...i watch something on youtube or similar.

 

Freezes and buzzes for about a minute/minute and a half then starts playing as normal. It can then just randomely freeze etc at any time.

 

Downloaded stuff plays fine.

I used to have the same problem, my laptop is 5 years old, Anyways I figured out it was overheating a lot so assumed that's what the problem was. I opened it up to clean all the shit that had gathered inside it over 5 years and applied new thermal compound to the CPU and GPU. Now it runs a treat and I cant even tell its 5 years old  :)

 

Orrrr it could just be bad bandwidth LOL  O0

Are you watching Flash videos, perchance?

 

It's notorious for being a ridiculous resource hog. Try switching to the HTML5 player if one is available on the sites you're using, otherwise update Flash Player.
