Hello everyone,

i've seen a demonstration about XNA on Microsoft BigDays 2007 in Austria and now i've wantet do try this out.
I've coded the Going Beyond Demo and looked the learning videos. Everything looks good, except of one: the game runs VERY VERY VERY slow!

and i don't know why, because my computer is not sooo bad:
Core 2 Duo 2,4ghz
2gb corsair ram
sapphire radeon x1950 pro
asus p5b e-plus

so my hardware shouldn't be the problem. but everytime a runs this demo, my cpu usage is 100% and it looks like, that only the cpu is used and my graphiccard does absolutly nothing with this.

i've installed latest drivers of my graphiccard, latest directx and i didn't find the problem why this runs soooo slow.

does anyone of you know what the problem could be

thanks for help!

Do you have the DirectX SDK installed It may be that you're using the reference rasterizer.... do other games work correctly

no, only the DirectX End-User Runtime. I thought only this is requiered. I'm just downloading the SDK an tell you if it works correctly.
and yes, every game runs very slow

thanks for help!

Just a thought since all games run slow. Is it possible that DirectX acceleration is disabled Using dxdiag (from Start>Run) should show you if DirectDraw, Direct3D and AGP Texture Acceleration is enabled.

Hope you get it working!
