i recently reinstalled win7 on my computer and got all the drivers up to date, however, now for some reason when i play youtube vids, i hear this sound similar to a scratched CD being played. the music gets distorted or stretched for a second or sometimes upto 5 seconds, or there will be random noises in the video.
I also just installed a new Audio manager even though the drivers were up to date, because i thought it would fix the problem of the messed up vids
also for some reason, my internet stops working because somehow the device becomes disabled, it isn't a problem now but i was wondering why that happened.
Win 7 pro
Gigabyte mobo, GA-880GA-UD3H basically an AM3+ mobo, with DDR3 and realtek audio and LAN components
AMD phenom 965 BE @ normal clocks
well the original story is, i bought and setup this computer back in february, and tried installing win7 but, it didn't work until my 5th time, and it finally installed but i found out i had a second instance of partially installed win 7 on my HDD, so last week i decided to backup my data and totally format everything, which worked but i stilll have this jumpy video playback.
and yes this jumpy playback happened before the reinstall but it wasn't this bad, it was very quick and hard to catch.
i got the attache badge when i answered the calls thing to a test by the mods about a year ago, i haven't been here very often since then so i don't know how to work it now
i just read the articles now and occasionally post a question here
hmmm...how about a bios update? I had an older am2(+)? That spikes up CPU usage for some unknown reason it was very noticeable when transferring files via USB port. Even driver updates didn't fix it. It turns out it was a known issue and a BIOS update fixed it.
i have done that too, several actually, i have installed several new versions of every main driver
update: i got sick of all this jumpy playback and long load times so i attempted a system restore to last week when i first installed Win7 and got pissed of about how long it took to restore so i purposefully turned off the computer knowing the risk of total loss of control over the thing and i am attempting a reinstall again now, but i gets stuck after it says windows is loading files, the blue welcome screen comes up for initial installation but the i just see the cursor and blue background with the flowers or something and that's it, nothing to start an installation or anything, not happy abt Win 7 right now.
