Doing System Recovery/trying Emc10 Install Again


2weeksintoit

Question

My first attempt at using Easy Media Creator 10 started with an installation on my PC with Windows XP. I was able to fudge things with tips from these discussion boards to create a few productions and DVD copies, but I realized I really needed more memory to do video editing. I was unable to free up space on my hard drive. I manually deleted several programs and files but space didn't seem to ever get freed up. The directx 9 thing was a mess because not knowing what I was downloading, I downloaded one of the SDK kits which must have been huge and I don't know if I was able to ever get it off. I plan on wiping this computer clean and starting over with it. But in the meantime, I went out and got an HP Pavilion desktop with 500GB hard drive and Windows Vista. I started it up and loaded Easy Media Creator 10 and was able to use it somewhat but as I added other things like my printer, palm treo software and Microsoft Office 2007 things went wrong and the EMC10 hasn't worked properly. I have gone throught the uninstallation including the regedit and then tried reinstalling. I tried installing the directx9 thing and it won't download. Right now I have given up and am doing a system recovery to the factory settings. What can I do from scratch with basically a new computer out of the box running Vista to get this thing to work? ANYBODY PLEASE HELP

First of all, Vista uses DirectX 10 - but you should be able to install the DX9 end user runtime (not the SDK)

 

The main thing tho would be the graphics on the HP machine. If it's using an onboard chipset, it mightn't have enough power to work with video - you didn't say what model the Pavilion is, so I have to guess here that it is onboard.

 

If you can, tell us what the graphics are (it will be in control panel, system, device manager) and also how much RAM you have

I opened the device manager but don't see an item titled "graphics" There is "display adapters" which is NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430

HP Pavilion model FK550AA ABA 6604f Processor AMD Athlon 64 x2 dual core processor 4600 + 2.4 GHz 3.00 GB RAM 32 bit operating system Any help you can offer greatly appreciated. Thanks

the 6150SE is an onboard chip which uses part of the system meory to work.

 

In general, onboard chipsets are poor performers in comparison with separate cards - you could try one or two things first tho:

 

Go to nVidia and get the latest drivers there (not the HP or MS ones) and install those

Also, in Videowave, go to Tools, options and change to Software rendering (if it's set to hardware)
