  1. I presume that your motherboard is a GA-G41MT-S2 (rev. 1.5). Why not install a CPU that's more powerful than an old Pentium D 805? That motherboard will support a Core 2 Duo E8400 or even more powerful processors: http://www.gigabyte.com/support-downloads/cpu-support-popup.aspx?pid=3971
  2. ya I understand that. But I can't buy new processes yet. Please tell me about my video playback problem. is there any necessary software like Directx of What?
  3. There isn't much that you can do other than decreasing the resolution. As you already determined, the issue occurs whenever the CPU is 100% busy. For smooth playback you should get a better CPU and a good video card wouldn't hurt either. An old E6600 or E6700 will be twice as powerful as your current CPU and they aren't that expensive on eBay.

    In VLC, Go to Preferences, then the "Input & Codecs" Tab, you should see a Option Called "Skip H.264 in-loop deblocking filter"
    It is a enhancement for low-quality videos, but it may lag in HD Videos.
    Change it to "All" Then it shouldn't lag anymore.

    I find it wierd that you have LAG with HD Videos since My laptop with a Core Duo and GMA 950 doesn't lag with 1080p videos...

    Hope it helps! :)
  5. You can also change the "Video quality post-processing level" in the same tab, but the performance gain isn't noticeable so it is up to you.
