T430 high CPU usage and video lags behind audio using Netflix

2013-11-13, 2:23 AM

While watching Netflix my CPU usage spikes up, usually at 70% or higher. Switching to Firefox vs. Chrome helps, as well as using the "Maximum Performance" setting. Moving the player to my built in monitor as opposed to my 23" LG external moniter, connected through a dock. I'm connected with ethernet, which is faster than the wireless network I have access to. I used to be able to play Netflix full screen on my external monitor, while having many other tabs open, in addition to writing a paper, all at the same time. Now I am unable to do much besides watch a movie. It does not matter what I watch. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Chrome and Silverlight. I have an intel i7 and 8 gigabytes of RAM.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
