Got a new computer at work (Dell Optiplex 760 w 3.25 GB RAM - running Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3). When I try to play my music files (originally downloaded from purchased CD's on my old computer) on this new computer through Windows Media Player the sound is stuttering. Randomly. My IT dept. can't figure it out. I was running WMP v. 9 and today I updated to v. 11. It doesn't matter. Still stuttering. I have little Bose desktop speakers. When I go into the control panel on my computer and click on the "sounds and audio devices" icon it says SoundMax HD Audio. I'm assuming that's the sound card? The music files are local on my hard drive. It's driving me crazy....and I'm not a sophisticated computer user. Help. Thank you.

Same computer same problem. I updated all drivers, updated WM player, no luck. It stutters even when I play music files with other media players. Seems like a widespread problem. Is any of you running dual monitors?

Finally found the cure for Optiplex 760 stuttering

The problem is in the BIOS setting. Do this:

1. Reboot and hit F2 to get into the BIOS.
2. Expand the Performance section on the left
3. Click on "C State Control".
3. Uncheck the "C State Control" box.
4. Apply Changes.
5. Exit.

That should solve the stuttering problem.
