1 fps help!
does anyone have any suggestions: quake live was running fine with my 9800 GT and Windows 7, but my cooling fan for my video card went and I had to take it out. So I started using onboard video and when I tried to load quake live I was getting one frame per second and it was unplayable and I did not change any settings. So I figured it was because the onboard video couldn't handle the game. But then I got a 8800 GT and put it in my computer and I tried loading quake live and again I get one frame per second. I have no idea why it will not run correctly. Any help would be appreciated.
It's your display drivers.
1 fps means it cannot see your graphics card, try reinstalling your drivers or updating them.
first thing i tried no luck =[
Check the value of r_gl_renderer
If it does not say 8800 gt or w/e it proves that QL is not using it.
Can you run other games on the card? What if you disable the onboard graphics or w/e?
What is the onboard chipset? Even below-par chipsets still can give u better than 1 fps. This immediately says to me config errors, you didn't try troubleshooting any graphics/ACPI/fan settings in the bios did u?
Very possible your old card that died, fried something that didn't smell bad enough to alert you.
When it does 1 fps it really means it's running off "GDI Generic", not integrated graphics OR discrete graphics.

Exactly what QL needs to see your graphics card is not clear to me, but having someone reinstall their graphics drivers usually does the trick.
i been buiding pcs for 15 years so i do know something, its neither a drivers issue nor the cards not being able to handle the game, its totally got to be something with quake live and the browser itself but there is no tech support lol guessing if you pay for premium there is
It's a common problem that is normally solved in the way I specified.

Back up configs, and make sure there is no qzconfig.cfg repconfig.cfg autoexec.cfg in home/baseq3.
Then go to game settings -> reset defaults.
Can you run other games off the card? Nothing weird in device manager? Integrated graphics disabled/bypassed?
thanks for trying to help lorfa ill try that
lorfa thanks reset to defaults and everything is fine
