    Bluestacks on virtual pc lagging so much it's unusable

    Main PC:

    Win7 x64
    8 GB RAM
    GTX 970
    i7 4770K 4.2 GHz

    Installed a fresh version of Win 7 x32 in a Virtualbox, installed the guest addon and the Direct 3D thing. Installed Bluestacks with no issues. I can use the virutalbox just fine but when I start Bluestacks it does start but then it keeps loading forever and the virtual PC starts lagging as **** and the CPU usage goes up to 100% and stays there. The CPU usage on the main PC is just sitting stable at around 20%. I can't add more cores to the virtual machine...

    Did you enable virtualization in your bios? (If it's just lag try this: droid4x simulator-best mobile experience on desktop )

    Ah, this fixed it. Thanks!

    EDIT: Actually the games I play in Bluestacks are lagging very much, feels like they're running at 10 FPS and the CPU usage is at 100%. How do I give more performance to the virtual box? The CPU on my main PC is still stable at 20%.

    Now it works to add more cores to the virtualbox, I added 2 more cores and I still can't play any games on Bluestacks...

    AMIDuOS gives better performance IMO. Run Android on Windows - Fastest Android Emulator
