Windows 7: Music stuttering problem with Windows 7

Music stuttering problem with Windows 7

I am having an issue with my Dell Optiplex 780 whenever I play music or play a game with music in it, the sound will stutter for two seconds at random times.

It it hard to describe the stuttering sound but it sounds like when you are grinding gears on a car but made as an electronic sound.

It does not matter what song, or what game is playing sound, the sound stutter is exactly the same every time.

I Googled the problem and found that this was an issue years ago but I do not see anything recent about this problem nor is there any posted fixes of any kind on the problem

Does anybody know how to fix this?

Hello Sylveon mate have you tried reseating the card or updating the driver and have you recently added any new software for playback??

As a first step, download and run the free Resplendence Latency Mon program. It will help and may point you to the problem.

Stuttering and several other audio issues have been around for a long time. There is no "one fix" for the problem, each has to be addressed on its own. However, Wi-Fi is a known cause. The audio is on a shared IRQ (Interrupt) with a higher priority device and sometimes that is the problem.
