Check you have not got a lot of programs auto-starting and running in the background.
Press control/Alt and delete keys together and pick task manager.
Then have a look at the services running sorted by % CPU time, then you should find your culprit.
If all media players are closed, Open the Control Panel> Sounds> open, click on configure, test. Any Problem? Now when you say "choppy sound" The audio is on what, using what? With limited info it's difficult to give a informed solution. FOR INSTANCE, I was watching a movie/music, online video, youtube....etc. with (your software) and the sound was choppy. Or, I was on IE and watching a Video, music, etc. Lets say you open Itunes and play a song, sound is choppy?
You can try using another media player.If that does'nt work ,your DVD drive may be bad or need cleaning.Sometimes a bad ram chip can cause the video to mess up.Try playing a movie directly from your HDD downloaded from a website and see if its choppy if its not then its your DVD drive.If it is still choppy it could be the media player your using or it does'nt have enough ram memory/virtual memory.If you have XP change your virtual memory settings and the refresh rate in task manager.(Bring up task manager,go to view tab then update speed to HIGH).
Hi, sorry for the difficulty in using the system. I will advise you reload the operating system again. Make sure it's from the real manufacturer, I mean don't go for pirated. If it doesn't work, then back up your files and folders and format the system. I wish you the best.
This could be a couple of Things.
First if it,s DVD Player related. it could be that The DVD Player, needs the laser Head Cleaning. Any dust-grease or similar on the Laser head, will cause Distortion. The second option is the DVD Player itself. Some DVDs are removable Drives. with An eject Rom button underneath the Laptop. This will enable you to remove. Check the drives connection Pins At the rear of the Drive. ** Clean with a Bud/Swab moistened in lighter fluid/Meths** replace the Drive.
The other possible problem would be with your Laptops Sound Card/ Board if Fitted.
Finally The problem could be related to a motherboard Fault i.e Bad earth or other internal Component Fault.
Go simplist first ( clean the DVDs Laser Head.
Then Remove the actual DVD Drive if Possible. ** Check Connections At rear** Ensure that the drive has not been dislodged from its connector to laptop mainboard.
Try to re install the dvd programs and try also to clean the dvd head maybe there is a dust cover the lens of the dvd. Use dvd cleaner but if still not working try to clean it manually .If you can open the cover of the dvd clean the head lens by smooth cotton cloth or cotton bud don't use any liquid to avoid more damage of the lens. But if still not working i suggest that you need to buy a new dvd.
