Ok I’m having an unusual audio glitch and the thing is I’m not sure what the source is. So far I have worked out it’s not any of my HDDs as it’s happening on media from all of them and It’s not the HDD connections same reasoning as why it’s not the HDDs. The thing is I’m not too sure how to describe it it’s sort of like what happens when you’re listening to music and then open an memory intensive program and you get that chipping/skipping in the audio. I plan to run a memory test this Monday/Tuesday while I’m out. I did have a similar issue with my last computer and I fixed by using a different sound card but with this one I’m not sure I can unless this card will go into a PCI-E X16 slot.


Specs:
Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Gigabyte GA-H55M-UD2H
NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450
4GB DDR3
idle https://dl.dropbox.c.../sound/idle.PNG
Music playing https://dl.dropbox.c...sound/music.PNG
video playing https://dl.dropbox.c...sound/video.PNG
processes with video playing https://dl.dropbox.c...ith%20video.PNG

and just to add my CPU is
https://dl.dropbox.c...ound/system.PNG

All drivers are up to date and something is telling me it could be flash related cause when watching anything on a flash based player it happens more and there are two instances of flash plugin running. But I did a clean install of flash which seemed to fix it but then about 2 or 3 days later it started happening again. So any help with this would be greatly appreciated. also if you need information please tell me what you need.

Thanks!

FIXED!!!

turns out it was ESET was the source of the issue and have switched to MSE!

Yeah, I don't think that sound card will go into a PCI-E x16 slot. Does it happen on all media that you play? What's your memory usage like and CPU usage when you're playing media?

Sounds like your CPU is simply underpowered for the number of apps you run at once.

New development: it seems closing uTorrent stops it from happening or at least i think it stops it from happening as much.

Nope false alarm.

That soundcard will fit in a x16 slot.

With PCI-Express as long as it fits in the socket, it will work... most boards have second or third sockets that are electrically keyed to X8 yet presented as a X16..

A X1/4/8 will fit in an X16 slot.

Have you tried updating your sound drivers?

^ Yeah as i said in the OP all drivers are up to date so it will fit in the longer X16 slot and work?

just wanting to know would bad memory cause a BSOD 100% of the time?

Well a little update Getting a new sound card/chip did not fix this issue I'm starting to think it's software based.

I have the same problem, and I know what you mean. Mine just started around a week ago.
And with me too, it is not a processor overload problem either. My Ultrabook is quite powerful and fast, and no matter what I throw at it, my ram usually never goes over 50% used, and the processor is hardly using much power either, unless re-encoding a bunch of video files at once, with many many programs running, it gets up there a tad and the fan gets louder.
Anyways, it does happen while using different media programs whether they come off the ssd, external drive, or the internet.
Doesn't do it steasy, just the odd click and pop here and there.
I have no idea why it's doing it. Nor have I really tried to figure it out, I just know it's definitely not due to lack of power.

Thinking back to http://www.neowin.ne...n-screen-crash/ this issue i had which seems to have been fixed could this be the result of another bad windows update?
