70% GPU load under DirectX but 8% under OpenGL?

Q: 70% GPU load under DirectX but 8% under OpenGL?

Can anyone help me figure this out?

My new GTX 670 is regularly hitting 88%-99% load when running DirectX based games & benchmarks, causing it to quickly overheat and "emergency shutdown" my (64bit) Win7 PC after about 10 minutes.

But if I use OpenGL, the GPU load (via "GPU-Z") is closer to about 8% (but doesn't look as good.)

I discovered I can keep the load below 70% by setting games to "limit the refresh rate to 120MHz", but 70% is still WAAAAY too high.

Anyone have any idea why DirectX (v11) might be taxing my GPU so badly? Thx

Preferred Solution: 70% GPU load under DirectX but 8% under OpenGL?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: 70% GPU load under DirectX but 8% under OpenGL?

Because it's supposed to? Nothing is wrong with 70% if temperatures are okay, like 90*C range.
You can turn up fan speed or cap your framerate until temperatures are decent otherwise.

I recently reinstalled win xp. Now, whenever I try to play a game I get the error message "could not load OpenGL subsystem." Also, when I try to install the drivers for a new network card from a cd, I get the install screen to show for only about 1/2 second, then it shuts off. Can I reinstall OpenGL and if so where can I find it.
 

A:can't load OpenGL

Can't tell from your post. Did you reinstall the latest drivers for you video card?

I have a Nvidia GeForce4 mx 440 card. After repairing my computer from a "Win32.Worm.VB.TB", I found that I still have a few issues such as the one in the title line: could not load OpenGL... I have reloaded the drivers from the Nvidia website, but nothing has changed.

it seems that your onboard graphic chipset doesn't support the features that the game needs this could be a directX or a 3dfx problem or both, what make is the on board graphics you are using and does it have the latest drivers installed also do you have the latest directX installed ?

I get the error "Could not load OpenGL subsystem" whenever I try to play quake3 with resolution above 1280x1024.
I'm running XP Pro.
3.0ghz, 1gbram, 128mb geforce fx 5200.

I uninstalled the drivers I had, and installed the latest drivers for my video card.

I checked my win.ini file for the DVA=0 line, it is not there, so that is not the problem either.

I even put my driver .dll's in Quake3's main directory which did not work.

I also set my accelreation all the way up to full. Which failed.

Help?

A:GLW_StartOpenGL() - could not load opengl subsystem

I'm not sure where you are getting the association with glide something or other. Opengl is a component of Windows. It might be you either have a graphics driver problem or your graphics card does not support the game.

A:Error: Can't Load OpenGL SubSystem (RtCW)

Check to see if there are any newer drivers available for that graphics card.
Other than that you'd have to try running in software rendering with the r_allowSoftwareGL "1" command in your config file.
Probably be far better off getting a new graphics card though.

A:Having DirectX Problem, Specifically DirectX Diagnostic

Hello Rudabega, welcome aboard.

The log you uploaded contains four elements beyond repair, as I apparently found.
keymgr.dll ==> non system service
korwbrkr.dll ==> non system service
kerboros.dll ==> non system service
d3d11.dll ==> DirectX Direct3D 11
► For the non system services, I am not very sure which software originated those files in your registry. The best what you can to deal with those is to download and install CCleaner > Run it > Click on the registry tab > scan for issues > fix selected issues.

► For DirectX Direct3D 11, I would say that it is inbuilt in windows. So if SFC is unable to fix it when windows is running, try SFC /SCANNOW : Run in Command Prompt at Boot

► But, for your situation, I would suggest you that a Repair Install would be the best option.

On running dxdiag, it states that I'm running DirectX 11, which is true. So I go into the registry, and the DirectX version key has the info that I'm quite sure is associated with DirectX 9.0. I tried changing the key (through regedit.exe) to the common 8.1 key in case it would work (so HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\directx\version to 4.08.01.0810 from 4.09.00.0904), yet even so dxdiag still states that I'm running DirectX 11. It surprised me that DirectX 11 had a 9.0 version key, and I know this method worked back in DirectX 9.0, so I'm thinking after 9.0 the version must be communicated in a way other than through the registry. Is there any way I could get my computer to detect DirectX 8.1 even for a short time in place of DirectX 11? Like am I missing a necessary key, or maybe is there a DirectX version synth program?

Thanks

Hello all who having issues i found a cool way and simple way how to fix this issue with out reformatting your PC... here a few things you might like about this

1st your need find the regedit in your windows xp click on start button and then run type in regedit wait till it loads

look for a thread like this one

Navigate to this key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DirectX

Change the value of version from ?4.010.00.0904? to ?4.09.00.0904?.

Now run the DirectX installer.?

then your done and oh ya before i forget

goto your C:/Windows/System 32 and delete the D3DX10_43.dll files if u have any

then you can reboot plus you can check after wards if u have 9.0c installed go find in your C:/Windows/System 32 a program named dxdiag.exe i hope i help solve your problem

Hello,

I just did a clean install on my laptop after installing a new SSD. I installed the drivers that I had to install manually, and then I did a Windows update for anything else. After getting everything setup I ran my first Windows Experience Index.

Surprising, the graphics score was only 5.0, but I am almost sure it was higher with the factory installation. I am runnng Aero but with most of the visual effects turned off. I viewed the assessment details and it showed this:



If you notice, the DirectX version is 10. But when I run dxdiag the version number in the report is 11. Here is my configuration, and please let me know if more information is needed. Thank you very much.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit made from ISO image: X17-58997.iso

A:DXDiag shows DirectX 11 but Windows Experience Index shows DirectX 10

I believe that WinSAT only test for DirectX 10 and 9, not 11. That's why it only shows DirectX 10. If your card fails to do the DirectX 10 test, then WinSAT will only display DirectX 9. Don't worry about it. If DxDiag shows DirectX 11, then your card can support it.

I have a DirectX 10, says the System Information. I want to downgrade my DirectX down to DirectX 9, because I want to know if the DirectX is the cause of my game's graphics problem.

Now, I have Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit System. Would downgrading DirectX be fatal? Would there be unacceptable changes?
If not:
a) Where can I download DirectX 9
b) How can I downgrade DirectX 10
c) How can I install DirectX 9
 

A:DirectX 10 downgrade to DirectX 9

What you are asking is nearly impossible to do. You can't downgrade your version of DirectX. There will be an option to unistall it, but the information of the version will remain in the regristry. And if you try to erase directx 10 out of the registry you will get trouble. So this is not the option.

To solve your VGA problem I would advice to download an older driver. Maybe that will help.

Good luck, let me know of it works.

Some of the games I have seen have the options to select which one to use, dx9 or 10 or 11.

Honestly, I have just a little approximate knowledge of what these do

most of them from experience.

- dx9 runs smoother (just for me i suppose)
- dx10 just adds shinys and i did not really use it. for some reason (in a couple of games i tried) it just hampered performance
- dx11 has tessellation and stuff

most of the search results from search engines primarily advertise gpu manufacturers boasting about how awesome games will look with their new gpus that support the latest directx (with "little" performance loss)

can someone enlighten me on this topic?

A:DirectX 9 to DirectX 11 : Which runs better?

DirectX is about improving multimedia to include games, videos, and audio - DirectX 11

Your DX modes also depends on not only the game, but the video card and OS - see step 6 of my guide here: Tips on Troubleshooting Game Issues.

Also, the higher the DX mode, the harder your system is tasked due to the increased textures (higher resolution) of the game, and this can have a huge impact on frame rates. This is where system build/components comes into play. Example higher end video cards tends to handle DX11 games more easily then mid to low end video cards. Same with system - a higher end system will perform better than a low to mid level system.

With today's systems being much more advanced than their predecessors were when DX9 was released there is somewhat of a "leveling" effect going on here. In other words today's systems are much more powerful and capable of handling more advanced multimedia (including games), and therefore require a more advanced DirectX API (Application Programming Interface). This is the reason for DX11, and the move towards DX12.

Yes, DX11 can task a system, but if the system is relatively new and upper mid level, this shouldn't be a problem. The problem comes in when trying to game with mid to low level systems/video cards. This is where you take a performance hit via frame rates. In this instance your can lower your DX mode, but at the cost of image quality - what most refer to as eye candy.

Hope this provides a better understanding.

Peace

DirectX 10 is built into Vista. You don't want to, and shouldn't downgrade, as DirectX 10 is backwards-compatible with 9.
All I can suggest if you're having difficulty with a game is the usual. Check for latest drivers from graphics card manufacturer (not from Windows Update). Tweak advanced settings for your graphics card if they're available. Tweak settings within the game. Check for updates and patches for the game. Contact tech support from the game maker and report the bug (be sure to tell them your exact setup and hardware and software specifications).

I also downloaded the latest driver from Intel, installed it, rebooted. It shows OpenGL dialogs exactly like these Graphics — OpenGL* Settings Guide. But the OpenGL apps just won't run.

I tried an OpenGL benchmark, Blender, Anim8or and Silo. They don't show any 3d picture, just a black or transparent window.

Now can you be good enough to explain what is OpenGL and why my Intel board (G43\45 Chip set board) and graphic accelerator not supporting OpenGL?

A:what is OpenGL

OpenGL is a graphics engine used by some games such as Call of Duty. It is not widely used anymore but most mainboards made from late 2007 support it. The problem normally appears from Nvidia graphics cards and the solution is not to install the latest drivers, but install an earlier one. v77.77 seems to work fine if you encounter this problem with an Nvidia card

Open GL is the opensource or comnunity developed

First get openglview to know what ver Opengl is supported by your card. In openglview it will suggest places to get that ver. You may have to just install just the open gl.

The opengl in the old counterstrike is... buggy.
Very very buggy, has been all the way back since the beta. (yes I was actually in the beta '98-99)
Disabling triplebuffering in the ati CCC may give you slightly better overall frames.
The dips will likely continue to occur though, the power of your graphics card isn't even really an issue.

Mobile Intel(R) 945 Chipset Family (Microsoft Corporation - Prerelease VDDM1.0) is what I have. I think that maybe the problem could be that it's a Microsoft prerelease driver version or somewhat.

Can anyone help me?

A:OpenGL Failure with CS 1.6

Boy do I have the exact same problem

Intel 945gm opengl not supported (but it is according to opengl extensions) and for sure its the driver. Are you using the Mfr's driver like they tell you to? Dont. Go to intel and get the driver for your system 32 or 64 and presto opengl sings. The intel driver may say it doesn't work and to get the driver from mfr dont believe it. There is a trick if you run into this problem

The mobo that I'm purchasing recommends using the Leadtek but it's the only one with openGL 1.5 support and doesn't mention anything about 2.0. The other 2 clearly state 2.0 on their specs.
I don't want to make the wrong decision, so any help is appreciated.

Recently, I have been experiencing problems when running games anything that uses opengl. The frame rate is decent for my rig but there is a lot of frame skipping, especially when there is a lot of on screen action. It's getting to be really annoying and I can barely do anything in opengl. My system specs are:

Motherboard: ECS K7S5A
CPU: AMD Duron @ 1.1ghz
Ram: 512 mb of PC133 SDRAM
Graphics: Nvidia GeForce 4 MX400
OS: Windows 98SE

I should also add, that my system runs pretty hot due to the cpu fan being half blocked by the PSU and I have no system fan. By hot, I mean an average of 55C for the CPU and 29C for the mobo. I'm not sure if this makes any difference. I also recently installed a new hard drive if that helps.

Any and all help and suggestions would be appreciated.

A:No webGL/openGL

You may need to enable it manually in your browser. I don't know what the default in Chrome is, but apparently it requires WebGL and hardware acceleration in order to work. Look at here:
How can I enable WebGL in my browser? - Super User

It may also be that you simply have an older version of the browser that didn't included support yet. If it doesn't works, try updating Chrome too.
Drivers shouldn't matter too much, if at all, unless very outdated.

I have problems with OpenGL games. They play normally for about five to ten minutes before either closing or restarting the computer. At first I thought that the problems are just the lack of OpenGL.dll files in the c:\windows\system folder, but when I downloaded some dll files for that the games still shut down, though they didn't restart the computer anymore...

I don't know what to do anymore...

Hello, i'm getting really bad artifacts in directx games but not in opengl games.
In doom 3 i havn't seen a single artifact yet, but in farcry and any other games that use direct3d im getting them.

Heres a couple Screenshots of farcry

ive tryed the 4.6 -4.9bata catalyst drivers and i have the newest chipset drivers and all my windowsxp updates. ive tryed out dx9.0c. I can get most of the artifacts to go away by underclocking my video ram but it seems kind of weird that with my vram at stock settings i can play d3 artifact free.

does any buddy know any other things i can try?

Thanks, Bender

Hi, I am using Win 8 CP. And my graphics card is Intel GMA 3100. I have to use photoshop and other apps but I can't enable opengl. I tried searching for relevant drivers but couldn't find them. Does anyone has some trick or method to enable opengl or can you provide me with the latest drivers.
I tried this link http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Deta...&DwnldID=21180

but it says "This system does not meet the minimum requirements".
Thankyou.

A:How to enable Opengl?

Well,it is because the driver from Windows 8 for Intel GMA is not included with OpenGL(well maybe all of on-box graphic driver from Win 8)try this one....... this is a customized signed Graphic Driver

Maybe after installing the driver the Ps will show a message,just ignore it.Good Luck!
(Well,it's work for Intel Series 4 Mobile,but i don't know about the Series 3,maybe you can ask to that driver provider)

A:Another OpenGL Thread.

OK, I had this issue at first....

My GT555M was giving me a similar message even though
Windows said that the drivers were up-to-date.

So, I went to the Nvidia website, and got the latest drivers
from there, then installed them, rather than the drivers
Windows installs by default..

Problem fixed, all my openGL stuff works again.

Here's a link to the latest Nvidia driver for your GT410M...

NVIDIA DRIVERS 306.97WHQL

Hope this helps.

A:OpenGL Error

So I downloaded and installed OpenGL Extensions Viewer and it tells me that I have OpenGL 1.1 when my video card can support up to 4.1* (or so says the Nvidia website), and it also says that 4.1* isn't compatible, any clue on this or am I just reading this all wrong?


I'm thinking I have to re-install my graphics card, but not sure if necessary/how to do it.

EDIT: Actually it only supports up to 4.1 it looks like, but still it still says unsupported on the application.
