Tell me I am nuts!?!?

Question

PC: Dell XPS Laptop / VistaUltimate 4gb RAM

 

EMC9 ... anytime I try to work with video projects my screen goes nuts. The techs claimed it was a setting that should be assigned to software - not hardware. ... I changed it with zero success.

 

So whenever I want to use EMC9 this is what I see ....

What is the graphics chipset in the laptop? It's possible it's just not man enough to handle the job.

 

Yopu could try going to the chipmakers website and downloading their drivers, also download and install the latest DirectX 9.0c from MS

A picture is worth more than 1000 words! What the heck is that? Looks like the old tv picture tube. I had an old VGA monitor with a bad connection that did something similar.

Stupid question I guess but this only happens with Roxio? Have you tried changing the screen res to see if that helps any? Other than that, I'm lost.

There seem to be problems with the nVidia cards (it's being reported in XP as well). It could be that but check the nVidia website and see if they have newer drivers. They do release updates regularly

Yeah... only when using EMC9 ... like burning a DVD or converting a video.

 

You know the game ... Dell has the initial release for Vista ... nothing updated yet. nVidia's drivers are not posted for this card.

 

 

The nVidia card that I have in my signature is the first nVidia card that I have had in 6 or 7 years. It will be my last. Back to ATI for me.

 

There most definitely is a compatibilityproblem with the EMC software and nVidia cards. I would hope that Roxio and nVidia can find a solution, but I think it is the raunchy nVidia drivers that is the main problem. They have poorer support then Roxio. :(

What these companies offer is not support. They're great at protecting their software and goods from piracy. But, we pay for products that SHOULD work ... and ta da ... they dont.

 

Like I said before, I think it is nVidia, in this case. For my high end card, there has not been an updated driver since November. THAT is real poor support.

 

The old ATI 9800 Pro, in my backup computer, has no problems with EMC 9. And, ATI updates the drivers every month. I don't update the card though. It works well, and I am not about to mess up what isn't broken.
