Greetings:  Re: Windows 7 O/S.  

     When I check the speed of my computer, the lines showing the action do not progress smoothly but have a herky-jerky action. There would be a start and then hesitation and that action would prevail throughout the test. The speed check OK, but the action getting there is not smooth. When I play games on Gamesville, the action starts out OK but as I progress with the game, it shows the same herky-jerky action.

When I check the speed of my computer...

What program are you using to test the speed?

Then you are testing the speed of your Internet connection - not your computer.  You don't state what the upload and download speed of your ISP package.  Nevertheless, the issue (if there is one) is a matter you should take up with your ISP.

You are missing the point or don't understand the post. I am not having trouble with the speed. It's the erratic nature of the feed. Action of the games and hesitation of typing all indicate the herky-jery movement.

OK, I don't understand the post.  What is "herky-jery" movement?  Are these online games?  Do you have to have an internet connection in order to play these games?

Yes, they are on-line games. In layman's terms, Herky-Jerkey = characterized by sudden, irregular, or unpredictable  movement or style. As described by Webster. If you have ever had a toy remote car, which is run by a hand held switch you could make the car run and stop at any interval you wanted just by pressing & releasing the trigger. The OOKLA speed test has arrows that are bow shaped and as the speed is being checked, the indicator does not follow a smooth track to the end result, it starts and stops but not at a constant interval thus, So, I'm thinking that that is how my transmission from my provider is going into my computer, Herky-Jerky.

So why don't you check with your provider?

Well, I thought it might get to that, so basically, I'm screwed. It's Cox.

I don't know anything about Cox.  This is an international forum.

Couple of things to consider;

 

1. bring up task manager when running a game and look at the networking tab. What is the networking utilization?

2. in task manager look at the performance tab.  What is the cpu utilization?

3. do a tracert yahoo.com and post the results for review.

4. post the up/down of the speed test results
