Problems with audio and video on windows xp home on acer aspire 5610
Until recently I was able to listen to music and watch videos without a problem in this configuration: Complete configuration: Dual Core and 1 GB memory At first I thought it was a memory or processor problem, but after claning up both disk space and background processes I have plenty of free RAM and process space. The problem is that there is a tremendous slowdown of sound and video with a few spurts of the right speed. I have tried using WINAMP, WM and ACER's builtin system and on all of them no matter what the priority is set for playback I get teh same problem. Also youtube and other web streaming sites suffer the same way,.

I had a simliar problem and found it was caused by having too many different media player programs. They were all set to be the default player for everything. You might want to make sure only one of your media players is really set to be the default.

simply visit Acer's website and search for the support drivers under product support and downloads. just choose the correct model of your laptop in the list they provided so that you will get the required drivers for downloading.
You will be amazed on how acer's website (US) is so easy to use in finding the drivers you need. I have searched the driver's page for your model. Just click HERE

Interesting problem. Have you tried installing another internet browser such as Mozilla Firefox? I love Firefox it saves my tabs/open webpages if I select that option when I shut down the PC even if your PC crashes 90% of the time it will have your tabs/pages saved. The only problems I have experienced with Firefox (minor issue) is some websites hosting videos that are "save as" won't download but this happens rarely. Firefox is also
less vulnerable to phishing and hacking according to the Mozilla website http://www.mozilla.org/
I have had nothing but problems with Windows Vista since I got my Acer Aspire 5610. It crashes daily or 1-2 times a week. I have heard Windows Vista Premium is a better version, but haven't tried it. I know you can purchase installer discs from Acer on their webpage but don't know if you can get them in Windows XP. I have considered dumping the Vista and paying to get XP installed instead.
you can use windows movie maker to record a video its working on my xp but ihavent tried it on vista but you can use acer arcade delxeule it supports windows vista and xp you can find it on the cd which comes with your laptop if all this doesnt works run an acer e recovery
