older IBM desk top windows XP pro 80GB hard drive 1GB memory and that's about all i know. fresh install of windows XP because of a past virus. i downloaded adobe reader and flash player. also uninstalled and reinstalled a few times because of my issue.

ok here is the problem. when i go to watch a youtube video about 11 seconds into the video it just stops. no buffering or anything. the little gray bar shows i am loaded far past where it stops. i can click farther down the load bar and get it to play for another 11 seconds or so but again will just stop. clicking the play button does nothing to help.

the video is a bit choppy when it does play. idk this mite just be a age thing since the computer is so old? ether way i think it should be able to play a hole video with out stopping. atlest it did 2-3 years ago before i got a virus and had to do the reinstall of windows. it took me that long to find the right disk that didn't cost me anything. lol

i would be very greatfull of any and all help!

Hi,
My name is Debbie.

I would suggest you to Reset your Internet Explorer and also check the version of IE.

To reset Internet Explorer automatically, follow the steps on this URL: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923737
To download Internet Explorer 8 in the language that matches your version of Windows or choose the English version, which works with all versions of Windows XP and Windows Vista, click on this URL:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/internet-explorer/downloads/ie-8

OR you can download the GOOGLE CHROME: https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/#brand=CHMB&utm_campaign=en&utm_source=en-ha-na-us-sk&utm_medium=ha and try to watch the videos on google chrome and check if that works fine or not.

Please reply in case you have any questions.

Thanks & Regards
Debbie_B

i completely forgot to say i like using mozilla firefox and that is my main browser however the problem happens on IE and firefox. i did have to upgrade to IE 8 because youtube said i had to. still the same issue. i also did as you asked and reset IE with no change. still stops at 11 seconds into the video.

do i really need to use google chrome? i would really rather not have it if i can avoid it.

thanks

Hello,

No, you don't need Chrome. Have you updated the Flash player? Did you update the drivers for your graphics card when you reinstalled?

Hello,


First we need to know the graphics card you have. To find that information, right click on the My Computer Icon on the desktop, then click on Properties. Click on the Hardware Tab then click on Device Manager. The device manager will now open. You can close the System Properties window at this time.

Now, in the Device Manager, expand the area where it says: Display Adapters. Below that, you will see the information for your graphics card. Please post that information.

Hello,

It appears that your computer is showing the categories differently than mine.

Look under this category: sound video and game controllers and post what you find there.

Speccy, which two people have linked to, will also provide that information and a lot more as well.

under sound video and game controllers is audio codes, legacy audio drivers, lagacy video capture devices, media control devices, video codes. clicking on each one does not show any kind of specs.

i hope i did the speccy right?

EDIT: yep it seems to have worked. i was told i only had 1GB ram but this shows 2GB so im happy about that. sorry if that info being wrong and may have affected helping me. also i did notice my disk drive is not under C but under D is this a problem that could affect the issue here?

Running:
avast! Antivirus
Running:
avast! Firewall
Running:
Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing(ICS)

You have 2 firewalls running at the same time. Disable one then check on the difference.
Click Start -> Run -> type services.msc and then double click the startup service firewall then disable, apply.
