2.33 GHz vs. 2.10 GHz

Jan 15, 2012 12:17 PM

I have an AMD Phenom 8450 triple core processor 2.10 GHz, 4GB memory; 64 bit operating system, Vista home edition.  I have both IE9 32 bit and 64 bit.  I keep getitng a message to install the latest verison if I use IE; with firefox, I can play videos but they keep being interrupted.  I notice that the system requirements are for 2.33 GHz; does this mean I have to get a new computer?

    Did you install the 32-bit Flash Player for Windows?

    Windows 32-bit

    Flash Player for Internet Explorer

    What files are in folder Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash?

    Enabling Flash Player in Internet Explorer 9

    ActiveX Filtering in Internet Explorer 9


    Open Firefox.  Go to this site:

    Right click the spinning F, click Settings, uncheck Enable hardware acceleration.

    An improvement after disabling hardware acceleration means that you should update your video adapter driver.

    Windows: how do I update the device driver for my video/display adapter?

    Then you can try enabling hardware acceleration in Firefox.
