Windows 7: Lag/Laggy animations with multiple displays (Extend desktop)

21 Jun 2016   #31

Windows 7 home premium 64bit

Well, I know this is an old topic but it's still relevant today.

I have fix for this specific issue. This problem can be solved by resetting the refresh on your monitor in the windows display settings. Problem is caused by the monitors refresh rate becoming desyncronized and the information that the cpu/gpu is processing is not being displayed on your screen.
