Unable to view videos ,news clips and feeds of any kind.HELP

by DAFONDA / July 17, 2007 1:46 PM PDT

When I log on to a website of any kind and try to view a video I can't.It reads bufferring and stops bufferring.I can hear sound and it stops I can see the video and it stops.It will start up again and stop.It takes 5 minutes to view a 30 second clip.
Someone told me to defrag my system.Did that,didn't work.
I had my laptop serviced a few months ago for a non-related issue.The motherboard was wiped clean of course.Think that has anything to do with it?
I don't care how it happened I just want it fixed.This is very frustrating.HELP ...PLEASE!

"Laptop serviced"? what do you mean by that and who did it?

Suggest you also ask whoever 'serviced' your laptop?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
