Audio and/or video playback all screwy

So basically the sound and video on my machine has gone kaput and I can't figure out why. All streaming videos and audio from the internet load and begin playing the first second or so, then completely hang. I can click around the time bar at the bottom of videos and it will move to that part of the playback, and then hangs again after beginning to playback for a second.


*.wmv's on my harddrive playback incredibly choppy and low res.


I have an EVGA 131-GT-E767-TR LGA 1366 X58 motherboard with onboard Realtek Audio. Windows 7 64bit.


Other than that, I use FL Studio which uses ASIO4ALL audio drivers to speak directly to the sound card, instead of the OS.



I've updated GeForce video drivers, Realtek highdef audio drivers and uninstalled and re-installed the ASIO4ALL to see if maybe that was causing the issue.



Any help is greatly appreciated! I'm a bit stuck here...






*Edit: Just played some FRAPS footage that is *.avi format and the video playback plays through, but the sound cuts out after a second. I'm thinking it's definitely a sound issue.

Is this computer the same with your last thread posted at the Malware Removal Section of BleepingComputer?

First, thanks for your help and the reply -- You BC folks are pro.


I appreciate the forum link and it lead to an odd deal. Just before checking this thread I opened a youtube video to see if the problem was presisting and sadly it was. I then followed your link and downloaded the DPC Latency checker from www.thesycon.de/ as suggested by niemiro on the Sysnative forums as an optional first step. I ran the program and the text box readout "This machine should be able to handle real-time streaming of audio and/or video data without drop-outs." So I opened a youtube video to watch for the drop and the video played through fine. A check with FL studio, a reboot and recheck and everything is running smooth again... which is somewhat unfortunate only because I can't reproduce the problem.


In any case, it works now and I'll come bug you later when it happens again. In the meantime I'll keep checking the DPC and run through the other steps of niemiro's post to see if I can jar it loose and/or fix it.


Edit: I forgot to answer your question; yes it's the same computer.
