Sound and video stutters

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Okay, I hadn't used my desktop for 4 months and coming back to using it I noticed a small problem, every few minutes sound and video (display) stutters.

This happens everywhere, the desktop, browsing the web, playing music, playing videogames, even the startup animation and sound before the login screen stutters at times.

I've got every single driver up to date, I've checked everything I could and uninstalled things I no longer needed installed. I've been watching different things my computer does when it happens and there's no changes in CPU load, RAM usage, swap usage, neither of my drives are accessed any different, net upload/download is the same.

I've poked around my computer enough to know it's an obscure problem, and probably has some obscure fix. That's the reason I'm posting to Overclock.net in hopes that someone has heard of and knows a fix to a similar problem.


My specs:
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ 3.0GHz
NVidia GeForce GTX 460 (Downgraded to PCIe x16 1.0 by motherboard)
3GB RAM (Forgot exact specs, haven't touched it since I ran Vista 32-bit)
Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM SATA as the main drive
Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM IDE as the swap drive
Chipset is nForce 570-SLI for AMD
Integrated Realtek audio (unsure of the exact chip)
I'm unsure of my PSU but I know it's high enough to provide for my system.


If anyone knows what might be happening please post what you know.

I have the same problem, reinstalling my graphics card drivers reduced the intensity of it. However it still happens sometimes.

I would start there, completely remove all drivers and install new ones.

What graphics card are you using? Make/Model would be nice too.

I've got the Gigabyte GV-N460OC-1GI

Are you connected by HDMI and having the sound go through it as well? Try using the DVI port and some external speakers and see if that clears up the propblem.

I would never use HDMI honestly, unless I bothered buying a console (Not gonna happen). I am connected through DVI with Turtle Beaches.

This problem had not shown up until the recent graphics driver update I believe, I think I'll see if the Beta driver is available and try that, or roll back if it's still not fixed.


Edit:
I didn't try installing the drivers, no reason to when I took a peek into the Nvidia forums. It seems the 8, 4, and 5 series cards are experiencing stutters ranging from just games, to videos, to stuff like mine that happens in general. It seems Nvidia hasn't pinned down the cause for awhile now, as they've had the problem since driver 258.xx according to one of the posters who went back to check a bunch of versions.

Edit2:
<geekout>I wish they would fix it, because I went back to GRID and finally learned to drift, and GRID isn't like Crysis, I can't compensate so easily for the occasional stutter when I'm trying to drift around a corner.</geekout>
