, i can play the game for 10 minutes without SLOWNESS, then after 10 minutes or so, it would often SLOW-DOWN to 1FPS/s, more like Playing the game in slow motion, for 10 seconds, then comes back to normal game play, about 60fps/s. I have tried it on many games, same result.
This has never happened before, just happened today. Now I didn't use computer for half a month. And I doubt anything physically damaged anything, if it did, it would probably stop working.
I flashed my mobo with the tweaked BIOS that forces AGP4x even if you OC CPU(ASUS CUSL2-C has a safty feature that turns off AGP4x if you OC 140Mhz or more).
Someone please please please please help. If you have AIM please get on, my sn is PrudensOptimus, help help.
get rid of the oc then tell us if you still have a problem. if asus put a safety feature on the board then it is probably there for a reason. either do that or set the agp to 2x. either one will tell yyouthat its an agp 4x problem with your oc
