Windows 7: Cannot play any game after upgrade

Cannot play any game after upgrade

Hello guys,

Sorry for my bad english,

I just installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bits, at home desktop, upgraded all my drivers (including bios, monitor drivers...)...

Then I bought, Dragon Age in Steam, and started playing, after 5 minutes the game became the most laggy thing in the world. Ok, I thought it was something with dragon age. Installed GTA IV, installed the patch, same thing, after about 5 -10 minutes the game starts to lag.

After searching a lot of foruns in the net, i realized that everybody seems to have problems with gaming in Windows 7, or the game crashes, or graphics problems.

I tried compatibility mode - same
Tried tweaking nvidia options - same
Tried tweaking games options - same
Installed more three games to test, all have the same problem.

My specs:

Core2Quad 9450
6mb Ram
GeForce GTX 250

Thank you all...

That would be your card. Avoid playing above 1440x900. Use driver sweeper if you update your drivers.
