Video Lag In Windows Vista X64


I just installed windows vista ultimate x64 on my pc and i've started experiencing lag from time to time in videos i try to watch. (By closing and reopening the video in vlc, it sometime plays normally (10% of the time)). Also, the sound of the videos seems to be ok, only the images lags behind at a less-than expected framerate. If i reboot my computer and the first thing i do in windows is open the video i want to watch, it plays fine 100% of the time. This didn't occur by using the 32-bit version of vista. I have a quadro fx 3400 graphic card and 4gigs of ram in a hp pavilion a6245n (quad-core 2. 4 ghz). Videos, in my opinion, shouldn't lag based on the computer i have. Do any of you have any idea what's wrong with my computer? I also want to point out that i have installed the latest driver for my graphic card and it didn't change a thing. Also, the sound of the videos seems to be ok, only the images lags behind at a less-than expected framerate.

Vista Audio / Video Lag

Recently i have been having a very interesting and frustrating problem with my version of windows vista ultimate (32 bit). Everything was great until a few days ago when the audio started lagging significantly during any and almost every sound. I decided to look at the process window to try and find out the reason for the massive cpu usage surge, and resulting lag in all audio. I found the problem to arise about every 30 seconds and every time, the file "audiodg.exe" jumped in cpu usage from 0% to around 30-40%. I also know that this file cannot be ended or there will be no sound at all. I've tried everything that i know of. I've scanned the computer with norton 360v2, i've shut down all background applications, and i'll still get lag even when i'm only using about 60% of the processor during a spike. I've also tried disabling all audio effects, upgraded my drivers for the integrated sound, and when that worked, plugged in a creative audigy 2 sound card, updated it's drivers for vista and disabled any and all effects and it still lags, i've almost given up! As a side note, this does not happen when i run xp on the same machine. (It's on a seperate partition)

Video Lag After Vista Install

I recently did a clean install of vista64 home premium. I spent some time installing all of my drivers, and making sure all of the windows updates were installed. Everything seems to be running fine, including photoshop, which is the primary use of the computer. However since i loaded vista, all of my video lags very badly. The sound seems to work fine, but the video frame rate is down to nothing. I cannot play any games on it right now.cod4 will load, and i will hear sound, but i will not get any video. And even older games like guild wars wont play. The video on guild wars was very laggy, and sharded. I have 6gigs of ram, and dual 6800 video cards. I didn't have these problems when i was running xp, so i am thinking there is something i forgot to do, or didn't know to do.

Windows 7 Video Lag

I found that performance has dropped a bit since switching from vista (32 bit) to 7 (32 bit). Vista has always run smoothly for me but since trying out windows 7 i've noticed lag in several areas such as:

- Choppy screensaver
- Highlight box (when holding button down on desktop and dragging over icons) is jumping
- Framerate when playing videos in realplayer doesn't seem to be up to par
- Typing lag
- A bit of jumpiness when moving windows around, or minimizing them
- World of warcraft is choppy when in windowed mode (but runs fine in full screen mode)

Hopefully that all makes sense. The choppiness isn't overly horrible but definitely enough to be easily noticable. Here are my relevant specs:
-Core 2 quad 2. 4
-4 gb ram
-8mb cache
-500 gb hd (75% free)
-Nvidia 8600 gts

I'm pretty sure this issue has 'video driver issue' written all over it. I updated to the drivers that nvidia released specifically for windows 7 under windows update (their "prerelease wddm 1. 1") but it didn't seem to help. Any thoughts or suggestions or similiar experiences to share would be greatly appreciated!

Auvitek Vista X64 Driver

I just bought and installed a generic hybrid tv tuner with auvitek's chipset onboard. Therefore, i need an auvitek driver for it. The seller said that it was vista certified (which is why i bought it), but auvitek seems to have an error on their website. The programming for the page is incomplete and it stops right after it says "for windows vista". They have the bda drivers for windows xp x32 and x64, so i assume they have them for vista x32 and x64. If anyone has any clue as to where i can obtain these drivers, i'd greatly appreciate it if you'd post a link for me. I have searched on google for a bit and can't find the actual drivers.

X-fi Titanium Drivers For Vista X64 Cause Standby Problems

The drivers that are on the web now for the x-fi titanium cause an error message to pop up upon resume from s3 standby. The message is: host process for windows services stopped working and was closed. The audio system then has to restart in windows which forces me to wait longer. Also for whatever reason 5% volume is moderately loud and is the lowest volume i can go which requires me to go into the eq to lower the volume further. I noticed the driver change said it increased the system volume for vista sp1. Looks like they forgot to even test headphones.

Radeon Hd 5770 Windows 7 X64 Compatibility

I'm looking at graphics cards, and i'm thinking about this radeon hd 5770 using a windows 7 x64 system, but reviews addressing win 7 are mixed, so i'm not so sure. My system specs are. Windows 7 home premium 64-bit

Phenom ii x4 955 black edition 3200 mhz

Asus m4a78t-e (with integrated graphics hd 3300 - 128mb ddr3 1333 sideport mem)

2gb ddr3 1600 memory (i'll add 2 x 2gb more before i get the graphics card)

500w psu

The windows experience index in my current system for graphics is 5. 2 and for gaming graphics 4. 6 (scale of 1. 0 - 7. 9). I've read of some people getting 7. 0+ wei scores for a hd 5770. My main concern is compatibility; i've had issues with stuff i installed and their outdated drivers. If anyone knows about the card i linked above (the reviews are mixed on win 7), or can recommend an hd 5770 that has good drivers for windows 7 x64.

Video Lag

I do not know why, but one of my computers has a serious video lag issue. Its had it for quite a while, and reformatting doesnt seem to help much. Ive tried different video cards and video drivers. Nothing fixes it. What happens is, when ever a video or any movement is done, every few seconds, the video will pause (lag) then continue to do what it was doing. Im also noticing its doing it as i type this post. Only other thing is it could be a buffer issue, but i dont know how to track down if the buffer is f*ing up or not. Any ideas?

Xp Video Lag

I experience periodic video lag in streamed internet video using flash media player (even when the video is fully downloaded). During those lag i see about 1 frame every 2 seconds and both firefox and ie cpu usage peak to 50% (i.e. They use one full core). I am not out of ram during the lags and no other applications are running. Pausing the video has no effect on the cpu spikes (they end after the same amount of time, video paused or not)

This problem appeared for no reason a while ago. Since then i tried everything i could think of: driver update, flash player update, various codec packs (even though i am pretty sure this has no impact of flash video), different browsers and i even formatted the computer without any improvements. At this point i assume the problem comes from the newer versions of the flash player (it started somewhere along version 9 but is still present in version 10). My computer is an acer aspire 5100 (amd turion 64 x2 mobile, 1. 6ghz, ati radeon xpress 1100, 1g shared memory) os is windows xp sp3 (problem was present is sp2)

Extreme Video Lag

I'm half-decently computer saavy but i've been having a problem playing videos on my laptop lately. I run on vista and have 1 gig of ram and a 1. 70 ghz processor. My laptop is fairly new and i run norton anti-virus. I'm using an acer now that's replaced a toshiba i was using before which sustained water damage. On my toshiba (which i had for over a year) i could always watch videos fine online and through media player. With this acer (i've had it since october), every time i try to run videos, whether they're already downloaded or streaming, there's a huge lag. The picture itself just freezes for about 30 seconds and the sound keeps going. Then the video speeds up very fast after the freeze to catch up with the sound. I'm pretty stumped. Less than half my harddrive is full, i have spyware/virus protection, i ran a defrag, uninstalled some programs that i don't use, did error-checking and am running my firewall at all times. What could be causing this lag? It only really affects my video performance but it's driving me crazy! I've been all over google and any advice would help me alot

Edit: the laptop is an aspire 5100 if that helps
Processor is amd athlon(tm) 64x2 dual-core processor tk-53

Wmp11 Video Lag

Since installing vista, i've been getting terrible lag on my videos when i use windows media player 11. With xp, i had ripped quite a few videos from youtube via vixy.net, which allowed me to download the videos in avi files with divx codecs. I had also ripped some long (1-2 hour) homemade dvds in avi files with xvid and divx codecs. I find it fairly annoying that all of these videos are lagging terribly in windows media player 11. The shorter youtube videos work alright if i don't go fullscreen, but if i do, they lag. By lagging, i mean that the audio progresses normally, but the video is slower, and falls behind the audio, making it very hard to follow the videos. For the longer movies that i ripped myself, they lag much more. Even without going fullscreen, they seem pretty bad, and starting at any point gives me glitchy video that is already far behind the audio. What i find interesting is that i can play these videos with the divx player, and in windows media center - absolutely fine! However, i'm not a big fan of the divx player, and windows media center takes a while to start up, and runs fairly slowly. Also, with windows media center, i have to fast forward. I cannot simply click on a part of the movie and skip ahead to it. I love vista, but these video problems i have been noticing are starting to irritate me. Any thoughts?

Video Lag In Firefox

Just as the post says, i try watching stuff, e.g. Youtube, and the video lags away from the sound. I press pause, the video then stops and then a second later the sound. Any patches or fixes out there. A link will do. Just don't understand why is only does it in firefox. Other videos that are on my hdd have no lag.

Video Lag On T91mt In Itunes

I have had my t91 mt for a little over a month now. It is running windows 7. I am an average computer user, not a computer nerd, so be gentle with me please with advice, talk down to me anyway, a little backgrounder, i upgraded the memory to 2gb first off. I have itunes installed, and i keep my itunes library files on the t91 but have the actual files on a 32gb thumb drive. I have the itunes set up so that it knows to find the files on the thumb drive. Works perfectly as long as the thumbdrive is in when i open itunes. This works great as i have a lot of music and it threatened to take over all my memory before i got this all figured out. Now for the problem, what i wanted this t91 to do was to play videos and tv shows that i have purchased in itunes. I have purchased a couple of tv shows for my little girl through itunes. Problem is though, when i play them, they have a few second lag/ delay that makes the video pretty much useless. Video and sound don't match up and it is choppy looking. Very annoying, and she is sitting there saying, "what is wrong with it mommy?" "Make it work!" Weirder thing is every podcast i have downloaded works perfectly from itunes with perfect sound and video. No delay at all. I have not downloaded a video/movie yet, did not want to pay and be disappointed if it works as poorly as the tv shows. The tv shows are kiddie show, none are more than 23 minutes or so, so it is not like a 2 hour movie or something. I do have quicktime installed. I have no issues watching a video on youtube connected to the wifi. What is going on here? What am i missing? I had hoped to have a little mini library for her on the thumbdrive so i would not have to tote around the portable dvd or the external dvd drive and her movies with me when on trips and things thinking that the t91 mt could serve that purpose. I do have a 4 gb sd card in the permanent card slot so i could put the tv/video files there i guess if i had to if the issue lies with pulling the files from the thumbdrive, but i don't imagine that is the issue. Space is not an issue. I have removed many programs and with the extra 2gb it should be fast enough. I don't have any issues with speed and responsiveness anywhere else. Any ideas at all?

Nvidia Card With Video Lag / Stuttering

Here is what i have found and it has absolutely helped. 1. ) Download latest nvidia drivers: http://www.nvidia.com/download/index.aspx?Lang=en-us

2. ) Make sure you run the game in window'd mode (odd i know)
3. ) Make an nvidia profile for the game (don't need to make any adjustments, just making a profile helps). 4. ) And turn off the specular and other lighting in the settings.xml file
5. ) Use that buff-mod that allows you to adjust the buff/debuff refresh rate (default is . 5 seconds, changing it to 3. 0 for me worked immensly

Flv ( Flash Video ) Lag On Firefox

Youtube video or any flv (flash video) are not fluid on firefox. They were not on firefox 3. 0, neither on 3. 5 . What's causing that problem ? Firefox is so badly coded ?

Basically, i love firefox for the great addons community that enable us to customize it any way we want to. But having to use ietab every time i want to peacefully watch in a non-choppy way some flash video is boring. I'd like to rely on only one browser to do all my activities. If any solution exist, i'm listening to you. (And it should be set by default on ff) by the way, if i start firefox and watch right after a flash video, it seems to be fluid, however, after 10 mins, if i try to watch another video (or the same) it will be choppy)

How Do I Stop Video Lag In Zoom Mode ?

How do i stop video judder in zoom mode? When i zoom in on a page (moderately, 115% or so) the video lags and bounces severely while scrolling, this doesn't happen when the zoom is at it's default level. The problem is that level is too small for me. What's strange is this doesn't happen in ie8. How can i maintain a moderate zoom level and keep fluid video? I tried to use a zoom extension and got the same results. I also tried messing with the scrolling feature but that didn't work either.

Streaming Video Over Network Lag Issue

Trying to watch shared avi files from another computer, i get some lag problems with the video. Windows can copy the file over in 1 minute, which is 45min long, so it's not a throughput issue (i don't think) all network adapters are on 100mbit, full duplex so there's no conflicts with anything running half there

When playing the video, task manager on the computer with the video shows minimal cpu usage, and network usage doesn't even go past 25% - so how is it lagging?

Windows 7 64-bit Clock / Time Lag

I have a brand new custom built computer, pretty good hardware, and i have had this problem with the timer being laggy, ie. The clock runs slow, but resets itself to the correct time on reboot, (the time in bios does not lag, it is fine) when 15 seconds pass on my computer, it has been 1 minute 15 seconds on my stopwatch. So my computers time is about 1/5 of the normal time, and the issue isn't just with the clock, with any timers, ie, animations, any counters, for example on my websites i build if i have a timeout for like 5 seconds, it will take 25 seconds, so it's something to do with the windows timer, i have seen other people with the same problem but i haven't found any solutions. *I have the newest bios for my motherboard

My computer specs are:
*Asus m4a785-m
*1tb hitachi 7200rpm
*4gb ddr2 corsair ram
*Amd phenom ii x4 965 black edition 3. 4ghz
*Geforce ddr5 gtx 480

Update: 60 seconds on my computer took 4 minutes 58 seconds on my stop watch.

Keyboard Works In Windows Xp Pro But Not In Windows Vista

After cleaning up my hard drive yesterday, my keyboard would not work in vista ultimate 64bit. I tried 2 other keyboards. Neither of which would work either. 2 were ps2 keyboards and one was usb. Now, each keyboard was identified at post and would work in the bios. Now here is the really weird part. I decided i would go ahead and do a fresh intall of vista, as i was about due for it anyway. Just in case. I also cleared cmos just in case i somehow change something in the bios that was causing this (though i doubt it since the keyboard worked in bios). So, i reinstalled vista, and was able to use the keyboard to put in the activation key. So, i thought i was all set. However, once windows fully booted, none of the keyboards would work again. How is it possible that this problem carried over to a fresh install?

At this point, i became very frustrated. I decided to try installing windows xp pro. The xp installed, and now all of the keyboards work perfectly in windows. This would be fine, but i've got use to vista now, and would prefer to use it. Anyone have any idea what this might be? Could it have anything to do with installing vista too many times, so it started to disable functions.

Windows Vista Hangs Sometimes

From time to time, and this doesn't happen every time, i would play a movie and the file would chug, the audio and video would stop, but the computer is still running fine for everything else, the audio would start up and the video would play catch up to the audio. After that the video would continue playing. This happens from time to time, but never in the same place twice. I turned off the indexing option, anti-virus is off, reinstalled the codec pack and even tried other codecs to the same result. Does anyone else have any sort of similar experience to this?

How To Get Windows 7 Free On Vista ?

Answer:- do you want to know how to legally do it? If so, you can go to school that utilizes the the msdn academic alliance. A url for more info has been posted under sources. Additionally, you can become a registered microsoft partner. You have to pay for the partnership, but you get access to a plethora of free softwares and training. So, technically you're still getting windows 7 for free, but paying for the partnership. I will also submit a link under sources for the partnership. There was one other option that manufacturers were giving for vista systems purchased within a certain time frame, however manufacturers are no longer giving free windows 7 to people who made the purchase within the time frame because the final date was, as i recall, january 21st ish. Your last way to get it free is to obtain it illegally and i wouldn't recommend doing that. I also provided a link detailing software piracy and the law with which it is associated.
