so out of random today, when i would play music on my laptop, the song files would skip and click and lag every few seconds and i couldnt figure out what was causing it. i at first thought it was the song files themselves, but it wasnt. then i thought it might be my external hard drive cause thats what i play my media off of, and then i tried playin the music through itunes instead of my normal winamp, and it was still doing it. i even went online and youtube videos and quicktime videos would do the same thing. i checked my sound drivers to make sure everything was updated, which it should be, i just reinstalled vista the other day. ive been using this laptop for over 6 months now, and its never done this. the only thing i can think of is maybe a hardware issue, like the onboard sound card or something, im not real sure. if anyone could help me with this, it'd be greatly appreciated. its such a nuisance, cause all i really use a computer for is media, so when im not getting good playback, it causes a big problem.
