Should my HL2 run like utter garbage on an ATI MOBILITY RADEON 9700 512MB RAM 2xP4 3.4 CPUs. A year ago this was a damn nice setup, or is it a Spyware/Adware/other problem? Thanks.

It could just be your machine. Mine doesn't like it, for reasons unknown. (please note, one stick of RAM fried recently, so I'm running 512 atm). If anyone has any idea of how to fix it, shoot. I have already: got latest drivers (also tried the latest Omegas, no success), unpacked all the GCFs, so no on-the-fly unpacking, and turned all settings to low. Still, I suffer from skipping audio and video. Which makes no sense, as this rig runs Far Cry pretty damn high.

Ive found when switching to a soundblaster audigy from the onboard audio ,the game smoothed out considerably.


Funny thing is overclocking my video card for this game didn't seem to do squat either .
So i'm thinking it's software related somehow,
Alot of people have the same problem.
