  • BS FPS Lag!?

    Hey guys. Not sure this is the exact are that is correct for this so move my post if necessary!

    I'm having really strange FPS problems. It's spiking (not my ping) from like 11 to 30s and from yellow to red like a trance strobe light. I've been playing TF2 for MONTHS and never had this problem save the past two days. I've restarted the computer, defragged TF2, checked my internet connection with another laptop and the game worked just fine. I've even been playing the same servers with the same people and checking all the servers in my favourites and no one else is experiencing these issues

    I have an Asus Intel 2 Duo Processor p8400 320 GB 4GB ram 5100 AGN Nvidia Geforce 9800m gt Graphics card running Windows Vista.

    Any suggestions? It really blows and won't stop </3

    Thanks for reading this.

        I would do that first. A can of air is the best method of cleaning out any trapped dust. Never use a vacuum cleaner.

            Uh, well most people don't have one of those. I've only held one in my hands briefly as I've never used one before.

            Anyways, use a can of air blow the dust out and onto the ground (away from your computer), then you can use a portable mini-vac to pick up the dust.

              Or better yet bring the case outside and blast it there.

                  Actually, if he could put his rig in a unheated part of his house, then he wouldn't have to worry about overheating. Plus it would be better than having moisture and melted snow ruining his system outside. ;)
