Sound and video stuttering.

Q: Sound and video stuttering.

I recently changed my system from a dual cored system and upgraded to the following spec

AMD Phenom 9950 2.6ghz quad core
Asrock Alive Xfire motherboard
Corsair Extreme series SSD 32gb
Windows 7 Pro
ATI Radeon 5770 x2 in CrossfireX
Sony Blu Ray reader
NEC DVDRW
Corsair Hydro series liquid cooling
4 GB DDR2 PC6400
250GB Seagate Baracuda
750w high powered PSU with four 19 amp rails.

It has Windows 7 professional 32 bit system freshly installed on it. But it has a major sound looping and slight video stutter to it.

So i installed an external usb sound card and disabled the onboard sound in the bios to combat the problem. This did not help one bit.

So i try and play a file from my external hard drive instead of playing a youtube video, hopefully to try and see if it was my connection. Again nothing.

Im not really that technologically minded and i know that this system is much better then what i was running before but this sound problem is really driving me mad. I never had this on my previous system.

The only differences i can see between a totally fresh install is that this has a wireless card installed and that it has Microsoft security essentials installed too. Perhaps i need to uninstall these?

Any ideas people as it is driving me mad.

Many thanks in advance.

A: Sound and video stuttering.

When it is stuttering, what kind of RAM usage and processes do you see in Task Manager? What is eating up your CPU cycles and RAM--if anything? You might have something running in the background that you are unaware of, and that should show in the processes tab of Task Manager.

Have you tested your RAM or can you swap in other sticks?

Hi

I have an ongoing problem when listening to music or watching videos. Everything becomes fragmented and the sound and video will stutter.
On two occasions when listening to music (via windows media player) the stuttering got so bad that the media player froze and i got the blue screen of death and it started to do a physical memory dump.

I have Kaspersky running......and i have also ran Mbam; superantispyware; Tdss killer; dpc latency checker and they found nothing out of the ordinary.
I downloaded Vlc and ran videos via that but they still stuttered.

The problem seems to be getting steadily worse and the rest of the computer seems to be slowing up with programs taking a long time to load or not loading at all.
The browser now frequently will not respond.

Does anyone have any ideas?

My computer is: HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook running windows 7 64bit sp1

Recently I have experienced poor sound quality when I try to play an ordinary video clip on the internet. It is an on-off, sort of stuttering sound as if the sound was being reproduced before it had all been received. I checked my download speed at the time this occurred and it was 6.5 Mbps. My operating system is as follows:

A:Stuttering sound on video playback

Most common causes are the stream itself (either to high for your internet connection, or network congestion, or server congestion) or the media player (ie: Flash, java, etc.).

First step, update/reinstall the media player.

You also need to note the type of video. For instance, if you are streaming HD video, then you could simply be seeing a hardware lmitation (ie: your PC is too slow). This would be the case if your PC specs are accurate.

Open Task Manager and watch the cpu usage. If it is high (ie: 90% +), then you are likely seeing the limits of your hardware. You can switch to the processes tab to see which process is using the cpu.

Hi Guys hope you can help as you have done in the past for me. my Toshiba satellite p20 is freezing up the sound and video playback is stuttery as well as mouse movement. I think that as this is rather an old laptop, its nearing its end but i also think that as i have a lot of processes running in the background that i have no idea what they do, hese may be my problem.I have an external 500g hard drive connected at all times. i run mozilla with ABP running and have done a full scan using esset antivirus( which detected 2 probs and deleted them) and have run Super anti spyware full clean with clear report. i have run hijackthis and have pasted the result. i also went to copy the minidump files in windows but the folder is empty. please help if you can guys. thank you in advance.

I searched relentlessly for answers to this question but couldn't find a resolution that worked for me.

Starting just yesterday (Sunday, Nov 4) I noticed that any audio I tried playing, be it mp3, wav, etc. in any media player came out distorted, with a stutter... video/games of any kind also stutter on approximately a 2 second loop. If I move the mouse around the screen, it will skip on this same loop.

Right now, with FireFox opened, Task Manager tells me that I'm running at 51% cpu usage (64 processes). I've tried closing unnecessary programs, to try and find a particular program causing the problem, but nothing is helping.

I've tried about every suggestion I've seen in other threads; I've messed with DMA settings, disabled/re-enabled my audio driver (Sigmatel High Def), checked my spyware detector for a memory capture settings, run a spyware check, scanned for viruses, and defragmented and still am having the same problems.

Any help? I'm a bit of a novice here, so be sure to give me step by step instructions.

Thanks in advance.

Hello!

I have a very odd problem. When i boot up my PC from being powered down, I get no sound at all through my realtek HD sound card. Not from any sources, mp3s, line in, web videos, etc.

Also when this is happening, when i play a flash youtube video, it stutters.

Nothing gets the sound back, not even disabling the sound card, etc.

So I then do a reboot of the PC and after the reboot everything works until i shut down the computer. The next day i turn it on and no sound. Reboot fixes it.

Anyone have this issue before?

*Edit, also wanted to add that i have updated to the latest Realtek driver off their website in hopes of fixing this issue with no luck. R2.70 dated 6/22/12

A:On bootup, no sound, stuttering flash video

Windows 8 has a different power down sequence than other Windows Operating Systems. When you power off, its not really powered off completely. Its in a sort of hibernation state. Because it doesn't do a "normal" boot with the BIOS this could be your problem.

There is an option to correct this. Give this a try and see if it fixes or helps the problem.
With Windows 8, “off” isn’t really off

Hey there. I'm not sure what the problem is, but since yesterday, my laptop's sound & video keeps lagging..the whole time.

Yesterday i was djing on the laptop through a mixer..and then the sound disorted, like the speaker had been blown..if it's blown would it still be playing audio though? and could that be the reason for the lagging/stuttering? (that it's blown maybe)

It happens in every player. windows media, vlc, quicktime..etc. Only installed dj software recently, but it was working perfectly for quite a while...until last night.

About a week ago I turned on my computer to find that the screen went blank after a certain point in the startup process (just before the desktop itself started loading). I called Dell technical support, the support agent determined the video drivers were at fault, and uninstalled and reinstalled them in Safe Mode, and the problem seemed to be resolved.

Shortly after getting off the phone with Dell I started up a game (Guild Wars 2), which told me my drivers were out of date. The video drivers the support agent had pulled from the Dell website were about three years old, so I went to the GeForce website and installed the 306.23 drivers. (For reference, I have two GeForce 9800 GT cards.) I began the installation, and halfway through the screen went blank, just like with the startup error. I let it sit for a while to see if the installation would complete, then rebooted manually. The computer restarted just fine.

Since then I have not had the blank screen problem, but my sound has been stuttering. How much it stutters fluctuates between "barely noticeable" and "occurs every two seconds", it seems to manifest most commonly in videos (both on my hard drive and online) but occurs with game audio and Windows sound effects as well. I have not seen any video lag accompanying the stuttering. I have uninstalled and reinstalled my video drivers again, this time without running into any issues, but that did not resolve it. I called Dell again, but they told me somet... Read more

A:Sound Stuttering After Video Driver Reinstallation

Can you post the model of your Dell? When you installed your two GeForce 9800 GT cards do you upgrade your power supply unit? If not I believe the psu that came with the dell is very much under powered for your graphics cards. I recommend at least a 80+ rated 750-900 watts psu. And under powered psu if you did not upgrade to a more efficient one is why you are having problems that you are experiencing. The minimum for each card (wattage) is 400 watts you have two. Having one I recommend at least 550watt since you have two cards I would highly recommend 750-900 watt psu. 400 watts minimum means it will do put it's pushing it if you just have 1 card.

HELP!

My computer is a pile of junk, or am I wrong? When I try to play video games such as Half:Life Counter-strike the video will slow down during gameplay and sort of 'stutter' like it will stop and then I'll end up in a spot where I should've been 20 or so seconds later.

--------------------

For example:

In Counter-strike there are guns and explosions and what-not. I'm running up to a guy firing my AK when all of a sudden my screen begins to freeze and plays in SLOW MOTION. My sound is also going in SLOW MOTION , hearing the shots fired very slowly. When this is all over 20 or so seconds later I'm on the ground dead and the video/sound is back up to rate and is working fine. About two minuets later this happens agian...stops...agian...stops...agian.. and so on..

--------------------

My sound can also get really choppy and won't play right during this. Gameplay is fine until about every 2 minutes this happens and it has always happened. When I first bought this computer it played CS fine... no problems at all, then I guess my stepdad did something to the computer maybe changed the drivers or something and it does this now. I really would like someone to help me on this. As I am completey boggled.

Anyone got any ideas? I'm not your average computer geek, so I'll need all the help I can get.


P.S: This also happens when I try play Nintendo games on my computer. The really old ones. I have emulators..ect

A:Stuttering video and sound during gameplay / music HELP!

Hello! Welcome to TechSpot

Judging by the specs:
Compaq Persario 5320 US
Intel Pentium 4 1.5GHz
512RAM
nVIDIA Vanta 16MB video card
Sound max on board sound
40GB HD
It appears to me that your comp is getting aged
for some of the games you like and the video 16mb
seems to be your bottle neck.
I'm certain it's been good to you just alittle outdated.
2 possible solution would be to upgrade the video card
to at least a 64mb or even better a 128mb.
The other is to consider a fresh machine (non-proprietary)
though I would try the video card Ugrade 1st.

hello,
 
I've been trying to look all over the web to see what could be the issue of my laptop randomly freezing. Ingame when i play League of Legends it happens frequently now where my Frames drop completely to the point where i cant see anything for a while, it is stuck on 1 frame. But i recently also started noticing some issues when watching a video on youtube where either the video would stop, and then play out as in hyperspeed, whilst the sound would normally continue.
 
I've been looking aswell on what might be the problem causing this and i checked my pc for malware/spyware/etc. and there was nothing on it (except for those damned tracker cookies). The temperature of my vents and cores are perfectly fine aswell which i checked with speedfan/GPU-Z. (i must add that i recently let my laptop get repaired and they replaced the vents, added new cooling paste and gave me a new C: drive). So dust can't be the issue since it has just been fully cleaned.
 
HOWEVER, i have been looking and seen some people write about running scf /scannow in CMD. This gave me the result that there were some files that could not be repaired. So i kept reading and tried to extract the Log into a Txt file so i could see for myself what was wrong. When i opened and looked through it i saw like 6-8 problems that could not be repaired, but i have no idea what to do or if im even on the right track.

Hey everyone. I installed a second video card to my system because I have a dual monitor setup running off one card (ATI 3850) and now I have an ATI 4670 running my projector.

It seems that when I play video off the second card (to my projector) it shows a slight stuttering in the video, but not the audio. These are files I know work properly, so it's not that.

When I plugged in the second card and fired up the machine, 7 automatically installed the drivers. Was this a bad idea? Should I uninstall them and do an manual install from drivers available in the setup from ATI's website?

I had to do some rearranging of the screens under the screen resolution menu, but it seemed ok until I played video off the second card.

Also, when I start the computer, ATI blacks my screens out for a few seconds and then comes back on, similar to what it does when I want to change the resolution of a screen. This is frustrating to watch every time I turn on the machine.

Anyone now what I can possible do to solve these problems? I never thought it would be so difficult to install a second video card and have it work properly! Thanks everyone.

A:Problems with sound when watching dvd, stuttering sound

Hmm well first of all Id make sure that you are experiencing this problem while watching dvds as well as online. The reason I say this is because if its just online it could be bandwidth and if its just the dvd, it could be the damaged media.

Assuming you are consistently having sound issues watching videos online and via dvd my first guess would be overheating.

Do you have the ability to play sound files without issues? Is the problem only with video?

Sometimes my computer will have this stuttering problem with video. It doesn't matter how much RAM I am using. I have an integrated chip, but it doesn't always do this, so there must be a problem somewhere. It goes away when I restart my computer, but not always. I tried updating my drivers, and using different programs, and neither worked.

Hi, first post on these forums and really looking for some help here.Basically my problem is that after a certain amount of time (1-2 hours maybe), my computer's video starts to stutter. I'll be watching a video and every half second to second the video will pause for a split second and then resume. From what I can see, audio is complete unaffected. The youtube audio works just fine even while the video stutters and playing music files is also fine. Additionally, even as I'm typing this post out, I can tell that the letters I am typing will pause as I'm typing them then appear, same with backspacing.Here are some computer specs if they are necessary:-Windows 7-Toshiba Qosmio x505-Intel i7 Q740 @ 1.73GHz (8 CPUs)-Memory 6144MB RAM-Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M approx total memory: 4048MBNot sure what else would be necessary, but ask for anything and hopefully I can provide it.

I use MediaPlayer Classic on WinXP SP2 with a 2130MHz Core 2 Duo and an nVidia Geforce 8800GTS. Everything worked fine for a couple of months, but recently I noticed videos starting to stutter -- the audio and video will sort of pause, only for half a second, but enough to irritate me. It happens 5-10 times a minute. If I install fraps, I can see the framerate drop during this time.

It happens with videos of all sorts -- DVDs, Divx video clips, WMV. I've checked my resources, thinking maybe something was going on, but it only shows 5-15% of my CPU being used when playing a DVD, which is normal. I'm using the latest video card drivers, and I'm not overclocked or anything. Games (2D and 3D) run perfectly fine. It's not the videos themselves, because I've tried a variety of different ones.

Is there something obvious I'm missing, like a hidden setting for vsync/deinterlacing/something like that?

Hi there!

Im at my wits end with my sound problem on my new pc. Having just bought the new pc, i have found that performing any other task while listening to music causes the music to irregularily stutter or skip, like a scratch on a cd

It happens when using i.m. or a web browser, even when typing (in fact most frequently when typing)

I have tried upgrading both the audio drivers and video drivers. I use a memory optimiser program, and so i know that the free ram is almost never below 60%, so im farely certain RAM isnt the problem. The problem occurs on everything, from itunes and windows media player, to the audio from youtube videos.

Hey,

I have the sound stutter problem when playing music, video and games. It is sometimes incorrectly referred to as a problem with windows media player. Any sound for me stutters every few seconds, sometimes its gone for a few hours and comes back. I have realtek drivers, the latest, and have tried old ones. Ive tried turning off exclusive mode and many other common tricks like changing quality etc.

Obviously I am looking for a fix but im afriad if i ask I will get nothing but all the home remedies that work for a while, or people think it works but the sound problem comes back. If someone had this problem and eliminated it I would love to hear how its done. However, I would like to also know the reason for the problem, does anyone know whats causing it? Maybe moderators or forum members that have seen this problem floating around. This is mainly to avoid the "Maybe your holding your phone to close" type responses from people who have not seen the problem before, that being said, any ideas are nice. This is obviously a windows 7 problem, maybe there is no good realtek drivers out yet, although i hear similar complaints about creative on w7 forums. does w7 handle sound differently. I'm afraid that this is actually a fundemental flaw in the operating system. Does anyone here have windows 7 rtm 64 bit with working sound??? If so do you have any unique sound settings/caching/memory settings?

A:does anyone actually have the Sound Stuttering fix?

Hi folks,

Really hope someone can help me with this problem as it's driving me crazy.

The sound from my card is stuttering badly when I'm playing games etc. It appears to stutter badly when say FMV is playing or similair.

Here's my specs:

PIII 866
256Mb Ram PC133
SBlaster 128 PCI
32Mb PCI Riva TNT2 Graphics Card
50x CDROM
Win 2000
20Gb HD 5400rpm

I've eliminated the CDROM as the source of the problem, as when solely reading from the HD the problem still occurs.

Could the problem be being caused by the HD? Do I need a faster one?

Any help to solve this problem would be most appreciated.

Many Thanks,

Peaker.

A:stuttering sound

It sounds like you have too much running it the background and it is choking the system while you are multi-tasking. It is normal to get a hiccup in sound while reading a CD as the ATAPI interrupt halts the entire system temporarily, but not like you are describing. You can resolve your issues through two means:

a) Uninstall unnecessary and superfluous software that you don't use or arn't really required for proper operation, check the bottom right hand corner and see how many programs you have running in the tray, if there are lots then you should do some cleansing. To uninstall in Windows XP go to Start, click on Control Panel, now click on "Add / Remove Programs". To uninstall in Windows Vista go to Start, click on Control Panel, now click on "Programs and Features".

b) You could disable some software from starting up with Windows instead of getting rid of it completely by going to Start, clicking on Run (or holding down the Windows Key on the keyboard and pressing R) and typing "msconfig" without the ". On the second to last tab labled "Startup" you can untick the entries to stop them from starting with Windows, make sure you don't disable anything critical though!

c) Reinstall Windows with a fresh copy and rid yourself of the OEM c*ap that comes with most PCs.

Hopefully you should be able to get the amount of background processes down by removing unneeded software, you can check how many processes are runnin... Read more

Now let me start from the beginning. For the past 5 years I have been using the same 80G HD without problems, but lately it has just been getting full and staying full so i purchased a new Samsung 320G drive. Since i only have 1 sata cable i took my old drive out (didnt format it) then put the new one in and installed windows vista 32 bit. (same as old drive) Got it running and started installing drivers including sound card and video card. After finishing this I transferred files off my my external drive over to this new drive then once finished started playing a video game (world of warcraft) and noticed stuttering in audio and visual. I spent several hours trying to fix this and came to the conclusion it had to be the HDD since my old one this problem wasnt accuring.

So I took this drive out, put my old one back in and of course no problems. No audio or video issues so i figured id just reformat and just start from scatch with the old drive. So once finished i went through my norm and started installing drivers... then boom its doing it again. so now its not a HDD issue and I once again have the new Samsung drive in.

Through trial and error I have come to the conclusion that the issue does not begin until I install my graphics drivers. Geforce 9800 GT. I have tried the newest and oldest drivers to no prevail, but again I had these drivers working on the old HDD before reformatting that drive.

A:Audio and video stuttering!!

CAUTION: I offer advanced settings!
It sounds like an IRQ conflict.

When hardware blocks shared IRQ resources,
bus mastering is supposed to take care of that.

On a desktop station, the answer is easy... assign
a different address or use another PCI slot.

With a laptop, that's another story.

You can still force IRQ per device, though,
if you install the STANDARD HAL.

When doing a "repair install", hit F5.
Then, select "Standard 486", rather than ASPI,
or whatever the default.

You WILL lose APM, so you'll have to manually
turn off your machine after logging off or "shutting down".

But it allows you to force devices to use IRQ's you want to.
Otherwise, Windows overrides the CMOS settings.

A:video playback stuttering

When you say processor usage shoots up to 100% what program is using up all the CPU power? What kind fo videos are you playing avi, mpeg, H.264? Legal or illegal?

First thought would be to check kaspersky and check to make sure it doesn't have an idol scan setting. But I would think that with your system it should be able to do both with no problems at all?

Greetings--I hope someone can help me with this; it's puzzled everyone I've talked to. For the past month or two, video performance on a couple of games we play has gotten very poor--instead of moving smoothly, things seem to start and stop. The games involved are Zuma Deluxe and Luxor. Luxor even stopped running altogether; just a black screen. Neither game is very graphically intense. Other games that are more demanding, like Prince of Persia Sands of Time and Indiana Jones & The Emperor's Tomb, seem to run fine. DVDs play fine. Specs are: MSI mobo (KT4AV), AMD Athlon XP 1800 chip, 768 MB RAM, Windows XP SP2, and an ATI Radeon 8500 AGP w/ 128 MB RAM. I swapped the ATI card for an nVidia GeForce 4, and the problem has eased somewhat, but is definitely still there. Device Mgr shows no hardware or memory conflicts. Has anyone else run into this, or have any suggestions on what to do? Thanks! Keith

Hi all,

I have a dell dimension 2350, celeron 1.7 ghz, 1gb ram, 57 gb hd, windows xp that I inherited from my daughter. She had it since 2002 and was on every social site known to mankind and downloaded everything and anything from her friends until it just slowed to a stop from all the malware she got it infected with. I cleaned it as best I could with my limited knowledge (Iobit Advanced Systemcare, Spybot SD, Avast) and suspect it might still be loaded with all kinds of spyware, adware, etc.

It originally only had 128 mb of ram and was sooooo slow (up to 2 minutes to close a window). It would not boot scan with Avast, would not install AVG ("a needed file is unavailable") and did not improve or find anything with Avira. So, I increased the virtual memory to 4gb with little results. I then upgraded the ram to 1gb and returned the virtual memory to its original 2 gb max, updated windows (including sp3), reinstalled Avast and was able to boot scan. Nothing found, but it is now much, much faster on all but the DVD player and streaming video. On one DVD, the DVD player (using WMP) does not even load the DVD movie but goes to the interactive internet options instead with no way of loading the movie. Search and Explorer don't work either. Explorer does not load and Search gets stuck ("not responding") after hitting Enter on a search.

Also noticed that when DVD is running, I have plenty of RAM (60% or better free according to FreeRAM XP Pro) but CPU use... Read more

A:audio/video is stuttering

Stuttering of audio/video...is probably not indicative of a malware problem. I will restore your log, if there is any indcation in your responses that your situation should be treated as a malware case. HJT logs are not permitted in the XP forum, such logs are malware tools and are handled in one of our malware forums.

Start/Run...type chkdks /r and hit Enter. Type Y in response to onscreen query and hit Enter. Reboot the system...the command will execute and the system will boot into XP when command has finished running.

Upon reboot of the system...defrag the system partition.

FWIW: 512MB is not an overwhelming amount to handle all system tasks. How large is your pagefile and is Windows managing it?

the problem i am having is this, any AVI (Weather it be divx or whatever), and mp3 i play on my computer has weird split second pauses or stuters through it. It doesn't do it 100% of the time. About once or twice every 5 minutes.

I am running Win Pro x64, but i have the latest x64 nforce drivers for all hardware. When i upgraded, i originally bought a Gigabyte nforce4 board (basically the equivalent of what i have now) and it was doing the exact same thing, thats why i swapped it for the MSI!

So i'm leaning toward it being a software issue. I've tried different codec packs (not that they should effect mp3 playback)

I've tried different ram.

I've scoured the net for ppl having the same problem, there is ppl having similar problems but no one having an identical problem.

I'm pretty sure the same prob was happening in windows 32 bit when i had it on aswell but i'm not 100% on that.

any help would be GREATLY appreciated. really want to get this thing figured out as i'm really keen on music, and there's nothing worse than having a favourite song stutter on you!

In VLC media player, I get regular short skips and serious artefacts appearing every 20-30 seconds or so, like this:

All my drivers, including video and on-board AC97 sound are up to date. It's a dual boot system, and when playing videos using the same programs in WindowsXP I don't experience these problems. Any ideas?

I have a real problem with audio and video stuttering badly on my computer. I am running Windows 7 and have run malware and virus scans on it, but they don't seem to help. The problem started shortly after I moved my computer from the basement because of some flooding. I don't have direct access to a hard wired internet hook up so I am using a Trendnet 54 Mbps wireless G USB adapter as my internet connection. The stuttering with all music players and when I am streaming from the internet. My mouse is also very jerky on the screen at times. Could the way I'm accessing the internet be causing the problems, or is it just a coincidence that the problems started when I moved my computer? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Its getting a bit annoying, I have only recently done a fresh install and re installed drivers. Only a month ago my RAM was faulty I did a memtest and I sent it back and got replacement. That issue is fine now. Now its just this audio..

So I've disabled all sound devices except the one that works. Closed any THX programs or anything like that. set my speakers to headphones and still no change. It happens with videos and games, everything really. I don't notice a stutter in the video side of things.

Any help would be much appreciated! DXDiag attached.

Hi, i just got a new pc and im having sound problems; basically every so often the sound sort of lags out and goes stuttery for about 1 to 5 seconds then resumes as normal. On the performance monitor cpu usage spikes up to 50-60% for the duration.

-Using logitech Z-10 speakers, got the latest drivers, and the problem occurs when im using different speakers also

-Running vistax64 on a pretty high-end pc, so really i shouldnt be running out of resources just to play sound.

-Bought a sound card, hoping to fix the problem, but its the same whether i use onboard sound or the card.

-The problem occurs in all applications, not just WM player

I think the problem is some kind of issue with data transfer and processing within the pc (whether its hard or software based i dont know). It appears to be only sound that displays lag/slowdown symptoms.

I tried sticking some music onto a flash drive and playing it from there, but again it stuttered so im guessing its not a hard drive issue.

Im really running out of ideas, so any help would be vastly appreciated

Sounds like a driver issue. What sound card and what on-board audio program are you using? There have been issues with Vista and or 64bit.

Recently, graphics have been stuttering. Sound stutters too, but I'm pretty sure the sound only stutters, clicks, pops and slurs when the graphics are lagging. I cannot pinpoint the source of the problem.
I put thermal paste on my cpu today and brought my temperatures down from 77C to 57C.
Still same problem so doesn't appear to be from overheating.
These problems are across the board from mp3s to video to gaming. Also, it happens on all media players. Sometimes if I load a webpage while music is playing, it'll slowdown the music and make it stutter.

This problem happens even with no other background things running. Directx tests, everything stutters to different extents. Even the small white box in the directdraw test isn't smooth and goes slow, fast, slow fast. In between direct x tests, parts of my taskbar temporarily vanish and then come back, suggesting a lot of cpu power or memory is being used. Is there a good program to test if my installed ram has become faulty?
My system is XP2000+, 768ram, and 9800pro 128mb.

I also noticed that cpu usage goes straight from single digits to 100% when dxdiag starts, and it goes to 100% when quake 3 starts.
 

A:Graphic and sound stuttering

i would think its the 768 ram holding you back.

I would try running memtest once and see what it tells ya.

Also, look in either the registery or msconfig and see if theres anything starting that you don't recognize.

Hi - I'm new here, but what a great forum.
Heres hoping someone can help........

I have a Toshiba laptop with vista and the sound has finally given up. Its always been a bit clicky, but recently its got to the point where I can't listen to the media centre or use the i-player or youtube etc. It just stutters and seems to run slow. At first I thought it was my internet connection but now the media player does it, I'm thinking its the laptop. Its also doing the stutter when I just click on enter or back.

I have read on google that it may be the drivers for the realtek audio, but when I go to 'update driver' it says windows has detected the most up to date driver is installed.

If I need a new driver where do I get it ? and how do I install it ? I'm a real novice at all this !!

Please help.......

Download to your computer then go to device manager and update the driver again, but tell it to search your computer, it will ask you where point it to the downloaded file.

Hi,

When my system starts up the start-up sound has gone & the first time the next system sound is generated [i.e. a click when you start exporer] this repeats continuously..... like a dripping tap.

Naturally this is very annoying and inhibits the playing of all audio/video.

My hardware configuration hasn't changed in a year and everything is [was] working fine.

When I reinstall - it works fine. It looks like it's something that's come off the net, after the third/fourth re-start [i.e. system restarts after installing software after reinstall] it appears yet again.

I connect through a cable modem and have anti-virus/firewall software. I don't have a router at the minute - but didn't experience this problem when I did.

Has anyone experienced this before? Is it a windows error/virus? And..... most importantly of all.... how do I fix it?

Hi all,

I have 2 XP machines, both dells, 1 a laptop (inspiron m140) the other a desktop (dimension b110) that distort all sounds playing if the computers are running or loading anything. It doesn't matter if it's music or a video saved to the machine or if it's something I'm streaming, it all gets distorted. It's to the point where I can't listen to music at all anymore without it stuttering constantly. I don't think it's a hardware issue as both machines didn't always do this and I've checked and updated the drivers. I believe this may be some reaction to a setting I've affected, but can't be sure.

When is the last time you did a disk Defrag? it sounds as though there is a great deal of disk activity when you do anything, and that could be why your sound is getting distorted. You can check to see if it needs it. It will tell you whether or not it needs a defrag.

I think it may have something to do with Java. Getting a lot of bad jumpy performance with my computer. Videos at Gamespot and Youtube stutter terribly. NEVER had this problem before.

A:Video stuttering and buggy performance.

That is a possibility. I have also seen issues with Flash 10.1.
The easiest way to check would be dependent on when the upgrade took place.

A system restore to a time prior should help to pinpoint the cause.

Since this morning when I turned on my pc I have been experiencing some strange issues and wondered if anyone had any advice or suggestions.

When moving the mouse around in a figure of eight with nothing open, every few seconds it skips for about 1/10th second. This is a brand new issue, but I was also having trouble with my wireless internet speed last night, for which I use a usb netgear wna1100 stick.

It seems my pc is dieing in some way but I'm unsure how to identify whats causing the problem as I don't have lots of spare bits to put in.

Things I've tried so far:
Checked mobo + graphics card temps, both ~40-50C idle.
Malware Bytes found nothing
Full AVG scan found nothing
SeaTools hard drive scan found nothing

This leaves me to suspect a hardware fault somewhere else.

My system specs:
Windows 7 64-Bit Home Edition
Sapphire Radeon 4870 2GB
AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400+
Gigabyte M57SLI-S4
Microsoft Sidewinder Mouse

The stuttering is fairly random, but always present and it never goes for longer than about 10 seconds without doing it.

Any ideas? Dieing motherboard or HD? How can i tell without replacing them?

A:Video/Audio Stuttering issue

What program are you using for video? How many other processes are running? Have you tried other media players? Is the stuttering happening when you're viewing or listening on the Internet or when you listen/view files on your hard drive? If you're streaming stuff from online, your Internet connection could be the issue. A lot of network traffic will cause a lot of buffering and stuttering like that.

Hello, About a week ago, I began having problems with my audio and video. When I would watch a video on youtube or play a song from Media Player or iTunes, it would momentarily pause every second. Obviously this is a frustrating problem. Also, my mouse and keyboard stutter at this same interval. The letters I type do get typed out but they have to catch up so to speak where they don't get typed out as soon as I press them. This all happens as soon as I start my system and the timing never changes; the stutter occurs every second- I've even timed it out to be one stutter per second. I did a system restore to an earlier time and nothing improved- I checked for updates, and checked to make sure that my ATA/ATAPI Devices were in DMA Mode at the suggestion of another forum where a person with similar problems solved theirs. Here is the procedure: http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/device/storage/IDE-DMA.mspxBut this didn't do anything for me either. I've run multiple MBAM scans, my other virus program (NOD 32) and Spybot, but nothing came up. The only other thing I can think of is that whenever I start up my computer, the black screen at the beginning says that it can't detect an AC power source. I'm assuming that this means that my battery is dead (I have a laptop). If the power cord gets unplugged, even if for a second, the entire computer just dies.

I cant recall the moment when the stutter happened the first time and why, but its happened after my PSU started to behave in a weird manner, its vent making an upsetting noise.It somehow stops when the PC is under heavy load, in a movie or a game, and it starts again when its idling.Its not a squal or whine, but more of a buzzing noise ,something like this .This started when i moved the pc and the desk in another place in the room.

So please do help me, I can provide more information, just ask; i'm doing fine with computers but those 2 problems didnt happen to me before so i don't know how to fix them.

A:Audio&Video Stuttering on my homemade PC

Your PSU is failing, this can be caused by various things, such as a failing fan, or being choked with dust and fluff. This causes erratic behaviour, because the power to the video card fluctuates. You will need to replace the Power Supply Unit, and preferably with one that can supply a bit more power. The card you are using uses roughly 200 Watts under load. Any other equipment you are using also draws power, so you may be on or above the limit for that power supply.

This playback does improve as the screen size of the player is reduced.

A:Video Stuttering in media center

I suspect it may be something you have installed recently that may be causing this particular problem.

Review anything you have installed recently that may be related to video (eg codecs, dvd player firmware etc)

Dear all,I've seen how helpful this community seems to be while trying to solve this problem and thought I'd give it a try. I've tried almost everything within my means to solve the above problem, and have got nowhere.Problem:In 3D games/apps and some streaming video (Steam game trailers, Youtube) I am getting a stutter for just a second. It happens continuously at the same intervals I think. In Bad Company 2 it is very noticeable, almost like I've lost a frame or something. In Fallout 3, it's terrible especially in large open areas, where the stutter is constant. It was hardly noticeable in Half Life 2 + episodes, but was defo there, making me think that the newer, more demanding games are exposing this. The system was absolutely fine only a couple of months back and I had no problems with the above - this seems to have started without any reason.My specs:Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 (I have a small AI overclock on this through my MB but only by about 5%)4Gb DDR2 RAM (Not overclocked in any way)500Gb SATA 2 HDATi Radeon HD4870Asus P5N-E SLI motherboard700W Arctic PSUWhat I have tried:I have scoured the internet looking for solutions to this problem that has sprung up and have found many posts but al with different solutions if any at all.

Hi All,A few days ago my computer slowed right down while starting up and pretty much ground to a halt.I have since ran a virus scan in safe mode, search and destroyed FREQUENTLY reccurring spyware, and ran a chkdsk.The computer itself is certainly running better, but now any time I play a video or music file, its stops and starts perpetually, preventing smooth playback, which is incredibly frustrating!Im comfortable when using computers but a novice in relation their workings - could anyone give me some advice in relation to what may be the problem with my compuuter? and how I could go about resolving the problems?RegardsModerator Edit: Moved topic to more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

A:Stuttering Video And Music Playback

It's possible that you haven't removed all remnants of the spywares you said you found. You should run a few more scans, this time add a few different scan programs to your arsenal.

What are all the programs you use to scan for viruses, trojans, malware, etc,?

Greetings - I'm at my wits end.
Video stuttering is making ALL games unplayable.
-----------
XPS Gen 4
3.2 Ghz
1 GB ram
Radeon X850
or
Radeon 1800XT
Catalyst 6.3 drivers
Windows XP sp2
-----------

Tests thus far:
RAM
Ran memtest for 8 hours - no errors

Ran Prime95
1024k passed
8k passed
896 passed

no errors

VIDEO CARD
I've swapped out video cards as a test.
Exact same stuttering using the X1800 as when using the X850.

Other than this hitching and stuttering during gameplay, the system is generally clean and stable otherwise. Virus free. Adware free.
Running updated Norton.
Sound is working fine.

Sure, play my Turbo Tax just fine, but just not F.E.A.R.
Bad Computer!

-----------

Finally some examples.
The stuttering occurs (to a greater or lesser degree) when playing all games: We get stuttering scrolling issues in the Sims 2 and The Movies, to intermittent freezes in sports games like Alpine Skiing 2006.

F.E.A.R gets high frame rates (as you would expect from the x1800) when doing the performance test... however as soon as you begin gameplay you get stutters and hangs... sometimes lasting a split second and sometimes SEVERAL seconds or more.
Arrrrrgggghhh.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

I recently put together a HTPC out of some old parts, but when I try to stream videos from Hulu, Neftlix, and the likes, I get very poor performance. Netflix is watchable, with only occasional freezing, but the audio is slightly off sink from the video. Hulu on the other hand is extremely slow, and in full screen the video becomes a slideshow. Through the task manager, I can see that while streaming from Netflix I get around 60-70% CPU usage, while from Hulu I get a flat out 100%. I have installed available updates, including the most recent nVidia drivers, and flash 10.1, which is supposed to have GPU acceleration. Neither of those helped in the slightest bit.

Here are the specs:

Commell LV-670 ITX motherboard
Celeron 2.6
1 Gb DDR
GeForce 8400gs
Windows Server 2008

I know this is not a very powerful system, but it handles DVDs relatively smoothly, though there is still high CPU usage with them. I have tried multiple browsers as well, and have noticed no difference between them.

Any ideas on how to get GPU accelerated flash working, or how to improve streaming performance in general?

Thanks,

-TC
 

A:Video Streaming Stuttering/Freezing

sounds more like a network issue than anything... check for conflicts and update network drivers if necessary. i don't understand why CPU usage is so high but perhaps a network protocol or service is hogging res? download process explorer to get a better picture of what's going on why the streaming is running.

I recently purchased a nice LG Blu-Ray player with built-in wi-fi.

What I really like is that I can stream avi videos from my computer but the stream is inconsistent. Most of the time the video will begin stuttering, then gradually it will smooth out over about 10-15 minutes. (The video quality is fine.)
)
It's a little issue, but I was wondering if there was anything I could do to prevent this. The wi-fi is through an ATT U-verse router that I believe is 802.11G.

Any suggestions?
Thanks,
JTN
 

A:stuttering streaming video from Blu-Ray player

I could be wrong, one thing that comes to mind is a buffering problem. Have you tried using an application that will give you real-time bandwidth readings? That way you can see if a slowed internet connection or bandwidth loss is the culprit.
