Ok my specs are amd athlon 64 x2 dual core processor 4800+, 3.0GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT on vista 32 bit. i have nothing running in background and i used to lag and sounds would loop and my game would minimize there was a triangle with a black "!" sign on the bottom right of my computer near the clock i click it to see the error but it would go away i would bring l4d back to front and play fine then itd do it again i fixed that by taking dual core optimization off. i turned my settings down and now i lag so bad on survival its pissing me off. can anyone help? this happens on tf2 as well but css is fine on max settings

    Do you only lag on survival? How hot is your video card getting? Was there ever a time when you were able to play Left 4 Dead without problems?

    seems to be only survival... im not sure how hot it is but it is factory overclocked. its the zotac factory overclocked 8800 gt anyways, when i played the demo on freaky free friday (last friday) it was fine. also when i bought my computer he said i might need to upgrade my power supply he said not soon but if i want full performance with my card to do that i just updated my drivers to 182.50 i was 182.08
    im hoping its better.

    my launch options are "-gl -high -noforcemaccel -noforcemparms -noipx -nojoy -console -novid -heapsize 1048576"
    i have all my settings on low and aa on trilinar everything is low except for pagfile which is high

    Download Furmark, and run the burn test watching the temperature until it peaks out. Then tell me what that max temperature is. How many watts is your power supply?

    So there are two possible problems with your system. The first is that your video card is overheating while you are playing, and the second is that your power supply is not powerful enough.

    I used to get the black ! in a triangle thing quite often. Apparantly it was a memory leak in a program in the background. I ran a malware/adware check and I found I had quite a few. After they were removed my framerate increased 10-15fps and is so much more stable.

    Might be your CPU too. If you can play CSS, but not TF2 or L4D, as far as I know they're very CPU demanding games.


    its my psu i need a new one
