Today I purchased a Gatway laptop from Best Buy. Here is all the information NV51B15U, 4GB DDR3 Memory, AMD Dual-Core Processor E-350, 250 GB HDO. My internet is Virgin Mobile EVDO Mobile Broadband. I have know knowledge of computers or this USB internet I have. When I try to go onto Youtube to watch videos the video will play for about 2 sec stop and starts to buff the play then stop and so on. I have java and flash player 10 installed. I was told that I may need to go through another internet provider as the speed from the USB cord will never get any faster. Is this true? Is there something I can do to be able to watch videos without having to wait 10-15 minutes for it to load?

Ok, I went to speedtest.com when I installed the program it says I have 169 errors and system health is poor and damage level is high. I only had this laptop for 24 hours now. I haven't really used it. I only installed java and flash player. Should i take this laptop back?

csuba, I recommended http://www.speedtest.net/ nor http://www.speedtest.com/ (it is not the same website) . U dont have to install anything, just run it from the chrome browser. Chrome is light, fast and more secure than IE.

1. Install CCleaner http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/
2. Uninstall whatever u installed (from http://www.speedtest.com/) with CCleaner
3. Scan Registry with CCleaner + fix all
4. Run CCleaner and clean

Your laptop is fine. Just do 1 - 4 and you'll be just fine.
