Solved: Need to delay video going to tv 0 to 45 seconds

Q: Solved: Need to delay video going to tv 0 to 45 seconds

I never watch TV except for sports which I like to synch to internet audio broadcasts. To synch the tv video with the audio from the web, I need the ability to pause the video 0 - 45 seconds going to the tv set.

Background: Prior to today, my old Tivo video recorder enabled me to pause the video going into my tv set even when the Tivo recorder service was turned off via DirecTV. Today, I had to get a new DirectTV Plus recorder (a replacement) and the pause feature on the DirectTV Plus recorder will not pause the video unless I turn on the DirectTV recorder service ($72 a year I do not want to pay).

What kind of card for my computer do I need to give me the ability to pause tv video 0 - 45 seconds?

Thank you for your responses.

Good morning. I'm not sure if this is SP2 related or not. When I change web sites it now takes 7 seconds to open pages. Once I have gone to the site once the next time is immediate. I have deleted all files and cookies under tools in explorer. I have DSL. I'm on XP. I've run SystemWorks Win doctor, clean sweep and adaware. If I close IE and reopen and then go to the same web site it again takes 7 seconds. I noticed that when Adaware runs it scans for several seconds on "browser cache" yet when I do a search on the c drive for all cache or temp files there are none that are large. Where would the browser cache be? What else might cause this, SP2?
Thanks
 

A:Web Delay 7 Seconds

I'm gaining on it. I turned off all services and everything was fine. I finally narrowed it down after several hours to Remote access auto connection manager. When it's enabled it takes 7 seconds to go to any page when it's disabled everything works fine. I'm not sure if someone is connecting me to a remote site to copy everywhere I go on the web or what. Any ideas?

Hi guys, I have the following sound problem on my newly installed Windows 10. When I don't use audio on my PC, meaning not watching any videos or listening to music, let's say, reading an article - it seems that my sound card goes to sleep after a few minutes.

Then, I try to play a song in WMP for example - the first 2 seconds or so I don't hear anything, then the sound card "wakes up" or something and the audio is back with no interruptions or anything like that. I mean there is no problem with the sound itself. So, if I'm not at my computer, I don't hear any shorts sounds at all. I mean system sounds or new incoming mail sounds etc. Because by the time sound card is "awake", the sound has already ended.

I went through all possible settings in Windows, power saving modes, reinstalled drivers for my motherboard... I mean everything I could think of. Nothing helps. Does someone have a solution for this? Thank you in advance.

The sound card is built-in, on Gigabyte B85M motherboard.

After I boot my Windows 7 (6gb RAM) SSD drive laptop, if I open anything on the desktop, there is a delay - it opens the white box (which is blank), then after a some seconds, it populates with the contents of the folder. After that, I can open anything on the desktop time and time again and it will open instantly with all the contents showing - - BUT - - if I open something else (browsing the internet for example) or working within a program OR do not click anything on the desktop for 30 SECONDS (I have timed it) the dealy happens again !!!
 
I open a desktop folder from the start - delay - - - open them again perfect for as long as you want - leave the mouse alone for 30 seconds and then open something - delay again ...........
 
I have used countless Malware, Adware and virus checkers, registry cleaners etc. Used MSCONFIG, closed all at start up and tried it but it still does it - I tired it in Safe Mode and it works perfectly ........ I have done a )poor) video on YouTube to show the fault, however, the delay is often longer than shown) -

A:Delay opening Desktop Folders if nothing is clicked for 30 seconds!!

Have you checked your RAM to ensure that you are not using it up? In short, I am asking if it is possible that you are thrashing your hard drive because you just don't have enough RAM to run the system, so what is in memory works great until it isn't used for a bit and the OS places it on the HD for retrieval later using virtual RAM. Even an SSD has a delay in read and write, it isn't RAM.
 
Just because you have 6GB of RAM listed doesn't mean your system is actually using it. You might have a bad stick, bad bay, or you have so much running in the background that it is full. It is possible even that the RAM itself is the cause of the delay, especially if it has a slow clock speed or is dying.
 
To be honest there is not enough information provided without viewing the video (I am at work, so cannot do so) to think it is anything other than a RAM issue.
 
edit - added statement after reviewing original posting and noticed that RAM amount was mentioned.

When I input something with my keyboard, the touchpad/trackpoint doesn't accept any clicking for about ~0.5 seconds. Its a small delay but it is driving me insane. T460 laptop, Synaptics Clickpad V1.1 Things I've tried:-  Reinstalling drivers, and restarting laptop. Nothing changed.-  Turned palm rejection to minimum. This fixes an earlier problem where the mouse would stop moving with keyboard presses, but it doesn't affect the clicking delay.-  Went into the registry editor, found 'synaptics' under 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE' but couldn't find any variables that indicate a delay after keyboard presses. I'd really appreciate any help with this. ~3 hours of googling isn't helping me.

A:Slow boot time (~90 seconds) - Plug and Play delay

My computer give me >120 second in order for me to start using.

Startup usually may check and confirm many type of setting, etc.

For example, if you desktop is empty, it will take 10 second and you can start using.

All items on the desktop are to be verified as true, otherwise it may try to find the link.

When you insert any USB device into the USB port, the system usually take every 5 second to check if there is any change.
Hence, within 5 second, the USB device will be detected.
Then it have to check if that device did connected to USB port-2 before, it can be used immediately.
If it check as the device is never connected to the USB port-2, it then have to find the USB driver to install and saved, remembered.

Then again, for 90 seconds, it may not matter much, as just turn on the computer before, say, to take a bath first.

Hi All,
 
I have noticed a quite annoying delay in google chrome (Btw I just reinstalled it now).
It takes between 5 to 10 seconds (Sometimes more) for it to start loading any address i enter. For instance, entering www.bleepingcomputer.com then hitting enter, there will be an unepected wait/delay/silence for many seconds before the browser start trying to lookup and load the page.
 
Second observation: Navigating to a link within an already opened website loads instantly (This means that the problem only occurs when i enter new website)
 
Third Observation: Navigating to bleepingcomputers.com from a tab with www.yahoo.com already loaded will firstly read "waiting for y3.analytics.yahoo.com" for some seconds before starting to load the new web. While navigating to a site from a new tab will also say waiting for www.google.com before starting to load the new web.

On the weekend I had a very surprising crazy malware/virus/trojan attack, I was sitting there speaking on Skype and then 3 different malware aps popped up on the screen, the task manager was locked, safe mode didnt work, my browsers were hijacked and covered in toolbars and I couldn't visit any sites, etc etc.
I thought AVG + AdAware would have protected me against this stuff but obviously not.
Anyway, I installed Malware Bytes, Spybot and ZoneAlarm, and with all this stuff installed and after about 50 reboots my system was clean and back to normal.

However, since then, whenever I search for something in google, and then click a link, it says Connecting to server <www.whatever.co.uk> (the link I followed) and then stops on a white page with no content, the status bar says Done.
I wait 5 seconds, then it starts loading again, and 80% of the time will then display the page, so it's annoying but I can at least still use the net. Though the other 20% of the time I don't ever get to the page, instead I get a piece of broken script code of some sort, and in this code it always references http 23.meningre.com . I've googled meningre and there is NOTHING about this, I would've thought at least one other person would be experiencing this.

Anyway things I've checked: HOSTS file looks ok, internet connection settings doesn't specify a proxy or DNS servers. no weird processes running. ran hijack this - looks clean

any other suggestions?

Good afternoon everyone, i'd like to ask for some insight on my case which could help me sort out this problem of mine.

If i remember right, it started around 1-2 months ago at the most. My Lenovo laptop started skipping both audio and video for 1 seconds while making a "BUZZING" sound effect randomly between 2-5-10-60 minutes intervallums. It happens whatever i do: watch a movie / listen to music / play a game / watch youtube / watch streams, anything really. This youtube videos shows basically my problem, while for me, it doesn't happen as frequently in video playback, as for that individual. I wouldn't call it lagging constantly, rather just skipping frames randomly.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CF9Pvdsz0UM&t=0m47s

So afterwards i've tried to search the internet for possible sollutions and if i remember right i did most of these things already with little to no success:
- The top comment on that youtube link suggest to uninstall the IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers and let windows reinstall others through the windows update. This is the only sollution that HELPED ME a little bit i think. It might be a placebo effect but i think the freezing/skipping turned down from 1.5-2 seconds to 0.5-1.5 seconds.

Alright I may not be the most computer savy person around but I've always managed to find and repair computer problems (with the exception of crashed HDDs) but this problem is odd and is driving me NUTS!

Symptoms:
Gaming HD

When I'm just on the desktop (no high demand programs/games) the computer cursor freeze (stutter) for 0.5 to 2.0 seconds every 5 to 10 seconds. Additionally the USB mouse occasionally disconnects/reconnects (with windows notification sound). I have moved USB mouse to different ports with no change. This makes it almost impossible to do anything. However youtube, netflix and DVDs (VLC) play without interruption during the stuttering.

The same occurs when playing any game only the screen freezes as well.

The same stuttering occurs on a completely separate HD which is in no way connected to the pure Gaming HD. (points to more of a hardware problem I think)

This started late last week and the only major change I did was installing homeworld remastered however I really don't think that is the cause as the separate HD also stutters.

Attempted Troubleshooting:
-The CPU and Vid Card were both pretty dusty so I took them out, cleaned and re-applyed thermal paste on the CPU --> no change to stuttering

I have an inferred temp gun and cleaning the dust did improve the temps (slightly) but no effect on the stuttering.

-Memory Diagnostic --> no problems

First i want to do some backstory. I've had (some of) this computer for a long time. Sometimes when i have plugged in a new audio device - something as mundane as a pair of headphones - it has come with a significant audio delay. But it has always corrected itself after a few days. I recently did some hardware upgrades and it worked like a charm, but even more recently i bought a new set of speakers and suddenly i have the opposite problem. All video was irregularly delayed ranging between 50 and 200 ms. Is has now stabalized at 40 ms which has persisted for months. It is obvious for both online and local videos. I am not sure i notice it for OS operations or games.

My motherboard, processor and monitor are all old, and remaining hardware is new. I've checked with two different monitors and the delay appears the same, but both of them are old LCDs, so maybe that's not so useful. I used to have an audio card, but that didn't work with the upgrade for some reason so i now plug into the motherboard.

I've had this problem for quite sometime. When I play a clip of any video or sound that goes over about 50 minutes it starts to delay, the sound and vid will delay, doesn't matter if it's a dvd, cd, or something off the harddrive, but I don't think it happens with streaming. It's always between 45 and 50 minutes of the video or sound clips, but if I restart the program that's playing them it's fine till the next 45 or 50 minutes. I use WMP and it does it also with the dvd player I have, it always happens between those times no matter what player it is. I could be using it in the background while running a application and still have the same issue, the app itself will be ok though.. I just restart the player and it's fine. I have no idea to where even start with this... Any input is appericated..

This is my first post, I'll try to be as specific as possible.

I installed Windows XP Darklite on an older Abit Th7 with a 1.7 GHz P4 and an ATI Radeon 9600 pro 256mb. I'm running directx 9c and the radeon catlyst 8.5 driver.

At first I had a terrible time just getting the video drivers to work without going to the bluescreen with an infinite loop error. By installing the 8.5 Catlyst driver and removing the ati components from startup it runs error free but the video is slow. I'm not really sure how to describe it. Video plays fine but if you try to drag a window across the desktop it lags. Like when you spin your mouse around really fast and you can see a trail of pointers. Every time I try to move something across the desktop it's slow and leaves a trail.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

A:Windows XP video lag/delay/ghosting

What you might want to try is removing once again all the software and drivers for your card... Do a reboot, at the start up if it says found new hardware just ignor that it will go away once you add the drivers.... go back to the radeon driver page and select download driver only.... The catalyst could be the cause... This is what I had to do and it worked like a charm!

PSU: CoolerMaster GX-750W
Display: Acer v193w
Audio: Fatal1ty headphones, Hi-Cube speakers
Input devices: mid-range a4tech products

So, I had had gtx650Ti for some time until it started performing very poorly (natural death, in the name of technological progress I guess).
Along with obvious frame drops though, for some reason came input lag.
I upgraded to GTX770 relatively recently and the problem still exists, except it is worse now.
Since the problem started I have changed my hard drives too.
Suprisingly, after getting the new GPU, audio lag came into play to make the matters worse, or so I think it did (maybe I just didn't notice it before, but it is a bit unlikely).

What could be the problem?
I have cleaned my registry, only run essential programs and services, don't constantly use an antivirus, have the most recent GPU drivers with setting optimised purely for performance (along with disabled screen scaling), don't use mouse\peripherals softwares or enhancement options of my monitor...
HPET isn't available in my BIOS settings, by the way.
I have successully ran a lagless computer using the current display (got it directly after an CRT monitor a good few years ago, so I would feel the difference in resposiveness) before.

Any more suggestions?

No matter what type of media I try to play, it doesn't start immediately. Instead, it "freezes" for several seconds -- sometimes up to 2-3 minutes -- before it begins. If it is a video, the progressbar will typically progress during the freeze, causing the video to play at 2x speed to catch up.

This happens with local audio and video files, streaming audio/video files from my own NAS, Youtube, Instagram/Vine clips, etc. This has been occurring for a while but haven't been able to find any solutions.

My OS is Windows 10 Pro, but Windows 8 Pro was also affected. I have Shark007 Standard codecs installed. I have tried using multiple media players such as VLC and PotPlayer; they all experience the same issue. Same with browsers, I have tried Firefox and Chrome to no avail.

Title I wanted to use: Windows XP SP3: Slow Startup / Boot: Black Screen Delay & Delay after logging in

For some reason I can't preview my post when I use this title: I have tried removing all the punctuation, including the &, which doesn't work and have tried other titles with the same character length, which does work.

Problem Begins Here:

When I turn on or restart my computer, the boot up time from the time I press the power button to the time the final icon on my desktop loads is slow. I am not too concerned about the time after my desktop is shown since I have several items to run at startup.

The two areas of concern are:

1) After the XP logo is shown, my screen goes black. This lasts for about 17 to 19 seconds. I don't know when this started as I rarely restart my computer. The problem is worse if I startup in Safe Mode. It's about 1 minute and 10 seconds before I see anything on the screen, and another 40 seconds before something else is shown on screen. Note: In order to not to have to waste time pressing F8 and choosing Safe Mode, I enter safe mode by specifying so in msconfig. The options I chose were /SAFEBOOT and Minimal.

2) After I login, there is a delay of about 30 to 45 seconds before the desktop is shown. Windows stays at the login confirmation screen during that time. This I feel has happened recently.

Normal Boot (i.e. Not Safe Mode):

After the Windows 10 April 2018 update, my Lenovo Yoga 3 14 laptop is not starting immediately. It's not boot-up delay, it's a device start-up delay like after pressing the power button, just keyboard back light blinks once and nothing will happen and it's taking 35 to 40 seconds (earlier it's 1 to 3 seconds) after pressing the power button to show Lenovo UEFI screen along with Windows loading animation (this boot-up is quick like earlier versions about 5 to 7 seconds). Re-installed the complete OS (clean install) and re-installed the BIOS (Version BACNA0WW and BIOS date 07/15/2016). But nothing helps. Changed to earlier version of windows with clean install (the one with creators update, but issue not resolved.) Formatted complete drive and cleared all partitions (including OEM) and installed on a fresh partition, re-flashed BIOS, but nothing helps. Later I thought about hardware issue. Opened laptop, removed display connector, cleaned and attached, but issue not resolved. So, it's not a new Windows issue and It might be a problem with BIOS and it needs to be updated. Since my laptop is mote than 3 years old, Lenovo probably don't bother about updating this BIOS. Any solution that I missed?Thanks in advance.

Hi everyone. When playing CD, DVD, RealPlayer, any other player, and viewing video from Yahoo! (for example), the sound and video skips every 2 seconds for about 1 ms. I recently installed Creative's Sound Blaster Audigy SE. Still skips. I have checked all devices and the message is that they are all working correctly. Any ideas? Thanks! (Comp info on profile)
 

A:Sound & Video skip every 2 seconds...

I have some ideas:

- Since you're talking about Yahoo!, do you have a fast internet connection?

- Did you install this? http://www.download.com/AVI-Codec-Pack/3000-2169_4-10553815.html?tag=lst-4-9

I just recently did a complete restoration of my computer. Now when I try to play a video it runs for about 30 seconds and then stops dead, not sound or anything but just a still picture. No matter what I do I cannot get the video going again. What might this problem be and how could it be corrected?

When playing a video please leave the taskmanger open and tell us waht the ram, and cpu are doing when it stutteres

I've had a dell inspiron  15 7000 series (7559) for about a month and so far I have loved it.  Yesterday when I went to shut it down, it didn't shut down like it normally does.  A unexpected window popped up, but the display shut off before I could read it.
Today I've been having trouble with video playback.  It's not just on one application or site.  Netflix.  YouTube.  Facebook.  Even the free Microsoft Solitaire Program that came with the computer. Approximately every 10 seconds there is a jump in the playback or program.  It's almost as if another application is interrupting the current processes.  I've also tried to go into the Dell Help and Support Application, which I've had no problem previously accessing.  And for some reason its saying it can't connect.  Any help would be appreciated.

Hi avi66,

Do you have a spare videocard to test on your computer? If not, you can try purchasing one and test it on your computer to see if the culprit is a faulty videocard. Make sure to keep the receipt just in case you need to return it. You can also try performing a windows check-disk repair and see if this helps out too. Good luck and hope you get your computer issues resolved.

Guys, I am at a total loss. I have no idea what's causing this, but any and all Flash video modules are giving me this problem. I start playing a video, then just a few seconds later, the video pauses, loads for a second and then resumes with no audio. The only fix I've found is to restart my browser, but that's become completely maddening. I feel pretty certain it's a Flash issue because everything else (system sounds, iTunes, WMP, VLC, games) all output sound like they ought to, but any Flash video player gives me trouble, and it's a cross-browser thing, too. I typically use Chrome, but, thinking maybe it was a browser issue, I switched to Firefox for a couple of days and, when that didn't do it, I went to IE, but the problem still persists. I've scanned for malware, adware, spyware and viruses using Malwarebytes, Adaware, Spybot and Avast and I'm squeaky clean. I've reinstalled Flash, I've installed codec packs, uninstalled codec packs, uninstalled programs, reinstalled programs and run all my browsers with and without add-ons and I've got nothing. I've searched high and low for results, but I haven't really found anything. Some results I've seen suggest deleting some registry entries, but a lot of information is rather dated. If anybody can help me out, I'd turn flips in the air.

A couple of things jump out immediately. Your specs say you have 5GB of RAM, an odd number. That suggests that you added some RAM at some point. Mismatched or failing RAM modules can cause TDRs. You might want to test those sticks one at a time in Slot 1 before anything else. RAM problems can explain some of your other issues too.

Looking at some of your other posts I see you are running dual monitors also. This could be exposing a defect in your 9500GT that is triggering the TDRs. You should test with only one monitor attached to see if this is the case.

You are running lots of stuff on that box, so I would be as deliberate as possible in doing the diagnostic work.

Im installing a new video card (MTS Nvidia 250gts) and replacing my older Nvidia 7800 i believe it is. Im at work right now so im not 100% on this.

When i uninstalled the old drivers and replaced the video card with the new one, the computer would boot fine and let me use everything. As soon as i install a driver for it, when it asks for a reboot, the computer loads up regularly but then after the Windows XP loading screen goes into "Off Mode in 5 Seconds".

I have put the old card back in and redownloaded the old drivers and it works fine. Card requires 450 W power and i have 550W. Everything is connected, power and all. I just cant seem to figure out why the driver is crashing my computer.

Thanks
 

A:Installing New Video Card - Off Mode 5 Seconds

Think it could well be your PSU. You have to remeber its not just the card taking power, its the CPU, hard drives, dvd units, USB ports- all the bits n pieces. Dont know what CPU you got, but a lot will take a good 80 W, which doesnt leave a lot over for everythibng else. Say 10W for an HD or a DVD unit, and your probably hitting it hard.
Secondly, a PSY at 550W probably isnt putting that out. Most ratings are above what you actually get.
Last one, check the current on the 12V rail, I think the 200s are looking at 24 or 26A at a minimum.

If you go for a new PSU, I suggest a good brand, 600 or preferablt 750W to make sure all goes well.
Hope you sort it, and welcome to TSG

Greeting all,

I have relatively minor but annoying problem I hope you can resolve for me.
The problem I have is when you double click any video file (AVI, MKV, MP4 etc) and open with Windows Media Player, there is no problem at all, It opens immediately. I however do not like WMP and have installed KMP Player (and Media Player Classic a couple of days ago).
The problem now is that when you double click the video files it takes up to 12 seconds for KMP Player to play the clip, (KPM player loads instantly by the way). This has only occurred over the last 3 weeks or so. Before it worked flawlessly.
I was going to do a system restore to around a month ago but could only go back 2 weeks so that was out of the question. I installed MPC 3 days ago and although the problem is still there it takes 5 seconds to play (rather than 12 seconds with KMP) using the sane media files. I have made KMP the default for the file types and still have the problem. I made sure indexing was on (in case that was the problem) and have Googled day and night for a solution. I feel this is a windows problem and not KMP or MPC issues.
What I have noticed is within Task manager, when you first double click the file, KMP immediately loads and only uses around 4meg of memory until the file is loaded then jumps to 18meg and plays ok. So what is happening in those 12 seconds? The same can be said with MPC player only its 6meg jumping to 25 meg in the ... Read more

A:Slow loading video files (up to 12 seconds)

Do you have any Codec Packs installed, like FFMeg or Klite?

I never heard of KPM Player nor MPC..... I recommend VLC player myself never had issues with it.

Also try updating your graphics drivers through the manufacture of your machine's website by looking up the make and model of your machine.
Also try defraging the drive that the videos are stored in, also a disk cleanup.

My I ask why you downloaded and installed these other media players When Windows Media player played your videos fine?

Hello!

I got myself a video card <ASUS GeForce 6600, (256 MB) AGP>.
I pluged it in. When I turn the PC on, the monitor is in standby (orange led), all fans start, I can't hear any beeps and after 5 seconds it suddenly turns off.

My system is:

ASUS P4V8X-X (motherboard)
Intel pentium 4 @ 2.4 GHZ
3 x 512 DDR
DVD-RW
160GB HDD
ASUS GeForce 6600
Floppy
2 fans (one on the CPU and a smaller one)

My first guess was that my 450W (no name) PSU couldn't handle it.

But then I tried the videocard on another PC with a 350W PSU and it worked like a charm.
When I put the card and the PSU (the 350W one) on my system, it turns off again.

What I tried so far:
- update bios
- reset bios (+load defaults)
- unpluged everything except videocard and HDD.

My system works perfectly without the videocard.
When I put the videocard in it turns off.

Could anyone help me?

My Vista Ultimate x64 version had been running great for about a month an half. Then one day the audio began to get choppy. The audio works fine for about 30 seconds and then it seems like it get distroted like people are talking slower. Im thinking this might not just be an audio problem with the driver but maybe a video problem.

So I installed the newest WHQL supported video drivers. Still didn't fix the problem.

Then I installed the newest realtek AC 97' audio drivers. Still didn't work.

I even formated Windows Vista Ultimate x64 and did a clean install and I still have the problem. Anybody have any ideas?

Could this be a codec problem?

A:Sound is choopy every 30 seconds while watching video

If it occurs after a fresh install of windows, it is either one of two things.

1) Failed hardware
2) Faulty drivers and/or driver conflicts

When it occured, did you check to see if Microsoft had updated the hardware drivers via windows update?

Anyway, I would try using different driver version, possibly the second most recent ones. Also make sure you have the latest (or 2nd latest) codec for the type of video/audio you are watching. If you are watching any of the types with built in support it is probably drivers.

One more thing to check, when the sound slows down... have task manager open to see if something is spiking the cpu usage. If so, that is your cause.

hi i just bought this new pc to use as a destop hooked up to my tv via dhmi on my samsung 4k tv,now my issue is i have video stuttering with this system when watching videos on youtube or a film on  usb key no matter the source it will stutter ... so my question is ... is this normal with this kind of system?  i would assume a dual core 3.2 ghz 6 th generation i3 would be able to at least play videos smoothly.     ive installed vlc player because i know it efficient and same results... no smooth video playback. i have the idea of maybe buying a new video card low profile such as a asus 730GT 2 gig low profile which from what i read takes up to 75 watts but i dont know if the small 180 watts psu will be enought.   anyways if i was able to know if its normal with this pc to have video stuttering when watching youtube and other movies  that would be nice... also i think HP sucks balls because they say they dont support this product when i just bought it brand new in December 2016!  **bleep** hp!?    anyways im tempted to return this pc back to bestbuy for full refund as good of a deal if it stutter when i play videos or if i installed a simple driver install and the cpu goes  100% usage  its not even woth 400$ at this point very dissapointed in HP.
