I have HTTP Error 403 how can i fix it
By far the most common reason for this error is that directory browsing is forbidden for the Web site. Most Web sites want you to navigate using the URLs in the Web pages for that site. They do not often allow you to browse the file directory structure of the site

Videos play slow & stutter
Welcome to fixya.
Since you are able to play the video, New video drivers won't add much to the perfromance.
The stuttering of the video can be of two reasons.
1) If your source cd/dvd or even the file on your comp might have been corrupted.
This can be fixed by geting a new copy of the video or to use some better video players which have a higher error correction.
2) You are running on a low RAM/CPU.
Increasing the Virtual memory can help upto a certain extent but it has a threshold and after which moving the data from Ram to virtual memory and bringing it back to ram will become a overhead to the system and will eventually slow down.
If your system has a very slow processor or has a very low RAM or you are running multiple heavy applications parrellely, Then you may need to go for a system upgrade.

Compaq presario s5100nx very slow windows xp
1GB of RAM is not enough to run Windows XP and the programs you installed efficiently. Removing unnecessary programs should make more memory available for necessary programs but it will never be fast. Crucial.com is a great resource for memory upgrades but I don't think you should invest in a computer that old with a completely unsecure and unsupported operating system (XP).
I hope this helps.

WHY DOES A RED LIGHT FLASH 4 TIMES THEN SHUTS OFF ON MY HP COMPAQ
Here is what I would do...
Turn the PC off and unplug it. Then press the power button to drain any residual power from the motherboard.
1. Remove and reseat the memory module(s). Restart the PC.
2. If removing and reseating the memory module(s) doesn't work, if you have more than one memory module installed, remove all but one, and start the PC.
Test each memory module one at a time, until you find the one that is bad.
If none of that works, check for bulging and leaking capacitors on the motherboard. These may be particularly noticeable around the processor area.
