  1. why the hell does all my games keep stopping or should i say pausing for a milisecond, every 4 seconds when I use my dsl connection, even tho i'm playing in single player ? it freezes every thing for about a tad second, every 4 seconds, then the cycle goes on! and its annoying me. How can I run a smooth game? WHat is going on here? How can I fix this problem? Plz help me i'm desperate!
    I have a decent comp with a P4 1.6 ghz, 256 mg ddr ram, geforce 2 mx 400, winXP.

    Does the problem go away if you disable your DSL connection?

    What game are you playing, specifically?

    What resolution/graphic settings are you running?

    Is anything running in the background?

    I don't know if a Geforce2 MX400 can qualify as decent :rolleyes:

    Do you have the latest NVIDIA, DirectX, OpenGL, etc. drivers installed?

    Is there an IRQ conflict within your Device Manager?

    yes it goes away if i dont connect to dsl

    it applies to all games that i play even in single players

    1000 x 700 resolution

    i run norton which is no problem theres i even unistall and it still dont work.

    Geforce 2 mx400 kicks *** when i play ut or cs.

    I alrdy tried installing the detenators 41.0 i think, and the problem still not go away.

    what is irq?

    IRQ means interrupt request. Go to the System control panel -> Device Manager. If you see any yellow/red exclamation points or question marks it means there's a problem.

    Don't you mean 1024x768? ;)

    Try installing old drivers. Your MX400 might not like the 41.10's, or a few newer ones.

    Do you run KaZaA?
