Windows 10: Experiencing slight pause every four seconds

    Sorry, I don't know. Drivermax identifies the drivers by name, I think.

    Above I suggested simply restoring e.g. groups of drivers - if you end up restoring all the 1709 drivers with no benefit, then we know this is not worth pursuing. At present it's a trial and error game. Try restoring, say, 50% then the other 50%. Make it a quick assessment as to whether restoring them helps at all. Don't try discriminating at this stage.

    The thing I don't know is when Windows might try to replace them. Assuming it doesn't from its own repository, best try this with internet disconnected.

    Experiencing slight pause every four seconds


    I think Windows hung after I earlier restored all the 1709 drivers. I'll try again. If it still hangs, I suppose it still makes sense to try restoring only some of the drivers, as you suggest.

    Why You didnt show ur report from LatencyMon? For me, it is like conversation with blind man about colours.

    Small example:

    ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ _____
    CONCLUSION
    ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ _____
    Your system appears to be having trouble handling real-time audio and other tasks. You are likely to experience buffer underruns appearing as drop outs, clicks or pops. One or more DPC routines that belong to a driver running in your system appear to be executing for too long. At least one detected problem appears to be network related. In case you are using a WLAN adapter, try disabling it to get better results. One problem may be related to power management, disable CPU throttling settings in Control Panel and BIOS setup. Check for BIOS updates.
    LatencyMon has been analyzing your system for 3:30:30 (h:mm:ss) on all processors.

    Reported CPU speed: 1094 MHz

    Note: reported execution times may be calculated based on a fixed reported CPU speed. Disable variable speed settings like Intel Speed Step and AMD Cool N Quiet in the BIOS setup for more accurate results.


    ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ _____
    MEASURED INTERRUPT TO USER PROCESS LATENCIES
    ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ _____
    The interrupt to process latency reflects the measured interval that a usermode process needed to respond to a hardware request from the moment the interrupt service routine started execution. This includes the scheduling and execution of a DPC routine, the signaling of an event and the waking up of a usermode thread from an idle wait state in response to that event.

    Highest measured interrupt to process latency (Ás): 25017,052616
    Average measured interrupt to process latency (Ás): 12,145507

    Highest measured interrupt to DPC latency (Ás): 25008,631571
    Average measured interrupt to DPC latency (Ás): 4,031386


    ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ _____
    REPORTED ISRs
    ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ _____
    Interrupt service routines are routines installed by the OS and device drivers that execute in response to a hardware interrupt signal.

    Highest ISR routine execution time (Ás): 499,354662
    Driver with highest ISR routine execution time: ndis.sys - Specyfikacja NDIS (Network Driver Interface Specification), Microsoft Corporation

    Highest reported total ISR routine time (%): 0,107517
    Driver with highest ISR total time: ndis.sys - Specyfikacja NDIS (Network Driver Interface Specification), Microsoft Corporation

    ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ _____
    REPORTED DPCs
    ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ _____
    DPC routines are part of the interrupt servicing dispatch mechanism and disable the possibility for a process to utilize the CPU while it is interrupted until the DPC has finished execution.

    Highest DPC routine execution time (Ás): 2943,080439
    Driver with highest DPC routine execution time: ndis.sys - Specyfikacja NDIS (Network Driver Interface Specification), Microsoft Corporation

    ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ _____
    REPORTED HARD PAGEFAULTS
    ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ _____
    Hard pagefaults are events that get triggered by making use of virtual memory that is not resident in RAM but backed by a memory mapped file on disk. The process of resolving the hard pagefault requires reading in the memory from disk while the process is interrupted and blocked from execution.

    NOTE: some processes were hit by hard pagefaults. If these were programs producing audio, they are likely to interrupt the audio stream resulting in dropouts, clicks and pops. Check the Processes tab to see which programs were hit.

    Process with highest pagefault count: msmpeng.exe

    Total number of hard pagefaults 64434
    Hard pagefault count of hardest hit process: 13219
    Number of processes hit: 130

    This informations aren't simple to understand. For me - much better and complex will be log from xperf. Read something about it here: https://randomascii.wordpress.com/20...-the-easy-way/

    I've attached the report from LatencyMon. The text (as well as the Drivers and CPUs tabs within the app) indicate storport.sys to be the culprit. I researched that file initially but didnĺt find anything applicable.

    Update: I used UIforETW. Here is a link to the compressed log.

    Quick answer cause i am on phone. LatencyMon indicated storport.sys, but what does it mean? Look on my report. I had opened chrome during whole time and this chrome consumed over 90% summary cpu cycles and u cant know it from LatencyMon's report. That is why we need some more precision tool. UiforETW it is some like gui for xperf .

    Thanks for chiming in. I used UIforETW, performed a trace (with the default settings), and compressed the ETL log. Here's a link to the compressed file.

    Can U make same log from 1709?

    I would like to compare the operations from the stack.

    Edit:
    What a option do u have in bios about sata controler - AHCI or RAID?

    Here's a link to the compressed UIforETW log from 1709. It's considerably smaller than the one for 1803. Not sure why that is. I ran the trace for about 10 seconds for both 1803 and 1709.

    My BIOS' Advanced Chipset Settings > SATA Mode is set to RAID. The only other option is ATA.

    I looked for drivers and i found something this:

    But i didnt spend much time about investigation. I think You can check this way and then try replace driver.

    I cant edit my post.

    Maybe U can change ur sata driver to standard sata ahci controller from microsoft?
