    Choppy music app transitions?


    Anyone else have this? I am using a GeForce 8400 GS 1GB RAM and the Music app is pretty choppy when art is moving around. Any ideas? Thanks.

    Generic advice for the time being. Make sure bios is set to Optimized Defaults then save. Update wireless driver to latest if wireless is present. Use this if it is Atheros based (most but not all are):

    ATHEROS drivers for Microsoft Windows (Atheros?????)

    Change the wireless?? Not sure what that would have to do with what I"m referring to. This is a desktop with all my files local on a SATA 2 drive for data and SATA2 SSD for OS. I would think it would be pretty snappy. Please clarify. Thanks.

    Simply: If there is a wireless adapter in the system, update it. If it uses Atheros chipset, use the supplied link.
