    Default Pc Help

    My laptop's been doing this for a while now & I've had enough. I'm trying to edit a home movie for a Xmas present & I can't sample any audio tracks properly as the audio is constantly stutering, you can here what's playing but it's ****!!!
    It also does the same with the musicclip windows plays when it' first boots up & shuts down. Sometimes this is ok, sometimes it stuters.
    Also if you just play a cd in the drive it is the same.

    Any ideas what's going on or how I can fix this.

    Hi Ben.

    Media work like this requires lots of different things, the most important one is to have DMA enabled for your cd rom drive.

    Also a good processor and plenty of memory helps as well.

    For a not too intensive solution I'd recommend that you do the DMA check 1st then reload the graphic chip,sound chip and DX drivers.

    Also which software are you using to edit with? if its Windows own movie maker program, dont bother it's utter rubbish, go for a Ulead trial to start with, and if that sorts things you'll have more of an idea what to use in future.

    HTH.

    The issue isn't with the fact I'm editing a home movie which incidently yes I'm using windows movie maker as I have good results from it, yes I can see it's basic & would love to try something good.
    The audio stutters when p0erforming basic things like the playing the windows tune on starting up & shutting down. Even the short bleepy noise MSN makes when someone replys to you stutters!
    My PC advisor friend I turn to has suggested it's corrupt software & is gonna have a look over Xmas as I woudn't know where to start with trying to reload the drivers as I believe they are all on some discs in the box the laptop came supplied with.

    Ahh, I see, that will be either the sound chip driver or DX, make sure you get DX9c this time, d/l it if you dont have any new software, i.e games in the last 2 yrs, and one last one you could have the wave table up too high.

    Settings - Control Panel - Sounds And Audio Devices - Advanced.

    Or at the advanced point select, select the Advanced next to speaker volume icon, and go to performance, then notch back hardware acc and sample rate sliders, see if that cures it. hth.
