Geforce expierence wont optimize my games

Q: Geforce expierence wont optimize my games

I just upgraded from a msi gtx 1080 to a msi gtx 1080ti i downloaded new nvidia driver and it wont let me optimize any of my games... They have a grey exclamation point and when i hit optimize it says optimization finished but dosent do anything... Anyone have any ideas?..... Also i installed a new psu went from a crappy azza 800w80+ to a evga 850w 80+ bronze and i thought maybe it was just the driver so i decided to download one of the older drivers from nvidia and once i did my psu usage went from its normal 6% to over 75000% usage this happened as soon as i was done installing driver so id restart goes back to normal is it a glitch or is something messed up with the psu?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I am new to windows 8 (now 8.1), and more importantly SSDs. In Optimize Drives my System Reserved is listed as Never run and Needs optimization, but it will not Optimize manually or from the Scheduler. When clicking Optimize for a split second you can
see it says running under Last run but goes back to Never run and same with Needs optimization it shows trim for second then back to Need optimization. Is this a problem if so how do I fix it?

A:Optimize Drives System Reserved (SSD) Needs optimization. Clicking Optimize immediately stops and doesn't Optimize is this a problem?

It looks like other people are having the same issue and the fix for that is to exclude the SSD from the default scheduled maintenance and set up a new event in Task Scheduler that will just retrim the drive once per week.

It sounds like your card is overheating.

Check your video card fan. Ensure that none of its fins have been broken, or that the fan has stopped entirely. Move any wires or peices of hardware that may get in the way of its airflow. Use some compressed air to dust off the fan and see if the card stops freezing.

Video Card : Nvidia 8800 GS
2 GB RAM
MSI Motherboard

has been working like this perfectly for 2 years now. About a month ago, I would try to play a game that I had been playing for 5 months already, but tit would just crash on the loading screen.

I ran DXDiag and tried Direct3D.At first, it would freeze at Direct8 test. Then it would freeze at the Direct9 test.

So later on this problem would persist with avi's, youtube videos, but not MPEGs (really didn't help my current video editing problem, but that's another story).

Today, I had the time to try to find out the problem. I changed the hardware acceleration all the way down and uncechked the little box under it. I would get an Nvidia message saying that I need to have it at full. After 2 restarts, I just disabled the Video Card,

This made the computer switch to use the Integrated Graphics. I then downloaded the drivers for my graphics card, installed, and restarted. I couldn't find out where to switch back to the Video Card instead of the integrated graphics! So all I did was disable the Integrated graphics from the desktop, restarted, and got no video, but I woul;d get audio.

do your games have a safe mode option or a way to set the video settings without causing said lockup?
if so, start disabling features such as lightmapping, shadows, skidmarks. you will have to experiment a bit but the idea is to find the offending setting by process of elimination.

Ok...here's my story,

I finally got around to buying/installing a "good" video card into my computer. I have a custom made X-tech Amd Duron 1200 computer(which by the way is only a 800 mhz computer being overclocked to 892) and i installed more memory into it about 2 weeks ago, it was the first step in my journey to upgrade. So yesterday i put in the Geforce 6200 into my only AGP slot. I got the latest drivers, made all my custom settings, and everything was working great so far...I finally popped in a game, Halo for the PC. The intalling went smoothly and the companies logos and intros went smoothly as well. Then when it got to the game menu, it got VERY weird. Red splashes were flying everywhere and it was just going crazy. I finally had to end task, then i started it up again. It just got worse, it eventually moved on to not even showing anything but a hardcore stobelight show. I thought it maybe to be the game and that's it...so i tried putting in Farcry. Almost the same thing happened except at the beginning(after all the logos and recognitions went by) it just stuck to one screen. I could tell the game was still working and going because of the sound, but i just couldn't SEE ANYTHING. I was getting pretty malicious. I then installed Sims 2...and still...the same damn thing.

Hi everyone,

I recently purchased a new Geforce 6600GT AGP 8X graphics card for my system, but have found in some games, such as Pro Evo and IGI 2, I see really weird graphics problems, with lines and planes (not flying ones lol ) appearing across the screen as if you can see part of how the graphics system in the game was constructed. also the objects which should be solid have gaps and can be seen through. Does anyone know what I can do? I've upgraded the drivers and so on but am now stuck.

A:Geforce 6600 GT Games graphics problems

Hello and welcome to techspot.

What drivers are you currently using? You should be using version 93.71 from www.nvidia.com

If you are using that version and still having troubles, next try updating your motherboard's chipset drivers. If you system is a "brand name" like dell or emachine you'll need to go to the maker's site and check for updates there. If not, you need to go to your motherboard maker's website and download the latest chipset drivers from there.

If this is not a driver issue, the next thing I'd look at is your PSU. How many watts is it, and how many amps on the +12v rail? You can find this info on the sticker attached to your PSU (inside the case). Also, I'd check if the voltage is steady. Download and run THIS and tell us how many volts it is reporting for your +3.3v, +5v and +12v rails.

Another possibility is that you don't have the graphics card's power connector connected. Do you have a cable going from your PSU directly to your card?

Another possibility is that you didn't completely remove the drivers that you were using for your OLD graphics card. Did you remove the old drivers before you installed the new?

Another possibility is that your card is overheating. Open up your case and aim a house fan on the card and try gaming again. Does this lessen the problem?

Another possibility is that your card is faulty. Can you try that card in someone else's system as a test?

Hey everyone

So I have a Geforce 650 TI Boost since October or so. First I used it until March this year, I always got a BSOD with the error code 116 (driver issue) in nearly every game I play (from Sims3, SimCity, TERA, ESO) except GW2 (strange, but I don't know why).

It was so frustrating that I decided (around March) to switch back to my old Radeon HD 4870, because I tried everything I found (windows update to the last possible, tried every driver version I could find, one of them more than one year old, installed them in safe mode and stuff, nothing worked.)

Due to the fact, that I got myself a Wacom Cintiq Graphic Tablet, and my Radeon is so old, that it doesn't have a HDMI port, I choose to give my Geforce a new try, maybe two months of driver development could help me.

Everything worked fine for about... two weeks (changed the card around 18th june) I could play everything (from the games mentioned to some new) but, since yesterday no game lasts long, and again, it's the 116 bluescreen.

I got the newest driver (from 26th may, according to the download page) I also updated my windows today, I can't play anything, from really simple games like Plague Inc. no Sims, none of my RPGs (including Skyrim and Mount and Blade).

I don't want to spend another 150 to 250 Bucks on new Hardware (wether it's a other Graphics Card or another mainboard). I want this to work, because I was so happy when it first run two weeks without problems.

Hi guys,

I am having problems with computer freezing when playing games. I am guessing it's the graphics card Nvidia GeForce GT 220. Specs are:

Motherboard: Gigabyte EP43T-UD3L
CPU: Intel Dual Core E6500
RAM: 4GB DDR3
Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GT 220
System: Windows 7, 64 bit

So the freezing happened 3 times so far after playing game for like 30 mins. It's not the blue screen but just when it freezes the speakers just like play that zzzzzzz sound and the monitor turns off. I guess because it does not receive any signal from the graphics card. Also at that point I can just turn it off by holding the power button. Then immediately if I turn it on it powers on until that motherboard screen and then just restarts and so on and on, so I have to turn it off and wait a couple of minutes and then turn it on. Then it's all normal.
Anyone can help?
Thanks

A:Computer freeze in games Nvidia GeForce GT 220

That sounds like overheating.

Can you check to see if the fan is working on the 220 card?

Also try running the system with the side(s) of the case removed to see if that improves things.

That would also be a good time to look and see how much dust has accumulated inside.

I recently got two games installed on my comp. City of Heroes and Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines. I couldn't play CoH at first, so I had to update the driver, after which, the game worked fine. Thats when problems started for the VTM:B game!! The graphics on the characters looked horrible! I tried rolling back to the previous driver, and VTM:B looked great, but then I again wasn't able to play CoH.

When the 5.6.7.3 driver is installed, I get an error when trying to launch CoH that says

"you card or driver doesn't support GL_EXT_compiled_vertex_array"

and

"you card or driver doesn't support GL_ARB_multitexture"

and

"you card or driver doesn't support GL_ARB_texture_compression"

The driver that I updated to was 6.6.9.3 I believe. When that driver is installed, CoH works fine, but it left me with very poor graphics on VTM:B. Rolling back to the previous driver brought the graphics back up in great detail, but leaves me unable to launch CoH.

The driver I have to roll back to in order to play VTM:B is 5.6.7.3.

I seriously don't think I should have to update and rollback between drivers to play two seperate games on my comp, but I honestly don't know what to do to solve this problem.

I have had this problem for quite some time. I have a Lenovo y410p with a Nvidia GeForce GT 750M and it is recently updated. All my drivers have been updated also.

When I play CS:GO, this crash happens very often. I will be playing the game, it can even be 1v1 on a private server, and the visuals will stop and it will repeat the last noise played (ex: gunshot). No error message pops up but after a while and a couple alt-tabs, it says that csgo.exe has stopped responding so I stop it. I recorded the temperature of the crash with a program and it was only at 72 degrees Fahrenheit and I also recently cleaned out my fan so I don't think overheating is the problem.

Another game this happens with is Garry's Mod. I will be playing and then it will randomly crash. I will get an error message stating that the graphics card has crashed and I will be able to hear noise and move around in game, but I somehow become invincible (at least on a private server) and the screen becomes frozen.

This crash also occurs when I play Civilization V. After playing for a while, I will start to get some graphics bugs like some textures glitching in and out and eventually it crashes.

From what I can tell from googling this problem, it's not the DX11 software on your computer that's the problem, it's the DirectX hardware support on the GPU that is lacking...

The is a common response to people reporting this problem...

Typically caused by not having the minimum directx support in the GPU. For NVIDIA GPU's. DirectX10.0 support is required.

I know the card advertises that it does have full DX11 support.

The 520 GT is a very low end card. With all due respect, if you want to play current games I'd suggest upgrading to a more capable card, perhaps a 560 for under $200

My graphic card could run every game until a month ago without any problems. But a moth ago it started to overheat on games like AC III and the picture was very laggy and the fan was making very loud noises, I`m not really a expert on computers so I`m here for a opinion on what should I do. Here is to understand the problem some pictures of my temperatures:

The first one is while playing Fifa 13, and I even adjusted my visual settings for best performance.
The second one is on my normal settings when I wasn`t doing anything.
Thanks to anyone who would like to give me some advice on what to do

Hello I have have installed a new Geforce Gtx 660 Ti and now when i open CC or World of Warcraft I get really bad feedback noise but if I downsize it the sound goes away if I open Itunes I can faintly hear it but not as bad as the games (wow is the worst) . it does not matter if the sound is on or off for the games I still hear the feedback buzzing noise? Geforce techs are clueless. 38 days past purchase so i guess i am stuck with this video card. I can use my old video card and it is fine NO noise at all

thanks for any help

Please help me.

When I play games, most of the time this will happen:

Playing along and then black screen for 2-3 sek. then back to the game. Then when I exit the game there is a little yello triangle with "!" in it, next to the clock (I cant press it or remove befor i reboot)
Sometimes the games freezes with a black screen and the only thing to do is Ctrl+Alt+Delete and shut it down.

Any body???

Here are my specs:

this is a very common video card error. you can find some solutions that might apply to ur situation here.

www.nvlddmkm.com

i fixed mine by taking my 8800gt apart, clean out the old thermal paste, and re-apply with new thermal paste. they put too much thermal paste in the first place. however this might not be the solution in your case.

friends,I have decided to buy a geforce fx5200 ,128mb video card only to play my favourite 6 games,these are half life 2,prince of percia-sand of times,far cry,moha-pacific assault,battlefield two and constantine.my system config is:intel p4 2.4 ghz,256mb ddr ram. please tell me how this 5200 card will perform with all these games at various settings.
 

A:are these 6 games properly playable with a geforce fx5200 card?

Want the straight up truth?

That 5200 card is the bottom of the bottom for cards that are "acceptable" gaming cards. I'd highly recommend saving your cash until you can get something that will be able to give you some good frame rates without having to turn all the settings on low.

i have a geforce galaxy gts 250 512mb and in linux/xp 32bit it loads games fine, but in win7 64bit (havent tried 32bit win7)my whole computer just turns black when i try to play. no sound, no response from the normal ctl alt dlt, not even a numlock response. takes a manual restart to get going again. i have tried the drivers that came with the cd, ones that galaxy officially supports, and the nvidia official drivers. Could it be this card isnt supported very well in 64bit win7 yet? Or could I possibly need a new psu? Thanks to anyone with ideas...

I am avrage user, and don't know much of pc.
I have trouble with my new pc games such is: James Bond Nightfire, Unreal Tournement 2003, C&C Generals. All the new games who need the DX 8.1. Exepct the ("Soldier of Fortune 2 ") They will start and then they will freeze out or reset my pc. Before I upgraded my PC, game James Bond Nightfire worked with my old pc even UT 2003 worked but with very bad graphic.

My old PC was:
OS: WIN98SE
MB: VIA Accorp
CPU: Celleron 633 Mhz
RAM: 128 SDRAM
VGA: ATI RAGE FURY 32 MB RAM (TV OUT)
Monitor 15" : Hansol Mazellan 501 P

My PC is :
OS: XP Professional

I update the VGA (www.nvidia.com), also DX9 I have, still is the same problem.

Thanks all you ppl for advices, I found and solve my problem, it was old MB BIOS, I take my pc to the service and serviceman said that was old MB BIOS,and he can not suport fast cpu like mine, (cause the day when MB was manufactured didn't exist that kind oof fast cpu's). SO he updated and now works fine.
 

A:Inno 3D GeForce 4 MX440/MX 440 SE 64 MB DDRAM (TV OUT) Games Freeze!!!

A friend of mine had exactly the same problem last week- Medal of Honor would start and freeze after a while, sometime the pc would reboot during a game, Mafia froze, IL-2 Sturmovik. After testing everything (he's got a AMD 2200 XP, 512 DDR Ram, ATI 8500 LE 128) we found the problem to be the power supply. If your machine is fine using any other application aside from games (as his was) then the video card is needing more power then the system can supply. Buy a more powerful power supply, swap them out, test your games and if the problem recurrs you can always take the new power supply back. Unfortunately, you can't go cheap on power supplies, and most that come with the case are underpowered! Let me know if this is the problem.

According to my Windows Experience Evaluation, my GeForce 6200 is decent for "gaming graphics" (got a 3.2), but not so much for "graphics", which got me a 2.8. Because of this, games run kinda well, but unless I turn off all the visual effects of Aero my PC runs soo slow (it can't be CPU, I have an Intel Pentium of 3Ghz, and I recently found out it's dual core; I only have 1GB of RAM, but I have many pendrives plugged for ReadyBoost. It has to be the graphics card). I went to check the details of the Experience Evaluation thing, and here's what it says about my card:

Monitor adapter type: NVIDIA GeForce 6200
Total graphics memory avaliable: 767 MB
Graphics dedicated memory: 512 MB
System dedicated memory: 0 MB
Shared system memory: 255 MB
Display adapter driver version: 8.17.11.9562
Primary monitor resolution: 1440x900
DirectX version: DirectX 9.0 or subsequent
(this was google translated from Spanish, so it not be exactly the same as the English Experience Evaluation)

Is there anything I can do to make Aero on Win7 run more smoothly?

I've had a 6800 Ultra for about a year now. When I first got it, I had problems with Doom 3 but was told to OC the 2D clock speed to match the 3d clock speed.

But lately I've been having problems with games. I'm not sure exactly at what point it started happening, but now, any game I play, I ALWAYS get some sort of graphical glitches, little flashy artifacts that show up on any resolution at any settings and invariably crashes my computer to the BSOD that says there's an error with the n4disp file. The ONLY way I can get a game to not crash is to install an nvidia driver OLDER than about 69.xx. ALL newer drivers cause this graphics issue. I've reformatted, OCed my CPU, graphics card, not OCed them, OCed one but not the other, tried switching power supplies, everything. I'm 99% convinced it's a driver issue, as I can solve it by going back to an older one. Unfortunately, newer games like Battlefield 2 require newer drivers.

Anyone have ANY suggestions??

3 days ago i started having a black screen problem while playing games that normally would run on my PC ( for example League of Legends and Skyrim , the latter on low details ).

The problem is as follows : In League of Legends which i've been running on High details for 6 months now i started getting a black screen for about 2-4 seconds , afterwhich the game resumed. At least this is what happened for a while, but it started increasing in frequency and i had numerous Crashes (bugsplat errors) with a message saying that my video drivers have stopped working. This culminated with me also getting a Green Screen during the game that resulted in me restarting my pc ( basically the screen went green and i couldn't do anything else except manually restart)

The drivers are up to date so i have nothing to upgrade. I checked my video card thinking it might overheat and it runs at ~60C.

I cleaned the dust off my PC , reinstalled Windows and increased video card fan speed a bit.

Now i have almost the same problem, i still get the Black screen error that lasts 2-4 seconds and occasionally i get the Green Screen aswell forcing me to restart.

I decreased my League of Legends graphic details from High to Very Low, decreased FPS rates from 60 to 30 and now it runs without problems, but here's the catch: everything that worked smoothly before such as Skyrim and other high demanding games ( from a video card PoV) are now unplayable, i can only run older games like for example...

I recently purchased an Nvidia geforce fx 5600 128 mb graphics card. I'm running an amd sempron 2 ghz processor with 960 megs of ram. The computer I installed this card on has a geforce 4 mx integrated graphics card. The problem is after installing the card, I fired up a couple different games, first game i fired up was fable. Game started normal worked fine, then like 30 seconds into the game it freezes for 1-2 seconds then the screen becomes all pixelled and distorted like. The game still runs, it doesn't crash and it also plays fine, no freezing etc. It did this with all the games i tried it with, (deus ex, full spectrum warrior, brothers in arm earned in blood, fable, vampire the masquerade, and morrowind.) After the pixelation begans, u exit the game and reenter even after reboot and pixelazation is always there. It doesn't effect movies or anything else just actual game play. I've tried many different things, updating drivers etc. I made sure my geforce 4 mx driver was uninstalled properly first and then installed my geforce fx 5600 properly. Still no luck, I also tried going back, reloading geforce mx drivers then uninstalling them, then disabling the vga device, then installing new card and it still gives me the pixels. Please help, I've been waiting forever to buy a card and i probably won't be able to afford one for awhile =(. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I have an Nvidia GeForce 4 MX440. Everytime that I start windows XP this device wont start and it brings up a standard yellow triangle and says that the device will not start.

This is also the second graphics card that iv tried and they are both the same. And the motherboard has been replaced with no effect.

Iv tried to uninstall and reinstall the driver with no change and Iv also tried the latest Nvidia drivers, guru 3d drivers and the windows update drivers with no effect. Iv even used an Nvidia removal tool and then reinstalled it with no luck.

The odd thing is that to get any of the drivers to work I have to disable the driver, then enable. Then I close device manager and open display properties and change the resolution from 640x480 to 1024x768 (the screen is already at 1024x768 even though it says 640x480). It then goes blank for about a minute, the hard drive and cpu go mad and then everythings fine untill i start up again.

If anyone has any suggestions for me they would be appreciated. Im no expert but iv tried the basics and nothing works

Thanks
