Hi, I just reformatted my pc and reloaded a slightly different version of XP on it. Now my audio becomes choppy about every minute or two just for a few seconds, nothing else happens (video will continue to play fine, computer doesn't slow down). I don't notice a memory or cpu spike during the choppiness so I'm not sure what could be causing this. I didn't have this problem before I reformatted, I'm using the exact same audio driver that I had before.
Thanks for giving me best answer. Have you tried reinstalling your audio driver or updating it using DeviceManager ? Hope you get a permanent fix. From Start/ run type DXDIAG. click the audio tab, run the check and see if it shows any problems
