View Full Version : Video freeze

06-07-2007, 10:32 PM
A lot of times, I'll be watching a video on U Tube or something, and after about a minute and a half, the video will freeze up. Sometimes it will come back on after SEVERAL minutes, sometimes it doesn't. It isn't just U Tube, it happens on many videos online. Anybody have an idea what I need to do to fix this? I'm sure it's on my end.

It sounds like your internet connection may be a bit erratic. This is more likely to happen if you have a wireless internet network in your house. Things like a microwave or a 2.4 ghz cordless phone can play havoc with your connection.

A good way to check is to use your task manager.

This assumes that you're using Windows XP.

R Click on your task bar. Select Task Manager. Do this before going to a video site, as it starts gathering data only after you start it up. Check out the network tab. It has the speed and status of your wireless connection.

That may point you in the right direction........Good luck.
