playhead gets stuck

The playhead stops at random places on the time line then goes back to the beginning and loops. Sometimes it will play for 5 or 10 seconds, if I start from the middle it does the same, just further along instead of the beginning, always stopping when the green ends and looping back.
The actual playhead doesn't move, just a red line.

I have enough memory. I've tried purging the memory.

Thanks

Suzie

You may want to read up on the basics:

Perfectly normal for a RAM preview. If you still think something is wrong you have to provide actual system info, details about the project and composition, preview settings and so on.
