Modern Warfare 3 menu lag
Hello, long time reader and first time poster. After scouring the internets I've found no answers and was wondering if anyone had any possible ideas for a solution.
For the first several months of owning Modern Warfare 3 it played absolutely fine, great fps and zero lag, until one day I booted it up, and the game took about 5 times longer to load(it's the steam version by the way). The smoke in the background of the menu seems to be stressing my system out more than it should, and if I scroll my cursor over any buttons(notably the create-a-class menu) there's a .5 second delay between switching/loading weapon icons.
I've reinstalled not only the game countless times, but also the operating system. The fact that it was working perfectly, and now it eats CPU and GPU like crazy just doesn't make any sense to me, I appreciate the help!
My system specs:
Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1
AMD FX-6100 20 °C(6-core)
Zambezi 32nm Technology
32.0 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 671MHz (9-9-9-24)
Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. GA-990XA-UD3 (Socket M2) 36 °C
ATI Radeon HD 5700 Series (XFX Pine Group) 36 °C(XFX HD5750)
932GB Seagate ST31000524AS ATA Device (SATA) 34 °C(Computer installed on terrabyte, SSD used for storage)
56GB OCZ VERTEX PLUS ATA Device (SSD)
HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH40N ATA Device
AMD High Definition Audio Device
