Windows 7: latency issues ?

latency issues ?

I have major latency issues and from DPC checker have figured out that its my network adapters (or at least I think?). When I disable them, I get nearly perfect sound. Ive re installed them/downloaded new drivers multiple times and no difference.

I've disabled/enabled devices correctly in the BIOS.
I've tried various memory sticks, sound card devices, PSU's, network cards; non of which makes any difference.
I've 'run' memtest, and used extensive testing with post probe/micro-scope (micro 2000) which revealed no issues. I also dismantled it and gave it a thorough dusting and 'contact' clean, non of which has made any difference at all?
The problem goes away when the network is disabled. I don't want to have to disable the network connection every time I listen to music! All my drivers are up to date on windows 7. Also using pentium 4 CPU/DDR2 3Gb. All other functions work perfectly. The network card is a tenda W322p/PCI.
The same problem exists with either the motherboard on-board sound, or seperate sound card.
It sounds like a fast repetitive stutter similar to a vinyl LP styli that has got stuck in one groove over and over again; e.g. "gra-gra-gra-gra-grateful".

found this: it says there is nothing that can be done! IRQ conflict - Onboard LAN and Sound card, how to change IRQ? - Microsoft Community "No matter what, you can't control PCI IRQs."


My PC has seen quite a few PSU's in its time! It currently has a HIPER MODULAR TYPE R. This one hasn't been in the machine for that long - it's still quite new in fact. All the voltages and amps check out OK.

As a matter of interest I haven't heard that many good comments about Creative but it is worth keeping in mind another sound card the brand I have (Asus Xonar DG's) in my machines nice cards and not expensive.

Yes creative do have a bad reputation, I agree. It works fine when the wi-fi network is disabled though. One of my neighbours has a current model high end sound card and I tried that and the problem was still there. I also tried the on board integrated mainboards own sound and the problem was still there. I did remember to enable and disable devices in the BIOS also. Tried three different sound sources all of which are fine when the wi-fi is disabled. Also tried my neighbours PSU with no difference either. My PSU is quite new though.

The wi-fi and audio (x-fi) share the same IRQ (21) With no conflicts reported. Apparently this can't be changed in windows 7? IRQ conflict - Onboard LAN and Sound card, how to change IRQ? - Microsoft Community "No matter what, you can't control PCI IRQs."


Don't mind at all if anyone wants to tell me that they have similar issues as we may well be able to help each other somehow? i.e. 'pool' our experiences, resources, knowledge etc!

@thedoc735,I'd like to make it clear that in no way do i find you rude and neither have you upset me.
I can't see the problem of jumping on a thread with a similar problem as the op the more the merrier,and
maybe a solution might be found.

It is not "the more the merrier" for help that we provide. It is a one OP at a time unless someone would chime it that they found a solution in the thread. With more people there is more confusion as I have stated. It make a real mess of things. Our people don't get upset if a person starts a new thread for an issue. We however don't want threads on the SAME issue posted all over the forums.

-------------------------------------------

It's very simple.
1. Stepping all over the last thread we lost the OP.
We don't like that. We want to help.
2. People trying to help can't keep one problem and computer specs separate. We also can't keep track of what suggestion was used on what computer and the results.
3. Can you think of the mess if all BSOD were all in one thread.
4. The best way to do it on this Forum is this Forms methods. It has worked for tens of thousand of people and computers with problems. It works for over a quarter of a million members and ever more that are not members.
5. We have owners, operators and monitors on this Form I presume will take suggestion on changes to our methods. When the suggestions are presented in a proper fashion.

Have a nice day.
