Chopping audio on XPS 17

When playing audio or video on my XPS 17, the sound is very poor and chopping. The laptop runned on Windows 7, and now it's upgraded to Windows 10, but this makes no difference.

I read some older threads for machines running on XP or Vista, but couldn't found anything for Windows 7. So I don't know where to start for solving this problem. Has anyone to a workaround that could help me solve it?

Hello. There are quite a lot of things that can cause choppy audio. Please see our Choppy/Skipping Audio FAQ to get an idea of the scope of the possible problems. There is plenty there about Windows 7 too.
