    All that means is that the graphics card is not working to its potential and perhaps pointing out other system problems. It doesn't mean anything about the card or driver itself. Basically, other system problems are not evidenced like that.

    Never claimed anything of this sort. But the converse is not true either.
    Here is the new zip. Still without AMD drivers.

    Akamai is still installed.

    This is a well-known problem causer, even under Window 7:

    gdrv gdrv Kernel 2009-03-12 11:22:29 PM

    I would even uninstall Samsung software while testing.

    This is very strange to see, especially with this date, on Win 8 machine:

    etdrv etdrv Kernel 2009-03-19 10:59:06 PM

    These are good, but still should install latest from AMD:

    amdkmdag amdkmdag Kernel 2013-08-30 8:02:50 PM
    amdkmdap amdkmdap Kernel 2013-08-30 6:32:32 PM

    Akamai NetSession Interface "c:\users\{YOURUSERNAME}\appdata\local\akamai\netsession_win.exe" -PC\OMITTED HKU\S-1-5-21-3287772634-474344477-139514193-1001\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    Gigabyte Easytune or similar.

    I already uninstalled akamai and Samsung software. The folder you mention doesnt exist
    All gigabyte software was only installed last week. (Installed to update BIOS, and already uninstalled)
    And AMD were also uninstalled:

    Are you even looking at the new zip? It says 0 views.

    Of course, yes.

    Then you should delete the startup entry for Akamai.

    Doesn't matter when you installed this, that or the other thing. You're soliciting my help and if you don't want to follow, please don't bother me then.

    I am following exactly what your are saying.
    I said that I uninstalled Akamai and everything else you said. Ran CCleaner to clean any registry values. There is no Akamai in start up.
    Please excuse me for not understanding how something that I installed yesterday was causing me problems a month ago. I still did everything you said.

    It's not about what happened a month ago, or today or any time. You are complaining about a card that you think is not working well and we are making the system work well.

    GDRV.sys is still showing in driver list.

    Intel persistence module should be disabled too, as well as hkcmd. Same for Delayed Launcher. Those are for onboard video. Better even to completely uninstall Intel Graphics software.

    See, we're making progress.

    How do you want me to uninstall those things then?
    I already uninstalled all Gigabyte apps and the intel graphics(and its disabled in bios).
    Deleted GDRV.sys manually from \windows and disabled the rest you said.
