Question about HP Pavilion a305w (DM181AR) PC Desktop

Bad picture when viewing videos on internet

The picture is distorted, and the video runs really slow, and choppy.I know it's not the media player because when I try and run a flash video, it runs just as bad. I've change the screen resolution, and just about any other setting I could think of. But nothing has really helped. I'm not sure if the product I chose is right. On the front of the tower it says HP Pavilion, and has 4530 on the bottom of the front.

Slow upload of pics and videos on my pc


I would start by clearing out your cookies, then I would do a disk defragment to clear out old stuff your computer is loading. If you have desktop widgets or are running programs that take up a lot of memory.
Go to Start, Control panel, internet options, and click to delete temporary files and then after go into programs, accessories and disc defragment. Hope it helps!

The picture on my computer keeps freezing


I assume you mean video, pictures are stand still viewing anyway. There are a few reasons why this may be happening. 1. Low Bandwidth 2. Computer Overheated3. Graphics Card or memory lacking 4. Hard Disk May Be At Limit5. Cluttered Files "Defrag Needed"The Internet is a large part of video processing which can mean if the bandwidth is slow or is throttled which a lot of companies are doing these days. Throttling means slowing your bandwidth access down for two much usage even know companies will not tell you they are doing this it is the newest problem we are facing thanks to hackers who steal off the Internet for profit. Companies have banned together to stop this and regulated their customers so that everyone has equal share of the Internet. It is part of what several companies think is the solution and guess what the customer has to pay for it.
The best way to find out is to go and do a speed test to see if your company is giving you the promised bandwidth allocation. If they are not you may want to contact them or find a better service. This is affecting video viewing as well as browsing speeds. Click Here to test your speed.
Your computer may be getting overheated? Go ahead and open the case and take a peak inside it will not hurt you. Touch a piece of metal on the chassis before going into the box with your hand. Look at the CPU the thing with the fan on top of it. How does the fan look cluttered with dust? If this is the case you may want to clean the fan as well as the base below it these get packed with dust over time and cause blockage from air being able to flow down to cool the CPU. Packed dust is not only a fire hazard, I have seen many burnt up good expensive boards no good anymore because of dust buildup. Mainly in laptops this will cause parts that are soldered to become weak, they will eventually crack video card are really a problem especially with laptops if moved around while hot you could begin to start seeing things choppy on a screen.
Hard disc may be getting full as well check that by ticking My Computer then tick on your hard disc C:\ to see what is left on the drive. Clean out defrag unwanted software, files, things of this nature to clean the clutter. Your video card may need to be upgraded. Any video card these days that is below 128 is going to be slow running or choppy.
This is just a little information for you to look into if you keep these areas in check your computer will run good all the time and handle just about anything processed in today's computing world. A good software program for this "Free" is Ccleaner you can download it free at ccleaner.com....John

Choppy Video? What do you mean choppy video? Is the video starting and stopping rather than playing continuous? If so, either you need more memory or the site you are watching the video from is slow. Also sometimes you line speed on the computer might be slow if you are watching the video online.

How does the video play if you played a DvD in your computer? If it plays the DvD without stalling, then your problem is more than like the site you are watching or the line speed as you stream the video.

Choppy playback, keeps stopping to load


Your Internet connection is too slow.
So, your media-player is getting "starved", and thus must "wait" for more content to be downloaded.
Upgrade the speed of your Internet connection, or connect to higher-speed web-servers, such as YouTube.

This machine is very slow and choppy when it comes to video editing & playback - any suggestions?


Without knowing the system/hardware configuration and softwares installed on your computer/emachine, it's not possible to assume which is the root of the problem. If you haven't upgraded the memory, i would suggest you to do it upto 2gb. Windows xp would run fine with adobe premiere and adobe photoshop, windows media player should not be having any problem if you are upto date with the codecs. Please also check the virtual memory and make it double the memory installed on your system. Uninstall unnecessary programs/applications, it's also important to run system registry cleaning everyday or every alternate day. I would suggest you to run a defragmentation every week so that there's no fragmented files. Run an full antivirus scan using an updated antivirus every possible days.
Good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa

I just upgraded my PC 300PL IBM computer's RAM from 128 MB, to 256 MB on each slot (3 slotes), When i watch videos from my pc, or videos from online sites, The playback is slow and choppy. I was wondering...


The problem is that the video-player on your computer is "starving" for audio/video, because your download-speed is not fast-enough to "feed" the stream.

So, when a video starts to play, click PAUSE, and wait for the download to proceed for a while; then, click PLAY, to view the already-downloaded stream.

Adobe Flash Player stops and starts in all browsers


This is what TouTube has to say:
: Choppy video If a video doesn't play continuously, it may be due to your connection speed. You'll need a broadband connection with at least 500+Kbps for the best viewing experience. Another possible reason for choppy video playback is that our servers are experiencing high traffic. If this is the case, there's not much you can do. However, we are continuously adding servers to keep up with demand and improve your experience on our site. It's also possible that your video download speed is slow or inconsistent. In this case, you can try pausing the video until the entire stream is downloaded and then playing the video. Occasionally, an incomplete copy of a video can get stuck in your cache and never fully download. You can re-attempt the download by clearing your browser's cache. You'll find steps on how to do this listed here. if(document.getElementById('kb_ie7') != null) showLayer('kb_ie7'); if(document.getElementById('kb_ie7_win') != null) showLayer('kb_ie7_win'); if(document.getElementById('z_ie7') != null) toggleZippy('z_ie7'); if(document.getElementById('z_ie7_win') != null) toggleZippy('z_ie7_win'); if(document.getElementById('kb_ie') != null) showLayer('kb_ie'); if(document.getElementById('kb_ie_win') != null) showLayer('kb_ie_win'); if(document.getElementById('z_ie') != null) toggleZippy('z_ie'); if(document.getElementById('z_ie_win') != null) toggleZippy('z_ie_win'); if(document.getElementById('kb_win')) showLayer('kb_win'); if(document.getElementById('z_win')) toggleZippy('z_win'); if(document.getElementById('kb_winvista')) showLayer('kb_winvista'); if(document.getElementById('z_winvista')) toggleZippy('z_winvista'); if(document.getElementById('kb_ZA')) showLayer('kb_ZA'); if(document.getElementById('z_ZA')) toggleZippy('z_ZA'); if(document.getElementById('kb_non_US')) showLayer('kb_non_US'); if(document.getElementById('z_non_US')) toggleZippy('z_non_US');
