Horrible FPS

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok, here is the deal. Normally when I play Left 4 Dead 2 I usually average about 110fps on 4800x900 resolution. Now for some reason when I try to play the game I can only get right around 20fps. This is really weird, because this game usually performs the best and never dips under 100fps. Vertical Sync is off. Everything else is maxed. I have tried toying with the settings with no luck at all.

The only time I've managed to stuff my fps up was when I fiddled with my catalyst settings, try resetting them to default and see if that fixes it.

Monitor GPU usage, and try it across a small variety of games.

If no go, do a quick reinstall/wipe of drivers.

Make sure you don't have an extra hl2.exe in your processes. Happens to me.
