pc timing goes to pieces!!

  bagpuss66 19:52 29 May 2003

My machine has problems with programs like Reason when internal timing is used.When viewing some movies using windows player e.t.c. the clips will take ages to start and then stutter.
This can also affect games.
I think that it's something to do with the cpu timing,any help?

Appears not enough info in order for any help forth coming. Can you advise your system build - cpu, ram o/s etc

Sounds like yuo're either out of resources or your disk controller is not set to busmaster/dma etc.
Add yuor system details including system board make/model, OS, RAM, disk, CPU and we'll see if we can't make some suggestions.

You should not get any "stuttering" with your pc spec. Viewing movie files can take up a lot of processor power. Do you have any other applications running when viewing your media files? Try closing every running application down and see if that makes a difference. I can view movies on my old 450mhz pc with 312mb ram without any problems at all.

Just one other question - Are you viewing downloaded movie files or streaming files?
