Windows 7: Choppy Video from Computer Hard Drive Only

Choppy Video from Computer Hard Drive Only

Hello,

I have an interesting problem that I could really use some help with. I am using a Dell Latitude E5500 with Windows 7 that is only two weeks old and really hasn't had much abuse at all. My problem is when I try to run a video that I have copied to the hard drive of the computer, the video runs choppy, similar to a CD skipping. However, if I run the video from an external drive, like my little thumb drive, it runs perfect. What would be causing this? Also, I tried running the video in WMP and VLC with the same problem in both.

Please help, I love my new computer and I just want it to start working...

I'm trying to avoid downloading a program to help me with the system specs, so thank you for leading me to the forum post, that helped a lot. OK they have been updated to the best of my ability, does that help?

As a general rule, whenever you get new components (or machine) it is a good idea to go the mfr's site and see if ANY of the drivers have been updated. It is also a good idea to obtain drivers from the machine mfr rather than a component mfr because OEM components are often altered by flash, firmware, or other tweaks to suit a mfr's particular application.

Slightly off topic, but to your statement above: SIW is an executeable--download it and run it, no installation required. If, after you've used it and got the info you need, just delete the .exe file.
