Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 8600 Notebook ?

GRAPHICS PROBLEM I am trying to play games on my Inspiron 8600 which has an ATI Radeon Mobility 9600 Pro Turbo with 128 MB RAM (Dell Driver). While playing, all of a sudden the graphics/screen become jerky for a couple of minutes (as if there was a lag). Then on its own the graphics become smooth again (actually quite good...). This happens on and off throughout gameplay. For the last 6 months, I am facing this issue.


Answers :

If your ATI video is using shared memory, you may not be able to change it. (check your bios) If it is on board memory, that should be a pretty good card for a laptop. However, check with www.parts-people.com for any upgrades available for your model. They specialize in dell parts.
Increase your video memory from 128 MB to 256 or 512 MB depends on how much physical memory u have..
