I'm not exactly sure what caused this, but now whenever I play a video, my resources fly through the roof. It doesn't matter whether it is a streaming video or a video I have saved on my laptop, it makes them unwatchable due to unsynched audio/video and choppyness. It does not seem like the problem is associated with only one program since I have issues playing streaming videos on Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer nor does it seem like an issue that is only associated with one video player since I have tried them on VLC, Windows Media Player, and my Zune player.

What I have tried so far:
  • Updating video drivers
  • Reinstalling video drivers
  • Virus scan
  • Killing background processes to decrease CPU and memory load
  • Updating Windows

I'm not really sure where to go from here. Any suggestions?

EDIT: I just noticed that this also applies to playing audio files.

One of the other noticable causes of high reading is also thermal problems. Did you checked hardware temps. or made any in house cleaning lately?

I ran Speedfan and nothing was running hot. I didn't do anything major before this started happening except for installing a Windows update. I tried rolling it back to before that and still nothing.

Let's try these tools:
Download Speccy and then install the program. To post and publish a snapshot of your PC.
. In the Menu bar, click File -> Publish Snapshot
. Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard
. On your next reply, right-click on a empty space and click Paste on reply box then click Post.

Download SecurityCheck.exe from Here

. Run SecurityCheck and follow the instruction from inside the code box.
. When the scan is finished, a notepad will automatically open as check.txt
Please copy and paste the contents here on your next reply.

Fixed the issue. It hadn't even occurred to me that my recent move could have done this, since I have a laptop and not very many replaceable parts, but I reseated my RAM and everything works fine now. I should have realized this sooner. Thanks for your help anyways :thumbup2:
