I don't know if your problem is solved yet but I just wanted everyone to
know this nightmare: I bought a new Gateway with Windows Vista Prem. Had
the same problem as you, with skipping and distortion on Media Player 11.
This was happening with commercial cds and home burned ones as well as when
playing games. Anything with audio. So I called the Gateway support and
was advised to update the Realtek driver, then we updated the Vista stuff and
this did not help. So then I downloaded Winapp and it was still skipping.
So I returned the computer to Curcuit City and got an identical one thinking
it must be a lemon. This one immediately was skipping. So then I spent 4
hours at the store finding another computer. Got an Acer now. Well guess
what? SAME THING!! SKIPPING STILL!!!! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!
SCREAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And there are no enhancements checked off. This, I
conclude must be a Vista problem, since I've just had 3 brand new computers
in 3 days do the same thing! And I'm wondering as someone else said, Does
Microsoft ever read these?? So if you have a conclusion would you or anyone
share with me? Help!!
