ATI RADEON 7500: Stuttering; slow down with hardware acceleration >on fast system!
Posted on 2003-03-02
i have a radeon 7500 (64 megs ddr, tv out, etc) running on my pentium 4 2.4 ghz 512 mb ram system, with 80 gig hdd with 8 meg buffer,(DMA is enabled on all drives and hard drive) which is all bloody fast, but when i enable hardware acceleration on apps like power dvd (newest version) in win 98 SE it stutters and will not play right at all. occasionally this happens with games too,. i figure my system is fast and should be able to handle this.. so it's pissing me off quite a bit. i am wondering if it is a windows 98 thing.. but if you guys could help me narrow it down, that would be nice, i have no problem upgrading to win xp, but i've had quite a few set up problems until now and hate to have to go and do it all over again right away.. any other suggestions would be very helpful! thanks in advance
