Performance problem....

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi everybody. Ok, first of all sorry for my english.


Well, I have a Intel Pentium 4 3.00ghz, with 1gb RAM, and NVIDIA Geforce FX 5500 128 mb.


I think I have a "good" computer. But my graphic card is slowint it down. I'm a CS player but I can't play it quite good, I have max. 60 fps on that game. And what is worst, I can't even open Mozilla tabs, I mean, I can do it but it's like "slowly" when they're opening.

I don't know if you can understand what I mean. I think the problem is my graphic card, I installed latest Nvidia drivers, then watching it didnt work I installed NGO drivers, but still the same.


I can't open embed flash videos. I can't do nothing. I don't know what's going on. Please, help, what is happening?


This is happening since they first day I bought it. Im thinking of changing my graphic card (plus motherboard) and buying a 8600 GTS, but I don't think a computer can be so slowly.



Thanks in advance, and again, sorry for my english.

The latest drivers for the FX5500 in XP is Forceware 162, are those the ones you tried?

What type of budget would you have? You may want to consider a budget build with the whole works.

I'm sorry, what budget means?

I downloaded latest drivers, yes. But it's still working slowly. It's so weird.

Btw, sometimes (not so often) starts working "fine" but then, after sometime (even playing an embed video) it gets slowly again.

budget= how much you are willing to spend on a new computer/upgrades

Re-format everything perhaps? Start new?

sounds more like a spyware problem.. yes reformat the pc and go from there to find out wether it's a software or hardware related issue.

You may try to uninstall the NVIDIA drivers first, reboot, then install the latest drivers.

I have had issues before with not uninstalling first.
