im getting tv on my pc from it comes in kinda blurry.
i have a Compaq Presario S6000NX, 2.7 GHz,256mb
there are 2 empty rows of plugs aprox.4inches long
just above the modem which i do not use,i have a westell modem.
Would a graphic card or something else fix the blurry problem im haveing with the streeming tv signal?
if so what card would work with my pc?
Any help would be appreciated!

First thing I would do is upgrade your memory to 1Gb from the 256 MB

You could also upgrade the Intel Extreme Graphics Driver and see if that help before buying a

new Graphics card

You will have to disable the motherboard Intel Extreme 3D Graphics with 64MB of Shared

Memory and install a PCI Graphics Cards that will fit on one of the two PCI slots on the

Personal I would get the PNY GeForce 6200 256Mb PCI graphics card it also have a DVI and a

VGA monitor connection plus an S video output socket

What anti virus software are you using?

Take a read at these site before you try to install the new graphic card if you feel that you might screw it up ask one of your friend who have computer experience to install the card

ambra4, im useing spyware terminator with the settings as low as possible and your links still show infected.not sure whats it is.
Ive checked the process for installing the card and it wouldn't be a problem but the sites that have a visual of installing one have a different set of plugins than mine. i would like to send a photo of the inside of my pc to someone to find out if i can put in a new card or not. im asking you ambra4 or anyone with experience in this matter to send an email to me and i will return the photo.

If you're getting a free TV feed over the net (from somewhere) - then it will be blurry - most are low speed, low quality streams.

The domain name is for sale - all that's on there are ads.
