Counter Strike Speed Problem on AMD processor

Q: Counter Strike Speed Problem on AMD processor

I have an AMD turion 64X2 1.60 GHz processor and XP SP2 operating system. when i play Counter strike i run faster than other players. my laptop is one year old but i am facing this problem only from the last 2-3 weeks. and the speed keeps on varying sometimes its very fast and rarely at normal speed.

Someone said that turning one processor off by going into the BIOS will be helpful, is this the only solution? and if so then how to turn it off.

Preferred Solution: Counter Strike Speed Problem on AMD processor

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.

I Recently got a new graphics card. A gigabyte Nvidia GeForce 8400GS with 512mb GDDR2. I got this since my past graphics card died on me for some reason and now since i got this one i went back to play Counterstrike since it didn't work very well with my on board graphics. I went into a server and was only getting about 40-75fps where as with my previous card (An Asus EN8400GS 256mb DDR2) i could get upto 300 fairly regularly.

I know most of the codes
fps_max 101 (or in my previous case 350)
fps_modem 0
developer 1

So what am i missing to get it to go fast? The only thing i've changed since i had my hard drive is i gave away a 512mb ddr1 ram stick from my computer. I think i have about 2gbs ddr1. Yes i know its old but nothing else has changed. Also i have updated the drivers as well

What do i need to do?


A:Counter Strike FPS Problem

which counter strike are you trying to play m8, 1.6, source or some kinda online version, 300fps is way overboard, if you got that many fps the game would virtually be running in fast forward mode, you wouldn't be able to see anything and you would look like you're speed hacking, anyway 30fps is average, anything above is quite exceptional, doesn't seem to me that even havea problem.

Try reinstalling CS...

It's probably something in your config file, reinstalling should fix it, or you can look in the controls and check each one to see what the problem is.

A:Problem Counter-Strike

Hello CiuFuLiXx,
When was the last time you updated the driver's ?, you may need to update them. I would do that first and see how the FPS are then. Also is this Counter-strike on Steam ?, Below are the spec's you need. You may need to lower the setting's a bit to get a good frame rate. Post your result's, good luck.

Minimum: 1.2 GHz Processor, 256MB RAM, DirectX 7 level graphics card, Windows 2000/XP, Mouse, Keyboard, Internet Connection

Recommended: 2.4 GHz Processor, 512MB RAM, DirectX 9 level graphics card, Windows 2000/XP, Mouse, Keyboard, Internet Connection

Not another CS cd key thread!

This is from the second post of the OTHER CS CD KEY thread, courtesy of Atreides..

this should help:
"There is no registry editing support on this site... blah blah blah... Check out www.regedit.com for more info.

Goto Start then Run then type: regedit. Once inside it works just like Windows Explorer. Browse to:


Once here find [in the right pane] a field called: key.Click to expand...

Click on it, and look at it's 'value'.
...blah blah blah... Remember to backup your registry first... Blah blah blah... I'm assuming your using CS Mod for Half-Life. CS Mod doesn't need a CD-Key, but CS Retail does. If your using CS Retail, then try the above steps and it should be very similar to where the CS CD-Key is kept.Click to expand...

A:Counter Strike Config Problem

First of all, I'd turn off capslock.

Then, now we can have a look at your problem. When you setup your controls, do you do it through Counter-Strike, or through editing your config file?
What I suggest you do is make a file in your CS directory, give it a name of autoexec.cfg. Now in that file cut and paste all the stuff from your config.cfg file into it. Then go through it all and delete all the things not relating to your controls. Save this file (make sure it saves as autoexec.cfg, and not autoexec.cfg.txt). Then launch CS and type exec autoexec.cfg in the console. Hopefully it will load your settings.
If that doesn't work, then I suggest deleting you config.cfg file (or renaming it to a different name so you back it up). And then trying the first procedure again. That may fix it.
Other than that I'm not really sure. Although I bet a full reinstall of CS would fix the problem.
Another thing to check you be your Half-Life config (if you have the CS mod and not the retail version). Check all the setting are configured properly.
Hope this helps. Bye

Hey guys. I've looked everywhere, even on the steam forums and I can't find a solution to this problem!!

Basically, whenever I play CS 1.6 my internet will cut out every hour. This only happens when I'm playing the game, and never any other time. After I restart, everything is back to normal and I can play for about another hour and it'll cut out again. I don't get any error message, just the connection problem on the game screen, then it'll boot me out of the server which is normal. Nothing will work, including MSN Messenger, Firefox, etc.. but will go back to normal after a restart. If I'm not playing CS, my internet would be good to go until I turn this thing off. Sorry for so much detail I'm just trying to describe this as best I can.

Anywho, I've disabled the SPI Firewall in my router already, as well as the windows one... which someone else recommended to me and that has not fixed the problem at all. Any ideas??

Kay, so my problem is: I cannot hold/press my CTRL or SHIFT button while moving with WASD. I must STOP completely and wait a few seconds before I can use them. And if I try releasing it while in crouch or walk, it won't revert my movement back to normal until I release WASD. Which is honestly REALLY annoying. My keyboard is HP Wireless Keyboard (Model 5189URF). This problem also occurs during other games like America's Army, Maplestory, etc. Any help is appreciated!

the cleanest way to fix this is uninstall HL, reinstall and re-download CS, if you are using the mod version. If you are using retail, clean it all out and then re-install. And be sure you got all of the client patches...and not the server-side ones

I have the mod version of CS and i have the absolute strangest problem. I cannot use the left right up or down arrow keys for controls, i would have to change them manually in config.cfg. Once i do that i have my jump key as shift and basically when im in a game every time i hit one of thearrow keys i jump. This has been driving me nuts, i tried going to the default controls and they are still pretty screwy. My friend got a new computer and installed CS (mod) and hes having the same problem... know a fix?

A:VERY wierd Counter-Strike problem

Make sure you don't have any sort of background keyboard application running, that could do it. You could also try completely uninstalling Half-Life, deleting all the files in the HL folder, then reinstalling it.

Also, you can use W,S,A,D for up, down, left, right. In my opinion, it is much easier, as there are more keys surrounding them.

A:Problem with Counter-Strike and other games in XP

Read everything in this thread, particularly the second half of "Your Computer".

Download Adaware and update it, run the scan on your computer and let it delete everything it finds. Then run disk defrag and finally scandisk. Update all of your drivers, especially video and DirectX.

What speed of RAM do you have? 256MB is a pretty small size for gaming, the bare minimum really, so if your still on PC-100 or PC-133 SD-RAM an increase in size would help. If you have high-speed DDR 256MB is still a comfortable amount of RAM to have especially in the games your mentioning but doubling your RAM regardless would be a good way to increase performance...

It has no real bearing on this problem, but if you want to see some marked improvement in visual quality and speed in all games then you should look into upgrading your video card. The GeForce 4 MX is somewhat deceiving because it's basically a glorified GeForce 2 Ultra with newer DirectX functions.

EDIT: Hey, I just rebuilt a Pentium 3 866MHz machine with 256MB PC-133 and a GeForce 4 MX440 card in it...

So here's my problem. I will lay out what I did in full.
I bought CS:S, and installed all 4 discs onto my laptop. CS:S only, not HL or DOD.
I ran Steam, updated it, and downloaded CS:S from Steam. Then as I go to play CS:S, I get a loading screen with The Counter Strike: Source cover (the 2 guys with M16s) with a Loading ... in the bottom right corner, and then a black screen with white writing. If I press F4, 1 more line of writing comes up. The game closes when I press F10. The black screen looks like the attached image.
Then, the game freezes. I've tried to let it load for 2 hours, nothing happens.

I've tried everything in my power to fix this, and I can't...

From the beginning:

I got Half-Life about a week ago, and I installed it on my computer along with Counter-Strike. I got the patch upgrades and everything. It let me log on to "VALVe" and I could actually see the servers and stuff. It would never let me join a game to PLAY in it, because of "WSAENOTSOCK" or something. However, It did let me spectate in a few games. Now I reinstalled it, and I think my dad might have switched some of my networked settings to make it act weirdly. (By the way, my computer IS hooked up to a network if that helps)

After I reinstalled it, I found that I could no longer log onto VALVe, but merely attempt to connect and get 4 retries, where it would give up and bring me to the screen that shows the list of servers (although there weren't any servers because I wasn't even connected). I added my filters, and tried to click "Update" and it gave me an error at the bottom of the screen. Something like "Could not get list of servers" I've repeatedly reinstalled it...atleast 10 times? Yeah.

I think it's a problem with the network, maybe a DNS problem. Any ideas are welcome, even if you don't think it will work please post it.

A:Problem with counter-strike server

Check with your ISP to make sure you can host game servers. Alot of ISPs don't allow you to or force you to buy their best packages inorder to do so.

I tried setting up a dedicated server for Unreal Tournament and was unable to do so for this reason. *******s.

EDIT: They censored [email protected]? Political Correctness takes a turn for the worse.

EDIT EDIT: Incidentally, no one will know better how to run a dedicated server on your ISP than...well...your ISP! You could try contacting their tech support via email, or they may even have a Knowledge Base or FAQ where this question was answered already.
