Question about Acer Aspire T310 PC Desktop
Hi there, i recently got a acerT310 off a mate to build a media center, i have had a few dramas with it but it seems to be coming along...it has xp installed, 256ram, 40gig hard drive intel celeron 2.6ghz, a 250watt power supply and on board video. Last night i finally got it to run ok but when i run a movie it is very notchy, stops and pauses alot. Would this be a ram issue or video? I am trying to do it on the cheap as i already have a fast gaming cpu. What else should i consider when building this box?
Are the video card drivers installed? depending on which card it has its either a Ati card, sis or Nvidia. you can get the drivers for it from here
That is most likely it - the cpu is enought to run video. I have 512Mb on my old laptop and it plays video perfectly I think your going to upgrade this ones memory so it wont be a problem.
Cpu is good enought to play dvd and video.
Video card if no drivers are installed then it will be very sluggish and poor quality. if even after the right drivers are installed depending on what brand and model card it is, it may be too slow or the issue maybe in codec and media player.
try installing FFDSHOW into the computer and see if it improves (it wont help if the drivers aren't installed for the video card so make sure that is solved first) Download ffdshow latest here http://www.free-codecs.com/download_soft.php?d=4786&s=50 (for other users: its the latest version at the time of posting on may 18. check google for new version)
if you need to find out what video card the computer has you can use a program like http://majorgeeks.com/download4181.html <- everest home free.
