I've had this laptop for about a year now and it just recently started doing something really weird. I have a bunch of episodes of MST3K on the laptop, which I watch at night by hooking it up to my tv. It's always worked just fine. Recently, after finishing an episode (that worked fine!), I closed the media player and opened up the next episode. That episode inexplicably skipped every few seconds, and sometimes the audio went crazy as well. To determine whether it was the computer or the file, I reopened the file I had just watched all the way through...and it did the same thing! After fighting with it for quite a while, I gave up. Every media player did the same thing (or had slightly differing problems), and every file was the same. The next night I opened up the episode again...and it worked just fine! Confused, but happy, I watched the episode and then moved on to the next...only to have the same problem crop up again! Does this problem make any sense to anyone? Is there something (a virus maybe?) in particular that I should be looking for? Thanks!
