Just been asked for possible reasons for the above by my cousin,she has cleaned both lens and discs to no avail. She has a 2 year old Dell machine on which she and her husband watch DVDs and play games. Recently they have been suffering stuttering sound, not affecting the picture, but only when playing DVD films. Others have advised a disk defrag which I said would not help, any ideas what may be the cause? They have also noticed when playing games, that swift movement of the mouse causes blank patches on the screen that follow the movement. I don't play games, but advised that it is likely that the graphics card is struggling to keep up, and that the solution, if they are seriously bothered would be to upgrade the card. Was this good advice?
That would never have entered my head, 'cos I have no idea what it is, (apart from having just googled it!:-)) Is it likely that folk even less PC literate than I would have accidentally disabled it, that is assuming that it is enabled by default?
Thanks for remembering my predicament with WMP 11!
