Hello, I have a question about my PC.

Some time ago, my computer used to play HD videos 720p and 1080p perfectly, but from one day to another, the videos became slow, and I didn't change any hardware in the computer.

These are my system information:
Inter(R) Celeron(R) CPU 2.80Ghz
1.00 GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS

I think that with this processor I can play HD videos in youtube, what you think? what do I need to play HD videos again?

Its way past upgrade time for you if thats an old celeron single core processor.

And you've kept all of your drivers up to date? The truth is that software is becoming more and more demanding and Nvidia has dropped the 8400GS as their baseline offering. I believe the GT 210 is now their lowest model.

Without spending any money, the most you can do is;

- Clean it out
- Update drivers
- Set all Windows visual options to low presets
- Adjust power settings to high performance
- Use a solid color desktop background (no image)
