  1. Windows 10 performance lagging and audio glitching


    About an hour into using my pc, it doesnt matter what i am doing whether it is watching youtube or playing a high preformance game my pc starts lagging and the frames drop significantly followed by audio cutting out amd making a buzzing noise. This problem has been happening for about 4 months now and I cannot seem to find any solution to it. I have also updated and removed and reinstalled just about every driver I can think of

    :)

    Windows 10 tiny lag spikes and audio glitch

    Hi Mars,

    This issue regarding the lag spikes and audio glitch can be caused by a variety of factors, such as outdated drivers.
    For us to come up with the proper resolution and to identify the exact cause of the issue, we would like to ask for additional information:

    • Which Windows version or exact build are you using? To get the Windows version and build number of your PC:

    1. Go to Settings.

    2. Click System.

    3. Click About.

    You can also do this:

    1. Hit Start.

    2. Type winver.

    3. Press Enter.

    • Have you tried to check your update history? If not, kindly do so.
      This will allow us to check or see if there were updates installed prior to the issue.
    • Does the issue only happen when you're using a specific program like a web browser or a media player?
    • Have you tried updating your drivers? If not yet, kindly follow these steps:

    1. Open Start, enter Device Manager, and select it from the list of results.

    2. Under Sound, video and game controllers, select your sound card, open it, select the
    Driver tab, and select Update Driver.

    If Windows doesn't find a new driver, look for one on the device manufacturer's website and follow their instructions.

    We'll always be here if you need further assistance.

    Lag spikes / glitches affecting performance


    I've been having a problem for the last week or so, basically I keep getting lag spikes / glitches that affect the performance of my machine. This manifests itself in the most obvious way as what can best be described as occasional "gzzzfchzz" sounds (much like a BSoD sound while playing video, but only for a fraction of a second). I first noticed it on YouTube and thought it may be a browser issue, but I've since experienced it playing literally any video or sound, and less obviously while doing anything whatsoever on my machine (although since they're only for a fraction of a second they're less obvious when doing anything without sound).

    Someone else seems to have had the same problem as me:
    Occasional micro-stuttering / lag-spikes - Windows 10 Forums
    Although they don't say exactly how they fixed it...

    I've had Windows 10 installed since the public release day, I have all drivers updated to the latest versions, and I'm running on an Intel i7-4770K (not overclocked) with 32GB of DDR3 RAM and a Samsung 840 EVO SSD so it's a system that really shouldn't be encountering any lag, especially just playing Netflix or an MP3.

    Any help would be appreciated since it's driving me mad.

    Here's a little clip of what happens, the glitch is half way through at 5 seconds:
