Apologies if this is in the wrong section.
I have recently formatted by computer and reinstalled everything, including Windows XP SP3.
Since then, when attempting to watch a movie (avi) or play an mp3, my computer seems to crash (or skip) at random times in song/film for a few milliseconds, then return to normal. This problem occurs with VLC, windows media player and winamp (the only ones ive tried). Also, when looking at CPU usage, when these 'crashes' happen, the CPU activity seems to rise from 1% to around 30% before going back down.
I have tried updating drivers for audio and video, installing different codecs and using an antivirus but with no luck.
I'm pretty sure its not my computer as this problem never existed before i formatted and the 1gig of RAM i have is more than enough to play a file.
If anyone could help me it would be greatly appreciated.
