I have been having problems with my sound on my computer as of late and I have been unable to fix the problem.
What is happening is the sound is stuttering when I play mp3s or movies; it is mainly happening in Media Center, media player but is also happening in other players.
I have tried the following to correct this problem to no avail.
- reinstalled windows hoping it is a software issue which didnt help at all
-turned off hardware acceleration for sound
- upgraded to the latest sound and video drivers
- brought another sound card
this is starting to annoy me in a big way since I love watching movies on my PC and having a cruddy sound qaulity isnt helping.
I have the following specs in my machine.
MSI 865 NEO3 mobo
Pentium 4 3.0 prescott
2 gig DDR400 ram
XP media center
1x160gig sata drive (master)
1x 300 gig sata drive
1x 300 gig IDE drive in a USB external case
I am hoping someone here has some ideas on what this could be.
PS the OS does not need reinstalling since I did a full format last night and a fresh reinstall and yet the probs persist :'(
