Hello I have a Athlon 2500 - 1.87gb PC with 1gb ram and ATI radeon 9200 vid card.

My problem is that when i try to watch a video in youtube or any other site that's similar , the

video always lags and also pauses sometimes and play again.

Also when I am watching the video it's like playing in slow motion with sounds.

I am using Windows 7 which was recently installed 2 days ago.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Is it possibly your connection? Have you tried with more than one web browser? Does the computer run slow at all?

I had the same problem with my ATI video card. The problem is that when it senses a low load condition it lowers the clock frequency to save power. My clock was being reduced from 850 MHz to 157 MHz causing extremely choppy video playback in YouTube. According to ATI, this is a built in feature and cannot be disabled. But by using the CCC, I increased my clock rate by 25 MHz (the smallest increase available) to 875 MHz. The result was that when the board 'idles' down it only decreases to 400 MHz which gives satisfactory results when watching YouTube videos.

I have that same graphics card in another laptop (I believe) there is no way a laptop graphics card cant handle youtube videos. My netbook can handle it easy-ly on power saver.

You might also want to increase the size of your Paging File in 'Advanced System Settings' under Performance.

I wish he would give us a little more info though lol. It could be because he has to much running in the background. What you said may also be part of it. Ive never had a problem like that on a laptop

I have 7 Home Premium x64 with 8 GB RAM but rarely use more than 2 GB. When I disabled the Paging File, trying to force the system to use more RAM, my YouTube videos would only load a small amount. The lack of a Paging file caused the video to play until it ran out of download material, freeze up, play again for a few seconds and then pause again waiting for more download.
