Garbled music often when playing off my Toshiba laptop

  1. Toshiba lap top satellite M115-S3144
    Windows XP Media Center Edition
    Intel Centrino 5500
    2 GB of Ram

    Periodically playing music is skipping, crackles, garbled, etc. After "out of box" restore will work OK for awhile.....then starts garbling up again.............

    Any thoughts?

    Follow these four steps:

    Do a clean boot. Clear temp and prefetch.
    Create a restore point and then update the sound card drivers.
    Also try to install KLite codecs from
    Do Windows Updates.
