This laptop is approaching its 2 year mark. it is running Windows XP Home Service Pack 2. I discovered not long ago, but whilst playing music, watching movies, and anything sound related on here, the music is well weird. it isn't distorted as such, it just jumps/delays in sound every other second. i cannot really explain, but it doesn't give a constant feedback of sound. external speakers does not solve the problem either. it gets worse, if the CPU is busy, ie opening up an application, the sound becomes more interupted. Is it a sound card problem? I really don't know.

it sounds like you are asking too much of the machine as you rightly say gets worse when processor busy, check what else you have running in the background.how much memory do you have? maybe upgrade?

has 1gb ram and 120gb hard disk with plenty of space left. its just annoying when watching a film on it when there is absence of a tv eg on the train.
