Choppy Video Playback, and Slow PC

Dear friends

I know I am posting identicle issue which have been already discussed in earlier posts. But my case is slightly different.

I am helpless as I find no other solution but to request for ur assistance.

I had nvidia Graphic card which went boom. So I had to connect directly through my motherboard which is Nvidia Geforce 9800.
As soon as I did this my VIDEO went choppy. I was asked to download the update for the Motherboard driver( 285.62-desktop-win7-winvista-32bit-english-whql) which i downloaded and updated. Now not only the VDo went choppy but everything is choppy like minimizing/ opening the windows are not smooth.

Funny thing is now whenever I try to open NVIDIA control panel from the System tray, the same is closed by Data Execution Prevention.
I don't understand the problem nor can I fix it. Please help. I am using Vista as operating System.

  1. We are missing some information, like what exactly are the components of your system, what are you using to play the video, and what format the video is.

    For now, the only thing we can really advice is to do a new install of the driver using the clean option (during install).
  2. ~~ Window vista Home premium with Sp2 - 32 bit
    ~~ AMD Phenom 9650 Quad-Core processor 2.30 GHZ
    ~~ 4 GB Ram
    ~~ NVIDIA® GeForce® 8200 motherboard

    I am using VLC to play the video and the formats are like mp4, avi, etc and even the DVDs. Further, the VDO's in Itunes are also the same.

    I did unstall the display driver and then restarted the computer and installed again. But still no luck.

    Like i said above, Funny thing is now whenever I try to open NVIDIA control panel from the System tray, the same is closed by Data Execution Prevention.

    Further in my device manager I am seeing new entry as "VSO devices > Pcouffin device for 32 bits systems and just before "pcouffin" there is a question mark. I clicked on update driver but it says it already is updated.

    My computer just went blank for few seconds and then came back and I got the alert msg that Display driver stopped working and now recovered.... Don't understand anything....
  3. BTW monitor is "AOC 2236" = 22 inches, if that can help.
    maximum resolution allowed is 1920x 1080 pixels.

    2. I COULD GO TO NVIDIA CONTROL PANEL AFTER RUNNING IT AS ADMIN. HOWEVER, NO MATTER WHAT I DO ... THE PROBLEM PERSISTS.

    Dear LothDK

    I still have not been able to resolve the issue fully. I not only did the clean installation of the Display drivers but also I did the clean installation of the operating System only. I am now using Windows 7 Ultimate with SP1.

    But what I found out is the issue is relating to my display drivers, as now not only the Videos are choppy but sometime the screen goes blank and comes back only and I get the Windows notification that the display had some problem/ crashed and now recovered.

    This Motherboard VIDIA® GeForce® 8200 is a new motherboard which is not even 3 months old. I dont know what is the problem.
  7. These drivers immediately did this to my WMC and all video; 9600GT, I downgraded drivers; clean install. Everything back to normal, trying new drivers immediately(beta ones) to see if they got it right...
