You should try the Beta drivers from the Nvidia website. You don't need to use Sager's drivers, and Beta drivers = more stability and less problems. Nvidia chooses to not have every driver be WHQL because that slows down the time that they can release drivers. Beta drivers are rarely unstable, they are just drivers that have had small fixes added on, and then released right away instead of waiting for Microsoft to give the WHQL certification for each and every driver release. And even if the latest Beta driver doesn't fix your stutter, you'll definitely get an increase in gaming performance smile.gif There have been a number of performance optimizations that you're missing out on for gaming!

Yes you're right, it doesn't support Optimus, bummer frown.gif

Alright then. I never used Sager's GPU drivers since I'm a type of person that has all drivers updated. I'm using 296.10 simply because of stability (no BSODs) as I've said earlier. I might try the beta drivers though. So beta drivers VERSION for laptop NVIDIA GPU = beta driver VERSION for desktop NVIDIA GPU?

I was just wondering if this patch has been added or will be added to one of the next releases.
If not, how can I make\get .EXE file out of it and apply on my waterfox to check if it works?
Thanks in advance...

Although a patch has been released for this bug, it has not been verified by the QA team. To test to see if it works, either a very involved patch has to be written that replaces the old code, or the source code needs to be recompiled with that new code...which is what is done by the QA team. It is not as simple as turning the new code into an .exe file. This issue is slated for firefox15 which Mr Alex will recompile into waterfox15. Until then i recommend you holding your monitor in front of a mirror...lol tongue.gif

Thanks for the tip... waiting for WF15 then...

Yep, the drivers are mostly GPU core tweaks, and so since desktops and laptops use the same GPU cores then Nvidia almost always releases the same driver version for both at the same time.

Ok. So what if updating my GPU drivers didn't solve the problem, any other suggestions?

Try putting a second install of Windows on your computer and seeing if you still have the problem?

Another thing I would try to do is completely uninstall Flash, Waterfox, and Firefox and then use something like RevoUninstaller's tracking feature to record the installation of all 3 of those. So you'd uninstall everything the best you can, then individually install each one, one by one, tracking each one separately with RevoUninstaller. Once you have them all tracked, I would then used the saved logs with RevoUninstaller to Uninstall all 3 once more. This way, you make sure to reverse EVERY change that they make to your system (usually a program's uninstaller leaves some things screwed up). I do this when I am really having problems with a program that just wont work no matter how many times I reinstall and it fixes the problem about half the time.

Both of those two suggestions are time intensive, unfortunately :/ The first one would let you know if it's something with your system, second will skip that and just try to brute-force fix things. I'd also make sure your chipset drivers are up-to-date from Intel as well.

Thanks for the 1st suggestion although I don't think that will solve the problem since this is a fairly new Win7 install.

I already did your 2nd suggestion before even asking in this thread. I'm an OC type of person and do these things very neatly which is why I don't think it will also help?

And my drivers are ALL updated. Even all the firmwares/BIOS down from the USB3 ports up to the main BIOS of my laptop, so yeah.

Sorry for the double post.

Now this is weird. I've tried it again using IE 32-bit and IE 64-bit and have definitely no stuttering with it. However, I tried using FF14 and WF13 and both produces the stuttering problem. This is playing the same video. Now what could be the problem? We can now isolate that it isn't between Flash 32-bit and Flash 64-bit.

Flash for Internet Explorer uses ActiveX components. Have you tried 64-Bit Opera?

Probably a bug in the FF code then. Try Mr. Alex's suggestion to use Opera 64-bit.
