  • Video Unstable With Games

    First off thank you for taking time to read my post, hopefully you can help me. Secondly my problem: I have a Nvidia Geforce 4 ti 4200 64mb. I am an avid gamer, in the past few weeks my video card has been skipping around the FPS in ALL of my pc games. For instance in counter-strike, I used to get 60.0 FPS but now it starts at 60.0 FPS and when i move or people come into my view it drops to 30.0 FPS and lower. Same thing in Battlefield:1942. I am positive i have all of the correct drivers installed. I have rolled back drivers, installed new ones, installed leaked ones, and now i am using the latetst one off of If anyone can do anything for me it would be greatly appreciated.

    Since it is happening to all of your games, it sounds like you may have something ugly running in the background. When it starts to get real bad, you might try ALT-TABing out of the game real fast and bring up the Task Manager. Hopefully you'll be able to spot whatever is sucking the life out of your system and take care of business from there.

        Since it is a newly occurring problem, pull the vid card and reseat it. While it is out though, clean and inspect the hsf on the card (and don't spin the fan with canned air). Also look at the hsf on the cpu, clean as necessary.

          In Counter-Strike, find the config.cfg file in your cstrike/HL folder and add the following command:

          gl_d3dflip 1

          This corrects the problem in the game in which, as the Readme puts it, "Direct3D Input Seems Lagged." It helped me with D3D, and gave me a performance boost on OpenGL too.
