Having problems with your Dell PC Laptops ?

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

\015 Why do video's (such as those on myspace or youtube) skip and stop every few seconds when playing, instead of playing straight through?\015\012I am using a dell inspiron E1750 running vista.\015

Answers :

While starting to play a YouTube video, press the PAUSE button.

\015\012If it plays "smoothly", then the only problem is the speed of your Internet connection. For example, if you have a teenage son,
\015\012and 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.
\015\012Similarly, a faster Internet connection will smooth-out your videos,
\015\012because the download is supplying data faster than your video-player is "consuming" the data.

I've been experiencing audio and video problems for the last few weeks and have tried just about everything to resolve this matter. I'm able to play all music in wmp or watch downloaded movies but I'm unable to hear Windows sounds or other internet sounds. I'm unable to watch Youtube videos because they play slow. 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.
