Hi middo1022,
welcome to the forum and sorry about the late answer but i didn't see your post until now....

Anyway, try this media player FAQ and if you need further help then please post back:

You could try updating your drivers to the latest versions if their are any... Try checking your laptop makers web site for your model and any updates will be there. Don't forget that vista drivers will do (usually) if you can't find any 7 drivers...

Maybe there are too many processes running on your computer, bogging it down.

Restart, don't open anything but the movie and see if it plays OK.

If not, post what' sin msconfig starting up with Windows.

Go to Start > Run, and type msconfig, then click the Startup tab.

If you could post your PC's specifications under the UserCP at the top of the page, this would be helpful.

Most information can be gathered by going to Start > Run, and type msinfo32.

Now expand the various components section and input that information.
