I have the latest version of Direct X and the most recent version of the driver for my video card...still no go. Will upgrading my video card be the best bet (more recent drivers?) What would you suggest?

 

Get an AGP video card, with a minimum of 128 MB onboard memory. That will help, no matter what.

 

If you are going to be doing any video editing, that E-machine is going to run really slow. Also, if you can swing it, get a DVD burner. The drive that you have will burn to CD's, but it will only read DVD's. It won't burn to them.

I agree with Bruce. The video card is most important for your current project. If on a budget, I would consider more memory second and hard drive third. More memory would definitely make things faster. I have an Athlon 3000+. When I upgraded from 512MB to 1gig, I saw a huge difference.

Yes, it is probably a difficulty with your video card/chips. Update the drivers for the equipment you have. Is everything slightly off center or just the images and videos? Do you have an on-board chip or a actual video card? Make sure that you have the latest version of DirectX version 9© dated Feb 2006. What resolution are you using on your monitor?

 

It really does help if you post information on your computer. Add the computer information to your signature so you don't have to keep typing it every time someone asks. Us the :My Controls" link at the top of the page.

 

When I put together a production, my photos and video are off center. Any ideas?

Just the images and video are off center. Thanks for the reply.

I just checked the S3 website and the integrated ProSavage line is no longer supported with updated drivers. You can check to see if you do have the last ones that are posted there.

 

Almost make sure you have the lastest DirectX. Get it here

 

If neither fixes the problem, then you may want to purchase an AGP card since you have an empty slot. I've seen some really nice ones for under $50 on sale lately.

 

Also for future upgrades, you may want to consider more memory. WinXP barely runs in 256MB. 512MB should be minimum. More if you can afford it. You can get by with 60gig hard drive, but even those have come down in price too. CompUSA just had a huge sale with a 200gig hard drive for only $29.99 after rebates.

 

These aren't 'needed' for EMC, but both would certainly speed up things. The memory would be more important first.
