Windows 7 Laggy Animations

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So, I had to downgrade to Windows 7. Why? Well...Minecraft constantly crashed on 8. On 7, it's dandy.

Now that we have that out of the way. Check out my specs below. There are great. Zero reason for lag in aero.

If I'm doing something like watching a youtube video (not even HD, it does it regardless), I notice "FPS lag" in Windows aero. If I switch tabs in my browser or even just pause the video, it's fine and back to normal. Likewise, if I watch a youtube video and then start moving a window around or maximus/minimize a window, there's FPS lag on the video itself as well.

I have a GREAT PC...and I don't want to get rid of animations. Any ideas?

Oh, and spare the obvious:P My drivers are all up to date, I have all updates, I have TONS of RAM available etc.

Does it with or without it enabled. It's not flash that's bothering me. It's the laggy animations in Windows.

I mentioned it because the problems seem to be deriving from the youtube videos. Has it occured at any other point outside of watching youtube videos?

Hmmm. It's not just on youtube videos, but here's something interesting...

If I watch youtube, or even just a video file on one of my monitors (I have 2), it lags the animations on the OTHER monitor. If I take the laggy window and move it over to the monitor where the video is playing, it's silky smooth.

I am confuse.

I turn off the animations, it works better, uses less memory, and the UI responds faster thumb.gif

Thats beside the point, man. I shouldn't need to do this...

I swear to god. Only reason I went back to 7 were nvidias 8 drivers...if this is another nvidia quirk with dual monitors, I'm done with the stupid green team.

try memtest and see if your ram is unstable. could also be a driver issue which is more likely
