I've got no problem with latency here, the tester keeps me in the green and says should be no problem handling video/audio data streams


Gotta love the people with all the answers excpet the right one!!!!

(full explanation in case newbies are reading)

When I first installed the Realtek drivers I also had pops, skips...etc.
Granted I'm only using stereo and this may be particular to my system only.
Here's the steps I took:

Go to the Realtek control panel.... right click on on all of the graphic input jack representations, select "Connector Retasking" uncheck the "Enable auto popup dialog" selection then setup the audio configuration the way you want it.

Next go to into the registry and remark OUT the Realtek cpl.
I do not want something that invasive running in the background, besides, you only need to to setup/change the initial configuration, a semicolon will prevent it from loading.

;C:\Program Files\Realtek\Audio\HDA\RtHDVCpl.exe -s

Find it here...

HKey_Local_ Machine/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/RUN

Reboot, make sure RtHDVCpl.exe isn't running in the background.

If DPC latency checks out check that you're not getting processor spiking which coincides with the cracking, pops, sputters....etc.

Make sure your motherboard's inf drivers are up to date.

Check MS updates for more recent hardware drivers...etc.

Use this. The R222 drivers work fine on my Asus F81Series laptop.

I don't think thats right because with vista 2.2 hd audio driver it worked fine but now it has created crackling and popping

Agreed, the Aphilion solution didnt help me.
I called Asus support, and they said that it is not a latency problem. Merely, a driver issue with Realtek. I have reverted back to using Vista Realtek drivers, and the popping/cracking have disappeared. This is merely a short term solution until Realtek and Microsoft work out what is wrong. I have an Asus Pro61SL notebook BTW.

Sorry to hear that, at least you have a usable set of drivers.

I'm using the latest Realtek drivers on a Gigabyte P35-S3G mainboard, 4GB RAM without any issues. Well, one small problem, if the computer enters sleep mode, there are some audible pops/crackling after wakeup. Disabling/enabling the Realtek HD audio driver in Device Manager clears this up, basically I don't put the desktop to sleep for now, other than that it's all good.

I'm also running an M-Audio PCI Delta 24/96 Audiophile in the same machine without issues.


Motherboard chipset drivers up to date.
Latest BIOS.
Processor minimum/maximum percentage adjusted.
Run DPC latency checker, note maximum DPC latency.
Check for processor spikes that coincide with the crackling.

Good luck all!

I tried the latest driver, bios updates, disabling mic, using default MS drivers. only this worked. You may want to give it a shot.
