Windows 7: Choppy Video and Sound when Full Screen

Choppy Video and Sound when Full Screen

I recently installed Win 7 Home Premium on my laptop and I am having trouble watching videos in full screen. When full screen is enabled, my cpu usage jumps to 60% and video lags and sound is choppy. I dont know what the problem is exactly, but I believe it may have something to do with Win 7 because I did not encounter this problem before. Thanks

Hi Krazer,

It looks like you have the newest driver version (195.62) but perhaps you downloaded the wrong bit-architecture? See links below.

Windows 7 32-bit

Windows 7 64-bit

Let me know if that's not your case.
