Wierd lag

I don't remember changing anything that could cause this, but one day I turned on winamp and went to play a game. The game played fine, no lag, but just about every time i moved or did something the music would cut out. This happened with Counter-strike, warcraft 3 and splinter cell, so I don't think it's the game. Anyone know if this could be caused by something specific? or general computer lag? I'm pretty low on disk space, have 1.32 gigs out of 27.9. Could that be causing it? Thanks in advance. It's winamp 2.81 by the way

im really not sure but it generally happens when your low on memory. so if you wanna play games and listen to music try to exit some other crap before you play.

Make sure your hard disk is defragged, waiting for the heads to slew around could cause the problem if the music file is fragmented.
