    First thing I would do is install the Lenovo drivers and especially the Intel video driver. You should be able to download them from the Lenovo web site. Next, codecs. I use Klite codecs.

    that is right but you can use the W7 drivers as well because they are written for your machine

    2 GB of RAM for a 64bit OS? I don't think so. You should either get more RAM or use 32bit OS, in the first place.

    well identify the chipsets that need drivers and they can be found.. also hardware device id helps but thats a hard step for some.
    i do know this laptop comes with either intel or nvidia Video .. or both.
    and conexant HD audio chipset

    did u check windows updates Optional section ??

    what is bios version. im sure its version 38.. but theres one for x86 and xp .. and one for x64 NIWEx215_X64.exe and thats the one u need for win 8 as its not x86.

    Recommended Memory is 4GB for 64bit systems! And Video's playing will need quite a bit of resources, which include quite a bit of memory. I would first try to update the memory! Take the machine to an Dealer/Service and ask it's possible, thereafter, if it's possible, ask for a test and run a video to see it gets better or not!

    no, really, this is an actual bug with some default 8.1 drivers and flash. (maybe this was what OP meant to say?)

    this definitely is NO bug of 8.1. Some hardware does not respond properly to the OS, that's it. If it were a bug, I'd have it as well :p

    Same problem with my hp compaq presario cq60.
    Windows 8 on this machine is totally f**k*d!
    Windows 8.1 is much better, but from time to time the problem appears again.
    When CPU gets high (and the fan runs at full speed), the windows hang and you have to wait 10-20 sec CPU to stop to "think".

    Did your CPU has a problem? Or it's an old one and 1 core only?

    If the temperature of the CPU get up, it also slows down the working and, in many CPU's, it cut's some power cycle for a short time to reduce the heat. That could also come from low CPU Cache and low memory because to write back to CPU Cache is much faster that use the emulated Cache of Hiberfil and Pagefile, which would also increase the work and therefore heat of CPU! This processes work closely together.

    Dont suggest a codec pack, they usually end causing more problems than solutions, instead use a media player like VLC or MPCHC, both have built in codecs.
