  1. When watching movies on line or off line my pc starts to make a stuttering sound and freezes at first i thought it was to do with over heating so brought new processor and fan did a total reinstall but the problem persists, if anyone can help me with what i hope to be a really simple problem i'd be indebted. thank you. :grinthumb

    Hi

    we need some more information, such as PC specs, does it only do it on movies, it could be a simple thing like a missing or bad codec or a memory error.
