sound skips and stutters when playing media files

Everytime I try playing a MP3, or an mpeg it seems like it skips and stuters for the first 5 seconds or so then its fine. I have tried the regular media player and winamp for MP3 but its all the same. Audio Cd's do this as well. Now my computer is no powerhouse but under windows 98 it played everything just fine. I tweaked the cache memory a bit and it seemd to help but not a lot. Any ideas or suggestions? My specs:

AMD-K62 500Mhz
128 RAM
Riptide Modem/soundcard combo


I am dual booting 98 and XP. 98 is on the primary partition and XP is on the next one. (I believe Microsoft recommends this anyway when dual booting 9x and XP)

Thanks

Are you by any chance running a Nvidia based video card ? The reason I asked is that I also had this problem and after I removed the Nvidia card the problem was gone. Also is your machine a Compaq by any chance ?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
