Hi a bit of advice where I am going wrong but when I change to a D chord from another chord when I up upstrum I cannot get it to ring properly am I up strumming to quick before chord is down and also is this a comin problem with beginners all other chords are fine, I hope I have made sense, cheers.
From what it sounds like, you're just not switching chords fast enough. Slow down, it'll take time before you can change between chords quickly enough. Also, yes this is common just keep practicing switching between all of your basic chords. It takes time to build muscle memory.
Assuming bdqdog diagnosed the problem correctly, this is one of the most common issues that even the most skilled guitarists are constantly working to improve and iron out. Your transitions from one chord to the other will get smoother with time. It's an on-going process of development and improvement. Even when you're good in that area...you can always become better.
This is very common, this might help with changes in general - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7DcjDp5Iexw
