I have just bought a 2nd hand laptop and its a Dell Inspiron 1100 and I know its not the most up to date laptop but never the less !
The laptop came with a clean install of windows XP so no virus issues etc but I am expieriencing choppy playback and audio out of sinc when streaming internet TV or watching videos. I have a very fast broadband connection, Virgin media 30mbps of internet speed, I use Firefox as my default browser, I have up-dated all drivers, I have even done a Malware scan, a registry scan and cleaned all internet history, I have the latest flash player and latest Java. Microsoft up-dates are all up to date but still getting choppy playback even with 30 mbps internet speed.
Anyone got any ideas as to why the laptop wont stream properly ? is 1.00GB DDR enough etc ? Is there anything i need to tweak ?
