Windows 2003 has been launched for some time I believe many friends are using it. However because Windows 2003 was developed to meet the needs of servers and dealt with the default settings of hardware such as sound cards and graphics cards individual users often encounter some 'troubles' when using them. Of course it is not difficult to solve them.
1. The picture is rough when playing movies
Many friends have such 'encounters': their computer configuration is quite high and the graphics card can be automatically recognized and installed when Windows 2003 is installed but the picture is very rough when playing movies. The picture quality remains the same after the latest graphics card driver. In fact this is because the default display options of Windows 2003 are not optimized according to the needs of individual users.
★Solution: Right-click on the desktop enter 'Display Properties→Settings→Advanced→Troubleshooting' in turn and drag the 'Hardware Acceleration' cursor to the right to 'Complete ' then click 'OK' to exit. Then go to 'Start→All Programs→Accessories→System Tools→System Information' select 'Tools→DirectX Diagnostic Tool' (because the program collects system information you need to wait for a while a splash screen may appear) and select the 'Display' option Card enable 'DirectDraw Acceleration' and 'Direct3D Acceleration' in turn and then click 'Exit'.
2. The sound card does not work or the sound lags seriously
In Windows 2003 most sound cards can continue to use their drivers in Windows 2000/XP while older sound cards (such as Dimeng S90 etc.) have only drivers Installed manually. After installing the sound card driver it can sound normally in the Windows 2003 Standard Edition but in the Enterprise Edition the system still cannot produce sound or the sound is seriously lagging when playing games.
★Solution: Go to 'Control Panel→Sound and Audio Control Device' in turn check the 'Audio Service' option and click 'OK'. Then enter the 'DirectX Diagnostic Tool' select the 'Sound' tab drag the cursor to the right in the 'Acceleration Level' to 'Full Acceleration' click 'Exit' and finally restart the computer.
3. IE always reminds that there are hidden safety hazards
'I always feel that the latest version is the safest. I did not expect that when browsing the web under Windows 2003 every time I visit a page IE will remind me of hidden safety hazards and ask whether to continue to visit too. It’s inconvenient' friends often complain. The reason for this problem is that the default security level of IE in Windows 2003 is 'high'. Although the security can be improved it brings a lot of trouble to our daily Internet access.
★Solution: Start IE select 'Tools→Internet Options' and set the security level to 'Medium' in the 'Security' tab.
4. System response is slow when running large software
Servers and workstations have different requirements for system resources. If we usually run software such as Photoshop 3DSMAX etc. we should reallocate system resources and modify them to resemble Windows XP status.
★Solution: Go to 'Control Panel→System' and select the 'Advanced' tab click the 'Settings' button in the 'Performance' column select the 'Advanced' tab and click on the 'Processor Plan' Select 'Program' in both columns and 'Memory Usage' and finally click 'OK' and restart the computer.
