Hi guys,

 

I recently came across this strange issue. audiodg.exe uses up high CPU resources for no apparent reason, even when not playing any music. I'm using Windows 8 (64-bit) on an Acer laptop.

 

Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

 

UPDATE: Forgotten to mention, sometimes music/sound doesn't play for some strange reason.

Hi,

If you haven't upgraded to W8.1 I'd do that. Also, I'd confirm that I had the latest audio drivers installed. Then I'd run a full scan with my installed security software, after updating it.

Keep us posted

I had issues upgrading to Windows 8.1 (some error code appeared) that it had to roll back to Windows 8. I guess I should try again soon.

I would make sure the current software is clean and current before trying the upgrade. Makes life a bit easier most times.

Keep us posted
