Jerky & Slow

Question: Jerky & Slow

My PC (Acer) suddenly started to run slowly and very jerky. This happened yesterday morning after I started it up (I had shut it down the night before).
When typing there is a noticeable delay between hitting a letter and it appearing on screen. Scrolling is very jerky with pauses in all browsers and offline as well. Any program or picture that is opened also opens in stages (jerks) instead of all at once. Microsoft saves all drivers are up to date.

I'm running windows 7.

Preferred Solution: Jerky & Slow

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Question: Slow & jerky IE6

IE has been really slow & jerky recently: scrolling with the mouse wheel jerks around rather than being smooth, when I pass over a link it takes a second for it to highlight (like it's lagged), it takes another second or two after clicking on a link for it to actually register, highlighting text takes a second until the highlight actually shows up and then it takes another second when I click elsewhere to unhighlight a selection, typing on a page (forms, this message, etc.) hiccups so that I'm still typing but it doesn't register until a second or two later, buttons on a page (like "Save Changes" down on this page) take a second to register, and pages with a lot of images scroll ridiculously slowly. Unless I'm mistaken, this seemed to coincide with my move into a new apartment and cable Internet. Before we had DSL at the house where I was and I never had this problem.

I've tried running Norton, checking for viruses, defragging, getting all the latest windows updates, and nothing seems to make a difference: there's still a terrible lag in the activities I mentioned above. What could it be? I've tried testing it on a loaded webpage while the computer's disconnected (physically) from the Internet and it's still jerky, so I don't think it's the connection itself. As far as I can tell the rest of Windows is working fine... Sifting through directories in My Computer and Explorer seem to scroll fine.

Answer:Slow & jerky IE6

Morgan,

My sympathies.

About a thousand possibilities run through my mind, and you're on the way to most of them way ahead of me:

Get out the screwdrivers, open 'er up, and check to make sure that all cards and cables are securely seated since the move.

If you have Aida32, run it and read it, especially on memory.

But the most interesting of the "usual suspects" that comes to mind is your network settings involved in the switch from DSL to cable modem. There should be significant differences in settings for the two, and since you seem to have your problems ONLY when on the Net (and thus ONLY when you're using your cable actively), I'd look to those settings.

There are a number of sites available that will help you figure the right re-sets for yourself if you're comfy with regediting and such, or they'll offer you free or cheap sware that will give you a one-size-fits-most solution for your type of hookup to the Net. Speedguide is one of the best, I think. Try it. Everything you do to get a better response on the Net is reversable.

Answer:Xp Slow And Jerky Somebody Please HELP!

If I understand what you have said you 1st installed WIN 98 and then installed the XP upgrade. OK, if so, you do not have to install WIN 98. Backup any files you may need to floppy - CD, etc. You need both the WIN 98 & XP Upgrade discs. Put the XP Upgrade in and reboot system. Make sure your BIOS is set to boot from CD. It has been a awhile since I installed an upgrade but follow the prompts. At some point, if you don't reformat the drive, it well detect the WIN 98 OS and ask if you want to over right it. You do! You should be prompted about formating you hard drive. I would go with the FULL format to NTFS. Along the way you will be prompted to insert your WIN 98 CD. M$ just wants to check that you do have a previous WIN OS that is eligible for the upgrade. WIN 98 is. All it does is check the CD then it should tell you to take it out and put the XP Update CD back in. Kick back and enjoy the ride. I probably don't have the exact sequence listed but if you ran the upgrade before you know how to follow the prompts. Bottom line--you don't need to install WIN 98 at all!!!

Good Luck

Hi,My computer has been irritating me for months with laggy typing, when I close programs they do not disappear from the bottom bar quickly, when I try to play Spider Solitaire, the cards deal and move jerkily.I scan with NOD32 daily (NOD32 is updated daily). I used to run a paid up version of Counter Spy but have removed it because I don't like the program. I also run a paid up version of The Ultimate Trouble Shooter (like SiSoft Sandra) but can discern nothing in the process descriptions that looks out of place.I followed the Hijackthis routine to the letter and saved the log which I am posting. I didn't post it at the time as I have never used a forum before and got a little nervous about it all....*sigh*After I did the Grinler/Hijackthis routine, the computer ran well but now it has gone bad again so I have to do something to preserve my sanity.I did install Zone Alarm but have not used it for a couple of weeks as I never seem to be able to manage personal firewalls very well. While I was running Zone Alarm the computer was fine and now it is not so I guess that tells me something.Anyway, this is my HijackThis log file from a couple of weeks ago.

I just posted a similar thread under Windows Media Center concerning the playback of recorded TV video. I triple boot Windows XP Pro 32 bit, Vista Home Premium 64 bit and now Windows 7 RC1 (build 7100). I have experimented with different graphics cards and different drivers. In Windows XP my playback is without fault. In Vista & Win 7 it jerks.
I also noticed today that an executable slide show had the same symptoms. Then I went to a folder with just pictures in it and tried to view them using the default Windows 7 picture viewer, and it was *way* slow loading each picture, showing the "loading" icon on each picture before it finally came up. I then booted back into XP and brought up the same folder in Windows Picture & Fax viewer. In XP you can thumb from one picture to the next almost immediately. These are 1.5 to 2 Mb files direct off my digital camera. Vista and Windows 7 display the same sluggishness. My Vista install was originally 32 bit. It was slow too.
Does anyone have any suggestions?

Answer:Slow and Jerky Graphics

OK. I just downloaded the latest 64 bit NVidia drivers for Windows 7 and installed them. That *seems* to have taken care of the photo viewer problem. However, video playback is still jerky. No change noticed there at all. So far I've tried Media Player Classic, Windows Media Player, and GOM. They all act identical.

I have a Dell Mini 9 that I upgraded with a 120 gig solid state harddrive and a 2 gig RAM. I installed Windows 7 professional and now I have jerky and slow computer response and video playback. I don't know how to diagnosis the problem to know how to fix it.
 

Answer:Slow & Jerky Playback

Hi,
1)Win7 Pro. takes a lot of resources , 3GB Ram would be better, if you cannot upgrade further, if you have a Spare SD card of at Least 4GB (6 or more would be better) you could try using as a Readyboost, should help a bit
2)McAfee although good, takes up a Lot of Resources, you could try the Free Microsoft Security Essentials 2 (Released in December of 2010), it is rated very high and eats Way Less resources.

3)Try also checking your Start up programs , go to Msconfig/Startup tab and see what you can safely eliminate from starting up.

4)If you do try MSE instead of McAfee, make sure to properly remove McAfee first

Good luck and have a Happy New Year

My new laptop with Microsoft 7 will not play videos properly either online or downloaded.  I am on dial-up, but even videos I have downloaded are not worth watching.  The graphics move a few seconds, stop, go again, stop, etc. etc.  Do I need Flash or some other driver component to correct this?  Suggestions welcomed!Bill.

Answer:Slow & Jerky Videos on MS 7

Hi wilmsp,1. what is model & manufacturer of your new laptop?2. what is model of your graphics card or graphics chip on your laptop (if you know or can find out)3. have you install latest drivers for your graphics card or chip?4. what kind of video are you trying to watch? High Definition video or regular standard quality video? If the graphics are playing back on your laptop as if you're in serious traffic jam may mean that your graphics card may not be able to handle it .... don't now know if that's the case, just a thought.

Hi all, this is my first post here! I hope the info I provide is all that is needed to help with my problem.

I am having problems with running Doom 3. I'm not sure of the correct term but it is not running smoothly. When moving around it is very jerky and slow. Even on the intro movie it is like that. This happens even with the quality set to the lowest in the game options. I installed the latest driver for my graphics card just yesterday (23.08.04) and it made it a little better but still pretty slow and jerky.

I am dying to get into it but am afraid that when the screen gets too busy with monsters it will crash seeing how its not performing well already when I'm only at the start and there's nothing else moving.

What changes can I make to any settings to improve greatly on this? Any advice will be much appreciated!

By the way, I read in other threads 'xxFPS'. What is that?

My system is as follows:
P4 3.0Ghz / 512M RAM / ATI Radeon 9200SE (128M RAM) / is this all the info you need?!
 

Answer:Doom 3 - very slow and jerky

it's youre 9200se that's causing the really slow framerates (aka jerkiness). you'll want to get a better video card to make the graphics smoother. as for the xx fps thing, fps stands for frames per second. that's how many still images you see in one second that makes the video. 18 fps is the threshold of smoothness for a human. 24fps is the framerate for movie theaters, 25 for pal (international standard video) and 29.97 for us standard ntsc. you'll want something at least 30 fps for your video.

I searched the forum for answers to my problem and came up with some things to check so here is my information. Mouse at times moves jerkily or not at all and then after the system appears to catch up, the mouse returns to normal. Task manager only shows a single item using CPU but it is using up to 99% most of the time. The item is "MaxBackServiceInt.exe". What is it? Can I disable it? I have a long list of other items listed but all of them indicate no CPU usage. Performance page shows my CPU at 100%.
Help please and thanks. Oh yeah, running Pentium 4, 2.52 GHz, 768 MB RAM. I have fooled around with virtual memory and currently have it set at recommended levels (1150MB initial and 2302 MB Max) for both my 60 GB Drive C and 100 GB Drive D.

Is may be just me but scrolling up and down through posts in this forum seems slow and jerky compared to eight forums.

If I press the arrow keys to scroll up and down then it scrolls a bit, pauses for a split second and then carries on a bit more before pausing again. Is this just me or is it some design to make it work better on phones or something?

I tried different themes but it is the same.

It may be specific to your system. I don't have this problem. Try another browser.

Hello it's me again,

Been awhile since I've last visited this site as I haven't had any major problems with my PC for some time now. Unfourchantly I'm not so lucky this time, my PC seems to be running really slow and jerky lately. I tried System Restore but it seems no matter what date I choose it keeps saying something along the lines of: "System Restore could not restore your computer to the specified time."

I've been going over it with my Father(who builds and programs PCs as a hobby) he can't seem to figure out whats wrong with it either but he says it might be a virus on the count that I used to download alot until my PC started acting-up. I'm thinking something in the hardware might be losing power because my PC can't seem to handle doing more than two things at once anymore without getting really really slow to the point of, alot of times, freezing.

If anyone could please respond to this whenever you have the time I would really apreciate it.

Thank you for your time and have a nice day,


PS: Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that some time ago I may have 'accidently' deleted some 'core' files that were only recently restored. I don't know if this helps or not, but I'd liked to know if it's best that I start from scratch again(which I'm totally cool with) or something.

Hi Peter,

Running Win.Xp Pro 64




I take it that all of your drivers are up to date. Getting drivers for XP x64 can be a bit of a nightmare due to lack of support for x64 XP. There is better support for 64bit OS in Vista and above.

Can you post your full specs. Download and run Speccy for me. Once the program has gathered the required information, go to the top of the Speccy window and do File>Publish Snapshot. Click Yes when prompted. Now copy and paste the URL address that it gives you to your next post.

When did you first notice the issue?

Answer:Slow Computer... Jerky Mouse

Looks clean. Let's check one thing, and if that looks good, I will suggest you use the Startup Database here at BC to stop some of those programs running automatically at startup. You have a tremendous amount of programs automatically starting and that can seriously reduce the performance of your computer. Info on how to use the Startup Database can be found here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/33012/how-to-use-the-startup-database/Now, Download this tool to your desktop:http://www.uploads.ejvindh.net/rootchk.exeRun the program. After a short time a logfile will turn up. Copy the contents of the log into the thread.Notice: Some security-programs prevent the creation of dummy drivers with certain names. This may cause false positives. If the log of rootchk contains a lot of hidden drivers, you may want to turn of your security programs while rootchk is scanning (you should then unhook your network connection as well)

Any ideas of what I can look into on my computer to see what's slowing it down so badly? I haven't installed any new programs in quite some time. I have 8.1. I've been trying to look at services and startup to see if there is something strange but can't find anything. One weird thing I noticed tonight is when I open chrome, in task manager, services it shows 10 instances of chrome when I only have the one window (no other tabs) open. What? I'm at a loss and this jerky internet is driving me mad, can't get a good score on bejewled blitz on facebook, lol!

Answer:Performance verrry slow, jerky

I would recommend to get rid of Chrome, and switch to Firefox

I did that, because Chrome would log me in every time, even if I didn't want to. Besides that making it slow, I felt like a tracked animal.

In my experience, slowness is due to the thing:
1.) downloading updates
2.) auto-aupdates
3.) anti-virus is running a QuickScan
4.) it's auto-defragging, but that stops, once is sees you are doing something

Hi - I posted a hijack log under the same Topic Title a few days ago. The person who looked at it said I was clean and suggested I reduce the startup programs. I did this but still the problem persists. I have been watching the talk manager while running my browser (avant browser). I notice that when the computer is idel and using very little CPU and the browser is open every 30 seconds or so there is a "spike" up to 100%. On further investigation I discoverd that another avant.exe appeared briefly alongside the one showing. It then disappeared and the CPU usage returned to normal. When I am quicck I can end the process f this second avan.exe and it disappears but my browser remains open. Any suggestions as to what it might be and how to track it down? Thanks

Answer:Slow Computer...jerky Mouse

If your computer seems to be slow, read Slow Computer/Browser? Check here first; it may not be malware. There are reasons for slowness besides malware - i.e. disk fragmentation, disk errors, corrupt system files, too many startup programs, unnecessary services running, not enough RAM, dirty hardware components, etc. As your system gets older it becomes filled with more files/programs and has a natural tendency to slow down so cleaning and regular maintenance is essential.You can download and use Process Explorer or Glarysoft Process Manager to investigate all running processes and gather additional information to identify and resolve problems. These tools will show the process CPU usage, a description and its path location. If you right-click on the file in question and select properties, you will see more details about the file. The Process Explorer window shows two panes by default: the upper pane is always a process list and the bottom pane either shows the list of DLLs loaded into the process selected in the upper pane, or the list of operating system resource handles (files, Registry keys, synchronization objects) the process has open. In the menu at the top select View > Lower Pane View to change between DLLs and Handles.

Hi everyone.

My computer has been running a bit slow lately. Basically it takes a while to open internet and other programs...when watching videos (youtube/other streaming things) it's been jerky and freezes often.

If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated.

1. XP is taking > 5 - 6 minutes to boot (Even in safe mode).
2. Can't play even small audio video files....video is jerky ... sound crackles.
3. Overall performance is ok till I have azureus , limewire and AVG working..then things slow down a tad.
4.Also my physical mem (RAM) is 512 MB but in the task manager it shows around 200 MB (or something close to it) used and another 200 MB free when windows starts up.....the numbers dont add up.

Ok i decided to get rid of my dell 1.8ghz 2gb ram 80gb hdd laptop and bought:

A hp compaq 2.0ghz core2duo, 3gb ram, 320gb hdd just to 'have the best' and now i wish i didnt 'downGrade'. Other specs inc: IE7, xp pro sp3.

Right issue is: Whereever there is a scrolling box or webpage, for instance if i google something then scroll from top to bottom it will be smooth till about half way then it will jerk and be delayed for a second or 2. Its not webpage specific it will happen even if i goto say internet options then advanced tab and scroll on that it will jerk. On the odd occasion it will be SO BAD it looks as if my vga card drivers are not installed.Also if i click something then start typing it will not pickup the first letters/numbers i type, this is also frustrating as if im typing a password it wont pick up the first digits and i have to start again. Also when highligting text it again wont highlight it all it will pause/stop for a second or 2 before highlighting what i want it to. To solve the issue with no luck ive tried the following:

Update my radeon hd 3200 drivers
reformat laptop (xp pro sp3)
Install all drivers possible

Hi,

This problem relates to my wireless mouse.

Every so often while using my mouse the mouse becomes really laggy, slow and jerky. This lasts for about 15 seconds before things go back to normal again. It's as if the PC is processing something with is memory intensive for that period of time.
Does anyone know what is happening here and how I could diagnose/resolve the problem.

Regards,

C h r e d g e.
 

Answer:Laggy, slow and jerky wireless mouse

Try keeping a Task Manager window open to see which program is using the most CPU. I don't think it is a memory issue. You can sort the Processes tab by CPU usage, just click on the column header.

This all started after trying to delete zone alarm, spybot and AVG and installing a new ethernet card in order to make my Insight cable connection to work. I have since reinstalled an early version of zone alarm, but had to delete spybot because my pc just totally locked up with it enabled. Well at least I am on line now.

Answer:All Internet browsers sickening slow jerky and I NEED HELP.

Generally, if you have a program that you didn't intentionally install, and it's telling you there's 1000's of errors, it's most likely lying to you.
If you'd like to solve the problem for "free", there several great applications on this website to attempt to do just that.  From the download section, I'd grab AdwCleaner, and Malwarebytes Anti-rootkit. These two have generally served me well in the past and continue to do so in the present. Sometimes the biggest challenge has been getting to a point where the computer will allow the files to be downloaded.  You may get redirected, or have files download that you don't intend. Pay attention to the file dialog when you're getting the files. They are not named with a generic "setup.exe", so if you get prompt to save or run "setup.exe", you've been directed elsewhere, and are probabaly just getting more malware.

Hello there members ,

I'm working on my mom's computer again. Last time I was here it had a bunch of viruses, and the good folks here helped a lot to get it functional again. It does not have a virus now, nor malware, but it is extremely slow. Trying to play music from Internet stations or watch youtube videos online is impossible, and overall it feels sluggish.

The Windows Task Manager shows CPU usage pretty low at 4% or so. 71 processes running which doesn't seem high to me. I see System Idle Process, CPU at 99? Not sure that's it though. There's probably about 55% or so available on the C disk drive. I'm about to defrag it and see if that fixes anything, but I'm pretty doubtful.

I've run all the usual anti-spyware (Spybot + Malware bytes), and anti-virus (Avira) but that hasn't helped a thing. What are some things I can do to troubleshoot?

BTW it's Windows XP on this machine. Any assistance is most appreciated

Answer:Slow Computer - Herky / Jerky Streaming Audio Video

Did you used to have the problem before your malware issues? Playing audio and video online could simply be an issue with your Internet connection. When you say playing is impossible, what does that mean, nothing comes out, stuttering.... Have you measured your upload and download speed? Speedtest is fine, if you avoid hitting the ads.What sort of things are sluggish? Page changes, mouse movements, programs starting up.........The System Idle process being 99 means it's not very busy! 71 processes does seem a bit high but these days every man and his dog wants to run a service on your PC. Mine are currently 54. I would have thought that during your malware removal exercise, others in this forum would have indicated what programs and services do not need to be running.

Awhile ago I did a system clean up, reformated the HD and reinstalled a freash Win2K on it. Ever since then, I can't play DVD on it any more. Besides from reinstalled OS and PowerDVD, hardware wise it's the same as before. I know this old dog can handle DVD since it was playing fine before. I just don't understand why it doesn't do it any more. :-? What causes the DVD to play jerky? Did I miss some configuration?MacPC

Answer:Jerky DVD

So, you used InterActual player before the OS reinstall and now you're using PowerDVD, right?  Can you reinstall InterActual and try it again?  Do you have your resolution and other display settings (monitor refresh rate, color, etc.) set the same as before the OS reinstall?  Are you usng the same video driver now as before the OS reinstall?How does the rest of your new software configuration compare to the old?  Same anti-virus?  Same firewall?  Same programs running in the background?  Etc.?Have you run Disk Cleanup since your OS reinstall?  You may have a lot of files in your Temp folder; might help to clean it out.

Question: Jerky TV reception

My WMC had been displaying normal TV reception until about two days ago. Now the picture and audio is very "jerky" as though it's coming in packets that are hesitating to be decoded. My reception on other TVs connected to the same system is normal.

Actually I've found the program to be a little quirky. It always opens in full screen and for some reason the cursor will not display on the blue screen. All I can do is hunt around until I highlight a button blindly. The remote starts it, but it seems I need to activate it twice to get it to finally tune to a station. Even if I close the screen in not full screen mode, it will always reopen in full screen.

Hi all,

I get this intermittent problem with MCE when watching recorded programs. The playback will become "jerky" and quite often the sound will be normal.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Have you checked your hardware to make sure that all is running well? What about your Reliability and Performance reports? Is it possible another program starts running in the background (for example, something that is network intensive, as for some odd reason the new UI doesn't like necessarily mixing network activity and sound activity)?

I have jerky DVD playback on my laptop!

I am running a PIII 1100, 496 megs RAM and Windows XP, plus WinDVD decoder and a variety of players.

The sound seems fine, and audio CDs play fine. It's just the video images that are bad.

Why the sudden change? Any ideas?

Good question would be what has changed since the last time you used it and it performed correctly.

Install any new software, hardware ????
Change resoloution settings for video ????
Make any changes to the dvd player?????

What about background tasks running, if you use control alt delete and end task on unnecessary tasks does the playback improve?

I recently downloaded Jing. I used it once, didn't like it and removed it. Since that time I've been troubled with an issue with the screen only when I scroll. Instead of it moving up or down smoothly, it gives the appearance of "refreshing" itself each time. It's unusual, hard on the eyes, and probably shouldn't do that!

Question: Display Jerky

Hello,

I am having trouble with my display. When accessing the internet I have noticed that IE is jerk when scrolling. I have also seen it when using other applications like word and Acrobat. At first I though this may be a display adapter problem but now i am not convinced. I noticed a similiar thread on the site that appeared to be a result of Malware. I am concerned that this may be the cause of my issue too. I have run Adaware and Spybot and have cleaned up the few issues it found but the problem remains.

My system details are:

XP Pro SP 2. IE version 6.0.290.2180.
AMD Athlon XP 1733MHz, 512MB.
Asus A7V8X, VIA VT8377 Apollo KT400.

I searched but could not find a solution. I was using a Microsoft Optical Mouse(wired). It was jerky so I upgraded to a Microsoft wireless laser. It is also jerky and sticky. Any ideas?
 

Answer:Jerky Mouse

I have had some experience with jerky mice caused by the surface you are using the mouse on. Try putting something with a texture and variegation under the mouse and see if it makes a difference.

I can watch some videos on the same site with no problems but some are real jerky in the sound and image.

See how this one looks to you:

Answer:Jerky Playback On MP

It seems to be ok for me Deke. There's a bit of jumping around in the bits taken in the dark from a car but I think the jerks are down to the camera/camera holder rather than anything to do with streaming/downloading/your computer. I'm using cable broadband just for info. In sumary I think the jerks are in the car, not on your computer

Question: Jerky Monitor

Hi.I'm not sure where to look for the answer to this so I'll just post it.  I have a compaq FP5315 monitor.  When playing games or watching internet TV, a lot of the time the image is rather jerky, rather like someone is pressing a pause button on and off very quickly.Anyone know why this could be?  I'm guessing it could be something to do with the video card, but I don't know enough about it to work it out really.I'd appreciate any help on this subject - thanks, guys.

Question: Jerky cut-scenes

Hi everyone

I recently had to buy a new display card. The motherboard's about 4 years old and has an AGP slot. It was a mission to FIND any AGP display cards, but I got hold of a FORSA GeForce 6600 after a lot of searching. I'd never heard of this brand (from Hong Kong) but it uses the Nvida chip which kimda redeemed it!

After I installed it, I found that an adventure I'm playing (Journey to the centre of the earth) is very jerky (stop start stop start....during the cut-scenes) It does this too with my fave motor racing game "le Mans 24 hours". Makes the car look like it's filled with kangaroo petrol.

I'm sure the store is going to say there's nothing wrong wih it, but I put this down to the display card. I'm open to correcvtion. This never happened woth my old card. Does any of you kind folk have any tweaks or walkaroimds to override this jerkiness and have it play smoothly? I've tried both games on a friend's computer and it is perfect - so it's not the games.

I've tried reducing the resolution right down to 600x800, reduced colour depth to 16 bit. I "thought" it may be a sound isssue because the sound jerks in tandem to the imagery. I lowered the sound accelerarttion, but that didn't help neither. Oh yes, I installed the latest drivers off Nvidia's website but it made no difference.

Question: Jerky games

My first question so if it is in the wrong place or just plain dumb please inform me. Also I don't explain myself so well anymore. Almost 8 decades have eroded my typing, thinking and perception.

Q. Lately I cannot really use Microsoft solitaire games because the pointer jerks around, the cards over shuffle, sometimes don't go where they are directed. This is not limited to silly games, but scrolling has become jerky or just plain "won't". I listed my computer world for reference. Hope it helps.

Note I use Microsoft exclusively and standard software, including explorer 11. I have been advised to move to chrome, foxtrot, other platforms, but I am set in my ways.

Question: suddenly jerky

Hi All,

I have a dell inspiron 1720 which runs and NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT.

I've been playing call of duty 4 on it, and it's been working fine. But recently, its been jurking every few seconds, which is very anoying and spoiling game experience.

Any thoughts on what might be causing this? is hardrive of CPU a factor? do new updates from windows cause problems?

Thanks,
bruno.

Answer:suddenly jerky

any background work will affect performance, i suggest you disable anything that runs automatically in the background, ie/ automatic updates(set them to notify me) and/or antivirus that auto scans at a certain time.

Help, i needed to reformat my computer using an xp disc as unfortunately i didnt have the recovery disc supplied originally. Since reformating my computer my computer has been jerky and i cant get any sound. I have have been told i need to obtain my drivers. Im clueless to all of this as i have always had someone to sort thing out for me lol.
how do i find out what drivers i need to get for my computer and where can i get them from. Sorry if this is a stupid question to ask but i am a girl after all :D

Answer:Jerky XP after reformating.

You may need to install "video drivers" for your computer. Do you have a sticker on the front that says "ATI" or "nVidia"

If you right click "My Computer" and select manage and click "Device Manager" do you see anything under the display category with a yellow "!" ?

Hi. Now, i'm not going to bore you with some lame sob story or anything. I'm just going to give you the straight facts. I have a brand new Dell Inspiron 6000d. the problem is that my dad is a jerk. okay, i can't resist, here comes the sob story. I'm eighteen. My dad is a fifty-year-old four-year-old. when he first gave me the computer i was thrilled. this was the first time that i had ever gotten a brand new computer. before that, i always got his old one when he got a new one. (granted this was okay because he always got top of the line, but his idea of the perfect computer was that of a business exec, small, light, and power conscious) When he gave it to me, however, he only needed one sentence to completely crush me. I wasn't going to be an administrator. I was devastated. Of course, he figured that i was going to install all sorts of games on my pc. not true. i have long since come to the conclusion that, if you are going to play video games on a PC, then you need to have one completely dedicated to gaming, which i don't. Now i have a 7 day trial for Keyhole PRO. for those of you who don't know what keyhole is, it is a program that provides access to the entire mapping industry. In other words, its like a spy satellite uplink only not live. It uses massive archives of both satellite imagery and high-altitude photography to render (in 3D sometimes) many major cities and popular tourist points. there are not many things that i want to install, but i ca...

Hello and welcome to TSG.

If you go to Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager, you might see a yellow mark beside one or more of the entries and that signifies something hasn't yet found the right driver since you reinstalled. It may be graphics or mouse in your case. Right click on it and go to Properties then click on Update Driver. If you're connected to the Internet and have the right settings, the system should wander around your computer and the Net in search of a more appropriate driver. if it doesn't, please post back for some more detail as to how to track them down.

Question: Jerky DVD playback

I have a problem on an old computer running XP Pro and Power DVD 4. The computer is a P2 450 with 256M, Voodoo3 16M graphics card and Sound Blaster 128 sound card. The video stream is jerky. On looking at Windows Task Manager Performance it shows CPU usage at 100%. I have DMA enabled on both Primary and Secondary IDE channels. The hard disc is freshly formatted under NTFS and the only thing running which takes resources is the wireless LAN adapter. If that is disabled the video improves slightly and CPU usage hovers between 90 to 100%. If I remove the sound card and have the LAN disabled, then I get smooth video with CPU usage down to about 60 to 70%. I have tried swapping the DVD drive from Secondary Master to Primary Slave.I have a lesser computer, with the same configuration, Windows XP Pro, a P2 350 with 128M with an ATI 32M graphics card, same sound card, same wireless LAN adapter, and it runs Power DVD 4 perfectly showing CPU usage hovering between 50 to 60%. I have swapped the graphics cards over, the RAM, the Pentium processors, the DVD drives, and still cannot get the DVD to run smoothly on the higher spec computer. I have dropped the screen resolution from a normal 1024 x 768, 32 bit colour, 75hz refresh, down to 800 x 600, 16 bit colour, 60hz refresh, and still poor video. The hard discs are identical. Both computers run the same version of DirectX.The only fundamental difference between the two computers is the mother board, both are PC Partner BX boards using VIA... Read more

Answer:Jerky DVD playback

I would have thought it must be to do with the software environment, after all you have tried with the hardware. Have you gone through and disabled every piece of software you can think of?Also, have you got the DVD drive set to DMA on both systems, and have you got the Via 4-in-1 drivers up to revision? - these make big difference to IDE performance. Have you got the DVD on a seperate IDE channel to the main HDD?

Question: Jerky MP4 playback

I own a Toshiba Gigashot HD camcorder (a brilliant camcorder) and I have been recording video in 1280◊720 MPEG-4 format.

However, when I playback any video on my computer it is very choppy and jerky. It skips irregularly every couple of seconds or so.

It is jerky if I play it on QuickTime or VLC but if I play it on "PIXELA ImageMixer 3 for Toshiba" there is no jerkiness.

This isn't a good solution though because this is an editing program and it isn't paticularly appropriate for playback of videos.

Can anyone explain why the playback of my videos could be like this?
 

Answer:Jerky MP4 playback

Hmm, I think it's probably computer spec tbh because the videos play absolutely fine on my dad's incredibly fast Apple Mac.

I have a 4 year old 1 Ghz speed Mesh computer with a 32Mb Nvidia GeForce2 MX/MX 400 graphics card. For viewing DVDs I have the version of PowerDVD that came with the PC. Operating system is XP Home. Drivers for the graphics card are up to date (as judged by XP).There is a problem viewing some DVDs. Sound is uninterrupted, but the picture continually stops and starts, as if the graphics card can't keep up with the DVD. The strange thing is, the problem only occurs on Warner Brothers DVDs. Also; the same thing occurs on all my Warner Brothers DVDs without exception. Does anyone understand what's going on here?

Question: Jerky DVD Playback

I have an external USB 2.0 Freecom Classic DVD+/-RW which I run on a desktop through a USB 1.1 connection with Windows 2000, P4 1.5Ghz with 256Mb RAM, Nvidia TNT64 32mb Graphics Card and Realtek AC97 Soundcard.Using the free RoxioDVD player bundled the playback is always jerky (sound and video). When I first got the player I played a DVD and everything seemed fine. I have connected to my laptop running XP and USB 2.0 with P4 2.8Ghz 512Mb RAM and integrated graphics and sound card. The DVD playback with the same software runs fine on this although I have just run it again and looked at the Task Manager which even on the laptop was showing between 90-100% CPU usage!Is this a software problem or hardware issue? I flashed the firmware on the Freecom Classic and had to return it for replacement, so would hope to find a solution that did not involve updating the firmware. The only other thing I can think of is that I connect via USB 1.1 but I don't think this is the real issue.I have tried the Freecom Tech support with poor response i.e none so far!!

I would guess you are using a mouse with a Ball underneath. Take out the ball and clean off the little rollers inside the mouse, best done with something like a nail-file or small screwdriver. Make sure all three rollers inside are absolutely clear of gunk! Your mouse will then be like new!

I'm not sure what this means. You always have the same amount of RAM, freshly booted or running for months at a time ;-).

This is from a review of that card. Not exactly "stellar" in it's performance:

"Overall, the Xtasy GeForce4 MX 420 isn't a stellar performer, though it's fast enough for common business applications and for light-duty game playing. In most of our tests, it couldn't reach 60 frames per second, even at 1024 by 768 resolution using 16-bit color, our lowest test resolution and color depth. Frame rates dropped considerably--by about 80 percent, on average--when testing the board's mettle at the more demanding resolution of 1600 by 1280 with 32-bit color, making games virtually unplayable. The lukewarm performance may be partially attributed to its 64MB of SDRAM--all of the other cards we tested at the same time came equipped with faster DDR SDRAM."

Question: Jerky Dvd Play

Yesterday when my daughter tried to play a dvd the sound and video were all jerky, I know it was working ok up to about 2 weeks ago, and as far as I know i have not changed any settings. One thing I did notice was that there was an icon for ffdshow on the far right of the taskbar, I do not remember installing this and it would not allow me to close it. When i now put a disc in the drive the listing under my computer just stays as DVD-RW Drive (D:) whereas it used to change to show what disc was in there and I cannot get the drive to auto play at all, even to get audio cd's to play i have to clock on the drive in my computer and click on the track I want to play. Any help and suggestions appreciated.
I am running xp home sp2 on an evesham xp1800 pc with 768Mb ram and the drive is a TSST corp TS-H552U DVD-RW. I have followed the troubleshooting guide, I have run nero drive test, I have uninstalled and re-installed the device but it is still the same.
I can play video that is on my hard drive with no problems.

Hi, I am having a problem with my computer. My computer is running unbelievably slow, takes 15 mins just to start up and is very jerky. My CPU usage is off the charts, with almost nothing running. I cant even play any music or movies because it skips too much. It is a HP 1.73 ghz and 504mb of ram. Please can some one help!!
Thanks

Answer:Computer very jerky!

Hello David Judd

Look in Task Manager to see what is using all the CPU.
Click the column header to put the CPU usage in order of amount used.

Also check in msconfig and disable everything not needed to run at startup.
Start/Run and type in
msconfig
OK

Startup Tab
Keep the page open then go to one of the links below. They will tell you what all the entries are and whether you can disable them or not. They will also identify any malware. Disable everything which is not needed to run at start up

http://www.sysinfo.org/startuplist.php

http://www.castlecops.com/StartupList.html

Read the Key at top of page. Use the Search box to check all your entries

When you reboot you will get a message saying you have started in "Selective Startup" Click "Don`t show this message again" then OK

I'm not sure if this is the right forum for my problem but I figured I'd start here.

The problem I'm having is that after a day or so of use my computer starts to lag/stutter in certain programs. The first indication my system has gone crappy is my real media files stutter during playback, getting worse the longer my PC is kept on. Next I noticed that certain video games like X3 and Crysis started doing the same thing. Restarting my computer fixes the problem but this is far from an optimal solution.

Originally I'd thought bad video codecs in real media but I can't explain why only 2 of the 6 games I've got on here stutter. Weird, at least to me, is that all of my other forms of video media work fine as do the rest of my games.

Any ideas would be great or even just an idea where this question would be better served, if not here.

Answer:Jerky APPs after 1 day

When was the last time you defragmented your hard drive? Also, what do you have running in the background as far as programs? Is this a newer PC or an older PC?

Question: Jerky Screen

Hmm, I just can't figure it out. Everytime I install XP, I get a jerky screen whilst scrolling down webpages. It drives my pparents mad. It's always like that, then after a while it goes, so I think it's an update. I just formatted this laptop.

Answer:Jerky Screen

Most probably you updated you Graffix driver as windows may have been using the default VGA driver before.

Question: video is jerky

I just replaced the video card on my computer because my old one went out.  N ow the problem is that whenever I play videos on my computer, whether disks like from blockbusters or netflix or from online sources like youtube, the video is very jerky.  Also when I view images on my computer like family pictures and move them up or down on the screen, the movement is very jerky.  Has this behavior got something to do with the video card and if so how do I fix it?

Question: Jerky DVD Playback

Hello

I have recently done a restore of my system and now when i try to play DVDs the title menu is in black and white and the playback is jerky. I have tried WMP and PowerDVD but both are the same, also video files play fine - its just DVDs. I got the latest codecs and checked to make sure the Primary IDE channel was in DMA - it was. Baffled.

Thanks a lot.
