Question about Computers & Internet

Pre-rendered graphics are choppy, loading screens are slow, CPU usage boosts up to %50 or higher, other problems may be present. Using a PCI-E GeForce 9600 512mb DDR3 graphics card, AMD Athlon Dual Core Processor 2.4ghz, and 2 gigs of DDR2 PC 6400 memory. Used to be faster, but for some reason as of yesterday it was really slow :/

Hi there

I have three solutions to your problem.
1) You can press "Start" then "All Programs" then "Accessories" then "System Tools" and the last step is to choose "System Restore". This will change any new settings to old settings, by doing this you will not lose any data such as saved files and downloaded pictures or music.

2) You can press "Start" then "All Programs" then "Accessories" then "System Tools" and the last step is to choose "Disk Cleanup". This will take you to a program that will show you all your programs that you do not use and you can select which programs you would like to delete, this will make more space on your hard-drive which in return should make you pc faster

3) You can press "Start" then "All Programs" then "Accessories" then "System Tools" and the last step is to choose "Disk Defragmenter". This will defrag your pc, which will also make your pc faster.

I would suggest that you do all three of these solutions and please also remember to give me a good rating on my profile.

Kind regards - Hope this helps you!

Pc is choppy audio and video


Assuming that you are watching video in a web browser, there are several possibilities. A lot of video on the web uses Flash Player for rendering, so make sure you are using the latest version which fixes security issues and performance problems. You may also want to clear your Flash cache as well as your web browser's cache files, especially if you are seeing a lot of hard disk activity when this is happening. You may also want to consider cleaning out all of the Windows temp files and directories as well as defragmenting your hard disk.

On a low-bandwidth connection, you may also encounter issues related to buffering. If the player allows changing the size of the buffer, you may want to enlarge it. It will cause the media stream to pull more content before it tries to play it and when there is an interruption in the stream, it has more time to pull more data before the buffer completely empties.

You should also use Task Manager to see how much of your total RAM is being used and page file usage. If you are using a lot of RAM and the system is paging, it will slow down everything but the most obvious ends up being choppy or distorted multimedia playback. If either of these are the case, you may want to add more RAM or reduce the number of currently running processes. Background process can consume a lot of memory or CPU cycles that interfere with your foreground process.

How to Protect PC from Overheating?


Laptop over heating which is also known as Thermal Overload.This is mainly due to excess usage of CPU(More than 60%) for a long time.


To check CPU usage Right click on Task Bar>Select Start Task Manager>Performance.

or

Shortcut Ctrl+Shift+Esc

If your CPU usage is more than 50% you need to close some applications which are using 20++% CPU.
To check application which are using 20++% CPU
Right click on Task Bar>Select Start Task Manager> Processes
Search in this dialog box for programs which are using 30++% CPU
Have a look.......hjlava_3.jpg






You need to close this application to prevent PC from over heating.Actually %age usage indicates load to CPU by the application.If load is to much CPU is to processes at faster speed which in turn increases temperature of CPU.

To close the program select the program,and select End Process.



If didn't found any program using 30++% CPU in this dialog box.
Select Show process from all users. and search in this dialog box and close the program.

Caution:some times your system also uses 30++% CPU inn some processes like anti virus scanning,at this if you closed the program your PC may shutdown.At this time you need to restart the PC.

This usually happens for out dated anti virus or incompatible programs.

There are some other factors like Graphics Properties and Graphic Memory,Display size, Processor type,etc.At this time its better top use a cooling pad.




Some program like camera drivers,Simulation softwares,games uses 50+% CPU.This is common these programs need to process large amount of data at short interval time which increases CPU usage but this is normal.


The processors properties are tested at 140*c so no need to worry.If the CPU exceeds the limited temperature PC will shuts down automatically,and after cooling you need to start the PC.
Thank you...:)

ANY SUGGESTIONS...?

My dell is too slow even if i am playing computer games. why?


Your Dell laptop has low RAM/high CPU usage, a lot of games tend to use high CPU, so your laptop could be a little old for newer games, so you should upgrade it, or you have a lot of files on your laptop and maybe you opened to much high CPU usage programs.

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.

Blue screen and video freezes while playing World of Warcraft


Ok so you get a blue screen of death, this means that you PC is running far too hot. It needs to be cleaned of dust, so that the fans cooling your computer components can effieciently do their job.
Click here to download a hardware monitor program. CPU temps should be no higher than 50 degrees centigrade. Remember the cooler your PC runs, the longer it's going to live.
Clean your RAM modules with cotten or tissue paper.
Clean the CPU cooler.

Your timeous rating of this solution is much appreciated. Thumbs up

My PC freezes (screen,disply, mouse) when working with Pinnacle Studio 14. The PC is brand new and quite powerfull so there should be no problem with CPU, memory or graphic (showing low load). Anybody...


Everyone using ANY thing Pinnacle related has this problem...

Think of using Pinnacle like trying to teach an autistic kid.
*You have to do EVERYTHING very slowly and carefully, and wait forever while it sinks it (renders the clips).

My rdp is running slow especially on graphics. Any idea how to accelerate? is there a software out there that can do that?


Slow performance of graphics and video is a very common issue when using RDP. I recommend you look at Ericom Blaze, a software product that accelerates AND compresses standard Microsoft RDP, so it speeds RDP while conserving bandwidth. Blaze accelerates RDP performance by as much as 10-25 times, and helps deliver higher frame rates and reduce screen freezes and choppiness.

You can read more about Blaze and download a free evaluation at:

Or view a video demo at:

Hope this helps.

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.

About graphic card


most top-end cards will work with your computer and boost performance a bit but... your CPU and the (these days) very low amount of RAM (for e.g. this little laptop I'm using has 3 GIG of ram) would NOT enable you to play the (latest) games... if you got them to run at all they would be mind-numbingly slow.

Biggest performance boost you could give your computer and help towards playing latest games would be more RAM.. as much as you can fit in. More RAM is the best upgrade you can give a computer
