Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My Mac is having trouble playing online videos (like you tube)

I have a powerpc with 4.5 gigs of ram and a 500 gig hardrive. recently, when i try to watch videos online, anything from you tube to just random clips, the videos stop about every two seconds, and there is no sound at all. this does not make any since, because they buffer to 100 percent, but still do not play. the only way to make them play is to fast forward a little, but then they will stop again after about 2 seconds.
my computer also has a slow internet speed.
what could be my problem?? it never used to do this!

Its not your computer. its the browser you are using. Safari has a issue right now that if you try to play any movie or any game that is using flash which youtube is flash, it won't play or is skippy. So to watch your clips you should use Firefox, Mozilla, Opera . I use firefox and all the movies in flash or shockwave is viewable but with safari you can't. And you can try to install flash again and again it won't help, because safari's developers still forget to allow flash to update on the browser. So since they neglect to fix it in all their updates i just refuse to use it and use firefox. Also you might want to dump your cache for the browser you use as well. becuase buffer means nothing if your cache is full.

and the internet speed usually is a sign that your browser's cache is full. and that you need to delete or dump or clean out the cache.

Hi my name is sean and i have this exact board and i have 4 gigs installed ram and the bios is only detecting 3 gigs. I dont have a memory remapping featuer in the bios but the board does support 4 gigs...


Have a look at the BIOS settings, the built-in video card may be grabbing 1Gb for video RAM. The video card uses shared RAM (part of the main RAM module/s). You can change the video RAM allocation in the BIOS.

No output


Make sure you have your speakers connected to the main output. Also, in the "Universal Control" "Mixer" window, make sure that at least one of the mixes are assigner to "Mo", which stands for main output.

Problems with Foxconn 6100K8MA-RS Motherboard memory upgrade


This is an oldtime POST code memory error. Likely that ram is either installed wrong, bad RAM or the mobo doesn't like one of the memory sticks.

See http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm.

You must count the beeps.

Hi,

Technically you can copy all the data from one to another hdd but not the operating system

You have to install your operating system (windows, linux or MAC) on your new 500gig hdd and then copy your data from 60gig hdd.

Switch sticks around in various combinations (2 gig in slot one, 1 gig in slot two, switch, try other stick, etc) and see if it is the memory or the motherboard.
