my computer's video is freezing and starting every few seconds, the audio buzzes or stops when the video freezes.

i have already ran three virus scans with three different products: malwarebytes' anti malware, spybot anti virus, and clamwin anti virus". i have done a system restore to before the problem started.
i have not yet went into my computer and messed with wires and other electronics.

system specs are:
processor: Intel Pentium D CPU 3.73GHz duel core
video card: MSI N460GTX twin frozer 2
driver: i have the driver from the video card disk.
ram: 3 gig
operating system: XP Professorial SP 3
if anything else is required i will see if i can find it.

Does a game cd have to be in the tray for this to occur.
You say that it happens with music as well. Is the music on audio cd's?
WHat Im wondering is if you might have a dirty laser lens.
In the beginning there was the command line.

Did it ever work correctly?

What player are you using?
Are you using the same player for dvd's and audio cd's?

I wonder if there might be something running in the background thats causing it to stutter.
Try it in safe mode (tap F8 on system startup and select safe mode from the menu).
If it works fine then it leads me to think that there is a background app causing the issue.
In the beginning there was the command line.

come to think of it, it worked until i clicked a foreign icon in one of the downloads.
i am using the Zune player for music and video.
i cannot do an accurate test in safe mode because it will not allow Zune player or a game to run.
i have tried playing music with the bare minimum amount of programs going.

Hmmm, have you checked for viruses and spyware yet?
Download, install, update & run MalwareBytes Antimalware
Get the free one & do the complete scan.
It could take a while so go kill some time while it is running.

What antivirus software do you have?
In the beginning there was the command line.

new errors:
1:computer only starts every other time (probable loose connection).

2:(ERROR! The CPU core to BUS ratio or VID configuration has failed!
please enter BOIS setup and re-config it.)

i'm starting to think this computer has been animated by some dark force just to torment me.
