Hi all,

 

Got an old PC that was initially used (seldomly) as an HTPC in the living room, which I now my main PC in the office. (4 to 6 hours a day in use)

 

Here are the specs (bought in 2011):

 

- ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 mobo

- AMD Phenom II X6 1055TT 2.8 Ghz processor

- 8GB of DDR3

- Windows 10 64 bits

- Kingston SNV425-S2 64GB SSD and several Western digital 2 and 3TB HDs

- Nvidia Geforce 8800 GTS

 

Anyways, to make a long story short, the graphics card built into the motherboard (890GX northbridge with a Radeon HD 4290 graphics engine) became legacy in a windows update about a couple of years ago. I was able to continue using it by changing some parameters in the registry but this trick no longer works apparently.

 

As a temp solution I added an even older Graphics card, the Nvidia Geforce 8800 GTS. This seems to work but I get constant "freezes" in Chrome, It usually involves embedded videos.

 

We are talking about freezes that last from 2 to 10 seconds and sometimes the screen goes completely black and then it recovers. It recovers pretty much all the time. It is just annoying and slows me down. When this happens, I can move the mouse and even run other applications. So it seems pretty limited to Chrome.

 

Any ideas on how to to solve this?

 

 

 

PS: Since it could be a GPU problem, I was thinking of upgrading it anyways since it is so old. What would you recommend considering the age and use of the PC. Mostly office work, although I'd like to play some games too! My screen is FHD and not planning a change in the short run.

 

Something like a GTX 1050Ti or equivalent Radeon RX price bracket? What do you think?

 

Thanks,

I think that I would isolate the problem...before thinking of buying any component.

 

Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.
 
Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  List last 10 Event Viewer log
  List Installed Programs
  List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
 
Click Go and paste the content into your next post.
 
Also...please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.

   Go to Piriform's website, and download the free version on the left.  Click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version. You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.

    After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
 
     Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):
 
post-33068-0-86653600-1480692866_thumb.j

     Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot.

     Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard

Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the ADD REPLY or REPLY TO THIS TOPIC button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.

This is the pc configuration from Speccy:

***** Finally, looking around for a solution I've seen that some people suggested that turning "hardware accelation when available" off in Chrome's settings allowed regular playback of videos without freezes. I did this and it seems to work but then I loose Google Maps 3D, which I use quite a bit! I thought this might help you too.

 

Kind regards and MANY thanks for your support Louis!

 

Pere

I would uninstall Sandboxie and ToolWiz...Sandboxie because a driver problem is asserted and ToolWiz because it is now discontinued.and appears to be just one more mindless app that does nothing useful...but is often installed by users who just don't know better and who believe the claims of any/all software developers.

Disable Hardware Acceleration in Chrome and see if that helps.

https://ccm.net/faq/35743-google-chrome-how-to-disable-hardware-acceleration

 

This has proven to solve the issue. Thank you JohnC_21.

 

Unfortunately, I need hardware acceleration, at least in certain situations. For example, I use extensively google maps in 3D. This feature does not work without hardware acceleration in Chrome.

 

I guess I could turn it on and off when needed. It's just a pain in the ...! Been looking online and it appears to be a pretty random and widespread problem involving Chrome + Windows 10 and Nvida drivers...

 

Anyways, thank you guys for the help. 

 

Now I am left to ponder if this issue will remain if I buy an new GPU... :scratchhead:

See if the latest Firefox will work for you. You can download the portable version here which will not require you to do a complete install to the hard drive. The latest version is supposed to be faster than Chrome.

Thanks guys.  :thumbup2:

 

I think I will try Firefox. I am starting to be tired of living in the google ecosystem....maybe this is a good excuse to start switching!
