This can be a bit of a tricky one to figure out. My initial response would be that you have another program or process that is causing your computer to play 'choppy' video. When you have a newer computer that was recently working just fine and now all of the sudden the video is choppy, it is usually due to another process using CPU cycles that are so important to video playback.
Start playing a DVD, but don't go to full-screen mode. Open the Task Manager. Right-Click on the task bar and select Task Manager. Click on the 'Processes' tab. There is a column labeled CPU, click on the heading 'CPU' twice. This will order the processes in order from highest CPU usage to lowest. The top two processes will most likely be your DVD player and the process that is causing your choppy playback.If the offending process isn't essential (i.e. anti-virus), then click on said process and then click the "End Process" button.
Hi, sorry for the difficulty in using the system. I will advise you reload the operating system again. Make sure it's from the real manufacturer, I mean don't go for pirated. If it doesn't work, then back up your files and folders and format the system. I wish you the best.
Have you tried viewing in a different software, as i found that acer use a form of Power DVD as their standard movie player which comes installed with the system.
Try viewing in media player for example.
