Sounds skipping and missing in some areas on media player
I have windows Xp, I bought the computer in 2003, I have a Sound blaster sound card by creative installed. Most of the time, when I try to play media files, I hear the computer skipping and missing like a scratched CD, What is the problem and how to fix it.
Oh, I almost forgot, if it helps or means anythin, my burner is broken and won'r open or play cds and also it won't brn cds, I have to pry it open with a knife if I ever want to open it. The skipping thing is really what bugs me though

hi, you need to go into your device manager and just disable the AC 97 sound card, them go to the control panel and get into sound options, and selectthe sound blaster as your default sound card o primary device .
Their is a chance that either the sound device or driver is missing. Reload the sound software. If you don't have it look at the mane and model of you computer or sound card make andf model(mother board it on board sound) and download the drivers nd sofrtware from their website.
Thanks for asking for solution,I would require some additional info.
1. Does windows media player give you an error while playing the file ?
2. Is the problem only in windows media player ? eg, are you getting windows startup sound.
In the meantime try system restore , take the computer back to the date when it was working fine.
ps: do let me know the make of the sound card and which windows operating system you are using
Install winamp then try to play your CD. and scan your computer with latest antivirus software. this is seems low memory in ur system. some other application consumes more memory so may be your cd skipping.
Is this problem with windows media player only or with rest players also.
You try to repair your media player using your XP installation CD and then install a good codec pack such as XP codec pack or K-Lite codec pack.These are available for free .
Hope this works for you.
The reason for the message will be the fact that windows doesnt recognise that there is a sound device available because the driver for your sound card or onboard sound is not built into XP and therefore you will have to find out what make of audio you have and install the relevant driver.
