Hi everyone and thanks for taking the time to read this ( and my bad english ) .

So yeah, i'm having a really bad stuttering problem in every single game i try to play since i reinstalled windows. My fps is constanlty moving between 30 and 60 fps.

I did a little research to try to solve my problem. I tried everything from forcing Vsync, change my monitor rate, install newest drivers

(except for Catalyst 11.9 because i heard they are the most stable. Even then, i tried many Catalyst drivers without changes)

and nothing worked. Nothing except for Gamebooster that helped me play Thief 3 or Hitman: Blood Money in perfect conditions but did nothing for Dota 2, Black ops, Skyrim or Mass Effect.

Everything was working perfectly before i reinstalled Windows. What am i missing?

Here is my Dxdiag: http://www.qfpost.com/file/d?g=1d1aDVU1U

Thanks!

Is your DirecX up to date? Are there any game updates that you didn't reinstall? Are all your Windows updates current as well as internet explorer?
If you can play some games normal and others not normal then it sounds like some kind of software issue , a hardware issue would be all the time and it wouldn't matter what game you played.

Well it is all the time, except when i'm using Gamebooster that is able to help me with some games.

Everything is up to date and i'm using service pack 3.

Hello Chadauw,

I have been experiencing the same problem for quite some time and I figured out that:

-this problem has apparently nothing to do with graphic card or graphic drivers (same symptoms with different cards and drivers),

-stuttering appears when in-game fps drops below the value of 60 nad goes worse with every lost frame (30 fps seems unplayable, even in games like Minecraft),

- it has to do with quality of your screen and cable attached.

To sum up, first try changing the video cable and if it not works as planned, try using different, better quality screen. HDMI or DVI plug can be the problem, so try changing between screens that are using them.


It is relevant to add, that I haven't figured out my problem yet - I am borrowing friend's screen to try it out soon (will post the result). It seems to happen mostly to the 1920x1080 60 Hz screens.


Cheers!
