Given these specs, this computer should be able to handle basic applications such as video or music.

For the lagging: there is most likely a software problem, not hardware. In other words: your computer is physically fine, it's what's on your computer that's the problem. This could be because of too many programs, viruses, etc.

This is what I would do:
1. Save all of your data on this computer to a flash drive, cd, or other computer.
2. Install a fresh copy if Windows XP by using the recovery disks that came with your computer.
3. Install new drivers for your motherboard. They are located HERE (download only the drivers that go with your operating system, which is Windows XP in this case).
4. Transfer your old data back on to your cleaned computer. Do yourself a favor and only transfer the data that you actually need. If this is truly a school computer, keep it that way.

Don't put money into this computer, especially if you are planning to buy a new complete system. A video card on this system just wouldn't make sense, it would be like dressing up a pig. Sorry, bad analogy. In other words, if all the components are old and it has an awesome video card, the video card won't be able to perform at its full potential. It'd be pointless.

The monitor isn't the problem. Arguably, monitors never cause lagging problems.

To get the optimum performance from your computer, do the following steps:-

1. re-install windows
2. use appropriate drivers
3. use integrated video card
4. use less application software (only needed softwares)
5. keep the computer virus free

    dear, upgradation of RAM and use of fast harddisk might boost the performance, but in my opinion use it, as it is, as you are planning to buy a new one.

I see you are having issues with drivers for your Audio on your BIOSTAR motherboard.

See this link for the Drivers, make sure you select the one specific to the windows installed on your system.

If you already tried that try VINYL Audio Driver - Link

M7vig 400 pro verison 1.0 what kind of audio & video drives can i use?


You can download drivers from Biostar here. (This is the page for M7VIG 400. The page for M7VIG PRO lists the same drivers.) They list which operating systems are supported for each device.

I see your question asks "what kind of ... drives". If you didn't mean "drivers" and I've misunderstood your question, please post a follow-up with more information and I'll try to help further.

I NEED TO MY FIX COMPUTER BEFORE SCHOOL STARTS PLEASE HELP.


can't help you with the parts... but download a program called spybot s&d and install it... update it then scan... it will find spyware on your computer which would slow it down... ccleaner is another program to get which will allow you to remove junk files from your computer... then defrag it.... should help the performance somewhat

Oh and what is wrong with the laptop... or start another question for it
