counter strike SLOW DOWN!!



Ever since i installed XP ive geen getting major slow downs in counter strike. Before in windows 98 i would get frames per seconds in the 80's and 90's range, now i can still get there but when the action starts they jump down to like 20 fps.

I even have the lates drivers for my video card which is a Hercules 3D Prophet 4500.:confused:

any one know a way to fix this?

i love XP but i also love counter strike dont wanna give one up beacause of the other...

You have anything running in the background? You running OPENGL or D3D? Turn off your vsync if you have that option. If it's a Nvidia based Vid Card get the Nvidia Refreshrate Fix. Set it to your moniter recommended Hz at the res you run.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
