Default When installing XP, computer jams

Thanks for a try, but isn't it if the memorz is burned that it wouldn't show it in the test of it. When i run the program and when i i have ME running the full memory is shown. So is it posible that it might be something else???
Thanks

Yeah, full memory will show, but if theres a problem , it'll cause errors. If you have two RAM chips, simply remove one by pulling the white clip up on it, and pull it out carefully.
If the one in then has issues, take that one out, and put the other back using a reverse process. You should hear a click and the button will slot into a hole made in the RAM chip so you know its in.

By the Way, don't create more than 1 thread for the same questions. Thanks

What you mean, put it down?

Hmm, go to the options of your DVD player and try and find Hardware Acceleration. Switch it off or on depending on what its on now, and hopefully that should sort it

What DVD player are you using?

I mean when it does the checking of the ram ot says that 16MB is used for the system memory. And in the BIOS it says the same. I tried the HW acceleration but still nothing. DVD is HP dvd writer, dvd 300i

it'll take it out because the videocard doesn't have any because it is an onboard chip, so it basically lives off your system, and has no vitals of its own. So it uses the CPU and your own system RAM.

Default DVD's,,,

16mb of borrowed ram is not going to work for watching dvd's. It's just not enough.
Please make sure you hit the post reply button not the start new thread button.

Let's get this resolved guys one of these threads has got to go.

Yeah. You might be able to get some improvment though by going into the video settings. Set it to software emulation and it might run faster (or try hardware)

I hope this helps With Software, i think it'll use more of the CPU than the video card and so might run better. I know PowerDVD

Hi guys,

I have tried taking the RAM out and both of them are working. So what do i do next?? As far as the DVD watching goes i have a friend here that has a graphic card with 4MB and can watch them with no problem so i think it should be possible for me. Any thoughts on that

This is the minimum requirements for Windows Media Player 9 Series if you want to play a dvd...

Yeah but J's running on Power DVD...

"Yeah. You might be able to get some improvment though by going into the video settings. Set it to software emulation and it might run faster (or try hardware)"

Try that, posted by me, honestly, it might work!

Some of the system RAM might still be faulty if XP isn't installing.

though do this with Power DVD:

Press the Configuration Button, then go to the Video tab, and Disable, or Enable Hardware Acceleration, depending on what its on now.

Plus press Advanced in the Video tab at the bottom, and try changing the resoloution of movies to a lower, more friendly setting.

then, check in the Audio tab that you are not running any 3D surround settings, so keep it at Stereo.

I hope this helps
