To disable power saving on Nvidia cards go to Nvidia Control Panel > 3d Settings > manage 3d settings > Global Settings tab > Power Management Mode (change this to 'prefer maximum performance). Hit apply and restart.

When I make what you say. When I read a video I am in FULL 3D (900 MHz, 1800 MHz, 2100 MHz) Usually I am in low-power 3D (405 MHz, 810 MHz, 324 MHz)

Sorry for my english wink.gif

If billbartuska's suggestion didn't work, I have one other idea. Unfortunately it involves installing another program, but I can almost guarantee it will work.

Use that program, and have your card enter P0 state with like 25% GPU usage. smile.gif

Honestly though, I'd probably just update your drivers (and maybe do clean install) and see if that fixes things for you.
