Low FPS in CS:S with4200+ x2, 2.2GHz stock, 939 - Page 6

Alright, that could help me out even more too, since I have good cooling yet when I OC to 2.4 it gets raped during a Stress Test, and I've heard reports of my processor reaching 3.6, 2.8 on stock air.

Kool. Analyzing the processes. Matter of fact, there is one other thing I'd like you to do.

Download and install STARTUP INSPECTOR for WINDOWS. Let it do an analysis of your startup items, and remove all that are not needed.

Unless you have a single drive, with a single partition, and it's the same one you've bene formatting each time, then we can't rule out virus/spyware. Some of these buggers embedd themselves in your SYSTEM VOLUME INFORMATION folders on each partition of your drive, and then re-populate the main partition after a format. Granted, with no spyware/virus/firewall application running, and a fresh install, the only other things it could be are
  1. Hardware
  2. Software
By this I mean either the hardware is faulty - try alternate video card/memory/board. Or there is something on your machine that is hogging the resources when the graphics get intense, or sending so many packets in the background that you lag when in-game.

Try the card in a friend's machine and see how it works. If it gives the same trouble it's the card. If not, then we need to look at your memory/board as a possible problem.

Still waiting on your results and still analyzing the startup items and background programs.

PeAcE.

Alright well it turns out Cool n Quiet was already Disabled, and I have tryed a different video card, I had this same problem a long time ago when I had my 6800gs. And I know a virus isn't on any other partition because I only made another partition for Linux at one point, and I formatted over every partition. And since Linux can't transfer virus's to Windows without having Write To enabled, which I didn't, I shouldn't have one. And I only scored 5146 in 3dMark06. I don't know if thats good or bad. And I do have a single drive as well. Plus I have already disabled all the programs I don't need via msconfig.

Question.

Are you using a gateway PC?

Reason I ask is this process

PRISMXL.SYS

You certainly dont have BARE installation here.
And if you do - It would mean that some software you've had to install (driver's prolly).. uses this.

YOu have any Idea of what maybe using this process?
Any network administration/related program you may have installed?

I used to have Gateway, but I completely upgraded everything, I'm still using the Windows that came with it though. Only thing I have from my old gateway is the hard drive, 1 gig of ram, processor and CD drives. Everything else is new. I have no idea what uses that process, although I shall try ending it and running Source.

yeah.

Perhaps that software is embedded with the Gateway windows CD....

You DO realize, that you're using NON-gateway hardware, with an installation disk, bundled for use with a Gateway PC

Yeah I know, but I still had this problem when I had my Gateway, hence the reason I upgraded in the first place. Plus ending that task changed nothing at all. I'm about to go eat lunch so I'm going to run the MemTest86 CD in the background.

Alright I let MemTest86 run for 2 hours, and I was told that I would be able to find an error an hour into it, so there were no errors at all. But I did notice one thing, is ECC supposed to be disabled? And if it isn't, how do I enable it and what does it do?

When testing RAM with MemTest86+, the best practice is to usually let it check for errors for far more than two hours for thoroughness. I would say a minimum of twelve for my own overclocks, but of course I'm more patient than most.

ECC is disabled because you're not running a server-type of system. ECC stands for Error Correcting Code, a specific type of RAM type run on mission-critical server equipment. AMD's original Opterons (S940) required this. Desktop applications don't.

Hope this helps.
