Question about PC Laptops
Cannot listen to music or videos as sound is scratchy and distorted.
There are a few possible reasons for this.
1. Your drivers are bad, look for new updated drivers from vendor and from windows update.
2. Your system is under heavy load and has trouble playing sounds, you can try to close not needed programs from the taskamanager.
Also, download process explorer http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx'
after extracting the program from the zipfile pay close atention to what is useing the CPU take note if INTERRUPTS / HARDWARE INTERRUPTS or DPC's / Deferrend Procure Calls are happening alot. This can be a sign of hardware problem or complex windows problem. In this case I would recommend reinstalling windows. If the problems continue it is most likely a hardware issue.
If INTERRUPTS and DPCs are normal between 0 and 50, for short perioids, can be higher, but if constant high values then this is a problem.
If those two are not a problem go thrue all applications and find out witch is eating all the cpu, when found try shuting the program down by pressing delete after selected on process manager.
If these dont solve the problem I'l type more later.
