Well I'm new to this forum.
A clan member told me about it so here are my questions.
1. On my game BF2, my ping is average of 30-40. On CoD, it's like 50-60. But on CoD2, I'm at 200.
I dont know why this is happening. I tried puttin my sound on medium. It lowered lag a bit, but not enough.
I dont think it's the server because i play on German servers a lot on Bf2 ( live in US) and i have the lowest ping.
2. EVerytime my comp freezes, i have to do the power button to turn it off. When i reboot it, it says drives not found.
I've fixed this b4, by waiting an hour and resatrting it, and only restarting it, but i want it to stop with the crashing and all that.
So plz help me with these problems.
PS: I have SBC Yahoo DSL running at 3 MBPS

Hi Eddie4Lyfe,

I would try a couple of things:

EVerytime my comp freezes, i have to do the power button to turn it off. When i reboot it, it says drives not found.


This sounds like your hard drive is crashing. Back up your important data now. Take a look inside your computer and find out what kind of hard drive you have - then go here: Hard Drive Installation and Diagnostic Tools
A CMOS battery - the battery that holds your computers hardware configuration can also be going bad. Most batteries look like a nickel - or an oversized watch battery on your main board. You can find these at Radio Shack or even Wal-Mart.
Check your memory - Use Memtest86+ a free standalone diagnostic. This will let you know if you have a bad memory stick.

Try that first. If you have any questions, please ask.

Good luck,

rigel

Welcome back Eddie4Lyfe,

im no a computer guy and i dont know difference and they might be the same but
i meant my disk drives, the one where i put my CDs to play games and music
is that the same thing


So what I understand is your CD drive is working sometimes, and then sometimes not. Check your CDs to make sure they aren't scratched to a point that they may be the cause of the problem. Do all programs cds cause your system to lock up after being used for a while? Have you tried them in another computer?

You can buy/borrow a cd drive cleaning disk. Pop the disk in and it cleans your drive. Or, if all else fails, you can buy a new CD drive.

Also, you can ignore my earlier post. That references hard drive problems.

All the links on my signature are virus free. I, and many other people, have used those many times. If you think you may have viruses, I would recommend following this guide: Malware removal guide.
