    My laptop won't generate HD images smoothly

    What do i need to upgrade, the graphices card or the RAM? I currently have a HP9646em and when uploading and trying to edit some hd images i shot on my new camera, the images are lagging.

    Please Help

    ... your well cool:roll:

    Press CTRL+ALT+DELETE and monitor Windows Task Manager to see what resources are being used up.
    My guess is RAM....

    Specs ?

    the CPU does increase to around 80 or 90% when viewing the image! how much would this cost to upgrade?

    Be cheaper in the long run to buy a new laptop.

    HD images? Are you sure you don't just mean large JPEG files from the camera.

    Oooh, you meant HD footage not pictures! I wondered what you meant by "HD images"!

    if you're finding they're lagging whilst editing that's nothing new.. especially if you're editing 'online'.

    professional film editors will generally edit their HD film 'offline' meaning the editing etc is actually done with footage where the quality has been considerably degraded. then when the final film is rendered they use the edit data and apply it to the original full HD footage.

    a professional film editing package like final cut, avid or vegas can do this..

    otherwise just edit it online in HD, it'll be choppy when you edit but when you finally render the footage it should play smoothly.
