I just upgraded my computer, replacing almost everything including my hard
drive and motherboard and have a clean install now of XP Home. When I play
audio files in either Creative Play Center (software with new live sound
card) or Win Media Player 7 (part of XP) it "stutters" every 10 seconds or
so. This happens whether I play files from my hard drive, stream internet
audio or just play audio CDs. It sounds like a local buffer or streaming
problem perhaps. A friend of mine mentioned XP having problems with audio,
but this could be something I can fix in a setting somewhere. I haven't
found any windows update patches for this. Does anyone have this problem or
know what may be causing this? I have installed a good audio system and I
can't really enjoy it.
Many thanks in advance, and Happy Holidays!
