The trouble is with your metwork connection through which the Laptop connects to the Internet. There is no proven way to increase the speed of connectivity. You may check your connection speed from the two-computer icons on the bottom-right corner and determine the speed. A speed of 2 mbps or more is ideal for viewing videos on internet.

Desk keeps losing internet connection playing World Golf Tour golf game


well you might just have poor internet connection. and the reason why it only crashes when connected to that program is because it probably sucks up more bandwidth(the amount of data needed to process a task) than most programs on your computer. and if your modem has a low bandwidth, it cannot handle large processes of data. to test if its your connection open up a browser, go to youtube, and play a random video, repeat this process 5-10 times in new windows each time. if all the videos run fine without lots of delay then it is the applications, but if it takes a long time to load each video it is a problem with your modem and you should consider contacting your provider for upgrading it.

If it is a problem with the application try re-installing the application

Pc laptops aint working


need more information. are the games you play online? if so, you likely need to uninstall/reinstall either flash or java. also try the games in a different browser. if the games are 'loading' but choppy and bad graphics, you don't have a video card driver installed.

How do I get more bandwith so I can watch videos without them stoping and starting.


First i will ask who is your internet provider? Do you know the speed of the internet you got? Remember 1Mbs or lower is bad for playing videos. I would ask your internet provider to up your speeds to 3Mbs but no lower.

Cant watch at higher rate. you tube keeps stopping


If you can't watch at a higher rate it means that your internet connection is not fast enough to buffer/load all the information contained in the video quickly enough to play it in a smooth fashion. Use 240p or 360p, this will reduce the amount of time taken to buffer/load the video.

Another approach would be to consider the purchase of a faster internet connection, or may be if you are using a wireless connection, connect your computer/laptop to your router via an ethernet cable when wanting to watch videos. Ethernet cable would be faster especially over long distances.

Take care!

Having problems with playing video's on my computer via websites (news page etc) will work for @ 10 seconds then pause for @ 30 seconds then work for 10 seconds and continue to repeat this process I have...


Videos on websites need time to load before they will play seamlessly. When you first load the video, pause it and wait for a few minutes. You may see a bar loading across the part of the window that shows how much has loaded. This will take a few seconds or a few minutes depending on how fast your internet connection is.

My youtube videos takes more time buffering than playing a 5 min video takes 30mins or more to play


The reason why the youtube videos takes more time in buffering is it gathers the data/video before it loads or run. And it will also vary the speed of the internet connection. Meaning, the low internet connection, the more time in buffering.

Whenever I try to play clips ( ie Youtube, etc) they keep stopping after a few seconds, they stop for maybe 20 seconds and they play for four seconds and stop and so on


This is generally a symptom of a download problem. Check your netowrk connections and verify that they are solid. The video is bufferred down to your local machine and displayed. The display is utilizing the downloaded data faster than you can load additional packets from the net. If you can not find the delay, pause the video for a little while. It will continue to load. That should allow the video to play to completion without delay. If not, then your graphics card may need an upgrade. If the card itself does not have sufficient on-board memory, the information needs to be refreshed from main computer memory which will slow things down.

Check those things first and update this with your results. There are other possibilities as well.

Dan

Video games


Hello,

You are probably correct on both issues video and internet speed. I'm not sure which site that your are using to play cards but, if they have the options to turn off sounds and turn down the details of the graphics that should help some. You can contact their support email if you need instructions on making these changes. The support email address is usually support@<playing_site.com>, where <playing_site> is what you type to get to the site to play without the http://www.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

My Emachine Pc keeps cutting off


It could be that your power supply is not putting out enough power to keep up with demand. IE.. during high graphics loads. If you upgraded your graphics card without upgrading your power supply, this could be the problem. Most PC's off the shelf are under powered and putting a video card in that requires mass power will really kill a system. Or it may be overheating. Overheating causes a varied number of problems to a PC, most of them permanent.
Also, there is a code to the beeps. The pattern of the beeps will tell you what the error is. Check with the MB manufacturer to find out what they are.
