Video viewing with WMP and Real Player has become very jerky. At first I thought it was just streamed content, but it's the same with every video file I have - picture freezing and unfreezing every few seconds. The sound is OK.

I downloaded what I believe to be the latest driver for my graphics controller (Intel 82852/82855, driver version but when I try to install it, it says it cannot be installed on my computer. I have 64MB of video memory on the system - maybe that's insufficient? Task Manager shows the most memory usage being iexplore.exe (53,136K), followed by svchost.exe (33,664), explorer.exe (24,260) and vsmon.exe (15,352).

My hard disk is defragged regularly using Perfectdisk.

Would anyone have any ideas? I'm running Windows XP Home on a Dell Inspiron 1150 laptop, have plenty of disk space and have done full virus and spyware checks.

I am having what sounds like the same problem and it just developed recently. Playback of video will play for a few seconds, stop for a split second and then play again. It looks as though it is trying to buffer a few seconds of video and then play it and buffer again. I have run anti-virus, anti-spyware and reinstalled drivers, etc. This problem is system wide, that is, it occurs in embedded flash video like with youtube as well as with video players like Windows Media. Audio is not affected so the file would appear to be okay, only a problem with video playback.
