Threaded View
   I've had my dv9k for a while now... at first it performed just
fine, however, here as of late i've been getting frame rate drops
every 15-20sec while trying to play day of defeat or counter strike.
my FPS starts in the 70s and dives to 9fps for about 10 sec. then back
up to mid 60s... then repeat process. I've reloaded my OS 2 (once to
get rid of vista ) times, and there are no errant programs running to
my knowledge. I'm at my wits end here.

Well I don't know what dv9k is? Is that a game perhaps? So what does the
Task Manager report while the frame rate drops? Click on the Process tab
and sort by CPU percentage. That will clue you in as to what is eating
up the processing time. That is where I would start anyway.

Btw, I love AnVir Task Manager over the Windows Task Manager. Although
it isn't free ($24.95). But the trial version works I think for a time,
although I am not sure. I am not using the Pro version ($29.95), but I
might be here in the future.

You might need to defragment your drive.  You can try the MS
defragmenter, but I suggest a third-party defragmenter since the MS
defrag is crippled.

Also, check that your drive is not using the Indexing Service.  Check
what you have running in background using Task Manager.  You might have
an application that is doing 'whatever' every few minutes.

Run Disk Cleanup to remove choked temp file folders.  Check your startup
programs in msconfig, or use check the entries in
Hkey_local_machine/software/microsoft/windows/currentversion/run and
make sure you know why each is running.  Delete the registry keys for
those items you KNOW should not or need not run.  Recheck the same path
in Hkey_current_user/software....
