Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

1 Answer

Video lag I have been having this problem ever since i got this laptop. All video skips and lags. I currently have XP but have tried Vista and Ubuntu. It does it with any OS I use. At first it will play fine but after a few min it starts to stick and stutter but the audio plays smooth. If I restart it will play fine again for a few but it happens again. My internet bandwith is 16mb a sec I have two 1.6 ghz proccesers and and ATI Radeon Xpress viddeo card. I can't figure it whats wrong. The only Idea I have is this is a piece of junk. Help me plz!!

Compaq Presario Cq57-210US - Online Vide Lag


Make sure you have the latest version of flash player installed. What browser are you using? If it's chrome, make sure there aren't multiple versions of flash player enabled by opening a new tab and going to chrome://plugins. Are you having trouble with local video (on the machine itself) as well? If so, you may need to update your graphics drivers. If none of the above are helpful, try downloading and installing the latest version of the k-lite codec pack

Thinkpad a31, video playback lags, have current video drivers, up to date bios, can't seem to solve this problem


Try a lightweight playback program like VLC from videolan.
If it still lags, its probably just down to the graphics capabilities of your laptop

I have a game lag(games like War craft and Counter strike)...all drivers are up to date..system spec are also high..dont know what to do..plz help(( my laptop is amilo li 1718..the game lag is not related...


that unit may have decent processor specs but that means nothing because the video card for those are a ATI Radeon 200M. World of Warcraft does nto support that video card correctly and is too slow to make the graphics not lag.

counter strike source on full low everything will run fine on this video card but the game will look bad.

Vista inspirat


i believe because you don;t have enough memory

i have used vista inspirat before

i got rid of it because it was making my computer lag a lot too.

just get rid of it and don't "switch to your windows xp style".

then you can keep the vista taskbar w00t

thats all i wanted in the first place so now i have what i want and no lag

try that
i also added more memory to my computer AFTER i lost the lag

so don't think you have to put more memory in your computer

Inspiron B130 laggy video and sound.


I'd recommend the latest video drivers- and strangely enough- defragging the hard drive. Most laggy systems I've seen with plenty of ram (512 or more) that have no spyware on them, and no major ram eaters (norton, spysweeper, mcafee) are fragmented. look in task manager (ctl, alt del) and see how much free ram you have- and see what is using all of it. If you have a lot of ram, and no process is chewing up the ram, or the cpu- then defrag the hard drive.
