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 184.108.40.20696) 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.
