(I know Superuser isn't for games, but I suspect this issue technically stems from a non-gaming problem. Since it's likely computer hardware or software related, I figured it's relevant.)
Hey guys, I have an M17x-R1 with the following hardware:
- Single GTX 260m with 280.19 beta drivers
- 4gb ram
- Q9000 OC'ed to 2.4ghz
- Win 7 64bit
For whatever reason, certain games that I have are experiencing extremely poor performance. The 3 games I've noticed this on are the Battlefield 3 alpha trial, Just Cause 2, and Brink. I can't even start playing the game because I'm getting 1 frame per second in menus and intro videos.
I'm able to play most other games (Battlefield: Bad Company 2, ESIV: Oblivion, TF2, Monday Night Combat, EVE Online, Dead Space, Left 4 Dead, etc.) all at max settings with good framerate.
Any ideas on what might be the cause of this?
