Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

My computer will not play vidios it just plays alittleand then stops and then in about 5 seconds it starts again


Answers :

Sounds like it's "too hard" for your computer to play the videos. Are non-HD videos work fine?
To begin with, uninstall any codecs installed on your computer. Restart, then install K-Lite Codec Pack.

If the problem persists, follow these steps, each one at a time:
* Check the CPU temperature (easiest way - in the BIOS). If it's around 50*C or above - you need to clean/replace the heatsink/CPU fan.
* Check for faulty memory modules. you can use this tool for the job: MemTest86+
If a faulty module's found - replace it. In any case, a total of at least 1GB in recommended these days.
* Check for defective graphic adapter. Use this software: 3DMark

Good luck
