Question about Cpi (C1731) Burner

Dell latitude cpi-A series

I have an old but perfectly servicable latitude A-Series laptop currently running XP. I recently replaced the original cd player with a dvd/cd player. Problem appears that the processor, an intel pentium II running at 297mhz does not seem to be fast enough to play DVD's correctly. The sound is perfect but the picture is very jerky. Looking at the system performance, it is showing the cpu running at 100%. Is there anyway of increasing the processor speed or replacing it with one running at 400Mhz. I have tried using alternative media drivers in the hope of finding a more efficient one but no luck. I would certainly appreciate any assistance.

Your computer is only a 400 Mhz and your RAM is probably very low.
Download ISO of GeeXbox Linux. Google it. Make sure to burn it as an "image" on a Data CD at 4X speed (check Sonic, Nero or whatever burner you have before attempting it). Change instructions in the BIOS (go into set-up with F2) to boot from CD/DVD ROM first. Put your burned CD of GeeXbox and start your computer. It will load entirely into memory and eject the CD. Put your movie in it and enjoy.

Troubleshoot dell e5500

Depending upon your operating system, try reducing your resolution to something lower. If your resolution is currently at 1920 x 1600, reduce it down to 1280 x 1024. This should allow you back up & regroup.

On a blank portion of your screen, <Right Click> your mouse, choose "Properties" for Windows XP or "Screen Resolution" for Windows 7, for Windows XP go to the last tab, Find the Resolution slider or drop down menu and choose a lower resolution than the one you are currently using.

If your laptop is connected to an external monitor, use the monitor menu buttons to recenter and shrink the image back to factory settings.

I hate neighbors! I had given my laptop to the boy livin next door and he returned it with the shift key missing. I will have to buy a new keyboard now &#61516;

Hi james,
sorry to hear that your kindness to another has been let down .
to replace the keys or the whole keyboard is not too big a job .
try searching on ebay for a replace keyboard ( in the uk around 20 pounds ) or buy a used one and change the key top
