Mouse Delay And OpenGL Games Delay

Aug 31, 2009

Im running Windows 7 Professional x86 final on this machine:

athlon x2 5.000+

2x2gb ddr800 dual-channel memory

ati radeon hd 4650 512mb 128bits

500g sata hd

The os is updated and all the settings of the os are on default. The settings of videocard are in performance/balanced.

The problem was found in counter-strike 1.6 and Urban Terror 4.1 (its a quake3 mod).

In desktop, without gaming or something else, i see that the mouse has some kind of delay (almost nothing here).

During the gameplay i get lag and slow fps...

I disabled the "DESKTOP COMPOSITION" and the problem was not solved but its better with this crap disabled.

I wanna know if you can tell me if there is some config, drive issue, or something else to make it works without this option disabled.

Im thinking in some option on regedit to make desktop composition stop lagging the opengl games.

Does anybody knows how to solve it without disabling the desktop composition?

I like the face of windows 7 and don't wanna loose it for a game too old.

Keyboard And Mouse Delay At Startup?

Mar 6, 2012

When I boot and the Windows 7 desktop appears I can't use my keyboard and mouse for about 5 seconds. As a matter of fact none of my USB-connected periphals are available at that point. I have to note that it's my first system with a lightning fast SSD. Booting Windows to the desktop takes only 10 seconds. Maybe it's just too fast for everything to initialize?

Keyboard: standard USB Logitech keyboard
Mouse: Steelseries Xai USB
Motherboard: Asus P8Z68-V Pro Gen3

How Much RAM Needed To Play Skyrim

How Much RAM Required To Run Skyrim Smoothly

Sep 7, 2012

Here are my current computer specs:
Intel Pentium 4 CPU 3.60GHz
2.00 GB RAM
32-bit Operating System
AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series

I understand 2.00 GB is not a good amount for Skyrim as it continuously lags and freezes. What I need to know is how much RAM and/or other parts could I upgrade to make it run nice and smoothly, with hardly any if not no lagg at all? Also my motherboard has 4 slots for RAM, would it be possible to run 8GB ram on a 32-bit system?

Playing Skyrim And Idle, Various Errors?

Nov 14, 2011

I am by no means a computer expert so please bear with me here. I recently purchased all the necessary parts for my new computer and had it built by a friend who has done various builds for me in the past. I have been getting frequent BSODs. At first I thought it was related entirely to Skyrim, but I have also had a BSOD while burning a DVD and at idle. My system specs are as follows:

[code]...

It is a retail version of Windows and everything is brand new.I have done the following: Malware test using Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware and have found nothing.Uniblue DriverScanner is showing all drivers up to date.I ran Prime95 and had no issues (temps stayed normal)I ran FurMarks and had no issues (again normal temps)I ran MemTest and the RAM passed without issue.I used HD Tune on the SSD and there also did not appear to be any problems.I have disabled Avira AV and still have the BSOD I updated the firmware on my SSD.I updated by bios I have installed, uninstalled, and reinstalled by GFX drivers.Nothing appears to be working and I would really like to get this issue resolved as soon as possible.Fortunately, since I just bought the parts at a local computer store I can return them for a direct swap if one of the parts is the issue. I have attached the memory dumps.

Skyrim Stutters (Freezes Then Resumes) Every 5 Seconds

May 23, 2012

I played the game for 100 + hours without problem, then this problem appears. Skyrim freezes then resumes then freezes every 5 seconds after playing for a few minutes. I tried re-installing the game, lowering the graphics to low, removing all mods. This is also not a savegame issue, it happens even in a new game. Also tried running in windowed mode, did not fix the issue. I also tried using game booster(to see if a background is causing this). I also tried running the game in my Windows XP partition, got the same problem. I do have the latest drivers and patch. One thing I have noticed is my CPU load goes from around 90% to 30% during the freezing.

BSOD After Playing Skyrim Faulty Graphics Card?

Jun 11, 2012

I was playing Skyrim last weekend, and the game froze on a black screen just as it was cutting to a kill animation. I had to restart the computer but when Windows loaded I had a BSOD. The computer booted fine up till this point.I've been looking up causes and fixes all week, and the dump files seem to suggest a 0x116 Video_TDR_error. I've attached all the requested information.I've already tried installing several different graphics drivers - the newest, the one supplied with the card, and one between. Windows and DirectX were fully up to date. I've also tried formatting the hard drive and installing Windows fresh, twice. I've had the computer back to the state it arrived in, when the drivers worked fine, and I've tried it with only the video drivers installed. Everything I try now is still resulting in the same BSOD.I can only get Windows to load in Safe Mode, or if I go into Device Manager and disable my graphics card. I am now fairly convinced the card itself is the problem, and I'm looking for confirmation before I go and get a new one fitted.The computer was new at the end of November. I had the same Windows install since then, but now I'm running a fresh install.

Wanting To Increase Dedicated Video RAM, In Order To Play Skyrim?

Aug 2, 2012

I downloaded Skyim from steam a while ago and after it had downloaded I was able to load the game up, however the lag was unbearable. It was simply running too slowly.I tried seeking help in various other places, but after looking in detail trying to see what the problem was I finally discovered that my Dedicated Video RAM was the only thing that was too low. It's a mere 64 MB and I need to try and get it to 512mb if I can.I've seen various people say that your dedicated memory can be increased, other have said that it can't be increased though. Which has left me utterly confused.Here are my System details.Manufacture: Samsung Electronics Rating (Windows Experience Index): 3.3 Processor: Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU T4400 @ 2.20GHz 2.20GHz Installed memory (RAM): 3.00 GB System type: 32-bit operating systemI'll try give any other necessary information if people let me know what they need/how to get it if the problem can be solved. If not then I guess that means I'd have to purchase a new computer?

Skyrim - Taskbar Lags And AMD Vision Control Center Freezes

Dec 6, 2011

I've noticed that I've been having a minor problem recently. Whenever I play Skyrim, after I quit, my taskbar lags and AMD VISION Engine Control Center freezes upon loading and doesn't let me click anything, so I have to kill it by right clicking on the icon. The only fix to both of these problems is restarting, which is kind of annoying. I've tried killing explorer.exe and reloading it through Task Manager, but that didn't work.

I know that this is a pretty vague explanation, but do you have any advice? I'm using a Radeon HD 6850, AMD Phenom ii x6 1065T 2.9Ghz (with TurboBoost), 8 GB 1333 RAM, nothing overclocked, and I've got the latest Catalyst/AMD/ATI video card drivers. I launch Skyrim through Steam, and I run it at almost max settings at 1920x1080. No other game I've tried has caused this. Is it possible that my problem might lie in TurboBoost, my graphics settings, or is it merely a software glitch that might get fixed later?

I've played:
Killing Floor,
Half Life 2: Episode Two
Minecraft
Team Fortress 2
Counter Strike: Source
Garry's Mod
Portal

On this computer. No really recent games, since this is new and those were the only games my other computer could support.

I've started to experience a strange problem where my laptop seems to be completely idle before starting explorer.exe (So I have a blue desktop with only the mouse pointer) this is after login as I have it set to automatically login. I have tried various things, I have looked through Autoruns and there is nothing which I can find which would be delaying startup, I have tried removing almost everything non-essential from startup however the problem does not fix. I have also tried doing a boot trace with Process Monitor to see if any process is timing out, however nothing stands out to me as delaying explorer.exe from starting.

Input Delay On Welcome Screen

For some odd reason there is a noticeable delay once my laptop wakes from sleep. It will display the "press ctrl-alt-del" welcome screen almost instantly, but it takes 10-20 seconds for it to recognize when I actually press ctrl-alt-del. I don't remember it doing this when I first installed the RC, and I don't have any credential management software running. This is on an HP 6710b.

Startup Delay After Welcome Screen

Sep 25, 2009

Windows 7 is booting normally and after I type my password in the login window the text 'welcome' shows up for 8 seconds or so. Then the screen fades to black. At this point, the only thing I see is the mouse pointer (which I can move). Pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del doesn't work (does not respond). This black screen lasts for about 40 seconds, then Windows finally progresses to the desktop. Before this problem occurred, Windows faded directly into the desktop after the 'welcome' text. Does anyone know how to solve this?

A while ago, I thought I had the solution to the 40 seconds delay by disabling the Workstation Service. But now I notice some things do not work anymore like filesharing via Hamachi or via standard Windows Networks, or joining a Domain. How can I fix the 40 seconds delay without disabling the workstation service?

Thrashing External HDD After Delay?

May 19, 2011

I'm running Windows 7 64-bit on a new Asus laptop. I have multiple external USB 2.0 HDDs connected to this laptop via a powered USB hub, one a 2TB Fantom Greendrive and a second a 1TB archive drive. The 2TB drive is my multimedia drive, and contains most of my MP3 files, graphics files and other non-application and backup stuff. I use the 1TB drive as a secondary backup. Both are left connected to the hub at all times. This PC is hooked to a keyboard/monitor which is shared with a second computer (a Macbook) via a KVM switch.

What's happening is that after about 28 minutes of inactivity, the Fantom HDD begins to rapidly click as something begins thrashing the drive. This usually happens while I'm working on the Macbook, so the Asus is receiving no input form my keyboard/mouse (the KVM switch has switched to the Macbook). If I click back to the Asus laptop via KVM switch, the clicking immediately stops.

I've checked the system monitor and I don't see any corresponding spikes in memory usage for the time immediately preceding the switch back to the Asus laptop via the KVM switch, nor has any of my multiple antivirus or malware scans (AVG, Avira and MalwareByte's Anti-Malware) detected any infection. I also checked to make sure that the thrashing is not the result of any automated antivirus scans (all are set to on-demand scanning) or automated backups (disabled - I back all files up manually).

Last, thinking this might be caused by something lurking in my screensaver, I disabled all screensavers and the behavior continued. It seems to happen a few minutes after the when the "Turn Off Display" from power management is invoked - I have power management set to turn off my display at 20 minutes and the thrashing seems to begin about 8 minutes after that (??). This seems like something that would be the hallmark of malware ("start activities only when the monitor is switched off so the user can't see what's happening"), but all my scans come up clean.

I'm not so much worried that some piece of malware is scanning me (although I still think that's possible), as I don't hear the main C: drive being thrashed, nor is the other 1TB drive being thrashed - I'm more concerned about the drive getting trashed/worn out over time due to all the activity.

There is a good strait 2min delay between time open a program and time it opens, could this be avast?

I have 4 gigs ram labtop with duel core 1.3mhz 500 gig HD lots people either say its mother board or the HD.

I say I don't mind but it does bother me, i expect it to be faster... is avast slowing everything down? I have played around with the options on windows to speed it up and I can increase speed a bit but to me as long im not gaming (this is a cheaper labtop) I expect it to be quick...

I open a file and its a delay at least 30 secs. programs 1 -2min if it opens at all. I really want a test to explain issue. I be kinda mad if send it back to toshiba and wait a month to be told its not mother board or they don't cover it or blame it on me.... so I rather fix my self if I can.

Delay When Opening Programs On Windows 7?

May 1, 2011

All of a sudden today, whenever I open up any program/application (firefox, control panel, documents) the actual window comes up pretty slowly. I don't know if it's a huge problem but it's pretty annoying. Before, if I were to open firefox, the client would open up automatically but now it slowly opens and kind of fades into the screen. I don't think my computer got slower all of a sudden, because it is working fine and it was perfect just yesterday. The same problem happens when I close a window, it slowly fades away instead of just instantly closing.

I can ping the computer with the share during that time. I've tried using the netbios name and the IP. Network is simple, all Gb.

Caps Lock Delay In Windows 7?

This is frustrating because I usually hit Caps Lock and type immediately, and then find about 6 letters have not been accepted. The speed of the system (laptop) is otherwise OK. Is there a way to reduce the time the alert shows, or turn it off altogether?

Timeout Delay At Desktop On Startup?

Aug 1, 2010

My Canon MF3240 laser printer is causing a timeout delay in Windows 7, when completing the loading of the desktop when booting (cold or warm). Long Explanation: When starting the computer, Windows will load normally to the desktop with near complete functionality. But there is a delay of 60 seconds while something tries to initialize or load. During this delay the blue spinning circle ("Working") can be seen over the Network icon in the systray, and over the Currency & Weather gadgets, and in Windows Explorer at the major headings.While the "Working" icon is showing I can open the browser and I have internet access. But I can't open task manager or use Windows Explorer until "Working" is done. The condition was first noticed after I uninstalled my old Canon MP780 printer and replaced it with an Epson Artisan 810. The Canon MF3240 was already installed before this change. I always suspected the Epson printer had corrupted something. This weekend I finally got around to removing all the printers, cleaning up, and reinstalling the printers. I reinstalled the Epson first (using correct W7x64 drivers) and all was good. Windows boots right up onto the desktop and everything is connected - no delays. Then I reinstalled the MF3240. Bang - right off - the delay condition.Now, if I unplug the USB cable for the MF3240 and boot (cold or warm) the delay goes away. What do you think is going on here? More Info: The original installation of the MF3240 was done when I first installed Windows 7. I was new to Windows 7 and there was some thrashing about to get the printer set up, I recall. I finally got it working by manually installing the drivers. These were XP-2000 drivers, best I can tell.

The driver I just installed for the MF3240 is MF3200_MFDrivers_Win_x64_us_EN_7 . I got these drivers from the Canon website for my printer, but I can't remember exactly when, but it was a while ago. I never installed these drivers before. Today, on that website, the only Windows 7 driver available is MF3200_MFDrivers_Win_x32_us_EN_7.exe ". Actually, that is the only driver for all Windows OS's. Also, the downloads above do not contain an installer package, only the .inf's and .cab's. If I knew then what I know now, I would plug in the printer, Windows would not find a driver, I will browse to the folder with the drivers, and the x64 drivers are installed. On the reinstall Windows found drivers and installed them automatically when I plugged the printer in. I had to go to the printer's properties and update the drivers to the x64 version. However, the delay condition happens in either version of the driver that I had installed.
