Hello,

My game runs very slowly in any gamemode, FPS suffers greatly and goes down to as little as 7fps during firefights.

During installation the game recognized my system as "Great" in every field.

This is driving me crazy because I know this PC can handle this game even on high/medium settings.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! :)

Hi the king,
Welcome to Geeks To Go,

I'd suggest checking temperatures. Try CoreTemp and Speedfan. If they get high during graphics intensive gameplay, invest in a better cooling solution.

Open Task Manager and keep that open on the Resource Monitor, play the game. When you start to slow down during a firefight, alt tab back to Windows and have a look at what is using your system resources. Is the CPU usage high? Memory? Hard Drives? Network activity? Let us know.

Check to see if you have the latest drivers for your hardware.

Closing as many background tasks as you can. Especially those things next to the clock in the right hand side of the task bar. Obviously the Anti Virus and Firewall should be running but you might be able to close a few things off such as Windows Sidebar. I see you have Avast running, that is usually a good AV as far as resources go.

Lastly, lower the resolution in the games settings, lower shading, etc. This can help ease the load on your system.

I wrote a detailed guide HERE on speeding up your system.

Run Memtest
Got to your hard drive manufacturers website and run any applicable test tools they have available. There are some HERE, I don't know how reliable they are.

Try the suggestions above about Temperature, CPU, Hard Drive and memory usage, if the game or another process starts to use high amounts of resources, you could pin point the particular problem to a particular device. Otherwise its like stabbing in the dark.

Take some screenshots of anything you think doesn't look right. Post them here.

It depends on how much RAM do you have? Have a look in the Task Manager and Resource Monitor to see what particulary is using the memory.
How old is the Operating System? When did you install it?

There must be something using a lot of your memory if you have two gigs and you only have 854MB avaliable. (Even with Vista). Find out whats using it.
