Windows 7: Draw delay in win7?

Draw delay in win7?

Has anyone else noticed a delay in Windows 7 when drawing, either with the mouse or a tablet in the adobe CS4 products? The cursor will move at the right speed, but it's like the line has to catch up to the cursor. It's done it in every Adobe product I've tried. Crappy little MS paint seems to keep up with the cursor though. I also notice a delay when just drawing a selection box on the desktop...

Anyone else had this problem or know how to fix it?

I had the same CS4 problem as you, not the desktop selection though.
I used extra scratch disks and upped the RAM usage and CS4 now runs nicely.
Oddly, it ran perfectly under Vista with no additional scratch disks, and the default RAM usage.

hmmm. I upped the ram, and turned off all the fancy aero crap and still having the same issue.

What about changing the some of the Performance options in Advanced System Settings.
(ignore the highlights ).

Have you tried (in Photoshop) reducing the number of history slates and cache levels?
The fact that you see the same thing on the desktop however, does lead me to think that it may not be Adobe.

I've played around with the photoshop caches and histories and it also didn't change anything.

I just installed Windows 7 so I'm not totally familiar with all the tweaks. This totally helped. I turned it to best performance and still got some trailing in photoshop, but then I played with the different options and have gotten it to the point where no other programs trail and it's nowhere near as noticable in photoshop. Actually the more I play with it, it's not really trailing at all anymore, well depending on the brush i'm using apparently. I guess I need an upgrade.

I'm running a Q6600 which I want to oc to 3.ghz, 4gigs of corsair ram, a p6n diamond mobo, 750w ps, sb titanium x-fi, and an 8800GTS(512), with a couple of raptor drives. I think if I oc my cpu and upgrade my vid card I'd be set. I'm thinking maybe I should upgrade my ram too. I think my mobo can handle up to 16gig of ram.

Take a look at my specs, i have nowhere near what you have and PS-CS4 works perfectly (with the aforementioned tweaks) on my setup. Are you sure all of your drivers are up to date, in particular your graphics card. Are you taking advantage of OpenGL Drawing?
I believe you should be using this driver, is that the case?

I know it sounds stupid and maybe it's a placebo thing but when i had the same problem i found that having the screen a little smaller than full screen helped with the 'lag'.

Yeah, I did a fresh install of everything when I installed 7. I got all the latest drivers. I don't know if this makes a difference but i'm on 64-bit windows.

dude you know what. Since you mentioned the open gl thing I looked deeper into the settings. Vertical sync. I think vertical sync was causing probs. If I set my theme to windows basic, and disable vertical sync, I don't encounter the problems.

when all the extras are enabled in windows, does it enable vertical sync somewhere? does windows have a setting for that?

Try looking in your nvidia control panel.

My nvidia panel has it set to be whatever the 3D application tells it to be. Hence I ask, does windows have a setting for it when the effects are turned on. I haven't been able to find one.
