Games running slower after installing Windows 7... Help!!!!?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
2 days ago I installed Windows 7 32-bit. Before that i had windows xp. When I installed Windows 7, I started paying the games Deus ex human revolution and assassin's creed:brotherhood. The problem is the games run slower than windows xp. In fact the whole PC is a little bit slower. Anyway I don't want all games to lag like this. Please tell me what to do if you have a solution.

My specs are:

Windows 7 32-bit
GPU: Nvidia Geforce GTS 250 (directx 10)
CPU:Inter Core 2 Quad 2.40 GHz
RAM: 2 GB

Tell me if you need anything else....I'm not a big techie myself so please explain me if it is possible....

install 64 bits version, you are not taking advantage of the CPU on 100%.

Make sure vsync isn't on by default in the nvidia CP. You mentioned a "Lag" so i naturally thought vsync..

Possibly the difference between DX9 and DX10?

32bit vs 64bit has nothing to do with cpu usage, it's about how much memory the OS can support.

More ram would probably do you a world of good, 2 GB is nothing, since I think 4 GB is the recommended in any modern game. Background processes (which in windows 7 is a lot more than xp) will cause the OS to start writing to the HDD using up the page file instead of the non-existent ram and then things get slow.

its the fact that he only using 2 gb off ramm windows 7 needs a minimum of 2 gb to run the games need more ramm to play so he should use windows 7 64bit and 4 gig off ramm if he wants to play games
