I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I wanted an application that records my screen, so i can upload my game play videos onto a website, like youtube or wherever. but whenever i start recording, it just laggs the crap out of my computer. i got a good computer and im even trying to use it with really crappy games, but it still laggs really bad. i even change the fps, but when i go too low, it laggs, and when i go too high it laggs...any help?

is it the application im using or what? cuz there is no way it should be lagging my computer so bad, it goes from like 60 fps to 20 fps when i start recording. whether i put it on 1 fps or 1000 fps recording, it laggs the same....any help please.

Hi,

I am trying to use a screen recorder to record my DOS 7.01 virtual machine. I have VM Additions installed. When I am not in full-screen mode, the DOS window is quite small on the desktop, so I want to shift to full-screen. But whenever I do, both Camtasia and CamStudio glitch in some way. Are there any better solutions beside a standalone? I guess I could use a video camera.

Thanks!

A:Screen recording DOS VM?

I suggest changing the MS-Dos window to a larger font size, and leave the window 'windowed'. Switching to full-screen MS-Dos causes the video driver to actually switch down to a plain VGA mode which is also character-based resolution rather than pixel-based.

If you click on the upper-left corner of the MS-Dos session, select 'properties' and pick a Lucida Console font -- maybe 20 points or higher. This should make your screen recordings readable

A:Screen recording with audio.

In most cases, you need to have the Stereo Mix (also called System Mixer) set as the Default Recording device. Then whatever is heard on the PC's speakers should be able to be recorded. (The Stereo Mix is also needed if you want to record streaming audio from the internet.

Go to the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound Panel, Recording Section. If the Stereo Mix is listed, enable it and make it the Default Recording Device. If its not listed, RIGHT click in a blank area in that panel then Click to Show "Disabled" and "Disconnected" Devices. The Stereo Mix should now be listed and you can enable it and make it the default Recording Device.

Hey all,

I've been spending the past week evaluating screen recording applications for my company's training dept.

So far my favorite is Camtasia by Techsmith.com for features, price, and ease of use.
($299 or less depending on number of licenses ordered)

Are there any other good ones I should try out?

It needs to be able to do AVI, WMV, SWF formats, with quiz/survey ability and have decent features for editing the recorded video.

We would probably need 5-10 licenses and not want to go over $250 per license.

Thanks for the info. JP

Hey guys.

I have a BenQ G2220HDA 1920x1080 display right now and I'm going to buy a computer that will run Win 7 on a maximum resolution, for sure. The problem is that I want to record screencasts, very smoothly, with no lags, like it happens on original mac machines (not hackintosh ones). So, I need an advice in configuration of a PC, what's more important in recording a screen with such a big resolution? CPU, RAM, video? Thank you!

Maybe you can suggest good PC specs?

A:Smooth screen recording

Get the fastest CPU(dual core minimum), the most RAM(need a 64 bit system if you want more than 4GB), and the fastest video card(512MB minimum) that your budget will allow, especially if you plan to use 32 bit color. You'll also need a dedicated sound card if you want audio.

I am usually playing with 125-200 frames but i have to record some where in the neighborhood of 40-50 to maintain a steady rate and avoid spikes PLUS when it comes to editing afterwards, if i record and at lower framerate it looks bad after i add effects and filters but with high frames it looks WAY better.

The video is laggy or you're lagging? If the video is it, it's because of the 5FPS capture rate. If you, camtasia is probably limiting the game to 5FPS so you it can capture.

Ok so I upload gaming videos onto various platforms and alot of the games I play are on mobile. Instead of just recording my phone screen with some mobile app I want to record my phone screen with my laptop so the video is better quality. The problem I'm having is that my current mobile device is not mhl (mobile high-definition link) or slimport supported. Before I found out my phone wasn't mhl compatible, I wanted to hook it up to my laptop by using a game capture device (like the elgato hd60) but that seems, at the moment, to be impossible atleast with this device. So my questions are the following: what alternatives are there to mhl adapter cable? Can I use screen mirroring? If so, what computer application can I do this with? Can I stream using the same application? Is there a low-end mobile device better suited to be used in this manner, but with an 8.0 Oreo operating system? Would this be easier with an iPhone (6s)?

Video capture software such as Fraps and Growler is good but I have to record at a lower frame rate so it doesn't eat up all my hard-drive space. Also, when im recording with software, anytime I switch screens ( example: Switch from in-game to desktop) my recording turns different colors.

It gives me the option to record an external sound input in addition to the game sound, but I'm using a program called Mumble along with Battlefield 2. Mumble has 13 Hotkeys to talk, 9 for specific squads, one for local chat, one for squad chat, etc. I want a game recorder to record all of those.
Is there any program which allows me to record from an external input (IE: my mic) with multiple hoykeys for activiation. (Fraps and other programs allow to just constantly record the external input, but then the game has a lot of background noise (and everything echoes))
