Glitching & Lagging

1028 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  TheMatt
Hi everyone :smile:

I've had this problem since I got the laptop, and it's getting quite annoying. Whenever I try to watch videos, the video always glitches and lags, and is all jerky and stops and starts randomly. Even if I set to low quality, it still does it. It also does the same thing when scrolling on normal webpages and the like. I don't know if it's something I can fix, or if I need a new video card.

I'm running on Windows XP on a Toshiba Satellite.

Thank you in advance!

what are the specs?
Specs? Sorry I don't know what you mean.
the specifications on your computer...

ex. the processor speed, amount of ram u got etc..

Check your CPU usage. Go into the Task Manager (Ctrl + Alt + Del and then click Task Manager if necessary) and go to the Performance tab and see if your CPU usage is high, like above 60% constantly.

To find out your specs, Download Everest and do a report, and then post that here.
