Hi,

The sound quality on cd and dvd playback is choppy at best. Originally thought it was my memory (which was 80 - 90% of the hard drive). But after clearing memory space, defraging and scanning with Malwarebytes nothing has changed. My computer is running a lot faster but the sound quality is the same. I even used different players thinking it was an issue with Windows Media Player to no avail.

Please help.

Thanks in advance.

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.
