The games I run on my computer run really really fast. Like press the forward key and you run half way across the map fast.
This mostly happens to the FPS's that I run, and I have absolutely no idea how to fix this.

Please Help! If it helps, I know that I have a Radeon 9800 pro video card.

Well, what games are they. If they are online, check if the server has speed script mods and other factors with online games. The 9800 is not a new card, so whatever games you run are fairly old and most likely don't have a developer console to modify the scrips and user speed.

This is just playing single player. No online going on here.
This happens only FPS's, I can still play RTS's.

Edit: Whoops forgot the games. This happens on Battlefield 2, Couter Strike: Condition Zero, Serious Sam: Second Encounter.

I've had this problem in the past with Unreal, and it had to do with running on a dual-core chip. After I set the properties to only use one core, the problem went away.

I just called my brother who owns the computer, and he said it doesn't have a dual core processor. What Now?

Try turning vsync on by default through the driver control panel.
Is it happening to games run in OpenGL or DirectX?

The little critters of nature, they don't know that they're ugly. That's very funny, a fly marrying a bumble bee. I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me. Why didn't you believe me?

Either that or limit the frame rate, OpenGL is fairly old compared to DirectX so there might be a problem with the rendering speed. Renegade, do you run on DirectX 8 or 9? I know for a fact that the ATI 9800 does not support DirectX 10

DirectX

Edit: I'm really sorry for being stupid here, but I have no idea where the driver control panel is. Is that the same as the windows control panel?

I know that its either Direct x 9-8. I'm not playing top of the line games here exactly.

Meh. those games could not need for that hardware to slow down for it to keep up. single core, hell you're system is probably barely able to run BF2. The other two older games should rin fine. I'd say update your driver for the video card. Have these games run no problem in the past on your system?

You might also check your ping to the places that you are trying to connect to. really high ping on a FSP game will sometimes make it look as though you're hopping around from place to place.

Forgive my spelling and grammar. I post from my cell phone a lot. Sometimes when I'm on the can at work.

Since last week, these games have been running perfectly. And this happens when I'm playing single player mode. No multiplayer.
