well one thing i said had a little merit anyway.  when they were running 100%, was the color set to 16 or 32 bit? maybe that's why?
Bit-depth was at 32 bit, and the nVidia control panel was disabled, just as it is now. The only thing that has changed is the hardware (out->Sound Blaster Live!, in->Sound Blaster Audigy SE and their respective drivers).

Why not upgrade to the very latest drivers?
The download just finished last night, and the drivers are up to date as of this post (haven't tested the emulators yet).

--Edit--
It looks like that did it. :happy:

They all ran at 100% in this very OS in the past, it just started after the wipe.

550MHz AMD Athlon
352 megs SD ram
nVidia GeForce 3 (64 megs, PCI slot)
Windows XP, service pack 2
I wonder. :tongue:

Yeah, moron me put the card in the broken PCI slot. :blush: However, I'm occasionally getting static, so I'm going to get those 63.4 meg drivers anyway to see if that helps. I'm also going to re-wipe the machine, since I'm not entirely convinced it's clean...

Drivers installed are dated August 12, 2o07. It is version 93.71

Same drivers I was using before the wipe, too...

Well, I disabled it, rebooted, re-enabled it, rebooted, and then tried it out. Nothing. Just as sluggish. :sad:

get Lavasoft Ad-Aware, run it, and see what happens.
Did that last night, 26 tracking cookies found and erased.

Try disabling/renabling DDraw acceleration and see if that helps.
To sound like an idiot, where would this option be?

I wiped my OS the other day, because I was a moron and thought that something pre-existing was preventing this new sound card from working. But now with a fresh OS, all of the emulators seem to be running pretty sluggish. Kega Fusion, Zsnes, all of them. All games are running noticeably slower, and I don't know why. Yesterday I thought I got myself infected with something because I had Java/script enabled while browsing (this was before I got noscript).

Any ideas?

What kind of gamer are you guys?
I'm a very specific gamer. That being, I know what I like, and I pass on the garbage.

Guess what! It has returned again! It should also be evident with the link on the menu bar near the top of the page. :happy:

General Discussion / $@!*&% downloading
« on: June 23, 2008, 12:58:59 PM »
You'd think this would be easy, right? Use something other than a browser, easy to resume, can continue files long after a nice snooze. Except for that resume part. An entire night of downloading 63 megs worth of drivers go for naught, as the filesize decided to reset itself. :wtf: Yep, back to 0. Six hours of downloading for absolutely nothing.

[spoiler=Vulgar rant]Why the fuck can't these fucking companies make these fucking filesizes smaller because of people that have to use dialup?![/spoiler]

Well, so much for listening to music. The connector to the sound card just died. Can't get any kind of signal now.

What motherboard do you have?
According to CPU-z:

Manufacturer: PCCHIPS
Model: K7ASA, V10

I'm asking so I can see if there are jumpers for the audio (which is highly likely).
I saw no jumpers near the sound, but there are jumpers at the bottom of the board.
