Maintenance :: Delay When Scrolling And Choppy Streaming Of Videos?

Apr 8, 2014

Just acquired my first win 8 laptop. I had a loaner win 8 and hated everything between the computer and OS. I really like this Lenovo but im still having issues with win 8. Mainly this computer and the rental one seems very bogged down. Everything from social media or streaming etc even scrolling down this forum page has such a Lag or delay. Is this typical for win 8, can i do anything about this?

the lag is a delay. everytime I would scroll down a page it would have a delay, or if i stream a video (I use chromecast) it is delayed and choppy. My Win 7 Laptop had zero issues like these.

Freezes When Streaming Videos - Audio Continues Normally

Jul 8, 2014

I have brand new MSI GT60 laptop with GTX870M ,i7-4800MQ CPU and 8gb ram.

There is a random 2-3 second freeze every few minutes while i am streaming videos(any site - Breaking News, U.S., World, Weather, Entertainment & Video News, youtube, etc). they don't play smoothly at all , they play so laggy. during this freeze audio does not loop or freeze, it continues normally.

i have tried the following
1. i have updated all the drivers video, network, sound.
2. Tried a different browser (both Firefox and Chrome).
3. Used the killer cleaner and installed the pure drivers.
4. Tried the killer package from MSI support page, recovery disc and the version from Qualcomm site.
5. Gave up and installed a brand new windows 8.1 as a secondary boot, same issue.
6. tried disconnecting all USB devices and everything , still freezes.

This particular issue could not be a temp thing, since it starts right from the moment i switch on the laptop. Also i don't notice any lags when i am playing games or playing videos using some video player(BS player/VLN)

Its not an internet issue as well, videos would have completely buffered already but would still freeze. Looks like a flash player issue, i have tried 3 versions of flash player (11,13,14 ) all have this issue, i just cant solve this.

I have also run some traces, uploaded trace files here: [URL] ....

Maintenance :: Windows 8 - How To Disable Unwanted Autostart Delay

Dec 7, 2012

Windows 8 waits several seconds before it start my programs that are set to auto start. I would like to make Windows 8 behave like older variant. This new feature is of no value to me and annoying. The apps start too late and steal focus, or I just watch and wait stupidly for the apps to start while the system is basically idle... It's a lot quicke to start the apps manually lot of the, which of course defeats one main reason for auto-start.

Maintenance :: 8.1 RTM - Slight Delay When Searching Control Panel Items?

Sep 20, 2013

I have three machines that were running windows 8 on them. I used my MSDN to upgrade all 3 to 8.1 RTM. The only odd thing is search on just one of the PCs.

On this PC, when searching for items found in the control panel (such as "Indexing Options", etc) it seems to have an artificial 2-3 second delay before displaying the results under the search field. On the other two machines, they're near instant.

For those with 8.1, try it on your machine. Search for Indexing Options of File History and see how long it takes to show up, either by hitting Start and typing or Win+S...

Is there any reason why this may be? I've already rebuilt the index and decreased the size of it, as well as rebooted several times and ran CCleaner a bit. The only difference is this machine is Win 8.1 Pro, while the others are regular. I have disabled the Bing web search on all three and all other settings have been left alone.

Maintenance :: Delay Chkdsk Startup Time At OS Boot - Windows 8 And 8.1

Apr 8, 2014

Delay Chkdsk start up time at OS Boot | Windows 8 & 8.1 (Or Disable Altogether)

Previous to Windows 8 if Chkdsk needed to run without prompt the user had the ability to cancel if so desired. Since Windows 8, the user input has been removed.

At the least, you can change the delay setting as follows:

Modify DWORD "AutoChkTimeout"


1. Open Regedit:
One way to open regedit is to hit the Winkey+S and type regedit, hit enter when you see it appear.

2. Navigate to the following registry key:

Code: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlSession Manager 3. Click on the folder "Session Manager"

4. In the right hand pane you will see registry values. Right click on the value "AutoChkTimeout" and select "Modify" (See image one)
If the value is missing, create it (See image two)

5. Change the "Value data:" to the desired delay time of your choice.
e.x. Changing the value to 10, will delay the Chkdsk start time by 10 seconds.
Click OK, close the registry.

Create DWORD "AutoChkTimeout"


If the registry value "AutoChkTimeout" is not present:
Right click on an empty space in the right hand pain (in folder "Session Manager")

Select "New"
Select "DWORD (32-Bit) Value
Name it "AutoChkTimeout" (No Quotation Marks "")
Follow step 4. above.

Name = AutoChkTimeout
Base = Hexadecimal
Value Data = Delaytime (in seconds)

DISABLE automatic repair in Windows 8 & Windows 8.1

If you would like to disable automatic repair altogether:

1. Open the command prompt as Administrator (an elevated instance). If you have no idea how to open an elevated command prompt. Hit Winkey+S type in cmd.exe, when it appears, right click on the name and choose "Run as administrator"

2. Type the following text into the cmd window

Code: bcdedit /set recoveryenabled NO

You have now disabled the Automatic repair function.
To reinable: Follow step 1 and in step 2 type in the following text:

Code: bcdedit /set recoveryenabled YES

Having disabled the Automatic repair feature, you can follow Brink's tutorial on manually running Chkdsk > Here:

Internet Randomly Disconnects And Choppy Audio

Aug 7, 2014

I have a Windows 8 computer, HP 110-017cb. Here is a look at it online with some of its features and specs: [URL] .....

Now the first problem that I have been having for awhile, is that it randomly disconnects and reconnects to and from the internet. My computer requires an ethernet cord, and it is never unplugged. I have tried different ethernet cords and blown out the ethernet ports on both the computer and the modem, and I cannot identify the problem. It is not the modem as my brother plays our PlayStation 3 online with an ethernet cord and he never gets disconnected.

The other problem I have had is that recently when I watch videos or listen to sounds, the audio gets choppy and distorted, and the whole computer slows down. The most that has ever happened while I was on the computer, was that sometimes I would watch videos online and the video would freeze but the sound would keep playing without a problem. The sound itself has never been distorted before until this problem.

Periodical Movie / Music Choppy Playback In Windows 8

Oct 4, 2013

This is a problem I've encountered on 2 totally different devices. The first was a stationary self built computer, and I figured the problem had to come from compatibility issues, maybe some kind of internal arguments between drivers and hardware, so I returned to Windows 7 and thought nothing more about it. Win 8 was still pretty new back then.

Then about half a year ago I bought a Fujitsu UH572 with Windows 8 pre-installed from the factory.where around every 20 minutes there's a 5 second window with choppy playback of sound, no matter which player used. VLC, Google music, youtube, Gom player etc..

This issue is far beyond ridiculous, considering Win 8 is meant to be Microsoft's big save, re-inventing the hole user experience on PC. So far I have next to nothing bad to say about the years I've spent using Win 7 x64, in contrast to Win 8 which so far has given nothing but anger management issues.

QuickTime Files Are Choppy And Jittery During Playback In Windows 8

Oct 19, 2012

For some reason quicktime files are choppy and jittery during playback in Windows 8. I have the latest Quicktime installed with no other codecs.

I tried playback in the quicktime player as well as in adobe products (premiere, after effects, etc.).

Here's a preview of what the playback looks like: [URL] ...

The same rotating star video plays fine on my windows XP machine.

Network / Sharing :: Choppy Video Over Home Network

May 20, 2013

I have a very fast internet connection and video plays fine on all media players on my machine with local video files and internet video but when I try to play video files from a storage drive on a shared Windows 7 machine on my home network the video will play fine for a few minutes then buffer some, then play choppy. It is very intermittent. Also when I open the Homegroup and click on a shared computer (I have several on my Home Network) it will give me an error message saying that the share is not available or cannot be found but if I wait approximately 30-45 seconds and try it again it will usually open the share. I have seen a lot of posts concerning Networking issues in Win 8, is there no fix because from all I have read it seems to be hit and miss. I really would like to get this issue resolved as this throws a monkey wrench in my plans for a HTPC.

Delay In New Folder / File To Show Up?

Oct 13, 2013

My laptop is top of the range spec one with Core i7, 8GB RAM, Dedicated GPU, every thing else work super fast, i am very annoyed by this one problem which i have been observing When ever i create a new folder/file or download a new file or rename a new file it does not immediately show up, if i try to open the renamed file it says windows cannot find that file (because its actually been renamed but does not yet show up in the folder), Every time i have to press F5 to refresh the folder or the desktop so the computer refreshes and shows the changes made (i.e new folder, renamed folder, new file etc...)

Is there a way so computer immediately shows the change rather than me having to close and open that folder or refresh the page every time i rename or create a file ?

Streaming On One W8 Box Not The Other

Sep 15, 2014

I have two Windows 8.1 boxes. The first is connected to the ethernet to the router, from the router then to my Denon amp. I can successfully see the Amp in Media Devices and even use AirFoil to stream from other applications to the amp.

But, I have a second box on Wifi (no ethernet) which is on the same homegroup but cannot see any amp listed in media devices.

Is there some thing I am missing here? Config between network adapters or something? It picked up the amplifier previously but it has now dissapeared and even AirFoil is not picking up the amp!

Shutdown Delay Over 2 Minutes After Upgrading To Windows 8.1

Mar 9, 2014

Yesterday I upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 on my Dell XPS desktop (i7-3770, 8 GB RAM). Now, when I shutdown, sleep, or hibernate, it takes over 2 minutes for the unit to do what used to take very little time. I reinstalled the video driver (both latest and two most recent version) and each time things are back to normal the first time I do it, but after that, the 2 minute, 12 second, or so, delay reappears. I have a NVidea 620 graphics card. My Acer laptop using its built-in Intel graphics system does not have this problem and never did. I am running Classic Shell on both machines. My desktop was fine before upgrading to Windows 8.1.

Desktop And Start Icons Delay At Startup?

Sep 15, 2014

My problem is simply this, when i boot my pc into windows the boot takes maybe 3 seconds to desktop, but the icons on the desktop do not appear for another 10 seconds. The same can be said for the icons in the start menu. The biggest problem is that even if i run the icon such as firefox, before the icon has fully loaded, the program will not run. No programs will run until 13 seconds after boot once the icons have loaded.

Tablets :: Screen To Turn Off After Certain Delay But Not Sleep?

To be clear, I want to have the display ONLY turn off after 3 minutes, but NEVER sleep my device.

Setting Delay Time When Deleting In-Use File

Aug 27, 2014

Windows XP has a delay time of a few seconds when deleting an in-use file. (Example: when an mp3 file is open and you delete that file, Windows XP will say that it is deleting the file for about 3 seconds, then says that it cannot delete the file, since the file is open).

I want to set the settings in Windows 8 to do exactly the same thing. Windows 8's default setting is to immediately state that the mp3 file is in use and cannot delete it. I want Windows 8 to wait for 3 seconds until it states that it cannot delete it.

Reason why I need this option is that I delete the file first, then I change the mp3 file so it is no longer in use. That's the only order of doing this thing that I do.

Delay The Time Between Monitor Off And Workstation Lock?

Sep 29, 2013

I like having my monitor power off soon after activity stops. Currently, I have it powering off after 2 minutes of inactivity. I am also very big on locking my PC when I step away. So, I also have the screen saver kick in after 2 minutes. (Of course, I never even see a screen saver because the monitor is off. And, in fact, my screen saver is set to "None". So this setting essentially means the PC is set to lock after 2 minutes.)

However, what often happens is that I'm sitting at the PC, and the monitor turns off, but I don't want it to lock. I move the mouse, and it's locked--even if I intervened within a second or two.

With Windows XP, I used to be able to use the ScreenSaverGracePeriod registry value to work around this. I've tried this with my Windows 8 system, but it doesn't work. I have tried using ScreenSaverGracePeriod as both REG_SZ and as DWORD.

Is there any way to delay the PC from locking after the monitor powers off by just a few seconds? I know I can have the monitor power off after 2 minutes but set the screen saver to 3 minutes, but I'd like to reduce the delay to a matter of seconds, if that is possible.

New Windows 8 Install - Keyboard Delay And Freeze Up

Sep 24, 2013

I installed Windows 8 standard package a few weeks ago on a AMD FX-8350/Asus MBO, 16 GB RAM, 128 GB SSD, 2x 1TB Seagate Barracuda configured as one 2 TB drive with Storage Spaces. It initially worked fine. Then when I installed a SSD optimization software from the SSD manufacturer, Samsung. I believe it was called Magician or something like that. It was a problem in that it slowed down my SSD, according to Samsung's own software, and it seemed to be the cause of keyboard freezing and/or major delay. I uninstalled it and the problem went away.

Now it has come back again. It seems to happen almost at random in any application. The mouse works fine, and never freezes, but the keyboard either has a large delay and the first character typed is lost, or it just does not respond at all. Closing the app, like IE10 and opening it again does not resolve it. Often the keyboard is still frozen.

I updated the graphics card driver to the latest from AMD. It is a Radeon HD7770. It seemed to work for a while, but it is back again. I can't think of any significant software I have installed, except perhaps the monitor calibrator, Spyder4Express. However all it should do is create a new monitor ICC profile.

The sad part is I had nearly this exact same problem with another computer years ago, and I cannot remember how I resolved it. I was using McAfee AV and ZoneAlarm, and I may have given both of them the boot. Currently all I am running is the default MS Defender AV. I've reset the Security in IE10 to default.

Can't think of more to do. I have Process Explorer and tried running it. I am not very familiar with this software, but from what I could see the processor is not loaded nor is any significant memory used when it the keyboard is locked. I can't seem to catch it doing anything bad. I checked the batteries on the keyboard as it is wireless and they are good. I have a faint recollection of having a wireless phone system that was conflicting, but since this new computer install I am using the same wireless router, same wireless phone system, and same wireless keyboard. It would seem unlikely out of the blue for them to start conflicting.

Vertical Scrolling Setting Resets To 1 Randomly Laptop

Mar 7, 2014

Every 20 or so minutes I have to keep going into my mouse settings to change the Verticle Scroll speed back up to 4, up from the default 1. This problem has been occurring since I got this laptop in november last year, and I've been up for 2 and a half hours trying to finally fix this tedious problem, I'm starting to lose hope and it's getting to the point where it makes me not want to even get on the computer. My Dell Touchpad program that came with the computer is always turned off when the mouse is plugged in, so that can't be why.

There are two ways for me to change the scroll speed, by going into the Windows 8 PC Settings>PC & Devices>Mouse & Touchpad, and the mouse properties that are in the control panel. When I change the Mouse & Touchpad settings they change the settings in the mouse properties but not vice-versa.

There is no KH-whatever file in my startup list.

Synaptics drivers for touchpad are up to date, as is the mouse driver.

My mouse is a Engage Optical Mouse, I've had it for about 2 years and I never had a problem with it on my last computer. My current laptop is a Dell Inspiron M531R-5535.

Browsers/Mail :: How To Text Red Shift During Vertical Scrolling

Feb 25, 2014

Text "Red Shift" during vertical scrolling? I've noticed it with Firefox 27.0, Pale Moon 24,3,2, and Operax64 12.14. The text on forums looks normal until I move the vertical scrollbar with the mouse. While the text is moving it takes on a red tint. As soon as the scrolling stops, it reverts to normal color. Pretty weird. Only thing I did lately was use a program to calibrate the Gamma.

How To Disable Two Finger Scrolling On Asus N56dp Series

Mar 23, 2013

I don't like the two finger scrolling on Windows 8 for Asus. It works decent but I still prefer the old fashions one finger scrolling it seems to be more fluid when scrolling through pages. For me it still feels unnatural to use two fingers; I want my Windows 8 PC back and toss the mac feature for two finger scrolling. I'm not sure why Asus added this because it really ruins my Windows 8 experience as scrolling is an essential function for workflow. I'll put it this way if one finger scrolling was enabled I would have a 10 out of 10 experience versus two finger scrolling I would have a 7 out of 10 experience.

Setup Installation :: 30 Second Boot Delay With New 250GB Samsung SSD

Jan 26, 2014

I replaced a Kingston 128GB SSD with a Samsung EVO 250GB SSD. Cloned Kingston SSD to new Samsung SSD using Acronis True Image.

Now, when I boot, it sits there for 30 seconds flashing the hard drive light blinking then proceeds to boot normally. All BIOS settings are default.

Hardware details in Specs.

Booting from the 128GB SSD was fine, no obvious delays.

What might be causing this? Could the new SSD be defective?

Hard Drive Activity - Long Delay When Going To Sleep

Apr 19, 2013

I noticed an issue with my PC. I always put my desktop into S3 sleep when not in use, normally this happens almost instantly, but now it takes 10+ seconds after the monitor goes black before the system actually powers down.

I had been using Windows 7, but a week ago I did an upgrade to Windows 8. I'm not sure exactly when this behavior started, but I just noticed it earlier today.

I have Hibernate disabled (powercfg -h off) as well as System Restore; so I don't know what could be causing this. The hard drive LED stays lit during the entire delay.
