All of a sudden my PC has been unable to play any type of videos. It doesn't matter what format or what medium I'm viewing them on, they are constantly jerky. The mouse also appears to become jerky while the video is playing too, it's as if the whole PC becomes slowed up and starts stuttering. Flash videos from the likes of youtube also display exactly the same problem.

I've tried updatng my ATI Sapphire Radeon X300SE graphics card drivers, rolling them back to previous ones, reverting to an earlier system checkpoint and done virus scans with AVG. I've even cleaned any dust from the Main CPU and Video Card CPU incase it was an overheating issue. NOTHING I've tried has fixed the problem.

In task manager the cpu usage spikes up to 100% when videos are played.

I'd be really grateful if anyone has any suggestions for me to try as I'm getting really stressed out and am not sure what else to do! If you require any further details about my PC i'll get them posted up right away.

Thanks for your time.

Have you checked for malware? The mouse jumping around could be caused by an infection and would affect the other problem.

You should run more than that. Have a look at John's list at this link.
