Okay well my problem may seem not much of a problem but every day it gets more and more annoying. Around two months ago I bought a brand new Dell Inspiron 1720 laptop with a 17" screen. I received this and after loading my audio files and information onto it I felt as if there was something wrong. The audio would randomly skip and I felt as if the laptop couldn't deal with doing anything. I reformatted it several times then had a technician come round and 'fix it', but to be honest, he was more useless than my door and I had the whole machine sent back. It just didn't live up to the specifications. It was slow. Sluggish. Jumpy. Not what I had expected. So I recently got my replacement laptop and well - it's pretty much the same. The computer is slow, but sometimes I can deal with that, but one thing that has become extremely annoying is that the music I play, whether in iTunes or Media Player, or VLC... it skips and jumps at random times. It's not the tracks. I monitored the CPU usage graph in task manager and it will jump from 3% to 29% then from 4% to 50% in a number on seconds. I have contacted Dell several times but they are terrible. Useless.
I thought I would try you guys to see if you could help me.
