Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Computer slows down after ten minutes of watching video

\015 My computer slows down after about ten minutes of watching video, i have only tried watching video online so far, but it will run fine for about ten minutes then the picture will get more and more jumpy and eventually freeze, the audio will continue fine however. then when i exit the video because it is just not worth watching the whole system runs slowly for about another ten minutes or until i restart the system then it runs perfectly. I am running windows xp professional, i upgraded from xp a couple of weeks ago ( i did a clean install, formatted the drive etc. I am not sure if it could be drivers etc. because i never had this problem when running xp) It is a iqon laptop with 448MB of RAM and a 'Celeron M' processor I also have service pack 3 installed along with windows atuomatic updates running.I also thought that the fault may have been with internet explorer 8 but i switched to firefox and still got the same result. I am more than happy with the laptops preformace apart from this.Thank you in advance for your reply if you have any questions or suggestions it would be greatly appreciated thank you.\015

I've been experiencing audio and video problems for the last few weeks and have tried just about everything to resolve this matter.

It takes about 5 minutes to watch a 1 minute clip. When I attempt to listen to other music or hear sounds, I only hear a scratchy noise from the speakers.

My HP Pavilion dv9700 was over heating and would shut off. Then it wasn't over heating and would shut off. Now it won't turn on at all. The power cord is working and the lights go on for a second while I am pushing the button to turn it on, but the computer won't turn on. HP told me the problem was the motherboard. Do you think that's really the problem or could it be something else?
