Hi bakes1,

What games are you noticing this problem with? Are there any games that don't have this problem?

Cheers,

Well... In my experience with some stuff, like emulators or some games, there is needed to update your Direct X 9 Headers to their latest release... yes, you may say: "Why so?, I got Direct X 11 in Windows 7, that is unusefull!!!!!" But the problem is that, some games and emulators still need some or full set of DX9 headers to work correctly, or to enable some plugins that make things go faster...

Try updating your DX9... Download details: DirectX End-User Runtime
and try again... I hope this works for you.

See ya!!

Is TurboCache enabled? I've heard that this feature may slowdown some games and apliccations, since it uses part of your system memory to increase the "video frame buffer"... but this memory is somewhat slower than video card (I guess) and even worse, you loose vital space in RAM to get your games running smooth... maybe you may try disabling that (You can revert to normal if fails) using RivaTurner...

Is the last thing I can think for, maybe others more experienced can give you a better solution if this fails.

See ya!!
