    Hello,
    I am really frustrated :(. In every music and sound on my computer (be it a youtube or game or song), every cca. 10 seconds the sound breaks off. Like some interference, but I really have no idea what is causing it. I really tried everything. Change the operating system, change the sound card, sound drivers, video drivers, chipset drivers, I deactivated almost all running tasks, and still it is here :(. It's interesting thing, because it happens mostly when I do type, or navigate trough folders... etc. etc. For example, I downloaded Nintendo 64 emulator and the game Banjo Kazooie. Sound is choppy only when I jump with character or do something "complex". When I leave it just standing, sound is o.k. What is it? Is there any solution to this? What has failed? Please answer, thanks very much!

    Hello,
    To allow us to help us better, could you tell us more about your computer, such as your version of Windows (Service Packs installed?), are you using a 32 bit or 64 bit version of Windows, is this a branded computer like Dell or HP, if it is, what's its make and model. Also, are you using any Anti-Virus software? If so, which one?

    Yes... Windows XP SP3, 32 bit version, and I'm using Kaspersky anti virus. If you need any more information just ask.

    Hi,
    If all drivers are ok and I don't think that Kaspersky is the problem. Sometimes firewalls does something to the sound.
    One thing I can think is that there is a loose connection somewhere. Specially if you're using a laptop. That would explain why it happens when you hit the keys.
