My Problem is...
Any sound that is played crackles/stutters. This also affects videos such as youtube to slow down and stutter the video also. I thought this might be codec related, however it happens when I get a message on MSN also, the alert sound will crackle/stutter.
Although when doing the sound test with the soundmax software that came with the mobo (onboard sound card) it doesn't stutter.
It's been doing this for a week or two now and I would like some help correcting it. I have had recent hard drive issues, ie a couple of times a few months ago the pc would refuse to turn on, saying no operating system found. Don't know if the recent sound problem is related to this or not. I will at some point erase my hdd and bin it and use my secondary drive as the main one.
going off on one now.
