    Music skipping

    I've had my carpc in the car for quite a bit. Until maybe 2 months ago, the mp3's started to skip once in a while and sometimes so much I'd have to reboot the system. So I swapped out my hdd for a 2.5 notebook drive. Ghosted the drive and still the same thing. Could it be the mp3 files gone bad or.......?

    I remember reading on the forum that some people with USB soundcards had problems with their music skipping...when they changed it out to a PCI soundcard, the problem went away. I think it had to do with the software consuming too much CPU power. Does this pertain to your situation?

    I believe the culprit turned out to be the PCMCIA WiFi card.

    I was using the onboard sound card. I have no idea how come for the past two months my PCMCIA wifi card would take up so much cpu usage which would cause my mp3's to skip. How come now? I dunno. But, I'm happy nevertheless. At first, I removed the card but it also works fine when I disable it from the menu....Thanks for the help tj!2k4!
