Okay after since I installed Call Of Duty MW2, I experience a lot of sudden fps drops in all games. When the game starts, I get a nice 60fps gameplay. After 5 minutes of playing my FPS will suddenly drop to 10-15fps for around ten minutes and the thing repeats. My CPU usage would be 100% at that time (This never happens before Call Of Duty MW2 was installed). I've tried uninstalling Call Of Duty MW2, no luck. Updated my drivers, no luck. Here are my specs by the way : Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T6400 @ 2.00GHz 2.00GHz 2 GB of RAM Nvidia GeForce 9300M GS 256MB Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit 250 GB of HDD 23.6 GB free on C Drive and 83.4 GB free on D Drive. I also close all background applications before playing the game, my CPU usage will still rise to 100%. I did defrag my computer too. I am using laptop because I can't get back my PC for some reason. Please help me ASAP!

    You're jumping into conclusions.

    If it worked before, the OS can not be the issue. Don't spew out typical Vista bashing nonsense.

    Of that 250GB how much space is free? Like everyone else is saying a disk defragment may help improve performance. Other issues could be page file size.

    Yeh Hard Drive space is always good, though I'd say Ram might also be an issue, 2G ...doesnt get you far these days not with games like Crysis ..that is if you dont mind playing the game with crude graphic settings. course with a 32bit chip set..you can prolly get another gig or two out of it, think it supports up to 3.5 or 4gigs..

    Depends, commonly around 3.5GB. Depends on other RAM like on the GPU and such.

    The GFX card. x200 to x500 series are for standard use, if I'm not wrong. Games work better with x600 to x800 series.

    From those specs it looks like your using a laptop and trying to run MW2 on which won't happen because laptops like that aren't meant to run games.

    i still have 23.6GB at my C Drive and 833.4GB on my D Drive.

    The reason I am playing with my laptop is becuase I left my PC back at my hometown for some reason and I can't get it back.

    I don't know if it's a problem with RAM. I have 2GB and MW2 runs beautifully. I can't run it on max graphics (that drops me down to 15 fps or so) but it still looks great.

    On another note, Windows 7 runs all of my games, and pretty much every program on my laptop for that matter, than Vista ever did. Frankly, I see that as an eyewitness account, rather than some blind yipping hatred from some chihuahua behind his 6' tall wooden fence.

    EDIT:: Oh, and one question for the OP: What drive are you trying to run your games from? In my experience with hard drives, it only utilizes the empty space on the one that the game is installed on. (Now, you might be a better programmer than I am, and have found a way around that, but I just thought I'd ask)

    Anyways you won't get as much power as in a normal PC if you are using a laptop. Get used to use your PC to run games, laptops are, were and will (may) be configured for people that actually use them for their jobs, not for gaming.

    And no, ATi has the best hardware, it is more advanced than Nvidia, ATi cards don't consume a lot of power. Anyways, do you want a tl;dr? Use a normal PC.

    Photobucket Not mine but

    For playing Xbox360
    I hate mAh xbox, PC FTW!
    But seriously Xbox live died after the party system, It saves the pros at times but yet there is no more social games.

    The whole player base on Xbox 360 are crap
    No Skills
    No Admins
    No Rules or code of conduct
    No Control
    No Accout banning
    No Society based games ( No Groups )
    No Teamwork
    No Internet based forums
    No Community servers or Specialized Servers ( Zombys and RPG )

    SARCASTIC is why Xbox 360 is not a Competant gaming platform
    I own a XBOX360, For the simple fact that it's a blondy tech, Any one can figure out how to use it. I have allot of friends who play it but i prefer playing my pc

    The've got auto aim for free!
    WE NEED TO HACK TO GET THAT STUFF!
    Oh yeah, No hackers?
    Lag switchers.
    Nade spammers
    little kids
    Modded controllers
    and most of all un bannable hackers!
    There are Xbox LIVE hackers. Don't beleave me fine. Then tell how you get 10 sec on the FNG?

    Sorry had to say why that is not an option
    And sorry don't mean to throw flame bait.

    This system of host "selection" sucks, P2P in general sucks. This is why the Orange Box for the xbox360 failed with the release of TF2, the Host always had an advantage over everyone else. And you can usually find out in Mw2 who the host is..namingly they are gunna be the one to summon a high level kill-streak reward within the first 1-2 minutes of the game starting..ie..tac-nuke

    That is one of the biggest problems with it. The other one that I've found is when you get dropped into the middle of the game, you end up dying 20 times for every 1 kill you make. Has anyone else had this problem?
