Windows 7: Game Performance Help.

Game Performance Help.

Hey Windows 7 User's,

About 2 day's ago I've switched from XP to Windows 7 and everything is going good, except one thing. I have a game I play, when I played it on my XP everything was good. No lag, and it was pretty smooth. Once I upgraded to W7 I start to lag when I play, and it isn't smooth. I've dropped the game performances and it's still the same.

Anyone know the problem?

Thanks. Post here

It might also help to know what the name of the game is. If we're talking about a game like Crysis or GTA IV, you may not meet the minimum requirements. Both games almost require a super computer to run good. The minimum requirements under Win 7 will be higher than they were on XP.

Have you tried updating your video card driver since installing Win 7? The generic drivers from Microsoft suck, for lack of a better word.



Edit: I see this is an online game...duh, helps to read. How is your internet connection?

Seems fine, how do I check to be sure?

With Windows 7 you have aero running in the background, add this to your game and your card might be slightly overwhelmed.
Several things to try:
Use a basic theme (aero turned off)
Shut down any unnecessary start up programs
Shut down any unnecessary services

I would try combinations of the above and see if it helps while playing.

try to play is dx 9 mode. xp did not support dx10 I noticed a difference (performance decrease) in dx 10 compatible games from my change to xp to vista then and then better performance when i swapped back to xp. When I changed to seven things got better. But still kinda sluggish. I couldn't run on the higher setting that i could in xp. Mainly because of dx10 that my card is kinda crap for.

I would invest in a newer card. It doesn't have to be a current gen card but within one or two generations. I am an ati guy so a 38xx or better card ( or nividia equivalent)
