View Full Version : Graphics 'sticking'

09-08-2001, 03:44 PM
When I run Microsoft Combat Flt sim the grahics seem to stick for a fraction of a sec as the images are playing out. Not a continuos stick but only every so often as the games plays and it happens in the blink of the eye but is noticeable.. This is on the lowest settings and wasn't a problem earlier as the the images flowed quite freely. I have a PC co 655Mhz celeron and PC co 17' monitor. The video card is a 32mb TnT2 M64 if that helps you. Thanks guys.

Did you run a full install, normal, or lite.

When then happens is your cdrom light flicker ?

Have a look at the HDD light, if it constantly going, then another app may be running in the background.

Check your task list, programs like FindFast, slow the system down because they index your drive. Programs like ReadAudio, etc install in the system tray reducing the amount of memory available to your system as they often can't be swapped out.
If your running win Me, disabling System Restore can inprove performance a lot.

Also do a check for spyware with Ad-Aware, esp if youve down loaded one of the Napster clones.
