After not more then 5 minutes of play, UT2004 gets serious framedrops. Usally 30~40FPS, to 7~12FPS. When i bought this PC i had about 50FPS.
I have a 2ghz dual core processor from intel.
A Nvidia 8600M GT Video Card with 512mb video memory.
Super fast internet connection.
Here is what i tried to get rid of this problem:
Try playing offline and playing with less players online - FAIL.
Scanning my whole PC of virusses, malware and other **** - FAIL.
Checking CPU heat for a cause of the problem - FAIL.
Checking active processes that eat up CPU during play - FAIL, no proces that eats CPU that much.
Checking CPU - SUCCESS, the whole CPU is filled with....nothing? after not more then 5 minutes of play.
Updating all drivers of the whole damn notebook - FAIL.
Throwing the mouse around the room - FAIL.
Giving UT2004 a high priority in task manager - FAIL.
Disabling HID's in device manager - FAIL.
Calling Acer for warrenty repair - FAIL, they are stalling time so they dont have to repair my notebook.
More solutions i can try?
