View Full Version : stuttering with geforce 8800GTX and vista
06-17-2007, 04:23 AM
With my nvidia 8800GTX graphics card,my 4gig memory,core2 duo 2.66ghz i thought : finished with stuttering...i did all the upgrades and things,suggested on PTaylor's Weblog : have the 58.24 driver for the geforce,downloaded all i had to for the dx,deleted the fsx.cfg and let fsx create a new one...
I have especcially the stuttering when i look to the left or to the right(even if there is no road traffic or heavy scenery stuff)...in front its not so bad.Do others among you have this kind of configuration and can you tell me the eventually solutions you found out?Its quite frustrating to have these problems with these specs.I am open for every possible suggestion!

This might be up to the job?
Sorry about the joke, I couldn't resist it..........
On a more sensible note, have you tried overclocking your processor?
Best and Warm Regards

I thought the vista and 8800 drivers were in the 100's I think
you have the wrong drivers I haven't used drivers below the 90's
for a long long time

The 8800 gtx driver for Vista has been really slow in development and release, 8800 gtx owners have been so angry that perhaps a couple months ago they formed a group to explore the possibility of suing nvidia, because they nelgected developing a driver for the 8800 gtx for Vista. In nvidia's defense the size of the 8800 gtx driver has been described (loki) as large as NT4.
As Don Carlos describes below, make sure that you have the very latest driver for the 8800 gtx for vista, and check often for updates.
DX9 also needs to be repaired. In the Fall I believe DX10 will come out.
That computer room at Columbia looks much like my bedroom, which houses the HAL9000. Although I use old equipment, I'm able to run seven flight simulators at the same time. My FS8#2 computer is down again, I think I have too many things running on it for only a 200 watt power supply, so it has become extremely unstable, HDD's shutting down and not being recognized. I tried a 250 watt power supply and that worked, I could swear that the video graphics looked better. But that was only an experiment that 250 watt power supply is not good enough to install permanently. I need to get a 300 or 400 watt power supply.

Thanks for the answers,but can someone tell me wich is the latest and right driver for the 8800 gtx with vista?On the nvidia site i only find the driver for the "8-series",but nothing speccially for the 8800 gtx and vista...

I'll let someone else answer the 8800 gtx driver question, someone who has one and is familiar with that driver.
I forgot to ask, you installed SP1 for FSX right? A clean install of FSX, then activated it, then before installing any addons you then installed SP1 right? SP1 improves performance quite a bit.
You've probably already done that, I just thought I would throw that in just incase it was overlooked.

go to Nvidia.com
download drivers select Graphic Drivers, 8 series and then whichever Vista you are running 32 or 64 bit the drivers will be like 154 series certified June 1 2007

I have the same symptoms on the specs below, smaller system than yours. I had the latest drivers installed, before going to beta drivers and even overclock my cpu and video cards just a bit and still have the stutters to the left and to the right. I get about 18 FPS out of Newark Liberty and any where from 30 FPS to 70 FPS in the wide open and I will have the ststststutters. Limiting the FPS to 30 did not help either.
Motherbord: Abit KN9 SLI 570
CPU: AMD X2 4600 AM2 Duo Core
Memory: 2 GB COSAIR DDR2 6000 XMS Extreme
Video Card: 2-Nvidia GEFORCE 7600GS 256MB SLI

Do you have ANY other programs running? I have a fairly powerful system I got about 6 months ago (Dell XP410 Core Duo 2GB RAM, NVIDIA 7900GTX (512MB) and had some pausing/lag problems until I turned off ALL OTHER PROGRAMS when I ran FSX. Now, with medium detail it runs great. So except for maybe your software firlewall and virus sentry you might want to try exiting everything esle in the system tray I know it seemed to help me :)
