Smile overclocking or what

one of my buddy is having a peculiar problem .one day suddenly when he starts palying music..it seems that sometimes it skipping or sometimes it plays so fast.now i think it is a problem with a the drives but he says that some tech had suggested him that it is the overclocking of the cpu..nad he claims that previously he had this same problem and that had caused his hard drive to crash...
he uses real player ..i also tried other media ..but no go..

any ideas will be appreciated ...

i agree with Gl\l0m!$h. I think the music cd might be scratched or too many programs running in the back. One other possibility is that your cd-rom reader has some dust. try cleaning it out.

I agreed with what Gl\l0m!$h said, my overclocked mu cpu too, but still can play games, not even mention about play mp3.
try burn the music file and make a virtual drive n play it. if no problem must be something wrong bout the disc, if the problem still occur, the might be your OS probelm or your sound card.
