I have an older laptop that was recently upgraded to Windows 7. Now that it has been upgraded, it's been having sound issues. The sound lags and pops constantly. Sometimes it will happen right away, sometimes I can play though six songs iTunes before it starts going crazy.
The laptop itself is aViao model number PCG-K45 with a Windows 7 32 bit OS. The audio device is a realtak AC97. Any suggestions on how to fix this problem without downgrading to XP?
