Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

When I want to watch something whether it be Cable, a movie, or video games the screen only stays clear for 4 seconds then it scrambles. Not only that, jumps from being scrambled to going to "no signal." Sound works fine, its just the picture. I've tried all the inputs and outputs. Nothing seems to work.

You have to go into the settings of the video card and change the "signal" from the one you are using now, this could be RGB, S-Video, Composite, Digital or Analogue, flick through these settings until you find the correct signal

kind regards

Turn Your iPod Into a Full Screen Television Set

Yes! It is possible! Hard to believe but then what is not technologically possible anymore these days?
The iPod is not just a music gadget anymore. It is a game, video, and personal diary all rolled into one. The latest product of Apple is the video iPod. How did they come up with this incredible concept?
The iPod screen is small, about 2.5 inches. Of course, that is because it is a tiny handheld audio device. It was not meant to be heavy or big. That would defeat the purpose. Combine that with the obvious that people like watching movies on the big screen. In fact, the bigger, the better, right? This is the next advanced technology after the connection adapter that links your iPod with your computer and your television. You would not even need the actual television to watch your movie!
How do you do this? How do you get to have an iPod that also works as a mobile television?
To do this, you would need to buy Micro Optical Goggles. This is something you can wear like spectacles, or over your glasses or contact lens. A cable will link the goggles to the port of the iPod headset. They are quite light, about 70 g only, and has a belt clip to hold the iPod. The set runs on regular triple A batteries.
Through a set of lenses, these Micro Optic Goggles will send the images from two LCDs to your eyes so you can view the video on what would appear to be a 27-inch television screen.
For those of you on the go, how perfect would it be to be able to travel around, work on research, and watch relaxing movies in your free time?
Sounds like the perfect scenario, right? Unfortunately, if you are working on a budget, you might have to plan out your purchase since this Micro Optic Goggles can cost quite a bundle. It retails for about $269 at the moment. That is the present price but as we all know, as soon as the demand settles down and other similar devices start popping up, the price will also decrease. What is more, the battery pack might even be changed to affect the weight of the goggles and make them lighter.
The race is on and iPod has got the heads up on this one. If you can afford to buy these goggles, you will be the life of any get-together and you get to enjoy your iPod even more. Now that you know about these great microvision, fullscreen goggles, click the link below to find out more.
If you have a video iPod, click the link to find out how you can get inexpensive microvision goggles that allow you to watch fullscreen videos with stereo sound.

Audio and video get out of sync

What you are doing requires a lot of resources. A lot of RAM memory, a fast processor, plenty of space on your hard drive. If nothing else has changed you probably need to clear space from Temp files, un-necessary software and old emails! After a clear out, give it a Defrag and try again.

Video Scrambles After Loading Screens

Sometimes things like this are much simpler than they seem, but since the problem appears so severe, it freaks you out. I'm assuming since you didn't state it that you haven't tried many if any fixes at all. So I will start with one of the most basic ones.

First try checking the settings on the video options for your video card... "display options" or the geforce console.. if you are using anti aliasing... what setting is it on? 2x? 3x? Other than that, try using the lowest video settings for the game and see if it still does the same distortions/freezing. if not, your settings may have just been too high, gradulally ease them up to the highest setting you can without it having problems during loading.

If none of that works.. try the following options.

1. Try re-installing the games themselves.
2. Try rolling back your video driver.
3. Try updating your video driver to the newest possible version.

Mental problem/insufficiant tec knowledge

Video cards are definitely more for people who are into multimedia and video gaming.

The main reason to upgrade your video card is to take the graphical work that the computer does away from your main processor so it can do other things. Video cards are made up of two things, a processor and memory. So say you are watching a movie on your computer, and you dont have a seperate video card processor or video memory on your motherboard. When you play that movie, all the multimedia information must be processed through your processor and the data must be stored in your memory (RAM). This takes away from other things that your computer could be doing for you while you watch your movie. So by having this extra video card, you are able to run your multimedia information (such as games, pictures, or anything else that you see on the screen) much faster while the computer can focus on other things like running your word processor or your web browsing.

A more technical explination and history can be found here...

I hope this helped.
