I have a compaq presario c700 running windows vista. On my previous laptop I was able to record successfully using Audacity. Now, however, recordings are very poor - the sound comes and goes, and is of...


Stuart, make sure have the System requirements Here are the recommended memory (MB or GB of RAM) and processor speed (GHz) requirements for using Audacity with different versions of Vista:

Version Recommended RAM/
processor speed Minimum RAM/
processor speed Vista Home Basic 2 GB / 1 GHz 512 MB / 1 GHz All other Vista versions 4 GB / 2 GHz 1 GB / 1 GHz
Note that the minimum system requirements as defined above (i.e. those that allow the operating system to run, ignoring what is required to run applications) are much greater than for Windows XP. If your computer does not significantly exceed these minimum requirements then you may have problems doing more intensive tasks in Audacity such as recording for long periods or editing a large number of long tracks, or may need to close other programs and processes before you can do so. Please be aware that the cheapest "deals" for new Vista machines may well only include the Vista Home Basic Edition and system specifications little in excess of the Vista minimum requirements.
Other things being equal, 64-bit versions of Vista will require more RAM than 32-bit versions. While some users report Audacity runs fine on 64-bit Vista with 2 GB RAM, this depends on the number of tracks being worked with and the number of other programs and services running on the computer. Memory is now very inexpensive. The general recommendation for 64-bit Vista is to install a minimum of 4 GB RAM - and for very best performance, install the maximum RAM that your motherboard supports.

If you meet the min system requirements. Uninstall your sound card drives and try the beta version for Windows Vista.

Game moves too slow


There can be three reasons

1. The game requirements does not match your laptop requirements.

OR

2. There are lots of temp files/junk on the laptop which slows it down

OR

3. There is something running while you are playing such as virus scan, logged in your MSN/yahoo/AIM

Sims 3 keeps crashing


Maybe you have enough video memory, but the way your video card processes all the graphics is less than enough to what SIMS 3 requires.

Please take a look at the sims 3 requirements and read the review about your laptop below.

EA has released the minimum system requirements for The Sims 3, which is out on February 20.

The specs, which emerged on site Gaming Today,show both desktop and laptop minimum requirements, though it should bestressed that the game probably won't run like butter on these rigs.

See the specs below:

PC / Desktop
XP (Service Pack 2)
Pentium IV 2.0 GHz / Athlon XP 2000+
1 GB Memory
Graphics
GeForce FX 5900 / Radeon 9500
Graphics Ram
128 MB

Vista (Service Pack 1)
Pentium IV 2.4 GHz / Athlon XP 2400+
1.5 GB Memory
GeForce FX 5900 / Radeon 9500
128 MB Graphics RAM


Laptop
XP (Service Pack 2)
Processor Pentium IV 2.4 GHz / Athlon XP 2400+
1.5 GB Memory
GeForce Go 6200 / Radeon mobile 9600
128 MB Graphics RAM

Vista (Service Pack 1)
Pentium IV 2.4 GHz / Athlon XP 2400+
2.0 GB Memory
GeForce Go 6200 / Radeon mobile 9600
128 MB Graphics RAM


This is Situation Publishing Ltd. review:

With the advent of Intel's Core 2 Duo processors we're at lastbeginning to see the kind of power and portability that was beingclaimed, somewhat optimistically, back in the early days of notebookcomputing. Not one to miss out, Dell has rolled out its Core 2 Duobased Inspiron 6400...The 6400, like so much of the Dell range, comes in a variety ofuser-defined guises so bear this in mind when it comes to theperformance numbers and features I'll be making reference to. Indeed,in the time we've had the notebook, a Dell special offer has upped thememory to 2GB from the two 512MB modules of DDR 2 SDRAM featured in ourversion.

Our particular model also came equipped with Intel's impressive newmobile Core 2 Duo processor, the T7200, which ticks along at 2.0GHz offa 667MHz frontside bus. 4MB of shared L2 cache helps speed things alongtoo. Like the entire mobile range of Core 2 Duo processors it operatesat between 1.0375V and 1.3V and runs comparatively cool for its speed.
Furthermore, our test unit arrived with an ATI Mobility Radeon X1400graphics chip and not the X1300 currently offered on Dell's website asstandard for all but the most basic version of the 6400. The X1400upgrade will set you back around £47 and is probably worth the extramoney seeing as the X1300 combined with the 15.4in WSXGA+ screen willnot be compatible with Windows Vista. In addition all models - again,except the basic one - now come equipped with an 8x dual-layer DVD°R/RWdrive. The hard disk is a Samsung 120GB SATA unit which should fend offobsolescence over the life of the notebook

VerdictWith a base price - for the T7200 Core 2 Duo - of £789 inc. VAT andshipping, the Inspiron 6400 is an excellent and affordable route intothe Core 2 Duo world. It has all the credentials to be a dependablemultimedia companion with its great screen, comprehensive connectivityand decent processing power. But be aware it's neither exciting to lookat nor to game on!


Best of luck

Problem regarding installation pack


I do not quite understand your configuration, but 512 MB RAM is certainly not enough to run Vista Ultimate in any productive way.

See http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/get/system-requirements.aspx for minimum requirements.

these requirements are bare minimum, you will not enjoy Vista with such minimal configurations

Looking for a recommend portable laptop that fits the required computer features or better. Needs great speed and memory. I am a cabinet designer. Thank you for your help!


You likely can get a better deal on the internet than BestBuy, and free shipping may be available, and you will pay no sales tax if you purchase out-of state (they will inform you). To find out what the computer requirements of the program you desire to use, try to find the "minimum requirements" which will be somewhere in your installation CD, but really should be on the box it came in. If not on the box, it should be in the instruction manual. A word of warning: "minimal" does not mean "optimal". Optimal means that you will be able to run the program without it being so slow that you want to tear your hair out. Design programs, I would assume, require decent graphics. A good graphics card is cheap in a desktop, but may be pricier in a laptop. However, the rage for great graphics capabilities for kids whose life consists of videogames has provided us with remarkably inexpensive laptops with great graphics capabilities. The prices keep falling: what was 1600 a year ago can now be found for $650. Since you do not require all the glop which comes with Vista, (the product still isn't ready for non-geeks, and requires enormous amounts of memory and a good Dual-core processor, I would highly recommend getting XP as your operating system, or else a Mac, which most graphics freaks prefer. Unfortunately, it's very hard to get a new laptop with XP. SO. What does the program say are its minimal requirements?

Toshiba


If you upgraded from XP to Vista and didn't exceed the minimum system requirements for Vista, then that is why your laptop is "struggling to work". You should have done a compatibility check before the upgrade to see what upgrades you might have needed to install Vista, such as RAM (usually adding the maximum amount of RAM that your MotherBoard will accept/recognize will get you going with Vista. Otherwise to get your laptop back to speed you can reinstall XP (XP runs on a lot less resources than Vista requires). You mention a graphics card, and I can't imagine one that would require you to upgrade to Vista yet, though I could be wrong.
Good Luck.
