Re: videos play slow & stutter
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.

It's because the video isn't downloading fast enough. When a video starts playing just hit the pause button ( || ) and do something else for 2 or 3 minutes or so. When you come back, you will see that the red line has advanced most if not all the way to the right. Then hit the play button ( > ) and your video will play without stuttering or freezing.
Is there perhaps an indication that your CPU is throttling back due to overheating? That might explain the sound (BIOS and chipset-generated.) Try checking your temperatures and system event logs.
It could be that your video drivers are really wacky somehow, but loose heatsinks or bad airflow sound likelier. (Of course you'd reinstall the heatsink and paste and correct the airflow to bring cool air in and exhaust it once it passed heatsinks.) Oh...and you could probably stand to have more DDR2.
There could be a number of different problems; 1: Connection issues; is your internet service slow? 2: Processor; what's your processor's clock speed vs the video quality? 3: More RAM could never hurt to fix the problem. My advice to you is to pause the video and let it load entirely / buffer and all that.
The motherboard is good enough and so is your graphics card so i don't see any reason why the games not playing. Games like star wars galaxies are memory dependent as well as processor dependent.
How much system memory have you got installed in the system? Also have you got a decent AMD dual core processor?
If you think that your system maybe lacking in system memory the what you can do to play the game is set all the settings of the game to medium. That way you can play the game while you wait to upgrade the system. The game should run on a far less powerful machine according to the system requirements of the game.
If I was you i would uninstall the game and then perform a system defragmentation (defrag), then reinstall the game.
If you want a decent defrag program then i recommend Defraggler >>>>
Download and install the program. Run Defraggler and restart the computer. Install the game and see if it will play without locking up.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!
I would fist try updating the memory to at a minimum 256MB. You might also try changing you display card an accelerated model. My guess would be you are currently sharing memory with an onboard display card. Not good for Video streaming!
