Hi there! My graphics card as of late has been doing the following, when ever I'm playing a game the screen would freeze for like a second and when it come back the fps in game drop from like 120 to 20 or less.
The thing is that its random, some times it goes days without it happening, and sometimes it happens 3 to 4 times in a day. Ones it happens tho if i quit that game and launch another game, that other game will still have the frame drop,so no matter what game I play after that, its only getting 10 to 24 fps.
The only way I found that fixes it is to restart the PC, but some times after the restart I launch the game again and after 5 min of game play it happens again. I also check the temp of the graphics card and CPU and there is no overheating going on, any idea of what it might be?
Here are my PC specs
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
Maximus II Formula Motherboard
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q9450 @ 2.66GHz (4 CPUs) (OC at MB bios to 3.1Ghz)
Asus GeForce GTX 550 Ti (with 301.42 WHQL drivers)
