Real time mouse/keyboard recording

by MarlboroMan2112 / December 11, 2012 5:24 PM PST

I have mouse recorder pro 2. For days its been running real time(If i record a script that is a minute long it plays back in a minute). I changed my PSU and now it doesnt playback in real time. It takes approximately 1 1/2 min to run a 1 min script.

I do not think it is my PSU upgrade that is causing this. I have swapped back to my old computer to test and same thing. I have also tried other macros/recorders and have the exact same issue. I have also tested this with my laptops and they both experience the same issue.

The very odd thing is I can get it to run "real time" if i run a norton scan in the background. As soon as the scan finishes it goes back to repeating the script slower.(And no i dont know how i figured this out Happy )

So my question is if anyone knows what could be causing this or any workarounds?
Thanks in advance.

Sounds like the CPU is clocking down.

One of the neat tricks of today's CPUs is to throttle back when needed. This is my guess. Too bad the make and model was omitted. But any i3, i5, i7 does this.

I have an i7-2600 in my desktop. I have done what i can to keep it from throttling back but i know not what else to do. I have tried raising the power that didn't prevent it. I have read their is a speed step for these chips but i have also read that disabling it keeps it clocked down.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
