Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook ?

My sound stutters on my Dell Inspion 6400 whenever I put a DVD in

\015 My sound stutters whenever I put a DVD into the computer. My sound works on my music programs without issue.\015

Answers :

You are very welcome. I am glad I could help. Apparently what happens is that the drive takes errors and XP downgrades the transfer mode. Once that happens you will have flaky problems, another problem you will see when this has occured is when you try to burn a CD or DVD. It might burn for a while and then just towards the end it will fail.
