Probably 90% of what I do on the computer is watch videos. Without videos working properly, I have nothing.

About last week, I noticed that videos basically stopped working. I would have to wait for a period of time to let it buffer, and then watch it. Which I never had to do before. 45 second videos, take atleast two minutes to buffer before I can watch. You can do the math for longer videos.

I even reset my computer back to factory settings in hopes of fixing the problem. But ofcouse, it doesn't work. Now, they just take longer. And I lost everthing.('Would' have been worth it if it fixed the problem)

Please, any ideas on what it could be? I was almost positive setting it back to factory settings would have fixed this.

If you completely reformatted the disc and everything liek that, its probably a hardware issue. How dirty is the inside of your computer? That could be part of it.

Could you be more specific about where you are watching videos? Is it streaming sites like Youtube? What browser are you using? Do you have the latest version of Flash?
