My Nvidia GTX 260 recently died, so I put my old Radeon 4850 in my PC instead (can't afford a new card) , which I haven't used since this PC ran windows
It all works fine with the latest driver except one small annoying issue.
When I load any 3D game, the frame rate is beyond slow..it's like 2 fps at best...however, if I do CTRL+ALT+F1 to go to a terminal, then do CTRL+ALT+F7 to go back to the X server, the FPS jumps up to what it should be, and remains that way until I quit the game. if I load another game I have to do the same again
Any ideas how to fix this?
