Hold crtl+shift+esc and tell me the list of everything under the processes tab.  You can resize the task manager window til it shows all of them without the slider.  Hit Ctrl+Print Screen to copy your screen.  Then start run mspaint and hit Ctrl+V to paste it.  Save it on your desktop as rscraig2screen.jpg and post the image on my google group.  Click +add file next to Files.  It will tell me when it's loaded.  Have you run spybot or AdAware(NOT AdWare!)?  Do you have an integrated video port or is it a card?

Youtube will play then stop over and over what is the problem


that means the video is still trying to download while you're watching it. Try moving to a spot with better Internet connection. I usually hit pause on the video, let it download completely then watch it

I just bought this laptop yesterday, and ever since then every time i play download a movie or watch a video on you tube it stops and plays, stops and plays. what do i do?


Hello

OK, this does not have any thing to do with your laptop itself. This is actually due to your internet connection. The videos will stop an play if they are buffered far enough, hence, if the video plays faster than it can buffer, it will stop until is is buffered far enough.

The solution for this problem can be to upgrade your internet connection.

Hope this can be of help, if this was nor what you were looking for, let me know so we can try something else.

Kind regards

The videos play but stop every 2 seconds then play again. I have no problem loading or doing anything else on my computer but watching videos.


Hi,
Before we can give you any troubleshooting steps wanted to confirm
1. Are you playing online videos or from cds or DVDs?
2. When did the problem start ?

Thanks

Video's on the web skip and stop instead of playing straight through. A 3 min video can take 10 minutes to watch????


While starting to play a YouTube video, press the PAUSE button.
Wait 2 minutes, and press the PLAY button.

If it plays "smoothly", then the only problem is the speed of your Internet connection. For example, if you have a teenage son,
and supply him with only one cheese-burger per day, he will complain that you are "starving" him. If you supply him more quickly, i.e., more burgers per day, he will stop complaining.
Similarly, a faster Internet connection will smooth-out your videos,
because the download is supplying data faster than your video-player is "consuming" the data.

Videos wont play


Was the direct lan still through the Belkin router? Plug straight in to your cable, dsl, satellite modem and see how the video is. Next try pcpitstop.com and run a full test. Might just need to wipe temporary internet files or whatever that full test says. N/M their defrag if you have at least 1/2 of your harddrive empty..they always say that.
