    Got my 5672WLMi last week and out of the box the sound worked fine on boot. But the minute I started playing a game or a media file it starts breaking up and stays that way. I work in IT so did the following things:

    Updated to the latest Realtek HD Audio drivers
    Uninstalled and re-installed the sound device
    Updated to latest Bios
    Restored to factory settings
    Clean format and re-install of XP Pro SP2

    None of these worked. Could it be a hardware problem?

    I'm guessing that you mean that the sound is "Stuttering"???

    If so, the moat probable cause is that the "LOAD" that the game puts on the Laptop is too much for it to process the sound properly. In normal laptops the sound and video are onboard units (size issues). So, when doing heavy processing, the onboard units are impacted negatively.

    Most lappies are not for gaming. :(
