How are things running now.

Better, but not perfect.

can you confirm that your MB has an integrated video chip please.

What is that? In things like Hardware I'm a Noob ;) I can only say which Computer I use: HP CQ5212de - Graphiccard and RAM are bought - the Motherboard should be the same.

:lol:

Can you tell us what has improved and what has not - is the picture still fuzzy.

You can tell if there is an integrated video chip as you will have a VGA port as in the attachment below.

NB: These ports can sometimes be present but not used, in this instance they will normally be covered by a plastic cap.

It isn't fuzzy; at some points it laggs and it has never done before!

Yes there's a VGA port.

Is there a pattern to the lags as in does it only happen when you are gaming or have multiple applications open.

Good that you do have a VGA port as you can use that if need be as part of the troubleshooting process.

I say it now more clearlier: It only lags when I'm aiming with guns. Now it is much better, but not perfect. I can play games without any problem but there are Very-very-little-laggs. The FPS goes from 60 to 40 (when I'm aiming) and there are little lags. I have been closed all applications before playing games and the problem is only when I'm gaming. :)

I am asking about how things are now and not how things were in your OP.

From your reply #18

It isn't fuzzy; at some points it laggs and it has never done before!

It is not fuzzy so it is an improvement and a change on how it was in your OP, the lags may have also changed and that is why I asked <_<

Couple of tests for the video card;
To test the VRam http://www.technibbl...ry-stress-test/
Burn in test http://www.ozone3d.net/benchmarks/fur/
If the video card does not fail the burn in test do not let it run for longer than 20 minutes maximum.

I've tested all games now and it seems that there aren't lags anymore. Should I still make the Graphic Card Test?

Thanks for the update Gerrit :thumbsup:

In all honesty I would do nothing further if things are stable, the tests are intended to stress the card to see if it produces any video memory errors and this could cause a temperamental card to fail.

Hopefully you will have no further problems with the card but if you do please feel free to come back to this topic at any time.

Good luck :thumbsup:
