What is your Ping?

what are your FPS?

what are your system specs?

what type of internet connection do you have?

Comcast cable internet hey...


go to start/run/type *dxdiag* to get the specs.

1. Organize your servers by the ping your getting, join the lower ping servers.(lower the better)

2. Turn down your Graphics settings so you can get a higher FPS (higher the better)

3. Make sure your PC is healthy follow this guide i made.

Routine System Optimization (by LambofGod)

1. All Driver updates (examples www.ati.com , www.asus.com )

2. Windows Updates ( www.windowsupdate.com )

3. Full anitvirus scans with a program such as

AVG antivirus
http://www.download.com/AVG-Anti-Vir...g=pop.software

4. Full spyware scans w/ 2 diff spyware programs such as

Ad-aware
http://www.download.com/Ad-Aware-SE-...g=pop.software

Spybot
http://www.download.com/Spybot-Searc....html?tag=list

Windows Defender
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...PdOIPuUQ%3d%3d

5. Msconfig the startup (go to start, run, type *msconfig* go to the startup tab)

Now disable all the services that you do not NEED to have running. For example Adobe speed launch ect…..

You can also go to the tab services, then check the box *hide all Microsoft services*
And disable service there that you do not need

(this will not get rid of the programs, just stop them from starting up)

6. Disk cleanup

Go to Start, programs, accessories, system tools, disk cleanup.

Select the drive you want to clean.

After it scans the drive select all the boxes you want to clean files out of.

(usually all of them)

Click ok.

7. Check disk

Go to start, run, type “cmd”, make sure you are on your root drive (usually C:\), type “chkdsk /f”, type “Y” .

Then restart your system

*if you are not on your root drive type “cd C:\ “ assuming C:\ = your root drive*

8. disk defragmenter

Go to start, programs, accessories, system tools, disk defragmentor.

Select the drive you want to defrag and press “defrag”

(this may take a while)

Well assuming you have an ATI videocard you would go to that website and get the driver from drivers and downloads.

Defraging, rearranges the data on your hard drive disk.

more info can be found here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defrag

well one you go to start/run/ the type dxdiag

a box will come up and show you Processor speed, Ram, and There is also a display tab that will give you information on your videocard.

when i say root i mean the drive your Operating system is installed on.
its usually C:\ so go ahead with C:\ its a safe bet.

nope actually you Click on start. select run and in the run box you type

dxdiag



(you may have to click yes after that)
then a screen will come up like this


Basically copy all this information down for me, or take a screen shot and post it on the forum.

There is also a tab on that screen called display, click on that tab, and copy all your graphics card information down for me as well.

then we can get you a display driver.
