  • Graphics Lag

    First off, I do not know if this is the right forum I'm posting in, please redirect me to a proper one if so.

    So, my computers a bit old, and I get graphics lag when I play PR on certain maps, such as Ramiel (Lots of buildings, it is the one I get most significant lag on) or Fallujah West.

    I've fixed it before, by cleaning my computer, except I did it in a not proper way.
    My main question is how do I clean my computer without causing damage to it (i.e. what tools I use, how I do it so on so forth).
    This is why I said redirect me to a proper forum, whether it be in or out of the Tactical Gamer forums. Thank you in advance.

    Cleaning up the case physically, or virtually (harddrives)?
    Posting specs on your PC, and your ingame settings may help to give a good baseline to measure from. Unfortunatly, usually the BEST way is to do a reinstall of the operating system, and starting again. Windows gets clogged up over a few months/years and sometimes using tools to clean your harddrive, registry, etc. just don't have the same effect.

    Some tools to help clean up, I would suggest:

    http://www.ccleaner.com/ For registry cleaning
    http://www.safer-networking.org/en/home/index.html For spyware/malware
    http://www.oo-software.com/home/en/p...FQzxDAodYFZVCA To defrag (Or just the windows defrag tool)

        Whatever you say. I did this before (cleaning/maintenance) as I said, and my computer ran like new.

        I'm getting a full upgrade (out with the old, in with the new) by at least this Christmas. It would be nice and would eliminate the lag I have now.

        This is meant to be physically cleaning.

          Well, you can clean out your fans, and heatsinks of dust. You could go overboard and replace the thermal paste as well on your CPU/GPU but unless you have a sandstorm around your PC I doubt it will do you much good. If cleaning dust bunnies from your computer makes a day and night difference something fishy is going on....
