  1. Geforce 7800GS low performance on Win98 se

    Yes, I'm pretty confident with that one. Even managed to install win xp and the latest forceware drivers, but I still got the same score. Thanks for your help.
  2. Geforce 7800GS low performance on Win98 se

    Yes. That was the thing i found, Idle the clocks were 275 for core and 500 for memory, but they quickly went to 375 for core and 600 for memory when I started the benchmark. So at least GPU is running at full speed.
  3. Geforce 7800GS low performance on Win98 se

    I wasn't able to find where I could monitor the GPU usage. There wasn't such thing.
  4. Geforce 7800GS low performance on Win98 se

    Alright we might get close now... I ran 3DMark 2001 (again), this time I had Wintop on the other screen, and it showed that the CPU usage was 100% the whole benchmark, so it sure can bottleneck. I need to find some program to show the GPU usage.
  5. Geforce 7800GS low performance on Win98 se

    Alright somehow the newest CPU-Z (1.78) reports my clock speed as -1.00 MHz, but multiplier is right 14.00 EDIT: Tried the version you suggested. It works just fine reporting my clock speed as 2800 MHz. EDIT2: Alright. It is not throttling. Ran 3DMark 2001 whilst CPU-Z was on my other screen, and the clock just stayed there, no dips whatsoever. So I guess we can rule that out. I wonder what could it be then...
  6. Geforce 7800GS low performance on Win98 se

    I have tried them. Installing them and after that rebooting gives me black screen with a blinking dash in the top left corner. I did leave it there for a good 15 minutes. And for the CPU, I cannot overclock it since one of the corners in the fastening mechanism broke and i have to use cable tie to fix it. It works, but the temps are near overheating when the CPU is stressed. Thanks though.
  7. Hi all! I recently made a switch from Ti4600-8X to old 7800GS of mine after i saw that the shutdown bug was fixed. So I went and installed the unofficial 82.69 driver. Everything worked out well. After the first boot I had to run 3DMark 2001se for comparison. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the result. Only 16191 points. Keep in mind my old 4600 got 13113. How could there be so little difference? "Well that must be some sort of a bug", I thought myself. Then I proceeded to run Quake 1. In start menu the background ran flawlessly. I decided to crank up the resolution from 320 x 240 to 640 x 480. The difference in framerate was astonishing. Every resolution after the initial 320 x 200 turned Quake into slideshow. "Well Quake is an old game, that's the reason.", I thought. For the grand finale I fired up Morrowind. It was horrible. I only got 30 fps outside no matter what resolution I was using. I have tried switching to agp 4x but it made no difference whatsoever. Any help is appreciated. Specs: Pentium 4 2,8 Ghz (Hyperthreading off) Asus P4S800(SIS 648FX, Doesn't support AGP Fast Write O.o) 256MB PC3200 DDR SDRAM NVIDIA Geforce 7800 GS 256MB Windows 98 SE Integrated Sound card 3Com 3C905B-TX Fast Etherlink XL 10/100 PCI EDIT:Tried changing AGP Aperture Size to any other than the default 64 MB. 3DMark wouldn't run with lower than 32 MB. With 32 MB I got 16171 points. So no difference. EDIT2: Disabled Shutdown Patcher but it made no difference.
  8. Compaq LTE 5100

    I think it could be the connector in lappy, but how I'm gonna check it out. Its not battery cause I have tried with and without battery. Charger gives me 18V, hope that's OK... Thanks for answering. -Retroer
  9. Compaq LTE 5100

    Now when I have gotten it, it seems that it is LTE 5000 which means that it has only pentium 75mHz And when I turned it off it didn't start anymore. No lights were flashing, no sound and nothing on the screen. I checked charger and it worked. So does that mean, that powerboard is damaged? I have nothing else what I could try so any info is appreciated. PS. If I have to buy new powerboard links is great.... Best regards Retroer
