I click play and I hear the hard drive begin to race, and then the mouse pointer becomes uncontrollable--jumping around, any media that actually plays is choppy at best, at worst starts and stops so badly that it's pointless to try to watch. Sometimes I can get the pointer to land on the pause button and pause the video until the thing seems to "load" and then it will play normally.
I have a 2006 Dell Dimension DM051, Pentium R D CPU 2.66GHz, 1.00 GB of RAM
Could this be a problem with plugins or drivers, or with my hard drive? I have taken all steps to clean my pc as well, and it is not infected as far as I can tell.
Thanks for any help... it wasn't like this when I first got it.... but it's driving me crazy!
