I'm having a strange time with my computer, I can watch videos on www.youtube.com or the google videos or www.ign.com videos etc... If I go to play it in media player or winamp or something like that I won't be able to do so! my computer suddenly turns seriously slow and I either have to restart due to lack of patience or wait and try to shut down the application or internet page that's streaming to media player through task manager and then wait for my computer to calm down!

Messengers - If I attempt to go on webcam or send a voice clip or actually go onto a voice conversation on any messenger such as skype or msn the same thing happens as with my videos... Although I can watch webcams ??? If I go into a webcam chat room I can go on cam or if I go onto www.ivideochat.com I can do so...

Not to long ago my computer went a bit funny I think my graphics card might have cooked its self I had a 256nvidia card and now I've gone down to 128mb, I couldn't play games and such when I had the other card in when it went funny because it would make dots appear etc and crash my computer...

I'm not sure if it's a driver problem, is there anywhere on the internet I could scan to see which drivers I needed?

Go to the card manufacturers website, and look for driver updates for your card.
