Hello I recently installed Windows 7 professional 64bit OEM. I am experiencing weird problems while playing music or videos. The sound / video is jerky. This is very intermittent and only happens now and then. For example once a minute during mp3 playback - 2 seconds of this scratchy sound. Video playback does not manifest this problem as often. Previously I used Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit RC and did not have such problems. I updated sound drivers, graphics drivers, chipset drivers, intel matrix storage..During playback I did not notice any heavy CPU usage or anything else that could point me to the right direction of the problem. I haven't tried to do anything else really yet on my notebook such as playing games so I can not confirm if this happens using other applications. Over past two weeks all I did was pretty much just play movies, audio and browsed the web. I also tried installing different media player - right now media monkey to no avail. Also reinstalled codecs, and tried different codeck pack (k-lite). I have search internet for answers but so far haven't found anything that would apply to my issue. Any help or suggestion is much appreciated. Thank you. Sager 8662 Core 2 duo T9600 @ 1.8Ghz Seagate momentus SATA 7200rpm 4GB DDR3 RAM Nvidia GTX 260M Windows 7 pro 64bit, OEM

Go HERE and download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (FREE), update it, and perform a full scan. See if that helps.

Thanks Super Dave for suggestion. This is one of apps I regularly use along with super antispyware and avira. I have not installed it yet, though on this new instalation so I am going to do it right now.

Are you using an SATA or an IDE hard drive?

Hi Dave. I am using SATA HDD. I tried your suggestion - did a scan with avira, malware bytes antimalware, and super antispyware. Did not find anything. :(.

The only other thing I can think of, if you haven't already done so, is to use the MSCONFIG utility to limit your startup programs. See HERE.

I was about to look into startup programs and services. Usually I use sysinternals (winiternals) utility for this, plus I have some program (can't recal the name now) to work with services - or I can do it manually. But I need more time for it :). Today I tried to unistall realtek drivers and let windows install it's driver - intel high definition. The problem still persists, even though it seems like the issue is less frequent. Thanks for your help and time super dave :)

Hmm if there's no trouble with malware and drivers are up to date, you could try repairing Windows Media Player I've found that Windows 7 works best without codec packs it can play most anything except Matroska files out of box.

Have you tried using Windows Media Center yet, totot? I am curious to see if it works for you because of a post I read on another forum. That poster  was reporting jerky playback in Win7 Ultimate 64-bit with every player except Media Center.
