Please could someone help, i built a pc last year and everything worked fine till last month when everytime i try playin any audio or video files the sound stutters every 8 to 10 seconds, I have tried scanning for virus', run a registry cleaning program, checked for updates. is it time to reload windows?? thanks

If it's not a hardware problem, then reloading Windows will probably fix it, but I would try uninstalling from device manager first and then reboot to load the drivers or update the drivers.

Sometimes hard drives settings change - if your drive is PATA type see if the drive is using PIO or DMA.
