Is My Computer About To Crash?


Recommended Posts

About a month ago I started having trouble with my computer. At first I thought it was my phone service (Magic Jack) because I could only hear about half of what the other person was saying because it was constantly breaking up. They could hear me just fine but I had a hard time following what they were saying so I just quit using the internet based house phone all together and just use my cell phone. Well, later I discovered that it isn't only the internet phone service but it happens with anything audio such as video clips with audio or when I tried listening to music. I have also noticed a hitch ( for lack of a better term) whenever I move the cursor from one spot to another, it sort of stops for a second before continuing on to the position I am trying to move it to. This really doesn't happen when browsing the internet but when I am playing a game of solitaire and making moves it happens frequently.

 

Is this an indication on an impending computer crash or is it all audio related? Do I need a new audio card or would that even fix the problem? My computer is an Emachines W3650 with an Intel Celeron processor running Windows XP and has been a good one for several years with no problems until this started happening. I have over 85% free space on the hard drive so memory is no problem. Would doing a system restore to a previous time perhaps help?

All is working well again and even increased the speed at which all systems are running, back to the way it was before this all happened. :coolsmiley:
