Radeon 9200 and 7500 Random standby in game....

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I know both of these cards are very old...But I haven't got the money to upgrade right at he moment...And I don't do alot of gaming...for what I do they work just fine...And there not on the verge of dieing...I don't think...But when I'm in selective games...mostly Sims2 The fps will be fine...But then Ill do something like move around alot or something and then my fps will just drop...And then my monitor will go on stand by...sorta like it overheated...But then I alt Tab out...And its fine...Then I click on the game at the bottom (in the task bar) And it boots back up...sometimes does it again...But usually goes back in...Its been doing this enough to me get annoyed by it...Like every X amount of minutes it does this...Is this my vid card overheating? Or is it something like the game just not liking it...Because on the box of the Sims It supports 7500's and up...And the game runs at a soiled frame rate...then just slows down and goes on stand by sometimes...

Ive been using ATI Tray and it stabilizes it so it does not do it as much...And since then Ive been able to open it back up when it minimizes after this...

Any Ideas?...

It may be overheating, but first things first, update the drivers.
If problems persist check your background running processes one of them may be messing with your FPS.
If problem still persists try to give your card as much breathing room as you can (opening the side of the case, cleaning dust off of it etc)
