I've noticed that when I'm watching some videos, the audio of that video will occassionally
sound like it's buzzing or being scratched like a dj does to a record.  It's sounds like it's happening due to
some lagging of the system not being able to handle whatever load it's under.
It seems to happen especially when I am photo editing at the same time as the song file playing in the background.   But it still happens even when just watching videos on facebook and moving my mouse around or typing at the same time.
I think it has something to do with the graphics card.  I'm currently using an old one:
NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GT.  My audio is RealTek High Defintion Audio, and I also NVIDIA
Virtual Audio Device (Wave Extensible) (WDM) showing up in my device manager.
I'm not exactly sure which is it that's causing it.
Does anyone know how to fix this buzzing/scratching sound?
Windows 7 Ultimate SP 1,  AMD Phenom II X6 1070T,  mobo A880GU3,  DDR3 8GB

Ok I figured it out with some more researching.


It's apparently the GeForce Experience installation.  It has process called nvstreamsvc that seems to be the culprit.

I just disabled the service from starting up and it's not causing that buzzing/scratching lag in audio anymore.
