    hey there. i'm running half life 1 (you know, the 1998 game) on my laptop and for some reason, it runs way too fast. i run around the maps at high speed, sound clips stutter, monsters are too quick, etc. i've had this problem before with tactical ops, however that was a relatively easy fix (i just typed cpuspeed=1800 into the console). im pretty sure its a problem with my cpu being too fast for the game and the game not being able to time itself properly. however, the tac ops fix i mentioned above doesn't work for half life. any one got any ideas?:confused:

    AMD Sempron 3100+ (1.8GHz)

    SiS M760GX 64MB video card (supports openGL and direct3D)

    i wouldnt say its your cpu been too fast, mines a 3700 (2.2ghz) and it runs fine.
    you can never have too much power, only too little power.

    see if theres any updates or patches.
