I have had this issue for a little while now and it is just getting old. When I play a video feed from online, it is choppy and skips, with the video AND the audio not playing smoothly. The only clips that aren't really affected are most of the YouTube ones. Even my Media Player that I use to play music, the graphic thingy (ambience I think it's called) is choppy and doesn't play smoothly. And my DVD player doesn't play smoothly as well, and that is not even related to the online video issue. I have tried the following: Going through and deleting the .tmp files Running all 3 of my virus and spyware removal programs Defraging Disk Cleanup I also went through my music player and deleted songs and albums that I don't listen to as often and put them on my jumpdrive to save them. I made sure all my updates have been downloaded and installed. I even deleted some games that I had installed that I don't play anymore or I have lost the CD for it and can't play it anyway. It helped a little, but my DVD player still runs slow and fragmented. It only did this before if the laptop got too warm and the airflow around the fan was restricted. The only thing I can think of is the volume of pictures from my digital camera that I have on here. But there aren't that much more than what I had say, at the 6 months ago, and this problem started before that. Can anyone suggest anything? Thanks in advance!
