Alright, first off, we'll need full system specs, such as videocard, soundcard, amount of RAM installed, CPU, Windows version, DirectX version, and so on. That'll make it much easier for us to help you with your problem :).
Always make sure you have the latest drivers installed, especially for your sound- and videocard.
Update your drivers (http://www.windrivers.com).

nothing to do with this, but with what program u did that image that say "you be cool"

Also, what formats does this happen with?
MP3, WAV, MID, WMA, MOD, Audio CD, all of these?
Does the same thing happen with other players, or just Winamp?
If just with Winamp only, have you installed any 3rd-party plugins?
If so, which ones? Are any of them active?
(General Purpose, DSP/FX, Visualization)
What other programs are running at the time?
Like Budgie says, it's more than likely a soundcard driver issue
Answer our questions as best as you can,
and check out that thread which Budgie linked to,
especially the "Problems with Skipping" section

Okay, cheers for the sys specs.
As long as you've got all the latest drivers, everything seems pretty cool,
though the SoundMax sounds a bit suspicious, sad to say.
Is this just an integrated sound chip, not actually a soundcard?
Anyway, if you could possibly answer some of my questions from above . . . hey, you've probably already done so by the time I post this message ;)
Not sure if Budgie's still around to answer your question?
It's 2.15am where he is . . . and his footy team just lost 5-1 to England, hehe :D

I'm sure this topic has been covered here many of times but I have been looking and there are so many different responses and different problems I am going to ask about this for myslef. I have played MP3z through WinAmp for over 1 year now and I runnning into a problem with the songs skipping when I do anything on the internet. I ahve a cable modem which is new but I can't imagine why this would cause me a problem. I really never used the internet on this computer till now snce I got the cable modem so I don't if this would have happened before this. My computer is an AMD k6-2 400mhz with 320 meg of ram, an ati rage 128 video card, a yamaha sound card, and all the newest versions of software including windows 98 second edition. I only get these skips or bleeps in my music when I am doing things on the net like downloading form n*pster, surfing on IE or netscape. I have been doing high memory task like running filters on photoshop, creating web pages on pagemill, and doing move editing while playing MP3z and not havin this problem but if I try and listen to a MP3 and check my email I get the skips/bleeps. Will someone please help me out with this one. And to the person who helps me get this fixed first, I will send out an extra 6gig HD I have just as a thank you.
All this is exactly what hapens to me, the computers looks similar, and i use those programs too. The only that im not going to do , is the hd thing. :D

Does the problem still occur when you close all programs such as ICQ, mIRC, Zone Alarm, AudioGalaxy Satellite, Norton (btw, what kind of Norton program? Those tend to get into Winamp's way under certain circumstances)? I would recommend to close all those programs and see if your problem disappears.
Furthermore, are DMA transfers for your harddrive enabled? DMA transfers usually give a nice performance boost :). To check if DMA transfers for your HDD are active, do the following: Go to your computer's Control Panel -> System -> Device Manager -> Drives -> Generic IDE Disk Type0X (where the "X" is the number of harddrive, usually one or another entry like that with a "2" instead of a "1"). Double click that entry and choose the Settings - tab. Checkmark DMA if it's not checked already. DMA transfers are disabled by default and should be enabled to take off load of your CPU and speed up drive performance in general. Do the same with your CD-ROM drives.
Does all not apply if you are using a SCSI system ...
I agree with DJ Egg saying that your soundcard SoundMAX sounds suspicious indeed :(. I have heard that that soundcard's drivers suffer from certain driver issues, but anyways,
get the latest drivers (http://www.windrivers.com) for your soundcard. I am wondering as well if that sound-solution is a seperate card or an on-board solution on your computer's mainboard.
Having the latest drivers installed is essential :). Your DirectX version is current and should be alright at all.
What output plugin are you using within Winamp? DirectSound or waveOut? In order to check that, open up Winamp first. Then you press the CTRL and the P - key together to make the Winamp preferences window to appear. There you go to Plug-ins -> Output -> highlight Nullsoft DirectSound plug-in v2.0.
Now close Winamp and let it play a song (stop playback if a song was playing, otherwise Winamp won't notice the change).
The Winamp setup default is the WaveOutput plugin, so maybe changing to DirectSound solves your problem ;).
@ DJ Egg: Haha, yeah, I am rather pissed Germany sucked so much that they lost 5 - 1 against England :mad:. I have lost my faith in the German team's skills :rolleyes:. I am sleepy, too, my girlfriend is calling me to go to bed, as well :rolleyes: :D.

I just made that signature today :cool:. I used Fireworks 3, a font that comes with Windows 98 SE, and the EyeCandy 4000 filters. Pretty easy to do :D.
