Windows 8 audio skipping problems?

I had Windows 8 installed on my Compaq CQ57 laptop with AMD E-450, 4GB of RAM and 128GB Crucial M4 SSD for quite some time now. And while i thought a lot of things were bad about Win8, it was quick for some stuff. Except something that was getting on my nerves and i’m not exactly sure what was causing it. I only know i don’t get the same issue with Windows 7.

The problem was in sound crackling and skipping. Sometimes in MusicBee music player but like always when i was listening to music on Soundcloud, Grooveshark and even Youtube. Basically anything that required Adobe Flash in browser. It was so annoying i had to reinstall Windows 7 and now it’s all fine again.

I really don’t know what was going on as i tried with Windows audio drivers and also by using latest Realtek HD drivers and it didn’t really fix anything.

Anyone else experiencing the same issue with Windows 8 but not with any other Windows version?
