guys m gaming on 6200le 256mb gfx card. i knw card is crappy but it runs mw n other games fine. now the problem is if i press accl. d car goes on its own for 2-3 sec, even pressing d hand break is if no use. If i press right turn for 1-2 sec, d car takes 360 turn. It looks like d car is gliding. And it happens in every other game whether CS:CZ, Mafia,GRAW, etc. HELP ME:confused:

hey make sure ur bluetooth is not ON... coz someone may be playing pranks thru handling ur keybord functionality with mobile key pad... WE always used to do this with one of our friend in this VERY game (most wanted) in the hostel.... HAD LOTSA FUN SEEING HIM GETTING BUSTED EVERYTIME AND GETTING SLAPPED BY THOSE COPS and his face so confused and angry.. :D :D :D

I'm sure it wont be any bluetooth problem. Try to set the graphics setting to default. It may even need a re install if problem not solved. And do mention full pc config.

check the level of defragmentation.
start->run->dfrg.msc

increase the virtual memory to 1GB (min. & max. value should be same, i.e 1024MB)

turn off any AntiVirus / AntiSpyware progs. when gaming.

guys there is no problem with the keyboard, tested on my frnd kb problem still persists.
as i already said reinstalling solves the problem but only for sometime i.e after fresh installation everything works fine but only for 4-5 runs( 1 run= 30 min of playing) after that again the same problem?? and it happens only in "games"
P.S i m still using xp sp2 and not sp3

it happens when u play for more than 3~4 races in one stretch. ie the menus gets sluggish and the keyboard buttons too gets sluggish, and acts weired. It happened with my older system.
quit the game and restart the game after evenry 2~3 races, and everythin ll be fine.
also, free as much ram u can before entering the game, by ending unwanted apps from taskmanager.

see if OS drive (win XP) & the game drives (where u installed games) require/not defragmentation.

keep the Virtual mem. to 1024 MB. its enuf, as you have 1.5 GB of RAM.

I once had same problem with nfs underground2. The car would drive on its own. After all the troubleshooting, finally i decided to unplug the cheap gamepad, and the game would work fine. But still, i didn't play the game coz of low framerate on my outdated p3 machine.

I too have the same problem with the NFS: Pro street.

The basic problem is the graphic power the game needs. You need a good mid range graphic card to run this game properly. Just upgrade ur graphic card and the problem will be solved.

Car races needs high speed of data transfer.
