GPU clocks not correct -

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I have a 550ti, using the latest drivers and latest version of Windows 10. For some reason my video card will default to 405 or 50.6 mhz instead of 900 or the overclocked 970. I usually have it at stock until I play a game, this happens without it reaching the thermal threshold. Not sure if its a driver issue, video card issue, Windows issue, etc. Thanks for the help, I'm sure one of you know what to do. biggrin.gif

Well to clarify, what program are you using when you see these frame drops? Do you notice a sudden drop in FPS? Have you tried an older driver?

No sudden frame drops.
Start computer
Open GPUZ
I watch the clock speeds go from 900 > 405 and sometimes even drop even lower to 50.
Only way to fix is restart, start game right away. and even then the clock will still drop before I have the chance to start a game.

Trying to change the clocks in afterburner doesn't work, the clocks don't boost back up when playing a game.

No game is playable at 50mhz on a 550 ti lol. I had a older batch of drivers and it happened still. Just not as much.



Can someone tell me how to properly remove old drivers? Maybe its some sort of conflict going on with previous drivers.

Ok, so it's more than it just displaying slower clocks, the frame rates are unplayable (which obviously 50mhz would be) on games you've ran fine before?

Use DDU and then follow up with CCleaner Registry cleaner. Restart. Run CCleaner again to ensure there are not left overs. Install new drivers, restart.

I rarely, rarely, rarely need to go that route but it will wipe anything related out.

I uninstalled through device manager, I disabled the iGPU this time. Restarted, then ran CCleaner. Everything seems fine now but now I'm using really outdated drivers...Which means no recent optimization. Kinda sucks but I have a 550ti so not much I can do about it for now.
GTX1060/RX480 upgrade soon. Thanks! I'll post back in a day or so to confirm it's fixed.

New drivers on an old card = PROBLEMS.
