My boyfriend formatted his D drive few days ago and re-installed Windows XP Pro on it. After that, music and video keeps freezing (like lagging sort of) for a second or two. We noticed it only happens if he isn't moving the mouse or otherwise just doing anything on the computer. As soon as he just lets it be, the music (or video, we noticed last night when watching a movie) keeps freezing every 30seconds or so. And if he is moving the mouse all the time, the music/video doesn't freeze at all. We checked and it still happens, regardless of the program we use to play the audio/video. Also, the freezing stops if he moves the mouse when it's doing it.
Thanks for your help.

Are you watching online like Youtube or using Windows Media Player? Chances are pretty good you need to update Flash or something else.

It's not that. The music freezes no matter what. Youtube, WMP, Foobar, Winamp. Everything. :/

It could be a driver issue then. It's hard to tell without more specific details. Your description is too vague. Are you on dialup?

Apparently this got sorted as my boyfriend installed back some old drivers. Thanks though.

Great. So it did turn out to be a driver issue.



In response to the other person, it's helpful to know where you are watching the video. Is it Windows Media Player etc. or online like Youtube etc.?
