I have just installed windows 7 on my old laptop. It's an Acer aspire 1710.
It seems real slow and everything is jerky, I can't do more than 1 thing at a time, such as watch youtube while compiling code!
Most streaming videro jitters also.
For a few reasons I suspected the graphics chip. When looking at the properties I see that it is using DirectX 8.1.
I don't even have Aero on, which needs DX9.
I looked in system 32 folder and there are dx 8,9 and 10 drivers there.
How do I enable DX9? Would this speed up my computer?
