lag between sound and video

I am having problems playing videos on my girlfriends laptop. it has been pretty consistent but now its rediculous. the sound is well out of sync with the video (ie the sound doesnt match the lip movements and hence looks like a dubbed bruce lee movie).

is there any way of sorting this?

windows millenium, 256mb RAM, pentium 3 700Mhz.

thanks

Do the videos play OK on other equipment?

Video playback is very resource hungry. Try closing down all possible programs when playing.

The CPU speed could be better for video playback but it should work OK.

yes the videos play ok on other equipment. i had an inclin that the processor might be a little slow, but it has coped in the past.

I thought that maybe there are some drivers that need to be installed? i have the "k-lite codec pack" installed.
