Problem when playing media and other programs

  JAkEshneg 14:26 20 Jun 2009

Hello, this is my first post so I hope its in the right place and what not, The problem I have is that when i play media of any kind it distorts and starts to play slowly as if my PC is not fast enough or have a virus. I have just cleared all viruses on three diferent antivirus programs and even if i have nothing else running, it still does it so im convinced these are not the problems. I have a biostar nVidia GeForce 7050 motherboard and its only started doing it after about a year of having it. Can anyone help me? Thankyou.

If it has only started doing it recently have you tried doing a System Restore to a time before it started happening? This should always be the first place to start.

You arent running more than one AV on your system are you?

Worth a quick check to see if dma transfer has reverted to pio mode.

Thanks, Les28 it turns out my PC had reverted to pio mode, its on ultra dma 6 now, ill see how it goes and let you know. It seems weird that it started when my PC had loads of viruses so thats what i though the problem was, so i reloaded windows xp altogether for a fresh start quite recently, but it still kept doing it, ill see how it goes anyway. Thanks!

Errr, hello again, i know i put this as solved, but over the days it gradually reverted to Ultra DMA 5 and then 4 and now its back on pio mode i had to uninstall it again, any ideas as to why it keeps going back? Thanks.
