  1. I have ATI radeon 9250 with the last driver. When i run CS i get full FPS and no freeze. After 5min of gaming (online or LAN) it start to spike and freeze. Looks like my PC is doing something... I look to my task manager while i was gaming online i see that my cstrike.exe has 0-1 usage, and SYSTEM had 40 and Idle system Process 50-80.. anyone knows why my computer lags on this very old game? only occrus with CS...

    I already did that and still same. But today i discover the source of my freeze and lag, I turned off my Soundcard and it boost my speedgame and FPS... also my SYSTEM process CPU usage drop. I guess its a problem with CounterStrike and my Sound card...

    I am using SoundMax for it.

    I'm no good with any computer stuff lol, but maybe you can try reformatting if you don't have any important stuff on your comp.
