Question about Intel Pentium 4 505, 2.66 GHz (JM80547PE0671M) OEM / Unboxed Processor
When I play music or any kind of sound on my desktop, It gets choppy, slow or laggy. Many have told me that this is a memory related problem and also because of a virus. I have the Avast 4.8 Anti Virus Protection software, use the Reimage PC booster, and use a bundle of software called TuneUp Utilities 2009, but still the sound stays the same. Can any1 recommend a solution to all this except for reformatting? And if the software I use is recommended at all?
There is another FREE program you can try.. try an internet search for AD-AWARE It finds those pesky little memory thieves and oftentimes can eliminate them. I am unfamiliar with your antivirus program.. I would use McAfee or Norton. As for the lagging it sounds like a buffering problem. there is a program I use called System Mechanic that does a pretty decent job of fixing internet and even registry problems. The System mechanic by IOLO (www.iolo.com i think) is a little spendy unless you get in on an offering I got 1 yr service for only 20.00 (vs 40-80 to buy the prog from the store) The musid that is choppy is it while online with a program such as mIRC? if so try #mirc_rainbow maybe the OPS there can help you, just be polite to them and thank them and you will be a welcome visitor anytime you drop by.. Another nice IRC site is #popinn or even #mirc_help (yes the # is neccesary)

Hi. I had the same problem once with my desktop. It seems that windows load slowly and when i play music, the choppy performance of my CPU becomes obvious. What I did was, I reinstalled the chipset driver for my processor and it appears that it requires Windows XP SP2. So i also reinstalled WinXP SP2 and it solved the problem (without reformatting, just upgrading).
Now i had the very same problem with my Lenovo 3000 G430. I did the above solution but it didn't solve the problem. I am guessing that the chipset driver from Lenovo is problematic for Windows XP because the system is more supported in Windows Vista. Just a guess.
