Windows 7 Games in Win 7

Good day guys, girls and gamers. I had a problem with lagging in Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. The one day I was so desperate that I activated my Memory Diagnostic Tool at the startup menu. I just wanted to see if this will have an effect on the problem.

Well I am astounded, my lagging has gone totally but in XP it is still present. Why is it still present in XP and not 7? I have downgraded my Nvidia drivers, no joy. FSX also seems to be faster when it loads. GRID is now lag free.:):p;)

I am not saying that this might work for you, but it never hurts to try.

Good luck.

Hi crotiusf16,
welcome to the forum..
Glad to hear you got rid of the lag although not exactly sure what you mean by 'downgraded drivers'?

Thanks for the welcome. I have installed prev versions of the drivers, but still no joy from them. I have a 9600GT 512MB DDR3 256bit. Can u maybe advise me on this?
5.0 Ghz AMD 64bitter
4Gig OCZ gaming RAM
160 (XP) and 320 (win 7) SATA HDDs
9600GT 512MB DDR3 GFX

From what you said about memory diagnostics, I'm kind of thinking maybe your RAM is on it's final lag, if the problem returns I suggest swapping out some or all of your RAM modules.
