Laptop Sound & Video Lagging/Stuttering

Q: Laptop Sound & Video Lagging/Stuttering

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)

here's a video of what i mean (since it would be a lot easier to explain)

Problem with laptop Audio/Video lagging/stuttering - YouTube

When windows starts, the greeting sound also does it..overall all the audio and video does

Hope you guys can help out (the video might be quite loud so i'd suggest turning down your volume a bit, it recorded pretty loud)

Check your audio out cable. does it still sound distorted when you unplug the cable and use the laptop speakers?

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.

Hey guys.

My laptop is a TOSHIBA Satellite L775 (Windows 7) and for quite a while now Iíve been having Ďstutteringí problems with the sound. If Iím watching a youtube video (or listening to music files on my hard drive) occasionally the sound lags. It wasnít too much of a problem at first but itís happening quite often now and is incredibly annoying/worrying.

Iíve checked out a lot of forums and questions online regarding similar problems, so far I have disabled and replaced my sound driver (although there are like 5 NVIDIA sound drivers I did not have the option to uninstall), disabled a few programs/services using the msconfig (although I donít think its related to the processor or processes, my laptop has 4GB of RAM and an intel i5 processor, Iíve ran pretty intensive games on it in the past with no problems so canít see it lagging over music).

I tried downloading a new Ďatherosí network driver, I didnít uninstall the current one as Iím in the middle of revision and donít want to cut myself off from the internet by mistake. I simply downloaded the replacement driver and ran the install wizard for it, the problem still wasnít fixed.

It might be worth nothing that after I disabled a few programs to see if it was the RAM that the problem seemed to get worse, with massive hangs in the audio. The first time I remember seeing this was almost a year ago, I was playing Crysis 2 and the game/sound crashed. Occasionally after this the stuttering would occur whils... Read more

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?

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?

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

In most installations of Windows 10, Windows 8, and Windows 7, C: usually becomes D: and in Windows Vista, C: is usually still C:.

I have a weird, and infuriating problem.  When I connect my HP 350 G2 laptop to the internet with ethernet cable, everything works just fine. Streaming videos don't lag much and things work. But when I use the wireless card, this happens: Even though I get 5/5 bars, so the connection is strong...  The sound (and sometimes picture) has weird stuttering and freezing. It makes a buzzing sound. For example if I watch a video and someone says: "Let's go and get them", it could sound like this: "LetTRRRRRR's go and gTRRRRRRRRRet them". It happens every 20-60 seconds, roughly. Video playback on wireless is more stuttery otherwise too, compared to ethernet. I have tried to shut down programs and services on the background that I don't need, no help. This model uses the Realtek wireless card. I also installed the driver again, no help. My connection should be fast enough, 24mbit ADSL. All my drivers are the latest from HP site.  When I play the same streaming videos on my iPad, they work flawlessly. If anybody could point me to the right direction what to try next, I would be grateful. This is driving me crazy. Thank you.  EDIT: I didn't know how to properly describe it, but I found this on Youtube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CF9Pvdsz0UM It sounds on my computer exactly like his (check the video from 47-52 seconds). 

A:Wireless + buzzing sound + lagging video

  OK, I just made an interesting discovery. But I am still puzzled.  When I first got this computer, I tried to clone the drive to an SSD. For some reason it didn't boot. I've cloned many drives in the past, I have no idea why this was different and what I should have done differently. So. I put in the SSD and installed Win8.1 from the scratch, got all the latest drivers from HP. Then my aforementioned sound problems started. SO, I put the original drive back in, with the original factory installation. With that the streaming video is still a little twitchy, but I guess you can expect that from WiFi. But the sound problem is gone. What I now wonder is: - How come I couldn't clone the drive in the first place, what is so different about Win8.1 and/or HP laptops that I should know about, compared to other drives I've cloned. - Could it have something to do with the SSD? I doubt that though(?) - Is it that for some reason the older version of the driver works better than the one on HP site. - IS THERE A SPECIFIC ORDER to install the drivers, chipset, LAN etc.... or ? - How an earth am I going to get the SSD on my computer now, I am so used to its speed. Any ideas about safely cloning it? - Wonder if installing Win10 would make any difference? I even tried to first put it in, then restore the system from recovery discs, but it always immediately stops with an error: 0xefffff23  Any advice wo...

I have a HP-dv6 -6050 laptop, bought it last august. It was running fine up until a month or two ago. I don't recall what I did but I think it was the time I installed Dragon Age: Origins. Either way, I noticed some problems since then.
Firstly it became very slow...even deleting files took longer than usual even of size 18 bytes.Programs and folder would take time to launch.
Secondly, which is a big headache, audio and video files now get stuck every 3-5 seconds while playing them. It is there evn in VLC player.
I tried defragging, some kind of a memory test through diagnostic startup, and even returned the system to factory settings. Sometimes it seems to get better.. but only for a while.
Also, the graphic card switching mechanism seems to be a bit buggy. When I plug in the power source, the dialog box to switch the graphic card doesn't appear.
I would be very grateful to anyone who can help sort this out.

I've had a big problem lately (and getting progressively worse) with a strange stutter to every action. My mouse stutters, my music stutters - even games stutter - it starts to go, hesitates, and then jumps to where you were going.

I have a core monitor set up and when it stutters, one of my cores (4 literal - 8 virtual) spikes to high usage for whatever reason - but only one core - the rest are barely used.

I've checked drivers. I've checked hardware as best I can, but I'm not really sure what's going on. I've fixed lots of computers in my day, but I'm somewhat stumped as to this one. I've never run into this problem before.

I've checked for virus, malware, spyware, etc. - it's all clean (it's only a few weeks old!) Any input as to potential causes would be most useful!

Check 3rd party drivers out. Run the Driver Verifier --> http://jcgriff2.com/driver_verifier.htm

I built a new system 3 months ago running Windows 8.1. For the past 2 weeks my system has been having major lag issues.
For example - when I play a video in VLC and go onto do another task at the same time like downloading (Files written to temp)
or watch a video on youtube it causes the video and audio to become choppy.
 
My system will then begin lagging and stuttering to the point it becomes unusable. If i do another task directly after e.g. playing music iTunes or watch a YouTube video.
It will begin to shutter again and lag even more leaving me no choice but to hard restart. 
 
There is no bottleneck on the CPU/Ram even when this is happening. Anyone know what could be the cause for this?

About 1-1.5 months ago, I downloaded a file that might have been malicious. First thing I noticed was that while I was watching a Youtube, the sound started stuttering/echoing as the video lags as well. I then noticed that this also happens with any video on the internet (facebook, narutoget, vines, yahoo, imdb, etc...) At first I thought it was just my internet connection. I restarted my router but it still happens. I opened a mp3 file with Windows Media Player and the thing happens. System sound also stutter/echo. Recently, I downloaded a GBA emulator. I was playing a game when the sound started stuttering/echoing. I noticed then that it wasn't just the sound, the game was also slowing down as the sound stutters. 
 
This does not happen everytime I play a video/game. Sometimes, I can go through a whole 20 min video without any issue. Sometimes, the issue starts as soon I start a video but disappears eventually. Sometimes the video starts ok but gets worse eventually, gets better, then gets worse, etc...

So I'm at my wits end on this one. I've searched high and low on just about every forum for a fix to this.

My PC seems to stutter and lag during any kind of network traffic to my PC. At first I thought it was just happening when I was watching Youtube vids or downloading torrents but sitting there with nothing running and a simple message through skype will trigger it too. Just did a re-install of windows and it's still happening, which is making me lose my mind.
Restarting Windows fixes it temporarily but within 1-2 hours the problem begins coming back, it's small at first but gets increadibly bad later. Leaving my pc running all night, by next morning watching youtube vids is pretty much in slow motion with long drawn out stuttery sound.
Disabling the wireless adaptor actually stops it all, I can start watching a youtube vid and halfway through it lagging and sputtering along if I disable the adaptor it instantly plays normal, until it gets through everything it buffered.

Heres a breakdown of everything I've tried thus far to fix it.

-Updated Windows
-Updated graphics driver
-Updated sound driver
-Updated wireless drivers
-Disabled wifi card and used a USB adaptor instead
-Disabled my page file
-Disabled event log
-Tried a different browser
-Restarting modem

and finally the last thing I tried:
-Re-installed Windows 10 as a fresh install on a brand new SSD

There may have been a few other things I tried to in there but cannot remember.

A:PC lagging and stuttering during network traffic (Win 10)

Hi Vedegris and welcome to Ten Forums!

Since you've done so much work already, possibility to solve your problem here looks not very high to me.
First of all - I have no idea, but if I would be in your place there are few things that I would do: when the problem occurs
- check in task manager (or ProcessExplorer from Sysinternals) if there is CPU high load and which program causes it,
- do the same for possible memory leak
- try with wired network
- reset you BIOS

I'm sure you've done all the search for possible problems of your motherboard and graphic card.

So, recently, something like 4 days ago i spilled juice on my laptop. I had it cleaned right away and i was told it should be ok.

Recently, however, i've had problems playing any video. Whenever i play a video (with bsplayer or windows media player. it happens in vlc too, but to a much lesser extent: freezes that leave the image broken for 0.5 seconds ) it will work fine for a couple of minutes then start to stutter, freezing up for 2 or 3 seconds then skipping ahead, with the audio playing normally.
However, when i try to store the same video on an usb drive and play it from there, the issue doesn't seem to happen (or at least from what i've seen; i haven't let it run more than 30 min, could happen there also but slower).

My first idea was that this was a hard drive issue, but after running some programs to test the hard drive, they all pointed out no problems. I had a friend who works in tech support tell me (after i briefly explained the issues) that it might be a motherboard issue, but i don't see how that can be the case seeing as the videos run fine from usb for the most part. He suggested trying to reinstall windows. Is that a good idea?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

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.

After my computer is left on for a period of time (anywhere from a few hours to a day or two), it starts lagging and stuttering. A "spike of lag" occurs every few seconds, temporarily freezing the system (typing/mouse movement is affected, sound isn't). It can't be a RAM issue because I have 16GB of RAM and task manager shows that only 50% of my memory is being used. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Rebooting solves the issue immediately but it is a pain to reboot all the time.

A:System stuttering and lagging after long uptime

You state that 50% of 16 gigs of ram is being used. That is a very large amount of ram being used.

You can look in Task Manager and see if you can see what is using all the ram.

You could also go into msconfig/Startup and see what programs are starting at boot and running in the background that do need to start at boot.

When you ram is being 50 % used could you post a picture like this.

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.

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!

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?

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?

Sometimes my computer will have this stuttering problem with video. It doesn't matter how much RAM I am using.

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.

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.

Hi My friend bought an old laptop off of his friend last I assisted him with respecing the system abit then and everything was running smoothly, however (we all knew this was coming) something has gone wrong. Pure and simple I installed Cyberlink PowerDVD with his system so that he would have the codec's to play DVD's not supported by default in windows xp even after a media player up date to 11. (By the way Microsoft waiting for 12 for XP sometime even if it's just an interface update!)

So that worked for a while but now he started experiencing trouble so he tried to fix it himself and from what he's told me did quite well. He reinstalled Cyberlink PowerDVD right still no joy, oh before this he used it instead of Windows Media Player 11 and that fixed the problem for a while but it started having the problem.

A:DVD Problems sound but no video on old laptop

Do the DVD's play if copied to a folder on the machine? If they do, the drive is not the problem (which is unlikely, anyway, since the sound plays, though that can happen when the data stream is too slow to support video but supports audio still). Check the settings for the drive in Device Manager and BIOS and be sure that DMA is enabled, if available. Try increasing the cache time in VLC.

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

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.

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.

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

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!

Hi there. I have been using the RC of Windows 7 for a few months now but have found that when playing videos in WMP or VLC player, I have a few problems. In WMP, the video will regularly stutter and slow whilst the sounds continues, then speed up and catch up with the sound.

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?

Hi everyone. So my audio is stuttering every minute or so. It runs fine and then on random intervals it stutters for a second and then carrys on like normal. 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.

Some time within the past week, all the audio I play on my HP PC started skipping and stuttering. Sometimes just a split-second pause, sometimes the machine-gun digital stutter. It doesn't matter if it's iTunes or streaming from my browser. I just downloaded and installed the latest driver from Realtek today; it made no difference. Please help! Thanks.

Maybe Mr Fixit can help
If he cannot, try a system restore. If that works, great. If not, it will give us a lead on the potential causes; since it is not the OS.

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.

Any ideas?

Thanks so much

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.

Hello Rob.

Try updating your sound card driver and your video card driver by doing a quick google search with your computers make and model.

example: "google search > "HP Pavilion g6 drivers"

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.

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,

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?

Many Thanks,

- Rog

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?

hi, I posted

http://www.techsupportforum.com/f16/...em-417850.html

here originally thinking I had a hardware problem - but a tsf team member brought up that it sounded like malware, so here I am....

since I ran these logs, I uninstalled Adaware, guessing that Adaware plus Kaspersky was the cause of a couple of hangs.


Brief history, this is an HP510 laptop 50G hard drive that we keep in the kitchen, as in my little kid bangs on it, spills a little on it etc. Also it shares a router with the babysitter's computer, whose protection status, where she surfs, etc are probably not as careful as mine. Otherwise

Hp510 laptop
WinXP Pro SP 3
Kaspersky, WinPatrol, (for a few hours yesterday Adaware now uninstalled )
rarely used in questionable places like a hotel room, Starbucks, otherwise I surf through a router using a limited account 99+% of the time.

For weeks, Kaspersky updates had been incredibly slow. Also for quite a while , not sure which started first, the laptop has been ...s.l.o.w... - for example sometimes I'll type in a website name and none of the characters will show for a good 15 seconds, then they'll all or some of them show up at once..

a few days back Kaspersky couldn't open, I downloaded a new version of Kaspersky - now has Kaspersky 2010 - on a different computer then installed it to this one off a USB drive (ie, no surfing during the time of no Kaspersky), then at restart it ran chkdsk -- found a couple of bad sectors.
