Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have a sony digital frame and the timer is set at 3 second interval however it continues to do the interval at 10 seconds . It is my understanding that the default setting from the factory is 10 seconds . I have gone into the menu and changed it to 3 seconds without success. Any suggestion ?

Nice to know the problem is fixed.

The easiest method is polling, where the data input is under application (software) control. Generally, the application reads the analog-to-digital converter output when a delay loop ends. However, the time elapsed depends on the the PC’s internal processor clock. Therefore, polling typically isn’t used when precise sampling is required. Here, the polling technique is adapted to achieve stable platform-independent programmable sampling.\015\012
\015\012Two special purpose ICs are in the PC’s chip set. One of them, in addition to providing control of several common system functions, includes two 8254 programmable interval timer ICs, offering six 16-bit programmable timers. All of the timers can work as a counter, with a master clock (1.19317 MHz) common to all. This frequency and the programming register addresses don’t vary among different platforms, assuring compatibility. Three timers are available to the user, allowing time generation from 0.8381 µs (1/1.19317 MHz) up to 55 ms (0.8381 µs × 65535). In this adaptation, timer 2, commonly used by the PC speaker for alarms or signaling, generates the time between samples. The timer, an 8254, is independent of the processor clock\015\012
