I have a Toshiba Satellite A105-S4074, and absolutely adore it, except for one itty bitty problem. When I play an audio CD on it, small pops can be heard from the speakers and the music is slow. I have determined that the pops are not emanating from the drive, so it's not physical. It does this with any audio CD.

I have tried using a CD-ROM of some sort to see if the drive itself were running slow, but it worked just fine.

FYI, I use Windows Media Player to play CDs (I know, I know, but it's what works for me. Well, erm, kinda at the moment. LOL).

Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated.

EDIT: It plays at normal speed on VLC Player, but the 'pops' are still present.

It sounds like your audio buffer and your hardware accelerator setting on your sound card have to be adjusted. If you push the buffer up you will gain a bit of latency, but you will lose the skipping/popping sounds, so there is a trade off so find a happy median with no noises and as little latency as possible.

You can access the settings for your sound card by following this path: Control Panel>Sounds and Audio Devices

Hope this helps :thumbsup:
