Progressively Worse Audio Quality (Crackling)

Q: Progressively Worse Audio Quality (Crackling)

Hello. Hoping someone can help me. Since upgrading my Windows 7 to Windows 10, I've had audio problems. At first the audio quality was terrible (hissing, crackling) so I uninstalled and reinstalled my NVIDIA drivers. This fixed the problem but now I find that the audio quality gets worse over time. Once I reboot it goes back to pristine quality and that lasts a day or two but slowly the quality gets worse with more crackling. It's very annoying.

Any idea what's going on? Is it somehow tied to my RAM or some kind of cache that builds up over time?

I'm a noob so bear with me!

Preferred Solution: Progressively Worse Audio Quality (Crackling)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Thinking this was a one off, I tried to resume but 45 minutes later it happened again. After another restart I attempted the 'repair system files option' on boot, and after this supposedly complete although how successful it was wasnt immediately apparent, it tried to boot back into windows but froze again on the loading screen.

So I restarted again, and things seem to be getting progressively worse. The system is now incredibly slow with hard drive operations, such as opening folders, deleting installing etc. But the CPU usage is low according to task manager.

Things I've tried....

I have run Hijack This! and could find now evidence of anything suspicous, further to this I have NOD32 installed and it's upto date and I havent taken any risky behavior (websites, downloads etc) scan came out clean.

I have also run Prime 95 to eliminate hardware causes and I havent found any problems nor have I got it to produce a crash.

I have run windows built in boot diagnostic memory scanner, to no avail.

Right now it's running the bsod program by J. Griffiths (an admin here) and it's been running for well over half an hour now at the 'this may take 1-2 minutes point) system is still responding though.

Sadly I didnt have a restore point saved.

Please advise,
Vastly appreciated.

Griff isnt an admin here and his app shouldn't take that long. Did you run it as admin?

There are several ways to find what the problem is. The best is to go into event viewer (type eventvwr in search). Event viewer (local) and look for the critical errors listed in the last day, week, etc. Then go to the windows log>application tab. Finally the windows Logs>system tabs.

You want to look for critical errors (they have red in the left column ).

When you find them you want to look for critical errors that say app hang, app crash, or anything that relates to the problem.

When you find them please note the event ID, and the source codes and tell us what they are.

Hi,Please uninstall Magicantispy again and don't let it install the next time.Then, * Download Combofix to your desktop.Doubleclick combofix.exeFollow the prompts.Don't click on the window while the fix is running, because that will cause your system to hang.When finished and after reboot (in case it asks to reboot), combofix will open again to gather the necessary information for the log. This may take a bit. When done, Combofix will close and a log should open, combofix.txt. Post the contents of this log in your next reply together with a new hijackthislog.Do NOT post the ComboFix-quarantined-files.txt - unless I ask you to.

Hello, Shinerai
Welcome to TSF

My name is Billy O'Neal and I will be helping you. (Billy or Bill is fine, if you like.)
Please give me some time to look over your computer's log(s).
Please take note of the following:In the meantime, please refrain from making any changes to your computer.
Also, even if things appear to be running better, there is no guarantee that everything is finished. Please continue to check this forum post in order to ensure we get your system completely clean. We do not want to clean you part-way up, only to have the system re-infect itself. :)
If you do not understand any step(s) provided, please do not hesitate to ask before continuing. I would much rather clarify instructions or explain them differently than have something important broken.
Finally, please reply using the button in the lower left hand corner of your screen.
Old topics are closed after 3 days with no reply, and working topics are closed after 5 days. If for any reason you cannot complete instructions within that time, that's fine, just put a post here so that I know you're still here. We get a lot of people who simply leave, and if there is no contact for that amount of time I will have to assume you have "vanished" .

My motherboard is a PCCHIPS M848LU V1.2 and the onboard sound is a C-Media AC97 (I don't know the exacts of it, but I think I can find out) It has up-to-date drivers

I just bought this comp from, its an AMD Athlon XP2600+, maxtor 30gig 7200rpm hd, 128mb ddr pc2100 ram (512 PC2700, whenever it gets here...) nvidia 128mb geforce4mx440, Windows XP Professional SP1a, 52x24x52x cd-rw..onboard NIC, onboard sound.

Anyway, whenever I play *most* (I say most because a few mp3s either from winamp radiostations or mp3s on my harddrive dont crack, but the sound quality is still alittle bad) it cracks some-what badly, some worse than others.. I've tried reinstalling the drivers and messing around with the settings, no help...everythings brand-new, so think it might be defective, or an hardware conflict? Thanks in advance.

A:Sound crackling, bad quality (onbored sound)

Well you could visit the PCCHIPS website and see if they have any updates for the Sound.

Also try another pair of speakers, could be bad speakers or a damaged cable/plug.

Thats a fairly nice machine, however you shouldn't have skimped on the motherboard - its one of the lowest end manufacturers of mobo's.

You may be better off by simple buying a PCI soundcard - I recommend a Creative Soundblaster - and disable the onboard sound. You'll get better quality sound and better performance in games.

Recently my speakers started crackling whenever I had the sound on. It's slowly getting worse.

I've tested the problem on a second set of speakers and a pair of headphones. It exists on any set of speakers I use. I ran the sound diagnostics that come with windows and they claim the sound card is working fine. I don't know whether I need to replace the sound card or am suffering from interference from some outside electronics.

Any suggestions?

Greetings one and all I ve recently been helping my housemate with her computer Its a Dell desktop - not the most up to date system but certainly the spec should be sufficient so as not to run into the problem we ve been having When playing music through i-tunes every now Audio Crackling and then there s a skip or crackle in Crackling Audio the music almost like a cd with a scratch on the disc Its the kind of thing you would expect to happen if you were multi tasking in a big way and the processir or RAM was over worked Anyway i ve pretty much shut down all other programs other than i-tunes and or windows media player Crackling Audio and have been keeping watch on the performance in the taskmanager and its not coming near hitting peak for processor activity or ram usage Is there anything else that would effect eh playback of audio in this way I ve made sure both programs are up to date with the latest updates and all downloaded codecs etc I ve also checked the physical hardware and all connections seem to be sound i ve even tried a seperate set of active speakers but this is not helping the situation either Just to give you an over view of the system its a Celeron with megs of RAM Im sure this should have been ample to run these audio management programs without causing any trouble The sound card on board is a SoundMAx integrated digital audio - not sure how much help this offers Any advice you might be able to offer is appreciated as always

A:Crackling Audio

It sounds like your hardware buffer is simply set to low. Push up the hardware buffer until the skipping/popping stops.

There is a trade off though, the higher your buffer is set the more latency you will get so find a happy median with no skipping/popping noises and as little latency as possible, but when simply playing music latency should not be an issue.

Hope that this helps

Hello Stylez21,
I would start by going over, and checking, what you did when you replaced the HDD's, check all cabling, both power and data, not just to the HDD, but check all MB connections too.
Try a new Sata data lead.
Did you partition the new HDD before installing the OS ?.
Are you using the MB drivers that came with it, or are you Downloading new ones from the makers site ?.
Can you list some system specs too, thanks.
Let us know, good luck.

I just recently got a laptop from Dell, and whenever I try to play games (atleast the BF2 Demo and the Ghost Recon Advanced Warrior Demo) the audio makes crackling noises. I do not encounter this problem when playing any Steam games (CS Source or DoD Source)

I tried installing the latest drivers, but that did nothing.

My audio drivers are made by SigmaTel; there was no option for upgrading the sound card when I got my laptop, so I got stuck with that company.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

A:Crackling Audio

never heard of sigma audio driver.

But when you play bf2, what setting is your audio set to? your allowed, low, medium, high, and ultra high. Maybe your audio card aint that powerful so you might wanna try lowering audio setting and if you have eax enable, disable it.
Also, i notice both games your having problem with support xfi sound card by creative, so something is going on there. And counter strike which does not support it runs fine for you.

Eversince i've had my computer there's been a problem with the audio of cd's and cd roms. A constant crackling that beats in time with the led light on the cd drive no matter what program i use, real player, windows media and others. But if i play a cd without using a program (just press play on the cd drive) then it's ok. Music I've downloaded from the internet or recorded from the cd drive also plays fine. There's no conflicts.

I suspect you have the classic VIA chipset audio issue. I have a machine that does the same thing, and there never was a total fix for it. You might try the latest VIA 4-in-1 drivers.

Ignore this advice if you don't have a VIA chipset board, the one thing you didn't specify was the motherboard make or model.

HI! I have a new HP HDX16t Notebook. Awesome PC however I noticed that when I listen to audio like in iTunes and Winamp or the Windows Media Player it will occasionally hiss or crack or pop for like a half of second. Doesn't do it that often but it's doing it enough where something isn't right. I noticed it really does it when a web page is loading. Now keep in mind I have a pretty good computer and am not overloading anything so it shouldn't have a problem. Browsing a site should not cause the audio to crack or pop. Anyway click my profile for my system specs.

I've tried both the i/o and the motherboard, I've tried disabling audio enhancements but that doesn't help either. The crackling gets worse when the CPU is working, not as bad when it is idle so it might be a latency issue. Any ideas?

Hi, I got the same problem but not quite as bad as you, had this many times before on different systems and there is a tonne of factors to take into consideration (currently I'm working through my own to solve the yet again, post reinstall)... but to keep it simple to start with do you have FFDshow installed ? some games do not like that and you can disable it for that game if that is the case... Do you have any Codec pack's installed ? for example I think my current problem is related to Klite Codec pack, well more specifically the LAV Audio... Sorry maybe not much help to you so far but I think we do need to know if you have any of these, Codec packs, FFDshow or whatever before troubleshooting.

Hi all;

Question about the audio on my laptop. Have any of you ever experienced "popping" during audio playback? It says the drivers are working ok. It never threw a code or anything. Any suggestions, ideas as to goings on?

A:Crackling and popping audio.

This is a fairly common complaint, although there haven't been many lately. If you search through the postings here you will find a lot of them. Unfortunately there is no "one fix" for this problem. Drivers are one issue, make sure you have the latest (and correct) driver for your sound device. Video card drivers is another known cause. Wi-Fi is another known cause.

Just have to start, one at a time, updating drivers and trying to isolate what the problem is.

I've recently noticed that the sound coming through my speakers is heavily distorted and crackly. It's not the speakers themselves; they have been tested. I thought that the port might be loose, but it happens with anything plugged into the front jack as well. The Audio Troubleshooter from Microsoft claims no issues; I have attempted to uninstall and then reinstall the latest Realtek HD Audio drivers, and seen no improvements. I'm at a loss as to what else it could be.

A .txt file of my Speccy output is attached.


A:Distorted and crackling audio

This can be a frustrating problem to find a solution. I once had the problem with an old Creative sound card and a driver update resolved it. That was the easy solution. The harder diagnosis is with interference. You may have interference coming into your system from elsewhere, or it may be internal or coming from the motherboard itself. You can look at the problems others have had at this link to see how some found it frustrating to diagnose and solve.

I would first try removing possible sources of interference. What other devices do you have connected to the power strip the computer is plugged into? If you have a phone, printer, or scanner plugged into the same power strip, plug them into another strip or a different circuit altogether in your home. You also may try shutting down the system and making certain all internal cards and wires are firmly connected. Over time some things can work themselves loose somewhat especially if you've recently moved the system for any reason.

Hope this helps lead you to an idea that will resolve the problem. Good luck.

I've been getting this sound problem for a few days now, and it's really getting on my nerves. Whenever I try to play a game or do something that requires my computer to work a little, I get this very annoying crackling/popping sound coming from my speakers/headphones. I have 8GB of RAM, and I never see my CPU usage or my memory usage reach 100%, so it's not like my computer can't handle a game or two. This only started happening randomly one day. I'm pretty sure it's not a problem with my headphones, speakers, or the games I play, because I've tried re-installing, using different headphones, etc. The audio has also crackled a few times randomly, even when I'm not doing much on the computer. Does anyone have an idea of what might be causing this?

I've got a relatively new PC and have been encountering occasional problems. Sometimes if I open a new tab on my browser, or when I'm watching a film, or playing games, my PC lags (sort of stalls) slightly and the audio crackles this occurs for around 1 seconds.

This is quite a difficult one to troubleshoot and it could be from a variety of sources.

I should mention I've blue screened multiple times over the last couple of months and if I remember correctly it's was something to do with physical memory crash dump.

My hardware is up to date, so I have no clue what would be causing this.

Hey guys, as the title suggests i often get distorted/crackling audio through my headset/speakers, and have had this problem for a very long time. I have tried numerous suggestions to fix this issue, but it seems they have all had no effect This distortion/carackling is becoming a real nusance, and appears to hit the performance of my computer fairly drasticly at times. I'd appreciate any suggestions that may finally deal with this stubborn issue at last. I have attatched some of the results from the DPC latency scanner to hopefully help find the root of this problem.

Download and run the free Resplendece Latency Mon. It may help you isolate what the problem is.

Resplendence Software - Advanced System Tools and Developer Components

There is also a "DPC Latency Checker" program but it is invalid for Windows 8/8.1 so don't use that.
Popping and crackling are often reported audio problems. There is no "one fix" for the problem. Each one has to be handled individually. One instance may be the sound driver, another may be a video driver, another could be wi-fi, etc.

Assuming you are running XP, check the Device Mnager to see if anything hardware wise is out of whack. RIGHT click My Computer and choose Properties, the choose the Hardware Tab. Click on the Device Manager button. The list should show normal if there are all + marks by each device catagory. If something is wrong, you will see a YELLOW mark by it denoting what is not working properly. Post back with what you find there. There are over 1000 things that will make your computer run slow, so this is a start.

Hello,Recently the sound from my speakers has started to crackle when I am in a game and also when a UAC window pops up. I have used DPC Latency Checker and seen that when the audio crackles, the latency is very high. This screenshot shows the results of a UAC window popping up and being closed at the point when the bars are red.I was hoping it would resolve when I re-installed windows 7 and updated my drivers but the crackling still persists. By checking DPC latency when some devices were disabled in Device Manager one by one, I noticed that without my graphics card (nVidia GeForce GTS 250 512MB) driver installed, the audio crackling and latency was gone. (Screenshot)Obviously this can't be a permanent solution. Any ideas?Cheers.

Or uninstalling your audio drivers and then reinstalling same?

Have looked around all my audio settings but cant find any clues. music etc is still listenable, but there is just a faint crackle constantly annoying me. and distortion if i turn the volume up louder.

I also tried messing around with my threshold and dB settings and everything I tried rendered the same effects. I even tried turning alot of things to default.

So hopefully someone can help me here!

For the past few days I've been trying to fix the sound stuttering when I'm listening to music, and after monitoring the dpc latency it seems to be caused by a bad driver. I've updated all my drivers and tried finding which one is causing the latency spikes but no luck so far.

DPC latency when i'm not getting stutters:
Yfrog - dpc1

Yfrog - dpc2
Yfrog - dpc3

Also, I don't know if this means anything but when I open up hwinfo32 and the hardware summary is shown, i get this pattern:
Yfrog - hwinfodpc (big screenshot)

When I close the summary it's back to normal. Does this mean it's related to one of the parts shown in the hwinfo32 summary?
I've tried disabling wlan, vga, sound, and modem in device manager, uninstalled daemon tools and it's driver etc, but that didn't change anything.

Any advice?

So yeah, my audio has a tendency to crackle lately, and sometimes Windows Media Player stutters, slows and glitches up, particularly when running something like Windows Live Messenger. I'm assuming its something to do with my sound driver/audio device, since I only just formatted my PC and reinstalled Windows. Is there anything I can do to improve it?

My driver is the ALi Audio Accelerator WDM driver, if that helps.

A:Improving my sound driver/audio crackling

Other than checking your soundcard manufacturers website for an updated driver, I'd check your volume levels. just DOUBLE-Click the little speaker icon down by the clock to bring up windows volume controls and click Options then properties and make sure all boxes are checked on that window then click Ok. now all available volume levels for your card will be displayed on the volume control window for you to adjust. also if you click the options menu again and click Advanced Controls then click the Advanced button that will appear under some of the volumes you can adjust bass and treble and other things. just mess around with them a little.

good luck

A:Seemingly random audio crackling/popping

Please fill in the My System Specs - we can only guess and talk in generalities without it.

If you look over the many posts on this forum (and other forums) about the popping and crackling you will see its an often reported problem.

There is no "one fix" for this, however there are some things that are known to cause it (and high latency). Wireless controllers (wi-fi) are one known cause. A user on the Sonar (recording software) forum reported getting spikes and high latency as shown with the DPC Latency checker. His problem turned out to the the wireless adapter (controller) and as soon as he disabled it his problem went away.

Video drivers and sound drivers are another issue.

That Virtual Audio Cable sets up virtual audio devices and that can be a prime issue. You should have a "System Mixer" (could also be called Stereo Mix and what SoundBlaster calls "What You Hear") and these functions will allow you to record streaming 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.

NEVER EVER get a cmedia product. they have NO TECH SUPPORT whatsoever, other than the comunity support forums which noone from CMEDIA themselves uses.

i whish i could help but i cant. until there is a fix, i suggest sound blaster.

A:Flight Simulator/Itunes Audio Crackling

don't use iTunes in the background. It's most likely that using two programs to use the sound card may conflict with each other, or try turning off the MUSIC part of the game (if there is an option, there should be) and see if that helps.

This has been happening for 2 years, but as of earlier this month, my audio has been acting up MUCH more than it used to. Now, whenever I listen to any sound (music, watch videos, etc.) my speakers make this crackling/buzzing/stutter/lag sound every few seconds which makes me never want to use my audio because it is so annoying. I looked up this problem and many people mentioned that by using earphones the buzzing stops, but not for me. Also, I installed and uninstalled a bunch of the drivers that Dell told me to update (IDT Audio, Quickset64, and the BIOS) but this hasn't made any difference. I feel like this is a software problem but I wanted to hear professional opinions to see if it actually is.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

A:Crackling noise in audio on both speakers and headphones

Hi dmang24,
I appreciate for the drivers update. I suggest that you run diagnostics on hardware components, since both speaker and headphones are having crackling noise even after drivers update.
To run diagnostics restart the system and at the Dell logo tap the F12 key every two seconds. This will start the One-time boot menu. Using arrow keys select ‘Diagnostics’ and hit enter. This will run diagnostics on the hardware components of the system which may take around 5 minutes. Please reply to this post in case of any error message.
You may also go through this link for assistance.

Ok guys, sorry for just joining to ask a question but i am really stuck, basically what is happening is I am getting a crackling noise from my speakers and headphones on windows 7, it is not my sound card as i use a separate usb card for the headphones meaning this cant be a problem with the drivers as they are both using different ones right? windows 7 was basically my version of vista, vista worked perfectly for me, i just don't know what is going on and it has me annoyed as i invest a lot in my audio just to have the os crap on it, anyone have any ideas?, just drop any questions below and i will give you a detailed response, thanks.

First - that temperature looks fine to me - slightly high but still fine.

Second - that crackling you hear is probably hardware related.

Have you tried listening via headphones? Do you get the same noise?

A:Crackling/Clicking/Popping/ Audio Issue

USB devices do not use the PC's sound card, they take digital and convert it to analog audio. Does sound do the same thing with regular PC audio?

Popping/crackling, etc is an often posted problem. Unfortunately there is no "one fix" for the problem. Some known potential items are Wi-Fi, sound drivers, video drivers, power supply noise, etc. With USB headphones drivers for the headphones could be an issue.

A:Audio crackling/stuttering on Windows 7, latency problems

The Audio Crackling and stuttering can have many causes. Unfortunately there is no "one fix" for the problem. Latency Mon can help, if you can understand what it is telling your. I use my main PC for my recording studio and I tried Latency Mon on my recording PC, that had no problems, just to look at the program and it flagged several problems so I'm leery of what it reports.

There is an other program, DPC Latency checker which may also help but it doesn't go deep into the PC like Latency mon.

Some general items that have been known to cause the crackling/popping/stuttering are sound and video drivers. Wi-Fi is another known cause. As you have a laptop, temporarily disable Wi-Fi and see if changes anything.

Stuttering can also be caused by the higher priority device that is sharing the same IRQ (Interrupt) as the Sound. Windows treats Sound as a "low priority" device and is on the same (shared) IRQ with a higher priority device. The higher priority device can "interrupt" the sound device and thus cause stuttering.

Look through the many posts, here, on the subject. Maybe something will pop out that will help.

Relevancy 55.04%

Hi Everyone:

I have a Sony Vaio VPCL23CFX All-in-one desktop computer (See my SPECS).

I have an odd problem that I cannot seem to resolve. When I play a song, any song, or any MUSIC, for that matter, I get a popping/crackling noise every once in a while. Sometimes it won't happen for a minute, then it will happen every 5 or 10 seconds and then it will stop, then it will start back up again with the every 10 seconds and then not for a minute thing.

It NEVER happens when no music is playing, for example, during a movie when there is no soundtrack playing or if I am watching a Youtube video that has no music. I get the same popping/crackling noise whether it is though the computer speakers or through the headphones.

Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this to happen or how I might get it to stop?



A:Intermittent popping/crackling noise during audio playback

Popping and crackling, if you look over the old posts here, is a frequent issue. Unfortunately there is no "one fix" for the problem.

Among many potential issues, sound drivers (make sure you have the correct sound driver from Sony), video drivers, Wi-Fi, power supply, external source such as a wireless phone or cell phone close by.

On the audio, if you only have the generic Windows installed "HD Audio Codec" that is the first place to start. Get the correct sound driver. What you list for the Sound Card is not really what it is, correct designation is "RealTek", according to the Sony site.

Hi guys and gals.
I am new to the forum here but I am having a bit of a problem with my laptop. I have a Dell Inspiron 1535 with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit. The problem I am currently having is that when listening to music (mp3s, YouTube, iTunes, WMP, anything) there's a hesitation and a lag in the computer (much like someone skipping a record). I have done a bit of research on my own and tried many of the proposed solutions such as: disabling enhancements, virus scans, malware scans and so forth. If there's anything else you guys can think of that could help me I would greatly appreciate it, or if there is any other information I can provide that would help you help me I would be happy to do that. As an avid music listener this is a truly annoying problem that I hope I can solve.

Thank you

So I just got this new laptop for my birthday and only really have one issue with it, the audio. At first, there was 0 bass at all whenever audio left the speakers, which I found out is a common issue for Toshiba Satellite models because of Toshiba's sound mixer. I deleted the program and got the bass working properly and now I noticed that the audio crackles whenever I'm trying to listen to music or watch Netflix. I've read this is a common issue but I have yet to find a fix for me. Please help.

A:Toshiba Satellite Click 2 L35w-B3204 crackling audio

The "crackles" is an often reported problem. Sound problems such as this can be hard to pin down. There are several potential causes, one is Wi-Fi (and that could account for the Netflix problem). Others are drivers, both sound and video.

I don't know what the Toshiba Sound Mixer is, but did you have the problem before you deleted that? I would make sure the PC was like it was originally and start from that. Also, check for updated sound drivers from Toshiba (or if it has Realtek audio get the latest drivers direct from Realtek) and video drivers.

Try the sound locally, with wi-fi disabled and see if you still get the crackling.

So I had some problems with using speakers and plugging in headphones. I did find out that my front panel audio jack just doesnt work, so I plug my headphones into the back panel. The sound of the left speaker is strong and sounds good, but the right doesnt sound good. I made them both the same volume level, but it seems that the right side of the headphones crackle and the sound falls flat. I am using audio-technica m50s, (which sound just fine in any other device). When I use a usb transmitter for wireless gaming headset, the audio is fine. But I would like to use my m50s and buy an attachable mic for them so the sound quality is superb.

Hello people while playing Arma I noticed latency to driver nvlddmkm.sys issue Nvidia Audio due crackling strange crackling popping noises in the menu and in-game when there were a lot of background sounds I found a video of someone else on YouTube who had the same issue Arma - Crackling and Popping Audio - YouTube The crackling was also brought to Audio crackling due to nvlddmkm.sys Nvidia driver latency issue my attention during video playback on YouTube at Audio crackling due to nvlddmkm.sys Nvidia driver latency issue some occasions Sometimes videos froze or turned black I did not think much of it when I first noticed it A few days ago I remember having a quot nvlddmkm sys stopped working and recovered quot warning when the pc came back from sleep mode that I now recognize as another symptom of the issue I also experienced multiple BSODs caused by nvlddmkm sys a month or so ago that I suspected to be caused by faulty drivers However no BSOD or quot stopped working warning quot has happened to me ever since When I googled the sound crackles today I read that there might be a connection to a latency issue with my drivers I installed LatencyMon Dpc Latency checker doesn't work with Windows I let it run in the background while I continued playing Arma and it confirmed my suspicion According to Latency Mon the Nvidia Windows Kernel Mode driver my old friend Nvlddmkm sys is causing the quot buffer underruns quot I attached screenshots of the LatencyMon results to this post When I found out that the problem lay with my graphics driver I did a complete clean install of Windows I turned off automatic driver updates and reinstalled all drivers manually from scratch But the issue persisted I even plugged in a different pair of speakers to see if my subwoofers were failing but still no avail The new speakers had even worse sound disruptions strange low tone background noise eve though there was no sound input I also updated my BIOS I am getting the idea that this is in fact a problem with my GPU a factory overclocked GTX ti I hope there are a few experts who can give their opinion on this Thank you very much for taking your time to help me with this

A:Audio crackling due to nvlddmkm.sys Nvidia driver latency issue

Have integrated sound card and Lan card ? Happen to add new hardware recently ? So you upgraded originally from another OS and did clean install of Win 10 ? Using HDMI to monitor try disabling HDMI Audio in sound properties or NVIDIA control panel. Updated all other system and hardware devices,like sound, Lan, etc.. ? Try reseating Graphics card and you said you uninstalled the drivers for Video cleanly, try this then reinstall them again
What i am not sure of is this issue happened with only the new NVIDIA drivers, new hardware (possible video card or other), assumed happened only now in Windows 10. Could be conflict with another hard or it's drivers or settings on either.

A:Audio Popping/Crackling/Static Windows 7 x64 on Asus f50 Series

I'm having the same issue, I believe so at least. Quite randomly, at about 5 to 10 second intervals, the sound will cut out with a pop which lasts for 1/4 of a second and carries on.

I 'fixed' it briefly last night by reverting all of my Realtek Sound drivers to Windows drivers, but when I turned on the computer this morning, the problem was back.

Windows 7 64-bit I'm using an AMD Athlon 64 3500+ processor My audio is working, but I'm getting "popping" noises every 15-30 seconds and it's really bothering me. I updated to the latest driver for Realtek AC'97 and I insalled the Realtek HD Audio drivers, but only the AC'97 shows up in the device manager. When I got to add/remove programs, it shows that HD Audio can be uninstalled, but I don't know if that means it's working. From reading around on the internet, some people said the HD Audio driver solved their problem, but I'm not sure if mine is actually working or not. I don't know much about computers, so please spell things out explicitly for me so I can just follow directions.
