Low FPS on TF2 with good computer

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone!

I'm rather new to the forums on this website, and wanted to get some help after I spent a couple of hours trying to fix my computer... to no avail

On any server in TF2, my FPS rates have been very low, while my ping was as normal as everyone else's. My FPS rates have been around:

10 whenever I am in the middle of a firefight
30-40 all other times
(the rates are the same in both low and high settings)

Here are my computer spec's:

Manufacturer Model: Alienware M15x
OS: Windows 7 Premium 64-bit
Processor: Intel Core i7 740QM Quad Core Processor, @ 1.73GHz
Memory: 4GBs
DirectX: 11
GPU: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5850

I've had my laptop for almost a year now, and recently, the performance had started to downgrade. I did not check my FPS rates when I had just purchased my laptop, since I was satisfied with the performance. But now, I can't even turn without the game stuttering. I've updated my driver for my graphics card and my chipset just yesterday, which did not improve the gameplay. Can anyone help me fix this problem?

Steam -> games library -> right click on the game name -> properties -> local files tab -> First verify intergrity of game cache, then do the defragment cache files.


Worked for me when I had these issues. In fact, I better do it now again.

I actually did verify the integrity of the game cache and defragmented the game not too long ago, but heck, I did it again... still no improvement.

And here's my HiJackThis log:

sorry about the double post...

but i was also wondering, should i be only getting about 30-40 fps during the game when i hear of other people constantly getting 60+ fps? Is my computer just not able to handle that many frames per second?

What are your temps like? Specifically GPU load temp while playing.
Meh >.<

do you know if your cpu and gpu are being used 100% or at least something high during gameplay?

Use task manager -> performance tab to check CPU

and something like MSI Afterburner to check GPU

after testing my cpu and gpu in a full 32-man server, i found my cpu to be working at an average of 30-40%, and my gpu to be working at around 30-40%.
(cpu level was fluctuating between 25-50%, while gpu stayed within range)

and temps... I'm not too familiar with temps. I just downloaded a program called Speedfan, but still don't know what to get out of it.

Hmm... Unsure about the load distribution across cores. Check your graphical settings in game and see whether "multicore rendering" is checked. Then toggle it to the opposite of whatever it currently is. Repeat testing.

Yesss! My game is running smooth again. I disabled the multicore rendering option (which was shown as the recommended option in the game), and did a spyware scan, which found some adware lurking around in my files.

After changing these options, my cpu level went down to around 20-30%, and my gpu level went up to around 40-50%. My new FPS rates are around:

40-50 in a firefight
70-120 all other times

One other thing I should mention is that my laptop comes with a set of buttons at the top of the keyboard, and one of these buttons turns on "stealth mode", which turns down my cpu performance significantly... and I just noticed that it was on.

I also turned that off before testing again, so THAT may have been what was killing me.

Lastly, I just wanted to know some ways I can increase my performance for games OVERALL, such as gameboosting and overclocking? I'm kind of new to playing "out of the box".
