  1. Hello All, I've recently got back from vacation and decided to play my Favorite First Person Shooter "CrossFire". So every thing loads up all good and i go in game, so im playing just fine with around 60-70 fps the all of a sudden BOOM 15 fps for about a minute or so then the screen pauses for 15-30 seconds then its back to 60-70 fps again, I have never had this problem. If you could please give me any suggestions? Thanks alot :)

    Windows Vista Home Basic
    AMD Athlon(tm) Processor LE-1600
    1 GB of RAM
    NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430

    hmmm, can you tell and check if any extra process starts up when the fps has dropped?

    Or you can try re-installing the game.

    Check if there is no other program running in the same time like Browser, Downloaders, Music Players, Video Players and other memory consuming program.

    Check also you graphic card configuration and game configuration too.

    What does that even mean?

    You should uninstall your old drivers and update.

    the NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE is not even a graphic card, but an integrated graphics chipset on your motherboard. its amazing you would get 60-70 FPS to begin with. any interruption such as an auto update program, browser etc would easily take your FPS down to nothing.

    Graphic Card settings on windows and game graphic settings. High, medium, low etc...

    After being away your programs are likely downloading larger updates to catch up.

    Anti Virus
    Anti Spyware
    Media players maybe? who knows what you got on your rig, I bet it goes away in a few days, how often is it happening? Once a day? every 10 min or so?

    I just noticed this is 4 days old his problem is probably gone :)
