Windows 7: FPS Help

FPS Help

Hi, I've been having this problem for quite a while now but I didn't pay too much attention as I don't play games a much. Back when I had Vista Home Premium all the games I had played worked like a charm. Until now that I have Windows 7 Home Premium it all went down hill. The games I played worked fine until a few weeks later. My screen went from smooth game play to a photo booth. My screen was as if it was taking pictures every 5 seconds and the animation would change dramatically. Besides this problem, everything else is working fine. I can watch videos that are 2hours long in fine quality so I doubt its my internet. Sorry for the LONG story but I really would like to fix this problem. Windows 7 has really improved but for gaming its terrible for me as it causes my computer to run like a snail.

My computer specs are:

Processor: AMD Phenom 8450 Triple-Core Processor 2.10GHz
RAM: 6.00GB (5.75 GB Usable)
System Type: 64-bit Operating System
GFX Card: NVIDIA GeFORCE 9100
Brand of PC: HP

I wish for step by step help as I am not really experience in fixing computers.

I really need help with this. I don't know much about computers but I do know problems like this never happened to me on Vista. Please can anyone help with this? I really do want to play online games without having my FPS drop down dramatically. =[

Have you tried anything yet to fix the problem?

Read through this thread. While the OP has yet to get his issue fixed, there's a broad range of general fixes and tweaks that may help.

I tried everything. Still no luck. I really need help with this.


Also could you explain this?
Kill McAffee - use a removal too if available and switch to Microsoft Security Essentials. Then use HWInfo32 to monitor and post your temps - is this a laptop or desktop? Uninstall any system cleaners or similar performance apps.


Im not really experienced when to comes to this stuff =(

Hi,

First go back into your control panel and fill in your system specs... your complete system specs... then list the things you've already done.

Mc Afee is an anti virus application that's heavy, bloated and difficult to remove. Killing it, in this case, just means getting rid of it.

Two threads on different forums with the same or similar computer/specs,

geforce 9100 sudden FPS drop - NVIDIA Forums

[SOLVED] Nvidia GeForce 9100 Issues - Tech Support Forum

one common thing in both besides the specs, the solution was to clean the dust out of the computer/heat sink. might be a good idea to pop the side off and have a look, if things are clogged up with dust then a good cleaning should solve the problem.

Sounds like my post - however what games are you trying to play? Your specs are not exactly very high. Additional info is in the troubleshooting guide in my sig - go through it.
