Hey so recently my computer has been beeping at me whenever I try to encode video or watch streaming video. Is there a problem with my graphics card or my processor? Everything in my computer is relatively new and I have an AMD athlon 4000+ processor which should be running fine. My graphics card however is an extremely old model (ATI 9550s) so I'm thinking it's the card. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated, Thanks.

Though I don't know much in this area (I am also a noob) but I'd say it is the GPU

Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers?

Is that easy to do? I'm good at maintaining my computer for the most part but I have never had to do that yet. How would I go about it? I have my driver cd, is it just a matter of loading them up or what?

Yeah it is very easy to do. Go to your control panel and uninstall the ATI drivers or the ATI catalyst centre, whichever you have installed. You will then be asked to reboot, and when you do the screen looks funny (jerky). You should then get the "Add New Hardware" wizard when you log in. Just ignore it, and go to http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html and then select your operating system and card, select go and it will take you to the latest drivers. Download this and install it, you might need to reboot again and then everything should come up sweet.
