    Windows Realtek Audio Popping Problems (Realtek ALC662)


    Hello all, I just got Windows 8.1 Pro as a gift from a friend and installed it just a few hours ago, and I noticed that I am having audio problems.

    Basically put, it's sort of random when this happens, but it seems to happen when sounds play rapidly, as letting a audio que play it's part will play with no popping nosies, here is an example of me showing this by using the sound that plays when you change audio:
    Vocaroo | Voice message

    The first 10 seconds are me playing the sound slow, with no popping. Then the sound starts popping when I change volume rapidly.

    I also checked DPC Latency Checker and everything is running smoothly:

    I have all the latest drivers installed, and this happens with with no drivers. I just can't seem to figure out what the issue is here.

    EDIT: I forgot to mention that I've tried disabling drivers, removing the USB Keyboard and Mouse, as well as setting the audio to CD Quality.

    Thanks in Advance to the person who could help me with this.

    What type of speaker system are you using ? Monitor with HDMI, check video card settings ? Could be conflicting driver, possibly Video card. Also mattering to speakers used, check for loose connections, something could be disturbing speakers.

    Lots of reasons for popping and stuttering. Integrated card or PCI Slot Card?

    I'm using a Stereo system, and I've already checked my video settings as I am using a Monitor with HDMI (I stated that I tried disabling drivers earlier.)

    The audio is integrated and I have not found any loose connection.

Also be hardware or drivers, as said in link i showed you, HDMI Audio in sound may need to be disabled. Also other drivers on system, go to manufacturer's website for updates to your model. Even PSU can do this.

    I already stated that all my drivers are updated....

    I said that I tried Step 1 and 4, and I've also tried those other steps with no results.

    Try disconnecting any WiFi if you have it, to rule out this as a cause. Any other speakers you can try ?

    Hey mate, I went to the website for your drivers, and many of them are listed for XP - Windows 7, with only a couple being for Windows 8. Chances are, this computer was NOT intended for 8, and you may face stability issues. This would imply that it is a problem with your computer, and not Windows 8 in itself.

    I understand you updated your drivers. However, try uninstalling the audio driver and then reinstalling, provided you haven't previously uninstalled the old driver first before installing the newest one. This driver is listed as being 8.1 friendly, so it should work just fine. If you're careful, you could also try the BIOS update.

    There may be other gimmicks and tricks you could try, but it may not work, as your computer was not built for 8. Good luck though!

    Yes looking at your model also, had same conclusions as DustSailor. Realtek i find here different from your motherboard site
    Realtek

    Also having difficult time finding update to Integrated AMD Graphics card not specifying 4250 model you have for the newest driver shown.
    Motherboard site has none either, believing may needed to update this. Yes, saw BIOS update but was precautions at motherboard site to update it unless having more issues, be careful there.
