Whenever I put in a dvd or cd, I get graphical and audio glitches. If the media has a visual, it will seem as if the video is lagging, and speech will be like this: "h-e-e-e-l-l-lo m-m-y na-m-m-e-e-e i-i-i-s-s s-s-o-ola-r-r-i-i-s-s.". It barely affects the playback speed, it's just the frames jump and so does the sound. This effect is mainly seen through video. If I listen to music directly off the cd, I get very slight, yet still annoying, audio glitches too. This does not affect music or videos already saved on my laptop, so I'm pretty sure it's my dvd drive. This had to have happened fairly recently because a few days ago I copied some music cd's to my laptop and I did not have these problems.
I have no idea whatsoever how to diagnose this problem. I have run virus scans, defragged, manually cleaned the laser eye thing (with no effect), and used one of those dvd cleaner discs. My drivers are also all up to date according to the "device manager". Please help!
