Question about Nvidia Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Video error-some games flicker between superfast and superslow

Defense Grid and Psychonauts suffer from this problem to the degree of unplayability (source games are unaffected). I'm not sure how to describe it other than the game will run extremely fast intermittently and then run very slowly the rest of the time, causing severe control and gameplay issues.
The only thing I have found that works to remedy it somewhat is to reinstall the graphics card driver, then restart. This fixes it for an hour or so, and then it (seemingly) arbitrarily goes back.
Please, help!

    DirtyDozen's solution didn't do anything different than what had already been happening when I reinstalled the driver.

Audio works - video not so much
