Very odd! Video ringing is usually due to 'overshoot' of the waveform due to high capacitance in the cable, or reflections back down the cable due to poor impedance mismatching, neither of which should be a problem with modern kit, unless you've added an extension to your video lead. The only alternative which comes to mind is if the same sort of thing is happening on the databus with your new RAM, but that would usually result in system crashes, unless the problem is in the I/O buffers on the video card itself. If your video system uses shared RAM on the motherboard, consider swapping it with a controller which uses on-board video RAM. You might also try moving the video cable, and checking that it's attached securely. Using a lower refresh rate might also help, as it reduces the bandwidth, but you might notice some flicker if your lighting is fluorescent. This may also help if the cause is overheating chips on the video controller. D. ----- Original Message ----- curiouser and curiouser. I use a 1GHz Athlon and W2000 Professional. I used to get a profile association problem message, ('could not find device')and the profile would not show up in the appropriate directory(s), but was clearly operating. That went away sometime after i got the newer Photocal update, and the profile showed up correctly in the /WINNT etc. folder, and could be associated correctly under Devices. Then i got the Wacom interaction problem, which is easily solved. No specific problems now, except i get video ringing since i installed more memory. seems to be associated with heavy disc hitting. It starts out clean, then gradually accumulates, and is often clean again once i do a cold reboot. I checked all the video setting that are civilian accessible, and recalibrated the monitor profile (i use 5000K and have no trouble getting the individual guns set, and achieving 85-95 lumens per instruction). The ringing doesn't seem to affect anything except my poor annoyed eyes. Any chance this is a timing issue too? ted ----- Original Message ----- From: "Geoff Murray (Boyer)" <Geoff.Murray@norske-skog.com.au> To: <email@example.com> Sent: Thursday, March 21, 2002 11:55 AM Subject: Re: Getting the right monitor profile > > When I tried to use my Spyder Photocal kept hanging part way for me as well, > even after unplugging everything USB based and trying all different USB > ports.
