Extreme low framerate during fmv/cutscenes in games

  1. Been having a problem with some menus/cutscenes in some games (dynasty warriors 4 hyper/warhammer 40000 dawn of war/need for speed most wanted/the matrix path of neo) having framerates measurable in spf (i.e. very slow.)

    The in-game graphics are fine, running smoothly at high quality settings, but certain cuts and menus jerk along sluggishly, not responding well to keyboard input.

    Have tried updating drivers/games, to no avail. Don't know what to try next.
    Any suggestions?

    Perhaps your system cannot handle the graphics..... you didn't post your specs.

    I thought that too until I checked his profile. I want to compliment Spooky Donkey for being one of the few new posters who bothered to fill out his profile. Unfortunately, I don't have a solution to his problem at the moment or I would have posted before.

    In checking some of the games he listed, some are not very demanding.

    But that means you left out some important details in the original post. I'm glad everything is fine now.
