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.

How do i keep sloping in youtube

Do you mean the video takes ages to load and then plays a bit then stops - then plays a bit more than stops?

If you do the problem could be your flash player. You might need to update your Adobe flash player. It's free, just search for Adobe flash player online.
Once that is done if it still does it then you might not have sufficent memory on your computer or a memory problem. Another reason could be slow broadband. Faults on your phone line can cause problems that you might only notice when downloading video, which takes a lot of memory. Your broadband provider might have capped your download speed. Check out one of those broadband speed testers on the internet to see what you are getting.
The faster your proccessor on your computer the more quickly the videos will load. If your computer is doing several actions at once that will slow the speed down. So you can stop them by closing programs that are running.

Why isn't my youtube videos not working

it could have to do with a poor internet connection. if your connection is slow, it wont be able to load/buffer as well so the sound and video will keep stopping to load the next bit.. you may also want to make sure you have the most up-to-date version of Java and stuff.

The sound is choppy but only while chatting.Playing video in the system doesnt have problem.

It sounds like the problem may be in the latency or speed of your internet connection. I am assuming that you are using a program like skype to do VoIP operations, which send data packets with sound information in them over the internet. A slow connection will make it so that some of the packets don't arrive in time to play the sound smoothly.

Playing video is probably different because the problem is not one with your computer, but your internet connection. Even if the video is coming off the internet, because the video doesn't have to be real time, a less reliable internet connection is fine, because your computer can make a buffer of the information, which doesn't work for Chat applications, since they must be real-time.

If you are more specific about what you are doing, I can perhaps give a more detailed solution.

if you are watching streaming video from the internet then your computer downloads part of the video and lets you watch it, if the computer plays the video faster than it can download it then it will pause the video while it downloads more this is called buffering. This can be because of many factors which include internet download speed, amount of people online and using the same service. Or a problem on your pc

My videos start then loads, then plays, then loads. It keeps loading throughout the video


This problem, i.e, the videos keep stopping and starting is usually due to a slow internet connection.

To resolve this issue, kindly let the video download completely before playing the video.

To do this, click the "Pause" button (shown by red arrow in the attached image) on the video bar and let the pink colored bar (shown by green arrow) fill up entirely.


When the pink bar fills up completely, click the "Play" button. (See below image)


Now the video playback will be smooth and without any breaks.

Hope this solves your problem. For more help and clarifications, please feel free to reply to this post.

Thanks for using FixYa

My Toshiba Satellite A215-S7444 turns off everything anything type of video is playing internet or dvd. Why is that? What can I do to prevent this?

I'm gonno bump this as it's a massive problem with Toshiba laptops and so many peoples questions are unanswered. I have a Toshiba Satellite A210-11p with an Ati mobility radeon 2600hd graphics card. I have spent years dealing with this problem. Some people will have heat problems, this is a common problem with them, but some laptops will cut out when you go to play say a video or play a game. This is a graphics card problem!! nothing else it is purely a graphics card problem, the second you go to load something when Maximise Performance on the graphics card turned on the laptop will cut out like it shorts out. the charger light on the laptop will flicker and it will make a clicking sound when it cuts out.

Can someone please find a reason and a solution to this extremely common and fatal flaw in toshiba satellite laptops
