my celeron computer is going bad. It seems awfully slow. ok here it is. I am running win ME (all updated etc) Celeron 4 1.6 (although it says on some places 1.7 and 1.8). 256 DDR ram. radeon 8500 64ddr.40 GB hd(seagate i think 7200 rpm i think also)(all with the latest patches. dx 9) My computer seems awfully slow. Some of my gmaes run faster and smoother on my old hp 366. And my friend who has a 1.8 GHZ Pentium 4 (same ram but with a geforce 400mx and with win XP no updated drvers) can run 300% bots on battlefield 1942 with 25 percent of cpu on bot ai. Graphics options are all lower. He leaves all his background progs running aswell (he will get an av of 20 FPS). Then i run bf 1942. close all my background progs, set graphics to low excpet for sight distance which is set at 80%. I set bots to 150% ad cpu time to 20% and i get lots of slowdowns and the game will run at about 14 fps. What can i do to make my games esp battlefield run properly. Its not just my games but the whole computer seems slow.
