    I got a Dell Inspiron 8500 and the problem is that when I play back DVDs in
    battery operation the movie stutters a little. Is this normal? Anyone with
    the same problem? What helps?

    Thanks in advance.

  2. I'm not sure about the 8500 but some laptops automatically run the CPU at a
    slower speed while on battery power. This is to make the battery last
    longer. There's a setting, maybe in BIOS or in Control Panel, to tell the
    system to run a full speed all the time.
