Windows 7: does anyone actually have the Sound Stuttering fix?

Win 7 Ultimate x64

This means that your motherboard has 2 PCI-Express slots on it. These are the slots in which you install after market video cards. It is normal to have 1-4 depending on the type of motherboard you have. According to your specs, you have a 4870 video card, and that means it is plugged into one of these 2 slots. Your next challenge is to see if the problem is originating from the empty slot or the one with your video card.

Another thing you could check to troubleshoot is to see if your video card inside has a small black audio wire connected to it coming from somewhere off the motherboard or soundcard if you have one. If you do, and you are using the standard green/black/pink ports in the back for your speakers, then take this wire off your video card and see if this solves anything. Otherwise it could be the PCI-E slot in your motherboard itself or possibly the video card causing a disturbence in the PCI-E slot it's in. What make of PSU do you have? You seem to have enough power but the quality of PSU is important.

Just in case - make sure the video card is in the correct PCIe slot. Also, check BIOS for the correct setting for the slot, if any. Also, does the video card have a power connection - and if so, is it connected?

My motherboard has only one pci-e slot. I remember because I had planned to get 2 4870 and run in crossfire. I installed it a few months back in the slot and yes it had a power connection. I would check to see if its still connected but the graphical capabilities of my machine at the moment would not be possible if it it was unconnected. Its strange that the problem is gone by disabling the pcie 802.11n wireless card. My pc still function the same. My gpu is working. I have sound without stuttering. Should I be worried?

If you do not use the wireless, and disabling it solves the problem, you are in good shape.

You will still have an unresolved problem in your system capabilities, but it will not affect you.

You may wish to reconsider your assumptions in your original post.

The drivers are for network adapters that are using a PCI express slot, at least that's what windows thinks. From what i've read about DPC latency problems, is that they are caused by software problems. And often the driver for wireless network adapters are causing the problem.

So if you don't use it, disabling or removing it physically from your computer is a good option. If you do want to use it, search for an updated device driver.

I was having a stuttering sound issue in win7 x64, and having a gigabyte motherboard, I was hoping this was the problem. Well, I uninstalled the energy saver and the easy tune that someone else mentioned in this thread. Well, neither of those fixed the problem. I did finally pin it down to the program SpeedFan though. So, if anyone else is having an issue and has speedfan installed, exit the program and see if that fixes it.

windows 7 (64 bit)

Hello everyone, I'm new here. Please help. I'm having the same audio problems as some of you - stuttering on windows 7. It can be when using media player or any other sound and sequencing software. Since I compiled this equipment to produce music, it's a bit useless. I'm using an external Roland UA-25EX audio/midi interface as my soundcard. I had the same problem with Realtek and Creative soundcards.
Has anyone posted a remedy yet? Are Microsoft aware of this glitch? Also random mouse cursor - what's that all about? Just goes anywhere it wants!

Sound stuttering fix

I had the same problem. The bothering stuttering and then the computer switched off after one hour or more. I solved it this way: in device manager I disabled the driver that controls the slot PCI Express 2. I tried some other solutions, but unfortunately none of them seemed to work. Then I began to disable all the devices related to USB, sound, internet, and I got it. The program DPC Latency checker was a great help. I hope this can help somebody.
