Question about Dell (1G163) Modem
While listening to Yahoo radio the music keeps having pauses in the song while playing. It plays the song then it stops then plays more and stops etc etc. How do I fix this problem?
The problem may also be that you have too many temporary internet files stored. These are normal files that are stored when you visit a website so when you come back to that site, the pages load much faster. They leave some of the website's information on your computer so it doesn't have as much to download when you return.
Try (for VISTA users) going to START>Control Panel>System and Maintenance> and right under the "Administrative Tools" headline you'll find "Free Up Disk Space" click that and it'll ask you what drive you'd like to clean up, select the drive you want (usually drive "C") and click ok, when it finishes figuring out how much space it will free up, make sure all the check boxes are checked in the window that pops up, especially the one marked "Temporary Internet Files" and click ok. This may take some time if it's the first time you're doing this so just be patient and let it do it's thing. After it's complete, it will automatically close and you can try the Yahoo! Radio again.
If you are on XP (or VISTA), you should be able to find "Disk Cleanup" in START>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Cleanup. Then follow the same procedure as before, choose the disk (usually "C") then click ok, check all the boxes, then click ok.
Because Yahoo! Radio uses streaming media, it's trying to download the song at the same time it's playing and there's no room left in the temporary internet file folder so it has to play catch up the whole time, that's why it'll stutter.
If you go through all of that and you are still having a problem, let us know with a comment to this thread so we know what we've done so far and we'll try to help you out again. If it is your internet connection, you should have had this problem since you got the internet and it wouldn't be a new problem, but if it has been like this the whole time, you don't have enough bandwith to handle that much streaming and downloading at once. If that's the case, I'm sorry but the only thing you can do is upgrade your internet connection. First, try my suggestion.
Good luck and don't forget to rate! Thank you!
