Windows 7: Audio pops/cracks

Audio pops/cracks

Hello guys,I`ve been trying to solve this problem for almost a week.I`ve clean installed windows 7 64 bits,and since then,I have cracks in both my headphones and speakers which occur like every 1 minute,and it seems I can only hear `em while I`m listening to music.I`m sure its not an mp3/player problem,since all my songs are in 320kbps and wav,even in asio4all I encounter this problem.
I`ve ran dpc latency checker,and mostly I have green bars,but frequently red/yellow ones.
Here`s my performance analyzer CPU.etl : WeTransfer
Thank you.

Hi and welcome to 7F. Would be very helpful if you could fill up your system specs. See here System Info - See Your System Specs for how if you're not sure. Did you make any hardware changes when reinstalling Windows and are all your drivers installed properly

What do you have ASIO4ALL for? That program has a 50/50 chance of working correctly or causing problems.
I have a recording studio and that program frequently comes up on recording forums and most agree not to use it.

However, If you are getting hits on the DPC latency checker then its a Windows process, or possibly Wi-Fi if that is what you have that is causing it. You can also run the Resplendence Latency Mon that gets deeper into the system.

As noted, please fill in the "My System Specs". It helps us to try and help you.

Also, here is how to post screen shots on this forum

Just installing ASIO4ALL can cause problems. I tried it on a PC I had as I had a device that did not have an ASIO driver and it messed up my recording interface unit (a Focusrite Saffire Pro 40) and I had to uninstall ASIO4ALL and reinstall the drivers for the Saffire Pro 40.

The ASIO4ALL may not be causing your problems, but I would uninstall it as a first step.

Run the Resplendence Latency Mon and see what it tells you. It delves deep into the system and has many reports.

One other thought. When you reinstalled, did you try it with just Windows and the sound drivers installed?

Have a look at the below thread and it might help if nothing else does and read all the suggestions there but first follow fireberd advice
