Performance degradation & video display becomes patchy

Q: Performance degradation & video display becomes patchy

Hello

System Specs:

HP/Compaq 8710p laptop
Windows XP SP3
Kaspersky Internet Security

Symptoms over past few months:

After using computer for many hours (8+) performance drastically degrades and the screen display eventually becomes patchy with text and graphics missing. At this point the computer is no longer functional and must be Shut Down. Sometimes a forced power off is required as it won't shut down normally.

After re-boot the computer is back to normal but the problem is consistent.

I occassionally get the "Blue Screen of Death" with reference to "nv4_disp.dll". This has happened approximately once every 3 months over the past year. Eventually I re-installed the Display driver but this hasn't changed the situation.

I have run Malwarebyte's Anti-malware and Kaspersky Anti-virus scans regularly.

Any ideas you have to help resolve this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Becky

Preferred Solution: Performance degradation & video display becomes patchy

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: Performance degradation & video display becomes patchy

Have you noticed the machine getting hot when the graphics errors occur? Download Speedfan (free app) and monitor your CPU and more importantly your GPU temperatures. Check your temps with the operating temps on the chip manufacturers site. If yours are getting too hot it would explain the slow performance and graphics errors.

To resolve first check your fan is running properly and the fan and heatsink are clean from dust/hair. Also consider cleaning off the old thermal paste and applying a high quality paste to the chips.

What is the BSOD error code?

I am running an Elsa Gladiac2 GTS w/32 meg ddr. My problem is the longer my computer is running the slower my graphics card becomes. If I reboot, my performance comes back.
I am using the Nvidia driver 4.12.01.0650. Can someone tell me why I lose performance the longer my system is on, by about half according to 3Dmark 2000? I don't think it is heat related, because I warm boot and the performance comes back.

Thanks,
Rod

Nice rig. What are your system resources running. If there dropping that could be the cause. If it where heat it would lock.
Try the 6.34 or 6.31 drivers, I still think they are better and more stable than 6.50's
try this tweak guide, man knows what he is talking about

Please provide this information so we can provide a complete analysis (from the Pinned Topic at the top of the forum):  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/576314/blue-screen-of-death-bsod-posting-instructions-windows-10-81-8-7-vista/
Should you have problems with the perfmon report, please disregard it (I don't use it very much anyway).
Should the app lock up for more than 15 minutes while searching for Network information (it does this in my copy of W10), go ahead and kill the app. 
Then navigate to the Documents folder and zip up the 18 reports in the SysnativeFileCollectionApp folder - then upload that with your next post.
If that doesn't work, then you can try this new app (from a friend of mine):  http://omgdebugging.com/bsod-inspector/
When done a Notepad document will open with the name of the file and it's location.
By default it'll be a .zip file located on your Desktop
Simply upload the .zip file with your next post and we'll move on from there.

I have a Microsoft Wireless Notebook Laser Mouse 7000 that I am using. Sometimes the cursor just sticks and won't move properly and I can't figure out why. I am trying to use it about 10-12 feet from the tower where the receiver is plugged in. When I use the mouse about 2 feet from the receiver it works fine. I thought this mouse was suppose to cover a 30 foot distance. I also have the router right next to the mouse's wireless receiver and not sure if the 2.4 GHZ Frequency interferes. I have tried new batteries and downloading updated drivers, but had no luck. Any ideas would be appreciated.
 

A:Microsoft Wireless Mouse with patchy performance!

You have pretty much determined its a distance issue. Distance can vary by the quality of the hardware and any interference within the room. Not too mention it's a notebook mouse, so the primary concern wasn't in achieving great distance.

Is the receiver out in the open?

I know on my computer case, the case extends out beyond the rear USB ports for the receiver and the mouse hardly worked 2 ft away. It worked fine when attached to the front panel of the case, but that wasn't conveinent so I used a USB extension cable to move the receiver under my desk over by the mouse.

Hi all
With Windows XP I found that you needed to re-install it every so often as it would eventually get more sluggish. In fact people accepted gradual performance degradation as normal.

I've been running various Windows 7 machines for a few months now and have only had to re-install Windows because I've changed certain items of hardware / re-arranged disks etc.

I haven't had ANY problems with "Gradual Performance degradation" -- so another "Satisfied Customer".

We are experiencing a serious performance degradation with the 256Gb NVMe HP Z Turbo Drive SSD in the ZBook Studio G3. It happens with 2 identical ZBooks we ordered so it's not onefold problem.When I received this machine early February, the SSD read performance (as measured with hdparm on linux) was over 2200Mb/s, now it's slighly over 1500 Mb/s and it seems to degrade continuously, based on past weeks' measurements. I did a manual trim on the drive using fstrim now and it trimmed 1.5Gb of data, but read performance is still "only" around 1600 Mb/s. I recall having similar problems with a Samsung 840 Evo drive previously - a firmware upgrade solved that case back then. Is this problem with the Z Turbo Drive something similar? Could it be solved with a firmware upgrade on the drive? Anyone's working on that already?

I'm sure a lot of people have this problem, and it's seriously killing me.

I don't normally notice it, but any time a game is loading or a song or video is buffering...it just stops. I know this is likely due to a short screwup in my connection.

What I don't know is why my internet bounces offline, then back on or how to fix it. I'm hoping I just need to put filters on all my phone jacks, which will be done shortly.

Please help, as I have run out of reliable sources.

I also have a wireless router, if that makes a difference.

If you are using DSL and don't have filters on ALL the phone equipment EXCEPT the DSL modem, that's an obvious first step!

A:Win 7, can't communicate with DNS server - patchy issue

we will go over old ground i'm afraid here

1) you have zonealarm, as a virus product do you also have the firewall - make sure you remove all firewalls an use the removal tools - give us a list of what has ever been on the pc and we can give the tools address

2) have you gone to the manufactures website and updated the driver or actually re-installed the driver

3) quite a few things to try below
a) tcp/ip reset
b) ping tests - please do all three - would you post the following tests when the internet is working OK, and then repeat ALL the tests when the internet disconnects.
Make sure you also indicate on the reply which tests are for what condition.
c) Change DNS servers and see if that resolves the issue
d) Uninstall the driver and re-install
e) Post an xirrus screen shot
f) Have you looked into channel interference - the xirrus screen shot will help with that

Okay, here's what I want to do. I want to send video output to a Plasma in my family room and also have output to the computer monitor in the adjacent office. I have the option of using either VGA or DVI to either monitor, so I can use a video card that has dual VGA/DVI outputs. Or, I can buy a separate PCI video card. Right now I have an ATI All-in-Wonder 7500.

Am I better off to get a new video card with dual monitor output or have two separate video cards. If the former, what video cards do you recommend? I know I've seen recommendations for the 9600 Pro, which seems to have dropped significantly in price? I'd like to stay with ATI as I've always used that.

Prior to a "System Recovery" FS9 was operating without problem.

Since the recovery I get frequent system lockups or or badly pixilated (?) screen.

To this point I have upgraded my nVidea drivers, re-downloaded 'Direct X', run benchmarks (System Mechanic 6), and reinstalled FS9 (next step would be to remove all files after installation but I have years! of added scenery and aircraft - hoping to avoid that!).

I will attach further information re the computer and the problem. If further information is required just let me know, thanks!

Does anyone have a suggestion, I am out of ideas.

Wow, it just might be the ancient processor you have and the very small amount of Ram you have. Video really eats up resources and I think you dont have the power to run it without problems, The key here is that when you minimize your preview window in Media Player, you have less problems.

So basically i did bunch of dual display setups before but using two video cards or using one video card with two outputs but this is the FIRST TIME im trying with a built in intergrated card and a PCI card.

Heres the issue.

I hooked up the PCI video card and when i plugg both monitors in, the intergrated video card gives a yellow exclamation point in the device manager and nothing shows up on the monitor. Only the PCI video card shows signal..

I tried un-installing both cards, redoing it from ground up, tried disabling and renabling both cards but only one monitor shows up and that is the PCI card.
What do you guys think?

Thanks

Check that the on-board video is enabled in the Bios.

It's possible you can't have both working at the same time, should be able to check this if you know what motherboard it is.

So I got this issues almost on all my windows systems over some time, started I guess since win 7.
Basically, after Windows fresh install all goes fine, rebooting goes well and apps starting fast. But after some time, a week or so, Windows starts really slowly. Once I turn on PC, Windows loads into explorer and starting to slowly load skype and QIP (icq). Doing cleaning with CCleaner doesn't help much. After it loads skype and qip it needs like 2-3 mins to "start working properly" cuz if I start launching Firefox, for example, it will load really slow and all tabs gonna freeze for few seconds. Just lagfest...

Any ideas how I can bring back fast start without reinstalling OS?

I am having issues with my Vista machine's network bandwidth ---

It is a WIRED connection to a Linksys WRT54GS using a Marvell Yukon 88E8071 PCI-E 1GB network adapter.

Over the course of time the Vista machine is up, the network bandwidth download speed decrease significantly ( 60% of what it should be ). Rebooting restores the bandwidth to what I think it should be ( My wirless XP machines (2) work perfectly ).

I have updated the network adapter driver, removed the MMCSS dependency, and disabled TCP autotuning parm ( using netsh ). Nothing has worked -- Can you help ?

Here is the test run after the machine has been up and running for few hours :

( bottom number is upload speed which is greater than download speed !!!!!!! )

Here is the test run directly after rebooting :


I am also attaching a summary so you can see the fluctuations ( left hand column is download / right is upload speed ) :

A:Help Please - Vista Network Bandwidth degradation

These are testing your WAN bandwith, if other computers on the network are downloading/uploading then it will lower your WAN bandwith. Basically, this isn't an accurate measure of your network card since there are so many other things coming into play (your ISP, peek usage times for your ISP, latency between hops, etc). Try transferring a file over your network and see if it's slow. If your network card is actually being slowed down then your files would transfer extremely slow. Also, if it is a 1gbps adapter then your actually being lowered to a lot less then 60%, 1gbps = 1,000,000kbps so if your actually being lowered to 5000kbps then your actually at 0.005% of your network adapter's speed, which I doubt. And yes I know that 1gbps isn't actually 1,000,000kbps after overhead, etc, either way it doesn't add up...).

So, try transferring a large file after restarting your computer and see how fast it goes then try transferring one when you think its slow and see how fast it goes. Post the results here.

Beginning this past Friday, I have had enormous problems with Internet connection speed.  I had Bitdefender Plus installed; I have scanned the computer with that, Malwarbytes and even run ComboFix, but found no infection on the computer.  The seems to be with something either downloading or uploading from my computer - none of the other computers on the network seem to be affected.  In a three hour period on Monday, our network downloaded more than 10GB of data - though none of us were downloading anything at all.  While I'm writing this, I'm running MalwareBytes again, just it in case some new profile gets picked up. 
 
Any suggestions on how I should proceed?

Ok so I've been doing some serious skinning lately building everything in photoshp and then slicing up for various app skins etc.. to my dismay!! I have noticed a degradation when desktop backgrounds are applied, it appears that images are converted and turned into a low quality jpegs, a noticeable increase in noise and artifacting occurs.
Im not sure if this is a new thing or if its always been an issue in windows I guess my intense scrutiny of every pixel has driven me mad!!!



the images are resized so you need to click on them to notice.

Is there any way around this?

Since Malwarebytes was successful in removing the malware, I registered it and had in running in the background. I noticed it would occassionally block websites that I deemed safe so I right clicked on the Malwarebytes icon and unchecked the website blocking feature. Forgeting to turn it back on, I begin running the system as usual and immediatley noticed pages loading quicker, no audio distortion and dload speeds back to normal. I turned it back on, to be sure, and as suspected the distortion started. So that definately was the issue in this case. Thanks to all who took a look at this.

K. This is a really weird one. I had a problem with an unresolvable bug slowing down my computer (2.4 Ghz P4, i845,1gb Ram & 128 MB GeForce4 Ti4800) so I did a deep reformat and re-installation of W2K Pro and all of my software.

Now for some reason, my polygon rates measured in my programs (Nascar Heat FS2002 etc...), only equate to 1/4 of what they used to be regardless of what version of DirectX or NVidia Software Driver I'm running.

Has my motherboard/CPU/RAM become trash as a result of the bug I had before??

I tried Reformat/Reinstallation several times (with both Fat32 and NTFS) and have not been able to solve the problem.

Help!!!!!

I recently went to PCPitstop.com to see how my system was doing and after I ran the tests it said that my video card was underperforming.

Video performance of this system, 38.55 megapixels per second, is significantly lower than average. Systems with the same processor and amount of memory typically perform at a level of 58.1 MPS.Click to expand...

My video card is an NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro.

I went to NVIDIA's web-site and downloaded the latest drivers and ran the tests again and there was virtually no noticable difference.

If anyone has an idea/solution it would be much appreciated...

A:video card performance

I would think it's your video card slowing you down

The M64 is an older much slower chip then the current

It only has half the transfer bandwidth of the tnt2 ultra's and nowhere close to the gforce chips.

A:Laggy/Bad Video Performance? Or what..

Hi and welcome to TSG.

Just a few questions,

Have you made any changes to the system (hardware / software) recently or around the time the problem started?

Is the problem only when you play games or do you get some problems during other applications / programs?

Have you cleaned out your system at all? Build up of dirrt inside the case can cause heat problems which can manifest themselves in many ways.

Do you run a Firewall, Anti-Virus, Anti-Malware programs at all, if so which ones?

Can you list your full system specs. If its a pre-built machine (HP, Dell etc) then a make and model should be enough assuming you haven't made any hardware changes. If its a self build then CPU, Motherboard, RAM, Hard Drives, CD Drives, Power Supply (Make, model and wattage) etc.

The most info you can give us the quicker we can help get to the root of the problem.

I recently installed a PNY tnt-2 32 meg video card on a system with a 200mhz pentium. i realize that, to get the performance i am looking for, the processor isnt quite as fast as it should be, and that a 64 meg videocard is preferable.
my question is, are there any tweaks to boost the video performance, ie. limiting sound, etc..

i have 256 megs of ram and am running win98.
the isssue is with the game Vietnam-Black Ops and it says it recommends 16 meg. still some choppiness while playing, and reducing the screen size helps a little.

happy new year!

A:Maximizing Video Performance

Hello Fred44,
Try these two free and easy to use apps to speed up your system.

Malwarebytes.org

Piriform - Download Backup Registry When Prompted.

These will clear out all junk files and malware.

Follow this tutorial. It will ensure that your file system is in good order.

System Files - SFC Command

Go to the manufacturers site and update all your drivers, sound, video, chipset, and any others they have on offer.


Also, go to Run, type "msconfig" (no quotes), click on startup tab, take a look there at what is being started with Windows, uncheck anything that is not needed by Vista. Anything you stop, can be started manually when needed.
If you are not sure as to what you can close, take a picture and upload it, we can advise as to what you can shut off.

The problems with the you tube videos are likely to be with the server, however, check to see if there are any updates for your flash player, and disable all the add-ons you don't use in IE.

Follow these steps, and it will ensure that your system is malware free, and your files and drivers are in good order.

Hope this helps, good luck and post your results.

Hey guys, I need some assistance. A couple of weeks ago my system played videos smooth with no problems. But now any video including flash play slow and and cpu usage goes to 100%. It doesn't even matter if it's low resolution, it still sticks. I'd appreciate any suggestions.

A:slow video performance

Is this a desktop, a laptop ? What are the brand and model of the computer or the full system specs if it's a custom build ?

If it's a desktop enter the BIOS at startup, locate the hardware monitor screen and report the temps, fan speeds and voltages. Turn the power off, unplug the power cord, open the computer case and clean any dust you see on the fans and heatsinks (CPU, video card, power supply).

Have you installed new programs since then ?

Is their anyone on this forum who knows of a good program to test the performance of a video adapter and test to see if it is working correctly. Preferably one with diagnostic capabilities.

Any advice appreciated.
 

A:video adapter performance

Any number of diagnostic programs can test your video adapter, but you may have difficulty finding one that'll test it thoroughly. Programs such as Norton and Nuts & Bolts do a cursory test and don't really put the video through it's paces very much. You may want to run a simple directX diagnostic to make sure it's up to snuff for games that need directX. You should find a program called dxdiag.exe in your c:\windows\system folder, or your could run a search for it by typing dxdiag in "find" on your start menu. The program icon is a big yellow X on a blue background.

If there's a good utility to do what you're looking to do, someone here will know, they're surprisingly resourceful!

Hi,

I have found a bug on 2 Pc(s) with Vista 64 and 32.

When i listen a sound (mp3, divx, dvd etc.) in windows -> the bandwidth become low.

I use iperf to see it and why i use this tool, it's because when i streaming from PC to my PC, it's work very well only if i disable the sound.

Without sound : the datarate is equal to 90Mbytes (my network is gigabit).
With sound if wmplayer, powerdvd, winamp etc. : the datarate is equal to 5.8Mbytes.

i see it too if i transfert file on net work, if no soft with sound is open -> All work done.

Thx for your help,

A:Vista Network Gigabit Bandwidth degradation when audio is on.

Hi,

i found a solution :
Reports have been flooding the web that the network transfer speed of Windows Vista drops to a low level when the user plays music at the same time. While there does not seem to be a obvious connection between network transfers and sounds being played and everyone would probably consider other possibilities first it seems that a service called MMCSS, the Multimedia Class Scheduler Service.
Mark Russinovich described the technical process in his blog explaining that ?when a multimedia application begins playback, the multimedia APIs it uses call the MMCSS service to boost the priority of the playback thread into the realtime range? which basically means that every other thread - including network transfers - see a performance drop because of this.

The following method has been working for most users who experienced the slowdown in network traffic in Vista while playing music.
Don?t play music while transferring files. This is pretty obvious but probably not the best solution for most users
Remove the MMCSS dependency of Windows Audio in the registry. To do that navigate to the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SYSTEM \CurrentControlSet \Services \Audiosrv, right-click the DependOnService string and remove MMCSS from it.

Solution @ Fix for slow Vista Network Transfer while playing Music

----------------------------------
The fix involves editing the Registry to turn off Network Throttling. As always create a System Restore Point to backup your Registry, then follow the steps below.
Click the Start Orb and type Regedit in the search box.
Click Regedit.exe at the top of the search results under programs.
if you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Continue.
Navigate to the following key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionMultimediaSystemProfile
In the right hand pane double click NetworkThrottlingIndex and type in FFFFFFFF (that?s 8 F?s) in the Hexadecimal field.
Click Ok and restart your computer for the settings to take effect.

My Windows 7 PC experiences a jump from normal 4mS ping to 40-50mS ping after 1 to 5 days operation. The PC is connected directly to my fibre router/modem which connects to other PC's, all of which do not have the fault. The jump in the ping is accompanied by a fall in upload/download speeds from 100Mbps to 5-10Mbps in both directions, but after 2-3 hours this corrects itself and returns to 100/100Mbps. But the slow pings remain.

An example JPG trace attached.

To correct the problem, I disable, then enable my LAN adapter card. This works every time until the next occurance.

I have substituted a new LAN adapter card, (different brand, Intel, vs Realtek on motherboard), which has no effect.

My conclusion is there is something in the PC setup causing the problem.

Can anyone suggest how I might find out what this is?

I think it may have something to do with Java. Getting a lot of bad jumpy performance with my computer. Videos at Gamespot and Youtube stutter terribly. NEVER had this problem before. Installed Java recently and now everything seems to be running pretty slowly and getting hang ups loading pages on the net. Anything I can do?

A:Video stuttering and buggy performance.

That is a possibility. I have also seen issues with Flash 10.1.
The easiest way to check would be dependent on when the upgrade took place.

A system restore to a time prior should help to pinpoint the cause.
Was the upgrade recent? I know on one of my systems it was today for Java, so I will need to keep an eye on it.

When I playback video on my computer screen, it works perfectly, but when I move the player window over to my plasma screen there is a lot of tearing in the picture and sometimes the playback slows down. I've tried changing resolution and frequency, but that doesn't make it any better. I've also tried setting Media Player Classic to display the video as Direct3D and turning on vertical sync, but that didn't help either.
How can I get smooth video playback on my plasma tv?

My video card is a GeForce 7600GS, with the latest display drivers.

A:Solved: unusally low video performance

PCPitstop gives terrible video card recommendations. I would be more inclined to use somthing like the 3DMark or PCMark line of benchmarks to give a true idea of how your system is doing.

That said the 9250 is NOT a gaming video card. It's performance and quality in most games is low.

Post your full system specs and what games you play.

You may be able to get a little boost in performance up updating some drivers, like going ot the latest ATI Catalyst drivers.

A:Terrible performance on video playback

Now I switched the Windows Theme to - Windows classic, which simplified a lot of the displayed windows. (previous was an aero theme)

This gave a lot to the performance.
Still all 720 and 1080p videos are on frames - around 12-20 fps, depending of the screen resolution and the codec.
I guess it would be great for future implementation a full screen program to turn off the aero themes. Just as an option for slower videocards.

I recently upgraded my ATI Radeon 9200 to an ATI Radeon x800 XL recently, and I don't see much of a performance upgrade. I've updated the drivers, have a 350 watt power supply, and yet in my games performance seems just about the same (frame rate wise, despite I keep the settings the same.) Is there something holding me back?

System:
1 gig of ram
2.4 GHZ P4 CPU
350 watt power supply
ATI Radeon x800 XL
Motherboard: L4SMG with an SiS chipset (cannot overclock cpu )

My motherboard is 4x AGP compatable, as is this card.

I went into my BIOS and changed my AGP aperature size to 256 MB, and that helped performance a little bit. 64 and 128 seem to bog down performance instead.

(I'm sorry if this is in the wrong forum, but this one seems more relavant.)

Okay, now I know if you bridge two cards together with the SLI bridge, it will not double your graphics capabilities, but if my windows rating is 4.8 due to my graphics card, and if I bridge them, how much of a bump might I see? FYI, I have an Nvidia GeForce 8500 GT... nothing fancy, but it does okay.

Also, does the card have to be exactly the same card when you bridge it, or can it be something slightly different or quite a bit different?

Thanks!!

A:Video Performance Rating w/ SLI Bridge

SLI'ing two cards together won't really give much of an increase to your Windows rating score. When I had Vista with dual 7600s, it only increased the graphic score by like .1 or .2 I think, so nothing major.

You have to use the same model card, so it has to be another 8500GT with, ideally, the same amount of VRAM as the primary card. You can use any brand of card, such as you can SLI an ASUS 8500GT to say an XFX 8500GT and so on. If the clock speeds of either of the cards are different, then the one with the faster clock speeds will downclock it self to match the speeds of the slower card.

You can't SLI two totally different cards together i.e. you can't go out and buy an 8800GT to SLI with your 8500GT.

I was wondering if there is a way to increase the performance of my laptops integrated video card.... Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD which uses shared video memory.
 

A:How to increase performance of video/fps on laptop

You can try GMABooster, but I recommend using with caution. Since it allows you to overclock the on-board video, you may decrease the life of your battery and your computer, or even potentially cause great harm to your motherboard if not used properly. Otherwise, I recommend buying a new/better laptop with a discrete video card.

Hello,

I have an odd problem in Windows Vista SP1. I have a 2Ghz Core2Duo Processor, 2GB RAM, Nvidia GeForce 8600M GT, 2 x 160GB Hard Drives in a RAID0 configuration.

Whenever I play videos that has fast moving scenes, the top 1/3rd of the screen flickers slightly if I'm using the Windows Classic theme. I have no problem playing the same video using the Vista theme. I can't figure out why video has performance issues in the Windows Classic theme.

Is there a setting somewhere that I should look for? I do not like the vista theme at all but I have to use it before watching videos to avoid this problem.

A:Video Performance Decrease: Adware.lopgen

Hello,I can't see anything suspicious in your log.As a sidenote, I notice from your log that you are running more than one different Anti-Virus programs with Auto-protect enabled. Norton and BitdefenderNever install more than one Antivirus and Firewall! Rather than giving you extra protection, it will decrease the reliability of it seriously! The reason for this is that if both products have their automatic (Real-Time) protection switched on, your system may lock up due to both software products attempting to access the same file at the same time. Also because more than one Antivirus and Firewall installed are not compatible with eachother, it can cause system performance problems and a serious system slowdown. I would strongly advise you to only have one Anti-Virus with the Auto-Protect feature running at any one time!If you decide to only keep one Anti-Virus installed, you should uninstall the other(s) through the Add or Remove Programs option in Control Panel.

I am really puzzled, I got the basic Studio model, Quadro M1000M, i7-6700HQ, and to my dissapointment, the setting up process has been quite lengthy. I have been almost 10 hours negotiating updates using the HP Support Assistants, including failed attempts to update Thunderbolt 3 Secure Content; also updating the USB controller, rendered unusable my USB keyboard/mouse, so that I had to go back to a restore point. Video playback in premiere has been quite choppy; I would have guessed that because I got the1080p panel, video would be faster as it does not have to render so many pixels.

I've got a HP Pavilion with a crappy built in video card. I have not been able to find a store that sells video cards for laptops and even if I did, are they very difficult to install? Is there such a thing as an external video card that connects to a USB 2 port and increases the laptops performance?
 

A:What is the easiest way to get better video card performance on a laptop?

In almost all cases, the video card cannot be upgraded in a laptop. At one point a few companies were developing external video cards for laptops but I'm not sure that ever went anywhere.

Recently I started getting very poor video performance on various performance Comsysapp.pif poor causing video benchmarks and tests as well as experiencing a larger than average number of crashes while playing some games For reference my card is an EVGA Nvidia GT GTO My OS is XP I ve been troubleshooting this problem for quite some time now and I have confirmed that my video card is working perfect - I installed it on a friends computer and tested it and it worked fine I also tested my power supply and it s working just Comsysapp.pif causing poor video performance fine too So it doesn t seem to be a hardware problem unless my motherboard is somehow causing this I ve installed new drivers reverted back to old Comsysapp.pif causing poor video performance drivers I even reformatted my entire computer and installed Windows fresh to try and see if that would alleviate the problem maybe some driver was causing messups so I just decided to wipe everything Comsysapp.pif causing poor video performance I ve been able to get my video card to run fine on benchmarks tests but I noticed that I can only get it to run well if I close the process comsysapp pif in the task manager This is related to the COM stuff I believe but I m not sure how exactly that is causing my video card to perform poorly I m also not sure how to disable that process and whether or not it s essential I went into services msc and tried to disable the COM services but that didn t seem to get rid of it Any help would be appreciated nbsp

A:Need a High Performance Gaming Video Card For PCI-E Under $100

well just to let you know right now. Prob wont find a card that will run BF2 on high res with no video issues for under 100, the market isnt a charity, you pay for what you get, all within a 2 month period of course, until prices change.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102064 this might do you okay, some others might recommend a 7600 gt or something. I'm an nvidia fan myself, but for what you're requiesting, this is it.
