Customer Question

I was watching a video and the buffer couldn't keep up, it was start/stop every 6 to 10 seconds. It there a driver update that can solve this problem, I recently update to windows 10 and I don't want to spend money for something that is all ready available for free.

Hi there,

This is unlikely to be a driver problem.

It is more likely to be caused by a lack of resources - either memory or CPU.

Check the CPU and memory usage in Task Manager when playing videos.

If any are showing too high, you will need to try closing some other open applications to help the video play more smoothly.

Let me know if you want me to check remotely.
