Only on one part of COD 2, where you go to make the get away in the amoured vehicle after firing the machine gun from teh window, my video refresh rate / game slows to a crawl. All other levels to date run fine. Using a NVidia 6600GT card, 2 gig ram, and a Barton core AMD. Can't play past this ssection as I die during it as I can't move fast enough. Any help would be approciated. I have tried optimal setting, along with other refresh rates, etc, but nothing helps.

Hmmm, my specs are close to yours except that instead I have only 512mb of rombus RDRAM, but I have never had any slowdowns or lagging at all. I assume you've cleaned your machine of spyware and the like, defragged and such. What's your CPU info and OS? The only possible diff I can see would be CPU speed or "maybe" your virtual memory. If you don't run a page file try sitting your virtual memory to 1536 over 3084. But since this happens in only one part of the entire sp game i suppose it could be a faulty gamedisc??

Thanks for the response. I'm running XP pro, sp2 with an AMD Athalon Barton Core 2900+ My virual ram resides on a seperate drive all by itself and is system manged. No spyware on the system, tried 3 different scanners. Whn you mention fault game disk, what does that mean, as I thought everything loaded to the HDD.

I was thinking that there may be a fault on a disc that installs a file incorrectly onto your hard drive.(A long shot):) run dxdiag if you havn't already and see if there are any hardware or DX conflicts. You can also go to Drive C right click and go to properties tools and run a scan to correct or fix any errors on the drive. If your video card is dirty it could cause overheating and poor performance as well. You can also run msconfig and see if there are any applications running in the background that might cause any particular graphically intensive moment during a game to lag. Have you recently updated to any new video or sound card drivers? If so, try rolling them back to see if you notice any difference. Those are my suggestions. I'm not a tech but after living online and gaming for years and years these are things that I have picked up that helped me.:) I hope you can sort it out, good luck:)
