70FPS to 20 fps after format? : solved


Recommended Posts

I have a VERY strange problem. I recently formatted my harddrive and reinstalled Windows XP SP2. After which my 70fps in COD1 dropped to 15-20fps(unplayable). I am running the exact same hardware setup and software setup as before. Nothing is different. Any ideas? The computer runs flawlessly as before, just my video card is acting up. The fps is horrible, and was great before the format and reinstall.

Specs: Dell Inspiron 8600

NVidia Geforce FX Go5200 64MB AGP 4X

Windows XP SP2

Forceware Version 78.11

Video Bios Version

Driver Version (downloaded from Dells site)

download driver and 'modified inf' file.

Extract driver, the copy the 'modified inf' file to that same folder. say yes to overwrite existing file.

run setup.


There are a few other more complex things you can do, but lets just try this and see what happens.
