Aggressive sensor (desktop) refresh outside AIDA64 (Matrox video card)

Forgive my less educated guess, if I’ve placed my question outside the right section. But, this strikes me as appropriate, considering the nature of my problem.

Well, what troubles me is Aida sensor refresh. To be more exact, I mean exactly refresh itself. Every 30 seconds cycle that results in sensor refresh, for some reason takes places outside Aida 64 as well.

So every 30 seconds, my desktop also follows the same refresh. As if I’m hitting F5 on my desktop. Now consider that I use 4 monitors and this is truly irritating to say least. Of more interesting note is that my card are Matrox (Parhelia PCIe + Parhelia PCI) ones, and I guess, the nature of this refresh covers at least part of the blame. I’ve really tried to search your database, prior of raising my question;

I’ve tried similar resolution mention on this forum in "stability" section but, sadly this brought no change. There is nothing like OSD info and I can’t and wont use any other software. Just for sake of curiosity, I’ve tried with the older Everest version, and I have confirmed the very same refresh problem. I now that this was obviously not always present, because I remember months without these burden. But, I just can’t rationalize how to deal with this?

Mind you that my setup experience no issues with screen/driver stability (each with dedicated hardware overlay) and is certainly capable dealing with multi screen application.

This is never happening on my Ati or Nvidia machine, because Aida’s refresh only remains inside Aida application. I love Aida, but hate this charge. Please advise, how to fix this? Is there some interval option, in case slower refresh (every few minutes?) then say 30 seconds?

Well, looking forward to your inputs.

Regards

Mario

P.S. Yes, this only happens with Aida or Everest, so yes, this is isolated Aida problem and I have not experienced with other applications.

Then please try to go to the Display / GPU page, and select all video adapters you have, one by one. Let me know if it triggers the same desktop refresh or not.

We need to narrow this down to a specific part of the hardware monitoring module of AIDA64 ;)

BTW, what kind of Windows do you have installed? Win7? 32-bit or 64-bit?

My OS is WS2003 32-bit. Gladly I will do anything you ask Fiery, but please could you be more elaborate? Display /GPU page where exactly?

Display / GPU page in AIDA64 :) You can navigate there using the left page menu in AIDA64.

Ah, sorry for that :wacko:

No, alone when choosing either GPU or PCI / AGP, Aida is calm and there is no refreshing. So the very action of going there is not triggering. Only if I would go there in the very second this "general" anomaly of 30 seconds cycle shows up. Other then that - No, nothing happens when I visit GPU page.

I was using Ultramon the same application I always use with my monitors.

Well, I've decided to change my present wallpapers (one background for all monitors), so I opened a new profile, not to upset my old setup; should I want to revert at later date. Once I’ve changed my wallpapers, guess what? No problems with refresh!

AIDA64 OSD is now resting again, and refresh desktop/icons headache is no more!

I like the outcome, but I would love to understand true relation to this.

Anyway, just thought to let you know about my solution :)
