Answers :

Hello,

This could be many things- so-

I am assuming it is not just one cd.

If you are running more than one thing at a time it could be your computer memory. Windows media player skips when you have less memory available to use.

Some things that can determine speed.
1. how old your computer is
2. processor speed
3. actual memory
4. size of hard drive
and many other problems can cause theses issues

Now, what can you do to help solve them without spending money?

a few things.

These are things to try, some will work better than others. It depends

on what you want from your PC.

1. go to safemode-
clean disk- uninstall every program you don't use or haven't used in

the last six months - and don't plan to use in the future.

DELETE PROGRAMS- BUT NOT FILES THAT YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY DO. THAT

COULD BE VERY BAD.

Using the clean disk in accessories is fine

Then Defragment your disk

Do this in safe mode

this will take hours


Reboot after complete

Next go to My computer- right click and go to properties.

Click on advanced

Click on adjust for best performance

And one more thing you can try-

When you are doing one thing that is important- I.E. not good for listening to music and surfing net- but good for watching movie
Actual Booster 3.1
It is a simple program that is recommend. It is freeware. and other and

an occasional mouse stick it works well. Also, you can enable and

disable it.

I have a Foxconn LS-36 Revision A01 Motherboard. The Model number is: CN-OGC375-13740-5AG-00CU. (The first O might be a 0).
