Windows 7: Nvidia driver problem with win 7 x64?

I tried updating my chipset drivers as well and that did not solve the problem.

I have also tried the latest released driver (191.07) and the latest beta driver (195.39) both with the same results

Can you show us a screenshot of when you right click the card in device manager and choose properties, then driver tab?

You're welcome. That seems cool so really only other thing that would affect performance is chipset drivers. If that's all up to date as well, graphics should run well.

In this case, don't pay any attention to the WEI rating and enjoy.

Are there any exclamation points showing in the device manager?

No exclamation points in device manager.

I'm not really concerned about the WEI number, but I'm taking that as another symptom of whatever the problem is. The biggest problem is that I see things responding slowly on screen. (i.e. Starting a new minesweeper game, the tile animation "stutters" also when starting a new solitaire game the card dealing animation is not smooth and skips) Also, I'm seeing extremely slow performance when navigating to a new web page and even when opening a new blank tab.

So, I'm digging (clutching at straws) to find the cause of the problem and get it remedied

I hear ya. What you could do is go to start menu search box. Type system information then hit enter. On the sceen that pops up, hit ctrl+s.

Use Winrar or zip the saved file and attach to a post with the paperclip. I can have a look and see if there's anything I can say about it.

Have you tried uninstalling any nVidia drivers (making sure to delete the files, if that option is presented), rebooting, then going to Windows Update to see what drivers are found for your video card?

I have already done that and unfortunately had no luck. Thanks for the suggestion!
