  1. Hello all, Im having a bit of troble with video playback, any video i watch either short cartoon or full movies are freezing and unfreezing like a studder, throughout the video. These are short pauses, but still annoying.
    It doesnt seem to matter with program I use to view, nero showtime, media player old and new, vlc, etc. they all do the same thing so i am assuming its the comp. Maybe drivers, althougth there up to date. these videos are all on my hard discs, and some on my main and some on storage hard drives. Any ideas?

    The bottleneck is either the disk or the processor. How short cartoons are we talking about here?

    When you look at the performance tab in task manager, what does the CPU usage graph show when the computer is idle?
