  • Z500 Touch is slow video playback of the external HARD disk


    I knew video slow reading (more than a minute) drive external HARD on my Lenovo Z500 touch. I used different actors updated (vlc, windows media, Media Player Classic player) who gave the same problem. I have no video experience slow game with multimedia files on the HARD drive inside (less than 15 seconds).

    So, what happens? USB problem?

    I try to boot my laptop with the power profile high performance. I was surprised to discover that the problem of the slow video playback of the external HARD drive has been resolved. When I double click on the multimedia file, it took my laptop less than 8 seconds to play. So, I does not work using HD tune benchmark.

  • Fast/slow video forward and back smoothly in flash with or without FMS?

    I want to play fast and slow video forward and backward smoothly. Otherwise it is possible increase or decrease fps video to achieve...

    with or without FMS in flash as3...

    Help, please

    The best you can do is seek() in another era and if you do it fast enough "' smooth. What it is based on is the setting of the keyframe for F4V/FLV/MP4.

    Without FMS, you are limited to tends ant () in keyframes. This means that if they value of keyframes 1 keyframe every 10 seconds, you can ask only every 10 seconds. Keep this in mind. It seeks to the keyframe closest at a time that tell you it to look for. This makes research almost impossible smoothly without tons of keyframes that add a lot of the video size.

    FMS has solved the 2 big problems. You can ask at any time with or without a keyframe here and it does not require to download the full video to look further. Progressive will require that you have already loaded the video in the field you're trying to get to. If you fast forward right on page load may not look beyond what it has downloaded.

  • My Satellite is really slow and takes about 10 minutes to open a session


    My satellite phone is really slow and takes about 10 minutes to open a session. It also takes awhile to open up applications in particular the internet. Once the internet is open, it takes a while to access the net. The application actually drags across from the scene and it looks like a curtain closing additional idling.

    Need help.



    Have you checked the CPU usage rate?
    Start the Task Manager and check if any strange background process needs the full CPU performance.

    I also recommend to check the laptop for some viruses and malware. These programs could make the laptop and the lazy BONE.

    However the portable equipment could bad work.
    You should check the memory using the Memtest86 program. It s freeware. Check the HARD drive for bad sectors and also try to defragment the HARD drive!

  • Satellite L500 - really slow

    Since I got this Satellite L500 for 3 weeks it worked really slow.

    Anyone know what I can do to speed it up, back to normal. Thanks leslie

    Hi leslie113,

    It is really difficult to talk about such things, because nobody knows how you have installed things and a lot of software can slow performance because they always running in the background.

    The easiest way is if you defragment the HARD drive at any time and uninstall all of the software that you don't need more.

    * Main * point is to use the * forum research *. You will find a large number of threads how to improve performance of Windows!

  • Satellite M70 runs for several seconds and then hangs


    I have a Satellite M70. My problem started several weeks ago with the laptop freezing. Then it blue screened a couple of times. Now when I start it, it runs for a few seconds and then hangs.

    I can't do anything because the screen is blank but the LED still show as if it was on. If I leave the phone for a day or two, and then I can start it again and the same thing happens, but if I try to start immeadiately, the screen remains blank.

    Any help would be appreciated, I had company look and they said that the LCD screen was tired, but it is not if it lights.
    Also, I tried to plug in an external monitor and it's the same thing. PLS help


    Here in the forum we can only speculate what may be the problem. I don't think anyone can say for sure why this happens. I got BSOD a few times but always after installing some shareware applications. In my case it was clearly software related issue.

    It is not easy to say why this is happening to you. You can enter the BIOS settings? Try to start your computer laptop in safe mode, just to see if it works.

  • Satellite M70: Bluetooth toggles continually on and outside

    Satellite M70 - Bluetooth enabled a few weeks ago and Logitech Bluetooth laptop mouse worked perfectly so far.

    Now BT toggles continually on and off - in Device Manager I get 5 items of BT - RFBNEP, RFHID, RFBUS and RFCOMM 5-controller USB from TOSHIBA - then it reverses to 2 points-RFCOMM and USB controller for TOSHIBA 5 - then put it back to the 5 elements and so forth, with Windows 'inserted device' survey and "deleted device" sounds.
    Windows (XP) sometimes displays a message - "USB device not recognized".

    Updated to the latest drivers and it still does the same thing.

    How can I fix it?

    Did you try a complete uninstall and reinstall your bluetooth driver? In addition, it seems to me as if there is a problem with your logitech mouse.
    You can check the mouse on another laptop / computer?

    Because, if this serious fault of the bluetooth continues on other PCs as well, so your mouse is the problem.
    Try it, perhaps this may clear some things.

  • Satellite 1800 - DVD stutters, video playback is delayed and the audio is garbled

    Hi all!

    I hope you can help me with this problem. When I try to play a DVD on my Toshiba S1800, playback stutters, video and audio wise, which of course is irritating. I was wondering if this could be a hardware malfunctions or perhsps due to a bad driver software?

    I have tried different DVD software players, and they all have the same show. I heard it could be because that the IDE controllers were not set to DMA mode, but they are on this device. Any of you have suggestions of what causes this problem?

    Thanks in advance,

    What DVD do you play? An original DVD movies or a serious media.
    Have you checked the drive with the audio CD? Is it possible to play audio CDs without worries?

    I m not 100% sure, but maybe what it s only a codec problem. If the different codecs are missing audio and video issues sometimes.

  • Slow video playback (After Effects)

    Hi guys,.

    I just downloaded after effects CC and wanted to learn how to use it. I managed to create a composition and imported some video footage of test. However, during playback of the sequence on the timeline or normal preview playback is super slow. I don't know that I did something noob somewhere in the process. I use a macbook pro 15' and have never had any game of back pain or problems with the first CC. So, any help?

    You really need to go through these resources: starting After Effects

  • Slow video playback when titles are added

    I use the first 10 Elements on iMac with 4 GB of RAM and i7 processor, and I noticed a weird behavior with the playback feature.

    Usually, it works fine but, if I add a title to a video track (EDITION-> new-> title), reading becomes very slow and sometimes it is completely frozen. I can "scrub" the timeline without any problem, but it seems that the 'play' button stops working. It happens also with simple video clips.

    Have you ever experienced similar problems on a Mac?

    Thank you.


    After that you put video, say in a title, or PiP (Picture in Picture), or add/change an effect, you should get a red line on the relevant clips. To get smoother playback, it should appear at least that/those clip, pressing the enter/return key. Note: you can limit the area of the timeline, with the WAB (work area bar).

    Hope that helps,

    -In live CD Knoppix 5.1 USB DVD... the same thing.
    -In a film, the video is slow, its not slow.
    -In a test on another comparison system, my lost 2600 P4 and P2 victory for me. less than 100 MHz in R / w.
    That's happened? hard drive? NVIDIA in the motherboard?
    Sound of footsteps hear NOW, but I don't hear anything in the right (hotel?).
    and thank you.

    You should check if you have all codecs installed that is required by your system to play movies correctly.
    I suggest to restore your system, install the latest drivers for nvidia to these sites:

    and the last pack of codec from here:

    After installation of all these things make him a comment if the problem persists...

  • Problem with video playback and color

    Whenever I try to playback video, it has the red and yellow bars vertically above my video. When I rub it, video is fine, but when it is on a fixed image looks like it of a corrupted file and export the files with the same problem. It is not the computer or camera because I can read in an editor similar like Final Cut on the same computer or on a different computer first, and I ingested several file formats (AVCHD, MP4 and MPEG 2) cameras still problem in the exact same manner.

    Is there a software framework I am missing or is there a problem with the first?

  • Satellite U940 really slow after upgrade to Windows 10


    Just upgraded the Windows 8.1. Windows 10 installation on my laptop U940-100 with 32 GB SSD for implementing caching.
    The laptop really performed very well (fast start etc.) until this upgrade.
    It seems that on the SSD caching does more.
    Anyone familiar with this problem? I can't find any useful information on the Toshiba site.

    Thanks in advance!


    I had the same problem of yours on my 940-11 K,

    I solved it very easily just by installing the drivers for fast boot Intel and Intel Rapid Storage Technology drivers.

    You can download the latest version from the Intel site, here is the link:

    I have upgraded to Windows 10, then I installed the drivers.
    After each driver installation, I did a reboot.
    SSD caching should automatically work again after these 2 steps.

    You should see an improvement in performance just after.

    I hope this will help you!
