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.

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 already installed CS, and inputed the CD KEY, I can play it and all, but I lost the number, is there a way to know the cd key?

A:Counter Strike CD key problem


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...

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.

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.

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.

A:Counter strike 1.6 Another Strange Problem


Read other 3 answers

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??

I recently installed Counter-Strike Source on my laptop. When I double-click the icon on the Desktop, it loads up and it shows the menu screen for a millisecond, and the the screen goes black. The funny thing is that when I hover with the mouse over the places where the options are expected to be, I hear clicking and I sometimes even hit the Quit button and the game closes. I find it kind of amusing, except I can't play.
I tried uninstalling the game and then re-installing it 3 times already. I also updated the drivers of the Graphics card (Intel Chipset 945GM). I am running Windows XP Professional with 2GB of RAM. I have DirectX 9.0c. I think it's something to do with the settings of the laptop because I even installed it on my dad's computer (it worked fine) and copied most .cfg files of the game.
Has anyone seen anything like this and knows how to fix it? Thanks.

A:problem with playing counter-strike

It looks like you're running on DirectX v7.0, when v9.0c is available. It looks like your processor and graphics card are much below par for very graphic intensive games, are you talking about Counter-Strike: Source? Because I would've thought that setup would not cope very well if that's the case.

There's always the matter of having the most up-to-date graphics drivers, if you're going to install newer ones, uninstall your older ones first. Do a Google search for your specific graphics card drivers.

I noticed my FPS dropping from 100 (Which is very normal with a GeForce3 on a Athlon 1600+) to 60-70 even if I remove vert sync and all those things!

Also, my choke is always at 100 during the game, and my ping is around 30.

When there is some action (shooting, moving at spawn...) my ping raises to 1000.

Is there anything I could do to fix this?

(I tried re-installing my video drivers didn't change anything).

What server do you use? This is about a server where the ping never goes above 60:

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.

I am trying to play counter strike but everytime i set up my controls and go in to play it resets my controls to something else. For instance it is not even being reset to the defaults...i do not have the ability to buy or jump or anything it clears almost everything...i have gone even gone into my config.cfg file and edited it but for some reason everytime if try to play...even load a net game it clears all of my settings out. Please please help me...i will call anyone who knows how to fix this problem no matter if it is long distance or not...thanks--schlup

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

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. I played the game online at my friends house the other day, and it was so awesome. For the past 2 days I've been trying to get this to work, but nothing yet. I've looked at tons of tech ...
