Video performance has degraded

I keep gettng an error message in a small window that pops up on the desktop peridically saying "Video performance has degraded" with "Visual Performance" on its header bar. Yet, I do not see or notice any degradation. What does this mean? How can I solve it?

Thanks

  1. What do you have for Windows version and what do you have for a video card, motherboard and cpu?
    Have you tried updating the driver for the video card?

    Windows 7 Home Pemium 64 bit

    Video Card: Integrated 1600MB Intel® HD 3000 &
    512MB AMD RadeonTM HD6470M

    Motherboard: Dell Laptop?

    CPU: Intel® CoreTM i3 2310M (2.1GHz/3MB cache)

    I think the problem started with updating the video card, BIOs, etc.
  3. It may have something to do with the fact that you have a Radeon 6470m and the Intel HD 3000 , did you have them connected in hybrid crossfire? When you upgraded the video card drivers you took them out of any crossfire setup which is what happens when you load new drivers. If they were connected together before then that couldbe why your getting those messages since you would lose video performance if it now is a single device that is giving you video.
