How come Dota 2 starts off at 120fps but then goes down to around 6fsp?

by on February 21, 2013

Q: Hello,
I’m hoping some help with my computer issue. I’m running with Intel i5 2500K 3.3Ghz, 8 GG, an galaxy geforce GFX 650ti gpu. However, when i started running my dota 2 my fps was like 120 and then it went down slowly till 6fps reach . I don’t know what was wrong. And also when i start installed my Video driver, there was a black screen with white courser. when i uninstall the video driver with Safe mode, my opc runs normally or other way starts with safe mode and then open msconfig- boot tag- “Tick” Basevideo then it runs normally. Black screen happened everytime when i installed my video driver. However, I was lucky and there is no black screen at the seventh times when i reinstall video driver. But when i play dota 2, fps still went down. Sorry for my bad english because i’m international student.

    First, make sure you’re running the latest video card driver from

    If you’re still having trouble after that, I strongly suggest you check out the DOTA forums to see if anyone else is hitting the same issue. It might be a bug in the game.
