My sound is skipping when playing any type of audio(cd, mp3, video), approx. once a minute for about 2 or 3 seconds each time. Maybe I need to update my sound card driver, but not sure how to do that. I have a DELL xps computer with a Sigma Tel Audio sound card. I ran dxdiag in the start/run menu, the driver is sthda.sys, Version:5.10.4548.0000, Date 6/6/2005. Any help would be greatly appreciated as this is obviously very irritating when trying to listen to music or watch video.

Did you try uninstalling/reinstalling the driver?
