Discussion in 'AMD Graphics Cards' started by neilsouth, Feb 12, 2006.
You did notice the 2gb ram right
actually no , but anyway if not enough memory it can make games stutter but you have enough so maybe hdd is too slow or old or whatever
Not sure if this makes any difference but heres my ram settings
So any1 knows for sure why games / something stutters , is it the hdd / ram ? would like to know if i should buy a new hdd cos i got stutter in fear and thats VERY nervbraking
I just realised you posted on rage3d boads aswell, I have the smae thing... we all have different graphics cards so can we narrow it down to nforce4 chipset drivers and IDE drivers?
okay fair enough.. i really cannot think what the problem could be, its not as if we all have crap hardware so this really shouldn't be happening
Ati cards have a default pci latency of 255, try lowering to 32 or 64 and also change/check your pci latency in the bios.
you can change your video cards latency using ati tray tools.
give it a shot
Bad IRQ sharing there
I thought that was for AGP cards and normal pci devices such as soundcards
but ill give it a go with ati tray tools and see what its like tomorrow.
What the hell damn ati tray tools keeps changing it back to Pci latency 16
i'd sell it to you for $25 if i had it, but i let one of the damn employees at work take a look at it since it didn't work in my computer and he never returned it... i'm starting to get really pissed now.
All by itself!
All better now? :lol:
No it's always been like that
No change , safe to say im rather depressed now ... raptor all irq's different aswell
Neil, I'm sorry you're gettign such crappy responses. There are a few people here that try and help and are intelligent, but by far the majority don't care about anything but themselves with their first response being "it's your fault!". What they fail to realize is many of us with issues are extremely intelligent, and don't come post here at the first sign of trouble - but only after much of our own testing. What's even more disturbing is poster's who tell you to do stuff, you've already indicated or have in your initial posts (memory) .
OK, I'm taking a different route and am actually going to try
* What CAT drivers are you using?
* Have you had the stuttering with every CAT release?
* Do you see ther stuttering while benching in 3dMark (2003 or 2005)? Skip 2006 since it's so hoggy, it'd be difficult to tell stuttering from the real test.
* Have you tried disabling CAT AI? Are you forcing FSAA/AF in CCC or not? Are you using CCC? If so, what version(s) of MS's .net framework are you using?
* Not sure on your mobo, but are you using your mem in dual channel mode? Is it 1, 2 or 4 mem modules?
* What memory timings are you using in the BIOS? Is 1T timing enabled or disabled?
I'm not sure I can nail down the issue, but I sure as hell will try and help.
jpinard best reply so far thanks lets go through that list now
* Ive tried cats 6.1 and 6.2 no change
* Pretty much but the strange thing is i never had stuttering when the system was first built
* I see it all the time in all my games and now my movies including xvids and divx
* Yep disabled cat ai - standard and high tried the different modes no change.. Ms .net 1.1 is installed and not using ccc i have tried using ccc no change
* yep dual channel both orange slots 1T timing tried 2T timing aswell
You can see here how many pages is going and still no resolution
Check this out
1.05GB of pagefile in use even with 2GB ram
if i turn pagefile off it still uses that much , there are barelly ANY services
or background resources being used 1.79GB free
PF use doesn't mean the paging file itself... your RAM counts as a paging area so thats why you see that.
A quick Google search should yield some info.
