Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Installed a Foxconn A74mx-k Mobo with new Amd X2 4850e and 4 GB of Corsair DDR2 (800) running a 7200 RPM IDE HDD and Ide DVD player. Problems: My 3-d Fireplace screen saver is choppy, DVD movies play for 5 minutes then freeze, speaker sound output is way low (unamplified spkrs) and microphone input is very negligible when using skype. I did a fresh XP pro install including the long NTFS formatting, reloaded all the drivers and my programs and although performance did seem to improve, my computer isn't running as well as when I had my Sempron 2600 and 1GB DDR installed (especially video related applications). I have the on board video in the Bios set on automatic as opposed to a set 64, 128 or 256 MB. Unbelievable that an upgrade is turning out to be a down grade. any suggestions? Thank you.

    Hello Smithbrother,

    Thank you for trying to reply. Look at the bottom part of page 29 of the manual
    and there will be: “Internal graphics configuration”. My settings are:


    UMA Buffer size: is now 64, screensaver running more
    smoothly.


    GFX engine clock is: 400




    I take this to be the shared memory for the onboard graphics
    chips??????



    Here is specs link from Foxconn website: (note “VGA on chip”)





    http://www.foxconnchannel.com/product/Mo...





    Here is link to Newegg specs: Note ATI Radeon HD 2100
    graphics “Onboard”:




    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...

    You may have to cut and paste these.
    Anyway, by designating the memory to 64 instead of "auto" the screen saver is running how it should. I think the auto mode was trying to minimize memory usage (continually adjusting) choking off the screen saver operation somewhat.

    Now I am battling getting my Media Player 11 to play DVD's. I've installed klmcodec442 (lite package) and it seems to be working fine now.

    Still not happy with the Realtek HD sound volume being so low that amplified speakers are necessary and I haven't tested the Microphone since complete re-install but there is a lot of chatter on the internet about this problem.

    Anyway, any insight into anything would be greatly appreciated. I've built several computers (simple ones) but don't claim to be an expert.

    Regards,
    Steve

    I am guessing that you have installed the HD codec from the MB disk.
    Since that isn't working maybe try doenloading the one from Realtek


    Also the reason others nmay not be answering is because your problem is listed under "Projection TV"

    I am running a dual core AMD Foxconn  mother board myself,though a different model. I downloaded your MB manual and it shows no "on board video" It shows a PCIe slot. Her si the website, maybe I errored?

There is a utility that comes with your motherboard on the CD that will allow you to control all aspects of your sound....it's HD 5.1 and works great on the same mobo I have.
You have installed XP, so you're open to doing a little "tinkering".
I would begin by resetting your bios, as you may have inadvertantly changed some settings there that are causing problems.  You can find instructions on how to do this in the manual.  It's simple though, unplug the power cord, remove the battery from mobo and move the little blue jumper over to the left two prongs and leave it there for about 10 seconds, then move the jumper back, put the battery back in, plug the power in and boot.  It will tell you at boot that the cmos time is bad etc., just hit F2 to load default settings and see how that runs.... then you can begin making minor tweaks in the BIOS if needed, but you probably won't have to.
After resetting the bios, boot into windows and then insert the disk that came with your motherboard and re-install all of the drivers and utilities(if desired).
Of course your mobo has integrated graphics, I don't know what the other fellow is talking about. That board has the 740g (which is basically the 790g) chipset, DVI and VGA out, and is a killer integrated graphics card for the money.
Also, are you running XP 32 or 64 bit?  32 bit will have problems recognizing your 4GB of RAM, and I'm not sure but may even cause problems accessing the memory....it's possible that your RAM is not running at full speed...and there are many other factors and variables that could be causing your problem.
For now, try the BIOS reset and re-install drivers (for mobo on CD), and see if that fixes the problem.  If not, I will help you figure it out, as that is a very good mobo, even for the price.

Can this take a 7200 RPM HDD?


The only compatibility issue for a hard drive with your laptop is the interface, whether it's IDE/PATA or SATA. Seeing as it's an old laptop, it's probably IDE, and I don't think you'll find many 7200 RPM laptop IDE hard drives. All the 7200 RPM laptop hard drives I know are SATA. So, probably not. If you need more help with your laptop repair, contact me through my website.

Ecs 6100sm-m mobo connections


you have a few options

1) buy a sata harddrive (faster then ide), use the ide for the second harddrive (backup) and cd/dvd rom

2) buy a sata cd/dvd rom use the ide on both harddrives (1 set to slave)

3) depends on your budget, buy a sata drive + sata cd/dvd rom so your main drive is on sata (faster than ide) then you only have your second drive as your backup drive on ide.

i had the same problem when i rebuilt mine, i went for the seperate harddrive and cd/dvd rom and my 320 gb ide as my backup drive

sorry to jump on this post aswell, see what others think

New hard drive choices


Hello, Bob!

Seeing as I am a 6 year veteran of Dell Tech Support, I should be able to help you out, no problem.

One thing that I would like to let you know is this: according to Dell Support Policy, you ARE allowed to put a non-Dell-branded hard drive in your computer. However, if Dell Support deams that this non-Dell hdd has caused another Dell component to fail, they will not replace the defective product. BUT, since it is HIGHLY unlikely that a non-Dell hdd would actually cause any other failure, feel free to purchase a non-Dell hdd. (I often times suggested that customers take this route because unless you're purchasing a refurbished Dell product, you're only paying for the Dell name.)

Anywho...

There really are no limitations to what size hdd you can install in your computer. Of course, a larger hdd will take more time to process information (Basically, there's more surface area to scan when your computer is searching for a specific piece of information.). Your main thing will be determining if you have an IDE hdd or a SATA hdd.

The Dell Tech website CAN be your friend (support.dell.com). From there, you can view original configuration and even available upgrades simply by entering your service tag (Usually found toward the back of your computer, on a black sticker with white text. It should list your service tag, an alpha-numeric value, and express service code, an all-numeric value).

If I were in your position, I would most likely not go over a 160g or 200g hard drive... simply to keep decent performance.

Hope I helped!
