Ive had some trouble playing back videos on my pc, taken from my s2. When I try to play them back theyre very jerky and it lags a lot in audio and video, i have tried changing frame rate/ resoloution and even tried playing back on quicktime, realplayer, windows media player and divx. I downloaded a MJPEG codec and its still slow.

My pc is fairly new, i cant diagnose the problem. Could someone help?

All the players usually use the same codecs. Yours may have become corrupted. Try downloading a new codec pack. I currently use K-lite codec pack. Got it from a friend, so I dont know the URL.

Bring your video to a friend's system, and give it a try... also, how does it play in the camera? if the memory card had problems keeping up when recording, that could also be an issue...

if your system is new (I'm assuming this may mean it's also fast), it could just be a case of fragged HD, spyware, virus, too many things running (antivirus, defrag, spyware remover, webshots,etc)...

another thing, when playing back video there is a lot of backround noise in audio and when i zoom i can slightly hear the zoom (sounds like squeaky cogs turning), then when i stop zooming it clicks. Is this normal?

The zoom sound is normal, or at least, mine does it as well. In the menu there is a "wind filter" option. Turning this on should eliminate some of the noise.

ive tested the videos on my tv and someone elses pc, they both run smoothly, so i know theres no fault with my camera.
The pc i ran the video on isnt as fast as mine but it still ran the video fine if thats any help.

If it's fine on 1 PC, and not on another, then the issue is with that PC... most likely software related (codecs, spyware/virus, too much running,etc..)
