    Hi All,

    I need some help regarding my Notebook PC. It seem so to have a problem when i watch videos. It never fails; about 10 minutes into a movie the screen will freeze up and the audio keeps playing for about a minute The screen either goes black or I get Solid white fuzzies. I have tried pretty much everything. My graphics card drivers are all up to date. And it doesnt matter what program that i load the video in, such as VLC, Windows media Player, Winamp, Quicktime, nothing seems to work. I need help. I do appologize if this topic has been already brought up.

    System config:
    HP Pavilion dv6700 Notebook pc
    Amd turion x64 mobile technologies TL-60
    3 GB of RAM
    NVIDIA Geforce 7150m/nforce 630m
    Windows Vista Home Premium

    Can you post a snapshot of your Device Manager?
    Click on View > Show hidden devices

    Please do not change the appearance of the Device Manager in any other way.

    Thanks (y)

    No I have not tried dumbing down my resolution. I don't see how that would help cause I can stream videos on the net such as youtube and such and everything works great. Its just when i try to play dvds or even movies that i have downloaded. They play for about ten minutes and then it crashes.

    Delete (with the Delete key) the Teredo device.
    You forgot to click on View > Show hidden devices
    Reboot.
    After rebooting, pleases post the Device Manager with the hidden devices selected.

    Thanks for the snapshots.

    The Teredo device has been properly installed this time.
    Are you still having the same problem?
