Open Task Manager (or Process Explorer if you have it) and see which processes are using up your CPU cycles.

"Screenshots are your friends."

When you are playing a video, you shouldn't really see much CPU usage.

Any processes that are using a large amount of your CPU, could be affecting your machine's performance.
A screenshot showing them, could help someone here identify the problem, or suggest a solution.

Do you know how to take a screenshot of your Task Manager?

Here's what Process Explorer shows, when I play a 1080p mkv video (with MPC-HC).
Click on the picture for an animation.

MPC-HC is using ~11% of my CPU power
Others are using ~7% of my CPU power
System Idle ~82% (that is CPU power available for other uses).

MPC-HC is using ~99% of my GPU power though.

Apart from Chrome ...

Are you sure your graphics driver installed properly?
It seems like every 2nd NVidia driver update causes problems for me.

Nothing seemed to be using any CPU power.
Was your computer behaving normally?
Were you playing a video?

You will need to tick the box in the bottom left corner.

It will probably take a least two screenshots to show all of the processes.
You can see that my screenshot is only showing about 50% of the running processes.
Make sure you are playing a video when you take the screenshots (if it is possible).

I don't use Google Chrome.
It seems to be running a lot of processes.
I don't know if that is normal or not.

One of your error messages refers to Chrome.

Open your Task Manager.
Make sure Chrome is not running and no chrome processes appear in your list.
Try to play a DVD and see what happens.

If you click on the column headers in Task Manager the processes will be sorted (e.g. click on CPU and the processes will be sorted by CPU usage).
If your machine plays up, try to take a screenshot.
Hopefully we will see which process is causing trouble.

Do you know how to view the "Event Viewer"?
  • Open the "Start Menu".
  • Type "Event Viewer".
  • Choose "Event Viewer" from the results.
  • Go to Windows Logs > Application
Look for any red exclamation marks labelled "Error".
You may see information about what is causing your problem.

Have you tried using the "Troubleshooting" tool?
  • Open the "Start Menu".
  • Type "Troubleshooting".
  • Choose "Troubleshooting" from the results.

Hi

In attach files, fotos of task manager, viewing a movie from internet (Chrome).Send as well foto of the warning and error in event log.

Recentelly, update nvidia driver, could that may the cause of this problem? and revert to older one and check if the problem is the same?

Hope will help

THKS

Uninstall & Reinstall

I can only read English.
Sorry.

Was your PC freezing up?
The Task Manager looks normal.

Try uninstalling and then reinstalling your video driver.
Try to make sure that the minimum number of programs are running when you do the install.
Try temporarily disabling as many programs as you can (e.g. AV, unplug your network if you do that).

I had an NVidia driver problem last year.
When I installed an NVidia driver in XP, it "hosed" my entire PC (Windows 7 and XP)!
After I restored the backup HDD image and tried again, it worked perfectly.

Device Manager

I normally use the "Device Manager" to uninstall the device and the driver.

If you get the installer from NVidia, I would suggest that:
  • You only install the driver (unless you need the other items).
  • You choose the clean install option.
