How do I determine how good my video card is. Because my WMP, is running movies really weird on it. For example, if its full screen everything is cool , until the mouse pointer disappears, everything starts lagging, i have no idea why, this doesnt happen in the winamp player though. No clue what to do here.

open media player. Go to tools, options. Under performance make sure the video is set to full hardware acceleration.

What version of media player do you have?

About your video card, do you know your system specs? If not go to Start, run and type in dxdiag. Click on yes on the new prompt box. when the dxdiag launches the first screen will show your basic system info. Click on the display tab. There on the left hand side at the top, it will show what your video card is.

update your video drivers. Start by going to the make of your pc systems site (dell for example) or if its a custom system, go to the system board maker's site. The intel 815 chipset uses an intergrated graphics solution and has lots of issues. Please note that if this is a laptop, then you will need to first update the bios before updating the video drivers.
