Video Controller problems

July 3, 2005 at 12:56:24
Specs: Windows XP, Intel Pentium 4, 128 MB R

I'm having problems with a Video Controller that has the '!' mark under Other devices at Device Manager, because every time I view a video file on fullscreen on Windows Media Player, Winamp v2.91, or RealPlayer, it looks choppy and somewhat pixeled. I tried looking for the Video driver on my Motherboard CD but it's not there. I wanted to watch my high quality video files that are supposed to have a clean picture without all the choppy framerates in Full screen on my 1.6 Ghz computer because it has happened to me since I got my computer fixed last week. Can anybody help me?

Not enough ram. 128mb is barely enough to run XP without trying to get anything as intensive as full screen video to run.

Double your ram as a minimum. Go for 512 as a preferred and then post back if you still have a problem.

I used to have a signature but it disappeared and I just couldn't be bothered writing another so please feel free to ingore this.

That 128MB RAM must be a mistake?? I see Pentium 4... I find it hard to believe they would hand out a mere 128M with a pentium 4??!!

Jeez BB, please check before you make wild statements yet again, eMachines early P4's came standard with 2 x 64 PC800 Mem, and Dell's, HP, Compaq all have done the same, even today many branded PC's only have 256mb..................

The poster wanted a solution not hot air!!!

You really need to update the Video Driver, if Windows Update does not offer then head over to the following site and download EVEREST HOME EDITION:

Quite agree it may be best to invest in more memory but if it is PC800 RAMBUS it may not be an economical proposition.

hiho:
Maybe in your part of the world... but I have 3 hp's and an ibm. 2 hp's came standard with 512 the older hp as well as the ibm came with 256. I did have an ibm 128 but that was 8 or 10 years ago.

Are my statements wild... or is it you that's a tad out of date?
