Default Re: 8400M GS : Low performences

I also have this problem. I'm using Ubuntu 7.10 with the nVidia driver 100.14.19.
I haven't tried the beta driver yet, though it sounds as if it really doesn't matter which one you use. Same results either way. I am very interested in getting this working properly.
I really don't want to go back to XP. Not nearly as fun to develop in.

Don't waste your time, I use the beta driver and I still have this problem.
This lack of information from Nvidia is getting annoying.

By the way, I get 100% CPU usage (Dual Core T7300 2.0 Ghz) when using any 3D effect, and I doubt this is normal.
And my effects are still lagging...

PLEASE NVIDIA TECHIES SAY SOMETHING ABOUT THAT.

Just thought I would add this:

Just tried Kooldock under KDE, which doesn't rely on any GTK or Compiz libraries that I know of. The problem shows up here too in the EXACT same way..

This means that it IS an NVIDIA-problem and as such, I wonder when we will get at least a reply?

Trying it now, same thing. I have also tried the 100.14.23 with no luck. What's the difference between the two anyway?

Nope, nothing. Using the 169.04 with the same results.

Personally, what's bugging me the most, is that we wont even get a comment from NVIDIA. Totally ignoring their customers, is that really a good image to put out?

As far as I can see they don't reply to "problematic" posts at all - especially for posts where people complain about low performance.

I guess they already know about, but maybe its hardware related so ... who knows :-/

I've installed the latest 169.07 drivers but they fix nothing at all.

I still have my effects laggy for 4 seconds before they get fluid and when I don't use them for awhile, the same thing happens again.
It's been 4 months now I'm facing this issue and it is ANNOYING. This makes Compiz unusable...

Moreover, there is something I do not understand. This issue seems to happen not on all 8400M GS cards...

Once again I'm attaching a bug report, if that helps.

Please Nvidia guys, make a statement about this.

I have the same issue. The issue is described here http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=99554

Try running in a terminal :
# while true; do nvidia-settings -q all > /dev/null; sleep 25; done

It fixed the problem for me. I've put it as a task in Gnome Sessions so that it runs when Gnome starts.
