I have a new Sony Vaio Computer that I bought a few months ago and I am having problems when I play DVD's. The sounds messes up and sounds like it kinda skipping or slowing down the video slows down as well. And there are lines all through thte video.

Also when I am trying to do two things at one time...like convert a movie and check my mail...the sound that your mail makes when you recieve mail is all distorted and slow.

Here are the specs for my computer http://reviews.cnet....7-31256859.html

It's like the computer cannot do two things at once...and I think it should at least be able to play a DVD or a video...my old computer could do two things at once and it only had a 1.8GHz Processor and no hyperthreading

Is there any way to fix this problem??

Playing DVDs are ram/cpu intensive... even with hyperthreading.

You may have too many processes running, or anti-virus programs doing monitoring while you're trying to multitask.

How many tray icons are shown by your clock?

Open Task manager and see how many processes it lists that have started.

Ask yourself if you "need" all these startup programs, and kill the ones you don't need.
