  • Music Skipping, WHY!!!???

    Someone please help, ok the only way i could explain this is that my mp3's are skipping, i've changed the harddrive, ram, and even checked the wires... but music is still skipping, not all the time but like once every 2 mins. could this be the power supply? any ideas or comments are welcome as i'm about to go crazy. Oh yeah the reason i'm asking if the powersupply would have anything to do with it is because while the pc was inside hooked up to a regular powersupply it was working fine.
    Thank you

        Are you sure it's skipping? Maybe you have a bad connection at the line out of pc, or in at the amp?

          Sometimes my laptop does that when it's been running for too long (IBM T20 w/ Win 98 SE). The computer's resources get eaten up and the soundcard chokes because it's not getting enough information. Do you have a slow CPU? A small amount of RAM? Are you running a lot of applications at once?

              Well i have a 1.8 ghz, and 256 ram, and that was working just fine for a while, the only thning i have running is my OS (XP of course) and frodo player. And that exactly what i thought it seemed to me that it was like a buffer underrun or something

                That sounds like the problem, 256 is really a little shy of cutting it with xp running unless you've optimized everything.

                  Hmmm, did you make any changes to the computer before you first noticed the problem? Might your computer have gotten spyware on it?
                  My only other thought is to try running task manager while driving and watch the CPU and memory usage, then when it skips pull your car over and take a look at the profile to see if any specific program is using all your resources.

                        ok guys, problem somewhat fixed, the problem was the Netgear WG311 pci card, i disabled it and my media stop skipping. So now looking for new drivers, hopefully they have one. Thanks again guys.

                          Try a different media player and see if it does the same thing. I use winamp on 200mb ram, XP, and a 2.0ghz processor. Pretty close to the same setup.

                            Oh!! Yes, I've had this problem before! Your wi-fi card keeps looking for a network connection, which was even causing my whole computer to lock up. Different drivers may not help, I ended up having to get a different card. USB adapter I changed to.
