Question about Toshiba Satellite M45-S265 Notebook
I just recently bought a new external (USB) sound card (Turtle Beach) for my Toshiba laptop. I installed the software and driver just fine, but whenever I play a mp3/movie file my sound skips and has a scratching sound.
This began happening with my old sound card (also a Turtle Beach). I thought it may have been worn out after 6 months, so I purchased this new one. It's doing the same thing the old sound card was doing. I have installed the sound card driver on all 3 of my USB ports--the same sound skipping is occurring.
I was told that it could be a driver problem (if so, how could I solve this?) or it could be that I don't have enough hard drive space (I don't have a lot--I've tried everything to free up space: disk defrag, cleaning out disk space, cleaning out registry, unsintalling programs that aren't used, deleting documents, unwanted pictures, and music files). I did manage to free up some space, but I'm not up to 15% (required for disk defrag).
I'm thinking about using my recovery disk to just start over, but I want to keep some of my programs, my music files, and movie files (I don't have blank discs).
I figured my USB ports were giving me trouble because they were dusty. I've ordered a USB vaccuum and an air compressed can. I'm no computer expert, so if you can help me out that'd be great!
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
