    Mouse Lag & Sound Distortion

    WinVer 2004
    After several days since last boot, I start to notice mouse lag, almost like a stutter (Logitech M510 wireless mouse). Also, system sounds are increasingly distorted; e.g. when starting a reboot with an open application, I get the Windows chime that accompanies the warning message. That chime is quite distorted. The reboot, however, clears the mouse lag problem and if I reboot again right away, the message chime is clear.
    Any clues? It's not a major issue since a reboot solves it but I'm curious if there's a setting somewhere that's the culprit

    sound distorted after windows 10 anniversary upgrade

    This is where I'm at on my HP laptop with Windows 10 and the Anniversary update.

    I completed step #3 "hardware and sound" but that took me to an option for "sound, speakers." There was no "properties" as step #4 suggests. I selected "sound, speakers" and then found "properties." After selecting "properties" there was no "enhancements
    tab" as step #5 suggests.

    Regardless, I then uninstalled the realtek audio driver. I noticed that when I did this without restarting my laptop that the sound was now tinny, but not distorted as it was previously. After restarting, the sound was again full, yet distorted.

    Realtek still shows in my programs list, though it shows no memory is used.

    Thanks for your continued help.

    Sound Distortion w/ BT Headphones When I Move BT Mouse -- Help

    I got a BT dongle. When I listen to music through BT headphones and move my mouse at the same time I hear distortion. When I dont move my mouse theres no distortion.

    I got Realtek installed and its drivers updated. Thare are 2 options in the MS sound panel for headphones. One for BT headphones stereo and an other for BT non-stereo headphones. I enabled the one for stereo because it sounds better. But I hear distortion with the BT mouse. When I switch to the BT non-stereo option theres no distortion when I move my mouse but sound quality is bad.

    What do you suggest to hear BT stereo perfectly with no distortion when I move my mouse?
