✔ Best Answer
Usually buffering is due to either your network connection being slow or because the Internet is busy. What speeds are you getting?

Please do not double post - stay on here now. On your other one you said:
"Does more memory or ram help?"
"What should I look for, please help!"
This is unlikely to be a RAM issue.

Thanks Derek, my Internet connection comes from Charter Cable, speed at 10MB.
My speed works fine with my Kindle Fire.

Go here and see if you have the latest version of Flash:
http://www.adobe.com/software/flash...

If you are using more than one browser then go to the above "from each browser".

If you get any new download then make sure you uncheck any unwanted programs.

What browser (or browsers) are you using?

Mainly I use CHROME.

Actually I'm considering a new computer, what should I be looking for to get good results ?

Do you get the same problem if you use IE?

I would be inclined to ask your question about a new computer on the Hardware forum. It all depends on what you intend to use it for so list that on there at the same time. Lenovo seem to have a good reputation but see what others say.
