GeForce 8400 gs instability watching movies - Page 2

post #11 of 28
Yes zip-ties will work indeed. Have you tried gpu-z to see what the temps are on the card. I can't remember 100% but i am thinking that card has the temp sensors. Just refreshed and i seen he did that. Remember i am getting old and gray headed....

Try running memtest86+ then to check out your ram then?

I like the usb one as mine i just hit f8 and choose the usb as my first boot device. But if you have a blank cd-rw as that way you won't waste a full cd for that small iso. Then you can erase and update it when the drop a new one out.

I don't know what to say unless you are trying to download HIGH DEF movies? What about the filesize of some of these movies?

What mode is your hard drive, etc running in? You can check the modes in device manager and let us know. Thanks

I never try to do the hi-def movies... most of the files are around 700-800 MB.

KILLER_K, what exactly am I looking for in Device Manager? Where do I find where it tells me the mode?

Probably because of a slow hdd so your cpu will have to wait for the data to be transfered from the hdd and processed by the gpu, thus resulting in the sudden stutters.

Just a wild guess lol.

So this issue is still not resolved. I have updated all drivers, checked for memory errors, even found an issue with my paging file size and fixed that, but still having lots of issues. I can run games with no problems for hours at a time, even using multiple tabbed browsers while running the game, but as soon as I try to watch a movie and open a browser window at the same time I get instability and the only way to fix it is to restart the computer. Even the NVidia Control Panel with preview is effected with what looks like snow on the little logo that spins and nothing I do short of a full restart fixes it. I have spoken with PNY, the maker of the video card, I have spoken with NVidia, and both can not give me an explanation as to what is going on or how to stop it from happening other than buying a new video card... this card is only 8 months old... ***???

Based off that, the issue is with your graphics card. The 8400GS is an absolute joke of a GPU. Your old GeForce 4 is honestly just as fast. But considering its ONLY doing it when you have multiple 2D things going on the screen, or maybe a 2D / 3D....that tells me its a GPU problem.
