Is my computer dying?

Hello,
I am very bad when it comes to computers. I was just wondering if someone can help me. Every time I watch a video or listen to music on my computer the audio skips every like 15 to 30 seconds. I was just wondering what may be the problem? Anything I can do...and please understand I am not a wiz like you guys and girls

  1. Watch the heat of the computer. Make sure the graphics is not getting too warm. It can be monitored with a program called MSI Afterburner. You can find it online!
  2. Hey, thanks for the quick reply! I have a Dell inspiron 1545. I have a pentium (r) dual-core cpu t4300 2.1ghz, 4gb of ram and a 64bit operating system.

    Even when I use itunes to play music the music skips...its very annoying. Not sure what I should do. Any advice is appreciated! Thanks
  3. As for me, i think your problem relays on your sound card or chipset. You will need to update your sound card or chipset. Since your sound driver is IDT 92HD71B, download from http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/SOUND-CARD/IDT/Dell-Inspiron-1545-Notebook-IDT-92HD71B-Audio-Driver-A03.shtml
    for chipset, download from here http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/MOTHERBOARD/Intel/Dell-Inspiron-1545-Notebook-Intel-GM45-Chipset-Driver-A03.shtml
