There are a few things that you can try to help resolve your problem. First, make sure you have the latest drivers for your sound card. Be sure to check the "How do I install my sound card driver" section, for links to the most popular sound card manufacturers. If the problem still persists perform the following: Click on the Windows start button, click on settings, click on control panel. While in control panel click on "sounds and audio devices". Next click on the "audio" tab. Within the audio tab under "sound playback" click on advanced. Next click on the "performance" tab. Within Audio Playback slide the "hardware acceleration" bar to left, to the "basic" setting. Under the "sample rate conversion quality" section you can also slide the bar to the left, to the "standard" setting as well. By performing the above actions, this should help resolve some of the more common "stuttering" effects while playing Dark Age of Camelot.
