Having problems with your Compaq PC Desktops ?

When I play streaming video from the net and use full screen mode the ati video driver fails and recovers numerous times sometime 25=30 times during a movie I have tried updating drivers but apparently I have the latest ones for my ati x 1100 onboard video card, have also contacted adobe but no solution as it seems there is a conflict with direct x 10 have also contacted ati but no answer can anyone help or even suggest what video card I could install that would solve the problem


Answers :

Do you know what an onboard video card is? it is a basic video card that is primarily installed onto the motherboard for basic PC work, not for heavy video files or gaming. seems to me you have a low end graphics card that cannot handle the job.you have to find out whether or not you can upgrade your pc to a fullon mind blowing video card before you even think about getting another. but unfortunately you do. plus you also need to check your net connection speed as this can play a major part also when downloading and playing large files.
