    I am running ME on two of my computers which are both Pentium II 300mhz machines and Media Play on both sound like a bad cell phone. It is distorted and it skips and sounds like dropped packets. Any ideas what the problem might be? I have version Thanks

    Does this distortion and skipping occur on all types of media files played, both online and off, hard drive source and cd-rom?

    What is running in the background (do a ctrl-alt-del)? Try end-tasking everything except Explorer, systray and your media player to eliminate the possibility of conflicts with other running applications.
