My notebook has 64 bit vista, 4 gigs ram, dual 8800m cards, updated drivers and the most recent version of quicktime available. I installed Bad Mojo Redux from Gotgame Entertainment and none of the in-game videos play right. They scramble, they flicker black, the sound might chug. Usually all three of these things happen.
Oddly enough, the actual gameplay portion itself plays GREAT. I can move the little roach over sticky floors, bottle caps, and pre-chewed gum with the best of them, but of course the videos are meant to blend in seamlessly with the surrounding environment, so there goes a significant part of the atmosphere/story/clues/eye-candy right there.
I opened up the install directory and individually played some of the movies with Quicktime to see if I saw the same error, but they played fine. I don't think it's quicktime persee, but what do I know? The resolution scales down to really tiny to play the game, maybe that, combined with some other setting in vista is causing the issue?

You need to have 6 gigs of free dynamic ram.(Not including that used by the operating system and any other applications you have.
The way that memory is organised in a computer these days is usually in pairs or DRAM (dynamic random access memory) sticks which are matched. This allows the CPU to withdraw data from both memory sticks in the same clock cycle (DDR double data rate) which improves the over all speed of the processing.
So legal combinations over 4 gigs which will use the dual channel feature on your motherboard will probably be.
2 x 4 gigs sticks = 8 Gig DRAM
2 x 8 gig sticks = 16 Gig DRAM
Below is the minimum specification requirement.
Note: MINIMUM Faster CPU better graphics card and More ram is better.
Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 2.66 GHZ / AMD Phenom X3 8750 2.4 GHZ or better
Windows 7 64-Bit / Windows 8 64-Bit
NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 / ATI Radeon HD 5870 or better

The 400W PSU is going to limit your CPU selection to dual-core at best, although you might be able to get away with a higher-end dual-core CPU if your RAM is not ECC and not dual-channel, and you're not running anything serious in terms of a graphics or sound card or a SCSI array.
Given your current setup I'd really look for a 1.6Ghz dual-core Athlon which has a decent amount of KB in its Level 1 and Level 2 cache, but 3MB for its Level 3 cache.
Anything beyond that ballpark of a CPU upgrade is certainly well within the bounds of diminishing returns, and you should look at getting a new PSU, motherboard, and probably RAM (I'm guessing you're using DDR2 RAM currently).
Well about guaranteed your 2 gigs ram is probably DDR II ram which has maximum of four gigs with 64 bit processing and 2 with 32 bit is. So motherboard needs upgrade. 35.00 for good giabit or board with 1000 megs a sec ethernet lan. With ddrIII ram. And upgrade operating system I believe win 8 has max 16 gig ram win 7 uses 8 gis vista and longhorn 64 use 4 and xp normal edition 32 bit uses 2 max. So you about have to run win 7 or 8. Win 7 will become direct x incomparable at some point making us change to win 8. Win8 cost like 300 to 350 and tiger direct.com has good deal of the win 7 pro media center for 75 bucks. So spend 150 on good speed 8 gig ram, 125 bucks for 12 core and at 4 GHz I think. And a board for 35. Reuse all other componets. And you\'ll have a 2500 dollar computer and best on the block.

1. sound driver
2. microphone settings in volume control applet
3. tap test (tap the area around the microphone and see if eg Sound Recorder picks it up)
4. external microphone
If you get to step 4 before you get anything then your problem is one of missing or damaged microphone.
When you upgrade to Vista 64 bit, you also need to update and upgrade all drivers to the 64 bit version. Please update the drivers for your Audigy 4 sound devices and your remote should be back in action.
