Geforce Go 7700 - sound stuttering issues, is there an updated driver?

Hello,

As the topic says, I'm having extreme sound stuttering & distortion issues using the latest driver for this old graphic card (179.48, February 2009). I cannot browse a webpage with Flash content without hearing crackling sound. Same thing happen whenever I'm playing mp3 file and opening applications on Windows.
I can certainly state that the driver is causing this issue, since disabling other components and devices on my laptop won't help. Furthermore, installing some very old driver (98.02) seems to fix the issue, but as you may understand, performance is terrible and I am not even able to watch movies smoothly on youtube.

My question is: is there a way to compare these two drivers and manage to mod the newest as to remove the sound stuterring issues?
If not, is there an updated driver available anywhere? I understand my laptop is 7 years old, yet it is fully functional and working properly; I wish Nvidia didn't stop supporting that video card 3 years after its release.

For the record, I have always tried to install some 300.x drivers series using modded inf, without success (either installing it wouldn't work using the 'Have disk' Method, or it would work but performance was terrible).

I'm using Windows 7 32bits. I am suffering the same issue on the 64 bits edition as well as on Windows 8 (drivers are the same anyways!).
Any help would be strongly appreciated.

I do not see any newer drivers. Have you tried letting windows install default drivers? Uninstall the nvidia drivers, reboot and let windows install.

Thank you for your answer. With "default" windows drivers, sound is fine but performance is terrible (worse than 98.02 drivers). Also, there are some 'newer' drivers on Windows Update, these are the best performance wise but brings the issue of sound crackling over again.

Try using them, and update your flash. If that works the update the video driver again.

Afaik there's no new firmware available for my graphic card :/
It's a pity tbh, the 'standard' Geforce 7s get extended support and drivers still get updated in 2013 ...

Flash ain't the problem. The stuttering issues happens whenever some webpage is content-heavy. It also happens on some windows applications, for instance Spotify

adding more Ram should help.
