#30 Low FPS in Q/A Help

Take off -high and -heapsize from your launch option and look into overclocking your CPU. There's plenty of guides you can google for your CPU to get you started. You should be able to get a bit over the 3.5 you mentioned. Don't worry too much about overclocking. As long as you can follow a reputable guide and can realize what you should be doing from it, than it's pretty hard to damage your hardware.

Other than that, there isn't much that would be holding you back. I could get a constant 132 back when I had a core 2 duo @ 4GHz about a year ago.

#13 1080p 30fps vs 720p 60fps in TF2 General Discussion

Most people don't even use a high enough bitrate when they switch to 1080p to make it look as good as it did on 720. 60fps is better anyway.

#17 Introducing: The greatest custom scoreboard ever in Customization

The best thing would be to remove that white bar that highlights your name. Just makes it confusing quickly counting how many are dead.

#25 tf2 crashing computer in Q/A Help
shlanerDoes anyone know why my tf2 won't launch? It starts launching and then before it even gets to the loading screen hl2.exe stops working. This has only started happening recently and I haven't messed with configs or launch options lately.

This should probably in a new thread, but make sure you don't have any overlays attempting to run in TF2. Mumble and Fraps should work but others may cause crashes. Think of any new programs that may be running and conflicting with TF2, IE: new/different anti-virus, PC monitoring software, or even newly installed hardware.

some ram

tested it with memtest overnight, orthos overnight, and 3dmark06 with maxed settings

Well, for one use these drivers if you aren't already on them. http://www.nvidia.com/object/win7_winvista_32bit_197.45_whql.html

It's the last driver version designed for 200 series GPU's (which includes the GTS 250, which is the same as your card).

and follow this guide to install them.

I'll add more later.

EDIT: Memtest86 can only test ~3.5 GB of ram in windows. If you have more than you need to burn/create a bootable copy of memtest to run in DOS. The best method is to do so with each individual module/stick of ram installed by it's self to identify the offending module/modules.

I've looked up orthos, since I've never used it before, and it seems as though it only creates a processing thread that stresses 2 cores? If so, I'd highly recommend using Prime95 instead that creates a thread for each core no matter the number. Running that overnight for 8/9 hours is fine.

That's just the contrast ratio between the white's at the highest back light brightness and the blacks at the lowest back light brightness.

dashtmsdogg2mThere is an ongoing thread with these type of issues that I am involved in.

http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1774666&page=109

It may not be the problem you are experience as I have had crashes for well over a year followed by "Display driver has stopped and recovered" error.

I have this same damn problem. Apparently all Nvidia series 400 gfx cards are affected and I've been having the issue for nearly a year now.

I have figured out how to temporarily fix it though: when it starts to crash launch Task Manager and kill WerFault.exe. It sometimes recovers TF2 and sometimes it doesn't.

I have a gtx 465 and have no such problems.

@enigma how did you test your cpu, ram, and GPU and what are your PC specs.

There's no death/ skull + crossbones symbol for the spec scoreboard. Sometimes it'll say I have 125 HP even though I'm dead.
