I call upon the lag wizards

Question

Hello my darling cyber-pals,

I just saw daredevils pretty awesome "How to recognize your lag" post (thanks for that) and tried some of the tools. I've got some pretty annoying spikes all of a sudden, say for the past week or so. Never had any lag before really, and as far as I know I haven't changed anything. I get a constant ping around 50, which is nice, but I am freezing up entirely about every 1.5 seconds. Only freezing for a split second, of course, but this completely removes my ability to shoot people in the face, and that leads to a dramatic decrease in quality of life.

 

So here are some results. Like I said, I have a smooth 125 fps, but get complete freezes every 1.5 second or so, and this is very consistent and constant, never stops.

 

Speedtest.net results:

56ms ping

And I attached a screenshot, shows the spikes. The spikes on the lagometer dont look like much, but I hate them.

 

Hopefully someone has an idea, cause I'm dumb. Thanks my loves.

It's an old but beefy workstation. AMD Phenom 9750 quad core CPU. Nvidia 9500 gt video card and 8 gb of RAM.

 

So I figured my connection looked pretty solid, I was playing around changing commands as I played solo, via the /map command. Still got the freeziness.

 

Poked around my Nvidia Control Panel and found that my global settings had all been reverted to the defaults, and I can't change them. If I try to, say, turn off Vsync, I hit apply and it switches it back to On.

 

So I tried to reinstall my graphics drivers, they fail to install, tried a couple different methods, and they always fail.

 

Said **** it, I'm doing a reboot. Hopefully the hand mark on my forehead will fade in a few days/

Alright I think I got it, I couldnt disable thread optimization, my drivers were messed up and I couldn't change any of the settings. I just did a quick reinstall of windows, tried to play and still had the laggers, did the disable thread optimization and that took care of it. Thanks for the heads up.
