Windows 7: Buzzing Freezing when playing Media files

16 Oct 2013   #21

W7, W8.1

default drivers from Microsoft, how do I do this?
In Device Manager, see attached pic. A reboot may be necessary. Windows will (should!) try to fetch some adequate default driver, but not knowing the exact condition\settings of laptop\OS, can't say exactly what will happen.

nb: there is always a risk of making things worse... :O) am recommending a disk image backup + a new restore point before experiments starts.

Reason I post here is I had some exact same problems\symptoms on an older Compaq, sure looked\sounded like hardware failure, but turned out to be driver related, and got fixed in the end. Good luck.

It might be a driver issue, but for now it seems like a software issue, something is taxing the CPU which is typically the cause for popping / looping sound (DPC / APC).

Try to clean up your start up sequence as it might be simple as that.

Yep a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 is a good option that will eliminate any bloatware that might be causing the issue.
