Hey everyone,
My computer has been acting weird whenever I play any kind of music or watch videos with audio. It's like the soundtrack skips and pops. I don't think it's the speakers because it seems like this happens when the computer is multitasking and not if I'm just doing one thing. Could this be some kind of hardware problem? I was reading a different forum and it said that this might be caused by the hard drive being on the wrong setting, but I'm not sure if that applies here. If anyone has any suggestion, they'd be very much appreciated. Thanks!!
Best Regards,
Jeff

How much RAM do you have?

Hey Smurfgod,
Yeah it does it while downloading and watching Youtube too. But the place that I most notice it as odd is when I'm listening to mp3s Windows Media and you can here it skipping and slowing down. Then it will play normally and then start skipping again. It's really odd and I've never heard a computer do it before. It also happens when I'm playing games.

I have 512mb of RAM.
Best Regards,
Jeff
