Sam G Posted December 20, 2009 Report Share Posted December 20, 2009 (edited) System: Dell Precision Laptop M65 Operating System: Windows 7 Professional 64-bit (fresh install, not an upgrade) Graphics Card: Nvidia Quadro FX 350M (VEN_10DE DEV_01DC SUBSYS_01C81028REV_A1) Driver Info: Driver Date: 3-11-2009 Driver Version: 188.8.131.5268 I recently migrated from Windows XP Pro SP3 to Window 7 Pro 64-bit. While on XP, I was playing Final Fantasy 11 without any graphical problems. I always had relatively poor frame rates when in very crowded areas, but that's due to my entry-level video card. The low frame rates are not bad, it's rather expected with most entry to mid level cards in those in-game areas. However, since I did my fresh install of Win7, the game graphics have a stutter every 2-3 seconds. This stutter causes the game to become choppy and basically unplayable. I've already tried drivers #: 179.68, 186.91 and 190.73 from this website, but to no avail. I followed some of the suggestions from the "Troubleshooting Gaming Issues" sticky, but everything thus far has pointed to a driver problem. I'm open to try any suggested troubleshooting methods to further flush out the problem. I'm really trying to avoid partitioning my hard drive to reinstall & dual boot XP just for a stutter-free gaming experience. I'm currently back on version 179.68 as it gave me the more manageable in-game stutter to do basic character movement. I was wondering if anyone else with this same video card has had problems similar to mine with either this game or another while using Windows 7 (64-bit)?
