I need some help...I just bought my self the MVP 2004 game for PC....Everything works fine until I want to play the stupid game....
Everything moves in slow motion from then on....And I can't figure out why.....
I'm using a Sony Vaio Notebook w/ XP and Intel Celeron.....
Any ideas? Please help! Thanks and Merry Christmas to you to!
Remember too that the Celeron is a budget chip. You won't get spectacular out of it like you will a Pentium (but you probably saved some dollars as a trade off).
Like they say above, post your specs (processor speed, amount of RAM, video card are good places to start). Likely, one of those components could be bottlenecking your system. Also, check the specs on the game box to see if your system doesn't meet one of the requirements.
One thing you can basically and quickly check without too much trouble is your Task Manager (press CTRL+ALT+DEL, then click on the Processes tab, click on the CPU column and see if you have anything running using alot of system resources, the higher the number the more of a system hog it is). Try this without running your game then start up the game and do it again to see if the game is hogging your system.
Hope some of this helps.
P.S. Whatever happens, I beg you, do NOT call that ripoff Geek Squad that Best Buy is running now. They charge megabucks for run of the mill repairs/diagnostics.
