Whenever I listen to music(mp3s) off the computer it's pretty choppy, this just started a week ago or so, and I didn't change anything to make it happen. It gets worse when an application is working the computer harder, then it practically cuts right out and I get little blips of noise until the computer stops working so hard. I have tested the speakers on a discman to make sure it wasn't just the speakers, they're fine. I've switched around with mp3 players, windows media, winamp, realplayer, and it still happens on all of them. I can't listen to this choppy music, it's soo annoying, can anyone help?
