    Hello...

    I have a PC installed with Win XP Pro and patched with SP1 too, running on Intel P4 1.7Ghz, 256MB DDR Ram, and 20GB Hard Disk Drive. Problem is .. kinda strange but just wandering if anyone might have a clue when my client tries to play pinball on the PC, the ball lags every now and then.

    I turned on task manager and notice that each time the ball lags, the CPU usage is almost 100%. But the strangest part is however, if I keep clicking on both the bottom stoppers (Z and / key), it doesn't lag as the CPU usage is just normal around 2 - 3%. Once I don't press anything and allow the ball to float above, it lags and lags and lags .. ??

    Any idea please?? :huh:
