Static sounds and FPS drops?

posted by sfs99 on - last edited - Viewed by 1.4K users
Hey, i was wondering if anyonelse was experiencing this problem, i'm on my FIFTH playthrough of The Walking Dead and never had this problem; sometimes when people in the game talk, it gets very staticy and i can'r understand what they are saying, and while this is happening, my FPS drops drastically. I don't know why this is happening, sometimes it is fine, and then it just starts to get really bad. (I know it is not my headphones because i tried it out of my computer speakers too, and it is just as bad, I also noted this a bit while i was playing Minecraft, please any reasons why this is happening would be awesome!)

Thanks!

  • Try lowering the graphical settings and closing all other programs on your computer if you haven't already. That's all I can really suggest

    not ttg/twd fault, if it's on another game,

    perhaps you should also try watch a movie/dvd or listen to music to see what else it happens on.

    could be your sound hardware in the computer faulty..
    thanks, i figured it was my computer :( ever since we installed our printer it has been acting up, it would randmly freeze up and stop wprking and we would have to turn it off. It is just going to be really hard to enjoy this game and ep 3 if this keeps on happening :/ I also listened to music on my computer and watched many vids, the sound and FPS looked sounded and looked perfectly fine. I guess this is a good and bad thing because now i know it isn't a fault with my computer's sound, but i don't know what is the problem :( And i definately know it is my computer because it freezes up and stops working at points when I am playing The Walking Dead and Minecraft.

    In that case, turn off the printer and see if it still acts up. If it does, then uninstall any software and/or drivers that came with the printer, unplug or turn off the printer, then see if it acts up.

    If the computer is still freezing up after that, you may want to run some diagnostics to check your computer hardware (such as memtest).

    I have the graphics setting and resolution default to the way it came, and the default to my computer, and all i have open is Skype, but I'm not using this, could this realloy affect it? I always have had Skype open whenever im playing The Walking Dead before, and the sound and FPS and graphics were absolutely fine. Thanks for the suggestion though! :)

    Ok thank you! :) I will try this.
  • also check the taskbar and look at the process menu to see whats running on the cpu could be your cpu is being maxed out..

    also have you defragged your hard drive ?

    start/windows logo / bottom left of screen, control panel, system maintenance, admin tools / defrag hard drive

    basically it will move files around to free up space and remove gaps by grouping them together, depending on your spec and how much fragmentation has occured may take a few mins or a while.
