How do I fix it if Vista is causing my new off-brand laptop to choke while playing DVDs?
A month ago, I bought a new Everex VA4300M laptop.
It's pretty sweet, but it chokes towards the end of Star Trek DVD episodes. And when playing Snood. Since that's pretty much all I do on the thing so far (it's my backup computer), I'm not sure how systemic the problem is.
Now, I'm no lawyer, but... Wait, I am a lawyer. Correction: I'm no computer technician, but my HYPOTHESIS is that it needs more RAM per the Vista OS. I'd very much appreciate feedback on whether this hypothesis is likely correct.
I've looked around for another 512 MB of DDR2 533MHz SDRAM. However, the PIN issue is confusing. In shopping online to find a good RAM addition, I've seen 220 pin RAM, 200 pin RAM, 184 pin RAM, etc. I have not been able to figure out how many pins are in the RAM on my Everex.
Any ideas, advice, proverbs that use puns of the word RAM, etc., would be greatly appreciated.
