Dmc 4 moive & gameplay lag

I was able to play DMC4 on my pc without any issues, but after I had to reformat and reinstall windows xp (long story), the game is not even playable. After I reinstalled the game, I noticed that the sfx in the main menu would lag (ex. female voice trying to say the name of the game, but said "devil devil devil may cry", and hearing multiple clicks from moving my cursor to select an option when I only moved it once). I overlooked the issue and started a new game, only to find that the same problems were happening in the introduction cinemetc, such as the soundtrack stuttering while the video was still in motion, or vice versa. Then I started playing the first level, but both the video and sfx were lagging during gameplay, making it unplayable. Any ideas as to what is going on?

System Specs:
AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+ 2.70 GHz
4 GB of RAM
Nvidia 9600 GT 512MB PCI-E video card
Windows XP Pro

Have you tried reinstalling the drivers for your video and audio hardware? If you reformatted your hard drive, all of that would have been deleted. Try going to the manufacturers website for each component and getting the newest drivers. Hope this helps.

Help Me remove lag please

Maybe you need to switch to another video recording software instead. Smartpixel might be a good choice for you, it is compatible with all the PC games, and it has a PIC in PIC mode which allows you comment on the webcam while game capturing, it is simple and easy.

Sounds on my PC are Choppy/Laggy

there is another FREE program you can try.. try an internet search for AD-AWARE It finds those pesky little memory thieves and oftentimes can eliminate them. I am unfamiliar with your antivirus program.. I would use McAfee or Norton. As for the lagging it sounds like a buffering problem. there is a program I use called System Mechanic that does a pretty decent job of fixing internet and even registry problems. The System mechanic by IOLO ( i think) is a little spendy unless you get in on an offering I got 1 yr service for only 20.00 (vs 40-80 to buy the prog from the store) The musid that is choppy is it while online with a program such as mIRC? if so try #mirc_rainbow maybe the OPS there can help you, just be polite to them and thank them and you will be a welcome visitor anytime you drop by.. Another nice IRC site is #popinn or even #mirc_help (yes the # is neccesary)
Good Luck

Reformating a hardrive/re-activating windows XP

You can activate it again I believe. I think you can completely reformat your drive up to four times per year and reactivate without telephoning microsoft.
