Windows 7: DirectX problem causing Games to lag

My msconfig show the same as yours with 6 cores. Those options are for debugging and whatnot. They should all be greyed out or unchecked.

Sometimes helps with stutter:
- Disable C1E and IEST (SpeedStep) in BIOS
- Make sure you are on a High Performance Power Plan.
- Run HWInfo with sensors and check the min value for Bus Clock and Core Clock values (they shouldn't drop below their normal values)

While you are correct in all respects, I have to disagree with this one even though you are right...

My wife's quad will not run with all four cores unless I go into MSConfig and specify four cores. I don't know why this is so, but it has to be done, otherwise her quad Phenom II only runs on one core. Maybe compenthusiast is having a similar issue? That's my guess based on the information in this thread.

I know it sounds all wrong, but maybe it will work.

It doesn't hurt to check whether 2 cores are working, but HWInfo will show it anyway. Core 2 Duo has 2 real cores with no hyper-threading, right? OP can also run Prime95 while running HWInfo to see if any throttling is happening.

By the way I get mixed reviews for GT610, some say it is decent for its price others say it is not working for them.

In any case, maybe check with some other games and some benchmarks too to see if it is a system-wide issue. It may even turn out to be a problem with this particular game.

So to cap (in addition to my previous post):
- Run HWInfo along with Prime95, check any throttling and keep an eye on the temperatures.
- Install some other game, and a benchmark or two (Unigine Heaven and Valley, and 3d Mark 11 for example)

Hi Mellon Head & GokAy,first of all thanks for your suggestions... i will run those things suggested by you people to check if there is any throttle in case of my cpu.

But there is a good news.I think I have solved the lagging problem upto a decent extent & it seems the directx version was causing the problem.What I did is I just googled about the directx version compatibility of the game and from several links I found the game i.e. COD7 prefers directx 9.0c . So I just downloaded it,extracted and installed,then launched the game and to my surprise it worked and the game is running quite well now.There is still some amount of lagging though but i can say that I am playing the game almost 75% - 80% better than earlier.

Now I think there are 3 directx version running simultaneously in my pc, directx 11,10 and 9.0c because 11 was automatically installed during the installation of gpu driver,10 was installed during the installation of cod7 and i myself installed the 9.0c version separately afterwards. Maybe that's why the game is still lagging a bit but anyway it's running much much better than earlier as i said almost 75% - 80% better. I wasn't sure about the plan but i tried and it worked,feeling very happy now.

Having different versions of DirectX at the same time is normal and not a cause for issues. Black Ops uses 9.0c I believe so updating it was a good idea.
