Windows 7: 3-8 second lag during gamin'

3-8 second lag during gamin'

Hello-bello!

I bought Acer 7745G with HD5850, 4GB DDR3 and i430M. The OS is w7 Home Premium. During playing with cod2, wow and grid it stops for some second. Just the game freeze, mouse still work and i can hit alt+tab and go to the desk. I checked it, at this moment the HDD works 100% for that time. After that the game runs perfectly. I played with NFSShift too but it didnt make this or I have not play enough..

I updated my drivers, installed new w7 but neither helped.

Can somebody help me? This is so annoyin...

yes filling in your system specs would be helpful

also try Tips on Troubleshooting Game Issues

since you are having trouble with older DX9 games on Windows 7 I would pay close attention to this part of sygnus21's excellent post:

5 - Update your Direct X files - Contrary to popular belief, just because Windows 7 is DX11 capable doesn’t mean it has the latest DX9 files!!! Most game issues can be fixed by simply updating the DX files.

BTW - Windows 7 is fully compatible with games and hardware that use older versions of DirectX

I updated my notebook info. There is only DX9, i downloaded it and installed the game's DX. I tested my HDD with Hard Disk Sentinel, it has once 1495ms answer time or acces time and three 200ms+. It can mean something?

I tried it, it caused total game freeze.

A guy suggested me to update audio drivers, i did it, but it didn't help.

Any idea?

AND ALSO TO KOROM (If you are running Kaspersky also)

Go into the settings of Kaspersky and go to the last option called GAming profile. Make sure that is enabled. Kaspersky will run a scan every now and again everytime the games access files it needs on the HDD whilst you play.
