Mmm.. Odd problem with UOAM? Lag?

    So, as some people may remember, i made a topic about how i lag when i run uoam, while linked to a server. So.. I got more RAM. 1.gb more. Then uninstalled some stuff. Took out all unnecessary plugs in the surge protecter.

    Now, for the strange part.

    I can run UOAM, linked, While it is minimized, and not have it lag.

    But when i have it up, and i do the double click so it stays on my screen. And my screen will start kind of just waving as a i run, little wave lines. And it makes me slow and really hard to pvp with. Has anyone had this problem? Any Solutions?
    I also got a new video card and installed the latest driver. Im thinking its more of a problem with UOAM being on my screen, double clicked. Maybe its running too much of the graphics? Thanks in advance

    maybe be the uoam server you're connected to. And yes, it has always caused lag. It's why folks with bad machines never ran uoam.

    That has absolutely nothing to do with your problem. Although it's nice for the hydro bill ;)

    I think your problem is video. It kind of sounds like something is wrong with your refresh rate but without any additional info I can't really be sure.

    Please post system specs and dxdiag log if you can.

    Definitely sounds like video. How much RAM do you have and what kind of video card? How old is your machine? When is the last time you "cleaned" it out and I don't mean uninstalled stuff, I mean formatted it? Have you checked for crap running in the background? Do you have anti virus software running and/or adware remover software? Could be a number of things going on.
