I am running XP on older dell tower. recenlty I have had the buump.me redirect virus but has now been removed. The sound though is now scratchy, choppy and lags at times. I have had this before but i think just did a rollback to previous date and it dissappeared. I could not find a solution then and now it has returned. Is it a virus issue, corrupted driver, buffer issue? I have tried all the standard attemps to resolve but nothing to date. At times it is worst than usual but i get i through headphones and pc speakers. I have 2 profiles on pc and it is on both even though I rarely use the other. Any ideas?

Have you tried re installing or updating your sound drivers,might have been damaged with virus.

Also maybe you have all the codecs you need?

 

Check - Control Panel -> Sounds and Audio Devices and make sure your proper default settings hav,nt changed ie,speakers and output.

The Dell website or the CD which came with your system...should be the source of any drivers for your Dell system.

 

Uninstall the current drivers, via Device Manager...then install the replacements.

 

I don't understand your reference to being infected...are you saying that your system is infected currently?

I have a couple of codec packs from last time this happened. I have media player codec pack and k-lite code3 pack i think.

Ho do you decide which codec pack of the hundreds there to install?

Not sure what you are referring to...I have K-Lite and I just install the mega package, in entirety.

Louis:

That looks like a good solution to a lot of problems. Think I'll try it. Thanks.
