Unhappy Strange Performance problem


I have a problem with my Geforce 4 4400 TI and im not sure that its the right place to ask this but im out of idears.

Everything seems to work fine but when i run any opengl application or glxgears the frame freezes for about 1/3 of a second and then it resumes and runs smooth for 3 seconds. This continues for ever and since i get no error messages i dont know how to fix it.

I have attached my Xorg.log file but the only error i can se with 'grep "EE" /var/log/Xorg.log ' is
(EE) Failed to load module "speedo" (module does not exist, 0)
And i dont see how that could be a problem.

I hope someone has the answer to this problem.

I had a similar problem. In my case it turned to be that conky (fork from torsmo) was interfering too much in the performance of the video card with the netgraph. Check out what programs update every 3 seconds.
