Audio buzzing problem when watching twitch.tv or Youtube

Q: Audio buzzing problem when watching twitch.tv or Youtube

I started having audio issues yesterday when I would watch twitch.tv or youtube and searched around trying to find answers for the problem. I updates all of my drivers and changed power management to see if it would fix the problem, but it didn't I saw a few answers to run LatencyMon to see what the problem was and this is the full report I have after running it. I have a Lenovo Y410P

Your system appears to be having trouble handling real-time audio and other tasks. You are likely to experience buffer underruns appearing as drop outs, clicks or pops. One or more DPC routines that belong to a driver running in your system appear to be executing for too long. One problem may be related to power management, disable CPU throttling settings in Control Panel and BIOS setup. Check for BIOS updates.
LatencyMon has been analyzing your system for 0:09:29 (h:mm:ss) on all processors.

Hard pagefaults are events that get triggered by making use of virtual memory that is not resident in RAM but backed by a memory mapped file on disk. The process of resolving the hard pagefault requires reading in the memory from disk while the process is interrupted and blocked from execution.

NOTE: some processes were hit by hard pagefaults. If these were programs producing audio, they are likely to interrupt the audio stream resulting in dropouts, clicks and pops. Check the Processes tab to see which programs were hit.

Preferred Solution: Audio buzzing problem when watching twitch.tv or Youtube

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Audio buzzing problem when watching twitch.tv or Youtube

The Latency Mon can overwhelm with data and sometimes hard to interpret (at least for me).

However, one thing I see reference is "High Definition Audio Bus driver, which suggests you do not have the correct sound driver installed. In most cases if the generic, basic function, Windows installed High Definition Audio Drivers (Codec) is installed that says the correct sound driver has not been installed. The High Definition Audio can also be installed for HDMI Audio (if you have HDMI) and that can also indicate the correct HDMI audio driver has not been installed. You specific model uses RealTek for the PC audio and can have either Intel or NVIDIA for HDMI (depending on optional video).

Considering the audio does not appear to have the correct drivers, install the proper drivers and see if that makes any difference as a first step.

Been having multiple BSODs lately and would like to figure out what exactly is happening. I have to point out that the triggers for BSODs are a bit different every time.

For example, I found a youtube video that had the option to pick 4p quality and pretty much instantly crashed the system and there for resulting into a BSOD.

The other BSODs are pretty much from watching a live stream on twitch.tv.

The following info is what I have collected according to the instructions:

- Windows 7
- x64
- Windows 7
- Retail
- ~4 years
- ~4 months

- i7 920 @ 2.66GHz
- ATI Radeon HD4890 1GB Vapor-X
- Corsair 650 WATT

If something is missing, please let me know.


PS. I have some additional log to add if that's OK: click

Hey guys,

I've been having BSOD's once to twice a week since I upgraded to Windows 10 around 10 months ago. I also installed a new CPU cooler (Kraken x61) at the same time so it's hard to isolate it to windows 10. My PC also freezes sometimes too and I have to restart, it's not heat related though as my processor never really goes above 40 degrees Celsius.

The BSOD's and screen freezes have started happening way more frequently recently and WhoCrashed ​always tells me it's likely to do with a driver. I've tested all my drivers on many occasions and windows device manager tells me everything is up to date. The drivers AMD say are for Windows 10 for my motherboard (Sabertooth 990FX) are the same as the windows 7 drivers, so maybe my motherboard is the issue.

The common BSOD's I get:


A common example of my most frequent BSOD:

I get random 0x0[...]0124 bsod when gaming or watching youtube/twitch. This started after I upgraded to windows 10 (I also bought a new GPU, but had no issue for a month before I started getting theses BSOD), but I tried downgrading to windows 7 to no avail (fresh install). If anyone has any clue on what the error is with the attached dump file, feel free to help me.

What I know the problem is not:
-Temperature (cpu at 50 and gpu at 80 under load)
-Overclocking (no overclocking done)
-Ram (ran memtest)
-Hard drive (tried on an HDD and SSD that had no problems in the past and got BSOD on both)

Thanks for the help in advance!

it looks like the processor, check the processor drver and see what happens, also i'm pretty sure the BIOS is outdated, check that as well.

I recently have been trying to stream on twitch, and it works for like 30 minutes-1 hour then my computer crashes.. Any help would be greatly appreciated, really want to start streaming seriously and on a schedule but can't due to this unfortunate issue that frequently occurs. I have provided my system specs on my profile under the tab "System Spec" if you need to see my setup. I will provide a screenshot of my recent crashes, and will provide them here, but I recommend looking at the screenshot as it provides a lot more information regarding the crashes. The Bug Check String that says the reason of the crashes are: SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA, DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED, ATTEMPTED_WRITE_TO_READONLY_MEMORY. Here is the screenshot I promised Screenshot Screenshot

I was half asleep, just noticed the sound loop. Tried to read the bsod while it created the dump in my half dead state, but i'm not entirely sure i got the right code. I fished it out of the event log that this was the code provided. This is the first bsod i've ever had with this system which is ~2 years old. And i've not had a single issue since i uninstalled windows 10 ~2 months ago.

So i'm not even sure there is a problem, might've been a fluke. Ideas ?

So I got the card "working" as far as I can tell. I did put in an RMA but a day before they responded I decided to do a clean install of everything. Updated drivers,firmware ect. Have a feeling my motherboard pci-e slot was messed up. Weird that it did it.

I am pretty sure the card is functioning fine now. But to be sure wanted to find the cause of this NEW BSOD and make sure it is not the graphics card. If it is, going to probably RMA the card.

Hi, well its not realy a BSOD, BUT A FREEZE

Hellow there, after a long time of ignoring this problem, i'm so done with it and tired of it, so here we go, ill try to explane it.

My Problem:
When i am playing a game like Hearthstone or World of warcraft on my Right monitor, and watching a stream/youtube vid on my left screen, suddenly my computer freezes. Afther that i need to manualy shut down my computer (pushing the off button) and reboot it.

The last 3 times it happened i was Playing Hearthstone and World of Warcraft.
Just a few moments ago it also happens when i was watching a youtube vid on my left screen (21inch) and watching my facebook on my right screen (24inch)


The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

Just a little background. This system is about a month old and has been running stable using 1333mhz ram. Today I purchased some G.Skill 1866mhz and installed it, and have been getting some weird issues that I did not have before. I ran Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool and it came back with no errors. The BSOD's that I have seen have been Memory_Management , System Service Exception Win32.sys and Critcal Process Died. I had no BSODS before I installed this ram. Could it be a voltage related problem in the BIOS? I also have the CPU overclocked to 4.2ghz as well. Just looking for any answers.

Let's start with my PC specs:

MOBO: Dell 0ry007
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 @ 3.16 GHz
GPU: Gigabyte Geforce GTX 750 TI OC 2 Gb
RAM: 4x1 Gb of Geil DDR2-800
Storage: 1x WD Black 500GB and 1x Kingston SSDNOW V300 120 Gb
PSU: Antec Basiq 450W

So i made quite a bit of troubleshooting.

First i tried my RAM memory sticks to see if they are faulty.I tested them with Windows Memory Diagnostic first and got no problems, then I tried MemTest 86 (ran for 2 hours) and i got the same result: No problems.

Then I checked my SSD (on that i have the OS) with chkdsk /f - got 0 errors ,then tried sfc /scannow - got 0 problems, and then tried CrystalDisk - got a 100% healthy SSD and a Good HDD

Then I thought my PSU fails (at that moment i had the original ACbel 300 W) and changed with this Antec Basiq 450 W.

Then I tried the GPU and here are some question marks (??????????).I ran furmark 5 times (4 times ran for 30 minutes and 1 time for 1 hour) with Xtreme Burn-In setting, 8xMSAA and max resolution (1440x900) and the card run at 62C average temperature and never crashed ,just the fans got louder,which is normal.But here is the thing sometimes i get BSOD's caused by dxgmms1.sys and nvlddmkm.sys ,so DirectX and Nvidia Driver.

Tested the CPU with prime 95 and nothing happened also tested with Furmark -CPU Burn and nothing happened aswell but the temperature was 65-68C which is a bit HOT but the CPU can handle it.

I was wondering if someone here could help me out. I've been having various BSOD's whilst watching gaming streams on twitch.tv. The BSOD's do not happen on launch, but after the stream has been playing for some time. They also ONLY happen whilst watching a stream. They do not occur doing any other memory intensive activity. I'm a bit perplexed why this is happening.

I've used a program called BlueScreenViewer to look into the problem. I've had the following error messages:

Apparently all of these BSOD's have been caused by ntkrnlpa.exe (NT Kernel & System) and halmacpi.dll (Hardware Abstraction Layer DLL).

I've also ran a program called memtest86 3 days ago. This actually did pick up on many memory errors during Test #6, the Block Test. I then proceeded to remove what I thought was the faulty memory. Memtest86 then passed the Block Test. I thought the problem had been resolved, as I had not received a BSOD at all following this. However, I have just now received yet another BSOD 3 days later and it seems the problem has returned.

EDIT: I have just ran memtest86 once again. The errors have now returned. I got 6000 errors on Test #6 (Block Move Test), 3000 errors on Test #8 (Random number sequence) and 1 error on Test #9 (Modulo 20, Random pattern).

I've attached the minidump files.

Any ideas?

A:BSOD whilst watching Twitch.tv streams

The dump files are irrelevant at this moment in time if you are getting errors in Memtest86.

You'll need to swap your RAM sticks around to determine whether or not it's the RAM sticks or motherboard DIMM slots.

If the output is like this then you have bad RAM so the stick(s) need replacing.

TestSlot 1Slot 2RAM 1ErrorErrorRAM 2GoodGood
If the output is like this then you should replace the motherboard, however you can leave that DIMM slot empty although it's not advised to use a system with a faulty motherboard.

Hello, this is my first post, and I created this account today because I have been having a frustratingly enormous amount of BSODing happening to my computer lately. This has been going on for a period of about a couple weeks now, with an increasing frequency as time goes on. The problem is that I cannot figure out exactly what causes them because I get different error messages almost every time when my computer BSODs.

Here's a list of them with how common they reoccur for each time I get a BSOD:
2. PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA (Npfs.SYS), also (dxgkrnl.sys) - (very common)
3. IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL - (not as common)
4. DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (Wdf01000.sys) - (not as common)
5. SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION (win32kfull.sys) - (not very common)
6. BAD_POOL_CALLER - (only happened once)
7. APC_INDEX_MISMATCH - (only happened once)

I have pinpointed the triggers of these BSODs to activities such as:
1. Playing games, particularly multiplayer, like: CS:GO, H1Z1, The Culling. When this happens, either my computer will BSOD directly from my game, or my game will crash me to my desktop, and then my PC eventually BSODs if I persist to play the games.
2. Watching Twitch.tv. When this happens, Google Chrome will display the "aw snap" page and all of my pages in Chrome will crash, but not Chrome itself, and then I will almost always immediately get a BSOD after a few seconds of that screen appearing.

I've been suffering BSoDs relatively frequently for a while now, in my perception mostly when watching streamed flash video such as from YouTube or Twitch.tv.
Multiple system wipes/fresh installations have not resolved the issue.
RAM replacement seemed to allow me to catch a break at first, but BSoDs returned after few days of calm and I suffered 3 of them during the last 2 days. Western Digital Data Lifeguard Diagnostics and MemTest (ran multiple copies simultaneously for 8 hours) returned no errors.

According to the dump files, BSoDs were caused by a combination of ntoskrnl.exe and dxgmms1.sys.
Again, in my imagination most of them they seem to coincide with streaming flash video via Twitch.tv, which I watch using multiple instances of Google Chrome and Firefox. Although that might be completely unrelated.

As a layman, I'm puzzled, and thus turn to you for your insight and help.

Once Daemon tools is gone please download and run this tool:

When the tool runs if the uninstall button is grayed out your done and can close the window. If it is not please click it and allow the tool to do its job. DO NOT click the install button it will install a driver known to cause BSODs.

Also uninstall this program it is likely doing more harm than good:

In addition to title info, my computer only crashes while watching the stream and gaming at the same time. If I do either independently I don't crash ever it seems like. Same for gaming and streaming my game from Xsplit or FFSplit. Since I can do either independently it isn't really a pressing issue, but one I would really like to get sorted out as this indicates something is wrong with my computer. This is my first post so please let me know if I compiled the dump file incorrectly. Thank you in advance!

A brief description on what I was doing during the time of when the kernel-power event 41 happened. Just booted the pc up and began to browse the net and have twitch.tv on as I was catching up on emails. Then suddenly pc just rebooted itself.

So far i have completed;

Virus scan - no virus detected
Malware scan - no malware detected
Ram test - pass
Checked the cpu and gpu temperature on idle and load (its not overheating)
PC is NOT OC'd
Checked the PSU fan to see if its running. (working fine)

Im confused to why my PC has rebooted itself in the space of 5 times in the space of 6-7 hours. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I updated my hardware(New CPU, GPU, and Motherboard) recently this past Wednesday and after everything is installed and running it seems to run fine. I attempted some Overclocking of my CPU and got my first BSOD(Unfortunately Windows did not save the dump file of this event) so I stopped and changed it back to normal thinking that caused it. The first BSOD happened while I was watching a stream on Twitch tv and it happened again a second time later while I was watching a Twitch stream. I have included my zip file with current information. Could it have something to with my GPU drivers since it happened during the same type of situation? I have the most recent driver installed 320.18 installed.

It does seem that the graphics card driver is a possible cause at the moment, have you tried rolling back to the older WHQL driver? I do feel that the driver being blamed, could be due to the alterations made to the registry by the registry cleaner you have installed.

I also get a LOT of errors and failed installs on my windows updates. And I have tried re-installing windows several times. I come here on a last leg.

Hi p00ned4dis, welcome .

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint. Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress. - H2SO4

The bug checks are consistent on failing to read from the L1 cache,
which more often than not spells a faulty CPU other possibilities are the motherboard / PSU.
Has anything changed / happened before you started getting the bug checks?
Since you already tested the hardware, do you have another system you can test with?

I am interested in the Voltage readings;
Download HWinfo and post a Screenshot of the sensors window, one at idle and another while putting load on the PC using Prime95 for the CPU side and Furmark for the GPU.Before running Prime95 make sure to enable Round-off checking (see 1st post under the tutorial).

First of all, hello! I am new to the forums, and new to trying to fix a computer I built

I am not totally dumb, but I am having a really hard time with this PC pretty much since I built it. I have had a bunch of people I thought were good with computers (and probably really are) look at it and no one has really been able to get the problems to go away. One of the issues I had was a variety of BSOD errors, apparently my PC was running HOT for a while and now with a new water cooling system in place it is fine, but I am still getting BSOD errors. The most recent one was 0x00000050.

I ran the program the forums suggested and have attached the zipped files. If anyone out there is smarter than me and can help me through this I would be insanely grateful. I have no problems removing/re-installing hardware or running w/e programs etc. I am just at my wits end, and short of buying a whole new computer I no longer know what to do

Thank you in advance to anyone who is willing and able to help!

A:BSOD watching Twitch and updating Starcraft 2 error 0x00000050

Hmm, I'm seeing a lot of issues with Windows files and services either being corrupted or the memory they're working with is being corrupted.

How hot was the system running before you installed a new cooler? There's a possibility that permanent damage has been inflicted on one or more computer components due to the intense heat.

I reckon we do a few hardware tests:

RAM: Memtest86+ - 7+ passes
CPU: Prime95 - Torture Test; Blend; overnight (9+ hours)
Drives: Seatools - All basic tests aside from the Fix all, Long generic or the advanced ones. Also provide us a screenshot of CrystalDiskInfo output.

All of these are included in the UBCD if you prefer a Live CD environment (which is the best environment to test hardware on). Note that Prime95 currently does not work on the latest version of UBCD due to a bug. Also, please provide us temps/voltages using HWInfo with Sensors only option checked. Log two 30-minute instances: one for idle, and one for high load. If you can get the system to crash during high load logging, that's even better. Last, make sure that when running Prime95 that you check temps during first 30minutes or so to see if temps are stable. Prime95 runs very hot so be sure your cooling can handle it before letting it run extensively.

You may also want to just try reinstalling Windows (after you do the hardware tests). There's the possibility Windows didn't install all that well, and there's tons of issues popping up as a result.

I have a PC running XP, all the updates are in.

When I am watching videos on Youtube, if I move a window cursor to read the comments (or any other text on that screen) while the video is playing, the sound stops for a second or two, and then restarts. If I move the cursor VERY SLOWLY, then the sound does not stop. But if I move it rapidly, the sound stops for a brief moment and starts again. It is very annoying and it does that every time. I remenber about 6 months ago, I didn't have this problem.

What happened ? Any suggestions ?

This is overclocking software and can lead to system instability and BSOD's. Please reset all components to their stock speeds and then remove the software.

Daemon Tools/Alcohol %

Start Menu\Programs\DAEMON Tools Lite Public:Start Menu\Programs\DAEMON Tools Lite Public
Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Win7 systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although we have seen dtsoftbus01.sys blamed on several occasions). Please uninstall the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration): DuplexSecure - FAQ

As an alternative, many people recommend the use of Total Mounter or Magic ISO

Hi i have been experiencing BSODs on my computer. They seem to happen somewhat randomly but twitch.tv almost always causes bsod. My computer is a custom build by my friend. Is it possible that there is bad connection somewhere which is causing these BSODs? How do i find it?

Im not expert with computers please help.

A:BSODs @ various situations (Youtube, gaming, twitch)

Hello and welcome Naktos well you have sort of half answered yourself mate the twitch.tv I have no idea without go look for it as to what it s but seems to me it is a suspect in your situation.

I am not real sure of the dump files either it will take someone who knows more than I to check those out.

I suppose you could start off running these in safe mode if necessary if only to eliminate the bleeding obvious

I'm currently having a lot of trouble here viewing streaming videos off youtube and dailymotion style sites.

Youtube is less of an issue. the videos load. but rather slowly.

Daily motion however i have problems with as the videos some times do not load at all. or if they do like youtube they are VERY choppy.

another thing i noticed was with youtube the progress bar does not move accross, it just remains grey.. then when the video has finished (or its gotten part way and given up) it shows the bar as full.

Now i was wondering if anyone had any ideas why this might be. I just reformated my computer (problem was occuring before i did it, and now after) i have a fair decent internet connectiong (1500kbps) and these are videos that i can pretty much stream, or watch with a short amount of time on a 512kbps account at my fathers house..

thanks heaps for any advice

A:problem watching streaming videos youtube/dailymotion so on

Check the settings in the browser...especially the security settings . And the windows security settings in xp.

For a while now I have had many BSOD over the past few months, but have never really looked into really solving them.

Partly because I have gotten to use to them happening and that with a Solid state drive I can reboot in little to no time.

Some computer specs:

-Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

-Intel i5 2500K OC'd to 4.5 Ghz @ 1.272V (done all the stress testing over 8 hours and no errors or temp issues) Cooler: Coolermaster 212 Hyper Evo.

-OCZ solid state 480 GB HD for Windows 7+ applications, and 1TB + 2TB HDD for storage .

-AMD ATI Radeon 7870 HD, up-to-date drivers.

-Asus P8Z 68-V LX Motherboard.

-Dual monitor setup, HDMI + Vga, both 21.5".

When do the BSOD most occur?

I have noticed that BSODs mostly occurs when I'm:

- Playing League of Legends,
- Having multiple windows of Chrome open with Twitch streams on one side, and YouTube videos on the other.
- And when I'm using Open Broadcaster Software for streaming. Running many applications and windows for mic audio, twitch notifications etc.

The DMP is corrupt so i cant say much, however here is somethings to try as your bugcheck is a 0x124:

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint. Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.

Generic "Stop 0x124" Troubleshooting Strategy:1) Ensure that none of the hardware components are overclocked. Hardware that is driven beyond its design specifications - by overclocking - can malfunction in unpredictable ways.

2) Ensure that the machine is adequately cooled. If there is any doubt, open up the side of the PC case (be mindful of any relevant warranty conditions!) and point a mains fan squarely at the motherboard. That will rule out most (lack of) cooling issues.

3) Update all hardware-related drivers: video, sound, RAID (if any), NIC... anything that interacts with a piece of hardware. It is good practice to run the latest drivers anyway.

4) Update the motherboard BIOS according to the manufacturer's instructions. Their website should provide detailed instructions as to the brand and model-specific procedure.

5) Rarely, bugs in the OS may cause "false positive" 0x124 events where the hardware wasn't complaining but Windows thought otherwise (because of the bug). At the time of writing, Windows 7 is not known to suffer ... Read more
