Jumpy video playback

not even sure this goes here but....


i recently reinstalled win7 on my computer and got all the drivers up to date, however, now for some reason when i play youtube vids, i hear this sound similar to a scratched CD being played. the music gets distorted or stretched for a second or sometimes upto 5 seconds, or there will be random noises in the video.

I also just installed a new Audio manager even though the drivers were up to date, because i thought it would fix the problem of the messed up vids

also for some reason, my internet stops working because somehow the device becomes disabled, it isn't a problem now but i was wondering why that happened.

System specs:

Win 7 pro
Gigabyte mobo, GA-880GA-UD3H basically an AM3+ mobo, with DDR3 and realtek audio and LAN components
AMD phenom 965 BE @ normal clocks

Did this problem happen before, I mean before re-installing Win7 ?

I suspect it has something to do with flash video hardware acceleration. Right click on the video and select settings and un-tick hardware acceleration. Restart web browser and try again.

@Upendra09 Attache badge is rare, how did you get one?

Desperately want one because it is rare (for now, before everyone figures out how to get them) and don't require extensive effort. Really good to add to your badge collection.

well the original story is, i bought and setup this computer back in february, and tried installing win7 but, it didn't work until my 5th time, and it finally installed but i found out i had a second instance of partially installed win 7 on my HDD, so last week i decided to backup my data and totally format everything, which worked but i stilll have this jumpy video playback.

and yes this jumpy playback happened before the reinstall but it wasn't this bad, it was very quick and hard to catch.

i got the attache badge when i answered the calls thing to a test by the mods about a year ago, i haven't been here very often since then so i don't know how to work it now

i just read the articles now and occasionally post a question here

hmmm...how about a bios update? I had an older am2(+)? That spikes up CPU usage for some unknown reason it was very noticeable when transferring files via USB port. Even driver updates didn't fix it. It turns out it was a known issue and a BIOS update fixed it.

i have done that too, several actually, i have installed several new versions of every main driver

update: i got sick of all this jumpy playback and long load times so i attempted a system restore to last week when i first installed Win7 and got pissed of about how long it took to restore so i purposefully turned off the computer knowing the risk of total loss of control over the thing and i am attempting a reinstall again now, but i gets stuck after it says windows is loading files, the blue welcome screen comes up for initial installation but the i just see the cursor and blue background with the flowers or something and that's it, nothing to start an installation or anything, not happy abt Win 7 right now.

I myself have built a Win 7 64-bit machine with that board before and did not have an issue.

well i got successfully reinstalled and the problem is fixed so... i think the problem was i enabled LCD overdrive in Catalyst control center which might have affected the video playback

however, if i wake the computer from sleep mode, occasionally it doesn't connect to the internet and then hangs up

plus i looked at the network map and for some reason it is showing a "switch" between the desktop and the router, however, the computer is connected directly to the router....
