Question

I have an adult membership to Penthouse.com, and when I try to view a streaming video, my computer & screen locks up, and the only way to get out of it, is reboot. Not even the three finger salute works. (C+A+D) And of course I have to wait while "98" runs scandisk, because I didn't "shut down" properly. I am running a computer, built by my friends at the Data Doctors. A 233MGH, with plenty of mem (528M). Any tips on what I can try to find out the problem, would be greatly appreciated. Maybe I need to upgrade, or get a better video card?? Anyway, I would like to try some things to find the problem, before I eventually come to the DD's, to upgrade. I have been with the D.D's forever, even when Davie Mac was Kenny's partner. Wow - awhile ago. Thanks a ton. Ron Radmer --- [email protected]

More than likely this is an insufficient memory issue for your PC There may be too many files buffered or stored in temporary memory (RAM) It is recommended than the Real Player be the only file open on your computer Close all other programs Also, clear your systems CACHE within Navigator or Explorer It may be necessary to restart the RealPlayer stream You can pick up where you left off in the program by dragging the slider bar to where you were before the system error dialog box appeared You may also have to close and re-open the Realplayer and your browser.

Streaming works more or less like watching a video tape or a CD Rom However, this is not video like you may have at home on the big screen TV It's smaller and delivers fewer frames per second, so motion - especially quick motion - may seem a bit blurry or choppy This is normal.
