    Running XP, Pentium 4, 2 Ghz, 768 MB of Ram, Mobility Radeon 7500.
    When running any type of video (dvd, web streaming, etc), my CPU memory usage goes up to 100% and have to stop the video before the laptop bogs down. Once video is stopped, memory usage back down to acceptable levels. Any ideas? Your help is appreciated.

    Do you mean CPU usage, or memory usage? Try reinstalling the Radeon drivers.
