Is this a video driver issue? Device Mgr/Display Adaptor shows NVIDIA RIVA TNY (Sony), driver version 1.4.6.1, dated 8/8/2001. Am not sure how to update driver, if that is problem. Appreciate your inputs...

 

 

Go to the Dispay Adapter manufacturers web site.

Sony lists 4 models with that RX 550 designation so I was not able to determine if there are new drivers for your computer. Go Here and type in your full model number in the lower right side and you will get to a page with updates to your equipment. -Edit - the other types are laptops so I believe that this is the correct page. I believe that that model came with a 1.5 and a 1.8 CPU. If you have the 1.5, you may have problems with video work since it will be slow. Update the drivers (if any updates are available) and do everything possible to get that computer to best performance (not best appearance). You will need to get rid of any old software you have on your computer and that you don't use, make sure you run anti-spyware frequently, Defrag that hard drive often, set virtual memory to 1 1/2 times your actual, and anything else you can do to get that to run clean and fast.

 

If you have the 1.5 CPU, your computer does not meet the minimum requirements for some video work. It may work but it will be painfully slow. The minimums are:

For burning music and data discs: 500 MHz Intel® Pentium III or equivalent; 128 MB RAM

<LI>For DVD, slide show or video authoring:1.2 GHz Intel® Pentium III or equivalent; 256 MB RAM

<LI>For real-time MPEG-2 capture and burning 1.6 GHz Intel® Pentium 4 or equivalent

 

If you bought V8 recently, see if you can take it back and get V7 or 7.5 as a replacement. Both of those have almost the same functions but will run on your computer much better.

 

All of the above is based on you having the 1.5 GHz processor; if you have the 1.8 or higher, it will work better but much slower than maybe you want.

 

If you just installed V8, the program catalogs your files and takes up a lot of CPU time doing it. Shut it down or change the setting in Media Manager to watch only certain folders.

Many thanks for straightforward suggestion. Followed your link to Sony Vaio RX550, downloaded updated NVIDIA software, and mouse now works like a charm in EMC8 applications...

Great news :) Now if only other people who we suggest this "fix" to would quit saying that is what we always blame problems on. Thanks for posting that you found an answer.
