Specs: WIN MX PRO, 451mHz 512mb ram

Hi, when i play games or whatch DVD's on my PC they are jerky. The do-not "flow". I have checked the properties for my Video and graphics and they are working OK? I have tried reducing the accelaeration in the device manager but this has not helped.


Any Idea's

Are your system specs you listed correct?

450Mhz 512RAM
Packard Bell?

If so I would recommend replacing the PC if you plan on doing gaming and video.

If at first you dont fix it, Try harder!

Stop jerky graphics

1.Right click "My Computer"
2.Select "Manage"
3.Click on "Device Manager"
4.Double click on your Zip under "Disk Drives" ( it may be listed as "IMG VP01" or something similar - pick the one that's not a hard drive)
5.Disable the device

I have for a long time had problems with "jerky" graphics in some 3d games and 3dmark, and have had relativly high cpu loads in idle condition.
The cpu load would pulse from 1-2% up to 10-12%-load with about three-five seconds intervals...(in idle)
The jerking has not been due to low perfomance hardware or old drivers and I have had the problems on two seperate systems.
If you are connected to a LAN and have similar problems, this might be the solution:

1.RightClick "MyComputer"
2.Select "Manage"
3.Click on "Device Manager"
4.DoubleClick on your NIC under "Network Adapters"
5.In the new window, select the "Advanced" tab
6.Select "Connection Type" and manually set the value of your NIC. (Not "Auto Sense" which is default.)
7.You should reboot...
On my systems the "jerking" in 3D games was completely gone, and so was the high idle cpu load.

Hi, i have tried the suggested fix's. Still n good.
When i run DxDiag, and check the driect draw and 3d tests then run but they run slowly? This has only just started happening on my PC since i re-formatted. I have made sure the relevent drivers are in place and working. Any other Ideas'
