  • Online video problem 100% Processor Utilization

    Any know issues with power performance when viewing online video from sites like you tube? I have the U230 with the MV-40 processor and HD 3200 card. No problems with video stored locally on hard drive / usb storage, but online video is terrible. 100% processor utilization, and that is not even HD, it happens at 360 and not even full screen just a standard window.
