I have a HP Pavillion Ddv6-3230us laptop. 2.4 GHz 4 GB ram, Windows 7 Home Edition

I bought it brand new in January and this morning I got a start up error after reopening the lid (it wasnt hibernating or turned off). I ran the start up recovery utility and it couldn't fix it. I did a sys restore, still couldn't fix it. I followed HP's system recovery tools and ran diagnostic tests and finally decided to perform a back-up and reformat back to factory settings.

After the new install, I updated everything like java, installed AVG. When I try to talk on windows live messenger (my friend has their webcam on, not me) and try to stream a tv show or watch a video, everything starts crackling and freezing. I have gotten the error High CPU Performance from audiodg.exe. I searched for an answer and turned off all enhancements under playback devices. Nothing is fixing this problem. Can you please help?

(I have spoken on windows live and watch these same video streams for months now with no problem until today.)
Thank you,

If you actually formattaed and reinstalled then did you install all drivers starting with the chipset driver? Open device manager - any yellow or red symbols? If you did NOT format and simply used the restore image, that's a different story.
