Windows 7: Sound crackling/popping

Another thing to consider trying is; completely uninstalling the sound card listed in system devices in the device manager; rebooting; letting windows re-detect and reinstall the drivers for the sound card; then go to the sound card manufacturers site and see if there are any updated drivers for your card and download and install them and see if that resolves the issue. Sometimes i believe what can happen is for one reason or another; something within windows will "Corrupt" the audio drivers which can possibly cause the issue you are having. Give this a shot and report back if it doesnt and we can try and go from there.

I have tried both, deleting realtek drivers and let windows download them back, and also manually download from realtek website.

Here is two sound recordings. Using speakers, not headset and problem still exist.

In this video i turn volume completely off and then back on

In this video I only change volume, but i keep it on and wont turn off at all. Using some low sound and bass turned to low.

It happens only when I am adjusting volume or start/stop video

Try connecting your front panel audio and plugging into that with the headphones.

Connected front panel audio to Mobo, exactly same thing there.

OK well I'm out of suggestions unfortunately. Unless there's a resource or virus issue. Which is highly unlikely as you said this moved from the previous machine to this new rig with only those two components transferred....so I think it's one of those two components which is causing the issue.

Strange, I tried my old computer (bought some cheap GPU and RAM) and it still has same crackling problem, and my new built system has it also? Also bought new GPU to this new computer, only RAM exists from old computer, but that shouldnt be the problem because got new ram for old computer and its still crackling.

What the hell.



What is that CPU throttling? how I can disable it?

Ok made new test with latencymon when I was playing and using mumble
CONCLUSION
____________________________________________________________________________________________________ _____
Your system seems to have difficulty handling real-time audio and other tasks. You may experience drop outs, clicks or pops due to buffer underruns. One or more DPC routines that belong to a driver running in your system appear to be executing for too long. One problem may be related to power management, disable CPU throttling settings in Control Panel and BIOS setup. Check for BIOS updates.
LatencyMon has been analyzing your system for 0:06:18 (h:mm:ss) on all processors.

Hardware: ASRock, H97M Pro4

Reported CPU speed: 3299,0 MHz
Measured CPU speed: 3454,0 MHz (approx.)

Note: reported execution times may be calculated based on a fixed reported CPU speed. Disable variable speed settings like Intel Speed Step and AMD Cool N Quiet in the BIOS setup for more accurate results.

MEASURED INTERRUPT TO USER PROCESS LATENCIES
____________________________________________________________________________________________________ _____
The interrupt to process latency reflects the measured interval that a usermode process needed to respond to a hardware request from the moment the interrupt service routine started execution. This includes the scheduling and execution of a DPC routine, the signaling of an event and the waking up of a usermode thread from an idle wait state in response to that event.

Highest measured interrupt to process latency (s): 1383,111268
Average measured interrupt to process latency (s): 3,409666

Highest measured interrupt to DPC latency (s): 1366,970831
Average measured interrupt to DPC latency (s): 0,857943


____________________________________________________________________________________________________ _____
REPORTED ISRs
____________________________________________________________________________________________________ _____
Interrupt service routines are routines installed by the OS and device drivers that execute in response to a hardware interrupt signal.

Highest ISR routine execution time (s): 153,836617
Driver with highest ISR routine execution time: HDAudBus.sys - High Definition Audio Bus Driver, Microsoft Corporation

Highest reported total ISR routine time (%): 0,138836
Driver with highest ISR total time: dxgkrnl.sys - DirectX Graphics Kernel, Microsoft Corporation

Total time spent in ISRs (%) 0,188672

____________________________________________________________________________________________________ _____
REPORTED DPCs
____________________________________________________________________________________________________ _____
DPC routines are part of the interrupt servicing dispatch mechanism and disable the possibility for a process to utilize the CPU while it is interrupted until the DPC has finished execution.

Driver with highest DPC routine execution time: nvlddmkm.sys - NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 340.43 , NVIDIA Corporation

REPORTED HARD PAGEFAULTS
____________________________________________________________________________________________________ _____
Hard pagefaults are events that get triggered by making use of virtual memory that is not resident in RAM but backed by a memory mapped file on disk. The process of resolving the hard pagefault requires reading in the memory from disk while the process is interrupted and blocked from execution.

NOTE: some processes were hit by hard pagefaults. If these were programs producing audio, they are likely to interrupt the audio stream resulting in dropouts, clicks and pops. Check the Processes tab to see which programs were hit.

Process with highest pagefault count: arma3.exe

Total number of hard pagefaults 263
Hard pagefault count of hardest hit process: 84
Highest hard pagefault resolution time (s): 1509260,805396
Total time spent in hard pagefaults (%): 0,440081
Number of processes hit: 14
