CS2 Causes Bad Lagging and processor heatup With New Core2Quad
I have been using CS2, later CS2,5, to record my Powerpoint lectures full-screen in real-time, including my Smartboard notations and audio from a wireless mic. All worked pretty find on my old Pent4 2.8 machine with 1GB RAM. When I added a camera for a 'talking head' effect, the timing got all messed up and my audio track sounded like mickey mouse on playback, so I forgot the camera for the time being.
Now I have a new 2.66 Core 2 Quad setup w/4GB RAM running XP32. On the initial tryout today I ran my powerpoint presentation, all went very well. However, when I tried to record it fullscreen with CS2.0, it made my PPT presentation really lag and I was unable to make notations on the touch board. I checked the temp of my C2Q and it had risen from the normal 37 deg C to a frightening high 50's. I killed the CS2.0 and everything settled back down. Then I tried CS2.5 and got the same results. And I haven't even tried adding my video capture card yet.
I suspect I am perhaps not sampling at a correct rate or am using the wrong codec or something with the CS, causing the processor to peg out at 100% and lag and heat up. I really would like to get this working, I invested some $$ on the new sys and it should perform way better than it is.
Any suggestions out there would be appreciated. firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to email directly. HELP!!!! Thanks
