Okay, I was having an issue with my sound stuttering or slowing down. Even the windows tones sounded like they were being stretched out. I looked around for details on the issue -- not a lot of Vista results, but it seemed like I would need to reinstall my up-to-date drivers. <_<

I came across this post, I think talking about having no sound at all? And tried the restart service fix, completely fixed. :) I still don't know what went wrong and honestly, it seems like Vista was having a nervous break down. Anyone else having this issue?

Okay, problem's back. :( Is this a hardware issue now?

I have no idea what is going on, but whenever sounds play on my computer they stutter and hang. I've tried various quick fixes, like refreshing the service and checking the drivers. I did some research but it didn't enlighten me any further for an Acer laptop with a Realtek audio. Could I get some help narrowing the issue down?

Update (for anyone else with a similar issue):

I downloaded and installed the most recent Realtek Audio driver, fought with getting it to replace the old driver (didn't really work out), restarted system, have a new icon in my tray that's the new sound manager, but still have the same problems sometimes with web video graphics jumping around and then all of the sound on my laptop being choppy. :( Then I put the computer to sleep for a few hours instead of completely shutting it down to work on it later, but when it came back up, bam! everything works perfectly. :blink: So I don't know if the real problem was fixed or not but if uninstall something that used a sound driver and it acts choppy (what happened last time probably, I uninstalled quite a few things), don't restart just put to sleep for a bit and it get itself in order again? That's really weird, Vista. You normally hate sleep mode. <_<
