Heya stingerhs, first thing I checked was that, however using either headphones or plug in speakers produces the same effect. I tried Rays suggestion with the codec pac but the problem has persisted. Bills suggestion did reveal the computer has a very high latency, however the items I disabled, while reducing the latency and improving the stuttering didn't eliminate it.
