1. Click on "Start".
2. Click "Control Panel".
3.Select the "Settings" tab and click on the "Advanced".
4. Click on the "Troubleshoot" tab.
5. Disable the hardware acceleration completely by dragging the slider to the extreme left.
I've also discovered that I can improve audio streaming by turning off video acceleration by changing the options settings in the media player being used.
But I expect all choppiness to be eradicated with more RAM coming into my laptop in 2010.
