Slow slot spins, yikes!! (Real play)

My last graphics card pulled a code 48 which means the hardware is fried, so I have just been using the built in graphics adapter the last 4-5 months.

Now my built in adapter started to play really slow on slots early last week, like first 10 min's were fine then all of a sudden I get jittery reels and the spins slow down to say anywhere between 10-25 seconds. This is real play as well as tourney play.

So I bought another Graphics card and after I installed it, I got a solid six hours of normal play then all of the sudden the lag came back.

I have tried uninstalling i,t and installing a second time including drivers, dumping space on my CP and the only other thing would be to reinstall vista but I can't find my disc.

Anyone know what's up? Take a stab in the dark, anything I could try!!

This problem is killing my favourite Hobby.

Help Greatly appreciated.

Or maybe he has just upgraded the old microgaming software without being aware of it :D:lolup:

not sure if this is related, but when MG came out with that upgrade to the tabular format, you know with that bigger screen and crappy res? While I noticed (while connected to the casino) if I launched IE or clicked a link that happened to launch it the games would run (spin) quite sluggishly. I'd have to exit the casino and relaunch it and all was fine again.

maybe you have a heat problem, does your processor fan spin or is there a big ole heat sink on it?

The new MG casinos were jittery for quite a while until I cleared my cache and deleted all other offline files. Defragged and scandisked my computer.

Under webpage tools/options/delete all

Everything is running fine now. No jitteriness (if that is a word ;)).

It can't be my new graphics card because I had the same problem with the built in graphics player.

I'm going to try installing directx again, maybe when I uninstalled my old Nvidia player this was uninstalled also.

Microgaming plays the worst, but this problem is with every gaming platform.

I found that Microsoft has a few programs that are free (as long as you have a genuine copy of Windows (vista, xp etc.). The one I use when mine starts acting sluggish, and/or slots are spinning painfully slow is Windows Live One Care, it cleans up, & tunes up, and scans your computer for spyware, viruses, trojans, etc. I usually use the "Full Service Scan" (it can take awhile to do a "complete" (as opposed to "quick" scan), but is well worth the wait. The program optimizes your P.C.'s performance so well that I swear by it. You can also download "Microsoft Security Essentials, a FREE consumer anti-malware solution for Genuine Windows based PCs". You can find both programs at

Thanks for the tip, can't get it to work will try again later.

"We're sorry. This version of the Windows Live OneCare safety scanner doesn't work with your Web browser or operating system."

That's the error I get, I'm using Internet explorer and windows Vista. I did try the vista download to.

I found this device that gave me a few free shots, is this worth renting.

Or can the onecare take care of most of what windowsclear can do?

CCleaner from Piriform does much the same, temp file cleaning, registry cleaning etc and it's free or you could try a trial of TuneUp Utilites.
Defraggler is a better defrag program to try too, you can choose to defrag only the files that are defragmented instead of doing the whole hard drive, free too and a defrag on mine only takes a minute or two max.

It might be worth doing a scan using a different anti-virus program to rule out an undetected virus, prevx would be best IMO (won't conflict), it's buy only but it scans the whole computer in a few mins and although it won't remove any viruses found til you pay up, it will at least show if you have a problem.

Just a few ideas, hope you get it sorted anyway :)

I have rec'd the same error message you got, even though I had used Onecare quite a few times prior to receiving the error. I will usually delete my browsing history, temp files, cookies etc., then I run the Microsoft Security Essentials (heres the link to download)

Then run a full system scan. After the scans complete, I reboot my pc & then try Windows Live Onecare again,(heres the link to the Vista version that I use)

This time it should work. Sounds like your registry is corrupt and if thats the case then the above steps should be able to fix it. :thumbsup:

I've never used this program before, so I couldnt tell you if they are similar in anyway. When you use the trial version, does it scan & repair your system? Or just scan and then show you all the errors that need fixing, and then say you need to pay before it will repair anything? Just wondering cause the latter has happened to me plenty of times using trialware. :cool:
