Windows 7 Aero Peak Too Slow! Help!

Q: Windows 7 Aero Peak Too Slow! Help!

hi

I have had the Windows 7 32-bit RTM for just over a day and find the Aero Peak too slow to display the thumbnail images.

My computer is quick, with 2.2 Core 2 Duo, 3GB RAM, Nvidia Geforce 8600m 256MB DDR3, so clearly my laptop isn't the problem. It takes about 1 second to display the thumbnails, I think that's way too slow.

1. How can I make it display thumbnails quicker? Which speed do you recommend?

2. Will changing the speed increase memory usage of Windows processes?

Thanks,

Mani

A:whats special about aero peak!!!

With multiple apps open, just like you've done but, you need to hover the mouse over each thumbnail to enable the ture aero peek. A good example is to have several internet explorer tabs open and hover the mouse over each of them.

Hi!

I believe this is a performance issue. I just moved to Windows 7 from Vista. Occassionally, the Office 2007 applications will not show a preview using Aero Peak. (This happened in Vista but of course without Aero Peek).

The issue seems intermittent and doesn't affect all open Office applications -- just usually Excel or Outlook. Here's a picture of what I mean. (Note: This is an image I found online that I'm pasting here to save me the trouble of a screen shot)

I am currently with Virgin Broadband in the UK which supply up to 50Mbps. During non-peak I get 50 Mbps through the ethernet and about 20Mbps on my laptop through a wireless connection to my router which is fine...

The problem is that during peak times, I get a speed of less than 7/8Mbps through my wireless connection which I feel is unfair considering I am paying for up to 50Mbps. (A connection via ethernet only drops by 4-5 Mbps to 45Mbps).

Should this be happening? I don't understand how the increase in demand during peak times should affect my ethernet and wireless connection differently. If anyone has a solution I would be very grateful.
 

A:Wireless broadband v slow during peak hours; ethernet unaffected

Assuming that you run an encrypted wireless connection and changed the login and password for your router, just check how many wireless networks you can see in your connection manager during the peak hours vs normal hours. You may be just suffering from interference from the neighboring networks. In non-peak hours all of those routers around you are just broadcasting their network names, thus taking little bandwidth. In peak hour the information traffic between the routers and computers connected to them picks up and creates interference.

If you see a lot of networks around, get some free software, such as Net Stumbler, that would allow you to see what channels those networks operate on and select an unoccupied (or less occupied) channel in your router.

well this is weird....sometimes when i start up my pc the windows seven aero effects are real slow. they are smooth and not stuttering but just mega slow. when logging in the fade out and fade in takes like 5 seconds.

when i reboot, it is fixed...its random when i boot my pc. sometimes i need to restart because this weird thing happens and another time it doesnt.

You could try a sfc/scannow to see if any system files are corrupted.

How long has this been going on? Have you tried a system restore to a point before it started happening? Have you ran any malware/Virus scans?

Hello, Thomas

Try to upgrade your video drivers from the manufacturer site of the card.

You can try this also: (Open CMD.exe as Administrator) and type (net stop uxsms) wait for it the aero will be disabled now, than type (net start uxsms) see if it helps or not.

hi,

I have changed the Aero Peek speed from 400ms to 40ms, which made it quicker. But I have a problem, although hovering the mouse over active task bar icons to reveal thumbnails is quicker, the window of the program is slow to appear on the screen, if you know what I mean.

For example, if I had Firefox running(focused) and notepad open in the taskbar. If I hover over the notepad, a thumbnail will appear. But then about 1 second later the notepad windows will appear on the screen. I want this notepad window to appear quicker. How do I do this?

P.S. I am not talking about the 'show desktop' button on the bottom right of screen!

Thanks,

Blessed.

Hi

I just turned on my computer today and for some reason I cannot scroll normally, the screen literally repaints itself each time I do something, and I cannot use the Windows Aero interface anymore. Also, whenever I start the computer, it goes to the least possible resolution and I have to manually set it back to my preferred resolution. I have tried to change it back to Aero in Appearance Settings but the only Windows Vista option is the Basic. I am currently running Vista Home Premium.

I tried multiple restarts as well as a system restore, but they didn't help.
I have also done a virus scan with no problems, though I think this is just an OS issue perhaps with the video card? Although it is the same video card that came with the laptop when I bought it a couple of years ago (nvidia geforce 9100M G)

This occurs in all applications and has been happening for about 2 hours now.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Hi all,

For the past few days, if not a week now, I've noticed that when I switch to Basic theme for RAM intesive programs like Adobe After Effects, Windows is quite slow, almost running as though my laptop is 1GB not 2GB RAM.
Though when I switch to Aero theme, Windows is only slightly slower with Adobe After Effects running.

My laptop is Compaq Presario CQ56, 2GB shared graphics and I can't explain why the Basic theme is running slow whereas Aero is responding faster, so much so, programs tend to stop responding more frequently on Basic.

I have run MSE, MBAM and SAS (MSE realtime, others are standalone mode) and found no viruses and I update them all either daily or every two days.

I only have Realtek Audio and MSE on Startup so I can't figure out why this happening!

Thanks in advance for any insight as to what's happened/happening

A:Windows 7 Home Premium basic theme is slow but aero theme is fast?

How much dedicated video memory does the laptop have?
It's conceivably possible that you are actually dumping more onto the system reserved ram by turning it off If the configuration is sharing ram with your video card anyway.

Hi,

I've been using Windows 7 ultimate x64 since release day and it has always ran great. However, every now and then when i boot into windows the slow motion aero effect keeps being activated automatically, but when i restart, aero goes back to normal.

It has never bothered me since it doesn't happen all the time. I was just wondering if this is a bug or can something interfere and cause it to be enabled?

I am using an ati 5850 graphics card with the 10.11 drivers.

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

Same has happened to me. I've never tried to enable the slow motion effect, and before figuring out it was an aero feature, I thought there was something wrong with my computer.
It happened about a week ago for the first time, and just this morning for the 2nd, however after rebooting everything was back to normal.

And thus I'd like to know why this happens, just like the topic starter.

My laptop has nvidia nvs 4200m and hd3000. I got both of them with the latest drivers. Problem is, sometimes the aero animation became slow motion and if I try to play games, the games are in slow motion too. Untried to uninstall the hd3000 driver, it stops the slow motion, but aero and gameplay starts to lag. I was wondering is this only a driver conflict? Or something else?

Hey everyone, a few weeks ago my laptop's graphics stopped working correctly.
Something that was really bothering me was that Aero dissapeared. A simple reboot didn't work. I'm using a Dell and I have an option on my laptop to do a factory reset (this includes the laptop returns to the state the first time you booted it), I took a back up, did the reset, but the problem persisted.

I checked my WEI, normally my lowest score is 5,1 for memory. But now my scores for Graphics and Gaming Graphics are both 1,0.
My graphics card is an NVIDIA GeForce 8800M GTX.
I have downloaded the latest drivers from NVIDIA multiple times and done quite some research on the internet, but nothing I find really resembles my problem.

I had a period that the scores went back to normal and Aero returned, but after a Windows Update those went away again.
This is really starting to bother me now because my laptop is getting very slow of this and I can't watch anything on full screen properly anymore.

If someone can, please help me! Feel free to ask for any more information.

Hello, first sorry for any typo, English isn't my first language.

Aero randomly get realy slow here that i can't watch any videos, the video starts to drop frames, and the interface becomes very slow overall. It is like trying to run it on a ancient GeForce FX5200 or something like that.

After few minutes everything back to normal for some time till it slow down again, with no apparent reason. The problem isn't in the processor since it don't go over 10% of usage during video play, I am not using avivo here, or other uses.

The only way i found so far is to disable and enable aero in the personalize menu. This bring back the speed to normal.

I am runing a dual monitor setup, one in the HD 4870 (primary) and the other on the onbord HD 3300 video.

Tried the catalyst 9.10 and 9.9 video drives and the problem persist.
Any idea?

For those of you have have the aero glass interface on your computer, it is possible to hold down the shift key while closing, opening, and minimizing a windows to see the animation in slow motion. If you would like to test this out, just follow the steps below:

Open up Regedit.Navigate thru HKEY_CURRENT_USER, Software, Microsoft and Windows.Create a new KEY called DWM if it is not aleady there.Create a new DWORD called AnimationsShiftKey inside the DWM folder.Set the new DWORD that you just created to a value of 1.Run net stop uxsms at administrative rights command prompt followed by net start uxsms to restart the DWM engine.
Once you have restarted the DWM engine, just hold down the shift key to see any of the window animations in slow motion.

If you want to disable Aero:
Right Click on your Desktop and select ” Personalize ” click the Window Color Tab.
Uncheck the Box saying ” Enable Transparency ” and then click on ” Open classic appearance properties for more color options”.
Then a window will open up. Apply a Standard or Basic theme from it. The Standard Windows 7 theme is more preferred.
Personally I don't have any problems with Aero.

I rebooted my computer recently and when it started up, the Windows Classic theme was enabled, and all options to enable Aero had disappeared.

In addition, everything in Windows Explorer is incredibly slow, most notably opening folders on the start menu (it freezes explorer.exe for about 45 seconds then closes the start menu; when i try again it works for that folder only. Everything else freezes and repeats the process.) I also noticed that none of the services show up in the Service management window.

Any idea what this might be? The only thing I installed recently was Visual Studio 2005, with all updates and the service pack. Oh, and I tried System Restore.

I just got this computer a month ago and I finally customized it with all of my programs and settings. I really don't want to have to fully restore it.

A:Aero glass windows 8.1:DWM is incompatible with aero glass

The glass theme from Aero was removed in Windows 8 to reduce the amount of memory consumption used by the GUI to make Win 8 more suitable to lower end tablets. What you're trying to do is add it back via a series of unofficial and unsupported hacks. Hacks that rely on functions Microsoft doesn't guarantee will remain unchanged like they do the core Windows API. Which means you're completely on your own here. If things don't work properly immediately, odds are they never will and your best bet is to simply remove the hack.

Ok so I built myself a new PC and everything was running fine. Then I decided to change the graphics card from an ASUS Radeon HD 6770 to an ASUS Radeon HD6850 1GB.

Upon restart and every restart since, the Aero effects do not work. At first I just figured I hadnt got the right drivers. Games were working fine so I left it alone. Now I've updated all the drivers to the latest ones from the ATI website, 12.4, but the Aero effects still do not work.

If anyone has any ideas, or has experienced this problem, please can you provide some help. Thanks.

The Word 2002 edit/find dialog box flyout becomes abnormally slow if Aero features (ie "desktop composition") are enabled. It takes about 1.5 sec for the dialog box to open and move across the screen. Other dialog boxes are normally fast. The edit/find dialog in Excel 2002 is also fast.

Clearing the checkbox "desktop composition" in control panel | system | advanced system settings | advanced | performance will disable desktop composition, after which the edit/find dialog runs at normal speed.

A:Aero features make Word 2002 edit/find dialog slow

Thank you very much for this tip. I just installed a copy of Office XP on my Win7 laptop and was annoyed by the very slow flyout of the Find dialog window. Your fix took care of the problem!

Hi all. This is my first post since upgrading to Windows 7.

I am currently looking a way to enable Aero in my machine. (as note, currently I am missing the Aero Glass, Aero Peek, and Aero Flip.)

My specs:
Axioo NVS M720S Laptop
Genuine Intel Pentium Dual Core T2130 @ 1.86GHz
1024MB DDR2 Memory
SiS671 Mirage3 Graphic Card (on board)
80GB HDD
12" LCD Monitor

I did a clean install of Win7 on the machine. Because my screen is WideScreen, at first the graphics are all large and mushy. But at this point I HAVE AERO!

Then, I installed the driver for the gfx card, which was SIS UniVGA3 v.3.85. After installing and restarting, I get the normal resolution (1280x800) but NO AERO.

I thought this was driver problem, so I downloaded UniVGA5 v5.07, UniVGA5 v5.20 (which is the driver for Windows7, according to the site), and the SiS driver update from Windows Update, all of which didn't enable Aero for me.

I tried the registry hack with no result.

Here is my Windows Experience Index:
Processors: 4.4
RAM: 3.9
Graphics: 2.0
Gaming Graphics: 2.5
Primary Harddisk: 4.4

with Overall score: 2.0

I am completely stumped on this. I just don't get why the heck I get Aero WITHOUT driver, but no Aero with drivers.

After killing the process of Aero (wich had a memory leak, it was reaching 1 GB by itself and using all of one core).
I restarted the Aero process only to be greeted with something like "your performance analisis was reset" (all my windows7 performance scores were reset)
also , aero glass dissapeared from the Personalize.
I tried the technique of turning off the aero service (desktop window manager session manager ) and turned it on again, and then re-ran the performance (getting a 5.4 due of lousy old hdd, the rest are between 6.5 and 7.5 ).
but after a few restarts, the AERO glass option is still missing, how do I recover it?


my specs:

Windows 7 Ultimate
Intel Kentsfield @ 3 Ghz ( Q6600 )
GA-X48-DS4 ( Gigabyte )
4 x 2 GB ram DDR 800 ( 8gb in 4 modules )
2x Western Digital ( 160 + 500Gb )

Hi guys,

I've recently bought a new computer, and it's an issue I've had with another Windows 7 desktop that I purchased before. Unfortunately, when I fixed it originally, I don't exactly remember how because it was after hours of frustrating trial and error.
Anyways, the issue is that while all volume levels are set for peak output, the green/grey volume bar is only going up about halfway. I have been told to check all settings, check my speakers and reinstall my audio driver; however, none of them have fixed the problem. I have plugged my speakers directly into my iPod and they work fine, and I've tried different music-playing software, and the same issue persists.

If anybody has any ideas on how to fix this problem, it was be appreciated.

Hey everyone,

I have been having trouble with my network. I recently, (2 days ago), upgraded my cable high speed internet service from 2mbps down and .2 mbps up to 15 mbps down and 2 mbps up. However, even during non peak hours, pretty much all the time, the best download speed I can get is 4-5mbps. My upload speed stays where it should, at 2mbps. It is really only my download speed I am concerned about, because this happens every day all day. When I first upgraded the service, I got 12-13 mbps download speed, so something must have happened between then and now where I cant receive that anymore. My modem is a doscis 2, not 3, so I am not sure if that has anything to do with it. It is an Arris TM602G/15 model.But as I said, I have received close to the full download speeds before, but not anymore.

Any help? Thanks!

A:Not getting speeds I am paying for... Even during NON-peak

Try contacted the service provider again ? They should have technicians to be able to check it for you. Could also be a line problem, did you add anymore lines to your cable lines inside ?

How are you testing it, where ? Did you change any other settings on PC. Windows does all optimizations for you.

Try resetting the modem, unplug it for 15 seconds, then plug back in. Or unplug and reboot PC. Usually a way to reset the modem back to factory state, need to check your service providers website for your model modem to be able to access it's settings. Usually you type in an address in your browser to access it.

Alpha Peak Block DHT. This unpleasant little hormone is developed in your body when specified minerals come with your own body's own Testosterone Booster supply into contact. DHT practically chokes the life out-of them, stopping them from absorbing vitamins from your system and binds to hair roots. Of taking a highquality DHT blocking product the significance shouldn't be underestimated as DHT may be the key cause of female-pattern baldness. Actually, if you follow only 1 of the three steps, get this to the stage you follow!

Hi,

Does anyone know how to contact PEAK? I've tried googling them to no avail and they're not listed on the ATI site either.

I bought the card 2nd hand and when it boots into windows it has artifacts in the shape of pale vertical lines across the screen. Underclocking doesn't seem to remove this either.

I've got a 350W PSU but I've ordered a 400W incase it's a power problem (but surely underclocking would solve that?) and I've also ordered a fan in case it's a heat problem but the artifacts appear even after a cold boot so I'm wondering if the card has been broken.

If anyone has any advice or knows how to contact PEAK that would be most appreciated.

thanks
