Question about Olympus Stylus 400 Digital Camera

Trouble with video recording

I changed my card from 16MB to 256 MB. Although at first it worked just fine and I could grab videos of 400 secs and more non-stop, then suddenly I could not; now I can only grab video for a 20 secs time. I can't find anything in the menu that would help me fix the problem.

    Sillygirl , well the card was actually reformatted and I had all the pictures deleted before that. Thas, the card was empty and clean. In HQ it would not grab video any more than 20 secs while in SQ that's no more than 90secs; that's also the default time for a 16MB card, but not for a 256MB card. Now, might there be any "buffer" thing, just like on pcs? Thanks, anyway.

The length of the movies you can record is dependent on both the memory you have left on the card, and the recording mode you are on. With a clean card, and on the default recording mode, your movies should go back up in length. you might be in HQ record mode while you should be on SQ for longer recording time. If all fails, try reformatting the card. Good luck, hope this helped.

This card is their unsupported list, so it's not surprising to see you're having trouble.

You can find their supported list here:
Anything in the 300-400 series for nvidia should be really good, or the 3000-4000 for ATI cards.
You should be able to find a decent card for under about $75. I like for graphics cards.

My system has a ddr 256 MB but it shows 192 mb only. what is the reason and solution plz


Your graphics card is sharing your system memory.

This means that you physically have 256 MB of Ram in you laptop, but the operating system can only use 192 MB of Ram because 64MB of Ram is dedicated to your on-board graphics.

Hope this answers your question!
Please remember to let me know if this information was useful!

Change ram from 512 to 1 gig bios cannot read added ram

The original 2 sticks of 256 Mb of RAM gives you a total of 512
Mb of RAM. Two 512 Mb of RAM gives you a total of 1 Gb of RAM.
With two sticks of 512 Mb of RAM are you sure you got a total of 192 Mb of RAM, this is a lot less than the original RAM total of 512 Mb?
Should this be 1920 Mb of RAM?
If this 192 Mb is correct then the RAM modules are either not compatible with the laptop or if the RAM modules are not from the same manufacturer then they may not work together.

Most laptops have video cards that use part of the main RAM for video RAM, that is why the available RAM is less than the installed RAM modules. The amount of RAM the video card grabs depends upon the type of video card and in some cases the amount of video RAM can controlled in the BIOS setting.

DFI NB78-BC, chipset i845PE does not work with TNT2 Vanta VL 16MB

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but the DFI NB78-BC does not support the TNT2 Vanta VL 16mb. so what you need to do is take your computer into a computer store have them look at it and they can get you the correct video card that is compatible for your computer!

Not enough video memory

The Inspiron 4100 has a 16MB video card built in to the motherboard. It is not upgradable. It appears that the system doesn't meet the minimum requirements for the program, so you'll have to get a more powerful system to run that application. sorry =(
