Windows 7: Video Freeze then restarts after 4-5 min

16 Apr 2010   #1

Windows 7 ultimate Build 7227
Video Freeze then restarts after 4-5 min

Hello all, having some problems with watching previous recorded video in VLC, Media center, Media player, divx, etc. Video will freeze for about 4-5 minutes, no sound during this time, then you will hear the sound at normal speed and the video will be going really slow til it catches up. I don't get any error messages and no commands will work during this time. When I review the event viewer I don't get any messages. I have the latest video drivers installed also. THX, Jake

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

I think I might be inclined to update your Op system to build 7600. The older builds are past the expiration date.
