Do you have any programs running in the tray for example that could cause your problems, do you have the RAID set up? What exactly happens when these pauses happen, give a detailed description. Does the sound stutter or is it just the video output that pauses?
Can you see the harddrive access light lighting up when the pauses happen? Does the HD make access noise?
Sorry about all the questions, but it really is kinda hard to know were to start...
You are very right to ask those questions
- i have raid setup
- no programs in tray except fraps, and the systray driver icons (sound and printer)
- the pause is very very short, just about a second or less, framerate output drops to 0 and than it goes back to normal. I think it's just the video that pauses, sound goes on, and than video catches up, by skipping some frames. - I tried, and i saw no access from the harddrive, and i think that this is normal, as all should be loaded in ram, after the level is loaded. This is why Far Cry requires 1gb of ram to be run propertly.
It seems it might be a video problem, and i should try new drivers. I currently have the latest version from the FS support site, and i noticed that forceware downloaded from nvidia does not work
I will go to laptop2.go and see if it makes any difference.
Later edit: The laptop2go site does not work. Is there any way to install directly the latest drivers from the nvidia site?
