    is my computer out of date?

    Can anyone help?

    I have a 2006 version of Avid Express Pro hd Academic 5.0. I installed it on my laptop, but it runs really slow. I can't get continuous play on video. I can only edit frame by frame pretty much. The error message says it can't support the quota or something. My computer is a hp pavilion 1.86 Ghz, 444MB of Ram. Is my computer too old and slow? Do I need a new computer? I think it is a 2002. Also, when I export as AVI, there are green vertical lines in my video. Thanks for whatever advice you can give. Please email me at Schwartz.Ian@gmail.com

    The software is telling you that you have insufficient memory.  If I remember correctly, version 5 required 1 GB of memory minimum and performed best with 2 GB.  If you're working with DV resolutions your processor speed is probably OK though.

    As for your green vertical lines, someone else will need to contribute.  But as an aside, private answers to a publicly posted question are not encouraged.  The reason is that this is a cooperative website dedicated to sharing knowledge.  Sequestering information by private replies to questions is not in the spirit of this site.

    Green lines? Please fill in Your system specs, that may lead to more accurate feedback.

    Hi,

    Your system is pretty slow, so I wouldn't get my hopes up.  Like the others have said, without knowing the rest of your system specifications, it's hard to say what the problem might be.

    This thread helped me out a few years ago when I was having trouble with green imports. 

    good luck,
    Carl

    Carl, I agree with You: an AMD cpu it's what came to my mind too when reading the 1rst post in the thread.
