    A whole lot of stuff written about XP but not Vista.

    One site I found recommended disabling Vertical Sync (graphics setting).

    Have you either upgraded or rolled back drivers for both video and sound cards? If not, try that.

    Re-visit the usual suspects.

    Check for error reports in the events logs.
    Run available diagnostic programs (such as PC Doctor)
    Is the source for music and video always the same?
    Update or rollback drivers.
