    Often the sound on my computer skips for half a second (kind of replays the same sound it was on for several times in that instant) then continues normally. I don't really have any clue why.

    Also when ever the sound skips on several games (World Of Warcraft and Counter Strike: Source are the ones that I can think of) their frames per second speed up or slow down drastically.

    By the way it is a laptop and I get the skipping using the onboard speakers or headphones plugged in.

    Hi.
    I'm having the same problem, after installing a new sound card.
    If you haven't found it already, you might want to take a look at this:

    It's the result from a search on "sound card skipping" in the hardware forum.
    hopefully it will solve the problem for both us. :)

    I have that issue with this system, and I found out that SpeedFan reading the motherboard sensors was the cause for me. The Asus motherboard monitor did the same thing. I eliminated any motherboard monitors, and the problem is gone.
