I purchased a 212-3 Automotive scope in early May. At hte time I was using a Compac Laptop, 144MB Ram, 5GB HD, 226 mhz MMX chip. I recently up graded to an HP Laptop. 512 MB Ram, 60 GB HD, Intel Centrino 1.7 Processor. The operating system is Windows Xp Pro.
The Pico system is 5.12.7. When I upgraded the laptop I noticed the space bar no longer stops the pattern. Under the VIEW pull down the space bar is activated. A few times hitting the space bar vacated the present screen, not closing the scope program, just the present screen.
Using the stop/go button also takes 2 to 3 frames to stop, the result is the capture is gone before the scope stops.
Here are some points of interest that may help you. The Pico software would not install on the new laptop. The software cd was installed on my home PC, my pc in my office and a back up pc at work. the first laptop.
To assist in the stopping of the scope I purchased a Gyration wireless mouse, This make a one person operation when doing a cold crank with the first look or a compression test with an amp. probe.
Thank You for your time.
