Having problems with your Fujitsu LifeBook P2040 Notebook ?

Fujitsu P 2040 DVD choppy player

\015 I have a p2040 I am trying to use as a portable DVD player, and netbook. I just cleared the hard drive and install XP pro. It has 256 Megs of ram, and I have almost nothing on the machine. The sound and picture seams a little choppy during action scenes. Any advice on how to clear those issues up? I'm using Win DVD 5.1 to play the DVD. When I bought the machine new it had the same problem. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. \015

Hi there,

My take on this problem is that your video performance would greatly benefit from increasing the system memory to at lest 1GB for use with XP, but first try the following.

Since you plan to use this as a netbook, when playing a DVD, turn off everything else, even ANTI-VIRUS, so please have next to nothing running in the task bar by the little clock on desktop.
Go to START > RUN > type MSCONFIG and go to startup tab to disable any annoying programs that start up with windows automatically, to save on resources.

As for my DVD player program, I have to go with VLC media player. It is very small, easy on resources, and plays near every format out there. The link below will take you there.


These are all my suggestions, and I would like to end by asking you to please refrain from voting on me, UNLESS I was able to FIXYA! I would appreciate that. Thanks and good luck!
Make sure that you have the latest drivers for your video card and audio cards turn down the visual effects of windows xp to best performance and check all background programs and see whats being used up
