Open GL was used before Directx , and some consoles or older software might use Open GL .
tripple bufffering is also used for Open GL.
but asfar as i know ,you select NVIDIA menu on the desktop PC.
then you go to 3D options .
and then you select Directx somewhere instead of Open GL.
and you disable tripple buffering .
And to be honest , if you dont know much about driving yet , would you drive your new lambo for fun?
then why the hell did you consider overclocking a GTX card would be a good idea for a noob.
i dont wanna insult but , buddy.
dont do that shit without research and help.
you might also want to update the NVIDIA driver.
first check your Monitor website and see if there's a special Monitor update driver , for your screen resolutions and EDID info.
search with the model number of your screen for display drivers .
ifnot , then dont bother searching further websites,
use the Universal Plug and Play Display driver of Microsoft.
then after that the video adapter driver,
which is your videocard driver.
look on NVIDIA DRIVERS website for the latest GTX 660TI driver, make sure you always completly Uninstall older adapter drivers .
you dont need to uninstall the new Monitor driver obviously.
and i can tell you how to change the windows timeouts for startup and shutdown.
(time to kill) .
it's indeed located in windows registry ( the registry you find with run screen and the command regedit).
the timeouts are located under current control settings asfar as i know .
BUT , its the WRONG ADVISE
the right answer is never in editing the register manually .
thats a user temp fix , but not a real fix to the issue.
you have to think what started the problem.
did you do a wrong flash , then revert back to the old.
did you set the wrong settings , then check if it still works on default settings .
open GL indicated a problem with direct x
did the program you try to run , install directx updates or not .
make sure you Always install directx ,if the game or program install asks.
if you use older directx 9 programs , you might need to search microsoft website for more directx9 updates for the game and windows 7.
also check if the game /program has a support folder on the CD/DVD.
some programs might need extra software or drivers to run properly.
like physx or engine updates/
