Windows 7: Sound/Audio Lag Youtube as well as in Games

Sound/Audio Lag Youtube as well as in Games

Starting about 2 weeks ago my PC sounds started lagging while watching YouTube videos as well as games. The first suggests something wrong with either my browser or my router, but since it has the same problem while in games I doubt it. (As a side note - the games itself don't lag, only the audio)

Also, the first 'fix' i found while searching for the issue was using the DPC latency checker - but according to that i have no issues whatsoever, which clearly contradicts my audio.

Thanks for the help ^^

Hello Francis1308.

Welcome to Seven Forums.

It is good that you have run latency tests.

Now, perhaps you could check your computer's audio device and see if you have installed the most up-to-date version.
