I would check the manufacturers website for the latest audio drivers. If you have the latest driver installed you may want to un install them in control panel, restart and let windows install the generic audio driver to see if it will work better.

I understand and I know how to do this all, however, I was told to do that in the past too...

Watched your video. It is possible that it is just the Windows Startup Wave file that is damaged? How do other sounds work - music mp3's etc? If it is just the startup file is corrupted, you could run sfc /scannow to replace any missing/corrupt files.

Actually, Its not just the start-up sound, and the start up sound by the way, it does not always skip in that area of the song, sometimes my computer starts without it skipping, then sometimes my computer starts and then Bo boo bzxzxzxzxzxzxzczxzxzxoooo booo < Thats it skipping xD Anyways my Mp3's would once and awhile would skip. But it seems as if the music skips when the HDD Is busy writing or reading something, like one time I had a movie running, and a Norton scan running, The Whole computer froze up for 15 seconds and made the skipping sound and just continued

If it were me, I'd...
a) run CCleaner,
b) defrag,
c) change startup sound to something else,
d) reboot,
e) if new sound skips/jumps uninstall sound drivers & reboot letting Windows automatically update driver
f) if new sound doesn't skip/jump change it back to the old one.
g) for good measure instal/update/run Malwarebytes Antimalware.

It might be that your Pc has a problem multitasking. Run memtest and report back.

I see from your posted system specs that you only have 2Gigs...

Do you have a lot of things running at boot? You could thin out some resource hogs from MSCONFIG.

Feeling Blue
Well it had to happen sometime! I have started getting Blue screens and it does not seem to be specific to any software. I recently upgraded my RAM but other than that, I can't think of any reason for this. I have included my dump file. Thanks for the help.

Feeling discouraged.
So today, I have had a very bad experience with one of my posts helping someone in the Crashes and Debugging forums. I was told that I did not clearly read the person's post and that my response was therefore impersonal and useless. I missed one line in his initial post that was pretty small and...

2 640g blacks on R0, 2 500g blues or 2 640g blues?
Hello there, Should I get 2 640g black HDDs and run them on R0 or get 2 640g blues and run them on R0? Most people would say blacks but I got mixed signals from some people that 2 500/640g blues would be better some how.. So I'm stuck between 3 choices>> 2 640g Blacks on R0 + 2 1T...
