Windows 7: does anyone actually have the Sound Stuttering fix?

26 Sep 2009   #11


Select software and drivers HP Pavilion Elite m9441uk Desktop PC - HP Customer Care (Canada - English)

You should also be able to use these files. I am particularly interested in BIOS and chipset updates. Then MAtrix.

I am saying, let's make sure all drivers are up to date.

Then let's look for CPU spikes and/or disk I/O spikes (like indexing or system retore snapshots).

okay, everything is up tp date driver wise, I cannot update my bios though because im running windows 7 which the update does not support. I dont know if thats important. I ran the system diagnostics and it found nothing wriong at all. How do i look for spikes to see if thats causing the stuttering?

While it is stuttering, open Task Manager (rt clk taskbar).

Sort processes by CPU twice, bringing the highest numbers to the top. System idle is usually around 99%

I had a stuttering problem too with Windows 7 x64 RTM. Turns out it was Gigabyte's Easy Tune 6. I only use ET to control fan speeds, and it only causes stuttering when ET is open. Fortunately, ET can control fan speed without the ET console running.

I use the RTM x86 for a laptop and have massively stuttering sound as well. Both using the internal sound card as well as an external usb sound card. Haven't found a solution yet.

okay no spikes or anything like that, I also did a heat test and everything is running okay. I dual bootedfto to buid 6801 and the problem completely went away when using that os. unfortunately that particular build causes a different set of more annoying problems. I'm really at a loss with what to try next

Energy managers, especially if you're overclocking, can often be the culprits here. I never really liked AMD's CoolNQuiet for example as even though it works I found it would choke with certain use such as my audio editors (Ableton Live) and even now when I play an MP3 with WMP it will stutter/static.

Check what your setting is here? If not 'high performance' try that and see if the problem changes.

thnx jag
I used latency checker and sure enough i got the attached message. This at least is the first instance of a problem being acknowledged on my pc.
I will post back when i test to see if the realtek stuff in device manager, when disabled, fix the problem.
im also trying the high performance power option seperatly to see if that works.

HELL YEAH.............
hey guys, okay look at the attachment.
The pic shows a latency checker along with my device manager, the real time latency checker once told me that there was something wrong with my devices

I tried disabaling realtek sound assuming that was the problem (I to have tried a million drivers) but the latency checker still said there was a problem, the spikes (in real time) used to correspond with sound stutter/buzzing/popping. Now i get no spikes because i disabled one of the 2 pcie express cards. Okay, i dont kno what pcie cards are, something about sonnecting motherboard to something, sounds important but so far my computer is working with no buzzin for the first time ever.

Might be wrong but at least this is some kind of lead....maybe...anyway, how come i have 2 drivers for pcie. Do you need 2. i wish I had another pc handy to see if 2 is common, just a guess but maybe having 2 causes a problem. GOOD LUCK. Im still glad mines working, i just hope there is no negative effects of the thing i disabled being disabled.
