Hi I am using windows xp pro with sp2, have a gigabyte motherboard amd duel core 4800 proccessor, and 2 gigs of ram. This just started happening, when I play a movie or music or radio it plays for about 5 min. then pauses about 3 sec. then starts playing again. I was using the ac97 builton sound, had updated all the drivers, for the motherboard, still have the problem. I then disabled the onboard sound and put a creative xfi in and new speakers. Still have the problem. All drivers snd windows updates are installed. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank YOu

Why did you update all the drivers ? ...

by OldER Mycroft In reply to Sounds

What was the problem you were having that made you update the drivers?

What software are you using for playing these media files (I assume you are streaming the radio).

This started happening before I updated the drivers so thought by updating the drivers it would hel;?

Task Manager

by TheChas In reply to Sounds

Open up task manager and see if you have a process taking up most or all of your CPU time.

If so, the next step is a full mal-ware scan. Make sure to check for viri, root-kits and spy-ware.

How about any new software?

Did this behavior start after installing new software or a Microsoft update?

Software and malware

by johncv1 In reply to Sounds

Sorry it took so long to get back, I ran a system file checker, ran adaware and avg internet security which did not find anything still have the problem. The only other thing I might try is do a repair on windows. I do appreciate the help. Also have the latest codec and software updates.
