Counter Strike Source lag

By Spawny3

  1. I installed Counter-Strike Source yesterday and it would not stop lagging when I entered a game. I own a Windows Vista Home Basic, and my computer already meets all of the system requirements for Counter-Strike Source:

    2.00 GHz processor
    2036 MB RAM
    DirectX 10 capable graphics card
    Qwest Broadband DSL

    I would appreciate any help that anyone has to offer. Thanks.

    What is your graphics card and did you install the most recent driver for that card? And if you did, did you uninstall the old driver first?

    Edit: What frame rate do you get on the video stress test?

    Mailpup being that his description of his pc is really vague I'm going to guess and say he hasnt done one yet and doesnt know how to yet.

    You may be right. That was my indirect way of asking him to perform the test. As you may know when you first start CS: S the video stress test is one of the options shown so it's not hard to find.

    Oh I know how to install and uninstall drivers, so don't try to imply anything about me:) And I found the problem. Nevermind guys, thanks.
