I'm playing my music and about a minute into the music it would stop playing, but the progress bar would keep moving, after about 30-40 seconds it would resume it's playing.
If I loaded the X64 version of media Player it happens less frequently. The same thing happens with Videos, Movies, DVDs, Anything in Media Player really, no matter the source.
When installing 'ANY' program, just as it starts to install the music stutters. This happens in both X86 and X64 player.
I was told I should run Prime95 to stress the CPU and see if any problems could be found, it reported none on either core after about 9 and a half hours.
After running Prime95 however my problem has become worse, now it happens everywhere in windows. The whole machine freezes for 30-40 seconds and then resumes as if all was fine.
I have changed the Power Supply, I have replaced the Hard Drive, I have replaced the motherboard and I have run scans on my RAM. EVERYTHING came back fine. All the cables inside of the PC have been replaced too. All that is left is Graphics and CPU.
I have a new 790FX Giga-Byte Motherboard, an nVIDIA 8500GT, an AMD Athlon X2 64 5600+ 2 and 320GB Western Digital SATAs.
Oddly enough though this problem is NOT existent in Ubuntu 8.04.
Any suggestions would be great.
I am currently Running Windows Vista Ultimate X64 SP1, I have also tried installing from a different disc.
--EDIT-- Another interesting point is that when I install Windows Vista, after loading windows for the 'Second' time it tells me that the Event Viewer couldn't log any events, this never happens again after this :S
