Dell Inspiron 9100, 2.4ghz pentium 4, 2gb ram, 43gb used out of 150gb....
when watching my favorite 'media (video)' aprox 40mins long, i would get about 3 mins through the 'media (viedo)' then the video will lagg and the sound will not match up with the mouths talking. I would pause it for 10 mins then play again the video will catch up for another aprox 3 mins then start lagging agian..... i have noticed when this happens the cpu goes to 100% this is also the case with web videos like youtube etc

Firefox also frezes sometimes when this happens. and sometimes this causes the cpu to go 100% again... i have recentley had a computer problem wich cause me to use the rcovery console to resovle this problem... it has seemed to happen after i have done this.....
it is an extreme pain in my arse to stop watching my video every few mins
if you can help that would be great..
Regards Tim
