Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
Could updating my vid driver and re setting my virt/mem settings help videos download & play faster w/o "stuttering" frame by frame????
thanks for any input,
Check what screensavers or processes you have running in the background.
I had this problem for weeks before I found it was my screensaver automaticly coming on and draining my resources.
Hope this helps.

Welcome to fixya.
Since you are able to play the video, New video drivers won't add much to the perfromance.
The stuttering of the video can be of two reasons.
1) If your source cd/dvd or even the file on your comp might have been corrupted.
This can be fixed by geting a new copy of the video or to use some better video players which have a higher error correction.
2) You are running on a low RAM/CPU.
Increasing the Virtual memory can help upto a certain extent but it has a threshold and after which moving the data from Ram to virtual memory and bringing it back to ram will become a overhead to the system and will eventually slow down.
If your system has a very slow processor or has a very low RAM or you are running multiple heavy applications parrellely, Then you may need to go for a system upgrade.
