Windows 7: FPS Drops / Spikes in any game

FPS Drops / Spikes in any game

Hello ! For some days I'm experiencing some issues in all of my games (CS / CSS / HoN / Dota2 / CoD4 / LoTR / Blur and so on) . I've searched google for some hour for a fix , and I found that this problem may be from the sound card , so I disabled it . Everything went ok , no lag at all ! .. But , when I try to re-enable the soundcard , it's starts again . I found on the google @ steam forums , a "famous" thread with a fix : disabling Networkthrotling . I tried that , but didn't work at all .
I updated my soundcard driver - fail

Oh , my soundcard is a ASUS XONAR-DS , running on a Windows 7 x64 .


Please , help me ! I can't play a damn thing on this crap -.- .

Sorry for my bad english , not realy my 1st language .

Seems like you might be one of those rare people who has an issue with electical noise becoming a problem. Essentially, what you are experiencing is interference entering your computer through the soundcard and causing your GPU (most likely other components) to behave erratically as it tries to interpret the random signals.

Do the cables plugged into your sound card run near to or overlap any power cables?

Nope , I'm trying to keep the cables not to touch eachother or other hardwares .

On some other forums where I rad that fix (with reg keys) , seems that other people have the same problem like mine , modifying regs doesn't work -.- .

That would most likely be because this isn't a software issue; the fault lies in the physical components themselves. At some point your soundcard is introducing electrical noise into the system, it could even be that the soundcard itself is faulty; when playing music do you suffer even the slightest amount of distortion, hiss or static popping?

No. While I'm out of games , the sound it's ok . No problems at all (flash players / mp3 / movies/ etc.)

Then I could only say that the card itself must be fine and backtrack to the interference possibility :I I would have loved to say that perhaps the card couldn't handle the work that these games were giving it, but Counterstrike is hardly a challenging game for any piece of hardware today.

I could suggest trying shielded audio cables but that's all it would be; trying. There's no guarantee it would fix your problem.

Update drivers from Asus website

Dilix,

If you used the drivers from the installation CD, they are woefully outdated. I had the same problem. Go to the Asus website and download the latest driver update directly. You will have to download the file and save it, then uninstall the old drivers. After which, of course, you install the new update. I have that card, and it worked fine with everything but the resource intensive FSX.

The new drivers are specific to Windows 7-64,( Not Vista.) hopefully this helps you.
