Very big gaming problem ! PLEASE HELP !

Hey everyone after a major system cleanup{using advanced system optimizer}
And also instaling the new 256 drivers for nvidia .
My framerate went down dramaticly.

What once was 50 fps is now 20 fps .

this are my specs :

intel core 2 quad q8200 at 2.3
4 gigabyte of ddr2
a nvidia gt220 {rebranded and downclocked 9500gt} 1gb ddr2 ,
vista home premiun 32 bit


could i have made a mistake instaling the new drivers or did i do something wrong at the system clean up

is it possible that i ruined my gpu becouse i overclocked it ? from 500 mhz core and memory, to 600 mhz core and memory
{other models of the gt220 are at 650 mhz core and memory: ..stock speeds.. }

Thank you in advance ,machiel

  1. Hello
    I think its either a driver problem or your OC not being stable, so here is what i recommend
    Do a clean install of your Driver,here is how
    download Driver sweeper(from guru3d.com,then
    1_Go to control panel and uninstall the driver from there
    2_Reboot and go to safemode and open driver sweeper and click "Nvidia" and click clean(this removes some files which weren't deleted)
    3_Boot normally and Install the new driver(latest version)

    As for your OC,revert it back to stock speeds and see if it helps

    Right, but its always recommend to have the latest one(or some versions before the last) if you face a graphic-related problem
