My computer runs very slow. If I want to watch youtube, the audio works fine, but the video behaves likes it's a bunch of pictures, so I'm not able to watch any youtube videos. Also, the case is the same for large computer games. Starcraft Brood War runs fine, however games like World of Warcraft, Team Fortress 2 and Starcraft 2 lag just as badly as youtube. The framerate is simply terrible.
I have tried:
Running Spyware scans (about 3 diff programs)
Optimizing/defragging the computer
Changing desktop appearance for best performance
Changing resolution to 800 x 600
Upgrading from Windows XP to 7 as a custom install (My Idea)
I've used "Canyourunit" and it says that my video card is able to run games like TF2 and WoW (no setting for SC2) and in TF2 I was far above the recommended settings. My audio is just fine however my video is very laggy. I have 2gb of video ram and I have an ATI Radeon X1950 GT video card and my computer has over 100GB of free space.
I have asked for computer help here before and I have gotten good response, so I'm asking for help as I don't trust any other forums. I would REALLY appreciate it if I got help. I am nowhere near a computer expert, but I know some of you guys are really good with computers. Any responses in this thread would be really appreciated.
