I have a R500 - 2714-34G, 4GB Ram, Vista Business 32bit (original OS).
Since about 2-3 weeks ago, playing flash videos (youtube, yahoo movies, nfl.com) is not as smooth as before. I get horizontal lines, similar to a v-sync off setting and if I play in full screen it slows down.
I have updated to the last video drivers, the lastest BIOS, latest flash... it used to play the videos with no problem.
UPDATE: I ran the Lenovo toolbox stress test and Full system test and everything is ok hardware wise. Is this a software problem?
How to I revert the BIOS update?

I reinstalled Vista and now it's working fine. The reinstall was overdue as this pc is over 1 year old and you know Windows OS.
the only time when it works is when it actually breaks down........
