Actually it is still doing it. It didn't do it last night though. Strange it is doing it again. Thought i had fixed the issue. Obviously not as easy as that. The console thing, is the driver/program that came with the Sound card. When i downloaded the newest drivers, also on the cd too. LIke giving you options for surround sound etc.
Personally, I tend to install just the drivers without the control program. But for XP I'm not sure if Windows can do 5.1 socket assignment without the control program? The card I installed was just for simple stereo speakers.
This is another popular PCI latency tool, maybe it will report all devices on your system correctly:
Hi, here is the PCi latency tool screenshot. Also i was reading another forum and the suggested DPC Latency checker. [url]http://www.thesycon.de/deu/latency_check.shtml Also running the program and disabling drivers while in the device manager and resetting the program. Once the red and yellow bars have gone it means it has solved the issue and can only see green bars. Etc. I will try this program and see what success i have (If any) and will post if i have found the problem. Also i just got rid of my wireless usb drivers, because some people have had problems with it. I don't normally use wireless at all. Not a problem for me, i mainly use ethernet. Here is the forum i was reading [url]http://www.sevenforums.com/sound-audio/26494-does-anyone-actually-have-sound-stuttering-fix-4.html
**Ahh. I see. But back to my problem, i'm still getting it even to the second i'm writing this. Really annoying now. I will try the DPC Latency tool and disable devices in device manager and will post if i have any success.
I did the DPC testing, absolutely nothing. I disabled every driver i could. And it still stuttered and went red + yellow. I think i disabled the monitor as i currently have a black screen. (Using another pc in the house at the moment) Although now i am not sure how to get the screen back to being able to view a picture. Damnit. Oncew i get that working, i will try with the chipset update(s) I'll try to search for earlier versions of the chipset and install/update it. And see what that does.
i've actually got this error ntoskrnl.exe is missing or corrupt. I know how to fix it, but i need to get into my hard drive on that computer to get the installation .iso off it. After i've done that and restored it, can't get into safe mode or last known good settings etc. But i will use a program called ubuntu to get into windows and get the file and then restore it. Pain in the butt. And then i will try the latency setting change. will post again. weither success of failure.
Been quiet for a while. I managed to do a format and clean install. No success. Doesn't help one bit. I tried the PCI Latency tool. Doesn't do anything at all. Changed it to 32, 64, 128 even 255. Nothing at all. Still got the problem. Back to using onboard audio now, way too annoying to try listen to music and play games etc.
