So, I installed the IBM signed Nvidia drivers… no joy though. The machine still struggles with video playback – which is seriously taking the piss. This is a Sempron 2800 processor powered machine. The TNT2 may be long in the tooth but it’s certainly capable of full screen video – and has been before. Hell, my K6-II could outperform this machine’s video at the moment. Anyone got any suggestions – is it XP unhappy with 64bittyness? Is it TNT2 doesn’t play well in a 64bit machine / or with XP on a 64 bit machine?
Help! I need my decent video playback back. And a performance hike’d be nice, this machine’s hella-slow quite a lot of the time. It’s got half a gig of ram, is that way too low (it’s more than the old one had and that outperformed this one by a substantial margain).
Suggestions on a comment to the usual address :-)
