Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Whenever anything is downloading to my computer my sound gets garbled. This especially happens when I am trying to view streaming video. The sound gets garbled and out of sync with the video which also gets jumpy. But it also happens when I am downloading my email and web pages.

Answers :

You are basically driving your PC pedal to the metal, as video and audio are the two most bandwidth-intensive things to do with a PC. Couple that with the Internet connection, and the prerequisite virus scans, and the poor machine is about to throw a rod.

Having said that, your machine should be up to the task, it sounds as if your data stream is inconsistent, and you have some other processes interrupting your "flow".

Make sure you defrag your HDD, jumping around to find places to sore data can cause this also.

Make sure all of your system's drivers are up to date, especially video, audio, and NIC drivers, and consider the following,

You are on the 'net, so your anti virus app, if set to "on Access control", is checking everything coming into and going out of your box, creating delays and timing hiccups.

Try this, disconnect from the net, turn antivirus off, and watch a DVD. if you have no problems, then it is most likely your real-time data flow from the net crashing into your antivirus scanning everything. Second most likely is data "throttling" by your ISP, those schnooks sell more broadband than they can deliver, and so they use "packet-shaping" to slow everyone down a bit.

Perhaps you can change your antivirus to "on demand scanning" , and scan manually, instead of automatically, while watching streaming, then go back to "on access" when you are finished..

Perhaps better to download the video beforehand, scan it, then watch while disconnected from the het, and "on Access control" turned off.
