I had an account on here before, but i've been through air force training and i forgot my log in.
First, my system specs. Just for reference.
Windows XP Professional SP2
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Black Edition 5000+ @ 2.61GHz
Mainboard: ASUS M2N-SLI
Video: GeForce 8600GT
Sound: PCI-e Soundblaster X-Fi Xtreme
Drives: 3 total
(1) Western Digital 500GB
(2) Seagate 300GB
My problem is this. Any time I play music or games, from time to time the music will skip a split second. Literally, it sounds like it snags for a second, then backs up and plays over what it snagged at in a split second.
Funny thing is, it does it with iTunes, Winamp, and WMP. I have tried using onboard and my soundcard for audio. I did a complete XP reinstall to try and fix it. I have transferred the music to and from all 3 drives and a 1TB portable with the same results.
Personally, I think it may be something to do with the processor and the board. However, I will admit that i am not up to date with drivers anymore, considering i used outdated drivers in the XP reinstall process. Even though before I did the reinstall, it was running more current, almost lastest drivers, and music was still skipping.
I'm lost here, ladies ans gents, and any input, suggestions, are much appreciated.
