Hi I am new to the forum. I have been trying to solve a video problem for awhile now. Most any motion or anything that needs constant updating is a bit hesitant or jerky not terrible but enough so you notice it . I have replaced the video card the mother board,the proccesor, added ram (768 total) the video card has 256 ddr on board,larger power supply (430 watts),New monitor (Sharp 17" LCD). The jerkyness seems to be in time with the hard disk acces light.(Hard drive - Western Digital 160 ,7200rpm, w/8meg buffer). I have loaded the newest VIA 4 in one drivers. There is a utlity that came with the video card called "Power strip that will let you give more proccesor time to specific applications,this seems to help alot. I have a fair amount of stuff running in the background,but when i shut down everything in the task bar it does not seem to help that much. I am out of ideas. Anyone have a suggestion.
