Windows 7: Odd slow-motion animation effect?

26 Mar 2009   #1

Odd slow-motion animation effect?

This one is a strange bug.

Every now and then after a restart, all the animations act as if they are in slow-motion ie maximize/minimize, dialogue boxes, live preview windows, aero peek, flip 3d etc.

It's exactly the same effect as the Vista slow animation reg hack, except It's doing it on it's own in build 7048

It's usually solved by restarting again.

It's good to see the animation in detail, but it's starting to getting a little annoying

Anyone else had this occur?

mine does this from time to time mate....... on vista & W7

it seems for some odd reason the GFX driver fails to load correctly yet its still there b/c Aero remains enabled...?? everything is super slow, but the driver checks out..??

a reboot always solves it, but it is strange...

Vista Ult 64bit - Windows 7 Ult 7264 64bit

I haven't gotten that one yet on 7057, but I find a "lag" when selecting things sometimes.
I remember posting to a thread from another guy back with 7000 where he said things were lagging 1-2 seconds behind when he clicked on whatever, and I really didn't think anything of it. But now I'm having the same thing happen at times and it's a major PITB! I use the Checkbox to select items option and if I'm selecting a number of items, it can take a second or two for the checkmark to be applied to a selected item.

Bugs the CR@P outta me!!
I just hope that I don't get the one you're talking about Smarty, or I just may go Ballistic...
I find 7057 to be a bit buggier than the other builds we've tried but I'm stubbornly sticking with it for now.

windows 7
same here


The same happen here, but it goes when you restart the computer but I'm afraid that the odd slow-motion animation bug comes again in the future.

Just to let everyone know, this is not something regarding graphic card as I have a ATI Radeon and everyone is saying that have a NVidia card.

My configuration:
Windows 7 x64 Ultimate
Processor Quad 9450 2.66Ghz
Ram: 8GB
Graphic Card: ATI Radeon hd4850
Motherboard: Asus P5E Deluxe
Audio card: SoundMax Integrated Digital Audio

I've included the audio card because I read in some place that another user has the same card. This just happen after update the audio driver for windows 7.
