    Hey guys i keep getting this message that windows is performing slowly when I play games like Crysis, Metro 2033 and Dirt 3. I have tried everything from running stock clocks on CPU and GPU but keep getting this message while playing any of those games I mentioned. My PSU has been squealing lots lately like all the time and one of the PCIE connectors looks a little bit melted. I have been wondering should I swap out my PSU for new one.

    Try disabling aero or right clicking on the game, go to properties, and then under compatibility tick disable desktop composition.

    Post a pic of that melted wire.

    May want to consider an RMA if it is melting wires, the squealing could be any thing from the fan to a bad cap.

    disabling desktop composition fixed the issue thanks. Ordering a corsair 1200i had this old Antec power supply for too long lol.

    it appears the issue came back and is asking me to change to the windows basic theme while playing crysis. Has been happening to me for a while now and can't get rid of it while playing games unless i select don't ask me again.

    Fixed the issue must have been a compatibility problem with aero under windows 7. Installed windows 8 and have been gaming for several hours with the message not popping and minimizing my games.

    I used to switch off Aero when playing certain games and that took care of it.
