Recently my sound is choppy whenever I play mp3's or watch videos. The choppiness isn't always there. It sometimes happens for like 5 min or 1 hr then goes away for a while. I tried testing it out to see if it was my speakers crapping out so I used headphones and the sound was still choppy. It all started on saturday when I deleted 5 gigs or so of video files. I tried defragging to see if it would help (A long shot I kno...but I figured I might as well since I havn't defragged in a year) but it didn't. The only thing I can think of that I did recently that affected anything related to sound was that I installed the new CCCP (the codec pack) on my comp. But that was a week before I experianced the sound problems...Any Ideas?
