Windows 10: Random Stuttering / DPC Latency Nightmare
8 GB memory
NVIDIA Geforce GTX 650 Ti BOOST
2x Crucial C300 64GB in RAID0 for os (worked perfectly on win7/8.x)
Samsung Spinpoint F4EG 2TB
WD Caviar Green 3TB
As you can see this is pretty ancient hardware...
In terms of new drivers I only have/had to download the latest Geforce driver on a new install. Windows took care of the rest. And this worked just fine on win7/8.x for so long. Until win10 that is. The Asus drivers available for my mb are outdated by six years and Intel has no new storage control drivers for my setup.
I've tried LatencyMon for some time but it's difficult to pin it down. In my case its either ndis.sys, usbport.sys, dxgkrnl.sys etc. that's causing problems, it's completely random. However I get loads of hard pagefaults everytime when running LatencyMon.
Here is something strange.. I have steam installed with a few games. All of them installed on the os ssd. I NEVER get an audio stutter while playing graphic intensive games, like cod ghosts.
This makes me think that the fault lies somewhere in the Microsoft sphere. Problems handling active multible drives or something?
Installed Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3120677)
after that I don't have audio stutters, but video only (freezes)
ndis.sys is 89ms DPC highest
Unfortunately I'm still getting stutters on my end, even after the update
But at least with the old Win7 drivers they're at a more manageable level of annoyingness.
I used to get the stuttering when my system came out of sleep. I stopped using sleep and use hibernate instead and the problem seems to have been eliminated.
I had this problem in addition to audio buzzing/stuttering when I installed win10. I was hoping these were related.
They were not The buzzing continues...
When googling 'windows 10 audio buzzing' Loads of people have this on wildly different hardware, but no solutions what so ever. I'm thinking this must be at the Microsoft end
How is the stuttering as of just now? Since we now have somewhat mature win10.. updates with explanations..
In my case the stutter is gone if I close my torrent client. This is new. I used to get stutters randomly all the time, even when my torrent client was closed. Network related.... but where
It's actually significantly better for me now. I still get them but they're FAR rarer than they used to be. Used to be like 4-5 times a day, now it's about 4-5 times per week.
So yeah, it seems like some of the updates have been improving things bit by bit over time, thankfully.
I've been having the same problem when i came across this topic, it made me write the first reply here. For me the solution was as simple as changing the router beacon interval to 100, over 100 causes stutter on windows 10 and torrent client open.
Just for record, audio stutter issues still exist after all of updates. Not so much but it still.
At first everything seemed fine. Everything was working, I only needed to upgrade the VGA driver.
I have a xonar D1 card with uni-xonar which worked immediately.
Than when I listened to music I noticed clicking and stuttering which got...
I've been having an issue with my sound were it starts stuttering after some time for no reason. I've downloaded LatencyMon and it showed me that wdf01000.sys goes over 50ms after a couple of hours while ACPI.sys can go higher than 1ms. They both...
As a lot of you may or may not be aware, there has been an problem with latency whilst sound recording since W7 launched that wasn't present on XP or Vista.
Many had hoped it would be addressed in 8/8.1 but it wasn't so i'm wondering...
Nine times I have failed in installing Windows 10. When I reach the circle and percent screen and Copying Files is done, the computer restarts. When it loads back, surely the blue Windows sign and the loop appear. Then they disappear. Then a black...
