How to Get Smooth Streaming and Skype Video?

submitted on June 23, 2011 by HouTex in "Products / Gadgets"
In considering the purchase of a new hard drive, clover brought up an excellent question that would be of interest to many of our members:
If I do any streaming or when I am with my Mom on Skype the whole computer goes nuts. It's a streaming thing. I have cleaned everything up and it doesn't help. I have a 180GB and still have half unused. Any help would be much appreciated!

Please add any advice you may have, to help solve this problem.

    I thought maybe not enough RAM might be the problem and asked -

    How much memory is in your PC? That may be one reason the video is slow or choppy. You can analyze the memory you have with this tool or increase virtual memory (space on your hard drive to simulate more RAM) using these directions - http://www.delete-computer-his.....emory.html .

    Any other suggestions?

    clover, please add your PC specs (OS version, etc.).
    You previously said you had a 160 GB hard drive with half of the space still available.

    I changed the virtual memory to your suggestion. I actually remember doing this to my old computer. I will let you know on this post if it has helped the problem. Thank you!!!
