One month ago I had to replace motherboard, display and graphics card on my Dell XPS M1730.
(Only the graphic card was probably gone. Anyway.)
Videocard is : 9000M GTX NVIDIA GeForce.
Now I open a patch for a simple video installation and it goes VERY slow, even with ridicolous resolution. The patch is very simple and plays back a video and there are some graphics. Simple. Worked well in June.
Now I do the WEI windows tests and I got excllent 7 in video but 3 or 4 in Processor and RAM tests.
No Idea what to do.
Processor is DUO T9300 2.50 GHZ
Anyone experienced something similar? Or have any suggestion?
Drivers were reinstalled and they seem to be up to date.
I still have 24 hours, then I leave for one week and when back will have only 3 hours to set up everything :) PANIC
GPU / Graphics card detected: NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GTX Your graphics card is not listed in the settings database.
''DXVA can still be enabled but will fall back to CPU decode if DXVA is unsupported.
I can enable this DXVA on h.264/x264 and/or on VC1.
just two thoughts, usually you don’t need any codec packs for VLC and second, have you checked that optimus is behaving as it shoudld, check that you have the latest driver from nvidia and use the new optimus tool.
well, i have no hands-on experience with optimus as i just try to avoid getting machines with that technology, but that post with the tools is from mid 2010, so it might aswell be that those optimus tools linked there are too old to recognize your current drivers. (just a guess ;))
@circuitb: allright. was just wondering since a guy in that utilities thread states on the first page that those utils have been integrated into the driver package so i thought it might be counterproductive to install those three year old binaries linked there.
I tried to chenge the settings for vvvv in the nvidia cntrol panel but I don’t have a gloval “best performance” choice.
So i did some tweaking and it got a slightly better performance, i think (anyway vvvv crashed).
I really don’t understand how it’s possible as before changing the hardware everything worked great,
I’l run my intallation on a friend’s computer but I relly need this computer to get back on track. I’ll post more when I have news, does somebody think that a clean install of WIN7 would help?
