Windows 7: Gaming & High Latency

Gaming & High Latency

Ok I've been searching for answers high and low on the internet trying to figure out why windows 7 lags games. The problem is when I play the fps Combat Arms I experience horrible lag spikes. Ill move normally but everyone else in the room is moving in place or Ill be booted out of the room. When I check my latency on resource monitor my latency is in the 200's or 300's, this happens on every online game I play. I use ventrilo while playing and I notice I disconnect when I lag on CA and then Ill reconnect moments later, windows 7 seems to screw with my connection.

Are you using a router, and if so, do you have ports opened for the game on the router?

High latency is often a driver problem. For a quick check, look into Device Manager whether anything is flagged with a yellow triangle. If yes, that is your culprit. If no, check all drivers that might play a role during your games.

I've installed the leatrix program and I'm still having high latency, also Ive updated the drivers using driver genius. Do you think getting a new modem would fix the problem?

To be sure what's going on you may want to check with this program: DPC Latency Checker

It would be helpful if you could more thoroughly fill in your system specs so we know exactly what we're dealing with.

However, two things I would try to start:

First read this: "lag" in online games with Windows 7 Read it all the way through before you make any adjustments. The multi-media class scheduler tweak really helped me, but I didn't have your specific problem of really high pings, only spikes, which weren't that bad, but bad enough to spoil my gaming; the tweak fixed all that.

Second: use direct sound for Ventrilo. It's a checkbox on the upper right in the setup menu.

Those two things should help you out, a lot, if the problem isn't related to your modem, your ISP or some other hardware related issue we won't know about till we see your full specs.
