latency when streaming, watching flash, and standard operations in xp (minimizing etc
Im having a problem with my parents' computer. For some reason, if i load a flash or even when im typing on msn messenger, it will occasionally have a bit of latency. The connection here is superb, and it is one of the fastest cable connections I have seen, so I am convinced its a hardware thing.
When I'm watching flash cartoons, it will freeze for a couple seconds every so often, and to my understanding flash cartoons pre load and therefore shouldnt have any streaming problems.
