Solution to MyDVD Render Menu Hang For Vista and Intel 945 video chipset


TimHitchings

Question

Below is a solution if anyone else has an acer laptop running vista with an Intel 945 video chipset and encounters problems with using MyDVD and hanging during menu rendering.

Using the default dvd menu which contains menu buttons that contain videos of your content the program would hang when rendering.

The solution was to upgrade to the latest Intel driver for Vista from the Intel website.

did my method not work for you?

Sorry for not getting back sooner. Your suggestion works just as well, another way to get something done.

I had suggested the Sandra program because it provides a lot of information that is logically related, and in (what I feel) is a more friendly format, and another benefit to Sandra is the diagnostic tools. Maybe overkill for Jame's question, but at least he had choices.

Can you tell an ignorant user like myself a simple way to check what chipset they have?

Usually the manufacturer includes this in the Technical Specs of the product, but I belioeve the best way to find out all of particulars (and more) about your PC/Laptop is to use the SiSoftware Sandra tool which you can download from WWW.Download.com. Hope this helps.

Never been interested in downloading more crap to answer a simple question. All these dolittle utilities are often the source of other problems on a PC.

 

I am looking in term of what an average user can extract directly from their PC followed by the specific web page link for the fix.

 

Yeah, I hear ya - More downloads never is a favorite. I was just giving you a tried and true method that has been around for a long time, and is highly recommeded by PC Magazine, et al. That being said, I believe you can log on to Dell's website, and key in the user code that's on the back of your laptop and it will give you the configuration of your machine.

I mentioned the term user code, but I believe in Dell's case it's called the Service Code.
