Problem with pci Tnt 2 m64 graphics in games on pc (URGENT!!)
Posted on 2002-06-02
Ok i am quite knowledgable in computers myself and I have this one big problem with my pc my graphics card as i said in the title that its a pci Tnt 2 m64 and the manafacturer is Powercolor and my pc specifics is as follows : I have a slot 1 celeron 266mhz cpu my m/b is an Asus p2L97 with 128mb ram and i have a 100mb network card and a yamaha xg soundcard and a 40gb hdd. Ok the problem that i have is that i games any game i have a problem with the graphics for some reason it doesnt run as good as it should at all eg. Counterstrike seeing as i play it often at lans, in counterstrike i get about 10 to 12 frames per second if it is in opengl, software or direct3d it doesnt get any faster and wont :P now i have tried evrything you could think of i update my drivers whenever the newest detonator drivers comes out and it doesnt get better i tried the old drivers again and it didnt work either i currently have the newest detonator drivers installed on my pc and didnt make any difference a friend of mine tried some settings on my card that remarkably improved the performance on other peoples pc's with their gforces, agp tnt's etc. but still it didnt make a difference so at the moment i am desperate because i have had this card for a long time and the performance never improved even when i upgraded my pc to what it is now I know its not a very good pc but it should be enough. Now the only conclusion that i have come to so far is that my card is too new for my m/b and cpu and so it creates a bit of a clash or something but i dont see why that should make much of a difference even if it happens to be the case. Oh and one more thing with some movies on my pc it lags a bit as in the sond is before the picture and the picture lags a bit sometimes while the sound goes on fluently but i dont know if thats a screen card problem but i thought i'd mention it just in case it may help. Whoever can help me solve this problem deserves a big bright and shiny gold medal plus the points i am offering.
