Stream Freezes / Returns with the preview Window looking half-sized mid-stream


New Member
So I get this error sometimes on OBS, I think it froze when my GPU reached around 75degs, but thing is, it was never like that before. So what happens is that the entire Windows will freeze for a moment, around seconds then it will resume but the preview window will look half-sized and it would remove my chat, which is weird, why just the chat?

Here's a perfmon /rel report.

Noticed a line in OBS logs
22:48:08.933: [game-capture: 'Game Capture'] ----------------- d3d11 capture freed ----------------
22:48:08.995: [game-capture: 'Game Capture'] Found D3D11 11.0 device on swap chain
22:48:08.996: [game-capture: 'Game Capture'] d3d11 shared texture capture successful
22:48:09.144: [game-capture: 'Game Capture'] shared texture capture successful
22:48:38.615: Switched to Preview/Program mode

So it looks like it got froze for around 29 seconds then returned.

I've tried different variations of NVIDIA but none of their versions seem to fix it. Attached is the OBS logs.
