Lately, for some reason, videos have become "unlistenable" as they "skip". I replaced the speakers. Any suggestions as to what may be going on and how to fix it?

I have XP and plenty of memory. Have Spybot and Avsast Free!

Thanks

I would try uninstalling, then reinstalling the audio drivers (using Device Manager).

On older systems...Onboard audio chips/cards may have been CPU-intensive and the skipping phenomenon was related to such.

In any case, I would try uninstalling/reinstalling the audio drivers.

I have no idea how to do that! Do I need a disk? It's not the original MB. Is that a factor?

First open your device Manager and uninstall your audio driver and reboot.
Type devmgmt.msc in your run box this will open device manager find your audio device right click it then uninstall. Reboot your machine.



Try this program to get an update for your audio driver.
DriverMax - free driver download program for Windows XP & Vista
You need to register the program in the link above and you get two free drivers in a 24 hour period.

Also take a look at the links below.
Tips for fixing common sound problems

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/w...und-in-windows

Please post the log created by the program in the link below.
Unknown Device Identifier - Freeware Download



Hit start button at lower left hand corner of the screen.Then in the run box type services.msc. Look for windows audio/anything to do with audio and make sure the startup type is set to automatic. To do this,right click selected service select properties then change the startup type to automatic then left click apply.You will need to reboot your machine for the changes to take effect.

Current motherboard: BIOSTAR P4M90-M4 (Socket 775): 66 °
Current CPU: Intel Celeron 335
Audio: Realtek ALC861

Looking at your Speccy, I don't see anything that would pinpoint a problem.

Do all videos skip...those online and those stored on the system or disks?

Your audio driver can be found at http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=14&PFid=24&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false

Windows 2000, Windows XP/2003(32/64 bits) Driver only (Executable file , click US1 button.

First...download the driver listed above, save it to your system/desktop.

Then...type devmgmt.msc and hit Enter.

Scroll down to Sound, Video & Game controllers. Double-click.

Locate Realtek High Definition Audio...double-click it. Click Driver tab, then click Uninstall button on that tab.

Reboot.

Reinstall the audio drivers you previously downloaded.

Test for problem.

Louis

Louis, on some sites, I have no problem with audio, however, on for example, ADA BIBLE CHURCH, their sermons "stutter". The other problem is on YouTuve music videos.

I've encountered stuttering before on my own systems that I have now upgraded (because component prices keep falling, not because of dissatisfaction with any system I've had).

I was using the onboard sound.

At that time, the solution was simple, inexpensive, and easy...just install an inexpensive actual soundcard and cease using the onboard. I bought a Turtle Beach card, installed it...never worried about it again.

For starters, I see that you are using Zone Alarm please remove that and use Windows Firewall or your router. If you use ZA for Antivirus consider a free light weight alternative such as Avast or MSE. Also your video card and processor are very lacking for todays video streaming needs. I would recommend if possible purchasing a newer computer. Your computer in my opinion has reached its end of life.

i think thats a bit extream for a computer with a[Intel® Celeron® D Processor 330
(256K Cache, 2.66 GHz, 533 MHz FSB)] 2.6ghz cpu and 3 gig ram


i would make sure that the correct high def sound drivers are installed and that computer has a fast reliable connection to the internet

My answers are my opinion only,usually
