Windows 7: Windows has Detected your Computers Performance is slow

Windows has Detected your Computers Performance is slow

Hi There!

I have an I7 920 Processor PC running at 3.6Ghz. I recently upgraded to a ATI HD5970 2GB graphics card, and despite this, every few hours/days I get errors on my desktop about how windows has adjusted my colour scheme to basic because of performance.

I am running the latest drivers 10.3 ATI have, but it was happening on earlier versions as well.

I have 12GB memory and not much running, though I do run games sometimes.

Anyone able to shed light on what's causing this, or what specific thresholds are being breached for this condition to occur?

Did this problem arise since you upgraded your card, or was it going on before then?

Whenever I get that message, it's because I am running CPU intensive apps, like Debut and VirtualBox at the same time.

Next time that message pops up, could you please post a screenshot of the Performance tab of Task Manager?
