That's why adding ram could help. 2 gb is on the low side, especially for x64 IMHO.
I have done some tests and this lag is not connected with CPU load or disk usage. I've noticed another thing when moving windows. First, when i move window for short amount of time, everything is OK (no lag). But after few seconds (1-3) , while still dragging window, i can see a great FPS loss and choppy animation. When i release window, everything starts again (eg. firstly OK ,then lag) The same effect exists when resizing a window.

Thanks for the specs. I notice your running 64bit with 2 gigs of ram. the lag may be just retrieving from page file. How bid is your page file set to?

It may be connected with it but i found no solutions in this thread.
I have just noticed that the biggest lag is when using "magnifier". I think i receive up to 5 FPS, even mouse cursor is very choppy.

Page file is set to 2 -3 Gigs. Currently allocated is 2 Gigs.

Not saying it is going to help you, albeit it was just the medicine for my system.

Oh, Welcome To The Forums.
i was using 64bit vista and 64bit7 with 2gbs ram and had no problems

id say it something related to ure video card drivers



if thats the only problem ure having is just aero effect

have you tried uninstalling all ati items

and reinstalling http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_ca...indows-7-64bit

I have a clean installation of Windows, so i dont think unistalling drivers can help -current drivers are first I installed, so everything should be fine.
Thank U all for replays, and I am wating for further suggestions.

Wow a clean build with what really acts like memory problems. If this was NOT a clean install, I'd wonder what other applications or processes are in use. Still, I'd take a look and see through the task manager if there is anything tapping the system out. I ran with an ATI card for a long time and quit the cards after seeing the driver/memory footprints - and I was running with 4MB on a 32-bit version of XP at the time.
Is there anybody you could borrow some RAM from? I'm all for trying the fast and easy physical stuff before diving into the software. Otherwise.. what are the programs being loaded into memory?

I have this same problem. Clean install of Win7 64 running forceware 190.62. The problem also occurs when I drag a window between monitors. Switching from Aero to basic did fix it. Never had this problem in Vista64 though. I hope this gets fixed for real.

For some of you who are upgrading your OS from Vista to Win 7 you have to remember that your system/computer was optimized by the manufacture to run smoothly with Vista, or XP. MY Gateway FX-7026 runs Vista just a little faster, and smoother than Win 7. Now if you feel that more ram is not the answer, then it can be only one thing, and that is Video Card or it's drivers.

Using two monitors (28" and 22") along with a Nvidia Gforce 8800 GT OC (512 mg) with 8 gigs of ram I have attempted to create the same programs you are talking about, and as of yet haven't been able. It has me stumped. Back to the drawing board.
