    Installed xp pro, sp3 after reformatting and removing vista, all went fine. But, now the sound is stuttering, slow and a little crackely. Weird, it actually sounds okay as long as i am not doing anything, but as soon as i start browsing the web or opening other programs, (especially run something like defrag) i get a bad stutter and the sound slows real bad. Tried EVERYTHING, i think. However,,this problem is on a toshiba L305. Everything else works great. I have tried different internet connections--doesn't matter, and it does it with ALL sounds--windows start-up, live streaming radio, music cd's, on or off line. And yes, DMA (direct memory access) is set right. I strongly believe my sound card and drivers are right, this seems like some sort of memory conflicting problem. But like I said,,,all else is fine. Weird!! :mad:
