Get Choppy Play Back When Play Dvd


I have a mini-itx based small form factor machine that i'd like to make into a multimedia box. The motherboard is ~1ghz with 1gb of ram. The machine can handle audio, and video files without a problem. Whenever i try to play hulu or dvds however i get choppy playback. (Youtube, even on hd, is fine however). If i get a decent pci video card (only 1 pci slot on the board), would that clear up the chop when i'm trying to play?

Video Card To Play Play Left 4 Dead

Hello there, i was wondering what is the best video card? Because i asked a question a while ago on how to play left 4 dead on a net-book. But the gay there said i need a powerful pc to play it. Ok. I have a video card problem. Because. I think it is weak because it cant even enable the 3d acceleration in plants vs zombies! I was wondering if it has something to do with my video card? Or something wasn't installed like direct-x? And i searched here how to know video card brand. But i followed all instructions and i didn't see one! Or maybe i didn't just notice it? I think it's intel because everything i see is intel. So here is what i wanted in my question:

What is the problem of my video card?

What is the best video card brand?

Can someone tell me all the video card products of intel? And which is the best of it?

Dvd Drive Wont Play Dvd Movies

I have a dell latitude laptop with a dvd drive. I'd like to play dvd movies on it, but they won't play. Does media player not support dvd movies? Do i need some sort of encoder or driver to make the drive play them? If so, where can i download them? The thing had win2k on it, but i removed that and installed xp.

Can't Play Any Dvd Movies

I can read the dvd on either dvd drive in windows (2k), but i can't play any movie. I had powerdvd installed, but had issues (unrelated) with it so i un-installed it manually since i couldn't do do from add/remove programs (received error message). I searched the drive for all the file names associated with the program (powerdvd & cyberlink). Then i used a registry crawler to do the same. I did check the names to be sure there wasn't anything that shouldn't be removed the best i could (there was a couple of hundred). I installed a older dvd program (that i used before), but it won't play any dvd on either drive. These are original movies, not backups. I can read the dvd on either drive, so it's not a hardware issue. I can read other dvds' and burn dvds' (including movie backups) with no issue. Any ideas? (Btw, i don't want to re-install powerdvd again).

Hardware To Play Cs:s

I recently upgraded to a 30" lcd with a resolution of 2560x1600. I used to play cs:s with a 1920x1200 monitor, and it was smooth. However, ever since i upgraded, the game is way too laggy to play. I figure its either cpu or video card. Can anyone advice on which cpu or video card i should get in order to play cs:s with a 2560x1600 monitor? I can even upgrade the whole unit if i have to. My pc is as followed:

Intel pee 840 3. 2ghz
Winfast nvidia 8800gt 512mb

Play Pc Sound Through The Tv

I have recently connected my pc to my lcd tv using an hdmi cable. I have also got a monitor connected so i can extend my desktop to both. The issue i have (though i don't know if this is actually possible) is can i somehow separate the sound? Can i have whatever is on the tv say a video file play sound through the tv and whatever is on the monitor say media player play through the speakers?

I don't have a spare audio jack to connect to the tv as i was hoping the hdmi cable would do the trick. I assume there must be a way to achieve this.

Not Able To Play Certain Dvds

I haven't had this drive for very long, less than a year, and it plays most of my dvds really quite well, but then some don't play at all on any of my programs, wmp 10, asusdvd(came with the drive), and div x. When i try to play it in wmp 10 it gets to the menu fine but when it starts playing the intro of the movie it get distorted and freezes up and makes my computer crash and restart. In the other programs it just doesn't play at all. I have direct x 9c. This is through an asus dvd rom drive. But i tried getting a patch from the powerdvd site, but that didn't help.

Pc Freezes When Play Ut2004 Game

I did a clean install of xp32, installed and updated all the drivers fine, avoided installing the swe ide driver for the nvidia chipset, and the comp is running smooth. Whenever the pc reaches 100% cpu usage, it takes a while to drop down, and the pc gets super laggy. The main problem happens when i try to play ut2004, w/ all the settings cranked up. The main menu loads fine, but after about 30 seconds, everything gets laggy. The mouse even lags like ***. If i don't exit out, the pc freezes. I remember when i first upgraded my comp to this setup, i played ut all the way cranked up just fine. Also hl2 all the way. I don't know what happened since then that caused this problem. I defragged my hdd, ran antivirus. I tried testing both sticks of my 512 ram, that's not the problem. I tried switching around the psu cables so there's nothing else attached to the wires that's attached to my gfx cables. I tried using forceware coolbits2 to make the 2d and 3d clockspeeds the same. The only thing i didn't try yet was changing my psu. My 400w antec is 20 pin, but my mobo takes 24 pin. But i plugged in the 4pin ez-plug on my mobo, which is what users of 20pin psu have to do.

Pc Restarts Instantly When Play Games

When i play games like quake 4 sometimes my pc restarts, just instantly. No warnings or any type of 'blue screen of death', just restarts, literally instantly when i least expect it. Now i've checked my 3500+ and the temps are fine at about 39c idle and my 7600 gt at about 51c idle. The much i can say is my antec 420 watt power supply was making really worrying noises lately and stinks of radiation. Sometimes i hear little sparks. My ram the crucial ballistix dd400 at 2-2-2-5 and i hav'nt really tested them yet for temps. My pc has been running just fine for months until my games started to bust up like this. The motherbard im using is the a8n-e rev2. The crappy power supply is the antec 420 watt. I cant even find its real name on the net so it must be cheap. It orginally came with a case. But if needs be i'm more than happy to buy an enermax liberty 500watt.

Play Windows 95 Game On Vista

It there any way i can get my theme park game for windows 95 working on my laptop that is windows vista? I love this game, and want to play on it again but when i click on the file to start the game it says this system does not support full screen mode. Is there anything i can do?

Answer:- a lot of programs from 95/98 won't work, even with compatibility for the relevant os enabled. In those cases pretty much the only answer is to use a program called dosbox, dos box emulates a dos environment, its a free open source program. It's guaranteed to work for any game or program that will no longer work on nt based windows and above: http://www.Dosbox.com/

Computer Goes Down To 4 Bit Colour When Play Games

My modem can only connect once. If it is disconnected or the computer has been on for a while, the moden gets an error 50: request not supported. Unless i constaintly have music playing while i dial up to the internet, the sound will not work while i am on the internet, but sometimes works after i disconnect. Occasionally when i play games with high graphics, the computer goes down to 4 bit colour and has a "serious error". I would prefer not to have to re-install.

Computer Shuts Down When I Play Online Game

I have a problem that i dont know the source. I am running windows xp pro, athlon xp 2400, 512mb ram, and plenty of space on harddrive. When i play this online game, (conqueronline.com. Au), my comp always shuts down in the middle of the game. However, if i do normal surfing or play single-player game, watch movies, on my comp, it's fine. Does anyone know what might be the problem? I am suspecting that my motherboard could be the source of the problem, but not sure!

Video Lags When Play Mkv Files

I prefer to use one player for all my videos. So far i have had no trouble using windows media player for everything. I have the k-lite codec pack and the matstroka lite codec pack. Sometimes when i play mkv on my wmp it works except the video lags behind the audio. It will occasionally speed up to catch up to the audio. If i restart my computer it will work fine. I just want to know if there is anything else i can do to fix this so i dont have to go through the trouble of restarting my computer. Additional details:- ok so i also tried using classic media player and cccp codec pack and it still doesnt work. Is there something in the settings in my computer that i have to change?
