Buzzing/stuttering during audio playback on xps 13 9333

Q: Buzzing/stuttering during audio playback on xps 13 9333

Recently I've been having some problems playing back any sort of media. At regular intervals the audio will freeze/skip for a second and make a loud buzzing noise, then resume. This happens with both music and streaming videos. If I'm watching a video, the screen will freeze for a second, buzz, then resume.
I'm using an xps 13 9333 with Windows 8.1 64-bit.
I've tried everything I could think of, updating all my drivers, reinstalling codecs, running anti-virus, and cleaning out my system.
Any suggestions?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

I have found a solution 2 days ago Dell installed an update for dell support assist and dell support agent When i removed these programs from the Control panel the problem went away.
I have windows 7 64 bit (dell XPS L720X).
Some background i originally had this problem two years ago and it was related to McAfee anti virus. My guess is its do to a periodic scan or something like that.

This has been happening for a few months now. The buzzing/stuttering varies and it's quite annoying. It only happens when I watch YouTube videos or just videos in general. I'm not sure if it's a hardware problem or just a driver problem. I have a similar problem as these people: http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3517/t/19412524.aspx except that my computer model isn't a Dell. My main browser if Google Chrome if that helps.

I ran DPC Latency Checker and this came up:
Some device drivers on this machine behave bad and will probably cause drop-outs in real-time audio and/or video streams. To isolate the misbehaving driver use Device Manager and disable/re-enable various devices, one at a time. Try network and W-LAN adapters, modems, internal sound devices, USB host controllers, etc.

After my computer did its usual updates, I've noticed a sound issue whenever I've been trying to play games/watch videos. At regular intervals the audio will freeze/skip for a second and make a loud grinding noise, then resume. This happens with music, streaming videos, games, pretty much everything. If I'm watching a video or playing a game, the screen will freeze for a second, then resume.

I'm using a Dell Inspiron N4110 laptop with Windows 7

I assume I need to install a new driver or something, but I am pretty computer illiterate and don't exactly know what I need/where I need to get it from/how to figure out what I need.

Was hoping someone could help here.

A:Audio buzzing/stuttering during videos/games

Since the screen will "freeze", suggests the sound problems are just a result of whatever is causing the PC to hang up and not directly a sound problem. Thus another forum section would be more applicable than the sound section.

You can run the Resplendence Latency Mon program and that may help, if you can figure it out as it gives you "information overload".

Hi all,

I'm posting in the Windows forum because the exact source of the issue is unknown. If we come up with a more precise cause I would be happy to move the discussion to the appropriate forum.

The problem is a brief sporadic stuttering or digitization noise (very similar to some elements of dubstep music actually). It sounds like a quarter-second of audio is repeated at high speed and then it goes back to normal. This happens with variable frequency; sometimes once every minute or two, sometimes as long as 45 minutes between occurences. The frequency seems at least partially dependent on the graphical output being used, but it's hard to tell for sure. The problem is quite immersion-breaking, and it extends to all uses (local music, streaming, gaming, movies, everything). I suspect that the entire computer (not just the audio) may be pausing/stuttering along with it, because sound effects never get desynced with video; for example when people are talking in movies their lips never get out of sync with their voices, despite the audio pausing while it stutters.

This problem started about 3 weeks ago, and I had not made any hardware or software changes that I am aware of.

Possible solutions I have already tried, without effect:
New GPU (same model as old one)
New PSU (same model as old one)
Disconnecting HDMI
Running only 2 monitors
Adjust NVIDIA settings for performance not quality
Rolling back GPU drivers twice to different versions, then updating

I have a brand new Inspiron 7560 and I've been having a lot of issues with the audio and video sort of lagging and making a buzzing noise and stuttering, it happens every 15 minutes when watching something or listening to music.
I had this issue and then got the laptop replaced because I had no idea what the issue was. I don't like returning items but it was brand new and cost a lot so I was worried there was a bigger problem. It happened with the first one from the get go but with the replacement it started happening after a few days of use. It started off with static noises every so often roughly within the first say 30 minutes of turning the laptop on, and then it started doing the buzzing and lagging every 15 minutes like the first one I had. I've also noticed a static noise whenever putting the charger in or out.
I had a look on the internet on how to fix it before I got the first one replaced but none of it worked, I've had another look now and came across a thread but it was from 2011 so thought the fix may be outdated now. I thought my best bet was to just come straight here to see if anyone could help.
I'm really hoping this is a known issue and it's easy to remedy as I really don't want to return this one after already returning one. I'm sorry I haven't got much information about the issue, but I hope someone will be able to help me. If you need anything else I will try my best to answer any questions.
Thanks very much

A:Audio and Video make buzzing noise/stuttering every 15 minutes

Different folks have problems for different reasons.  I would suggest you open at least Task Manager to watch the performance on the system to see if anything pops up every 15 minutes which is using resources.
Keep an eye on Processor speed and utilization.  Also the drive usage.  I can't think of anything which goes on a 15 minute time interval, but possibly some setting you have set up such as checking for mail..
Using Resource Monitor would be even better,  but the software/browser you are using could also be involved.

When I play any audio CD the music play back stutters. I have an integrated sound motherboard. The playback software/device(?) is called ESS Audiodrive. When I ran DXDiag and tested this under the music tab the DXdiag locked up (had to quit DXdiag with task manager). Previous times with DXDiag this test worked fine. Am using WMP 9 recently downloaded and installed. I have attached the DX info file (without running the Music tab ESS Audiodrive test). If there is any other info needed, please reply.

I've got a headset with a mic and In the Audio Manager i've got the playback volume muted. When i un-mute it there is a faint buzzing noise. thats not a big problem but when i want to talk to friends on skype. I'm really quiet and they can hear the buzzing noise. When I try to use the Microphone Boost, the buzzing gets louder. Its a Deep Buzzing noise. I've done many things to try and fix this, messing around with it, going online to find a fix.

I know its not my headset or my mic causeing it; did a test with another headset.

If this problem has been solved already, please link - Thanks

A:Realtek HD Audio Manager, Buzzing noise in playback

Do you get the Buzz with speakers (only) too? If you hear it with the speakers, physically disconnect the speakers from the PC and then see if you hear it in the headphone - with the Headphone only connected, not the mic.

Do you have any other AC powered device (other than a monitor) connected to the PC?

I've tried using both wired and wireless Xbox 360 controllers with the headset as the Default Communication Device for gaming. Everything works fine except for my headset audio, which has severe stuttering or choppiness. It's not just a little crackle or pop, but if somebody starts talking, it'll get stuck on the first syllable and repeat it over and over.

If somebody simply says "Hi", it sounds like, "H - h - h - h - h - i - i - i -i" over the course of 30 seconds or so.

I've tried updating drivers for the controller and the wireless receiver, but I still haven't had any luck. Even doing the audio test in Windows audio settings stutters, so it seems to be any audio - not just online chat, etc. Sometimes, it'll work perfectly for a minute, but always goes back to stuttering. It appears entirely random, so I'm at a loss here.

Any ideas?

OK this is a bit weird.

Every now and then I?ll play an Audio CD on my PC ? I use Winamp for this.

Sometimes when I perform certain actions, the music will start stuttering and distorting ? this happens when doing very simple things, like opening a folder, right clicking for a context sensitive menu, hovering over an object with the mouse, scrolling a web page etc. It doesn?t occur all the time, but it is fairly regular when I?m doing something like this ^^.

Anyone experienced this, or have any idea what could be causing it?

I?ve attached a short sample of what I hear when this happens, it a CD playing on my computer, in winamp ? after a few seconds you?ll hear the stuttering, during this, all I did was right click in an open folder, and navigate to the ?arrange icons by? sub menu. As Soon as I cancel this, the CD continues to play normally. Oh also, when the stutter kicks in, the volume seems to raise quite a lot.

At the time I was running MSN messenger, Firefox, and a few open folders.


A:Stuttering CD playback

Defrag your hard drive and see if that helps.

Try to uninstall winamp and reinstall the latest version and see if it helps.

If you're still having your problem, then it seems that winamp can't have all the ressources he needs for audio playback when you're doing other things on your computer. Either winamp or another program asks for too much ressources, or you have unsufficient memory/cpu ressources.

Do you have the same problems when you play your CD's with Windows Media Player ?

Open the task manager (ctrl+alt+del), go to the performance tab and tell us if the cpu usage is at its maximum when you do your other things while Winamp runs in the background.
Go in the processes tab and report the following values :
- the cpu usage of the winamp process when it's the only application running.
- the names of all processes that are using more than 10% of the cpu usage when your audio problems happen.
Also, in the performance tab, check if the commited charge is close or equal to your total physical memory (compare the circled values as on the image on this link : http://www.edbott.com/weblog/?p=687 )

Could you post your system specs so that we can help you better ?

when I playback movies that I have burned on dvd from downloads on the internet (p2p) I am getting a sound during playback that i can only describe as a loud buzzing or a horn sound. During the playback this will occur from 1 up to about 4 times and the duration will be from apprx 10 seconds to a minute. Only about half of my dvd burns are doing this. I am using a hp dvd 740 light scribe for burning and nero 6.0 that came with the unit. I suspect a copyright protection problem or perhaps a codec problem. Other than this problem the video and audio quality are fine. Does anyone out there have a solution for this. For sure I'm a newbie and this is beyond me. help please.thanks.

Hey guys,
you're kinda my last resort before I throw this computer out the window.
Dell XPS 9333, Windows 10
Ever since the windows 10 update, my sound card has not function properly. These are the things I've done:

Manually installed Realtek Drivers
Manually 'added legacy device' in Device manager
Rolled system back to Factory (Windows 8.1)
Updated the BIOS (A08) 

I had it working literally 15 minutes ago, set my laptop down on my coffee table to go swap my laundry - came back and the little x is now back on my speakers again.During that time the laptop didn't hibernate or sleep, nor was the lid shut. It literally just stopped working on it's own.
This laptop has lived the life of a desktop, it hasn't even been put in a backpack let alone jostled.
I'm about -this- close to saying forget Dell. I thought I was buying a quality product here, one I could do virtualization on however I've been stuck with this issue.

Any help y'all could provide would be greatly appreciated, I'm at my wits end here.

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?

I recently installed an I/O Magic dual format double layer internal DVD+RW+R. It came with a nero eXpress disc. After installing the suite on the disk, I can get my computer to view a DVD without error. However, the media stutters very badly. I remember when I had a laptop with a DVD drive it did the same thing. I never tried to solve the problem then, chalking it up to insufficient system resources. I do not feel that my system resources should play a significant factor with my current system; however, based on the system specs I listed at the beginning of this post.

My guess is that the DVD decoder installed on my system from the nero disc is inferior, or that something is not set up correctly. I remember knowing other people in the past that had similar issues, and they resolved it by finding a DVD decoder that worked for them.

To put it simply, what do I have to do to make my DVD drive something more than a glorified backup device? I have looked around for answers, and haven't had much luck. Any helpful input as to what I could do or where I should look to find the answer would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

A:DVD playback stuttering badly

Sounds like you were using Memorex, or some other cheaply made blanks.
Stick with name brands (Sony, Maxell, Fuji,) made in Japan, not Taiwan. Verbatim are good also. Verbatim is the only brand, made in Taiwan, that you should use.
Try another brand of blanks, and see if they do better. Also make sure you have the latest firmware for your burner.
Good luck!

I have recently formatted my computer.

Since having done so i have only installed basic programs such as Acrobat Reader, VLC etc.

When i try to play movies on either WM Player or VLC the playback is awful.

The sound tends to be out of sync and the video imaging stutters.

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

I thought this was a driver issue and so i have ran Uniblue Driver Scanner 2009, this updated a few drivers but has not resolved the issue.

Can anyone please offer some advice?

A:Stuttering sound on video playback

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

First step, update/reinstall the media player.

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

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

Hi, I had this strange problem ever since I use FireFox. Changing to version 3.6 didn't help.

Having this frozen screen (for 1 sec) every couple of seconds was very annoying while watching videoclips on YouTube for example.

Even when using the plain browser functions like scrolling, it lagged.

Just today I found something that finally helped me to get rid of that problem completely.
Open FF ► navigate to about:config ► put into the filter: browser.cache .memory.enable ► set to false by a double click ► restart FF

Hi, I'm sorry to say that, but it seems the problem has not disappeared really.

In the beginning it looked fine, but after a while it starts lagging again. That's very annoying, not only while watching video streamings, but also during everything else.
Even typing a comment like this, the delays appear constantly.

Well, I will research some more but if nothing helps, I'm going back to IE again.

Got an old Inspiron 1520 running a T7250 cpu w/ 3GB of ram, 8600M GT and a 5400RPM drive on Windows 7. Trying to playback a HD video at times causes it to skip a frame or two or make it look like its freezing a bit before it continues playing (not buffering). Video driver is the latest from Nvidia. I upgraded the wireless card to an N card.

Could I be looking at old hardware being a bottle neck? This happened from time to time and when I think it goes away after an update, it comes back.

Would I be better off running a newer dual core for smoother playback or just buy an SSD and image it over?

Since my online research did not come to any valid result, I would like to post my problem in all detail as it seems not a lot of people are experiencing this particular problem.

Description of the problem:
All media playback (audio & video) is stuttering as long as I am connected over wireless lan to a any network.
I tried WMP11, WinAmp, iTunes, VLC player etc. ? all the same. When I disconnect the wireless network connection, the stuttering stops immediately.
It sounds like there is something trying to re-connect all the time OR like the access to my harddrive is interrupted.
When the IP address is being renewed or I re-activate the wireless network adaptor again, the stuttering increases.
The most stuttering I get when I?m running the performance test by Vista.

What I tried so far:
I read some things about the MMCSS service by Vista.
I played around a little with the variables, but no changes after restart.
I de- and re-installed the audio driver and the W-lan driver. I re-installed WinAmp etc. No change
I ran anti-virus software and hijackthis. No specific results.
All updates for Vista are installed.

Subject says it. The sound driver for Windows 10, XPS 13 9333 has been buggy since the beginning! I had to reboot several times per week to "reenable sound". Errors are both complete crashes of the sound driver (the speaker symbol turns red and Windows 10 offers to try to fix the problem - well, of course that doesn't do anything...), but now also this:
At random intervals sound just stops. The volume can still be controlled, I can't see an error in the Windows event log (but I'm not sure I looked everywhere), device manager for Realtek High Definition Audio shows the driver as working. I hear a brief 1/10th second loud white noise as sound stops and that's it. I have to reboot.

Hello. I have some audio issues that are causing distortion whenever I watch videos on youtube or watch streams on twitch. I updated my flash and that didn't change anything. These issues just started within the last 3 days. I tried a system restore from two weeks ago and that didn't work. I double checked my sound drivers and they are up to date. This happens in both Firefox and Google Chrome. I started Firefox in safe mode with all addons disabled and it still happened. The distortion didn't really capture very well on the video even though I can hear it. You can hear it better in the beginning. And this happens on videos that are buffered, even if I wait 5 minutes, this still occurs. I can try a different video once I get back from school(have to leave right now) if you want to hear the distortion better.

Starting about a week ago whenever any audio is being played through my computer (speaker or headphone) I will hear a buzzing sound and occasionally the audio with skip. This happens weather I am playing audio that is being streamed from the internet or that is on my computer directly.

I have tried several things to fix this problem including installing all windows updates that are available as well as updating my audio drivers.

I am running windows 7 home premium 64 bit. My computer model is hp pavilion dv7t quad 6100 and I have IDT high definition audio codec driver version 6.10.6381.0 which my computer says is the latest driver version. Updating to this version has not solved the problem, however.

Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated. If there is additional info that is neccesary, please let me know and I will post it.

A:IDT High Def Audio, buzzing sound when playing any sort of audio.

Unplug the speakers from the PC and see if you still get the buzz with headphones. Some "buzz" problems can be related to "AC power ground loop" problems if some separately powered devices are connected.

Noise and skipping are problems that have been posted here before. There is no "one fix" for that. There are possible hardware problems, drivers (including video drivers), Interrupt issues, Wi Fi caused, etc.

Skipping can be because the other device that is on the shared Interrupt that the sound is on is interrupting the sound. Sound is always on a shared interrupt (IRQ) with a higher priority device. You can try this: go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for the IDT and then LEFT click "Uninstall". DO NOT check the box to uninstall the drivers. Then restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect the sound and reinstall it and some times put it on a different shared IRQ.

I have an XPS 13 9333 running Windows 10 64 bit.
With no specific reason (nothing new being installed), I too am now getting the "no audio output device detected".  I have:
1) Updated BIOS to most recent copy
2) Removed and reinstalled RealTek driver (both older versions and the current version...none of them have worked)
3) I have run the audio test in the diagnostics section and it worked fine.
4) I tried to restore to a restore point and it didn't help
I have seen multiple posts regarding this issue and tried the above actions based on what some people seem to work, but none of them have worked.  A $1,300 machine OEM software and audio doesn't work.  DELL SUPPORT... Please stand by your machine and assist me here (or anyone else).

I finally upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7 and almost went back shortly after finding out I could no longer organize or manually arrange my own personal files and/or folders but luckily I discovered an application called 'Folder Options X' which has re-enabled that feature for me so I'm happy to be upgrading .

I'm having a few issue's with my audio playback options. I'm using an audio application called SRS Audio Sandbox Version which doe's work with Windows 7 because when I first installed it was working perfect for a good few weeks time but recently I downloaded Realtek HD Audio Manager 2.57 to enable me to playback audio through my monitor speakers but it seems to have changed my audio setup ?

I have a 5.1 Logitech z906 speakers which take up green, black & yellow ports and my monitor has a green audio jack which I plugged in green and my Logitech's green jack I've plugged into Blue and used Realtek HD Manager to change Blue port to a Line Out option.

It appears to work accept when I do Speaker Playback Test clicking on diagram only left & right speakers playback noise though when I do it with headphones on all speakers playback noise: Left, Right, Center, Sub Rear Left & Rear Right not sure if that's normal ?

Under Sound proprieties my Realtek HD Audio is set as the default playback device in which both my speaker & monitor playback music but I need it to playback through SRS Audio Sandbox so I can manage and adjust the sound but whe... Read more

Reading some users comments on the Sandbox "audio enhancement" most comments are negative about this product. SRS Audio Sandbox - CNET Download.com

If it worked at one time and now does not, have you tried making it the default audio playback device rather than the RealTek? Or have you tried reinstalling it?

I'm having problems with buzzing and stuttering audio when watching or listening to music, with and without headphones

When I'm loading Civ 5, Sims 3 and Sims 2, I can hear loud buzzing/screeching form inside my case. It only occurs when first loading the games, not like when I'm actually in a household in Sims or moving units in Civ, and stops if I bring up another window when they're loading. As soon as a switch back to their window, though, the sounds start again. I'm well above required and recommended specs for the games that cause the buzzing, and I had the same problem on my old computer, which was also above recommended specs. Is my onboard sound trying to play some of the game's audio? Or is it just some weird error I have to deal with?

Check to see if your hard drive is mounted securely. Your hard drive will be under increased load when first loading games.

my problem is that when i play(mp3) my music from the computer it occasionally stutters, no matter if its windows media or i tunes. can a brtother get some help?

A:audio stuttering

0 > when did the problem seem to be begin?
1 > is it very slow to boot up?
2 > do programs open slowly?
3 > does the same behavior occur both on and off the internet. Or with no connection at all?
4 > does it matter how long the system has been on, and does a restart improve things?

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.

6 > If you open the Device Manager (run devmgmt.msc) and select the entry for IDE ATA/Atapi and select the Primary IDE > Advanced Settings, does it say the "current transfer mode" is Ultra DMA or PIO?

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.

*note that the above will not apply to RAID drive configurations.

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.

Hey guys this is really annoying me, whenever I am playing any video and/or audio file with any browser open and loading pages the audio stutters extremely badly, I use Chrome but also does it in Cyberfox, the players I have tried are VLC, Media Player Classic, Windows Media Player, Foobar 2000, Janngle, plus a few others.

It is driving me nuts as I can't listen or watch vids while browsing sites. Chrome use 100% of CPU on startup which to me is strange.

My PC stats are in my sig.

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?

A:Stuttering Audio

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

I'm using the headset Steelseries HV2, just today the audio started stuttering, and it's getting really annoying.
I've followed the sticky thread, toupdate my drivers.. no luck.

Any help would be great appreciated, thanks!

A:Audio Stuttering

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!)

This is not the first time I come here with the issue, it went away and came back again recently with no discernible cause as to what triggered it.
Audio cut out and stutters on all forms of media, and I just recently noticed, the computer freezes for an instant as well. By that I mean, when the audio does skip, its like the whole PC stutters at well (the video lags for a fraction, if the mouse is moving it sticks in one place for an instant, etc).
The problem is not persistent, it comes and goes at random intervals. If it is present, restarting the PC does not make a difference. Like I said, it seems to come and go sporadically.

Things I have already tried:
- Going into Device Manager and updating the sound driver (Realtek High Definition Audio version
- Uninstalling sound driver and rebooting to reinstall.
- Changing driver to default High Definition Audio Device
- Going into Sound>Properties>Enhancement and checking Disable All Enhancements (did this for Realtek and default driver)

With the new freezing of the actual PC, I am starting to think this is more than an audio problem.
Also note, the motherboard has been replaced, the video card has been replaced, all drives have been uninstalled, reinstalled, and updated MANY times, and a new sound card has been installed (all of this over the last 6 months, when the problem arose, but nothing has changed in the last 3 months since the problem disappeared and then reappeared today.).
I have no idea what is... Read more
