It kinda sucks that my first post here is a problem with my new machine, but there you go.
The problem that I've been having is that whenever I try to play 1080p WMV files, it doesn't seem to be able to do it smoothly. It acts as though it's a small netbook trying to play a massive file. I know it's got nothing to do with lack of guts, because it's a massive upgrade from my old G60, which handled HD just fine. As far as I can see, there aren't any updates available for the graphics card's drivers, and I have the problem on both integrated and dedicated cards.
Any idea what might be causing this?
