Just purchased a new laptop with Windows 7, it has 8gb memory i7 processor. This computer is brand new and any video I try to watch online, (You Tube, yahoo etc,) they are always going into buffering and videos keep stopping and starting. Are there any special settings to help this out. Also I can take my old laptop that has only 1gb of memory and an old processor and it does well, so I know it is not my internet connection or router

No settings should be needed.

It may not hurt to try with a wired connection to see if there is a potability of a network card issue(unlikely, but worth a try).

Also note that sometimes youtube or ones ISP is just slow, then 10 min later its all great again.
