  1. ok, i've had about enuf of this comp of mine! i have tried everything to fix my problem but i just can't seem to do it.

    here is my problem:
    when i play my games or listen to my music, i get a freezing or stuttering situation

    i cant fix it. i have tried to re install the game, i updated my drivers for my audio/video card, but no matter what i try- nothing seems to work. i have a decent comp
    • p3 processor, 600 mhz,
    • 40 gigs,
    • 320 ram,
    • allegro audio/sound card

    so i should not have this problem.
    if any 1 can give me some tips or solutions; plz do, because i have had enuf right now and i am going to snap and take out my comp with one big match!
    i left a thread b 4 but i think it was not specific to my problem; so i didn't get the answers i needed. i know there are lots of comp geniuses out there, so if u could give me step by step info i would be really happy.

    What type of video card do you have? That may be the root of your issue..

    Once you respond back I'll have a better idea of what may help your situation

    As regards the audio in games at least anyway click on start, run, type in dxdiag & hit Ok.
    In the Sound tab, lowering the Audio acceleration level a notch.

    thanks for the tip- but its my video that is freezing, only for a split second- but it takes the fun out of the games with that kind of lag. i used to have a good running comp, now it just seems to get worse by the month.
