Gaming Problems - Skipping on all games
Posted on 2004-03-31
My computer :
2.4 Ghz AMD Athelon
64 MB GeForce 4
40 GB Free Hard Drive
Recently after downloading a windows update for my version of windows 2000, I haven't been able to play games since. The download updated drivers which I have since reverted back to the original drivers and have had no success. I decided to upgrade to Windows XP and after installing the new windows, I am still facing the same Problems as I had before the upgrade.
Problem: Game loads fine, menus work great, then the game loads from the opening menu; the game appears and then a horrible skipping in the audio and video occurs making the game unplayable. I have closed all programs, closed all processes other than ones necessary to run windows and yet the problem remains. What would cause flawless gaming two weeks ago to unplayable gaming with a mere windows update? Any explanation would be great. Thanks!
