Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

1 Answer

Acer Aspire Notebook won't play videos

I can go to a site like You Tube, or Yahoo Music, and my Acer Aspire 5100 will play about 10 seconds of the video and then the video I'm playing locks up for 2-3 minutes. It keeps doing this throughout the entire video. I have high speed cable internet access so this shouldn't be happening. I use a Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router. What gives & how do I fix it.

Try these in any order. Try different browser(firefox,safari,ie), update firmware on router, make sure you have the latest codecs downloaded. I think it is probably the router a friend had the same thing happening and after doing everything including reinstalling windows it was just the router needed updated.
