Default Video Problems in XP

So I don't know what's going on with my computer when playing videos it would all of a sudden pause and have jaggies in vlc or in wmp. Happened all of a sudden and it doesn't seem to be my cpu or ram being a problem since they never go past 20% usage cpu and ram usage is also very little. I even shrunk my partition and reinstalled xp again but its happening again. Would this be a hard drive issue of some sort? or some setting I'm missing? The video's aren't even 720p videos but lower quality 350mb tv shows...

I had that problem once, turns out it was the soundcard drivers. If VLC lets you pick an audio renderer try changing it.

I would download hard drive disagnostic software from the manu. asap and give it a run.
All's well that's Haswell
