hey all,

 

Sinds last week I have been experiencing stuttering not only in games but also when the pc is idle. 

A month ago I replaced my graphics card with a gtx 760 because I still had it lying around.

Before that I had a gtx 1080 but it was sold to buy a 3070. This 760 is really the bottleneck of my pc at the moment, but I can't find anywhere online that this would cause stuttering. Is this the case or do I have another problem?

 

thanks

Anton

Hey Anton, it's possible that it's a bottleneck but I doubt it should be that bad. I recommend that you try to DDU your graphics drivers to remove them completely and install fresh ones.

 

You can find DDU here: https://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html

 

Quick instructions:

Make sure Windows doesn't automatically install drivers and boot into safe mode (note that you can't use PIN if you normally use that to log into Windows. So I advice to try to log into Windows first with your password to make sure you have the correct one).

Run the tool and uninstall Nvidia display driver

Reboot into Windows normally and install drivers.

 

Do this again when you get your RTX 30.

How are you experiencing stuttering at idle?

What visual cue is telling you this is happening?

I ask because to me idle is desktop and i dont see how you would see stuttering, screen flickering maybe?

Its like when your pc freezes but very briefly. When playing music for example you can hear the music stuggle to play corectly.

Well if this didnt happen with your previous card and is happening now with this card, i would suspect the card.

Did you use the driver uninstall utility to reload the driver?

Well the thing is if the problem didnt happen before with the previous video card, and now it happens after putting an old spare card in there, its probably that card.

You know the little 760 is a bottleneck, its and old card, and this problem started after putting it in the system.

Until you remove it, i wouldnt start looking at everything else. 

99.5% its the old 760 video card.

Leave it be until you replace the old card.
