Re: Audio Troubles

I had the exact same problem with a friend's Toshiba Satellite A105-S4014. XP had failsafed to PIO mode for both IDE channels. I'm not sure what caused this to happen, but after a general clearout I uninstalled both IDE channels then rebooted to force reinstall and everything is now hunky dory.

Re: Audio Troubles

There must be a driver conflict if this is what is happening when you play music from your hard drive, if your playing from a cd make sure it's not an encrypted music file. Go to my computer icon, right click>properties>hardwrae tab>device manager, then go down the list to sound, video and game controllers, click the '+' sign, highlight realtek and then right click and select uninstal. Restart the system and the audio will automatically re install and use the appropriate driver, you should now have normal sound.

Re: Audio Troubles

This must be a problem with the configuration utility. In some cases when using realtek or c-media or related products that come with a utility to help you change the environment, some environments may make you sound to be choppy. This may also be memory or processors speed that may not support that kind of configuration. Try opening the utility usually at the bottom right coner of the screen at the taskbar and try changing the environements.

When i play a movie and use my itunes the sound is choppy do you know what the poblem is because i cant hear anything do i possibly need a sound card ?

If you are viewing/listening on line and it does that but not when you play a DVD or tune from a disk, you have a slow internet connection problem. If it does it when playing a Video/Tune from a disk, download a newer audio driver from your manufacturers web site after downloading the latest Windows update.
Hope that helps.
