Windows 7: Intermitent, Graphic card is slowing down

Hello James

Not yet. I was quite busy lattely, so I did not had chance to go deeper.

It could be a driver problem or a memory allocation failure. When it occured, I unplug the dvi LCD cable from the PC. All windows are then replaced over the others 3 open monitors. I then reinstall the cable and replace the windows to their appropriate screen and the problem is resolve for few hours.

I had to do this operation 3 time today

Hope to get some free time over the weekend to resolve that

It might be due to overheating..Following are the reasons for overheating, just take care of these things::

1. Stop Overclocking your CPU
2. Make sure your Heat Sink is placed properly above the processor
3. Clean the Processor fan, Heat Sink and other peripherals
4. Use High Speed fans
5. Use CPU Heat Sink Paste in the processor
6. Make sure your dint restrict the speed of CPU fan.
7. Use Additional Cooling Units

Hello alishathomaz. Thanks for your input

-System not overclocked, nor the GPU
- Heat sink verify and OK
- Paste was put on CPU when installed
- Heat sink fins are cleaned frequently
- Side cover removed on my system, plenty air get in and out

I will test my system temp.

What I found strange is the problem is momentary resolve when I removed the DVI cable for few seconds, then re-install it
