My audio is very choppy-sounding and nothing I'm doing seems to improve it. Running Windows XP-sp3 . Updated and scanned with Microsoft Security Essentials (not sure if this does anything anyway), Malwarebytes and SuperspyAntiSpyware- all clean. Ran Windows disk clean-up and Auslogics defrag. Any suggestions would be apprecated!

Go to RUN and type in dxdiag and follow the troubleshooter for sound.

I ran it and it found no problems. I should add that the distortion occurs when streaming music or audio over video clips. Sound from a CD or DVD is fine. Thanks.

Can you give your specs? There is a utility here on this site that auto reads and puts on your profile but it's hidden away and I can't find the link.

I've been reading other related threads and think that I need to upgrade my RAM. I have 1G and room for 2G. Whether or not it solves my audio problem, I'm sure it will help overall performance. I'll close this issue for now and re-visit later if necessary. Thanks to all who offered assistance!
