Pc Lag When Video Is Paused - Unstable Browsers


I got windows 7 ultimate on my hp pavilion a few weeks ago, and since then these problems have been constantly bugging me. 1. When i first start, or open it after a short period of not using it ie8 or firefox, the pages wont load for a few minutes, and then it works fine. 2. When i pause a video, on youtube for example, the whole computer lags.

Issue With Lag In Win 7

I am running windows 7 ultimate 64 bit version, i notice that when i am playing a video in windows media player and a notification for skype or avast pops up, it causes horrible lag in the video. This is when i have it in full-screen mode, and of course the problem leaves after i shrink the size back down and move the window away from the notifications but i noticed this happen in other programs also, when the pop up notification for avast and skype pops up on top of the window. I know this is not an issue in xp or vista and wanted to know what was going on.

Random Spike / Lag Online Game

I experience random lag spike when playing online game (rf online), i'm very sure this is not fps lag because my notebook can play gtaiv smoothly and this online game is kind a very old game (2001). I never get this problem when playing with xp. Some sites suggesting to turn off the multimedia scheduler, or disable auto-config on my wireless network connection, also did change the 'network performance throttling' on registry to be ffffffff. But none of them solve the problem. Last thing i did is reinstalling windows 7 and just put the necessary driver on it just for running the game, still the resource monitor displaying lag-spike on network grap.

My notebook spec:

Model g51vx-rx05 cpu intel core 2 duo p7350 2. 0ghz memory 4gb ddr2 800mhz (2x2gb)graphics nvidia geforce gtx 260m 1gb gddr3 storage 320gb 7200 rpm os windows 7 32-bit wireless intel 802. 11 a/g/n webcam 1. 3 mega pixel wired internet 10/100 ethernet, all with newest drivers from asus support page.

Keyboard Input - Audio Output Timing Lag

I have a new dell vistro 1720 running windows 7 pro, 3 gb of memory. I've installed microsoft's virtual pc and am running a xp virtual pc because of a legacy app our business requires. It's all running great except for a timing skip/lag in the keyboard input and audio output. I don't mind the audio skips but a one or two second delay in displaying what i'm typing is bothersome. I've increased the amount of allocated memory to the virtual pc and reset the process priority to high with no discernible difference. Any ideas?

Network Unstable

1. Windows 7 unable to see other windows although all are set to the same network. But manually typing the computer name on the browser is ok. Its unstable, sometimes can see but most of the time you cant.

2. Printer xerox phaser 3124 connected to win7 x64 & shared out among users. Whenever other win7 prints, after 1 print out it shows off-line. Then we need to go to print spooler to restart but this doesn't happen to other windows.

Roxio Intermittent Interruption - Cd Drive Unstable

With factory installed windows 7 and roxio 1. 01, when a cd is playing, clicking on the roxio icon causes the music to be intermittently interrupted and the cd drive to go unstable. New dell studio 1555 with factory installed windows 7 and roxio 1. 0. With roxio, when a cd is inserted into the cd drive on the laptop, the roxio icon automatically appears on the desktop, the cd play window appears on the desktop and the cd begins playing.

A click on the roxio icon causes intermittent interruption of the music (about 0. 5 second alternating surges of music and silence. The cd drive sounds like it is switching between speeds at the same rate. Roxio does not open. I downloaded update r226903 for the roxio from dell website. Any fixes?

Disappearing Drives, Unstable Boot Up Process

I've been using the windows 7 on my old asus desktop for a few months without a glitch until recently when the hard drives started disappearing by themselves or freeze after copying large files from the external hd and crashed. I reinstall the windows 7 few times, all of the oldie drivers that came with the pc, and the os updates nothing seem to help.

My pc is set to the s3 mode and three of the four internal hard drives are 1tb in sizes and they are all sata drives. I have a cd drive that is on the pata and it doesn't seem to cause any trouble. When the hard drives went to sleep, they woke up without any problem in the past.

When it was fresh installed a few months back, the windows 7 os was already providing all that was needed to run the pc to communicate with the rest of the internal hard drives for a few months without a single problem. I did use the drivers that came with the pc only to solve the problems but the symptions are persistent. I've been downloading microsoft updates regularly from the ms site so my pc is up to date as far as the os is concern and i wonder if the newer updates are to blame.

The moment the pc is booted up, "my computer" icon would show one or two, sometimes all three hard drives (excluding the main c drive) and when one of the troublesome hard drive is clicked to open, the pc would hang indefinitely. Only shutting down the pc completely (not resetting) would allow the boot up process to continue back but often the pc wouldn't boot up but frozen up on the big windows 7 ms icon at the beginning of the boot process indefinitely. If it was the hard drives problem, one or two, even all three drives wouldn't disappear randomly.

Alternative To Windows Networking - Unstable Printer Sharing

I've been using windows 7 for a month now on one pc. I have a home network for other pc's running winxp service pack 3. I am a very frustrated windows 7 user. My network is unstable, printer sharing is iffy at best and i have to hold my breath whenever i try to use a shared file. Previously, with an all xp network, my network was flawless for years at a time. I've been following advice on the forum trying to troubleshoot the problem, but i have a day job and can't spend all my time booting this and that and trying different combinations of things. My question:

Is there a reliable alternative to windows networking. I have trivial requirements - to use a printer physically connected to one of the xp machines and to do simple file sharing across the network. I am even considering buying a copy of windows xp and doing a clean install on the machine running windows 7, but this would be days and days of work. Any insights for a frustrated windows 7 user?

Two Browsers Opening In One Window

When opening internet explorer, one window comes up, but it always has two tabs - i.e. Two browsers - each with my default home page, google. Neither browser goes anywhere weird nor acts oddly, they just sit there waiting for me to use them. Typically, to open a browser, i use a quick launch icon on my toolbar or a dedicated button on my keyboard. I have also tried using the ie icon on my desktop and have tried going to start>programs>internet explorer. Regardless of which method i use, i always get a window with two tabs.

I'm not sure when this started, but i think it was after my last windows update. Interestingly, i have a shortcut icon on my desktop for speedtest.net and when i click on it, i get one window only with no extra tab! Ditto with other website shortcuts on my desktop. This is not a huge problem, but a bit annoying as i must now close an extra browser.

Internet Browsers Connection Crash

I'm having problem with all internet browsers. This error occurs only when i'm using my main user, admin user. When opening mozilla or ie the page won't load. I have to wait like 2 minutes then page loads. I'm in guest user at the moment and no problems. It seems like my internet connection goes away, but no. I'm using msn and other connection required programs so connection isn't the problem. Still my browsers won't get proper connection to internet and won't load pages at first. Every time i reopen browser same problem occurs again. This problem really bothers me. I'm using windows 7 64-bit and running 4gb 2, 7ghz machine. Modem connection, not wireless.

Flash Player Making Browsers Crash

Whenever i use a site, such as youtube on any browser, (have tried opera, ie, firefox, chrome) i get the "not responding" message. I found this : http://forums. Techguy.org/windows-7/908928-browser-crash-windows-7-a.html and my problem sounds very similar, however i dont know how he resolved his problem. Just some info : running new laptop, windows 7 64bit.

I have tried updating and reinstalling the flash-player alot, when i go to the adobe site it says it is successfully installed. And just to make the whole thing worse, it doesn't always happen when i have just rebooted the system, however i don't think this is due to a problem with hardware, i have 4gb ram, 2. 1s something ghz processor.

Flash Causing Internet Browsers To Hang

This has been an ongoing issue and i am so sick of it. Flash content is constantly causing any internet browser i use to hang. My main browser is firefox. It mostly happens with flash video like on youtube. Sometimes it works fine for a while and then all of a sudden when i go to play a new video the browser will hang. When the browser hangs i will no longer be able to watch videos unless the computer is restarted. When the browser hangs it also affects windows too.

I can't even play videos on wmp, it would hang too. It only happens if the browser was hanged. I always get the hang errors when it happens in firefox but i have no idea how to use them. I have made dump files too when it happens but i do not have a clue how to use them. (Something about signature files or something)

Browsers Won't Connect To Internet

I’ve been contacting verizon since june 7 to get my desktop at home on-line. I use ie. Evan tried foxfire and safari. No one seems to be able to get me on-line. Even had a computer technician that i paid to come out, and he says it's verizon. Finally, verizon sent a field technician out twice and each time he was able to get me on-line after several hours and phone calls. It lasted for 2 days each time. After it went down the 2nd time, called verizon back and they said i had a defective modem 6100f because red light didn't go on.

Sent a new westell 6100g and the light now goes on, but it's red. Called back and spent some time with a support technician and he said there was some kind of outage in the area, he didn't know what. Told me he'd call back in 4 hours. Never heard from him. I plugged the ethernet connection into my laptop and the red light is still on the modem. I just want to know what avenue to pursue to fix my problem. I’m going to starbucks daily just to be able to use my laptop.

Verizon doesn't seem to be able to fix the problem. And i don't want to get a new computer if the internet connection doesn't work into the house. They put a filter on the outside at the box so i didn't have to put filters on my phone lines. My neighbor right next door has dsl and isn't having any problems. Does anyone have a solution? I still have window 2003 on my desktop.

Explorer And Browsers Windows Scroll Bar Issue

All windows programmes (such as browsers firefox, chrome, explorer) force the scroll bar to the bottom of the page and will not allow you to scroll back up. Even re-booting the machine several times does not immediately resolve the problem. All windows programmes force the scroll bar to the bottom of the page and will not allow you to scroll back up.

Even re-booting the machine several times does not immediately help. Environment using win 7 on a laptop (acer), with usb mouse. When the mouse is not used (i.e. Tracker pad is used) there seems to be a number of system freezes. We did not get these problems prior to windows 7 upgrade. The lap top is relatively new with 4gb ram.

Password Field Character Limit Problem With Browsers

When i type a password into a password field in internet explorer, firefox, or google chrome, i am only able to type 7 characters. This only seems to be an issue on this particular machine under all user profiles. It affects all sites i have visited so far. If i go to another machine and try the same sites the process works without any problems. I am wondering if there is any security settings or something that is overriding a password field. I am using prevex 3. 0 as my av client. Any ideas on what could cause such strange behavior?

Browsers & Mail - Google Search Results In Blank Window

This is one of those out-of-the-blue things that just started the other day. When i do a google search, i'll get the first page of results no problem. If i click on any of the search suggestions at the bottom or click to go to the next page of results, the screen goes blank and that's that. Refreshing the page doesn't do anything either. I can open the search results themselves no problem, but anything that involves further searching from the first page doesn't work. This just happens in ie9, it works normally in firefox no probs. Also, this is only happening on my windows 7/64 laptop. On my windows 7/32 desktop all is a-okay.

I've tried emptying the temporary files/cookies etc. With ccleaner, and tried it in private mode as well where the cache and cookies are bypassed. Finally i then tried resetting ie (tools > internet options > advanced > reset). No dice. I can drag page links from the results page up to the tab bar and drop them there and they will open that way (in other words, to go to the next page of links i can click and hold the "next >" link or one of the page numbers at the bottom, drag it up to the tab bar and release and the next page will open in a tab. )

Cannot Import Video

I have a netbook running windows 7 starter. I am trying to use my new sony handycam and so i downloaded windows live movie maker. I had the old movie maker on my dell with xp and it just crashes and freezes constantly. I thought i would try to do it on the new netbook, but when i try to drag or open a video file, it moves it but has a grey screen with a red round dot and x on it. The clips have the right time length but no video footage or sound. What is wrong? Files are . Mpeg i believe which is supposed to be a supported file.

Video Thumbnails

I am running a gateway nv52 computer that originally was installed with windows vista x64. I received a free upgrade to windows 7 x64. Now that i am running windows 7 i noticed that none of my video files' thumbnails are appearing only the icons. I have tried several things to fix this:

1. ) Running sfc /scannow

2. ) Deleting thumbnails (disk cleanup)

3. ) All options are correct within folder options ( display icon files on thumbnails on; always use icons, never thumbnails off)

I also had a problem with the preview pane within explorer. I used a program called previewconfig to fix this and now it [preview pane] works fine. However i still have the issue with the thumbnails.

No Sound With Video

It was working yesterday, and today when i woke up i booted my pc and there was no sound all of a sudden. I tried a system restore back to last week and still no sound. I know my speakers work because when i boot my asus g50v laptop the opening is the asus logo and like an explosion (not just a beep). Nothing is muted and you can see it shows that sound is going, but i can not hear it and nothing is coming out of the speakers. See video. Does anyone have any ideas?

Ok To Use Vista Video Driver?

I just did a clean install of win7 h. P. 64 bit on my dell 531s. The dell originally came with vista h. P. 32 bit. Win7 install went without any issues. Can i use vista video drivers with win7? The computer has onboard nvidia geforce 6150se nforce 430 video directx 9. 0 shader model 3. 0 graphics processing unit. Got that information from the sheet that came with the computer. I do have the original dell 531s driver and utilities dvd for "reinstalling dell insipron 531s computer software". Can i use this disc for the video drivers? I went to dell support page and using my service tag number, this particular nvidia driver is not listed.

Using Multiple Video Drivers

I have a dell studio slim with integrated video into my motherboard. I currently have two monitors hooked up using my hdmi output and my vga output, but i recently bought a third monitor and a low profile video card (geforce 8400 gs) so i can expand my desktop to the new monitor. I tried following the instructions and i got the new monitor to work but then the other two monitors don't work at all! I really hope that i can get all of my monitors to work simultaneously. Can anyone please help me?

Cannot Stream Video Or Audio

I cannot stream any audio or video. Websites load but as soon as i try to play the video, the browser freezes and i have to force it to exit the program. This is happening in both internet explorer and firefox. So far i have tried:

Uninstalling and reinstalling flash
Uninstalling and reinstalling java
Uninstalling and reinstalling quicktime
Uninstalling real player
Looking for updates for all of these programs (flash, java, quicktime)
Running firefox in safe mode to see if the problem went away
Updating all these programs

None of these attempts helped. I am using windows 7, on a new dell studio laptop. This is a recent problem that has been on-and-off for the last few weeks, but today everything stopped working.

Video, Media Problem

When i try to play a youtube video or listen to music on media player, they simply do not respond. I have been going through this forum and trying options out such as uninstalling avg, deleting the media store update, acceleration(which my computer does nto allow to change). Before when this program occurred i would restart my computer and ti would work, but then a few hours would pass and the same problem would occur, but ti would temporarily solve the problem, now it doesn't do this at all. I never had this problem with vista, only when i installed windows 7.

My specs
Windows 7 64-bit
Intel core 2 duo t9500 2. 66ghz
4gb of ram
500gb hd
Ati mobility radeon hd 4570

Video Hardware Error

I've had my sony vgn-nw for about 7 months now and this is the first time this has ever happened. I was watching an old episode of the office and suddenly got a blue screen.

-  I've seen this episode before from start to finish, using the same media player
-  When i restarted, i went to watch the same part of the episode where it crashed, and the blue screen didn't come back.

This one incident has got me worried though. Is this something i should now be expecting to happen again?  And if so, can it be fixed by restoring my windows version to a previous version or by reformatting.

When the laptop restarted, it showed the error message, but i clicked check later. I'm using windows 7 and this is the oly info i can find on the crash.

Online Video Problem

I bought a brand new sony vaio a couple months back with windows 7 home premium pre-installed. Everything seems to be working fine but when i get online to view videos, this is where the problem begins. Let's take youtube as an example. When i want to view the video. I let it fully buffer so the progress bar shows the full red line indicating that it is fully buffered.

As the video is playing it will stop all of a sudden and just stop playing even though as stated earlier, the video is fully buffered. I experience this with any video site. What is going on? I used other computers in the house and they didn't seem to have this problem, it only seems like my computer is going through this. Is this a problem with windows or something else?

Video Volume Problem

I just bought a new laptop and after playing with it for a day, i decided to watch the "getting started with windows 7" videos that came with my new laptop. This is my first new computer in 8 years and i figured something may have changed since the first windows xp came out. Well, even though the audio on my new computer worked great on my music and the games i have run, i can only hear the audio on these darn video instructions from microsoft if i hold my laptop up to my ear.

I have the volume on my computer maxed. When i am playing a gome or listening to music on my new laptop, my sister yells at me from the other room to please turn it down and i only have the volume turned up to mid range. What can i do to get this fixed so i can learn about my new computer?

Streaming Video Problem

Ever since i performed a clean reinstall of windows 7(x64), i have been having a problem with streaming videos where they would play fine in full screen for a while but then would exit full screen for no reason. I have checked my background programs along with my settings and none seem to be out of order. I've been scratching my head for a while now as to a remedy for this problem.

Also had the same problem with wmp 12, but fixed that by switching to vlc media player but would like to not rely on different programs to fix an odd problem such as that one. On a side note, i do not have a screen saver on as well as my anti-virus program is kept on silent mode during full screen viewing as to not interrupt the streaming and my drivers are all up to date. Did not have this problem before reinstalling windows 7, so not sure what could have changed to cause this problem.

Import Video From Camcorder

I have a sony dcr-trv22 camcorder that connects to my computer via 1394 firewire. I'm using windows 7 64-bit professional. When i connect the camera to the computer, the camcorder shows up under "printers and devices" with the correct name, so it appears to connect ok. However, i cannot do anything else with it. I can't import video using either windows live movie maker or nero software. The import software doesn't recognize the camcorder, even though the computer does recognize it and has installed the windows native drivers for it. Sony does not offer drivers for this device other than those found in the windows os.

How can i import video when the software won't recognize it, but the computer does?
