My video game plays very slow


Have you been able to play other modern games on your laptop? I'm thinking the graphics card built into the laptop simply might not be powerful enough to handle the game, unfortunately.

That particular graphics chipset has been known to not perform too well on more demanding games, even Modern Warfare 2.

Some steps you might take would be to lower some of the settings in the game. Turn off anisotropic filtering, anti-aliasing, anything you can lower to speed up gameplay. Adding RAM to your computer may also help, but I don't think you'll be able to get a completely fluid game out of that laptop sadly.

Choppy internet connection


If you are a frequent viewer of Internet-based video, then you know how frustrating it can be when streaming video doesn't play correctly. When a video is described as being "choppy," it can mean several things, including out-of-sync audio, stuttering frame rate and/or inconsistent stream speeds. However, although this term can mean several things, there are several ways to address all of these issues at once and help make your video viewing experience a bit smoother. Empty your Internet browser's cache and temporary files. Click the "Tools" menu and then select "Clear Private Data Now" (in Firefox) or "Delete Browser history" (in Internet Explorer). When you browse the Internet, your browser collects information from the websites you visit and carries this information as temporary and cache files. Too many of these files can bog down your computer, so delete them. Disable hardware acceleration. Open your computer's "Control Panel" and then click "Display." Select the "Settings" tab, click on "Advanced" and then click "Troubleshoot." Drag the hardware acceleration slider all the way to the left. This procedure can help reduce the strain on your processor, which can lead to choppy videos. Add virtual memory. If you are using Windows Vista or 7, you can add extra RAM to your computer by plugging a USB mass storage device into the computer. The operating system will automatically convert the unused space into RAM. Run your disk defragmenting utility. Click "Start" and then select "Programs." Click "System Tools" and then "Disk Defragmenter." This utility will eliminate the fragmenting of files, which could be taxing your processor.

I recently updated to windows 7....now my video on youtube as well as my own dvd's is choppy. The melody played on start-up is choppy as well as any other sound played on it.


Sound like a performance problem. Did you try updating your video and sound drivers?
You should also see if the Adobe Flash Player is properly installed as that is used for Youtube playback.

My HP dv4269us is having sound issues. when you restart the computer the start up music is choppy to begin with. There is minimal start up material under "msconfig" so it's not that. The internet works...


You can try shutting off Audio Hardware Acceleration.

Start > Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices > Advanced (Under Speaker Settings) > Performance.

Let us know
Good Luck

E-System laptop with slow dvd playback


This can be a bit of a tricky one to figure out. My initial response would be that you have another program or process that is causing your computer to play 'choppy' video. When you have a newer computer that was recently working just fine and now all of the sudden the video is choppy, it is usually due to another process using CPU cycles that are so important to video playback.

Start playing a DVD, but don't go to full-screen mode. Open the Task Manager. Right-Click on the task bar and select Task Manager. Click on the 'Processes' tab. There is a column labeled CPU, click on the heading 'CPU' twice. This will order the processes in order from highest CPU usage to lowest. The top two processes will most likely be your DVD player and the process that is causing your choppy playback.If the offending process isn't essential (i.e. anti-virus), then click on said process and then click the "End Process" button.

Hope this helps.
