ok here is the deal. over the past few days ive seen some crazy thigns happening with my video and audio. everything works fine normally, dont get me wrong, but when it comes to playing movies, the video speeds up, slows down, and randomly skips. playing audio is fine until i run another program, then noticable skips and pops happen within the song. i am using zplayer and winamp respectively, and both i uninstalled and reinstalled to no avail. i updated my video drivers, didnt do anything, and when updating my audio, it said i didnt even have an audio card for some crazy reason. its getting to the point i want to go office space on this damn thing and break it all to hell. any help would be greatly appreciated :thumbsup: :flowers:

Have other applications been slowing down?

Does it seem any faster if you are not online?

What OS do you have?

How much RAM do you have?

Is your hard drive almost filled up?

When was the last time you defragged in Safe Mode?

With plenty of RAM and Hard Drive space, with running XP, there are a few things that it could be.

Your file associations could be messed up. When you have two different applications that run the same type of file (such as video or audio), and you switch between them, a conflict may occur. In some cases, both of them may open when you play a CD or watch a movie. Play a song or watch a video for a few seconds, minimize it, and open up the Task Manager (CTRL+ALT+DEL) and click the Processes tab. Please post back the Image name that is taking up the most CPU%.

It is also possible that another (unrelated) application is opening when playing these files. Although I may not be able to help on the details, you may want to post a Hi Jack This log, and see if it will help out.

There are a few more items that it could be, but I have ran out of time, and will post back later tonight.
