Hi Guys!

Need some help!

1. Running EVGA NVIDIA GTX285
2. AMD Phenom 2850 X4
3. 4GB RAM
4. Vista 32 Bit
5. Zalman 22" Interlaced Monitor
6. DDD 4.01 Tridef Experience

A few weeks ago, I started having a problem where games would be running unusually slow. 10 to 15 FPS slow! Unreal Tournament 3, NFS SHIFT, you name it. My games used to run properly and fast with this GPU, then POOF!

This is what I have tried:

1. Uninstalling and reinstalling NVIDIA drivers.
2. Completely uninstalling iZ3D and NVIDIA stereo drivers (and registries and directories too).
3. Running driver cleaners.
4. Uninstalling and reinstalling earlier versions of DDD drivers...no difference.
5. Running MSCONFIG and getting rid of everything I can. No difference.
6. Running Task Manager, and turning running services on and off. No difference.

This is what DOES fix the problems:

1. Installing an AMD 4890 GPU.
2. Changing the output from interlaced to above/below. Some outputs work better than others. Running the ATI GPU still does a better job, though.
3. Running with iZ3D or NVIDIA drivers = full speed. However, these drivers are completely uninstalled when DDD is running.

I'm stumped. Any ideas?

Regards,
Neil

That doesn't sound too surprising too me. I only got the DDD drivers to work with a couple of games (like HL2) at full-speed. In the event that the drivers even worked at all there seemed to be a whole lot of slow-down. Why they would work good and then stop, that I don't know. But its not surprising given the questionable quality of the driver to begin with.

I'm thinking there has to be a conflict somewhere - like a double injection.

With AMD, it works great. I thought if I switched back, the problems would go away. They did not.

I used the GTX285 to get ready for something for EA with the DDD drivers. It should behave like a workhorse.

Regards,
Neil
