compaq s4120wm
60gb 7200 rpm hd
says dma is on
768mb ddr
athlon 2ghz cpu
nvidia 6200(Same problem with ati radeon 9600)
audigy2
twinview for two monitors
2.6.16

despite even TURNING on xvmc and getting cpu usage very low, multitasking while video in mplayer, xine, mythtv, flash plugin(like youtube.com) starts chopping the video

I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT TO DO?????!?!?
I was told it may be the motherboard, but i don't know! what can i do??? the cpu usage is not high, so what's the deal? mplayer with xvmc stays under 10%, so why in the world does it skip and jut and say it's not fast enough when i multitask?
