This happens if you do not have a computer powerful enough especially when playing online games. What are your computer specifications?

Doc is right!

Also for online gaming your bandwidth connection speed is important.

Doc means specs like, processor/RAM/Motherboard etc!

Download this freeware app to give you the information if you are unsure:

Also, tell us your connection speed with your ISP and what game you are experiencing the lag with......could be server related also!

(1) Download the program from the link provided, install and run it!

(2) This will give you a log containing all your system specs......post those details here.

(3) Call up your Internet Service Provider (or check your account details online at their website) and request details of your internet connection account relating to connection speed. (ie 256kb/s - 512kb/s - 1.5mb/s - 3mb/s or more). Tell us what this is.

(4) Im sure you remember which game you were playing when you suffered the lag. Tell us what it is.


Remember that gaming requires large reserves of computer and bandwidth resources, so in short, your probably trying to do to much with too little!

Yeah, it's your computer, your CPU looks old, the graphic card has only 32Mb of memory and you have only 318Mb of RAM.

This wont help im afraid.......In order for you to participate in the latest online gaming arena's you would need to update your whole system.

Your system specs (early 90's) are way behind by today's standards and there is no other alternative other than to purchase a new computer.

Sorry, but its the only way!
