My Airplay stops working when my iPhone sleeps. Can I stop this?


Hi there, I haven't had this issue on my iPhone 4 running iOS 5. However, I do click my lock after the video starts playing. Have you tried this? Perhaps locking yourself rather than letting the phone may be an easy fix. Hope this helps! If not please advise which iPhone and os version.

My p4vmm2 rev.8.1 has only 256mb memory card and 128mb video card, my question is what would be the maximum bytes for memory card and video card can i install. Offcourse the compatible hardware..tnx


Looks like the max is 2 x 184-pin DDR DIMM socket support up to 1 GB, which means you can get 2 512MB DDR266/200 2.5V DDR SDRAM chips.

as far as video cards, it will accept any AGP 4x or lower card. You could also put a PCI video card in it, but AGP is better.

Can i upgrade the memory chips so my i tunes movies will play correctly


go to www.crucial.com and click on 'scan my system'. It will tell you if you can increase the RAM.
here are the specs
2 x 184-pin DIMM sockets support two 2.5V DDR SDRAMs (DDR333/266/200)
Maximum memory : 2GB


It may be your video card, this is an old low end motherboard so it will struggle playing HD movies.

When on youtube or ilike videos do not run smoothly


Probably not, your description sounds like buffering. This will be better on some days than others due to internet traffic...

Try this next time: Start the video, and then hit pause until a lot of the video downloads....then play it.

All machines do this when accessing across the internet.. Video files are huge.

Video's on the web skip and stop instead of playing straight through. A 3 min video can take 10 minutes to watch????


While starting to play a YouTube video, press the PAUSE button.
Wait 2 minutes, and press the PLAY button.

If it plays "smoothly", then the only problem is the speed of your Internet connection. For example, if you have a teenage son,
and supply him with only one cheese-burger per day, he will complain that you are "starving" him. If you supply him more quickly, i.e., more burgers per day, he will stop complaining.
Similarly, a faster Internet connection will smooth-out your videos,
because the download is supplying data faster than your video-player is "consuming" the data.

Choppy mac videos and speech on my mac


Your computer was dimensionned for Os 9 and is globaly a little bit weak (sorry) to read full screen videos and 16 bit sounds. on the internet (apple.com and youtube) the videos are over compressed to fit in small connections. But reading .avi or .mp3 necessits hard computing. (sorry for my english)

Videos play slow and choppy but sound is ok


The video is choppy because your computer is not powerful enough to decode the video. The imac g3 was a great computer in its day but it was never designed to run the graphically intensive programs of today. OS 10.4 already places a lot of demands on an older machine. Adding youtube video only exasperates the problem as there simply isn't enough processing power or memory to run the pretty aqua user interface of OS 10.4 and decode video at the same time.

Adding more ram may help (256 MB is not very much these days) but truth be told I don't think you will see much of an improvement given the low power of the G3 processor. Sorry to say it, but if you want to watch flash videos (youtube) with any level of reliability you are going to have to look for a newer machine. You probably could find a used imac g5 for a good price on ebay or maybe treat yourself to a new imac. Rumour has it Apple will be coming out with a new model in the next few days (weeks) so keep on eye out for that if your thinking of buying new.

Graphics card upgrade


Not compatable at all.
DDR SDRAM memory uses 184 Pin Dimms
Double-Data-Rate Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory, better known as DDR SDRAM or DDR RAM for short, is a type of very fast computer memory. DDR RAM is based on the same architecture as SDRAM, but utilizes the clock signal differently to transfer twice the data in the same amount of time.

DDR2 SDRAM uses 240 Pin Dimms.
DDR2 SDRAM improves on DDR SDRAM by using differential signaling and lower voltages to support significant performance advantages over DDR SDRAM.

If your question has to do with buying a video card that is going to use DDR2 ram, that would be a faster graphics card. You can also get video cards with DDR3 ram which again is even faster.
Oddly enough in respect to system memory DDR2 is supposed to be faster than DDR yet the DDR memory cost more than the DDR2. Go figure.

Upgrade of ram


Your board Support 168-pin SDRAM DIMM and 184-pin DDR DIMM (Can't Use DIMM & DDR SDRAM memory Together).
I would run the 184-pin DDR. Supports PC1600/PC2100 DDR DRAM up to 2BG Max. Since you have four memory slots 2x512mb of DDR PC2100 = 1GB would be plenty. You will notice programs load faster & games run smoother. Personally, 2Gb. may help but you will not see the difference. To see a difference it is not all about memory. Mb bus speed, CPU, chipset & speed of video memory all play a part with regards to Pc overall speed. You can download your manual here.: http://www.jetway.com.tw/oldweb/evisn/download/manual/index1.htm
You can download the specs of your board here.:

And below is a link for some good ram.:
