Unsmooth graphics

  U10 19:58 14 Feb 2004

I've got a nvidia Geforce4 Ti4200 Graphics card and recently I've noticed that every now and then there's a slight pause in the graphics when I'm playing a game like Medal of Honor or Train Sim. After the pause the game continues properly. I've got the latest drivers and have a refresh rate of 75Hz. Have I got to change any settings to make the graphics run smoothly. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Reduce the resolution by one degree, and try it, not Refresh rate

Does that mean going from 1024x768 to 800x600? - seems a bit dramatic!

Have you got anything running in the background---this may take enough resources to cause the occasional stutter.

Also try reducing the detail levels in the games as an alternative to reducing resolution.

Bear in mind that if you get an improvement it might just be your pc's way of telling you its in need of bit of an upgrade.:o)))
