I'm not a huge techie so people may have to walk me thru anything step by step, but...

All of my video recently began playing REALLY choppy and slow. Anything on my direct hard drive, externals or even internet playback is all screwy. Also, my Photoshop and windows movie maker started to freeze and unfreeze as they pleases. Started about the exact same time as the other problems.

My harddrive has a decent amount of space on it and I've also cleaned off more (30Gb out of 112 is free space now)

I've never had this issue before but the only changes I've made to my system recently are as follows
1. Got a new Seagate Freeagent external HD (Though the same issues with it disconnected)
2. Used MKV video files for the first time (Though also on the same external)
3. Somehow split my main Hard drive (originally labeled C:) into two lettered volumes (C: and E:). E drive is only 250Mb and 247mb of free space.

If anyone has any ideas of what I can do short of throwing my laptop away, please HELP!

how did you split the drive?
did you compress the original c: volume?
compression causes poor video playback
try checking for an updated video driver from your video card manufacturer.
