Sound Stuttering on Audio CDs

Q: Sound Stuttering on Audio CDs

Two drives, E: & F:. F works fine.

E: stutters continuously when playing an audio CD. There is no problem with data, .MP3 etc, graphics/photos, only with audio CDs.

Device Manager tells me the drivers are up-to-date. Rebooting doesn't help.

Drive is a TSST CDDVDW SH-S223C ATA. Sound is on-board.

[Windows 7 Professional 64-bit, 4GB RAM]

Any ideas?

A: Sound Stuttering on Audio CDs

Do you have another DVD drive you can swap in to see if the issue disappears?

Have you done a system restore to a date before the problem began to see if it disappears?

Any recent software additions or changes in configuration?

DVD drives are commodities now. I don't know how long they can be expected to last, but I understand your reluctance to assume it is a bad drive.

Any chance you were multi-tasking at the time and putting a good load on the processor while playing the CD?

Alright, I've got some weird problems. First of all, I'll describe my system:

Intel Extreme Series D975XBX2 Motherboard
Q6600 Quad Core 2.4 GHz Processor
4GB DDR2 Corsair RAM
256 MB DDR3 8600GT Graphics Card
Vista 64 bit OS

Here is the problem(s) I am having:

1) Audio stutters every 30 seconds or so for about 3-4 seconds.
- I've tried updating BIOS, but I get the same "Internal Error" type message everytime, even though it's the correct version that's supposed to be compatible with Vista 64.
- I've tried updating the audio drivers. The only driver that worked was the version that's about 2 releases old because the newer versions all had random errors and didn't work with Vista (even though they said they were supposed to).
- I thought if I turned off some advanced audio processing features it would fix the problem, but I can't get Intel Audio Studio installed because it says "This is not the correct driver for this sysetem" even though it IS.

2) BIOS refuses to update, saying "There is an internal error" or something along those lines. I looked up that error message in Intel's readme and it said it's due to a lack of hard drive space--but I have 450 GB free!
- An interesting thing I've noted during boot is that it says "No hard drive is detected!" when going through it's RAID check. I'm not set up for RAID, so I'm not even sure why it does this check. But, I think this could be causing the BIOS update error-... Read more

Hello,
I have this internal sound card in my system which more or less works as expected. However, there seem to be a few programs where the audio is stuttering/crackling. One is the PPSSPP emulator, another one is Beepola cross-tracker; I suppose there might be more of them which I haven't found yet.
Now I've noticed a weird pattern in that with both of these programs, the sound only comes out distorted if there's NO hard disk activity. If say I try to unzip a large archive, copy some files or simply view the properties of a folder with lots of files/subfolders, the audio becomes OK as long as the hdd is busy.
Here's why I think it must be sound card related: I've been using an 'external' SB Live card until recently and never had this problem, at least I know for a fact that Beepola used to work just fine all the time (regarding PPSSPP, I haven't tried it with SB Live but from the fact that the stuttering is similarly alleviated when the hdd is active I assume it has to be the same issue). It can't be CPU either I believe because taskbar shows minimal activity in both cases.
The PC is rather old: ASUS P5Q3 motherboard, Intel Core 2, Windows XP. Realtek drivers are of version 5.10.0.5859 downloaded from ASUS, so it's not the latest version but the latest one has this issue as well.
Some things I've tried:
- Measuring latency with DPC Latency Checker: didn't show anything suspicious, with mostly low values of 5-25 in the green

Problem description: Something is seriously going wrong with my computer. I've been using Ableton Live (A digital audio workstation for creating music), and usually I have absolutely no problems whatsoever. However, I decided to look through some old songs that had VST plugins I uninstalled, and when I started doing this the audio start to slow down intensely. I'm running all audio on the DAW through a Line 6 UX2. So, I decide to restart my computer. However, it wouldn't turn on at all. After about an hour of poking around inside the computer, airing it out and cleaning the dust, it finally miraculously turns on. However, now the audio problem has spread to my other soundcard, an HTO Striker Omega. Whenever I watch a video or listen to something, if I do a task that requires a remote amount of processing power, everything slows down and gets extremely choppy, starts crackling or popping, or the sound stutters. This happens on Winamp, VLC, and any other program that uses sound. Seriously, since today I can't listen to a song in Winamp without hearing stuttering if I change tabs in Firefox. It especially happens when I'm listening to something and I click on things in the control panel. Also, Ableton has become completely unusable. I can't listen to anything without hearing about 5 seconds worth of noise for every 1 second of music. It's absolutely frustrating, and I need to fix this soon because I have some incredibly urgent projects I need t... Read more

My laptop originally had Windows 8.1. I upgraded to windows 10 and the audio was working perfectly for a while until it started stuttering and also playing sound on both speakers and headphones at the same time. Even my audio levels keep fluctuating. I've tried every possible solution online but I can't seem to get it to work properly. I even resolved to installing my OS afresh, I deleted everything but still the same problem exists. Now my "High Definition Audio Device" is showing a yellow exclamation mark, it didn't show that before. Please help, I'm frustrated now.

hey guys,

i just bought a new M-Audio Audiophile 2496 soundcard to enjoy great sound in a foobar2000 + flac combination.

i've successfully installed the Vista 32bit drivers in compatibility mode and everything worked fine until then.

after starting to listen to music, i've experienced that from time to time (doesn't matter if i do something with the PC or just leave it there only playing music) the sound starts hanging (and it sounds like stuttering) for 1-3 seconds. then it comes back to normal...and a few minutes later it happens again. it's VERY annoying...

tried playing with WMP (wasn't happy about it) but the same happens.
tried vista 64bit drivers but couldn't install them. tried old Windows XP SP2 drivers, installed fine but no sound.

am i the only one who has this issue? did i buy a broken soundcard?

Hi,

I'm having problems with my sound, i am getting a stuttering sound more and more frequently when watching videos online/dvds.

I have tried going into the device manager and updating my drivers in the sound section, but apparently they are up-to-date. Really don't know what to do next!

I have a Toshiba laptop, satellite series. I've had no joy on that website with support. I am using Windows 7.

Any ideas?!

Thanks!
 

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?

Started happening recently. A couple months back I installed the Realtek drivers with the HD Audio manager and a couple week ago it started getting fairly bad especially when I was Skyping and watching Youtube. I reinstalled the drivers and this time it didn't install the audio manager and it got somewhat better. Now it just does it when I have multiple tabs open or on Netflix for the first 10 seconds or so. What is causing this and how can I fix it? It started doing it on Spotify just now and it's also been doing it when I record gameplay of NES ROMs on Bandicam. Very annoying. Also, I'm hooked up to the TV through HDMI at pretty much any given time, don't know if that helps.

The Spotify thing may have been because I had two tabs open and each had a YouTube video on pause.

A:Audio stuttering...

There are many things that can cause this. There is no "one fix" for the problem. Wi-Fi is a known cause. Video and Sound drivers are another. A bad power supply can contribute to it, etc.

Too many applications/tabs open can contribute.

Sound is on a shared IRQ (Interrupt) with a higher priority device. The higher priority device can cause momentary pauses in the sound that can sound like stuttering.

The Realtek drivers should be used and the Realtek HD Audio Manager is not the cause.

Take one thing at a time and see if you can isolate what is causing it. First step, be off line and try to play a known good sound file on the PC and see if it stutters. If not then add in the wi-fi and see if it stutters, etc.

Hi, im having a problem with my audio...

After every 30 seconds or so, the audio will cut out for like a split second and then continue playing, like a kind of stutter.

This is what diagnosis I have done so far:

-It does it using all types of media players (Winamp, Media Player etc)
-It does it playing all types of audio (Midi, Mp3, etc)
-When i restart my computer, it will fix itself up and WONT stutter, but this only lasts for a period of time, say 30 mins before the problem comes back (i dont know the method behind it)
-It is not a hardware / soundcard issue as I have tried multiple soundcards and speakers.

Any suggestions?

Could it be a virus of some variety?

i would say 99% sure that its not a virus.. try uninstalling all sound drivers and reinstalling, make sure in the bios onboard audio is disabled. if that doesnt work... theres always a trusty format that is possible

Hi all, I've had a very weird problem over the past month or so. My audio playback has developed a 'stutter.' It happens pretty frequently, a few times a minute, and it seems only to happen to music playback, not to games or movies. It sometimes skips in different places during tracks; sometimes it will skip in one place and sometimes it will play through the same place just fine. Also, I noticed that when I burn a cd there will be skips in it sometimes. Let me know if a HJT log or anything of that sort would be helpful.

System specs:
AMD Athlon 64 x2 4600+
ATI X1800XT GPU
ECS KA3 MVP mobo with Realtek HD Audio
(2) 1gb sticks of RAM
(2) 160gb HDDs

This problem just stupifies me. I can run Solidworks all day or run Half life 2 at full tilt and the system doesn't even flinch, but with nothing else running my music playback skips. The HDDs are already on Ultra DMA 5. The drivers for the onboard sound are fresh. I can't think of anything else except to run some tests on the memory modules at boot to see if one of the sticks is faulty, please help me with some insight into this problem! Thanks a TON in advance!

I don't know if this will work but try unplugging your headphones, give the headset port on your computer the old nitendo blow. Then, before you plug your headphones back in again, unistall the headphones driver. ( Go to start | go to the Control Panel | Go to the option hardware and devices | then click on the device mananger | find your headphone software or the device on the list | right clik it then uninstall | restart your computer | plug your headphones in again and see if that works. ( If there is no driver for your headphone then this may not work it's worth a shot!)

Slow performance issues can often be due to overheating, so if the system is faster after it has been shutdown for a while and then restarted -- that would be especially suspect. To check for possible problems here, shutdown, open the case and blow out any accumulated dust. Then turn it
on and check to see that the fan is working. Sometimes it helps to physically clean the fan.

If a laptop, check to see that the vent is clear of dust and verify the fan is working. Temps and fan speed can usually be monitored with SpeedFan (except on Dell desktops), a free utility.

If it says PIO or even just DMA (rather than “ULTRA” DMA, first ensure "Use DMA if Available” is selected, then select the driver tab and uninstall the driver and reboot. Then check again.

Okay. When I am playing videos on youtube the sound stutters. It happens too when I am playing music in iTunes and also in VLC. How would I resolve this?

A:My audio is stuttering.

First step, make sure you are using the RealTek sound driver from the motherboard vendor. Many times non-vendor sound drivers either do not work or do not work correctly.

If its not a driver problem, go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click to highlight the RealTek entry and then LEFT click "Uninstall". DO NOT check the box to uninstall the drivers. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound. This fixes a lot of flakey problems.

BTW, I see you have Win 7 64 bit, but only have 4GB of RAM. The big thing with 64 bit OS is that it can address more than 4GB of memory, where the 32 bit OS cannot. Other than memory there is no need for the 64 bit OS.

Attached a screenshot of my specs.
 
I was watching a show on Netflix and the audio began to stutter about every five minutes, making a gross noise and making the viewing experience really frustrating. I thought it was a wi-fi issue and apparently didn't use sound for the next week because I forgot about it. This week I was using my home wi-fi network and realized it was not a wi-fi issue. I don't think it's entirely a sound issue, either. The entire system seems to stutter when the sound does, and it seems to happen particularly when I start a new process (eg. load a program while testing music).
 
Here is a list of everything that I tried:
 
1) restarting, duh
2) closing out of all other programs so I was only playing netflix or running iTunes
3) updating my iTunes because the update claimed to fix stuttering sound
4) uninstalling iTunes
5) making sure my driver was up to date
6) taking it to the IT people at school who "reinstalled the driver" and did nothing else
7) deleting the Ask search bar I accidentally installed with a Java update
8) disabling a bunch of startup processes to reduce the strain on my processor
9) ran malwarebytes and quarantined then deleted the issues it found
 
My theories:
 
1) some kind of virus or malware (I have no virus protection anymore)
2) some kind of unexplainable power surge when the processor needs to work harder

I've went to the audio properties within FL studio and played around with buffer settings , extending them as far as they will go , and turned on everything that says " turn this on as it may help your cpu ".

I own a Headroom Total Bithead USB headphone amp, and it's not working properly on Windows 7 Home Premium, (both 32 and 64 bit versions). I called headroom and they reported that there were similar problems using the amp when Windows Vista came out, but Microsoft subsequently updated USB drivers and the issue was fixed. All indications are that the problem has not been fixed for Windows 7 yet, both from my experience and according to Headroom.

What happens is that every few seconds to a minute the audio will stutter during audio playback of any kind.

I can pinpoint this problem to the Windows 7 operating system because 1. I'm listening to the exact same device on my Macbook right now with perfect playback, but it does not work when I try it on my newly built PC and 2. I used to have Windows 7 installed on my iMac, and the problem would occur in Windows 7 with the device, but not when I was running OSX.

It's a pain not being able to listen to music on my desktop, so I'm hoping someone can either offer a solution, or Microsoft can provide some feedback on the issue. Windows 7 is an otherwise great operating system, which is why I decided to build a pc for it, and not get another mac when my iMac died just out of warranty...!!

Thanks all.

I am having a similar issue. I have a Plantronics 777 Dolby Digital 5.1 headset that uses generic windows USB Audio for the SRS modular.

If I reboot its good...for about 5 minutes then goes from little scattered to just outright horrid. I have googled, reinstalled, uninstalled, etc etc and no avail. My question is could it had been the game client? Or just timing. Thing that sucks is I love these headphones/set but if I want the 5.1 to work I need to use the USB adapter. so anyone know if its just windows being stupid or what.

A cascade of problems....ending with audio that stutters/clicks/pops...and a boot-up that takes twice as long.

Info: 6 year-old Compaq/Presario with XP (sp2). 1 harddrive....1 CD/DVD........Did some research...

With the RATTV3 utility, Audio is suffering from excessive interrupts by the ATAPI.sys driver...which is the IDE channels.

In device management I find THREE (3! not 2!) PRImary IDE channels, and 3 Secondary IDE channels, and 3 Dual-PCI channels.

Any chance of fixing this?....What, exactly, are the anomolies?...Shouldn't there be only 2 of each IDE channels?

Appreciate any advice.

Hi,

Last night and today I noticed that with every YouTube video that I watch, somewhere in the video, is a one second sort of stutter of the audio. When I go back to that moment, I don't hear it. But it has the kind of sound of when a windows computer crashes, but only for one second, maybe less. The headset I am using is only 2 weeks old, and I don't think anything should be wrong with it.

Help is appreciated.

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.

Hi, I'm Locky,

I am usually a pretty competent computer user, and have never had to post on a forum for help, but I am by no means skilled, thus I came here seeking help. I'll give you as much detail as I can, I am very much in need of help.

I have been experiencing a problem the last few days with audio and pointer stuttering. As far as I know I haven't changed anything on my computer that may cause this but seemingly randomly this error has sprung up.

My audio glitches up at 10-20 second intervals, (sometimes even 2-3sec) and simultaneously my mouse stutters. I have tried updating drivers, and have googled for help but nothing has worked. This error occured around the same time internet shopping extensions were added to my google chrome without my permission, but I cannot recall which happened first.

Naturally I have run ASC and AVG as well as Malware bytes, basically all the anti-virus software I have, but this yielded no results.

I have looked in my services tray and discovered that vsmon.exe has a far higher CPU time value than I expect it to, but other than this I can't find anything unusual.

The stuttering has made using my computer frustrating, and it bothers me that a brand new laptop is wigging out. Prior to this error the only other problem I've had has been a random system crash which while scary, seemed to be fixed by a system restore, to this day I have no idea what caused it.

Any help will be greatly appreciated, I have no idea how to proceed.

Hello Forum people! I am having the same audio problem described in this thread:
Sound skipping/stuttering

I thought upgrading to Win 7 and or a RAM upgrade would fix it, but after some pertinent research, I'm not sure that will solve it at all. I haven't done it.

Before I play a DVD, for example, I disable or 'end process' on almost anything using RAM, and it still happens.

I did a factory-fresh re-install, and it still happens. I don't expect to solve it, now, just want to understand it. Is this a known issue with Vista?

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 with Vista Home Prem x32, 4 GB RAM, and the audio is IDT HD Codecs.

Whatever other info you need, let me know! Thanks!

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.

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?

I recently had my new ibm thinkpad replaced because of skipping audio. When I look at the performance monitor, cpu usage jumps up to 100% every time skipping occurs (it skips on all sound files, not just cds). However, now the brand new thinkpad is doing the exact same thing. It happens even when I run no other programs but media player. Is there some way to track down the process that is causing the skipping? Possibly some kind of driver conflict i guess..but how to tell which one? Any help is appreciated.

I have been experiencing stuttering both audio and video. This occurs after the computer has been running for two days (hibernating at night). For the first day it works perfectly, youtube, MPC, etc work flawlessly. Then towards the end of the second day, stuttering, with no apparent cause.

This stuttering occurs primarily when reloading the page in the browser, and starting a new video. Upon reloading there will be stutters for the first few seconds (accompanied by audio buzzing type feedback in tune with video stuttering).

I use chrome but it is not exclusive to that.

Graphics drivers are updated, issue persists.

Upon restarting the problem disappears, only to return next day.

Any suggestions (preferably software based, I am disabled, so cant go diving into the hardware)?

A:Audio/Visual Stuttering

Which browser are you experiencing this with ? Are you saying in a media player this occurs too ? Does not happen in Chrome.

Seems like either a possible electrical disturbance going on here. Also could be a hardware issue, PSU.

Not sure yet if it could be the video card. Have another monitor to try ? Say stuttering in audio, mean like a buzzing ?

It's especially frustrating as this is a new computer. I've gone through a bunch of articles to tweak XP for audio, but obviously, still won't do the trick.

Nforce4 MSI K8N SLI mobo


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!

if theres any more info you may need from me, plz ask.

A:stuttering audio files

MaMaMaMaxMax HeaHeaHeadroorooroom, yeah I vaguely recall. That could be a program or something taking cpu focus momentarily away from the media player. In other words, the stuttering may be a form of lag due to other things going on. So, ensure there is nothing, and I mean nothing else running, like antivirus, firewall, internet, open windows, any programs at all, and then try again playing a tune.

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.

Audio Controller: Audigy SB

For the past week or so, I've noticed random stuttering with the audio on my computer. It happens anywhere, KMplayer, foobar, youtube, ect. It happened mostly when I was loading stuff from Opera, so I thought maybe it might have been Opera memory leaks (checked and it was running at around 250,000). I know that's high but not high enough to stutter my audio as it's always like that. So, I checked using a latency checker, and I got results back saying that some of my drivers are goofing up and causing latency stutters. I disabled my Wireless N card driver, and the problem seemed to be fixed. So, I uninstalled/reinstalled those along with my audio drivers. Restarted. Everything seemed fine. Then they came back. Moving on, I used Process Explorer to see what was spiking that could be causing the stutter. Whenever it did happen, DPC or "Deferred Procedure Calls" along with "Hardware Interrupts" would spike from like nothing to around 6.0-8.0.

As I mentioned before, this happens randomly, I haven't been able to pinpoint one thing that causes it, but based on what I've found, I suspect my wireless card has decided to stop working properly. Do you guys agree or do you think it could be something else?

Hello, I recently had my laptops windows reinstalled from windows xp to windows 7 and had audio and video problems ever since. Whenever I turn on a video on a site like youtube or any streaming websites(for TV or watching movies) the audio and video stutters every few seconds. I don't have such a problem if I open a video saved on my computer. Tried quite a few things though none of them helped(obviously). Some laptop specs(don't know what kind of info you would need and don't really know much about laptops so copied dxdiag info): DxDiag.txt - Speedy Share - upload your files here If you need any more info just tell me. Thank you for all the help in advance. And sorry if I made too many mistakes in writing, English is not my mother tongue.

Hi,
I've got a problem with the mouse cursor and my sound. It started yesterday(I didn't really install any new hardware or software). First my sound started stuttering and choppin while watching some YouTube videos and that spread to everything else(games and applications). Rebooting temporarily fixed that. Today however my mouse cursor does the same thing. I had a look in the task manager and I didn't see anything suspicious, the cpu usage is average and the only thing taking up CPU is Firefox.
Anyone know what's going on?

After upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 10 my sound is stuttering/making 'electrical interference' noises.  I've been trying to solve this with the Windows Troubleshooter and various other fixes but in the end I ran the HP Support Assistant and it upgraded the drivers to IDT High Definition Audio which is what everyone seems to be complaining about anyway. It just so happened I was offline when I first tried it with the newly installed IDT drivers and it was perfect so I thought I had cured it but as soon as I went online the stuttering and interference returned even when playing audio files already on my computer. I'm baffled why this should make any difference but it means it still isn't cured.  Anyone any ideas please?

My audio (when playing CDs or MP3's on the computer) seems to be stuttering and skipping. I've googled this and found all sorts of results regarding overclocking or PCI Latency Timers and I have NO IDEA what these things mean or how to deal with them.

I've removed all AdWare and scanned for viruses - nothing. I've defragged the hard drive. I've checked on the sound card driver - that seems to be up to date (or at least the automatic driver search couldn't find anything better).

Any advice? I use this system for audio and video editing so it's a pretty vital issue.

I have developed a recent issue with Vista Ultimate 32Bit and using WMP 10 or other audio/video programs.

When listening to music (wma lossless) files located on a large USB Western Digital RAID 1 setup, or just videos on youtube or other sites, I am getting audio stuttering. Not all the time but, intermettently, and when I browse the Internet when listening to audio files I get the same thing, except the stuttering gets worse like the PC is not able to process all the instructions it is getting. Google Earth amakes it the worst when I pan the image around the screem the stuttering gets worse then gets better.

THis PC has been working fine until a month ago when this started happening. Anybody have any suggestions, I have read about SATA controllers being a suspect in other threads.

A:Stuttering Audio in Vista Ultimate

There's many different reasons that this could be occurring. In most cases this is because there aren't sufficient resources to perform all of the tasks that are running on your system. Why aren't there sufficient resources (when there were before)? Well, that's the hard part of figuring this problem out.

First, as a Windows installation becomes more mature (older and more customized), things are added to it. These things individually may not cause a noticeable problem, but added together they can significantly slow your system down. And this doesn't even consider if the "things" aren't cooperating - which will draw even more resources away from the the system.

To test for this, try playing the music from your hard drive without anything else attached. Also, terminate all running programs, and turn off as much stuff as you can in the System Tray (Notification Area next to the clock in the lower right corner of the screen)

If that works without stuttering, then start adding stuff - one thing at a time. Eventually you'll find that it starts stuttering. Then it's either the last thing that you added that's causing the stuttering, or it's the combination of all that you've added.

So, then try adding something else (a couple of running programs, for example) to see if adding anything will cause the stuttering. If that's the case, then it's just that the system has too much stuff running. If it doesn't... Read more

I recently performed a full reinstall of windows 7 after getting a registry error bsod that I was unable to fix. So far everything works perfectly except for the sound. I'm experiencing severe audio stuttering on almost all applications, both streamed and downloaded audio/video.

I run a 12 ft 3.8mm audio cable to my speaker set and use an hdmi cable to dual screen to my tv, but the tv doesn't play audio. I'm pretty sure that this isn't loss due to cable length, or connection, since I get it when I use my headphones directly to my tower.

I've tried updating my audio drivers but device manager says they are up to date, and since I don't have a sound card, my motherboard's company (Gigabyte) doesn't supply them. I updated Realtek but the issue remained.
The relevant audio drivers are: AMD High Definition Audio Device and Realtek High Defintion Audio

If anyone has any clue what the cause may be, I would be so grateful. The stuttering is driving me insane.

If you do a search on this forum section you will find many posts on stuttering. Unfortunately there is no "one fix" for this.
One issue is the sound is on a shared Interrupt (IRQ) with a higher priority device and the higher priority device may be "interrupting" the sound causing the stuttering. If this is the case, SOMETIMES, uninstalling the sound in the Device Manger then restarting Windows and Windows will put it on a different shared IRQ and fix or minimize the stuttering.

Other known causes are Wi-Fi, old video and sound drivers. As you have reinstalled, possibly you are using old driver versions?

HDMI audio is separate from regular PC audio. The HDMI audio is generated by a sound chip in the Video Card.

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.

Thanks

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 everyone,a year ago i bought and assembled PC components by myself and i was glad that everything worked well, smooth, audio&video in PC games and Movies were flawless, up untill recently when the audio and video start to stutter really bad, especially when Starting the PC,connecting or disconnecting from internet; thats when it spikes really bad something video and sound stuttering and freezing for seconds.
Here is a picture taken with the latency tester after i disconnected the internet.In normal use the stutter appears once at 10-20 minutes, sometimes more sometime less.

2GB DDR3 TEAMGROUP RAM

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.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1420 running Windows Vista 32 bit with SP2.

A few days ago, I noticed my hard drive was almost full. So, I ventured into my computer to determine what I could get rid of. I purged everything simple (multimedia), then did some program removal (lazy housekeeper). Then I ran CCleaner and Registry Mechanic to hopefully pickup any of the little bits my early spring cleaning may have left behind.

With it being late at night, I didn't have my volume up but noticed my mouse pointer acting a bid odd.

The next evening, I get home to do some browsing and the mouse problem is more clear, after a good nights sleep. Every second or so, the mouse stutters. More clearly, if you slowly drag the pointer accross the screen, the mouse moves, and every second or so, just for an instant it freezes. But, it obviously remembers where the pointer should be so it jumps suddenly after that brief moment to where the pointer should be. I can also see the progress spinning circle image on startup or when you start a new program has a noticable consistent hickup.

Now, it took another day for me to realize that the audio problem ties to this as well. To this point, I hadn't attempted to listed to any audio or play video. Once I did, I realized I was more confused than ever.

The audio has a stutter ever second or so right alongside the consistency with the mouse pointer. If you've ever noticed when a digital TV signal suddenly goes bad for a second and the audio sort of... Read more

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?

Dear HP Support Team! There are many discussions on this issue... Of course, some of them are solved!BUT, I'm sure, that a lot of people are experiencing the same problem as me..., namely, each time the GPU throttles (observed with GPU-Z and/or EVEREST and/or GPU Observer ? Sidebar Gadget), it causes a DPC latency spike (~ 60k as in my case, measured with DPC Latency Checker) which causes sound glitches (audio crackling, popping, stuttering), when I listen to a music, browsing the Internet (for example)!!! You can be sure, I'm not alone! So, my question is: why there is still no solution to this problem?! excepting the disable powermizer (for those, who use nVidia graphic card) or disabling Windows Aero!I have this problem more than two years since I bought my HP Compaq 8710p (GC102EA) with Windows Vista preinstalled, and now with Windows 7 Ultimate! Please, reply!!!Thx. P.S.:Here're some discussions to this subject:dv6-2064ca sound crackling once every 5 minutesCrackling Noisedv6853cl Crackling sound playing mutimedia with speakers or headphonesSound distorts, pops while surfing internet on dv9730usDV5-1050ei - popping and crackling sound while playing any musicYou can find more by searching to the forums "Notebook PC Sound and Audio"  and using the tags: "CRACKLING", "POPPING", "STUTTERING"...

Hi guys,

I hope this is in the right forum. I have been suffering from stuttering audio, from both audio on my pc and streaming from the net. I did all the usual tricks, checked for viruses/spyware, reinstalled drivers etc and I've (unintentionally) narrowed it down to hardware. I've done this by accidentally leaning on the casing, to the right hand side of the mouse pad. This actually allows the audio to continue playing without stutter and if the pressure is lifted the stutter returns immediately.

What I want to ask is whether it is easy enough to get into the machine itself, having looked around someone had done it previously. Secondly, what am I likely to find that is causing this problem?

Many thanks in advance.

For the last day (since April 1) I've noticed that there is a system-wide audio stutter. It doesn't matter if it's Youtube on Google Chrome or IE or music played via VLC media player, the song will stutter once for just a second then keep going. All the aforementioned software is in its latest state (except maybe VLC but I have no idea why that would cause a system-wide problem). Java and Flash are both as up to date as they can be.

I'm running Win 7 64-bit using Malware Bytes and Microsoft Security Essentials for keeping my laptop clean, both are up to date and have found nothing. I found another thread that seemed similar ( music stutters ) which suggested a “DPC Latency Checker” I tried it, and the checker says that my laptop is fine for streaming so it's not that.

On a whim I also tried a quick defrag and a bit of disk cleanup...just in case; didn't help, but figured I'd throw that in just to sum everything up.

So...Advice?

Addendum: The laptop itself is an HP Pavilion dv4, a check through my drivers says that everything audio related is up to date.

System restore has done nothing, neither has a reinstall of my sound card drivers. A list of all the processes that are normally running can be found lower in the thread for those interested. Disabling all non-Microsoft services has done nothing to fix the problem.

A:System-Wide Audio Stuttering

One thing I notice, from your System Spec's. You list Win 7 home 64 bit, but only list 3GB of RAM. With only 3GB of RAM you are not getting anything from the 64 bit version. The main thing with the 64 bit version is the ability to access more than 4GB of RAM. Looking at the memory list on the Crucial Memory site, 4GB is Maximum for this model.

You may want to upgrade to max. It won't get you in the 64 bit area, but max memory would be one place to start.

Other potential areas have probably been covered in other posts - this is one of those problems that there is no "one fix". Device drivers for the Video, Sound (use the Acer supplied sound driver, which is the preferred driver). One other trick that helps - sometimes - is to uninstall the sound in the device manager (but NOT the drivers) then restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound. As sound is always on a shared IRQ (Interrupt) with a higher priority device, and subject to interruptions or stuttering, this sometimes puts it on a different IRQ and can have a positive effect.

Hey Everyone,

First time posting here so be gentle. I am having difficulties with audio which has stemmed back for some time almost a year before i started buying new hardware to "correct" the problem. I have read over many posts about stuttering/laggy/jittery audio, but none seem to give me an answer. When i play Bioshock, Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour, or even Half Life have a static-clangy echoey sound to them. It is quite the disturbing sound to hear and i cant help but think of Michael Keaton in the movie White Noise, but worse sounding static... Anywho I cant simply exit out of the program (Bioshock for example) and restart the program because the sound remains the same. I recently upgraded my system, and my sound card choice from Creative X-FI (which also had the problem) to an ASUS XONAR DX. I had thought this was strictly a sound card issue at the time when I purchased the Xonar last week. I was wrong.

This cant just be a sound card issue can it? Could it be that my 500Watt PSU isnt enough for all my nice new equipment AND my sound card?

I dont have hardware acceleration available to me through my speaker setup btw.
I appreciate any/ALL support from you all.

Every day my computer seems to crash. Roughly every 24 hours, it ends up at a black screen and the monitor stops receiving video. The audio also seems to stutter. If I am playing music at that exact moment, the audio will stutter and repeat. I originally thought it might be a problem with my installation of Vista, but I've been considering other possibilities as well. Any help would be much appreciated.

Specs: Nvidia GeForce 9800 GT, Intel Core 2 Duo E8400, Soundblaster Audigy Card, Windows Vista SP1, GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3L/S3L Mobo, Corsair 2GB DDR2 800
 

A:Black screen, audio stuttering

I'll get some questions out of the way.

Do you have any sort of heat monitoring going? If so, does it indicate any spikes before you crash?

Are you doing something specific, or will it also just crash while idle?

When it crashes, are you running audio?

There could be a lot of reasons. Heat is a good possibility, as is an audio driver crash.

If you don't have any heat monitoring going, you can install coretemp or something similar, and start logging, then next time your computer crashes, you can pull down the log and see if it indicates any thermal spikes when it crashes.

Other thing you can try is just disable your sound card and see if it still crashes. Audio stuttering can be indicative of driver issues.

Hi,

Recently, the sound on my computer started stuttering, and sounding all scratchy. Everything stutters, except midi files, which don't play at all. I'm using an integrated sound card, on an Intel D865GBF motherboard.

Thanks for any help!

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.

Please help me solve my problem as its driving me crazy

Thanks in advance

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

I have Windows 98 and have onboard sound. ie a VIA AC97 chip. The problem is that the sound in some games is choppy and stuttering(Half Life works, Phantom Menace-Stutter!).
I have tried various drivers to no avail.
According to Device manager and System Info there are no conflicts (though I know they lie sometimes).
Any advice..? Apart from buying a real soundcard...
Thanks

It seems like this problem has been famous since 2007...

So I just bought a new laptop, HP Pavillion nv9925nr. Specs are AMD Turion64 x2. ram is at 4gigs ddr2 667mhz. Nvidia Geforice 7150m and a Conexant High Definition Audio card (all this is onboard... dur)

Anyway, my problem is that every minute or so the sound stutters, all my drivers are updated, got all the windows update thrown in there, and it still does the stutter thing every minute or so. Is there any solution to this problem to save my sanity? Thanks : D

A:Sound Stuttering

Hi TemperFire, welcome to the vista forums

No cure yet as far as I am Aware of...
Just the normal workaround

Right click the speaker icon in the tray select Playback Devices select your default output and on the enhancements tab Disable all enhancements.

Hopefully that should do the trick but if not try disabling all enhancements in the playback application (media player)

hope this helps

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.

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?

Please, do not provide detailed system specs. They will not help at all. OK, go ahead and provide detailed system specs.

The problem with your assessment of a serious flaw in Windows 7 - not all users report or experience the same problem. There are some issues with RealTek though. All of which can be addressed.

Could also turn out to be an I/O issue or even CPU spiking. Can't begin the analysis until we have...

In your case, a detailed model number or service tag will work.

I was messing around with some audio configurations the other night, basically trying to get things to sound 'louder'. Anyway, whatever I did I guess has made audio just about unlistenable. I don't want to fully restore my computer but is there a way I could just restore the audio settings? I think I've restored most settings for the audio but maybe I'm missing something.
 
I have a Lenovo laptop with "Realtek High Definition Audio" for the playback.
 
**edit: Seems to only be happening through iTunes! Just blasted some music through Youtube and the audio was fine.

A:Crackling, skipping, stuttering, lagging audio

Well, I searched around and it seems to be an issue with making sure the sound playback is at the same sampling rate as iTunes. So far so good. If anybody has the same issue I recommend making sure your iTunes sampling rate is at the same rate as the playback device settings.

Hey everyone,

My wife's computer has had a "skipping" problem for quite some time. I have been to the Malware forum and determined that the computer is cleaned - and they had me update windows and Java. I have run multiple virus scanners, spybot, adaware, have tried disconnecting wireless (i read somwhere that that could be it), checked memory, defragged, etc... basically everything i know how to do and i have not been able to remedy the situation. Basically whenever you run and audio or video file in any application (WMPlayer, Itunes, youtube, anything) it skips and stutters terribly. I think it really does it alot of times, it is just more noticable when you are listening / watching something continuous. The computer has plenty of available memory, is not maxed out in CPU usage or anything. Other than this problem, the computer seems to run flawlessly... I cant figure it out - if someone has time to help, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
