Slow and choppy karaoke video from my laptop

I'm running an older Dell Inspiron 1100 with 512 MB RAM I think and when I play my karaoke application the video runs late (behind the cues etc). Do you think I could purchase a PCMCIA video card that would help run the video and push it out to a TV?

Orginally your unit comes with 256MB of RAM wit a shared 64MB of VGA. If you haven't added any RAM yet, then I suggest upgrade it by adding another 512MB or 1 GB of DDR PC2700.


Hope this helps.
If it does please vote. Thanks!

I have the Flip UltraHD 3 Mod: U32120 and all of my videos are extremely choppy when I view them on my laptop. I'm using a Dell Inspiron duo with Windows 7. I have viewed the videos with Picasa 3 as well...


Oh, this is easy. It's your laptops video card processing the video format slowly. Try converting to something like WMV. This happens a lot with uncompressed video files. This problem is worse on laptops than desktops.

Hi, I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 with 2 GB of RAM and 8 MB video m


The simple answer is you can't upgrade as the video and sound are on the same "card" which is built in to the mother board.

Laptop with Choppy Video


First of all you're running vista, which is a major no-no. Since your RAM is only 2 gigs, vista will take up about 1.3-1.5 gigs of ram, depending on which version you have.As for the video card i really do not see a problem. Try updating your drivers, i would suggest Driver Genius Professional Edition, as for free editions google them. Hope this helps. I'm not as good at laptops, so bare with me.

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.

Not enough video memory


The Inspiron 4100 has a 16MB video card built in to the motherboard. It is not upgradable. It appears that the system doesn't meet the minimum requirements for the program, so you'll have to get a more powerful system to run that application. sorry =(

Choppy sound and video on laptop


Unfortunately your video card memory is probably lacking. And/or your settings are set too high for your processor to handle. Right click on your desktop, goto properties, goto settings, and select for best perfomance then apply.

CD's play simple audio files. DVD's and games play large video files and large audio files that are choppy on older systems. you may need to upgrade your memory. Make sure you delete all you dont use, run disk cleanup. REstart. Run, disk defrag, Restart.

A good test is goto : www.belarc.com or belarcadvisor.com

They will tell you if yoursystem is uptodate.

Good luck!

You may just be running a older processor?

Inspiron 1150 Slow startup, slow printing, unable to run 2 programs at once


What Operating System do you run? If it is Windows XP SP2 (Home Edition or professional), here are some things you can do to speed up your system. 1st you should remove all programs that are not required from the start menu. Start > Run > Msconfig > startup tab. Unselect all that are not necessary. Also Right click on my computer > properties > Advanced > Performance settings > Adjust for best performance. This should speed things up a little. I would recommend atleast 512 MB of memory to run Windows XP and its applications decently. You should consider an upgrade.
