I have two laptops that this issue has presented on ( i don't remember if it happened on win vista but it could have, so if it did its a win 7/vista issue) ( also one of the laptops whole inside was replaced i think 2X, so you could say 3-4 computers i guess then) Plus a 7 year old desktop i have. The issue is that when your downloading, or even when a large or possibly small amount of bandwidth is being used, if your watching streaming audio/video or even video/audio on your hard drive you may see choppiness, or usually hear static or poppy audio or something of that sort. I believe its a windows issue because my desktop is a custom PC, and before it had win 7 on it i never had this issue with windows XP. All of these computers are capable of easily handling this type of media and downloading. The laptops are all dual cores with 4 GB of ram and the desktop is a 2.6 P4 with 2 gb of ram. And i think the chances of having potentially 4 bad computers, and a desktop that suddenly goes bad in the same way is pretty slim. Plus its not the internet connection, Ive checked it in other area's with WIFI.
Operating systems are win 7 home premium and windows 7 Professional.
The problem happens almost always, depending on how much bandwidth is being used, its more noticeable when 100+ kbps is going through.
Trying to get help from Microsoft, but those idiots are Try it in safe mode, try it on a clean boot....its like uhm the audio drivers are all turned off then.....duh
Anyone have any solutions or idea's?
