Hey Folks,

I have a CPU running win 7 64bit, 12gb Ram, Core i7 3.07 GHz Cpu.. I am having a problem where as when i run videos on the PC and open webpages the videos start to stutter until the webpage loads..

Also, I sometimes notice that the loading of the browser itself tends to stutter aswell..

Any ideas on this issue?

It sounds like a resource or file maintenance problem. Try deleting the browser temporary files and lit what runs when viewing a video. You might need to defrag the drives and run Disk maintenance

Hello,

Which browser are you using?  Does this behavior occur on different browsers as well?  Are the videos coming from webpages or are these separate videos such as in Windows Media Player?

Try all 5 common browsers to see if this behavior is consistent among them - Internet Explorer, Opera, Firefox, Chrome, and Safari.  Safari isn't developed for Windows anymore but is still a major player.

As for video, if it is being played from a web page, try updating your versions of Flash and Silverlight.  And then also update your display driver as well if possible.

:) Did all of that already and even fragmented all other drives as well.. Funny thing is that I can extract huge gigs of files and transfer hundreds of gigs from drive to drive and no stuttering, but as soon as i use the browser it starts...

Ok the next thing then would be check the RAM.  Use a memory stress tester like Memtest86+ to see if it is a problem with the memory.

After that, see if there is a BIOS update for your computer.
