    Audio Stutter??


    I have a problem with the Windows 8 preview, my audio driver and everything works fine, or so it seems. However when playing music or a game or a movie randomely sometimes often sometimes not the audio will have a slight hiccup or stutter, it does not do this right after a restart but it gets worse the longer the pc is on. If i restart the problem goes away for a bit. This does not happen in win7 for me. Whats the issue? My mobo uses realtec audio

    Hi,

    Realtek <<< Install HD Audio Codec driver from the right side.
    Realtek HD Audio 2.67 audio driver download from Guru3D.com <<< Mirror link to same driver

    Very important to update all other drivers too, from manufacturers' sites, especially wireless network and then wired.

    If you have 3rd party security installed of any type, uninstall to test.

    Cool - in that case I wouldn't mind looking over the system to see what I can find. You can run the tool found in the top most thread in the Crash and Debugging subforum, then attach the zip it makes to here, in a new post.

    Your machine suffered from a bsod today, caused by your very old Marvell storage driver:

    Code:
    3: kd> lmvm mv61xx
    start             end                 module name
    fffff880`00c19000 fffff880`00c5f000   mv61xx   T (no symbols)           
        Loaded symbol image file: mv61xx.sys
        Image path: \SystemRoot\System32\drivers\mv61xx.sys
        Image name: mv61xx.sys
        Timestamp:        Thu Mar 19 23:48:21 2009 (49C31205)
        CheckSum:         000320F6
        ImageSize:        00046000
        Translations:     0000.04b0 0000.04e4 0409.04b0 0409.04e4
    Update him from here: Marvell - Support - Driver Downloads

    -------

    Visit ASUS site for your motherboard to update this ancient notorious driver:

    Code:
    ASACPI   ASACPI.sys   Sun Mar 27 22:30:36 2005
    It will be in the Downloads | Utilties section. It's name is ATK0110.

    ---------

    Logitech game (pad, controller?) driver could use an update:

    LGBusEnum LGBusEnum.sys Mon Nov 23 20:36:48 2009
    LGVirHid LGVirHid.sys Mon Nov 23 20:36:48 2009

    --------

    AMD Video card driver could use an update:

    atikmdag atikmdag.sys Wed Nov 09 21:52:46 2011

    AMD Catalyst 12.3 WHQL 32-bit download from Guru3D.com <<< (Or, you can install Windows 8 Consumer Preview driver instead.)



    ---------

    And finally, back to square one. Your Realtek HD Audio driver is ancient:

    RTKVHD64 RTKVHD64.sys Fri May 22 14:04:20 2009 (4A16E924)

    Update from the link(s) in my first post.


    ------------

    You're welcome and enjoy.

    Those preview drivers dont work at all with the 4800 series and thus i had to install the only version that does work for my card, the logitech drivers came with the newest software they provided, and i literally just reinstalled my audio using that link you provided. I got the BSOD when it tried install the marvell drivers directly from the asus site for more mobo. I will try to install the link you provided but other then that there is nothing really i can update.

    Sure, the preview driver works for any and all HD cards.

    Logitech's site is good to download from.

    As far as reinstalling audio, you'll have better success by uninstalling the driver in the device manager while also checking the box to delete the driver. Then run the installer after. Then reboot.

    Don't download the ASUS storage driver. Use the link provided.
