Windows 7: My audio is garbled when I record any music from any source, need help

My audio is garbled when I record any music from any source, need help

I've tried recording to Roxio, the sound recorder, and Audacity. I've input youtube, a Zoom portable recorder and my Galaxy. It happens every single time. The recording starts very clear and between 2:00 an 2:37 the output audio starts to sound garbled. I've tried everything. Can someone help me? I cannot even record my southern rock band reheasal on any program.

I have a recording studio (using Sonar software).

The first suggestion, as I assume you are using the Connexant integrated audio and not some external audio recording interface, is to get the latest Connexant driver from Toshiba and install that. If the version you have is the same as the latest on the Toshiba site, reinstall it.

Also, since this is a laptop, are you using the AC power adapter?

Yes, I am using the power adaptor that came with the computer.

How about the sound driver?

I would also disable the wi-fi when you are recording and see what that does for it.

Thanks for your interest. I don't know about the sound driver other than it says it's working OK. I wouldn't be able to disable the wi-fi when recording youtube.

You wouldn't be able to when getting something from the web, but if you record using something already on the PC or input something to record you can disable it and see if it makes a difference. All the recording engineers I know, will disable wi-fi if they are using a PC that also connects to the internet when they record.

The sound driver can be critical on many PC's and if the PC (or motherboard) vendor's sound driver is not used there can be problems. Do not allow Windows to search for a driver or install a driver as usually that is not the best driver.

Some ideas:

Get DPC Latency Checker

Seems you've got some CPU usage spikes, find the source.
Agree 100% about ditching the wifi, cable = 1 less possible problem source.
Still stuttering, update drivers of course, monitor processes' CPU in Resource Monitor\Task Manager, disable high cpu services\programs\apps until you eventually find a culprit.

BTW, be sure it's not some windows update, virus scan, indexing, defragging or whatever in that direction happening.

I turned off the wifi and the same results happened. The sound gets garbled after 30 seconds to 2 minutes.
