Problem with sound

[qanda]This thread is about the Toshiba Satellite A100-277. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]every time I listen to music, from Real player, or from streaming radio station, or limewire, the music slows down and starts skipping. It seems that it does it when I have another application running, even the screen saver makes it slow down…why?

It’s called multitasking and you are overloading your system. For what you are trying to do, it’s under-powered. It could also be your connection, the website the music is coming from as well as issues related to your ISP.

I am not doing anything, even the screen saver makes it skip, how do I fix it?

Try a better player like VLC or WinAmp. Real is a power hogging POS.
