I am using an Acer Travelmate 8200 Laptop series.
Recently I am having this problem of my computer slowing down in a freaky way.

for eg. my windows media player plays songs at half speed then normal again especially when a new program is opened for eg. Window Explorer. The same goes for video or any application. Even the system sounds play at that speed. The problem is unique because other than that everything seems fine. It is not just an audio or video codec problem because I updated my codecs already. I did a disk fragment. I did a chkdsk. The problem still persists. Now I do not think this is a crash problem because after it works all fine then a minute later it is back again for a few secs and so on and on.

Please anyone HELP!!

Thank you.

Please, post some computer info:
- processor type, amount of RAM (hold Windows logo key, hit Pause/Break key)
- hard drive size/free space (open "My Computer", right click on hard drive letter, click "Properties")
- security programs in use (antivirus, firewall)
