New laptop, major youtube lag

Nathan Lockhart

Hi all, I recently purchased an HP 200-2b43dx notbook, and the specs are as follows:

4 gb ram
processor: amd e-300 apu w/radeon hd graphics 1.0 ghz
64 bit os
273 gb harddrive

The problem I'm experiencing is very bad video lag. I haven't tried anything other than youtube videos, but they are very bad. Its not a connection issue. I'm running a 5 year macbook on the same one with lower specs and it plays the videos fine. generally the computer seems slower than I would have expected. I'm kind of new to windows, so any help would be very much appreciated.
The AMD E-300 is laughably weak. I would not be surprised in the slightest if it struggled with youtube videos. With that said, try installing the latest video drivers.
