    Games start lagging durring play


    I have an HP Envy 17-jo29nr that has a GeForce 750m in it. Running Windows 8.1. It's been fine for a year and now when I'm playing games (Wolenstein The New Order, Watchdogs, even Saints Row The Third), the sound will crackle and the game will lag really bad and freeze up for a bit. I've been googling resolutions for this issue and not finding any kind of solution. I have the latest drivers. I'm doubtful about getting it resolved here, but if anyone would like to have at it with my problem, I would greatly appreciate it. I'm not sure what other info I should be providing. I must say, sometimes when I'm playing a movie in VLC, it'll do the sound crackling thing and lag a little bit and sometimes the sound will do this on my computer briefly. Doesn't happen with music. The VLC uses the intel GPU though, I have no clue what's going on.

    That's slightly newer,
    6.10.6495.0 and my latest one is 6.10.6491.0.. However, why would I need to download a driver from softpedia?! Wouldn't HP provide me with what I need? And I know they don't, but wouldn't IDT provide the drivers. Were did softpedia get that from? I don't see any reason why I would need to search drivers on softpedia, that's kind of nuts. I'll give it a try.

    Didn't mean to sound ungrateful, the frustration is that a newer driver exists and HP and ITD don't provide them.

    It's an HP computer, It doesn't use that, but Beats Audio.

    I'm not aware of any HP Envy in the past few years that doesn't use Beats Audio, my bad. And I had assumed IDT was a part of that, I didn't know it was different. Because when I install the beats audio, it's called the IDT driver. Clearly I don't know about any of this.

    I have never had Beats Audio but I thought it was just a software package like Dolby Digital Plus. Maybe not. But if it is, you should still install that driver I pointed to.

    Well yes drivers can be downloaded from manufactures sights. How ever and I think this is true for HP and it is for Asus the drivers they post in the support downloads are tested to work with your specific hardware. I get nervous downloading driver from any on but the NB manufacture or the Particular Parts manufacture website

    When you instal the Beats Audio driver, it's called the ITD driver and in the device manager, it just says IDT Audio device. Man, I just gave Saints Row the Third a run and when it started doing it, I hit ctrl shift esc and the GPU was all the way (quad core i7) to 100% and it said it was the game.
