so I've been having this issue on my laptop for about a month now. It just started one day and even after reinstalling windows 2 days ago, the problem is still there.
Whenever I watch a movie any video format including high quality, mkv files my video lags, the picture just freezes, gets choppy, the sound continues to work, but video is freezing and eventually I have no other solution than click pause/play a few times, so the picture and sound gets correct again. I don't know what the problem could be, but every player does it, VLC, KMplayer, RealPlayer, WMP,MPHC, so please help me as it's driving me crazy here.
Here's what codecs I have installed if that is of any help,
K-Lite Codec Pack Full
Combined Community Pack
CoreAVC Professional Edition 1.9.5
SRS Audio Sandbox (to amplify sound on my laptop when I watch movies without headphones)
I don't think any of the codecs is causing it, cause I had only K-Lite codec pack installed 2 days ago and I still had video lag, so any idea what it could be?
here's also my laptop specs:
