    Up until a few days ago, I had no previous audio problems, using the computer for over a year. The audio is choppy now, and I'm unsure of the cause. My VIA HD audio deck seems to act funny, especially when it comes to the front panel inputs, but rear inputs still get choppy sound.

    After a bit of googling I looked at the cable to the mobo and it says AC 97 on it, so I swapped an option in the BIOS to AC 97, but thinking about how it worked before that was switched, I will probably change it back to HD audio since that wasn't the problem.

    DxDiag system info is attached, let me know if there's anything else I can provide.

    Edit: restarted a few times, I noticed the audio is fine right after startup. After running for a few minutes, the quality drops.
