PostSubject: I cant figure it out   Tue Dec 21, 2010 12:24 pm

For about a week now my game play has been horrible with this lag i seem to get every ten minutes or so.I get 10 mins of play with everything normal then like three mins of slow motion and can barely move then its like it snaps out of it and goes normal for ten mins.I have no idea what it could be ive hit control alt delete to see if some programs were popping up and making it lag but nothing seems to be running in the background.I also uninstalled bf2 and reinstalled but that didnt work.I am basically computer illiterate and dont know much about computers other than load bf2 and kill lol,if someone has any ideas or suggestions i would love to hear it and it would be greatly appreciated.

For those a little more technology literate than me I thing Rit is running windows 7. Unfortunatelt I am more familiar with msdos 3.2 but a lot of you will only see that in a museum.


Anyway, I would start with the basics

1- Windows disc defrag
2- clear out internet explorer history etc
3 - make sure you aint got any big pics as your background as I hear this can hog memory
4 - check your screen saver is not on or does not have those randomly generated shapes (this used to cause performace issued while back)
5 - talk to an expert as I say I only know a little


Sorry I cant give you instructions on how to do this as I have never used 7

good luck
Mike

Are you using an old Hard Disk ?
I mean, could be a damaged HD.
Antivirus turned off ?

Antivirus is off,its sad im so stupid with the stuff i dont even know what you mean by hard disk blanco.I just bought the computer about five months ago and its a hp pavilion magnesium gray edition

graphics is a nvidia geforce 9100

windows 7

amd phenom quad core processor

8gb and 1 terabyte hard drive

i dont know what any of it means or even if its good enough or i should upgrade to something better i just dont understand why everything was running fine and i didnt change or add anything new and all the sudden this started happening.I keep hoping it will just go away cause my head is spinning trying to figure out what is going on lol.

It only seems to be getting worse so I'm wondering if maybe something internally is causing problems.

Holy crap dude you should fly!!!!
Run bf2 as admin.
you have a quad core and 8 gigs! i only have one yes bf2 is a memory whore but you have almost way too much you don't need too upgrade.
Try updating your punk buster and or uninstall it and re install it.... if that does not work try this
My Documents\Battlefield 2\mods\bf2\cache clear all the files in there. And no it will not crash your computer....
Clear it all and do it every time b4 you join or start up bf2 Very Happy this will help...

Doesn't sound like it's a BF2 issue to me. You should try loading some other work intensive programs and see if it gets bogged down. Check your task manager and see if any programs are using system resources.

I've been mulling your problem over and have an idea. Your cpu is obviously strong enough for bf2 so the issue is with the software, spyware I'm thinking. So try this, its all free and helped me in the past with other games....

Download and run Adware(free). Then reboot.
Download and run CCleaner (yes, 2 c's) then reboot.
Lastly download "spybot search & destroy" then reboot.

Pray to God, cross your fingers, then Run bf2.then post your results.

Good luck my friend. Also, I noticed that your fairly close to me, if you need help running these applications, just send me a msg with your phone num and I can call and help you out over the phone.

God speed and good luck.

I hade these kind of problems from time to time, and when that happends i shut down the router for 2 minutes and restart it again.
It helps most of the time.
I have also bought a new router a few times and it has also helped.

You are correct.I grew up in newark then moved to livermore about 4 years ago.

I will give all of these items you guys have mentioned a try to see because I'm lost and have tried everything I could think of down to deleting all files to bf2 then reinstalling it all over again.

Drinking by 18?!?! No way! My father had me plastered at 16! Lol

I live in the east bay, right at the boarder of Concord and Clayton. Good luck on your fix. I wouldnt rush to uninstall anything just yet, run those programs first and let me know how that works.

Good luck my man.

There is clearly some background process turning on and off on your machine. I've had similar issue back in the day, when I couldn't fix them, a reformat was in order.

I was going to reformat but it wouldnt let me because i guess windows dont allow you to do it anymore without saving some things to a disk first, but i need to go get the disks before i reformat.My brother was telling me thats a bunch of shit cause you used to be able to reformat whenever without saving things to disks.

It's been a long while since I have reformatted, and I am still using XP Pro, so I'm not sure about W7, but I wouldn't shocked if you have to save files to delete them. Everything Microsoft does is counterintuitive.
