Procaster cutting sound

I'm having a problem with the 20.3.10 version of Procaster. It keeps cutting all sound or just one source being broadcasted every 15-25 seconds be it from mic or any other device. I can't use the previous versions either, the 20.3 drops from the channel and procaster doesn't notice anything, 20.2.69 has desync with video getting delayed and the earlier one desyncs the other way: sound gets delayed.

I'm guessing that the 20.3.10 problem is easiest to solve. I have updated flash and tried different versions and the problem isn't in bandwidth or bitrate. I have streamed just fine with a laptop for about a year with worse specs than my pc I keep having problems with.

Intel core 2 duo e7300 2.66GHz overclocked to 3GHz
8GB of RAM
Windows 7 64-bit
All I use with procaster is Creative Fatality usb-headset, problem not solved by unplugging
Additional software: any that makes sound, internet browser or any mediaplayer or game

The laptop I use with no problems with said connection is an Acer Aspire 8935G

I the Acer Aspire on the same network? 400kbps upload speed does not meet our minimum requirement for broadcasting, which is 700kbps. Insufficient bandwidth could contribute to the issue. You may be able to stream at mobile quality, however even then your results may vary.

Yes, with the Acer laptop streaming goes just fine, in the same network. There have been no problems whatsoever that I couldn't solve/weren't my own fault this far.

Mobile quality doesn't resolve the problem.

Also, when streaming with the pc it doesn't matter if I'm streaming just a still image, at a bitrate of around 150Kbps or so procaster tells me, sound will still cut. I've also tried it with a connection that has 10Mbps upload and on that the sound cuts too.
