Hi all,

This has started recently. Any and all videos I try to watch now are choppy and will sometimes stick. I have several different players and they all do the same thing. VLC comes the closest to playing a video. Even G-Force screensaver and stand alone are choppy. All my videos used to play great. I don't know where to start to find the problem. I hope someone can help me. I don't know what info is needed here to help. Just ask and I will try to get what is needed.

You may have to adjust your Flash settings. Right click on any video player and uncheck Hardware Acceleration. It's also possible that your browser security settings are too high.

There are 2 things I need.

1, I can't find video acceleration.

2, Browser security would affect playing videos from my video folder?

I have learned a lot but, I am still learning. I might need a little more detail on how to do.

Are you referring to online videos, standalone videos, or both?

Videos I watch online play fine. It is the ones on my computer that wont play right.
I have a video in FLV format. I just used mediacoder to change it to mpeg and it seemed to play better.
All my videos seem to play choppy and stop and go in any player though.

Did you try to reinstall video driver?

Download System Information for Windows (SIW free version)
No installation required.

After it scans your computer, navigate to Hardware>Sensors and post all info from there.

IMPORTANT! Start playing some video and then run SIW.

Your screenshot is very small.
I'm not able to read anything.

It looks like your video card is overheating.
121C is too high.
Your CPU temperature is pretty high too at 58C.

When was the last time, you cleaned inside the case with a can of compressed air, checked, if all fans are running?

About 3 months ago. It was pretty dusty then.

Well, you have to recheck.
Make sure all fans are running properly, especially video card fan.

Hello Broni,

Well I dropped the whole board into the dishwasher and put it back in. I ran a video and saved another screenshot. I hope I remember how I got the screenshot to show on here. I have the side off right now because I noticed the fan on the video board is not running. I notice the other temps are still hot too.
