Choppy DVD/Video playback

by tinytony / December 17, 2004 4:01 AM PST

Greetings, Can anyone help please? I am running WinXP home with Microsoft SP2. When I try to play a DVD it is very choppy, I get the same reuslt when I try and play movie clips on-line. I have a Toshiba DVD-ROM SD-R1102 and have installed Media Player 10, I also have InterActual DVD player software installed (and upgraded) I have been told that I need to increase the graphics setting in the BIOS, as I am unable to access the BIOS setup I was wondering if there is another way of improving playback or should I replace the DVD-ROM
and or the graphics card? Thank you in advance. Happy Holidays!!

I think I would look at what programs are running on your

machine and why. You do not say how fast it is, but I assume it's relatively new so that speed should not be an issue. You need to look for spyware and/or viruses. Are you running a firewall, and virus protection?

Thanks for that Kiddpeat. I have just checked my graphics card and it is only running 8MB so I think maybe problem lays in that direction. I have 512MB RAM and 26GB HD(18GB spare) and my lttle 'puter is 3 years old, but I would still like to hear what you guys think. Thanks again Folks.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
