The movies start to play but then I start to see & hear stuttering before the movie finally freezes. This usually starts to occur within the first minute of starting the DVD.
I’m certainly no expert on computers, but the fact that it works at all tells me that all the software components are in place. It seems to me that my computer is overloaded, which is a little hard to understand because I have a Win 98SE OS running on a P4 1.7 GHz Intel machine with a pretty recent ATI graphics board. One thought I had was to unload all unecessary processes that are running in the background because I have heard that WinDVD is pretty CPU intensive. Can someone tell me which processes are essential for Win98SE (I’m guessing Explorer, Mssysmgr, Gbtray, Systray)?
Or am I barking up the wrong tree with the symptoms I’ve discussed.
Thanks in advance for any help offered. Please remember if you respond that I’m no expert at computers, just curious as to why I can’t get WinDVD to operate properly.
