Ok so every now and then (every couple of minutes or so) when I'm moving the mouse around on the desktop or surfing the net there is a very brief lag that causes it and any sound to skip quickly. I have recently rebuilt my system with a new motherboard and processor so this is the only thing I can think might be causing it although I have updated and installed all the drivers for both. I went through all the steps in the malware/virus forum with one of the helpful techs there and we dtermined it must be a hardware problem. I have tried running the system with both the onboard and my ati graphics card, cleaned my power supply fan and tried another one (albeit they are both old), watched the system processes to see if anything changes when the skip occurs, as well as try every little fix i could see suggested on other postings about similar issues but nothing seems to fix it. This problem is driving me absolutely mental as I have also reformatted Windows XP and it starts happening right away. Thanks for any advice guys!!!

Get some more RAM or close down some applications.

Like I mentioned it happens even after I reformat Windows so its not the applications running. I'm using the same 1024mb stick of ram i have always used and have never had a problem before but with this setup it is only coming up as 960mb? Its DDR400 which I know is supported by this motherboard.
