Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I've been having a problem where my mouse lags at random times, but I mostly notice it when there is another process, i.e. youtube, video, sony vegas, photoshop, microsoft word. I've tried setting the mouse's process priority to high, tried lowering and raising the sensitivity and resolution. I dusted out the internals and checked all the connections, tried rebooting my computer multiple times, this solves it for a while but it gets worse as time passes. I updated all my drivers, specifically for my EAH4800 512mb video card and my AMD Phenom Quad core black edition CPU. I tried different surfaces, different mice (I have an HP 2.4ghz wireless optical mobile mouse and a logitech optical wireless optical mouse) I am running windows 7 home premium. As a side note I am using AMD overdrive and ATI catalyst control center.

Hello,
Don't you have a virus or spyware, maybe that uses your CPU 100%? You should check your system with Malwarebytes for example and first of all take a look at CPU usage history from Task Manager.

    I checked and no, I'm using Kaspersky which uses 7% of the CPU, and at the most its used 10% I also tried disabling it for a while, the mouse started skipping around 5 minutes afterwards

    If possible test your PC with a PS2 mouse (in case you have such connection). I would also boot from a Hirens cd (Mini Mindows XP) or an Ubuntu live CD from example and test mouse activity. Also check for bios update or at least you can reset your bios settings in case that problem is coming from motherboard, it can help.

Toshiba Dynadock 3.0 mouse and screen lag


You are right, it should not...Check your device manager and see if there is any problem listed there (the little yellow exclamation mark) against the Dynadock. Also check on Windows site if your device is listed as compatible with Win 8 ... Just some ideas, hard to tell just by description.

Game slowing down at random times


  • Many users while playing a game on there computer seem to notice that it slows down at random times throughout game-play, This common on most computer as users seem to forget about other applications running on there computer.
  • If your CPU is not fast enough and you are running many applications while your game is running you will notice the game isn't responding as fast as it should, The best way to solve this is disable all programs which you are not using including MSN messenger and any browser or File sharing/Torrent Application.
  • Also make sure your anti-virus is configured not to scan automatically otherwise it may start scanning while you are in game and cause dramatic lag, Most anti-virus's will provide an gamers profile which you can activate to prevent certain anti-virus features while you are playing your game.

High DPC Latency


High DPC Latency WHAT OS???????????????????
what Zd8000 is this, full model name on the service tag.
pC come in submodels, mine has 6 processor choices, ram size and video GPU chips,. offered on one submodel.
we cant guess what PC you have, nor its upgrades
nor what OS you are running. NOW, nor what it came with new.

id bet it's infected , run ESET, off line scanner yet, its FREE
If XP it for sure is INFECTED, as ALL are now. XP is dead now.
no support for 3 long years, and is a virus magnet.
and very very powerful.
and run full Malwarebytes, next.
if it ran before, and not now, it is infected.
or overheating.
or got tons of startup progs, loaded ,
what is the service tag data.
are you running the original HP software?
that means not upgraded to w10.
nor using MS disks to install OS , only HP works right or f11 key
reinstalls.
lag. (tests that help prove what it might be)
  1. lags on playing C: test.wav file>
  2. lags playing C: test.mp3/?
  3. lags if you click test windows sounds, in CP + sound
  4. LAGS OFF DVD MOVIE?
  5. LAGS ONLY ON OLINE
  6. LAGS ON ms solitaire?
  7. lags on DVD loaded local games?
  8. lags only on steam games....
  9. lags only on live web games
  10. my guess is it lags from even just sounds. (even music online or off line, not just Video lag, as all on line videos can do.
  11. even my netflix lags on my TV with 200mbs/ fiber. (and has nothing to do with my systems, its the internet or netflix caused.

The DPC spikes, my guess are software overload.
too many things running or
how many cores is your processor have?
i looked up on pc like yours,
it had and old Pentium 4.
ATI Mobility Radeon X600 with 256MB dedicated
are you on wifi or fast broad band, with ethernet direct connect./.
but this pc has no gigalan jack, oops, that be bad.
running XP are you>?

first try this on this old dog pc

in the start box. type, msconfig.
then see startup tab
then shut them all off for a test.
see if runs ok now.
why not show one example in detail that fails
show slow video link online. a youtube.
or better , name a game that runs slow or lags
nAME JUST ONE Thing,
tell where it resides.
1: HDD , folder. local.
2: CD/ or DVD drive.
3: online, games.

we cant guess what you do exactly so please say so.

what Id do with this pC
is give it to GOODWILL (tm) then walk over to the newer Laptops
and get one with w7 or newer
and WIN !

Just bought an led tv .my wii was fine with tube tv now its controls are delayed.can it be fixed


The lag comes fr0m the digital picture processing.
Most televisions have a video game mode which can adjust the delay in rendering video from games. See if your television has a video game mode.
If not, a number of games that depends heavily on timing have a "Calibrate" mode to adjust to the delay on the TV. This is most common in rhythm games like Rock Band or Dance Dance Revolution. Look for the calibrate mode.
You can Google "Wii lag " for more info.

When playing utube it pauses every 2 seconds


If the videos on YouTube are buffering (pausing) every few second it is more than likely that you internet connection is running a little slow. This is one of the causes of poor video viewing from site such as YouTube.
It could be that its a busy time of day for your ISP and you may find that at a different time of day you will not have a problem.
The best thing to do is monitor this over the next day or two and see if you notice a difference.
Hope this helps you out.

Mouse lagging and webpages slow to load. Typing doesn't keep up. Sometimes start-up does not complete and I have to turn off and on computer. Already reinstalled c: drive to factory settings. Problem...


This is a ram lacking issue typical to netbooks. With integrated video comes the robbery of onboard ram to support it. Most netbooks allow/are built to handle 1g of ram and therefore allocate only so much to video allowance. As this is used, especially when web browsing, your screen/video will give where it can, typecast, mouse placement, whatever it needs to to make the web image as nice as possible. Sad but true, comp distributers are paid well by web broadcasters to make their PCs show the internet as crisp and clean as possible, so the performance will lack in function before visual every time. I don't know what netbook that is in the pic exactly, but I'm using an Acer Aspire D-150 with 2g of ram, and even with expandable allocation of ram as my video needs it, I still get the same issue. I do apologize.

Lag problem - Guitar Hero / Wii / Philips 32PF5321/10 tv


Usually the video lags behind the audio. The reason is the video, in many TVs, takes longer to process than the audio coming direct from the device. To solve this, the audio needs to be delayed. This can be done by 1. Using the tv audio output. Most TVs sync the audio to the picture and this 'synced' audio is available at the output jack of the tv. 2. Delay the audio coming out of the device. Many home receivers have a 'Lipsync' feature designed for this issue. The setting is usually between 50 to 500 milliseconds of delay, depending on the TVs video processing time.
I hope this is clear and can help.

Inspiron B130 laggy video and sound.


I'd recommend the latest video drivers- and strangely enough- defragging the hard drive. Most laggy systems I've seen with plenty of ram (512 or more) that have no spyware on them, and no major ram eaters (norton, spysweeper, mcafee) are fragmented. look in task manager (ctl, alt del) and see how much free ram you have- and see what is using all of it. If you have a lot of ram, and no process is chewing up the ram, or the cpu- then defrag the hard drive.
