I just got a new laptop and HP tech support has not been able to solve my problem so I am turning to you guys. The audio and video has a glitching/lagging effect when I am connect to the internet via WLAN card. But it is not the internet itself; because whether I am watching/listening to something over the internet or watching a DVD from the dvd drive, or listening to something from an outside source (USB stick)--as long as ther is an internet connection running in the background I have this problem. About every 60 seconds staticy noise and slight lagging in the video occur and lasts for about 4-6 seconds. This will continue for as long as I am trying to watch or listen to something and being connected to the internet. However, as soon as I turn off the wireless adapter (with a switch on the front of the laptop, or by manual disconnecting) the problem goes away instantly. I have downloaded all the latest drivers for the soundcard, WiFi adapter, and the video card. Still having the problem. I am wondering if it is a hardware conflict or if there is a program conflict when connected to the internet. I have no idea!
