Hello all, I'm pretty knowledgeable when it comes to common things on the PC but this problem has me stumped. Lately when I try to download any media file like a video, picture or music file, the file becomes garbled in some way. For instance a picture will be spliced in half in two different colors, top and bottom. A video file will play for about 2-3 minutes then stop even though it was completely downloaded and for the music, it will just sound like white noise altogether. This is causing the files on my HDD, external hard drive, and flash drive to corrupt and I'm not sure what the problem is. I have ran CHKDSK and system scans but nothing pops up everytime I do it. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
