I am having problems, Im playing with all the settings on low, I start playing and all is running fine then the computer gets slower and slower and the game starts
lagging but all of a sudden its gone again, this happens every 5min or so, I have done virus scans, adware, defragmented, anyone please got any solutions?
Are your video drivers up to date? What kind of RAM do you have and how fast is your hard drive (5400RPM, 7200RPM)? That game is really demending on the computer. It could also be that your processor or GPU are a little too slow for it.
To find out how fast your hdd is, I'd just google your laptop make and model, and figure out what kind of drive comes built in. And yes, you should probably uninstall the Omega drivers before you install the (much more stable) Catalyst drivers. Also, do you have Automatic Updates, a virus program, or any unneccesary programs or services running in your background? If you have a virus program like AVG or Nero installed, it might kick in every now and then in order to be using "real-time protection". Real-time protection, my a$$! Virus programs SUCK!!! I'd do a quick check to see what's starting up with your computer by going to Start > Run > "msconfig" > Startup. Then, I'd uncheck any programs that you'd prefer to not be running at your computer's startup. Good luck! See you in Battlefield 2! :grin: (P.S. my username is codeMONARCH)
omega drivers wont work for BF2 thats the problem, i tried too cause they are better :sayyes:
Yes uninstall them or use driver cleaner (http://www.drivercleaner.net/) to get writ of them and then install the catalysts. You can over install but i dont recommend it with Omega drivers cause thers some other stuff attached to them.
Once the catalyst drivers are installed u should be able to play
right click on my computer
go to properties
double click the first one of the 2(if there are 2)
go to driver
press uninstall and follow onscreen instructions to uninstall
and install the catalyst 5.8 drivers
Your pagefile should probably be a system-managed size. Two factors that determine the performance of virtual memory while using intense applications or games: 1) It is good if the pagefile is on a different drive that that which your games/applications are installed on. 2) The faster the hdd, the better the performance. If one of your drives is 5500 rpms while the other is 7200, you should use the faster drive (unless, of course, the games are installed on that drive. If you should choose to set a custom pagefile size, then I would recommend that it is between 200 and 500 mb.
