Well we kind of have to know your computer's specs. I mean if you're trying to capture videos on a old, crappy single core system, you're SoL.

So, what are your specs?

And you only have a 4GB harddrive? You sure? Or did you mean 40GB?

Hahaha, ok well first go to http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html and download that. There you can tell us ALL about your computer.

2nd, don't ever go to those website tune up sites or PC repair sites. They're junk!
What your going to want to do is download Avast! Antivirus (Do the FREE download!). Run Avast! and do a full system scan. Don't worry about the 30 day trial, because you can register (quick and easy) and get a whole year for free.

Now, I am not sure what operating system you have (I'm assuming Windows), go to Start>>All Programs>>Accessories>>System Tools>>Right click on the Command Prompt and click Run as Administrator.

Once the black command prompt box opens up type:
For Windows XP AND Windows Vista: "defrag c: -f" without the quotation marks. (Can someone confirm on the Vista defrag utility, I'm not sure on what extra options they give)
For Windows 7: "defrag c: /H /X" again without the quotation marks.

If you have trouble on the defrag utility, type "defrag -?" without the quotations and it will show what parameters you can specify. I love to use the command prompt defragging tool because it takes very little resources. And I am just guessing that your harddrive might be too full and don't meet the 15% free space so I added the -f to force defrag.

Also run a disc clean up (Start>>Programs>>Accessories>>System Tools>>Disc Cleanup. Select your C: drive (Default for Windows Operating systems) and delete whats already checked for you.



Ooops, I kinda forgot to help address your problem. Even on a suped up computer, it won't show the exact frame rate you might get. It's been quite some time since I used Fraps, but you can adjust how the video is captured in the Video capture options, correct?

The processor, mainly.

Get these programs:
CCleaner.
Avast!.
Spybot Search and Destroy.
Malwarebytes.

Install all of them,
Run CCleaner first, do everything, the Clean-up and the Registry fixes.
Then run Avast! and Spybot S&D, but not at the same time, as that will cause thrashing on the HDD (which is not good). Once those are done,
Reboot into Safe Mode (hit F8 at start up, then select Safe Mode, no networking), then run Malwarebytes full scan.

That should have your computer back to kick-ass performance. Sure, it'll take a while, but it is well worth it.

After you do what was previously mentioned, you first would need a paid version of Fraps, though I'm sure you've done that. Now, if you have a small HDD (Less than say 100gb) Fraps will take up a lot of your HDD space. I recommend you run fraps at 30fps because the higher the set FPS the harder it would be to run. There is not very many settings for fraps so if there is still problems you may have a PC that is not good enough to run fraps.

Try running it in half of the full resolution at 30fps. That's what movies/tv is at. Well, film is at 24fps, and tv is at 30fps.
