Preferred Solution: DVD motion is jerky, start-stop, not smooth.

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.)

Answer: DVD motion is jerky, start-stop, not smooth.

Computer info: processor speed, amount of RAM, video card specs (RAM).

I just upgraded today.
We use the PC as a media center, so we watch live TV using ATSC cards.
Every TV program I tried, the video drops frames, watching someone walk across the screen, they do not move smoothly. The sound is ok. Seems every half second, frames drop.

This did not happen in win7.
I have 8gb ram, AMD phenom 9650 quad core, sata 2 drive, GTX260 nvidia card.
I upgrade the nvidia driver.

Would a newer video card make it work properly?

Answer:jerky stop motion video, dropping frames after upgrading from win7

And youtube is also bad, halts, jerky frame dropping video.
I can swap a newer GT610 or GT640 nvidia card and see what happens. BUT, I may just downgrade back to win7.
What a disappointment.

I was playing GTA 3 without any problems on my old system, then a got a new one and well the game goes smooth, then its jerky and then all of a sudden its smooth again.
I use the games capability to play MP3's during game play that my old system never had a problem with, but with the current one sometime the audio (even the games built-in ones) goes a bit funny and skips like a scratched CD. (the actual CD is fine)
My old system was:

AMD K6-2 500MHz CPU
384MB-RAM (PC133)
Gigabyte GA-5AX Motherboard
nVidia Geforce 2 MX 400 Video
Creative "Something" PCI sound
Windows XP Home

My current system is:

AMD Duron 1.3GHz
256MB-RAM (DDR 2700)
MSI KT3 Ultra2 Motherboard
nVidia Geforce 2 MX 400 (the same card)
on board 6 channel surround sound (all but the front channels are disabled)
Windows XP Home

On both systems I am running GTA at: 640x480 32bit as thats all the old system could handle. I assume the new one should be able to cope with a lot better, but it doesn't.
Of course on the new system everything is cleanly installed, so I don't know where GTA is getting this problem from.
 

Answer:GTA3 Smooth, Jerky, Smooth....

Try running the game off a disk image using a virtual CD-drive. such as

http://www.daemon-tools.com/

see if this helps..

Also, you could download the cache tweaks from

http://www.startdisk.com/Web1/ubd/ubd.htm

left side of page, scroll down to tweaks link. Also, check what's running in the background. Any memory managers like cacheman or memturbo set to automatically recover memory will do this.

I recently got a basic Logitech USB mouse (model UAE-96). I plugged it into my T60, and the mouse pointer was kind of jerky when I moved it around. But the mouse pointer moved very smoothly when I used the touchpad.I thought the mouse might be defective, so I plugged it into my HP laptop, and the mouse pointer moved very smoothly, so it wasn't defective. Both laptops are running Windows XP Pro SP3, and are using the exact same driver version.Then I tried downloading the latest software from Logitech, but that didn't help with my T60, the mouse pointer was still jerky.So I thought I might try a different brand mouse. I got a Microsoft mouse, and it is also kind of jerky when I move it around on my T60.Any idea why the mouse pointer would be jerky when I use a real mouse, but it is smooth when I use the touchpad?

Answer:T60: mouse is jerky, but touchpad is smooth?

Do other USB accessories work OK?  Have you checked your USB speed?

Hello,I recently upgraded to Vista and since then any HDD video's (Sony SR12 120gb) I view on my pc are not fluid and smooth...they are stuttering slightly (probably not the right phrase)...even if I try to view them with Windows Media Player they are the same....Ive tried downloading the latest codecs (k-lite) but it doesnt seem to have helped....Im running 2gb of RAM on a Pentium D 3.2; although I note on some other posts people seem to think you need more than 2gb with Vista...although I havent even tried to edit the video...cant even watch them smoothly...any thoughts??

I recently upgraded to Vista home premium (full install SP1). Prior that upgrade I was an XP pro guy and my media players worked great. Even after I upgraded to Vista the default Windows Media Player worked fine.

Then a couple weeks ago I started having issues with Media Player not showing the video in some cases (sound was still there), playing videos in sort of a slow and stop motion way.
If things had never worked after the upgrade, I'd say oh well but since it was OK for a while I am confused & PO'd

I admit, this PC is getting old, the video card is an Nvidia TNT2 64 with this driver - 6.14.10.6177
the CPU is a Celeron 2.6gh and I have 2 gb of RAM

Any help would be appreciated

The Composition APIs come with a robust animation engine that provides quick and fluid motion running in a separate process from your Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app. This ensures a consistent 60 frames per second when running your app on an IoT device as well as on a screaming gaming machine. It is, quite simply, fast. This is an essential capability for implementing the Fluent Design System which calls on us to create a sense of cinematic motion in our UWP apps.

The Composition APIs also provide something you probably have never had access to before: the ability to create high-performing, low-level manipulation-driven custom animations like the one shown above. In the same way that we that want our visuals to be fast and smooth, we want our touch interactions to be sticky and responsive. Moving a visual with a finger or a digital pen should result in the visual element clinging to us no matter how fast we push and pull it across the display.

Even if a motion looks good, it also needs to feel good under the finger. It needs to maintain the illusion that we are interacting with a real object. It ought to possess the proper physics so that when we drag a visual across the screen and let go, it continues with the proper inertial movement. Similarly, user controls should provide the right amount of resistance when we pull and release them.

The Visual Layer supports both keyframe animations as well as expression animations. If you hav... Read more

Hello:

Beginning with Firefox (for PC) 4.0, anytime I take the focus away from a Firefox page that is loading, Firefox seems to either stop or slow waaaaay down! Is there any way to stop this and go back to the behavior of earlier versions?

I have also noticed that when I start Firtefox (resume) with a number of tabs open, Firefox does not automatically load the pages; instead, Firefox waits until I actually click on one of them and then it loads them! Seems connected with above.

Thanks in advance.

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.

Hi. As a result of Win XP Pro running slow and there were problems with internet connection (no improvement after re-installing wireless network adapter drivers), decided to run a repair of O/S (not by Recovery Console). When the installation process reached the stage "Installing Windows" "39 minutes remaining to complete installaltion", a message popped up saying that certain eternet driver was not installed and asked for the required CD for the driver to be inserted. However, at that stage, the cursor was frosen and so nothing could be done. So, quit Win set-up and re-start PC. Windows started set-up again and the same situation happened again but this time the pop-up message was not relating to ethernet driver but something like "severe error occurred and set-up could not continue". So. abaorted set-up again and re-boot without the XP disc. However, it goes into the blue screen with windows set-up to restart again. Tried number of times, same situation happened. Cannot boot into windows. Can go into BIOS but not even Safe Mode. Tried booting direct from hard disk, no luck too. Hope need not to resort to installing a fresh XP and avoid disrupting existing settings and programs. Appreciate your help please. Thanks.

The computer in question is it a laptop, or PC. If it is the latter open the case, and check all connections and reseat your RAM, and GPU.

Question: NIC start/stop

how can I start/stop my NIC on windows XP SP2 command line?
I executed the following command
netsh interface set interface "Local Area Connection" disabled

But found given below errors

One or more essential parameters not specified
The syntax supplied for this command is not valid. Check help for the correct syntax.

Usage set interface [name = ] IfName
[ [admin = ] ENABLED|DISABLED
[connect = ] CONNECTED|DISCONNECTED
[newname = ] NewName ]

Sets interface parameters.

IfName - the name of the interface
admin - whether the interface should be enabled (non-LAN only).
connect - whether to connect the interface (non-LAN only).
newname - new name for the interface (LAN only).

Notes:
- At least one option other than the name must be specified.
- If connect = CONNECTED is specified, then the interface
is automatically enabled even if the admin = DISABLED
option is specified.

Question: start and stop

xp pro, xp 2700, ati fire gl vid, 512 ram 80 gb hdd. when playing a downloaded movie. movie starts and stops repeatedly and rebuffers. hardware acceleration is full and write combining enabled.
why and how do i fix it.
thanx
 

Answer:start and stop

Is the movie already downloaded and saved or is it like an embedded video like youtube ?
It sounds like your connection speed is not sufficient (or maybe theirs) and once the buffer gets played , it has to pause to build up enough again to play.

Do you have something which allows you to download and save the file itself and play it from your hard drive? Does it start and stop then?

Question: HP start and stop

I have a friends HP 550 laptop that when plugged in to the charger continuously starts and stops. By start and stop I mean the fan comes on and stays for about 3 seconds and stops. It will continue to do this as long as it is plugged in. It does not do this if on battery power but that may be because the battery is low. Is it power supply? on off, switch or something else? Thanks

having recently been delivered from the clutches of downadup by symantec's free tool i now find my girlfriends puter may be infected. It shows symptoms of not being able to reach any security sites including microsoft.thus i sent her the tool in an e amil which caused her puter to lock up solid when she tried to run the file. PC tools website suggested it was possible to access their updates service by disabling dns caching ( stop net dnscache) which worked but when i left it off i could not get my aol dialbb based internet service to work until i re booted my puter; which presubly restarted the service. all i have just read suggests local caching is a bad thing and should be turned off so why does doing this stop my internet connection from working? From this is there any way to give my girlfriends puter access to symantec's website so she can download the removal tool?

Help please, I have, or rather had Firefox as my preferred browser, fully up to date etc, but it seemingly without reason, stopped working. I found that when I tried to start it, it informed me that it is already running although Task Manager fails to identify it as a running process; restarting as requested fails to have any effect as does a repair/install. I have tried uninstalling it but 3 .dll files stubbornly refuse to go no matter how I try to sneak up on them. I have found reference to the problem on the interweb but as to yet, no luck with resolving it. Please help as I have been reduced to using Internet Explorer and it has taken me 5 days to get this far (OK, maybe a bit of an exaggeration but you get my drift).

A short time ago I noticed i had virus, or something along those lines. There was an obvious presense with new programs were installed, and with new icons on my desktop, and in the quick launch bar in the bottom right. I believe the virus may have been the one associtaed with "spyware quake." I ran Spybot S&D and it came up with at least 10 times as many things to get rid of in comparison to a scan not long previously. I removed the entries, but I was still encountering some difficulties, and I decided to use system restore.

Hi

I use google drive to backup some of my data onto the google servers. My laptop is a bit slow, so if I keep google drive on all the time, it takes up a lot processor computation, as a result other programs run slow. But I would like to backup the data periodically say at night to the google servers.

The google drive unfortunately doesnt have an option to set a time when the upload and sync should happen.

So I am wondering if there is a way in windows by which I can start google drive automatically at a certain time and then shut it off automatically at a certain time, regardless of whether the sync has completed or not fully.

I am not too worried about the sync not completing fully, because the next time the sync happens, google drive always picks up from where it left off. Also it seems google drive only syncs the files that have changed. On most days, I dont create huge files, so 6 hrs or so with google drive on, should be enough.

Thanks

I've been having problems with loading my WMP 11 for a while. When I click on the shortcut or open a file requiring the WMP I get a message telling me to restart the computer and try opening WMP again.I don't use WMP much so I've had it on the back-burner. The other day I decided to figure it out, so I ran chkdsk /r and sfc /scannow. Check Disk finished without a problem. SFC prompted me to insert the Windows CD, so I did, and it began copying files, or whatever it does. I left the room and when I came back the CMD window was just sitting there so I exitied the window and tried WMP again.WMP still didn't work so I decided to roll-back to the version that came with my PC.

I am trying to stop a few programs from running at start up because they slow down the boot and i don't use them. I have looked and looked in the control panel and i must be missing it. I know how to add or remove but cant figure out how to just stop it from running at start up.

Answer:How do i stop start up programs?

First place to look is in the options/settings menu of the programs themselves - most programs do have an option to "Start with Windows" or not.

If you can't find that, then just use Autoruns to stop them running on start up:

Quote:




Save this program to the desktop: http://live.sysinternals.com/autoruns.exe

Right-click on it -> Select run-as-admin.

Once loaded, untick the boxes beside the programs you don't want to run. Be careful that you select the right ones.

Then re-boot.

I would start by replacing the network driver with a newer version.

You can do this by going to the device manager in control panel then network adaptors and right clicking on the adaptor and update driver from there but it's sometimes best to go to the machines manufacture website and see if a newer driver is there.

Windows update might also have something that will help.

Ive tried all the following-1) The tab on preference - automatically start Yahoo messenger - the box is unchecked.2) When you sign out of messenger - the start automatically box is unchecked.3) Ive gone into msconfig start up menu and unchecked the Ypager box.4) Ive tried unistalling and reinstalling the software. This hasnt worked.5) Through desperation ive even tried deleting all the files/folders with the word messenger in them. I did loose some DLL files which ive now restored, and reinstalled the software again, and its still doing it. Anybody got any other ideas?Thanks.

When I try to view a video from U Tube or from a friend the video starts and then, within seconds, it stops. I click on the wedge or circle in the center of the screen..often clicking all over the screen... and maybe it starts up again...for a few seconds ...and this process repeats over and over. I can rarely watch a video uninterrupted. Is this a problem with Adobe Flash, as an acquaintance told me? When an update for Adobe Flash was offered I downloaded it to see if that would stop the problem, but it hasn't.

How can I get videos to play without constant interruption?

Thanks in advance.

Hi, open msconfig, (Start/Run/ type in "msconfig" without the quotes/ click OK) on the General tab, select selective startup if not already done so. On the Programs tab, disable the reference to ATI Catalyst System. Click Apply and reboot for changes to take effect.

Hey! I just bought this laptop not too long ago, and something happened to it where I needed to do an Error Check (don't remember what). Now every time I restart the computer, it performs the scan (unless I press any key to skip), but is there anyway to stop this?

ALSO

And this might be related to the Error Check issue, but when I try to Defrag my computer, the C: Drive isn't there!!! So I am not capable of choosing to defrag it! And its not a problem right now, but obviously as time goes by, it could be an issue! How do I get it back?

THANKS!

Answer:Can't Stop Error-Checking At Start-Up

Click start, run, type in cmd and hit enter, then type in: "fsutil dirty query c:" without the quotes. This checks the status of your hard drive, it will say c: is dirty or is not dirty. Then type in this: "fsutil dirty query c:" ...without the quotes. The "X" is what tells it not to check this drive on the next restart/reboot. Your computer should not run chkdsk at startup now. After Windows has loaded, again go start, run, type in cmd, and then type this: "Chkdsk /f /r c:" Once that process is done, type this in the command line: "fsutil dirty query c:"

You should be set to go. I used C: drive assuming this is the drive it is trying to scan and what I assume from your post. Hope this helps!

Also, if you are comfortable with editing the registry (can be dangerous), you could try this as well: http://www.dataclinic.co.uk/disable-scandisk-chkdsk.htm

As seen before with previous versions of Windows, and window animations, I'm guessing that the new behaviour of displaying a full screen icon for each loading metro app is unnecessary. I say this because it means starting an instance of Metro IE10 takes a few seconds when on a SSD equipped PC it should considerably less.

Soooo..... anyone know how to stop this behaviour? I like having a snappy PC, even with infrequently used stuff.

Cheers!

I have just started having problems with closing down & booting the computer. On close down, Windows closes, but the compter does not power down. It emits 3 beeps, and keeps on doing this. The only solution is to physically disconnect the power supply. After a "rest" overnight it booted normally, but close down produced the same problem. Now, after a few hours, it will not start up, there is no display on the monitor, and I get the same (repeating) 3 beeps. The computer is a few years old, but has had a new PSU only a year ago. The motherboard is MSI Megatrends MS-6380E, the BIOS is American Megatrends. Any Ideas or help appreciated.

Answer:Start/Stop problem on computer

Hi, 3 beeps is normally a RAM problem and/or a video card problem, so I would say those are the first two things to check. You could do so by removing and re-fitting both.

Recently my Firefox had started not loading web pages after about 10 minutes of being started up, at first I passed it off as my internet having a moment, and when I closed Firefox about half an hour later and it didn't re-open I thought nothing of it other than "it will probably fix itself next time I restart."

When I restarted it the next day, I was able to open Firefox and all was well for about half an hour when it stopped loading webpages again. I tried using chrome and IE, but chrome acts exactly the same and IE crashes on start-up.

When I try re-opening chrome and Firefox, I recieve no error. There is nothing on my processes on Windows Task Manager about any of the browsers. I use Steam to play games, I can use the steam browser fine for any searching, but I can't use the Overwolf in-game browser either.

I've not found anything online that has helped me resolve this issue. I've already tried things like "Firefox -safe-mode" in cmd and the same for chrome and IE. Any help is appreciated, thank you. I am currently running a full system scan using a free version of avast.

Answer:Browsers stop working a while after start-up

Next time you boot up open Task Manager. On the Processes tab click Show All processes and then sort by CPU. Then open the Network tab. Keep this open as you browse. You'll see any abnormal network activity, and the total cpu in the status bar. If cpu goes high switch to the processes tab to see what's driving it. I would do the scan with MBAM rather than avast, personally.

I have a Pent 4 - 2.8 Ghz - 512 MB Ram - 35 GB HD (4.9 GB free) - circa 2004 - and trying to clone it to a 320 GB EIDE.

I am using Apricorn EZ GIG II to clone Partition C: 35 GB to 238 GB. Partition D: 1 GB - 7 GB and Partition E: 1 GB - 7 GB. I first partitioned the 320 GB into one partition so that my computer would recognize it.

I now have Master Jumper on the 35 GB and Slave Jumper on 320 GB. I saw that the BIOS recognized the slave as the 320 GB. I ran my Apricorn GIG II software from Windows - instructed it to clone the Primary source to the Secondary source. It rebooted and is now in process.

But it is SLOW!!!! At noon it was 3 % - at 6 pm it is at 26%.

I would like to interupt this cloning procedure - check my DMA modes...maybe change IDE cable....do some trouble shooting or something...because this is just too slow..... Can I interupt this process (I only see that I can turn the power off .... there is not "cancel or exit") Will it damage my original Master drive?

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated!!!!
 

Answer:Cloning Slow - can I stop it and start over?

I would have interrupted it right away it shouldn't take more then 1 hour at the most for a drive that size. You in theroy can just shut the PC and check your settings and start over but at least it will be done by noon tomorrow so you probley should just let it go just in case.

Hi, Since the latest Skype Update to version 5 it opens at start up with the Skype page appearing. It's a bit annoying because I have to close the window each time.Does anyone have a fix for this? To make it clear I do not want to stop Skype starting with Windows I just want to stop the Skype screen opening up at system startup. With previous versions Skype would start up in the background ready to receive calls but would only open when asked to do.The updated version has no manners at all, it just barges right in without an invite !
Thanks Alex
 

Answer:Want to stop Skype opening start up

I don't have Skype, but since nobody has responded yet, I'll point out the most obvious possibility - check any options/preferences within Skype and see if there is an option/preference that can be set to prevent the unwanted action .
