i signed up specifically to say thank you. it was driving me mad and i hated my $2000 laptop to the point i would never use it.
now im all good.
After deactivating the Realtek HD Audio Manager in the Autostart section of the task manager the problem seems to be fixed, and as the machine reacts better than ever, so it seems, that FMAPP.exe had always been slowing down the system before.
I guess, the (completlely unnessecary) HD Audio Manager can not be uninstalled, because it seems to be part of the audio-driver package. I've had problems with the audio software of the sound device manufacturer interfering with the windows sound system before (ever since windows 95 came along). This time, it seems to be a problem with something like an indexing routine, as the load on the harddiscs is temporally ridiculously high.
Thanx for this great forum
Guys the same for me on my Lenovo Ideapad yoga 500, after stopping process in TM and renaming it to *.old I'm on cloud nine :-) No stuttering at all.
Folks, I had the same issue, but for me the fix was to move my mouse (Logitech G7) from a USB2 to a USB3 port. Someone else in this thread said this. I realised that my problem had only just started after a computer clean. I obviously plugged the mouse into a different port when I put it back together. I don't have the FMAPP.EXE process running, but I do have the file. I haven't renamed it. Just moved the Mouse USB port. This fix seems a bit weird, since my Mouse is quite old (pre-USB3 I think), but who cares if it works.
Yes its the Realtek Driver and its FMAPP.EXE file. By the way new driver update available. Just update via device manager. Its been permanently fixed.
Hej, you are correct. I tried latest driver 18.104.22.16824 and no stuttering with it
My mouse lag has come back today. I've already got the Realtek HDA driver v22.214.171.12424 installed. Guess I'll try the rename of the FMAPP.EXE file and see if that fixes it. Damn annoying.
