However, there has been a recent rash of reports of gamers experiencing problems while playing the game in their PCs. The usual complaint is that the game will start to slow down after just 15 minutes of runtime. This highly irritating problem will be typically caused by either your PC's failure to properly read a system hardware or some issues with the settings of your computer. This tutorial will teach you how to permanently fix this problem.
The reasons as to why Call of Duty Black Ops slows down in your PC varies from case to case, examples of likely causes are slow Internet connection, hardware problems, graphical interface issues, and registry errors. To ensure that Call of Duty Black Ops runs at optimum speed in your PC, you need to know what system tools and settings to use and run.
What you will have to do first if you are having speed issues with Call of Duty Black Ops is to update Windows in your system. This does not necessarily mean that you will have to upgrade to the latest Windows version. You only need to install the latest updates, patches and hotfixes in your system. New versions of PC games such as Call of Duty Black Ops are configured to be compatible with the latest patches and updates. So to make sure that your PC will not be system wise lagging behind, you have to regularly download updates from the Internet. To do this you have to use Windows Update. When using Windows Update, you have to first click on Start in your Windows Bar. After this, select or choose All Programs. Finally, click on Windows Update to get the latest patches from the Internet. If this does not solve this particular issue, consider cleaning your registry.
The registry is one of the main causes of COD:Black Ops slow speed. It contains information that is necessary for the proper configuration and operation of several applications in your system. Unfortunately, most processing data that you will find in the registry are basically worthless. What's worse is that these build up over time the more you use your PC, especially if you are online most of the time. For example, cookies which are files that you can inadvertently download from web sites leave traces in the registry that are not self-cancelling. The problem is that this sector in your computer can only take so much and once it gets overloaded with information, can cause your PC to slow down. When this happens, applications will take a long time to load, eventually causing errors to surface. To remove redundant settings and files in your registry, you need to use a registry cleaner, which is a program that is specially designed for this purpose.
