Hi guys I am new to this site .. I have Command and Conquer 3 running on my computer
it runs Flawlessly... but the past 3 days during Gameplay every 20-45 seconds the game
will Stall for about 10seconds then run super fine for the next 20 seconds

I tried disk clean norton utilitys refreament the drive... I open the box and un dust it out
I dont know whats wrong I did a video card and memory plus hard drive check...and everything is in the green...

I even took off fire wall. and did a virus check..and this is happen in normal gameplay...meaning im not connected online..
if it never did this before, and always ran fine for 3 months...im thinking its a video card problem
but the computer says its ok....any ideas would be great thanks

Hi wizard1325 and welcome to bleepingcomputer.com.

It would help if you could supply some information about your computer.

What is the make and model, if it is a custom build what is the motherboard?
How much RAM do you have?
How big is you hdd and how much free space do you have?
What graphics card are you using?

Is this something that has just started? Have you made any recent changes to your computer?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
