    Magnificent thread, mopar man. I may not have had that many issues with CS:S, but I have had issues with HL2:EP1. :( But those are fixed now though...but this is a great thread.

    Thanks!

    Yep, a good thread for CS:S pub scrubs who can't figure out how to use an Autoexec.cfg or how to use any console commands.
    Either way most people don't play competitively like me so this thread should help plenty of people ^.^

    As for a stable config to help players FPS, I've helped MANY friends by using this config. It makes the graphis look worse and it makes the game a little less enjoyable but it is a great config: http://counterstrikestrats.com/FPSGuide.html

    Your PC does not appear to meet the minimum requirements of the game. The minimum is 1.2 GHz processor. I don't understand what you wrote regarding your RAM. It doesn't add up. Anyway, your available RAM is also below the minimum requirement.

    Without knowing the major specifications of your Vista desktop I really can't give you a useful response. What are they? See my "System specs" to the far right of my name to get an idea of what specifications to which I am referring.

    teshh25, can I ask you something?

    Have you read the very first post? It lists many things, such as this:

    You can also GOOGLE Caseys config. It is an Autoexec file that lowers the settings on a lot of stuff and increased my fps by about 20.


    EDIT: I was not being a smart-ellick, or anything, just making sure you read it! X_D

    counter strike: source problem

    Everytime i try to play counter strike source a screen pops up saying "Only one instance of the game can be running at one time" i dont have counter strike, half life or day of defeat open. The only way i can fix it is if i restart my computer, does anyone know how i can fix this without restarting twice a day?

    Yes, try this:

    Open up Task Manager ( the CTRL+ALT+DEL program ) and go to the "Processes" Tab. Look for a process named "Hl2.exe" or something along those lines. If it's there, then right click and terminate/end it.

    Then try opening it.

    Well, I've noticed that the Radeon Mobility Series Drivers can be confusing as they aren't listed sometimes, as with a friends laptop.

    I've also heard that "certain laptops can't use 'generic' video drivers, you must go to the laptops makers website to find those drivers".

    What kind of laptop do you have, anyway? I can't find much information on that specific adapter, but... here's what I can find:
