I have a husqvarna122 HD 45 hedge trimmer and it will not stay running it is wide open all the time the only way to keep it running is to run the machine at 3/4 Choke. when running the machine sounds like...

While not being familiar with your machine, there could be several causes, the first that comes to my mind, based on your analysis ["...sounds like it is under load."], is that there IS SOMETHING CAUSING the system to "BE UNDER LOAD"!!!!!

Now, considering what could cause such a load on the system THREE things come to mind:
  1. An ACCUMULATION of trimming DEBRIS has gotten between the cutting blade and its support frame, causing the blade to severely bind / "drag"!, or
  2. The bolts or screws holding the cutter blade and its NON-moving support frame together have been OVERTIGHTENED, or
  3. A bearing, or bearings, in the engine are failing and are beginning to seize.
  4. On some machines, the connection between the engine and the blade involves an eccentric arm, with a BEARING. IF that bearing is beginning to fail, and thus seize, that could be the cause od the "unknown" extra load.

It sounds as if the software is 'dropping frames'

Video consists of 25 frames per second. When capturing video, the computer has to read and compress each frame in real time. If your processor is not fast enough, it cannot keep up and will drop frames.

The problem is it only drops the video frames, not the audio frames, so over time the picture and sound go out of sync.

Make sure your computer meets the minimum specs. for the software. Also close any other programs that are running as this will lighten the load on your processor. If you've got loads of icons in the lower right-hand corner of your screen (these are all progrmas running in the background) close as many of these as possible as well.

Hope this helps,

No volume with dvd on acer arcade or windows

If there are no hardware issues most probably the following are the reasons:
1. Check whether the Media Player sound is not muted. 2. Check whether the systems sound is not muted. 3. If you encounter sound problems only with dvds most probably there is no driver issue, but there can be a codec issue, install the latest version of media player and if possible install a better dvd player software. Google AVS DVD player a freeware.

RE ACER ASPIRE 5735 No sound on DVD

You need to play DVDs through Acer Arcade. To do this you can turn off autoplay (use help function), or assign Acer Arcade to automatically play DVDs. If you still want to use Windows Media Player to play your DVDs you must uninstall Acer Arcade.
