Distorted screen when i play divx files and there is a fast movement in screen some parts of the screen seem to lag. Im not talking about the pixelated bad codec artifacts, but it looks like my video card cant handle it or something, it like distorts one half of the screen. Is this a common problem? I use windows mediaplayer classic with all the latest codecs Its a core 2 duo t7100 with an nvidia gforce 8600m gs. thanks in advance, Arjen Klaverstijn

Re: distorted screen

Use VLC player for all your media playing needs ( no need for divx codec downloads)

Poor playback on youtube/other streamin sites (laggy frame)

Still sounds like a connection problem despite your 'fast connection' claim.
I would look for a friend with a different provider and try their connection before setting fire to your system. If you get the expected response, then you can attack your provider. If not, there is always that setting fire thing . . .

When burning dvd to disc the voice and picture are out of sink, im using imtoo dvd creator 3.

If you are using VBR this will sometimes cause audio synch error (especially on standalone player playback) use Gspot or Mediainfo to see what the file you are trying to convert is encoded in it will be either CBR or VBR.

check out more advice on AVI and DivX here; if you use AVIdemux (
you can shift the audio lag and remux it before you convert it to a DVD.

Hello sir/mam, as i analyze you problem, there are several points that may cause these problem, 1. your hard drive might have bad sectors that at a point the heads of the hard drive have difficulties reading the information thus cuasing the sound and lag of screen to become distorted. so i suggest you regularly scan for bad sectors. 2. its a long shot, it may be your software, you have to reinstall the porgram where you saw the lag. if every thing else fails, if its not a hassle, reinstall your OS and work with a fresh copy of programs on your laptop. if you have anymore questions, let me know. thanks

Audio Distortion after System Crash

sorry for the late reply. im using windows. im quite sure that there's no virus involved with the distortion of my sound. this is what happened.

1. im surfing the net while listening to music(full volume)
2.)then suddenly the sound gets a bit distorted(jumps,skips)
3.)then everything hangs up which forced me to reboot
4.)the windows loading screen became too long(like 5mins) before it takes me to the main desktop(start up programs loads like 48 years also).
5.)when i play music ,the sound is very much(like alien,"rrrrrrr")

i tried reinstalling the drivers but nothing was fixed. i've even tried Regcure.

i just formatted my notebook and voila its back to normal.
i dunno but i think playing loud music using laptop, or in my case notebook speakers would cause this problem. im using external speakers now and i've got no problems. i just hope that there would be a fix to this problem so that i wont have to reformat if the problem occurs again
