Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook
Cds play good. dvds and video games are choppy. When I start up a video game the intro is choppy. When stopped and restarted it is clear all the way up to where it was stopped then goes back to being hard to see and hear. Is this a dvd rw drive issue or maybe a software problem?
Unfortunately your video card memory is probably lacking. And/or your settings are set too high for your processor to handle. Right click on your desktop, goto properties, goto settings, and select for best perfomance then apply.
CD's play simple audio files. DVD's and games play large video files and large audio files that are choppy on older systems. you may need to upgrade your memory. Make sure you delete all you dont use, run disk cleanup. REstart. Run, disk defrag, Restart.
A good test is goto : www.belarc.com or belarcadvisor.com
They will tell you if yoursystem is uptodate.
You may just be running a older processor?
Let me konw,
