Cracking/intermittent audio and lag.
I'm having a bit of an issue which I can't seem to solve.
Yesterday I noticed that when playing audio on my PC (whether on a video, MP3, DVD, playing a game) my PC will lag noticeably and the audio will crack/drop out. This only seems to happen while I am actually active on the PC (MP3/video playing in the background while browsing the internet, for example). The issue does not occur with line in audio (I have Foxtel audio coming into the card).
I have tried the following:
- Updated audio drivers
- Different sound card (Audigy 2 ZS – primarily using onboard sound)
- Reinstallation of Windows (Windows 7 Ultimate)
- Reflashing BIOS with current version
- Disabling devices which I don't need as specified by DCP Latency Checker (WiFi adapter, firewire adapter, etc)
My current hardware:
- Intel E8400
- Asus P5K-E
- 4GB Kingston RAM (not sure of the exact details, but can find them if needed – they're 4x1GB)
- nVidia GTX 275
DCP Latency Checker tells me the following:
Some device drivers on this machine behave bad and will probably cause drop-outs in real-time audio and/or video streams. To isolate the misbehaving driver use Device Manager and disable/re-enable various devices, one at a time. Try network and W-LAN adapters, modems, internal sound devices, USB host controllers, etc.
Does anyone have any ideas as to what I can do to solve this?
