    Default Laptop tweaks?...

    So.. The laptop. I was planning on using to play out of the house I tried out finally last night with tractor. It playsq the songs fine, loads fine, most everything fine... But once I start to mess with my controls, especially the one that controls the track selection, the audio stutters with every turn... What kinda tweaks can I do to maybe fix this or make my pc/software function better.. Can't afford to upgrade.
    I also mixing with a S2.

    ..and I'd put my pc specs but I'm in a lecture right now.

    Thanks


    ::::edit:::::
    here are the specs on my laptop I'm using..

    amd 64 x2 dual-core processor 1.70GHz
    1.50 GB RAM
    Windows 7

    and its an HP if that means anythin.. about 2 years old prob

    have a read of this, it will get your laptop running pretty much as good as it will, but the specs are pretty important, could do with knowing what youre using?

    Why not wait till you are finished your lecture and post the specs? Do you call the mechanic and say ... "my car broke down, whats wrong with it?" without telling him at least the make and model ?

    Because I was hoping this might be familiar to someone and get an idea of what could be the problem or a fix, perhaps In traktor settings or something. I'll post specs later if I can't find a cure before

    Low spec.
    These are the recommended specs:

    Windows XP (latest Service Pack, 32 Bit), Windows Vista/Windows 7 (latest Service Pack, 32/64 Bit),
    Intel Pentium 4 2.4 GHz or Intel Core Duo or AMD Athlon 64, 2 GB RAM


    Someone will tell you they run Traktor on a Texas Speak n Spell but the point is that not all laptops are created equally and yours, its underpowered im afraid.

    The Knowledge Base at the NI Forums has some great Tweeking Tips for Windows.
    Definitely worth joining just to look through them.

    I was planning on registering on that forum too but havn't had the time since purchasing my controller/software. I'll probably try to get some more specific help over there, thanks
