I have unlimited talk text and data, I use internet sharing to my DVD player for Netflix it keeps stopping and loading how can I fix this, it will play for maybe ten seconds and stops to load

Netflix needs a fast download speed I tried netflix but my ADSL2 landline but it was too slow and I experienced this annoying behaviour . Unfortunately Netflix and other movie providers do not let us download ahead of the movie to allow for delays or errors in transmission slowing down the live streaming. Fibre optic data stream land service would fix this I am not sure on g4 mobile data as it is faster than g3 mobile data but is not always available when radio channel slots for g4 as used in an area . G3 is a revert to service when g4 is not available. Phone has to have g4 capability also.

Playback in video

dv6-7020, what OS? XP, VISTA, W7, W8. W8.1 W10 (release 1,2,3)
we cant answer this lacking , OS, and what media you are playing?

media can be.
1: DVD or blue ray or even a CD can have videos.
2 : a video file, like MP4 or 100s of other types of formats,
3: online video streaming, are you on line, if yes, where.>?
name the source , by name, netflix, or youtube or? where?

ok this always worked ok before, but not now.
sure (top reasons are what, )
1: Virus infected PC.
2: if online, the web is slow, or if on wifi, (hopeless) wifi is slow due to congestion in the hood. try upper wifi channels, to cure.

why not just start with OS
like this, (and example)
1: windows 10.
2: VLC on youtube is slow.
VLC on a local, MP4 fail is slow, chops or sounds wrong.
like that, tell the story as it happens and bingo, 10x better help.

My sound is real funny like chipmunk sounds

If the pitch of the sound being played by your computer speakers has changed dramatically or songs and videos are playing faster or slower than they typically should be, the problem is with the sound speed on your computer. This could mean a hardware issue with your speakers or sound card or a software issue with the program that you're using to play a digital media file.

Double-check your speaker connections. If one of the audio cables that runs off of your speakers isn't plugged correctly into your computer, this could cause the audio coming from them to speed up or slow down. Make sure all cables are properly connected to their proper inputs and try to play your audio again. Update the driver for your computer's sound card. Go to the website of the company that made your sound card and look for your unit's product page. Under the "Support" section, click on the download link for the latest device driver. Once the file is on your computer, double-click on it to install it. Then restart your computer and try to play your audio again. Make sure you haven't accidentally sped up or slowed down the media file you are trying to play. Many digital media programs like iTunes or Windows Media Player have features that allow you to play a song or video in slow or fast motion. If this becomes accidentally selected, the audio will also be in slow or fast motion. Click "Stop" to stop your media file from playing and then click "Play" again to allow it to play normally. Restart your computer. This will free up system memory when your computer restarts. If your sound was playing too slow or too fast due to an error with not having enough memory to play properly, that error will now be fixed and your sound should return to normal speed. Hope this helps.

Whenever I play a DVD, the playback seems a slow both sound and video. Not sure if I need to clean it or what? I have a Lenova 0769 running XP Pro Version 2002 SP 3.

If it is your cd-dvd rom, or your dvd's, your movies would skip, freeze, like any other movies players such as a scratch dvd played on your home dvd player. So,
did this happen before any updates to your o/s, such if you are using windows media player to play your movies?? If not, it could be a software issue, where some updates will bring your programs up to date, but uses more cpu/memory and even your GPU (graphic processor) and thus cause your movies or video to play back slowly because your computer hardware is underpower to handle the up to date versions., or it could be vise versa where your program will needs an update to the newest version to play. (Usually like adobe, java to watch youtube or online videos). You might want to see if you can play with another program and see if you get different result, or maybe undo your update to previous version.

DVD is not working

It could be a number of things first make sure it is infact a DVD drive. I know it sounds funny but stranger things have happened. Next what program are you using to play the DVDs on. Windows media player will not play DVDs without installing additional software. Cyberlink DVD player is a good one to try or any free DVD player off the net. Another good choice is and download their free software and see if it works..
