Can't play divx or xvid media

Hi All I got eMachines laptop D620 It got Athlon proc at 1.6Ghz with 1Gb of ram and there is ATI x1200 graphic card inside. I removed pre-installed Vista and installed Win XP sp3 (I have MSDN licence). Everything works smoothly except video - I can't watch any movied in Divx or Xvid - last one don't start to show output and with Divx there is a gap between video and sound and video is slowed down. I tried different players including VLC, Divx player, media player classic and Subedit - all behave the same. I installed latest drivers for graphic card and re-installed directx and codecs as well - no joy. As far I remember under Vista it was working fine (I'm not my primary pc to use on daily bases). Any one have any idea what to do ???? Tom

    I tried that one before
    I installed and re-installed codec's
    I just noticed something else - when I play video on any player cpu utilization is on 100% all the time - when I close window with move it goes back to almost 0%.
    In he same time in safe mode when I played movie using VLC usage was on 20-40% only.
    I have feeling that problem is somewhere else - when I tried to copy 700 Mb file on pen drive it show me info that it will take up to 120 minutes.
    In the same time the same pen drive is extremly fast on my dell laptop .
    To answer a question - it it USB 2.0 - drivers are installed on eMachines and it don't pop up with info that "this device might work faster" as normally if You connect usb 2.0 pen drive to old usb's.

    Tom

    still have no idea

    have you tried to load the ATI driver directly from them and not from the laptops website?

Could be a codec problem
Use these two, one for video and one for audio and see if you have the same problems, these are the best codecs, don't use those all in 1 packs as they are generally out of date of full of ****.

    as for the USB thing, try formatting to NTFS and see if it still takes a long time. But first you need to change a setting - Goto Device Manager, under View select Show Hidden Devices, Expand Disk Drives, right click the entry for your USB drive and select Properties, under the Policies tab select Optimize for Performance, OK and reformat the usb drive to NTFS

A suitable graphics card will help your computer system display better graphics. You will need a graphics card and maybe you could do with at least 1GB of RAM.

Take care!

Can I upgrade the graphics card on my Toshiba Satellite A215-4767 Laptop from the ATI X1200?


Hi, usually, laptops integrate their gpus with the motherboard. If it is a modular gpu, your best bet would be to salvage the upgraded gpu from the same series/brand laptop. But as I recall, the x1200 is an integrated graphics solution (eg x200, x1200, HD3200, etcc...)

I just wanna kno if my GTA4 is gonna work smooth in full grafics with this card..


Well without knowing the card, i can tell you this.
I have a 8800gt 512mb, 4gb's ram and a 3ghz c2d e6600 and i get an average 42fps using the in game benchmark. It depends really what resolution you want to play at. I play at 1440 x 900. You would need at least a nvidia 8600gts or Ati equivalant card to play the game. Also a core 2 duo is definately needed to play this game smoothly- better yet if you have a core 2 quad. If you are using a laptop then I could almost certainly guess that it wont work. If you have a pc using intel graphics then it wont work either.

More Ram for graphics


You can share the RAM for VGA max of 256 only for some motherboards. On BIOS select the AUTO instead of selecting 128MB share memory.

I got a Geforce FX 5500! i want to know... ''Shader 3''?


Don't think you can with that video card.

  1. Operating system: Windows XP/ Vista
  2. Processor: Intel Pentium 4 or AMD Athlon X2
  3. Memory: 1GB RAM (2GB for Vista)
  4. Free disk space: 10GB
  5. Video card: Shader Model 3.0 and 256MB RAM (nVidia GeForce 6800 GT/ATI Radeon X1600)
  6. Sound card: DirectX 9.0c compatible
The Geforce 5500 does not support Shader Model 3.0
You would have to get atleast a Geforce 6 Series for that Shader model.

As far as I am aware, you can not upgrade the graphics in a laptop unless that laptop is equipped with an MXM type slot for graphics.
