I had to pull back to 720p.

The deal with the internet is you have more work to do. That is, you have a smaller pipe for the video data and it's often compressed more. The quick fix is to play the 720p stream.

As Bob already said.

It's beyond what the hardware can do. You can't drive 180 Mph in a Chevy either; then you need a Ferrari.

I know a lot abt cars too, I watched Top Gear for 12 yrs.
Actually I wanna try can i overclock my cpu to get it to work.
Coz i use System Explorer to monitor my processor every time n I found that my N2600 is running on 100% full power when playing 1080p online steaming.

Overclocking a laptop ...

Overclocking

Yea I know overclocking will reduce the lifespan of my processor n more heat, but it certainly brings more speed to my netbook.

Then go right ahead.

But I've yet to see anyone in these forums discuss how to do such things.

I wonder if the BIOS and this CPU support overclocking. But it's worth a try, of course. Can you tell us about the results?

*It's nth do with my network

You're right.
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / September 12, 2012 1:19 AM PDT

It has everything to do with all it has to do when streaming. I never said it had to do with the network. I wrote there was more to do when streaming.

See the CPU load?

Watch the processor's current percentage used.
