Just today I installed my old graphics card into the pc I'm using now. It has any extra pci-e slot, so I disabled the card I already have in this pc(8800gt 512mb) to use the old one(6200 256mb turbo cache). After testing out the old card, I uninstalled it and enabled the other card. Only to find out after playing Joint Operations, my frames are fine and stay the same(everything runs smooth), but every 20 secs or so I get a quick freeze and my cpu will jump up from 8-15, then will drop back to 0 and repeat like that. I reinstalled joint ops and punkbuster, but with no avail . I reinstalled pb and thought that may be the problem, but was still happening. So now I'm just trying to figure out what to do here.

When installing the older graphics card, I'm sure nothing inside the case with touched or shifted, but who knows I might of moved something maybe even a little bit to have this happen. I was thinking it was the graphic card drivers at first, but after updating them, I'm not so sure.

Thanks

When you say "uninstalled it", did you uninstall the drivers for it too? I'm not real up on graphics cards, but there are a couple of people here that are and I'm sure they can come up with something else.. :thumbsup:

Yeah I went to System>Hardware>Device Manager>Display Adapters>Clicked uninstall on the 6200

When I installed the 6200, I didn't update the drivers for it, just opened the game up to test it. I downloaded Driver Sweeper, ran it and reinstalled the drivers again. That didn't seem to help anything though.

EDIT:I think I figured out what the problem is, I just totally removed the 8800gt from the case and installed the 6200. Went into a server and noticed I wasn't getting the quick freezes. So now the question is, how can I fix the problem with the 8800gt?

Try cleaning any dust out of your 8800gt.

Also, is it overheating any?
If I am helping you and I do not respond within 24 hours, please send me a PM. :)

I would try uninstalling the drivers by going to add/remove programs in windows xp or older, or programs and features in windows vista. Anything that says nvidia display adapter, uninstall. Then, with the 8800GT in, install the drivers for it.

Also, did you remember to plug the 6-pin power connector to the 8800GT?
