Dell Inspiron 15r audio stuttering, or freezing briefly, during games and video

Q: Dell Inspiron 15r audio stuttering, or freezing briefly, during games and video

I have this issue where sometimes when playing a game, whenever it's about to load a new audio asset, the game briefly freezes. Like for instance, I'm playing the Brutal Doom mod, and it will go fine for a little while but whenever I"m about to for example fire a new weapon, it will freeze itself for a second to seemingly load the new audio file for the gun being shot. There are other games that do this as well. Also, sometimes when watching a video on YouTube, I get audio stutter for a few seconds.

I've done scans with Avast!, Malware Bytes, and Spybot and so far nothing conclusive has come up. I ran the Intel Driver Update program and updated several drivers, but that hasn't fixed it. I also tried disabling Andrea ST but that didn't fix it neither. I've had this laptop for several years now, and it never did this until recently.

I have a Dell Inspron n5110, running Windows 7 64-bit, as the title says, and I have an issue where during games, at least slightly intensive ones, whenever it's about to play a new audio bit, it briefly freezes for about half a second. Say I'm playing Brutal Doom for instance and I decide to switch to a new gun, the game will freeze for a split second before playing the sound and continuing with the game.
 
Sometimes also while playing something from YouTube, it will also briefly freeze, causing the audio to also get locked. It only happens for a second and I can still move my mouse around, but I don't think I could actually interact with anything.
 
I've had this Laptop since December 2011. I'm aware of course of Windows Rot but I'm wondering if there's other possibilities. I'm doing virus and malware scans but thus far nothing conclusive has come up from those.

I got my Dell Inspiron 5767 about 6 months ago. At first everything was alright, up until 1 month ago when the mouse and audio started stuttering. After some net research, I found out that the Dell software for updating drivers (basically Dell Support) was the main cause and i uninstalled it. After that everything was great, until yesterday. Randomly it started stuttering again. But kind of stopped when I connected the power cable. So it calmed down, and half an hour ago I just closed the lid for 10 minutes and when I opened it it stutters again.Its very frustrating that I can't find any solution anywhere. I did the diagnostics and everything passed.Any suggestions would be great!

Hello,
I have bought this laptop about 2 months ago. Since i bought it, I have noticed that it's performance is not what i should expect.
I mean, i can be in Google Chrome viewing a page, and in the moment i scroll using my mouse, the laptop like freezes for a milisecond and then continues. Same happens when playing videogames, i can be playing at low/ultra details, 60+ frames per second, but every now and then i get a frame drop and then it goes back to where it was before, it's super annoying and shouldn't be happening.
I always thought it was something with the game, that it was not well optimised but it seems to be the computer.
Things i have done:
1. I reinstalled Windows 10 using the software provided by Microsoft.
2. All my drivers are up to date
What could it be? my laptop specs are:
6th Generation Intel Core i7-6700HQ Processor (6M Cache, up to 3.50 GHz)]NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M 4GB GDDR58GB Single Channel DDR3L 1600MHz (8GBx1)1TB (5400rpm) Hybrid HDD with 8GB Flash
All these things occur with the laptop plugged or not, it doesn't matter. Gaming, i have used Balanced and High Performance battery mode but i don't see any difference. This has happened to me for example in CS:GO, LoL, World of Warships, etc.

This is a benchmark i did with HDTune: http://imgur.com/a/wf68f

A:Dell Inspiron 7559 video stuttering

When you are saying that it is stuttering, does it do this all the time or is it something that will be working and then you get a quick stutter and then things return to normal?  If this is happening, it's most likely just a point in time where the files that the processor needs to access files haven't been loaded into RAM yet.  Your processor then has to wait for the HDD to load the file and continue on from there.  Does Google Chrome do this all the time?  Again, when it first boots or if there is something that computer has to load on the webpage such as Flash or anything like that, it can cause a temporary delay in the time that it is loading.  If it's doing it constantly then it might be something to look at, but once in awhile, it's not uncommon for this to happen during loading.  5400RPM is slowest speeds for HDD and it can cause your computer to have to wait for loading here and there.

I have an Inspiron 3650 6th Generation Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700 Processor 8M Cache and Radeon R9 360 video card
About 2 weeks ago the computer crashed and the only way to get it running again was to tell it to re-install windows.  Once that was done I also did the following:
1) Update Windows 10 to latest patches
2) Go to AMD and upload the latest video drivers since WIndows didn't acknowledge that a new driver was available.
3) Went to the Dell site and downloaded and installed all of the latest upgrades.
4) Upgraded to the latest BIOS.

Even after these steps my computer now stutters during games that use to run before the crash.  By "stuttering" I mean the game would appear to freeze for a second or two, then the screen would flash, then the game would continue.  After 3 or 4 of these stutters the game will crash.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what could be wrong?  Everything appears to be upgraded to the latest drivers and such, but the computer isn't running like it use to.  If I can't fix this I may just have to send it back under it's warranty.  I'd rather fix it and understand what the problem was rather than sending it back to Dell. 
Thank you

Wasn't sure what this could be related to. If this is in the wrong section just let me know.

Well, this started about a week ago. I thought nothing about it. I thought it may have been a bad driver. So I updated my graphics driver, stuttering is still there. So next I tried to update my hard drive firmware, but the stuttering is still there. Next I tried, to update my bios, that didn't help it. Any ideas?

Hi,

I would suggest you to check the performance in “Safe mode with networking”.

Run the Windows Audio Playback Diagnose and Repair from the below MS FIX-IT: http://support.microsoft.com/mats/AudioPlayback/

You can even try running Microsoft Fix IT’s from the URL mentioned below according to the issue:
http://support.microsoft.com/fixit/

If this issue started occurring after doing some recent software changes on your computer, then I would suggest you to restore your system back to a date when it was working fine. System Restore will affect Windows system files, programs, and registry settings only.

Hope this helps.

Hey all, I've run into a few problems here. I'm an avid player of Neverwinter Nights, EverQuest, and EQ2. And recently I've hit some... issues.

Two nights ago on EQ2, I was running through a zone, when my screen blipped. it froze for about five seconds, flickered black just before un-freezing, and my toon's pet would be a few yards ahead. Well I figured it was just some weird game glitch or lag or something, since the zone in question isn't exactly well-known for its stability. So I log out and reboot.

I can't even get into the game. It halts at the character select, and the opening screen resembles what I can best describe as "polygon explosion". Just a mass of color and triangles. I bluescreen after a while, it tells me that an error involving nv4_disp.dll resulted in an infinite loop.

So the next thing I do after I reboot is run avg, it finds nothing out of the ordinary, then I run ad-aware and spybot, both of whom just pick up your every day "you've won a million dollars!" type spyware. So I shrug and fire up WMP to enjoy some music. Well I have the visualization active on WMP, and... well, same thing that was happening in the game, only five times worse, flickering, stuttering, freezing on and off. I eventually wrestled it to the ground, uninstalled it, reinstalled it, and slapped a new skin on that works just fine. I then went to nvidia.com and downloaded / installed the 77.77 drivers.

I recently bought an Inspiron 9300. I am having problems running games on it because there is a lot of stuttering. Stuttering seems to happen more frequently when there is a lot of sound going on. It is so bad, that I can't play any of my games. I noticed that my video card and sound card are sharing the same IRQ. Could this be the cause of the stuttering? Also, in dxdiag, the test sound button gives me an error after testing the software buffers saying that my sound card does not support hardware buffering. My problem only occurs in games. Listening to mp3, or playing movies does not induce stuttering.

What I've tried so far:
- Updating to the latest Dell video and sound card drivers.
- Installling other video drivers like Xtreme-G.
- Flashing the bios to the most rercent version.
- Switching from "ACPI Uniprocessor PC" to "Standard PC". This one did not work because the PCI Express Root Port device was giving an error about not being able to free enough resources. Windows was not able to detect my video card because of this.
- Disabling hardware sound acceleration.

The only solution to the stuttering problem right now is to deactivate the sound card. Once I do this, the stuttering is gone in all of my games. I thought about purchasing a PCMCIA sound card but I heard that it didn't work with internal speakers.

I really need help on this one. I'm considering returning my laptop to Dell since I have three weeks to return it in case I&... Read more

This system is quite old. So I am just refurbishing it and selling it at cost to someone who needs it.

Here are the specs:

Win2k Pro SP4
Dell Inspiron 7500
512MB RAM (maxed out; 2 X 256)
433Mhz CPU
DirectX 7.0 (4.07.00.0700) [Not sure if this video card is compatible with 9.0c]
Video: 4MB ATI RAGE Mobility P/M AGP 2X(A21/2)
Flash Player 10 for the browser

Win2k had all of the drivers, so I didn't bother downloading any from Dell. At least not until I had it up and running and tested the video with YouTube. The video drivers are fine on the computer except on YouTube. Actually, I can't say that as I have not tried playing any other video on this system yet.

When I play any video on YouTube, it does one of the following:

1. Doesn't play (just see the thumbnail image)
2. Shows just a black screen
3. Shows the top half OK but the bottom half looks like all of the color was smudged
4. Shows the thumbnail image normally, but doesn't play the video. Then that image jumps in to the upper left corner of the video screen and becomes an even smaller image. Then it switches back to showing the thumbnail image normally again.

This system is clean, in case you're wondering about spyware or viruses.

It seems like it has something to do with either the video drivers, the video card (which is definitely lacking), the fact that there was no chipset drivers to install, or because it only has DirectX 7.0.

Hi.

I have been working on a Dell Inspiron 531S and am unable to get the video, and now audio, drivers loaded and working correctly. Here?s the deal:

According to the Dell tag# info online, this cpu uses either the onboard Nvidia nforce 6150SE n430 video card or an ATI 1300 Pro. There is no external video card so the Nvidia should be right. This is confirmed by programs like HWinfo32. However, someone did install ATI catalyst software at some earlier point.

At first, only the video card driver was not loaded properly and so Vista (Home Premium 32-bit) was in VGA-compatible mode. I tried to load NVIDIA Nforce 258.96 WHQL drivers for Vista 32-bit, which completed without errors. Upon rebooting, though, I could see in Device Manager that the drivers didn?t take. I have also tried Dell?s recommended R166208 (an executable that loads Nvidia?s MCP61 ver.A01 drivers) and no matter what I do, Device Manager says I now have an ?unknown device? or a VGA-compatible display adapter. Unloading and reinstalling did not help. I noticed SP2 was not loaded so tried installing it to see if that would help. It loaded no problem, but then I saw (as another update) a Realtek audio driver update. I let it load and now have no audio.

I have tried both Dell?s recommended Realtek driver (R180772, which is for the ALC888 HD audio device and loads Realtek?s R1.85 audio drivers) and a newer R2.51 version for Vista that I got from Realtek?s site. Both install ... Read more

The Problem
I am having video stuttering for the duration of 0,5s - 1s exactly every 60s on all games and videos. During the stuttering the framerate drops significantly and rises back to normal immediately after that. The mouse cursor remains unaffected during the stuttering. CPU and GPU usage and temperatures remain normal during the stutter. The Process "System interrupts" raises from 0,1% CPU usage to around 0,5% during this. Sometimes the 60s-interval-stuttering disappears without a cause, but most of the time it persists.

I have also noticed that the same kind of stuttering happens 5-6 times in quick succession when I plug in my mouse or keyboard or plug out my mouse (plugging out keyboard doesn?t trigger it). This kind of stutter also happens 3 times when i Connect my Wireless XBox360 Controller and 1 time when i disconnect it. This happens across all USB ports equally. I have tried plugging out all USB connections. The every-60s stuttering still happens.

The second observation isn?t really a problem, but due to similar stuttering nature they might be connected.
When did the problem start?
My PC started to work less smoothly over the time (some components are 7 years old), so i decided to format my Windows 7-SSD and install Windows 10 Pro freshly on it about a month ago. I have also bought a new PSU around this time, because my old one?s fan degraded due to age.

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".

Howdy!

The problem is my Dell Inspiron 600m laptop running Windows XP Home has a weird symptom that just started up. Literally, every second my system has a brief pause or stutter for just a brief moment, like clockwork. From playing a game or video, to just moving a window around on the screen, or even just moving the mouse about, every second it'll just pause or come close to pausing, and then jump to where it should be. Almost like every second some background process is briefly using all the cpu.

Here are the series of events, and then I'll give some more details of the problem itself.

Friday my laptop was running just fine. I upgraded a game I had (Neverwinter Nights from "Gold" to "Diamond"), and played it and watched some videos, and still was working fine (other than some normal slow downs in graphic intense parts of the game, which seem pretty normal).

I hadn't rebooted in a few days, and figured I would as I was thinking of playing my game some more, and a fresh boot would make it run the smoothest.

Well some windows updates were waiting to be installed, so before rebooting I did them. As I recall they were and IE security update, a windows media security update, a number of misc security updates, and the malicious software remover utility.

I did that, and just for the sake of completeness decided to run an ad-aware scan. That just removed some firefox bookmarks and a whole buncha cookies. Didn't find anything else.

I recently put together a HTPC out of some old parts, but when I try to stream videos from Hulu, Neftlix, and the likes, I get very poor performance. Netflix is watchable, with only occasional freezing, but the audio is slightly off sink from the video. Hulu on the other hand is extremely slow, and in full screen the video becomes a slideshow. Through the task manager, I can see that while streaming from Netflix I get around 60-70% CPU usage, while from Hulu I get a flat out 100%. I have installed available updates, including the most recent nVidia drivers, and flash 10.1, which is supposed to have GPU acceleration. Neither of those helped in the slightest bit.

Here are the specs:

Commell LV-670 ITX motherboard
Celeron 2.6
1 Gb DDR
GeForce 8400gs
Windows Server 2008

I know this is not a very powerful system, but it handles DVDs relatively smoothly, though there is still high CPU usage with them. I have tried multiple browsers as well, and have noticed no difference between them.

Any ideas on how to get GPU accelerated flash working, or how to improve streaming performance in general?

Hi, my computer will always randomly freeze for 1-3 seconds when I do normal tasks (like using chrome and skype). The freezes cause audio and mouse to also freeze during that time.

I tried to swap CPUs, get a new mobo, use different RAM and nothing works. I've got this problem since Windows 8. But its been progressively worse. Now I also sometimes have problems POSTing and the display will turn black when I boot up to the login screen.

I used latencymon to check which drivers are causing the problem and when I disable my GPU drivers the stuttering is gone. I don't have any of these problems when using DirectX apps. My GTX 660 has the latest drivers installed.

Hey guys, my computer started stuttering while watching videos and playing games. Videos on YouTube, as well as videos I watch using VLC have begun stuttering to the point that they're almost unwatchable. I also noticed a lot of lag/stuttering when playing video games. It's almost impossible to play any games now too. I've checked for any software issues (updated drivers, including graphics drivers, scanned for viruses, and scanned for malware) and I've freed up some space on my SSD. None of that helped, so I'm assuming it's a hardware issue. I've been out of the computer fixing game for a while, so I'm not sure what tools would be best to check my hardware. Is seatools still a thing? Can I run chkdsk on my ssd? Would sfc /scannow do anything? Is memtest86+ still a thing? What's that bootable flash drive tool called? Is there any way to test my graphics card without involving the HD or RAM in order to rule that out? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Help guys..I don't know what the problem could be. I'd be doing something on my computer when all of a sudden, everything freezes and if I'm playing music, it's non stop stuttering until I turn it off manually. I just recently finished troubleshooting the laptop shutting off by cleaning the fan and removing the dust thus preventing the overheating which was shutting it off. But a few days after successfully dealing with that, this problem shows up. HELP ME FIGURE THIS OUT!

I'll post a Hijack This Log

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

Now let me start from the beginning. For the past 5 years I have been using the same 80G HD without problems, but lately it has just been getting full and staying full so i purchased a new Samsung 320G drive. Since i only have 1 sata cable i took my old drive out (didnt format it) then put the new one in and installed windows vista 32 bit. (same as old drive) Got it running and started installing drivers including sound card and video card. After finishing this I transferred files off my my external drive over to this new drive then once finished started playing a video game (world of warcraft) and noticed stuttering in audio and visual. I spent several hours trying to fix this and came to the conclusion it had to be the HDD since my old one this problem wasnt accuring.

So I took this drive out, put my old one back in and of course no problems. No audio or video issues so i figured id just reformat and just start from scatch with the old drive. So once finished i went through my norm and started installing drivers... then boom its doing it again. so now its not a HDD issue and I once again have the new Samsung drive in.

Through trial and error I have come to the conclusion that the issue does not begin until I install my graphics drivers. Geforce 9800 GT. I have tried the newest and oldest drivers to no prevail, but again I had these drivers working on the old HDD before reformatting that drive.

AMD 3500+ 939
6600GT pci-e
200 gig SATA drive <----DMA is enabled in bios
1 gig ram
Nforce4 MSI K8N SLI mobo


the problem i am having is this, any AVI (Weather it be divx or whatever), and mp3 i play on my computer has weird split second pauses or stuters through it. It doesn't do it 100% of the time. About once or twice every 5 minutes.

I am running Win Pro x64, but i have the latest x64 nforce drivers for all hardware. When i upgraded, i originally bought a Gigabyte nforce4 board (basically the equivalent of what i have now) and it was doing the exact same thing, thats why i swapped it for the MSI!

So i'm leaning toward it being a software issue. I've tried different codec packs (not that they should effect mp3 playback)

I've tried different ram.

I've scoured the net for ppl having the same problem, there is ppl having similar problems but no one having an identical problem.

I'm pretty sure the same prob was happening in windows 32 bit when i had it on aswell but i'm not 100% on that.

any help would be GREATLY appreciated. really want to get this thing figured out as i'm really keen on music, and there's nothing worse than having a favourite song stutter on you!

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

A:Audio and video stuttering!!

CAUTION: I offer advanced settings!
It sounds like an IRQ conflict.

When hardware blocks shared IRQ resources,
bus mastering is supposed to take care of that.

On a desktop station, the answer is easy... assign
a different address or use another PCI slot.

With a laptop, that's another story.

You can still force IRQ per device, though,
if you install the STANDARD HAL.

When doing a "repair install", hit F5.
Then, select "Standard 486", rather than ASPI,
or whatever the default.

You WILL lose APM, so you'll have to manually
turn off your machine after logging off or "shutting down".

But it allows you to force devices to use IRQ's you want to.
Otherwise, Windows overrides the CMOS settings.

A:audio/video is stuttering

Stuttering of audio/video...is probably not indicative of a malware problem. I will restore your log, if there is any indcation in your responses that your situation should be treated as a malware case. HJT logs are not permitted in the XP forum, such logs are malware tools and are handled in one of our malware forums.

Start/Run...type chkdks /r and hit Enter. Type Y in response to onscreen query and hit Enter. Reboot the system...the command will execute and the system will boot into XP when command has finished running.

Upon reboot of the system...defrag the system partition.

FWIW: 512MB is not an overwhelming amount to handle all system tasks. How large is your pagefile and is Windows managing it?

This happens at random points and i have also started noticing it whilst listening to music as well, as i get a sort of mechanical stuttering sound during playback. Would these be a problem with the hardware of something i have not done with the settings?

I have a real problem with audio and video stuttering badly on my computer. I am running Windows 7 and have run malware and virus scans on it, but they don't seem to help. The problem started shortly after I moved my computer from the basement because of some flooding. I don't have direct access to a hard wired internet hook up so I am using a Trendnet 54 Mbps wireless G USB adapter as my internet connection. The stuttering with all music players and when I am streaming from the internet. My mouse is also very jerky on the screen at times. Could the way I'm accessing the internet be causing the problems, or is it just a coincidence that the problems started when I moved my computer? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi there, I am new here, I have searched the net for an answer to my problem but have been unsuccessful so have decided to post here...

My computer starts stuttering (audio and video) for about 20 seconds every 2-3minutes when I play microsoft flight simulator 2004 which is highly frustrating. It runs fine on 24frames/sec (which I have locked it at) then it goes to 1-3frames for about 20seconds then returns and is fine for 2-3mins. This is a recent problem, I run it on a reasonably capable laptop, it worked perfectly fine for 9months, and it has been like this for the past few weeks.

I've opened the task manager during the stuttering fit and the CPU was running at 98%-100% then after dropped to around 30%.

Specs: Laptop, AMD Turion x2 2.2Ghz, ATI Radeon HD3200, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD

Hope that is comprehensive enough info, I'm not great with computers, but I can't think it is a hardware problem as it worked fine for a good 9months.

Thank you all in advance

Since this morning when I turned on my pc I have been experiencing some strange issues and wondered if anyone had any advice or suggestions.

When moving the mouse around in a figure of eight with nothing open, every few seconds it skips for about 1/10th second. This is a brand new issue, but I was also having trouble with my wireless internet speed last night, for which I use a usb netgear wna1100 stick.

It seems my pc is dieing in some way but I'm unsure how to identify whats causing the problem as I don't have lots of spare bits to put in.

Things I've tried so far:
Checked mobo + graphics card temps, both ~40-50C idle.
Malware Bytes found nothing
Full AVG scan found nothing
SeaTools hard drive scan found nothing

This leaves me to suspect a hardware fault somewhere else.

My system specs:
Windows 7 64-Bit Home Edition
Sapphire Radeon 4870 2GB
AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400+
Gigabyte M57SLI-S4
Microsoft Sidewinder Mouse

The stuttering is fairly random, but always present and it never goes for longer than about 10 seconds without doing it.

Any ideas? Dieing motherboard or HD? How can i tell without replacing them?

A:Video/Audio Stuttering issue

What program are you using for video? How many other processes are running? Have you tried other media players? Is the stuttering happening when you're viewing or listening on the Internet or when you listen/view files on your hard drive? If you're streaming stuff from online, your Internet connection could be the issue. A lot of network traffic will cause a lot of buffering and stuttering like that.

Hello everyone,a year ago i bought and assembled PC components by myself and i was glad that everything worked well, smooth, audio&video in PC games and Movies were flawless, up untill recently when the audio and video start to stutter really bad, especially when Starting the PC,connecting or disconnecting from internet; thats when it spikes really bad something video and sound stuttering and freezing for seconds.
Here is a picture taken with the latency tester after i disconnected the internet.In normal use the stutter appears once at 10-20 minutes, sometimes more sometime less.
The PC components are:
Athlon II 620 2.6GHZ
2GB DDR3 TEAMGROUP RAM
HIS ATI 4770
Corsair 400W
Gigabyte MA785GT-UD3H

I cant recall the moment when the stutter happened the first time and why, but its happened after my PSU started to behave in a weird manner, its vent making an upsetting noise.It somehow stops when the PC is under heavy load, in a movie or a game, and it starts again when its idling.Its not a squal or whine, but more of a buzzing noise ,something like this .This started when i moved the pc and the desk in another place in the room.

So please do help me, I can provide more information, just ask; i'm doing fine with computers but those 2 problems didnt happen to me before so i don't know how to fix them.

A:Audio&Video Stuttering on my homemade PC

Your PSU is failing, this can be caused by various things, such as a failing fan, or being choked with dust and fluff. This causes erratic behaviour, because the power to the video card fluctuates. You will need to replace the Power Supply Unit, and preferably with one that can supply a bit more power. The card you are using uses roughly 200 Watts under load. Any other equipment you are using also draws power, so you may be on or above the limit for that power supply.

Hello, About a week ago, I began having problems with my audio and video. When I would watch a video on youtube or play a song from Media Player or iTunes, it would momentarily pause every second. Obviously this is a frustrating problem. Also, my mouse and keyboard stutter at this same interval. The letters I type do get typed out but they have to catch up so to speak where they don't get typed out as soon as I press them. This all happens as soon as I start my system and the timing never changes; the stutter occurs every second- I've even timed it out to be one stutter per second. I did a system restore to an earlier time and nothing improved- I checked for updates, and checked to make sure that my ATA/ATAPI Devices were in DMA Mode at the suggestion of another forum where a person with similar problems solved theirs. Here is the procedure: http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/device/storage/IDE-DMA.mspxBut this didn't do anything for me either. I've run multiple MBAM scans, my other virus program (NOD 32) and Spybot, but nothing came up. The only other thing I can think of is that whenever I start up my computer, the black screen at the beginning says that it can't detect an AC power source. I'm assuming that this means that my battery is dead (I have a laptop). If the power cord gets unplugged, even if for a second, the entire computer just dies. The computer worked fine even with this power error message, so that's why I think that I just need a new b... Read more

Specs if it matters
Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop
1.5 ghz
512 MB RAM
128 MB ATI Mobility Radeon X300
Windows XP Service Pack 3 (2 original, but updated to 3 over Windows Update)

Okay so I reformatted and installed Windows XP SP 2 recently. Sometime after doing that and downloading numerous Microsoft updates and updated drivers for my Dell Inspiron 6000, I noticed that my mouse cursor stutters a little bit from time to time as I move it around. I think it happened even after a fresh installation of Winows XP, but I can't remember for sure.

How should I go about solving this problem? I already run my spybot, adaware, and Avast virus scan, but they haven't fix anything. My drivers are all up to date too I think. Below is my HijackThis log

A:Stuttering with mouse, audio, and video

Oh I forgot to mention. My Primary IDE is running in DMA mode so that's not an issue.

The problem still exists even after Dell repaired the laptop. It took two weeks to get the repaired laptop back from Dell.

The problem is:
When I plug or unplug the charger while playing music/video on laptop, the laptop is freezing with buzzing sound for 1-2 seconds when the laptop begins charging. Even after Dell repaired the laptop, the problem still exists.
Tried installing the updated drivers, the laptop works fine only for a short period and then after some time the same freezing with buzzing sound problem comes back.
Also, if the laptop is restarted it works fine for a while and then the same freezing with buzzing sound problem comes back.

Not satisfied with the Dell and Dell repair services.
Need help with this problem.
