Windows 7: Realtek, Windows 7 64RTM Crackle/static/popping

07 Jan 2011   #521

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Has anyone had success with turning off pull mode?

Also on that same page someone says "After more then half a year of trying to solve my crackle/latency issues under windows 7 it seems i have been able to solve it by disabling EIST (Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology) in the bios"

Anyone tried that with successful long-term results?

Optical...Sorry to beg to differ with you as quote you "You have to lol @ the people who think they've fixed this by disabling a wireless device or whatever. There's no rhyme or reason to the thing. Some days it's worse than others, I can go for weeks without it happening. Sometimes it will happen all the time in one media player but not in another.

The people who need to be doing something about this, Microsoft, Realtek etc, aren't. We're posting to the wrong forum. We need to find something closer to the manufacturer and go there mob handed"

I have and have still fixed Several computers in my home and others I have worked on...the key element her is to use the dpclat.exe (find it on the net...googlr the thing). Since removal of my Linksys wireless N PCI card I have NO popping a static any more!!! The DCP checker showed my system as being in the totally RED zone of the whole program, going through and disabling divice by device and comeing to my wireless N card did the trick!!! Come to find out talking to Linksys the wireless PCI N card is NOT compatible with Windows 7...there is No Updates for it nor do they plan on making a update for it as far as Linksys is concerned. I have also installed that card in other computers in my home and have given them the same popping and scratched record sound. I'm not saying it's a Windows 7 fault nor is it a Realtek Sound card issue...but for my issue it was the wireless card hitting the HIGH SPIKES on the DPC Checker and Linksys was VERY WELL AWARE of that problem and there only solution to it was to buy a USB Wireless N Adapter which we have installed on several computers here and THE MUSIC IS CRYSTAL CLEAR here ever since!!! People shouldn't give up I worked on this post for almost a year ago and still shake my head about that there is still "Something" that needs to be done!!! I Love Windows 7 32&64, I do close work with video and audio editing...and when your $1000 sound system sounds like a broken record or you can't play a game online because it sounds like CRAP...well sometimes you need to take your own measure's and find out what really is the root of the problem! And personally I don't think either Realtek nor Windows 7 are the problems!!! BTW...I am a computer builder of top end gaming systems...that $150 Linksys wireless N card sits on a shelf today waiting for someone who would want Vista or Windows XP to come along and I would give the thing away to them! Still this is only my opinion but use the DCP checker...go through your running programs and shut things down 1 by 1, then go through your devises and disable and enable those one by one and see what you results are...if you can stay in the green on the damn thing...your popping is GONE!!!

Windows 7 Home Premium x64


I am having the exact same problem on my Sony VAIO VGN-NW21SF/T. It started around two months ago and at first I thought it was an issue with iTunes, but the problem also occurs in WinAmp, Windows Media Player, VLC Player and QuickTime. It goes for both audio and video.

DPC Latency Checker confirms that there is a problem about every 30 seconds or so, but I am not able to locate what causes this.

I have tried to disable/re-enable all the hardware to be found under Device Manger except the bottom three on the list below as I do not know what the consequences are. It has all been to no avail.

I have also tried booting my Windows with signatured drivers only and that was no help either.

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 (64-bit)

I have a Gigabyte Motherboard without the EasyTune Software, and i'm still having the same issues actually, it's not every 30secs.. it's sometimes when i "double click" a folder or after a while where the PC was on audio inactivity (by audio inactivity i mean: no sounds whatsoever from any source) and i think this is the main issue, i don't know where i read it

The IRQ's Assignments, which i haven't been able to change them to a different ones to see if that fixes the problem!

Found something in a forum but i don't know if that'd work.

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

I finally managed to crack down my problem. By shutting down IAANTmon.exe the problem is solved. The .exe is used to manage/monitor a RAID-system, but since I am running with a single hard drive, for me it is safe to disable from starting up with Windows.

I hope this will work for some of you as well.

Windows 7

Microsoft virus scanners apparently can contribute to the problem. If you are running Microsoft Security essentials or Forefront, try this:

1. Open Microsoft Security Essential or Forefront.
2. Click the Settings tab.
3. Click Excluded files and Locations
4. Click Add.
5. Select either of the following paths, depending on the scanner you are using:

c:\Program files\Microsoft security essentials\MsMpEng.exe
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Forefront\Forefront System\Client\AntiMalware\MsMpEng.exe

6. Click Ok.
7. Click Save changes.
8. Close the scanner program, and then restart the computer.

You might also try excluding other network intensive programs like iTunes.exe or iTuneHelper.exe.

For more on this, see the following:

Windows 7 ulitmate 32 bit

Hi guys!

I put xp back onto my htpc again but now reading more information I have put back windows 7 x64 on AGAIN!!

Still cant find a way around this stupid popping noise, as I have a DTS system amp set up its hard to try and work around it, im trying to leave the audio set-up as 2 channel and not 5.1 DTS.

I find media player classic is good for watching movies so my plot now is to let it encode itself by launching 5.1 DTS without touching it in Sound. (codecs do your work!)

Its worth a try i suppose.

Anybody else come up with any brainwaves?!?!?!?

I have solved the problem.

Well I have solved it for me at least and many others confirm. I have a custom built PC with an ASUS mobo. I unplugged my speaker wire going to the mobo. In my case the wire said "HD Audio" I think this goes to the speaker that beeps when there is an error but I dont know what would be "HD" about that at all... anyways have no idea why this works but it absolutely fixed the problem in my case. just read the solution off a random forum and though the guy was an idiot, but wow it worked.
