Nvidia / Geforce 8100
November 29, 2009 at 06:40:34
Specs: Windows XP, 450/256
I have nvidia geforce 8100/nForce 720a graphics ina pretty up to date machine. Sadly most of my photos come up very speckled in display ( using finepix S1000fd camera).
I pulled up the same photos on my sons laptop and hey presto not speckled at all! Can anyone put their finger on wats wrong please? I have updated drivers for the nvidia.
Many thanks

CPU/Ram: 450/256
Only 256 MB of RAM ???
You should install another 256 or 512 more. XP uses all of at least 128.

Have you got onboard graphics as well as the card? If so it might be worth switching over in BIOS to see if the onboard does any better.

Something makes me think it might be a graphics card issue but I'm far from sure. Seems like it has to be either card or drivers.

some other bloke...

The 8100 series is an integrated graphics chip.

When you say they come out speckled do you mean on the screen or printed?

If on the screen you may not have the resolution and/or color depth set right.

Right click on a blank part of your screen and choose properties> settings. What are the resolution and color settings?

That should be good. Perhaps you are blowing the image up too much. Depends on what resolution you used to take the photos.
