  1. Hello forum,

    I recently reformated my computer, with windows xp home editon.
    and i just installed all my drivers for my graphix card, motherbord, chipset, sound ect ect.
    i installed World of Warcraft and Call of duty MW2
    Previously after i installed World or Warcraft i tested it see how it ran, and it ran 60-70 FPS (perfect) and so i closed it down and installed COD MW2 and when that was installed i jumped back on WoW and i started to get massive glitch FPS i could barley play (15- 20 FPS) when it was working fine, i dont understand what has went wrong, also when i had music playing it would slow the song right down almost slow motion, but when i look in the sky on WoW it be fine, just running around id hit 15 FPS, same with Call of duty MW2 i cant even play that without it running really low Frames.

    i have tryed most things in the other forums like:
    Re - installing my graphix driver /update
    Re- Installing my Sound driver / update
    Re- installing my chipset driver / update
    Re- installing my anti virus
    and testing the games without them installed.

    My computer is not over heating, it sits on 8 degreese on the CPU and 35 degresse on the system. and there is bearly any background programs running.

    can someone please help me find what is wrong with my computer, its driving me insaine.

    My computer specs are:

    Pentium Dual Core E5200 and 2.50ghz, 2.51ghz
    4 gig ram.
    windows xp home edition / with service pack 3
    Nvidia Gefore 9600GT card
    Asus P5KC motherboard
    250gig HDD

    Before i reformated i could play fine nothing was wrong what so ever, and has never played up like that before.
    Please could you help me fix this, i am all out of ideas for 2 whole days i have tryed and i am giving up.

    sincerly Waynos

    Could you please be more specific and post the specs of your system. And on what games are you experiencing issues?

    I suggest that you reinstall your OS and drivers afresh. I don't see any reason as to why the framerates are so bad. BTW, what PSU are you using?
