How To Stop My Computer From Buffering Videos All The Time?

So I got this laptop on christmas so its not very old. It has never really had this problem but it is always buffering videos now. I think it might be the new internet connection because we moved into a new house about less than a month ago. The computer itself isn’t slow it just buffers videos SO much. I use Google Chrome and adblock. I have windows 8 and it is a Toshiba laptop. Not sure if that information helps all that much but yeah.

Which Computer Should I Buy?

I have the choice of two different laptops to replace my dying Sony Viao (currently on windows vista)
I do like the format of windows I have at the moment (apart from it’s various problems), so I’ve never used a windows 7 or 8 machine.
Laptop 1 – http://www.tesco.com/direct/toshiba-l750…
Laptop 2 – http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/lenovo-g580…
The money isn’t really a problem. But I’m very unsure on windows 7 vs windows 8 and could use some guidance.
I’m a teacher, so spend a fair amount of time making resources on the microsoft office software, whilst browsing the net etc.
Any advice you could give on either of these two machines would be fantastic!
(By the way – I appreciate that some people love Apple products, but they’re just not for me)

Computer Gaming Help Please?:)?

Hey! At Christmas me and my dad decided that we wanted to start a youtube channel and play together for a bit of fun:) But, the laptop we have at the moment is certainly not good enough to support games like skyrim, borderlands 2, or even minecraft without major lag! So, we have been saving up for computer parts specified to minimize lags with games, and we thought we’d buy the parts because it will be cheaper and more fun to build. But, we have no clue on what parts are good, on Ebay it gives details about GHZ or ram but we are unsure whether in reality it is the best for gaming. So, we were looking for cheap parts of a computer that are really good for gaming, and can have skype and steam etc up and have close to no lag. Things like graphics cards, motherboards etc… so is it possible? -Thank you very much!

My Computer Is In A Restart Cycle!?

Alright, so since christmas in 2012 I’ve been trying to build a computer. All the parts in there are pretty much recent technology except my Thermaltake Toughpower 700w and my P67a-GD65 (B3). I’ve got everything in there except my hard drive and video card. I just got RAM today expecting that it would solve a problem that the computer has been having for awhile. What happens is that it will start up and then turn off and then start up and then turn off and then… etc. It will do this indefinitely. I figured it was doing that because it had all the core components except the RAM (Motherboard and CPU) My guess was that without the RAM it couldn’t POST succesfully so it restarted seeing if it could post correctly the next time. This theory was strengthened when I had installed the CPU and the time from when it turned on to turned off was lengthened. I thought it was able to get farther through POST when I had installed the CPU. Now, today I’ve installed the RAM and it hasn’t accomplished what I expected. I’ll describe exactly what I did in installing it. I tried installing it in what I thought was the first and third DIMMs (which they were not. They were the 2nd and 4th I think) Anyway, at first I TRIED to install the two sticks in the blue slots. They didn’t fit because of my heatsink, so I switched the fan from one side of the heatsink to the other. Then I fit the stick into the blue slots and the problem still persisted. I just thought that the slots I had put the sticks in were actually DIMM 2 and DIMM 4, so I just switched the sticks to the black slots. Once I put the ram sticks in the black slots I turned it on and it stopped restarting! It stayed on with no shutting down. Although, once I had done that I realized there was enough room to move my fan to the other side again. So I turned it off and took out the RAM stick to put the fan on then put the RAM stick back in the slot, but now when I turn it on the problem has come back. I’m afraid I might have killed one of the sticks when I took it out or messed something up. Ihaven’tt triedresettingg CMOS yet so I’ll do that, but in the meanwhile can somebody suggest something? I’ve worked on this for so long and I’m afraid that it might not work.

Changing A Computer Motherboard/ Processor?

So my computer has a intergrated processor and people were suggesting I should buy a new motherboard. I have a AMD phenom ll processor from my old laptop and I was also wondering if that would fit into a computer.
My computer: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&docname=c03521832#N155
The motherboard: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Asus-M5A78L-M-USB3-Motherboard-Socket/dp/B0054U7HIO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1373126758&sr=8-1&keywords=motherboard
