Hi, I have a new-ish laptop (philips x54) but very recently the sound when loading up(that windows theme) or when i play an mp3 or mpeg video the sound is scratchy/kinda jumps and skips! Sometimes it is fine when i am listening to a song on say myspace but when i minimize that page and go to load up another page the sound becomes distorting and skips.I'm really not sure what has happened.
I first noted when i downloaded dvd decrypter to see if i could rip one of my dvds to the hard drive. However when i tried to play it back i got the said problems with sound skips+jumps
Right click my computer, choose properties, then under hardware, look at device manager. Are there any problems listed?
With Belarc, look at the hardware listed. What is said under audio? It should tell you the manufacturer. If it does, post the details here.
As for system restore, if you are on XP, it is to be found under program files, accessories, system tools. When you run it, you should get a list of dates which can be restored. Do you remember when you installed DVD decrypter? If so, choose a date before that day.
