Windows 7: video freezes up

video freezes up

I read how to ask questions and what info is needed, but I'm not sure what you need to know about this problem. I watch a lot of movie trailers at different sites and every one of them will stop running at one time or another. If I bump it up a few seconds, it will usually start up again. I'm running win7, under "graphics" it says Generic PnP Monitor on NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 (Microsoft Corp WDDM) 1344MB GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 (HP). I'm sorry that I'm so short on info, but I dont understand this stuff at all. But I'm trying to learn. If anyone has any ideas, I appreciate it. Thanks.

It may be a buffering problem. Next time you watch one, stop it for a couple of minutes at the beginning and then resume. Your graphics it not a barnstormer, but it should do the job - I don't think the problem is there. Also tell us what internet speed you are using. You can check it with one of these websites.

If you are streaming these trailers through the internet, it could also be your internet speed. You may have to hit pause and let the video load for a few minutes before it will play the whole way through without stopping, or "buffering" its called if its streaming.
