    No, the CPU usage is related to how many programs or task are you doing at the same time.
    You can disable all background programs to get better performance.

Go to the website of the video card manufacturer and see if there are any updated drivers for it. Also make sure that Java, and Flash are all up to date.

Sometimes freezes and buzzes when watching videos


Could be having a problem with memory on your computer if you hear it beeping. If you have had your computer for a while you might need to have it opened and get the dust cleaned out of it. It could be overheating.

Why does my dell inspiron have trouble loading videos?


Are you having trouble viewing online or streaming videos? If yes, then update your flash player version from http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ .
If you have trouble playing videos stored on your computer, update your video drivers and ensure you have proper codecs for playing the video files. You can install the K-lite codec pack, available for free download from http://files.freesoft.ru/mm-mm/K-Lite_Codec_Pack_583_Basic.exe .

Good Luck!

The videos play but stop every 2 seconds then play again. I have no problem loading or doing anything else on my computer but watching videos.


Hi,
Before we can give you any troubleshooting steps wanted to confirm
1. Are you playing online videos or from cds or DVDs?
2. When did the problem start ?

Thanks

Video's on the web skip and stop instead of playing straight through. A 3 min video can take 10 minutes to watch????


While starting to play a YouTube video, press the PAUSE button.
Wait 2 minutes, and press the PLAY button.

If it plays "smoothly", then the only problem is the speed of your Internet connection. For example, if you have a teenage son,
and supply him with only one cheese-burger per day, he will complain that you are "starving" him. If you supply him more quickly, i.e., more burgers per day, he will stop complaining.
Similarly, a faster Internet connection will smooth-out your videos,
because the download is supplying data faster than your video-player is "consuming" the data.

Watching videos on the internet


This is normal. There is a minimum buffering time, and depending on your internet speed, it can be a few seconds or a few minutes before the video is loaded into memory to be watched without interruption. Just put it on pause when it starts loading.
