I could really use some help. This is the hardware: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650, no over-clocking, win 7 32 bit, with samsung led tv via hdmi 1080i, no service packs, no additional op sys, operating at 54 mb/s dwnld on hard ethernet line. using hp p8600 w/ 4gb ram, core 2 duo 2.4ghz, system recently reformatted 3x w/ new op sys overlaid. Latest driver installed for graphics, but I have no idea how to set up the Hydra-whatever nor does multiple desktops interest me.
Uses and issue: This machine is used for creating, uploading and downloading films. It doesn't need to be perfect or super speedy, but it does need to be better. I have a weaker machine that is two years older that runs better than this. It has missing frames during video streaming from multiple streaming sites (hulu, netflix, youtube) including delay in video catching up with audio and long buffers. Bottom line, there is no smooth video and it's making me nuts. Any suggestions?
Thanks so much!
