That may be your network connection or your cpu load. I'm going to say your cpu.

On a older laptop like that the cpu can run out of power when playing video's. The extra ram should have made some improvement for other things and helped a bit with the video.

First we want to do ctrl-alt delete to bring up your task manager. Look at the CPU usage number. With nothing else running it should be 0-1% maybe as high as 2% then drop to zero. Anything higher than that and you have too much running. If you click on the top of the colom where it says CPU it will sort by cpu use. You may have to scroll up or down to get to the big numbers, most should show zero. The big number should be system idle at say 95%+ followed the task manger taking up most of the rest. Usually what happens on older machines is they don;t have the extra horsepower to cope with all the new programs demands so they bog down. So what you can do to help this is to stop anything that you don't need from running. These are things like speed loaders or auto updates. For example if you run office or use adobe products you don;t need to have it load a speed loader (which doesn;t really seem to speed up anything) everytime. If you look at what is in the start-all programs-startup these are things that are loaded at startup. Removing things from here will stop them from auto starting. If you don;t know what these things are chances are you never use them. If you drag them out of the startup to the previous menu you can still manually start them.

Next make sure you don;t have any messengers running. Most seem to set themselves up to load with windows. Some like MSN are bad for loading the cpu. So under the options for those uncheck load at windows startup.

And last you may be running a antivirus program. These are also pretty hard on the cpu. Usually there is an icon near the clock. If you right click on it there is usually a menu selection that will turn off (or back on) the antivirus program . It should restart when you reboot.

You may also want to see if there are any other programs or managers such as print mamagers or other programs that want to load at boot. Either disable these from auto starting or exit from them before trying to watch.

Those are the easy things to try to speed things up. I have a old compaq I use for watching videos from time to time that is about the same as yours. These are the tricks I use to watch youtube vids. When I don;t turn them off etc I had the same symptoms.

The most likely problem is that you are either, buffering from an internet feed (slow internet) or you are overloading the processor. The Pinball would indicate that your processor is too slow. Buy a new graphics card or more RAM. Also run CCleaner to get rid of any rubbish that is slowing down the computer.

Probably not a power issue if games play ok.
Could be your computer processor is too slow, not enough ram, driver settings, video codecs, graphics drivers or combination of any of them.

I cant play some blu-ray disc how can i get some of them to work


since it doesn't have enough RAM in it, some BDs or larger multi-layer DVDs fail to play/load entirely Its slow to buffer BD, and even slower to upscale DVDs. It doesn't support homemade DVD+/-R movies. It also doesn't support video on CD.

SOLUTION:
to get the movie to play add a 4GB SD card into it and format it for use as extra memory. Apparently, some BDs require a lot of memory. By adding the SD card, DVDs and THE BDs load faster and have no play problems. The overall downside to the RAM issues and the SD card is that, when the SD card gets full,you will have to reformat it to get anything to play. Tho, all lost disc info needs to be rebuffered onto the card the next time you watch the movie.

Hard shift when accelerating and slowing down


Check your transmission fluid level when the engine is running and the car is in 'park'. add extra appropriate fluid as necessary via the dipstick tube. When 'max' is reached I think you will notice a return to normal shift operation.

MY VIDEO AND AUDIO WILL NOT PLAY RIGHT , WHEN I CLICK ON A VIDEO THE SOUND STOPS AND STARTS AND SO DOES THE AUDIO


Sounds like a bus thruput problem. you probably have too much happening on your computer and/or not enough ram and cpu resources. You can beef up your video card by replacing the one thats in it already with a high end card, and add extra ram to your machine. Most pentium 4 machines at 1.4ghz or higher can play videos on windows XP while running 1 gig of ram on an nvidia 7500 or higher gpu with 128 dedicated gpu ram on-card. Basically, your computer is choking on the data and it cannot produce it fast enough to play smoothly. you need to upgrade your pc to gain additional cpu resources. Best option is speak with a pc shop to see about upgrades.

Slow and choppy karaoke video from my laptop


Orginally your unit comes with 256MB of RAM wit a shared 64MB of VGA. If you haven't added any RAM yet, then I suggest upgrade it by adding another 512MB or 1 GB of DDR PC2700.


Hope this helps.
If it does please vote. Thanks!
