Ok so i've gotten this problem 3 times and i cant narrow down what the freakin problem is. It started with me trying to use windows media player 10 and when i would play a video from the internet it would lag out the entire computer. It would say 'Connecting...' and then everything just kind of starts lagging out. My mouse could move fine all over the screen but when i try to close the window or open Task manager it all lags and comes up REALLY slow to where i have to restart the computer. I reformatted it and dled only windows media 9 this time and directx 9.0c and still I'm having this problem. I thought maybe it was something with CBS (trying to watch replay of Jericho) but its not that either..I ran a virus scan and smitfraudfix but to no avail. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, except 'Go buy a new comp.' Also if you know any forums or somewhere where they might be able to help..lemme know.

My Specs:

P4 2.2Ghz
80 Gb HD
Win XP
Nvidia 6200 OC

Just curious how we determined that. Did you reboot and then watch a video from another site and get the same results?

Currently home chillin' with the fam and my two dogs!

Open the episode you want to watch and click on "settings".

If Windows Media Player is your default try using RealPlayer which you can download right from there -(Or vice versa).
