Windows 7: Sound issues driving me crazy

11 Nov 2010   #11

Windows 10 64 bit

Video can be one of the most often causes. I have an ATI Radeon HD4850 video card and I can't use the last 3 versions due to some game problems. I would try several older versions and see if it makes any difference.

You could also give the "uninstall" a try. Uninstall the Video in the Device Manager (do not uninstall the drivers) then restart the PC and when Windows starts it will reinstall the Video. Sometimes this puts devices on a different shared IRQ which can make a difference. Go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for the Video card to highlight it and then LEFT click on "uninstall" - restart the PC.

That shows a list of different driver routines executing over 20ms. This gives the impression of a system which runs entirely slow. Possibly this is a throttling issue due to overheating. Please check your CPU speed with CPUZ and make sure it shows normal values before looking at anything else.
