    For the record I now how a legit copy of Windows XP which I've just done a fresh install and updated up to SP3.

    I will be playing team fortress 2 and suddenly get several second stutters like the HD is chugging or something. It specifically happens when there is some action on the screen.

    It also happens when I am watching steaming video. The video will stop for a couple of seconds while the audio continues and when the vid starts again it jumps to meet the audio.

    Also when I am scrolling down with the mouse it will get jammed for a second or two then jump down.

    Another thing I just noticed while writing this is when I type that too will jam for several seconds then jump.

    What's going on here?

    Like I say fresh install and it didn't happen before on my previous install. My drivers are all updated (all the common ones).
