Music really choppy for no reason?

Hi I'm running windows 7 ultimate (x64) and well my music is really choppy at random times...and I know its not a ram issue as I have 2gb and 600mb or more is always free and my CPU is a intel celeron D 3.46 GHz with the usage at about 50% while playing music...and my music is fine because I can stream it from my Xbox fine

Hi crazymonkey05,

Please share the 'audio playback application' in use when the music gets choppy; does that happen with 'Windows Media Player/Winamp/Youtube/etc'

In the mean while, you may try the following steps:
1. Update/Re-install the 'Audio drivers'
- Click 'Start icon' > Type 'devmgmt.msc' (without quotations) in 'Search Programs and Files' text-box > Tap 'Enter' to open 'Device Manager' > Expand 'Sound, video and game controller' > Right click 'Audio device driver' and 'uninstall' > Restart the computer and install 'Audio drivers' (You may also update Windows; it may pick up the updated drivers automatically)

2. If the issue persists, try to run 'Audio Troubleshooter' to see if that works: Open the Playing Audio troubleshooter

3. If you still experience issues, you may want to refer to the following 'web article': Tips for fixing common sound problems

Hope this helps. Do reply if you have any further questions; would be glad to assist.

Hi crazymonkey05,

If the audio works fine with all other media players, it points towards the 'Windows Media Player'. Please check the following troubleshooting guide and see if that helps: Windows Media Player Troubleshooting Guide

Do reply with the findings; would be glad to assist.
