It might be overheating. Most laptops have vents in the bottom and the side or back. Block any of them, and the heat really builds up, especially in intensive use like showing videos. Lay it on a hard surface, maybe a big book, to let it breathe. It might save you long-term damage.

Can tv be seen on computer


I believe all the past seasons are on Netflix now. Other than that, try the CBS website. I think they have a new subscription service that will let you watch most of their programming.

Honestly, I tried netflix, and after two hours searching, I didn't find anything I wanted to watch. I cancelled my membership.

Netflix works in your computer. You need a good internet connection, and you watch movies and TV shows on your computer. You need speakers connected to your computer to hear the sound....

We want to wacth movie on d laptop,but we need dvd player to put inside,what will we do.


Since you've left out the make/model of the laptop, I'm going to assume it's a NetBook type that does not include a CD/DVD Drive internally, and has no space for one.
With this in mind, the only real choices you have are to watch the movies Streamed to your laptop via a service such as netflix, Copying the movie to a USB drive and viewing it from there, or getting an external DVD drive.

I have an Acer Aspire 5536. The graphics card appears not able to play movies very well. It jumps and skips a lot when watching movies. The picture may freeze and the picture may stay moving of vica versa....


i think problem lies not with video card but with program which you are using. most probably you have too many programs loading on startup, vista is an os from hell and is not handling priorites very well, but try these solutions:

1. streamline your boot-up to only necessary programs, remove all auto-starting on boot-up like messenger, yahoo, adobe, skype, office and what else what you have, leave only and only what is necessary to run your computer. these program should start only and only when you need them!
2. run ccleaner or similar, remove all rubbish from your computer and streamline your registry as well
3. use "decent" and lightweight video/dvd player, one of the better ones will be free vlc player
4. if you have less than 2gb ram, increase your ram to 2gb
5. if you can afford, upgrade to win7 of same "flavour" as your current vista...

i actually on my own computers disable screen saver when i am watching movies, some savers are very intrusive.

Computer shuts down watching netflix.........1/2 way into a movie Dell Inspiron 1525mj


The most likely thing is that you need to adjust your power savings settings on the computer in Control Panel. Watching a movie doesn't register as "activity" to the system so if you are set to Sleep or Hibernate after an hour that would typically cut you off half way thorught the movie.

You can change the power savings settings or every 30-40 minutes move the mouse around or click the keyboard etc. to restart the timer.

Full screen probs with netflix


This has nothing to do with Netflix, you would get the same result with any DVD regardless of its origin. Chances are that is the laptop trying to revert to a screen saver or power save mode during the movie.

Check your laptop's power and screen saver settings. If you are experiencing the problem every 3 minutes or so, your screen saver is most likely scheduled to go on after 3 minutes of inactivity. The same goes for your monitor-- it may try to dim or turn off after a certain amount of time.

To change these settings to a longer delay, go to your desktop and right click. Select "Properties". Choose the "screen saver" tab, and change the "wait:" field to a higher number. Or, just turn the screen saver off by selecting "(none)" under the screen saver dropbox. You may also click "Power" and change the time for "turn off monitor" to "never", or a longer amount of time.
