CPU Speed decreasing when playing games?

Q: CPU Speed decreasing when playing games?

Hi, I am using an HP Envy 15t-j100 laptop, and I noticed that every time I play games, my CPU speed drastically decreases from 3.3gHz to 1.8gHz. Can anyone explain to me if this is normal, or if there is any way to fix this? My laptop is always set to Maximum Performance, and it is plugged in. Thank you so much

Preferred Solution: CPU Speed decreasing when playing games?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a dual monitor setup and I try to keep my downloads running on one of my monitors (with bit torrent or just regular downloads) while I try to play a game, even an offline game, and my download speed will immediately drop to say 20 or 30kbps where it was downloading at least 200kbps not a second before I was running the game. If I minimize the game I can watch the download speed dramatically return to normal 200kbps, putting the game back on top of course drops it back down. What the heck is going on? How do I fix this? I've already tried reformatting. Thanks in advance for your help.

Just recently I started to have a problem where my processor speed would drop from its usual standpoint (1.9GHz) to this (600MHz). I can't play any games with it all the way down there and I have no clue what is causing it. I have never had this problem before and the only significant changes I have made recently would be a change to Spyware Doctor Antivirus as my main Anti Spyware/Etc program.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to help me out with this problem.

A few days ago my internet started really acting up. Not the connection to the router, the speed would slow dramatically at random points and then come back up to normal speed.

I could deal with this except for the fact that I run youtube.com/grimandjakegames, a gaming YouTube channel. This problem has made me unable to play any online games without the internet connection failing. It will run fine for a while but then all of the sudden it just stops and then I'm disconnected from the server.

I've contacted my ISP but they don't seem to know anything and just had me reset my modem which did nothing.

The reason I am so confused is because nothing changed from when the internet was working fine to when it wasn't. This lead me to believe it was the ISP's problem but maybe some of you could help.

If you need any more info just reply below and I will try to help you out as best I can.

Thanks,
Hicoga

Hi,

I run my computer off an SSD.

But I have 2 Samsung 2TB drives for storage.

I regularly have to transfer filed from one 2TB drive to the other. Until not it has always been a fairly speedy process.

The problem I am having:

I am transferring a large file (5GBish) and for the first 5/10 seconds it transfers between 120 MB/sec - 150 MB/sec, but after that it suddenly starts slowing down, until about a minute later it's sitting at around 20 MB/sec.

I'm sure this never happened before? What is going on?

See pic for example:

Maybe there are many files which is small enough to decrease your transfer rate .

Hello, I have a question. My Lenovo Yoga 720 15.6" doesn't overheat, although I've noticed something rather odd. When I play Fifa 17 with the charger plugged in, the fans are very loud and the laptop gets pretty hot. When I play Fifa 17 on battery only (charger not plugged in) the fans are quite silent and the laptop doesn't get hot at all. Why is that? For all I know, I would expect the exact opposite...Thanks in advance!Kind regards,Tijs

A:Lenovo Yoga 720 15" : hot when playing games on charger, cool when playing games on battery???

Hello all,

I've been having a few problems with my laptop since I bought it. The problem mainly occurs when I'm playing a game (usually xcom: enemy unknown or deus ex HR at the moment) but has occurred when I'm browsing the internet (albeit far less often). The BSODs appear to be random but I'm using a blue tooth mouse and have noticed the BSOD will usually happened if I'm using it. I've also noticed that my laptop screen with black out for a split second on games that are quite graphics intensive for my system.

Its been frustrating me a lot so I reinstalled and fully updated windows 7. The GPU drivers are all up to date also.

I've attached the SF file that is required and would greatly appreciate any help.

Thanks for your time

So I recently opened my CPU because it was lagging and I thought maybe a little clean up might do the trick. So I softly brushed the drivers inside the CPU to get some dust off. However, when I turned on my PC, it seems that whenever I watch videos or play games, a loud crackling sound comes out from my speakers. I don't know what is causing this.

I have tried disabling my drivers (sound and display) but to no avail. However, if I mute the volume on my sound driver, the sound disappears. Which lead me to the conclusion that it might be a conflict of sound and display.

Since the problem only occured when I opened my CPU and cleaned it, it might also be a wiring problem or something.

Can someone help me on this?

Hello sevenforums Community,
since about month im getting Bluescreens, which never happened before in 4 years.
It usually get the when i watch streams on twitch (which didnt happen since 1 week on my account though) or currently while playing League of Legends.
But they dont come every game, so i can for example play 4 games in a row and nothing happens or i get 3 one them in one game. Also they can come at any game time. It is kind of random to me how they appear.
The last two days I got about 7 so i really need help from u guys.
In the last two weeks i always got this message (STOP : 0x00007A (0xFFFF6FC50023598,0xFFFFFFFFC000000E,0x000000002A991880,0xFFFFF8A0046B30BE) ) without a sound and the pc didnt instantly reboot.
But the last days the Blackscreen stayed like 4 second so i couldnt see the error message on it, so i dont know if the error changed but there was this buzzing sound.

I really appreciate help (and sorry for my english skills ^^)

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.

I just updated and rebuilt my PC and have reinstalled Win 7 64 bit and am constantly getting a BSOD while using the PC. Specifically while downloading/installing/playing games. I have also had the error occur just while surfing the internet.
From the program Blue Screen Viewer it seems to be caused by ntoskrnl.exe+7f1c0 and/or ntoskrnl.exe+7e769
I can not find any solution to fix this issue, I have updated drivers, I have ran the Microsoft memory checker, , I have changed out my memory, tried 2 other video cards, tried two different wireless network cards, now on wired connection, I even changed motherboards, got the errors on both SSD and HDD. The only things I haven't changed out is the PS and CPU, since I am using the PC to write this I am ruling out the CPU as the issue.

I have used Memtest86 and prime95 to test the memory and CPU, nothing is coming back with errors or issues. I did run driver verifier and got two .dmp files for some specific files but not sure what to do with those now. They are included in the attachement

It seems to be software/driver issue but I can not figure it out.

Any help would be great, thanks!

What happens is the system with will just freeze. Occasionally the audio that was playing with stutter infinitely like a skipping CD. Rarely I notice the system will stutter once or twice before totally freezing, happens in a couple seconds. But mostly, it just stops. When it freezes, the only option is to hard reboot.

I have had this problem for quite some time, probably about a year or two. At first I really didn't notice any consistency in the crashes, seems totally random. Some times it would freeze while browsing any random page, be it videos, forums, ad ridden or ad free. Any browser as well; Chrome, Firefox, IE. It also crashes when playing some games although not other games that have higher requirements; e.g. Guaranteed to crash, probably within 10 mins, if I play '8-bit Boy' on Steam (about as low res as implied) but I can go on 4 and 5 hour binges on Elder Scrolls Online or Skyrim with no crashes.

Hello guys. So here is my issue i dont really know how to specific it further then this still hope it will help.

I have been getting BSOD for a while now and it's getting to the point i cant do a single thing on the computer. I did the config for dumps and so on and ended up with this RAR file with all the info i assume. I mostly get the bluescreen when i try to watch anime etc on googlechrome. It never works it's a matter of seconds before the BSOD comes. But when watching it on other browsers like opera it works just fine "mostly" even there it bluescreens from time to time. And then there is when it's most fatal, Playing onlinegames. Whenever I play online games like World of warcraft, League of Legends, Heroes of Neweart etc etc etc i risk getting bluescreens. It differs very much from game to game how often the bluescreens appear and it seems to not be preformance related since sometimes i play constantly for hours when maxing out games and pushing the computer to it's limits when it comes to frames. And still the bluescreen lies in dorment waiting for a more suitable interrupt for me. From the looks of it the bluescreen is related mostly to my operatingsystem more then commponents after i looked at the dumpfiles via "Bluescreenviewer".

I'm pretty clueless when it comes to this and i hope you guys can help me with this. also this is my first post so I maybe did this typical "bad thread", Still i hope this will get me atleast closer to... Read more

Windows XP SP2
AMD Athlon 1750 Mhz
1.00 GB of RAM
NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200

So if you guys can help me, it would be greatly appreciated thank you!

It doesn't happen often but sometimes it freezes for a second while loading a certain game which works fine on another day and gives BSOD. Sometimes it happens after I've loaded the game and am in the moment of playing. My hardware is more than enough for the games I run and I even run them on low-mid even though I can manage high settings. The games I usually run are CS:GO, League of Legends and Modern Warfare 3 [rarely play; received 1 BSOD while loading it]

I've uploaded my dump files.

Thank you.

problem
At first games that my gf played run like 10x the normal rate (guess). cheap games like divinci code and some other ones i cant remember. at first i thought it was because my computer is better then what they were design to run on but now some of my games do it. Madden 08 , GTA San Andreas ( only when inside) runs fine when outside running around the city. The games play at a super fast rate. amost like the game is on speed. But then others play fine like Rise of Nations ( which is a few yr old) Crysis, GRAW, And so on.

what i tired
disable crossfire
dumb down the graphics and upscaled them
cant think of anything else.
I had this problem b4 i upgraded to my current setup.

old setup
motherboard = asus a8r or somthing
cpu = amd 64x2 2.2ghz
ram =1gb of great value
vid = x1950 pro


current Setup
Motherboard = Asus m2r32-mvp
Cpu = Amd 64x2 6000+ (3.0) dual core
Video card = 2 x1950 pro 512mb ati radeon running in crossfire
ram= 4 1gb oxz ati crossfire cert. ram
os = Win xp pro sp2


I tried to included everything i could think of.
it's just a weird problem i never heard of a computer being to good for a game.
If anyone can help me i greatly appreciate it.
I wonder if its the processor because if it is it makes me a little worried about upgrading to the new amd 3.0ghz quad core when ever that comes out.
 

A:Some Games Run Like they Are on Speed

The problem is with your CPU scaling its frequency according to load.
Solution: look for a game patch or set your CPU to fixed speed

Hi, I have been wondering whether or not there are some options you can do with windows 10 that allow you to maximize performance, even if it doesn't look as nice. I just want to be able to run my games smoothly until I can get a better computer. Can anyone recommend me anything?

Hi folks,
I'm having some fun and games with my processor at the moment, as it has decided it no longer wants to run at its full speed.
The CPU I have is an Athlon 1800+. I understand this runs at just over 1.5 gig. However, when I start the PC, it is showing up on the boot-up screen as 1150MHz.
Now, I'm no great shakes when it comes to techy stuff, so I've no idea why this is happening.
I recently upgraded my mobo and CPU, and had them professionally installed. When the fella put them in, everything was running dandy and the CPU was showing up its correct speed on start up. It just seems to have been in the last couple of days that its decided to slow down. Can any of you kind folk help me out with a way to get my system back up to speed??
I'm running Windows 98, with 320 MB of RAM

I have 2 computers in my house ones my dad's and the other is obviously mine. Um I've come across a problem with networking them so that my friend and I can play NFSU2 over the network. There's one small problem however they can't "see" each other. I can get AOE2-3, Rise of Nations, and one other game I can't remember right now work direct ip and with AOE3 game scanning similar to what NFSU2 uses and work just fine. Question is why won't it work for this game?

I've seen posts regarding similar problems with this game but nothing I extracted from them for this problem worked.

So can any one help as you can see from my computer specs I'm dual-booting Windows 7 RC currently. I haven't tried it from this OS yet.

My dad's PC has got Norton Antivirus 2009 which among my friends is the ultimate sacrilege to the computer industry. They call it bloatware and admittedly the computer takes a while to boot; but there are other factors involved with that. I think that's pretty much it besides AVG free and PC user firewall on my XP machine. Any suggestions?

Oh, I disabled all of these and it still didn't work even after configuring windows firewall through the warning pop ups you get when a program does something for the first time.

Change properties to properly So I'm having a few problems with my computer that have built up from accidentally clicking on ads and going to bad sides, when I go to IE11 for the first time of the day after turning on my computer my add ons aren't there and it tells me my add ons are disabled and to choose add ons, the same thing happens after closing IE11. Along with this when I go to watch a video on hulu or you tube it says I can't watch it because I need the latest version of flash player when I already have it and it works in google chrome, though after I get my add ons on Internet explore to show up by letting videos play on google chrome it works. Now I can't even watch hulu at all but you tube works as long as the add ons are there. I don't know if this has anything to do with it, I'm just trying to give the detail I was told to give. Another problem I'm having is choppy videos, especially with google chrome. IE11 isn't nearly as bad as google chrome, when I play videos there it's really really choppy and recently the sound started getting choppy, I should be able to watch videos in both browsers with no choppiness at all you know? With that, the only other symptoms I can think of is logging in to a site and posting in forums not working in IE anymore and speed, I noticed a youtube video actually had to stop and load for a bit (I know crazy right?)

Hi borneo and welcome to TSF.

Can you download and run Speccy for me. Once the program has gathered the required information, go to the top of the Speccy window and do File>Publish Snapshop. Click Yes when prompted. Now copy and paste the URL address that it gives you to your next post.

Also, if this is a desktop, can you post what Power Supply Unit you have? Please include the make/ model and wattage.

Problem 1:

When I click on a streaming file, for example, something here, it plays in a browser window. It gives me the option to play in real player, but I would like to make it default so it always plays in Real Player. It just started doing this too, it used to be default. Some sites play in Real Player however. It's usually when you click on mp3 links that it plays in a browser window.
Problem 2:

I've only experienced this on www.dmusic.com . When I want to play a stream from there, it brings up an error message that reads:

"Connection to server has timed out. You may be experiencing server problems."

What the heck does this mean? And how do I get it to work?
*Note- dmusic plays in Real Player, and the error messge comes from Real Player, not Internet Explorer.

Just a side question, my browser's been slower lately. But, we've been experiencing phone static, so do you guys think that's what is causing slow downloads? It's average speed is 60-90, and it was 180-300+ before. So, I'm lost there too.
Any help will be greatly appreciated, as my life revolves around my media files.

Hello . What I need is a little advice...

I noticed that the computer was running slow so I clicked on my computer and went into performance and saw that only 37% resources were free. I called Dell and they made me go into msconfig and had me UNCHECK many many items so that all the icons that were in the system tray are now gone. No big deaL but we have noticed that some of the games that I downloaded from the web no longer work!. Like a game called Snood. I downloaded it again but to no avail. It says you have to have Direct X version 7 to play the game but upon searching my files I have version 8. Do I download their version and overwrite the newer version with the older one??? Will this screw anything up??? What to do. I can tell you that now when I right click on my computer and look into the performance tab there is now 83% resources FREE. Wow. But what do I do with the games that no longer work. What could be the reason that they no longer work? I even RECHECKED all the boxes that they had me recheck just to see if they would work and they still do not work??? What could have happened. I even did a system restore to the day before the unchecking of the startup items and still they did not work. Once again what do you suggest I do and how do I correct it.? thanks. Once again everything seems OK and even faster but these few games like "HOUSE of THE DEAD" and SNOOD which were downloaded from the web no longer work. Everything else is fine.

A:games not playing

Hiya

Is this the version that you have of SNOOD:

http://www.snood.org/

It looks like a Demo, so maybe the timer has run out. Did it have a 30 day expire date?

Do you have anything left in the startup? Lets have a look:

Go to Run and type MSINFO32
On the left choose Software Enviroment, then Startup Programs. Copy/paste the list here.

Also, go here and download AddAware http://tomcoyote.com/lsindex.html

Download and run, ensuring that Deep Registry scan is enabled. Remove all except any references to Web3000 or new.net. If you're unsure, copy/paste the list here.

Also, whilst you're there, download and install RefUpdate to get the latest updates. Just click Connect.

Installing Direct7 over 8 won't do any good. In fact, not sure if it'll let you.

Also, where did you get HOUSE of THE DEAD from?

Regards

Hello, Rose. I searched for your problem, and found a topic with a user having almost exactly the same problem, even for the same game. Here is a link to that topic

http://forums.techguy.org/games/1364...en-trying.html

The user claims they uninstalled then reinstalled Shockwave, and it fixed the problem. But...

You may wish to check this link FIRST http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/welcome/ to see if your Shockwave player is working and or up to date. IF yours is working, you will see the animation on the page, if not, it will ask you to install the Shockwave plugin. I clicked it myself, and it says that I need to install the missing plugin (Shockwave).
