unfixable problem with sound distortion when CPU spikes.
Posted 01 January 2013 - 05:02 PM
I'm hoping someone can help me with a problem that is driving me crazy, My PC has been suffering from sound distortion for about 2 months.
Basically, if I am watching a video on youtube (or listening to any audio via my pc) the sound starts crackling and completely distorts after a short while, it sounds kind of like a bitcrusher effect. I have made a video that shows the problem and i will attach it to this post.
The problems started after I decided to clean and update my PC, at that time I updated my chipset drivers, made some edits to the registry, installed new audio drivers, also i had a nasty virus attack. I am unsure which, if any of these would be the cause of the problem. Everything was working perfectly a few months ago.
This problem also occurs when i am listening to music via any media player. The only workaround I have when the sound starts to break up is to turn my speakers off and on under "playback devices", this fixes the problem for a shot while before the problem comes back again. (this can be seen in the attached video @ 2:35)

Downloaded and used Latencymon & DCP Latency checker
changing power management to High performance.

changed firewire PCI slot
Can anyone help / suggest what the problem might be?
