Recently I've been noticing that my computer seems to have frequent short (maybe around half a second) freezes no matter what I'm doing. I notice it most when playing videogames, where the screen will freeze for a while before returning to normal. It's also noticeable when typing in some programs, where i will see nothing come out until a few seconds after I've typed it. When watching videos on the internet, the video will randomly freeze at a frame for a while (with audio still going) before skipping to synch up with the audio. If the videos are on my hard drive however, the problems are much more noticeable; Both audio and visuals stutter almost constantly. I first noticed this problem around a week ago when the sounds of a game i was playing (League of Legends) kept repeating for several seconds each time they played.

I'm not really sure if is this is a hardware or a software problem and the issues came out of nowhere (as far as i can tell)
Any help is appreciated.

Your speccy log looks clean. A lot of users using High end Vaio laptops have been complaining on stuttering/freezing problems on media and gaming area. Most solutions are sound drivers reinstall or lowering some settings but different laptops offer varied solutions as seen on some hardware threads.

Travel to Sony Website Support and encode your laptop model and operating system. Look for the Realtek HD Audio 64 bit, latest driver. Download and save it to your hard drive. Go to device manager and look for the Realtek Audio. Right-click uninstall, then run the driver you have just downloaded. Check the difference.

Reinstalling my Realktek sound driver hasn't helped. Any other ideas? Should i try the same with my NVIDIA sound drivers?

Yes, I would venture on any possible fix at this point. The linked thread is conducing of a software update rather than a hardware problem but surely not improbable in any case.
