Graphics trouble on windows 7

Hi there,

I performed a clean install of windows 7 on my PC and now I have some major graphic performance issues. At first sight the graphics seem OK, but they are very very slow. Resizing windows, scrolling on webpages, or starting up a game all looks like i have a 1MB VGA card. Even a 2D game runs on less than 1 FPS.

I have tried various drivers for my graphics card, even physically swapped it for an old 6800GT (same thing, but then again also the same drivers). There is no abnormal CPU or memory usage and other than the graphics the system runs fine. The very same system worked perfect on XP and vista.

System details:

Windows 7 pro 64 bit, directx 11.

ASUS striker II formula MB

Intel core2 duo E8400, currently unclocked at 3.00 ghz

ASUS EN9800GTX graphics card

4 x 2gb OCZ memory - 4gb dual channel


Did anyone experience this, and maybe have a solution to it?

You might want to check the Asus site  for chipset drivers for your particular MB and Win7 64-bit. Also, check the graphics card BIOS against the ones on that site. Did you install the graphics driver from Asus or Nvidia?
