Hey guys. Been a while since I've posted here. Here's my prob: Ever since I upgraded from 98 to XP, my computer has had stuttering problems when playing music (mp3s in Winamp, this happens in both the Winamp 2.xx and 3 series), and also (the most frustrating) it freezes up in the exact same manner while playing computer games like counter-strike. The stutter is about a second long in which the CPU just freezes and then recovers. I know the problem isn't my soundcard or gfx card, since during the long running tenure of this problem I have upgraded both, and I currently have a SB Live 5.1 and a GeForce 3 Ti500. The rest of my setup includes a P3 800 and 384 MB RAM (motherboard is maxed out) I've run msconfig several times, keep my startup programs to bare minimum. Any thoughts?
